Rate calculator country selection improvement
When using the rate calculator, the process of selecting a destination country is awkward, especially compared to the country selector in the "manual order entry" window.Let's say I'm shipping to Thailand...In the manual order entry window:- click or tab over to the country box- start typing "Th" and instantly, the text autocompletes to "Thailand"...no hunting requiredIn the rate calculator:- click on the current country- must use mouse to scroll through the entire list and then click on the country...This may seem like a little thing, but I'm way slower slogging around with my mouse than using my keyboard.Seems like all you need to do is change the clickable country text into a regular popdown list exactly like the one in the order screen...it works perfectly. Frankly, the current interface is rather non-standard UI (pop-down appears below the ZIP code box, which is unrelated to the country list).
The country drop down in the new version of ShipStation supports type ahead to select! Most users have access to the new version.

This simple user interface fix would vastly improve the usability of the Rate Calculator. Please update it!
And while you're at it, the click area for the Reset button is huge. Makes accidentally clicking it very easy. Should be another simple UI fix.

I would also like to be able to set a default country for this field in the rate calculator as well.
