When assigning net class membership via the Net Classes Editor in the Design Rules Editor (Setup --> Design Rules... --> Net Classes Editor tab --> assign Net Class Membership at the bottom) it would be really nice to have a fuzzy search box (like the way file search works in Sublime Text) which allows you to quickly search and filter Nets by their name so that you can easily assign them to a class.

Be sure to add the fuzzy search box to both the left and right sides. See screenshot for what it currently looks like.

I don't know how fuzzy it is, but 5.1 has a net filter box.
