Is your feature request related to a problem or area of OpenRefine? Please describe.
I'm always frustrated when I need to move the mouse to the input field I'm using most often in a dialog. E.g. the separatorInput field in Join... or Split multi-valued cells. It would be easier if OpenRefine autofocussed the cursor onto that field, and others where similar user preference is expected.

Describe the solution you'd like

Apply att_input_autofocus to those fields. If you agree, I'll be happy to send a PR.

Describe alternatives you've considered
none, TBH

Additional context
Do you have numbers on which for example the popularity of the by field lengths split option?

Given that OpenRefine runs locally we don't have any way to collect usage statistics (we could add calls to some hosted service for that, but I think it would be contentious). But your proposal definitely makes sense, we can use our own experience and common sense to determine which fields should be focused by default.
