Wish Clear Filter Box From Library Manager After a Library Is Checked

    The libraries manager pane on the right side of the IDE has a filter box where you can type the start of a library name to search for in the list. Suppose I type ja, the JavaObject library name appears. I select it by putting a check mark to its left.The way it is now, after you check the library, the filter box still shows the search string you entered unless you manually delete its characters or click the x.
    You like to see the filter box automatically clear out your search string and the library list revert back to the full list, so you may select another.

    What if you want more than one library containing 'ja'?
    You would have to type it again.

    Most generally the chances that you want to select more than one lib at a time that starts with the same text and in the same project is remote, but possible.

    I agree it is a rare occasion but oddly enough I just had that issue myself.
    Don't forget that it does not need to start with those characters. It merely must contain them.

    e.g. Adding 'XU" libraries.
    :D
