Summary0004065: Alternate input methods for reference fields
DescriptionReference fields allow input via tree-list selection. This may be cumbersome for some sites, especially relationship-heavy catalogue structures.

Via field-options, provide the option to instead allow input via a <select> (with select2 support so you can type and have it auto-complete by substring).

A <select> is not so appropriate if there are hundreds of entries, but the cut-off point for when one is better than the other is unclear, and it's far better for a webmaster to make that call than us - hence a field option.
Additional InformationAlso consider the same for content-link fields.
