Orient to 3D View/Paste aligned to view - Scroll Bar/Quick Search Filter/Sorting

Orient to 3D View/Paste aligned to view - Scroll Bar/Quick Search Filter/Sorting

A lot of time is wasted scrolling to find views/levels for different features. This applies to 3D view orientation, paste to views etc. I propose a typable filter box to quickly find the item you're looking for, or adding in a sorting parameter (such as by discipline/subdiscp. etc.) to find the views faster

 

Example 1:

We required sorting of views when using "Orient to View" in a 3D view. The list of views is too long without sorting. See screenshot below (1000s of views for a complex hotel). There is no scrolling functionality, meaning we have to click the down arrow and move through all views, which can take minutes and is very inefficient.

Example 2:

We also require sorting of pasting elements "aligned to level/view". The list of views is too long without sorting. See screenshot below (1000s of views for a complex hotel). Here there is scrolling functionality which allows faster find.

I DETEST that "hold your mouse over the down arrow" interface

PS: Currently our workflow is rename the view we desire to orient to with a few 0's in front (shifts to top), then rename again. Not the greatest, but it works.
