Topic category: Feature requests and ideas for MCreator
This is a feature request for the software itself.
My suggestion is to add a search function for recipes in mod elements (for example "Advancements" > "Reward recipes"). The more recipes and the more mod elements you have, the more time-consuming it is to find the desired recipe and add it to the mod element, especially if you are looking for older recipes. A search function would make the whole thing much easier. At the moment there is only a pop-up window in which you have to scroll until you find it.
For this type of suggestion, I only found "related" topics that are up to 4-5 years old and have not yet been implemented.
