Make dropdown Style Classes / Icons faster and remember last chosen option
Frontend (App Interfaces)
Development Environment Release 30

The dropdown list of the Style Classes and Icons are pretty slow and more people are experiencing it. I think this is because of the fact that the whole list is loaded at once.

Second of all is that when you have selected a Style Class or Icon and it turns out that it is not suiting you, you want to select a better one. But the list won't start on your selected option, but on the top of the list. Again this is pretty annoying when the list is loading pretty slow and you have to scroll down again.

Hi Martijin,

Thanks a lot for your ideas. Based on your (and other users') feedback we've made 2 recent changes that I believe help:

1 - Icon picker (or any static entity identifier picker) will show an interface on double-click which is fast and easy to browse and search:

2 - In Style Classes we now limit the list while you are typing, making searches a lot faster (and search anywhere on the class name and allow multiple classes):
