Object Search in Project Bar

Please, make it possible to search for a specific object in the project bar. I know some people say that you should just "type" the object name but it usually fails. ¿Maybe a search bar? I'm having a lot of trouble with a project of mine that has over 500 objects.

    When does typing a name fail exactly? If that's not working then we could fix it, and then you might not need this feature. Please file a bug report if you have issues with it.

    I don't mean to speak for the original poster, but what I'd love to have is to be able to type something in the project bar and either an autocomplete list or a filter of all the objects that updates. For example when typing "Hero" it would display "Hero_Overworld" sprite, and "Hero_Portrait" sprite and "Hero_Events" events sheet. As is now, I have to remember what I titled everything exactly (Or admittedly have a really good naming system).

    This is also related to It's the same idea of realizing I need to alter something somewhere else and just typing the 'concept' of what I need to alter and seeing the list of files associated with it (by title).

    Another way that this or would help is when searching for "project file" types. I use a lot of arrays and it goes to the actual array object but not the project file that will turn into the array object.
