Choosing app for snap areas should allow entering package to find helper apps.

I use Docker Desktop, and I would like to set a snap area for this application, but the Docker Desktop.app is actually a helper app within Docker.app. The current selection dialog for choosing an app does not allow me to enter the package content to find the helper app.

This behavior is different than a Finder window. In a Finder window the context menu includes a choice to "Show Package Contents".

I found a workaround. From within the dialog to select an application use the Finder shortcut to get the Go To Folder prompt (⌘ cmd + ⇧ shift + g) and enter /Applications/.app/Contents and hit enter. Now navigate to and select your desired helper / child app.
