    Lightbulb The star menu: It hurts! it's cumbersome, too difficult to use; Text search filter?!

    Eugh, my star menu is becoming a pain point in the game and those few tabs just don't filter things down enough.

    Items don't stack into anything more than 25 and loads of items remain as singles making scrolling to find something very cumbersome.
    (I have seen stack combining suggested but it seems it might be complex to implement since it involves changing the item stack data)

    I can't see that this hasn't been suggested yet so here are some more words to explain:

    Once opening the star menu, I would like to see a text search box where i can type a few letters or a word to filter the list in star down to items with those letters. No need to fumble around with scrolling through the vast number of items.

    It should be simple enough to implement since it is limited to the user interface and it would work in a very similar way to how the Trade window already works when searching for items to buy/sell by text.

    I hope to see something like this soon, and/or any other usability fix for managing lots of items in the star menu

    Adventure Search ability.

    I think it might be a good idea to be able to search on a specific name of an adventure in Star Menu--> Misc. Looking through them all everytime i need to find a perticular adventure can be rather tiresome. and I bet there are players out there who have more adventures in their starmenu then i do.

    Sincerely
