Description

As project manager or product owner responsible for several projects/products (redmine project) it is very important to change issue-project mapping if the existing mapping is wrong.

Since, the amount of redmine projects increases, the change of an issue's project isn't easy. The drop down of the project field shows a long list of all projects (more than 300 projects).

It would be very helpful and time-saving, if the drop down field for project within an issue would be searchable:
  • Opening the drop down of the project field would open the list of all projects + a search field
  • Typing 3 or more letters within the search field, the list of projects is reduced to the match.

Totally agree, something similar to #23310 to jump between projects would be very helpful.
Same problem happens when editing project's properties and try to change the project's parent in Subproject of, if you are an admin the drop down could be immense.

In my opinion, the focus should be on the field project within the issue because the user group affected by this kind feature/optimization is bigger than the user group of the administrators. Nevertheless, a solution for all project drop downs would be nice.

+1 to this, we'd also very much appreciate this feature. Agree that the dropdown when editing an issue is the most important place to change.
