Short description of error
I'm trying to remap some of my materials, but the menu that opens to allow me to choose the replacement material doesn't allow me to see all the materials available--there is no way to scroll down to see more of the list. I tried on the daily build for 12/19, and unlike the stable version, there are arrows, but they also don't open the full menu.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Go to outliner>blender file>materials, right click on a material, choose remap, Outliner ID data remap opens, click on New ID to open that menu, and that's where I can't see all of the choices. I'm attaching a screenshot, because it only happens with a larger file with many materials.

In the screenshot, the last material I can access is labelled M_Photo, and can't scroll to any beyond that.

This should use an ID search drop-down, although it's more a paper-cut than a bug.

Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to Low.

Note, looked into this.

Suggest to solve this in a generic way, where any enum can be flagged as searchable, so we don't need to keep making custom UI's for each case.
