I am using Dropdown Field with the 'Multiselect' and 'Autocomplete' option activated, but when entering the first character for example "p" the Dropdown Field does not show the terms that start with the letter "p", it only highlights the letters "p" on the information already displayed.
How can I make it so that when entering a character it shows me the nearest term in the list of options in Dropdown Field?

This is how the Chosen autocomplete library works. You can't change this behavior. When you enter a character, it searches the list for that character. To find words, enter enough letters for the search algorithm to find them.
