Bug: Must type artist name twice when adding unknown artist credit in 1.8 (still in 763) [Report is in]

[As this poor little report may have been overlooked in the Software room where I created it, I hope it is OK to move it here for the consideration of @support]

Reproduced with Windows desktop version and Android tablet (not on phone as there seems to be no editing option), don’t know about iOS, macOS

  1. Edit album or track > Credits
  2. Click “Add credit”
  3. Keyboard focus is automatically in Choose Artist > Filter. Type into Filter to search for an artist that does not exist yet.
  4. The “[+] Create Artist” field is shown, click it

In 1.7, the “[+] Create Artist” field was automatically pre-populated with the artist name as just typed into the search filter.
This allowed a quick check & confirm, or a final edit to a possibly mistyped name

The “[+] Create Artist” field is empty when it appears.
This means that you have to type the same name again that you just typed into the filter to search for it.
After running into this a few times, you start to copy the name from the Filter before clicking “Create Artist” which is a silly thing having to do.
