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?

I agree. I use it for my newspaper photos and I now have to copy/paste info and captions, wasting more time than I care to. I don't know why it was changed in the first place.

We need this feature. Agree with Dennis. There are things I need to repeat in ever photo that I send to the newspaper. Auto fill was a great feature. Templates do a lot but the auto fill saved a lot of time and avoided mistakes.

Please let your customers know that you value them
Restore the information in File / File Info so it shows  up if it has been typed in previously?
Why is Adobe making me retype everything every time?
And no, I am not using LR for this feature ... I m editing a photo and want it back in PS where it was
Guess I will go back to using PS6
Aren't there enough examples of how you don't care about us anymore now that you've gone to the subscription?

You are not one who still uses CS6 EXTENDED like me for similar reasons. I know more of us...
