      Description

      We have tried to cut back on the number of properties in VIVO, but this results in picklists often having members of multiple classes.

      It would be very helpful if not only the label but also the most specific type information could be visible on pick lists – perhaps in parentheses after the label. This would help to differentiate items on the list.

      An alternative might be to allow filtering of the pick list by type, but ideally as a reversible action so that users who don't know the type of a known entity don't have to try filtering by multiple types in successiong to find it.
