Works OK on Windows (Lazarus 1.7 r52754 FPC 3.0.0 i386-win32-win32/win64).
Maybe widgetset related?

Could very well be,... however when I go to: Tools -> Options -> Key Mappings, the filter box (on the right) works just fine.

Now, funny thing happens;
When opening Tools -> Options, I cannot type in the filter box.
However, when I paste text in it, then suddenly it works and I can type. Until I close the window and open it up again, then it doesn't work again.

Just updated to SVN 53744, OSX 10.12), and the filter is still not responding to keystrokes.
I can select the filter, the "(filter)" text disappears, but I cannot type anything ...

(see also the screenshot I've uploaded)

AlexeyT; since you mention the object inspector checkbox issue to be fixed: which version are you using? I'd be happy to test ...

Does this work with LCL-Cocoa?

The control is a standard TTreeFilterEdit from LazControls. I wonder why it does not work with Carbon. Does it work when you put it into your own application?

Yes it works in Cocoa just fine.
As far as I'm concerned, since Carbon is no longer used by Apple (correct me if I'm wrong), we can close this ticket (I can't close it).
I no longer use Carbon and can't run 32bit apps anymore (running Catalina which will not run 32bit).

On that note, and maybe this should be a separate bug report (?), the "Tools" - "Options" menu on Mac has been moved to "Lazarus" - "Preferences".
Maybe a good idea to keep it under "Tools" - "Options" as well, since pretty much any description related to Lazarus uses that, so a user may keep searching for it and can't find it ... since now it's in a different menu and called "Preferences". (I'm used to Tools-Options as well, so every single time I look in theqwrong spot)

Ok, resolving as "won't fix".
Ask questions about "Lazarus" - "Preferences" menu item in forum or mailing list. I believe there was a reason for moving it but I don't know details. No Mac here.
