Photoshop CC: Why was auto-complete in File Info removed from the latest (2014) version?

When using the File Info section of the previous version of PS CC prior to the newest 2014 version, I could simply type in the first one or two letters of any of the fields and the program would auto-fill (or suggest) the rest of the text for that field. With the newest (2014) version of PS CC it isn't doing that...and I'm told this feature was no longer included in the newest version. To me that's ridiculous that they removed this feature, as it saved me a ton of time. Is there any way that we can request that this auto-complete feature be reinstated into the newest version?

Are you using Photoshop CC 2019 (version 20.x)? This feature was restored in the latest version.

Autocomplete list will be displayed by for the single line and multiline text fields in File Info dialog. It also shows separate list while entering each array value in the array property text fields. An option was added to disable this feature in Preferences dialog of File Info. The autocomplete entries for a property are stored and shared for all applications that use fileinfo dialog. Max entries stored per property for now are: 20. It displays scrollable list with 5 entries being visible at a time. If a customer wants to, they can clear this list as well.
