newbie question regarding combo box input


I've been using Filemaker for all of 6 hours now and am creating my first database. I've downloaded a few samples and got the basics of my database the way I want it - basically I want to create a database of items and be able to tag them with labels. 

My question is - I found a sample database that does what I want (attached here but the issue is that I can foresee myself using a lot of labels/keywords in the future. And while the listbox used in the sample is great if you only have a few labels - if you have a few hundred like I'm planning to have, it becomes a real effort to scroll to the keyword I need in the list to attach it. 

So my question is - is there any way to improve the combo box so that I can get to the keyword I need quicker? I'm thinking like a dropdown + autocomplete or even being able to jump to the letter I need would make things better.

Thank you so much for your help!
