Change to Drop down list property control from Spotfire 6.5 to 7.9

Recently our spotfire server has changed from version 6.5 to 7.9.  When porting my spotfire dashboard from 6.5 to 7.9, I noticed a change to the behavior of the the Drop-Down List Property control.  I was populating the choices of the drop-down list property control with the unique values in a column from a  table which could be about 50 to 100 unique choices.  In spotfire 6.5, you could start typing the first few characters and it would jump to that spot in the drop-down menu.  I noticed that in spotfire 7.9, the drop-down list property no longer has this predictive text jumping capability.  Scrollng through a long list in the drop-down list can be cumbersome for the user.  How do I restore this drop-down list functionality in spotfire 7.9? I have attached a simple sample spotfire 7.9 dxp file to illustrate the issue.  I would think this should be a straightforward adjustment but I could not find an answer while searching this forum and other web resources.  I should mention that I am comfortable with Ironpython scripting and have done a few things with JavaScript in spotfire.  Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
