Select footprint with keyboard

I have a rather big design and after reading the netlist into the PCB editor all footprints are stacked in a big pile.
From this point, the only way I know to select a component is by clicking on the pile with the mouse and hope it appears in the pop-up menu.

Is there a way to just type component reference using the keyboard to select/move it?

Hit T and write the reference you want.

Ah! Perfect. Thank you!
