Filter/Search for Parent Class Selection

Status: New

On bigger projects, when creating a new class, I find it time-consuming to track down the parent class I'd like to inherit from.


It'd save me some pain if there was some kind of filter and/or search option for this on the New Class GUI:



Other thoughts on this:

- While the tree structure is useful, I usually know the name of the parent class I want to inherit from, but I don't necessarily know the full inheritance of it, meaning the tree structure isn't the most efficient way to find it.  (Even alphabetical by class name would be faster in these cases).

- I'd find the tree structure here easier to follow if the lines were visible.
