Justification
Crafting is already a tedious process (but we love it!) without needing to delete valuable schematics just to access others in a factory list by keeping our schems below 50.
Motivation
Despite keeping my schematics organized, I still have more than 50 for one factory type. The truncated list of available schematics prevents the ability to insert the one you may wish to craft as it's cut off. This means I either need to start deleting schematics that I still need, or go buy a data droid to bypass this list. Either way it doesn't seem to make sense. If we have 250 data slots available, we should be able to see any and all schematics in a factory list.
Proposal
Factories are limited to 50 schematics from which to choose despite our datapads having 250 available slots. If one has more than 50 schematics for one type of factory, the list of schematics to choose from gets cut off. With no ability to sort or filter, newest schematics aren't available to be selected. Some crafters are using data droids to circumvent the issue, but in the interest of efficiency it would be better to be able to simply access all available schematics to insert into a factory.
Not sure if this is a bug or working as intended. Putting it here for feedback.

I agree this is a pain. I'm not sure if it was always this way or not. It took a few months for me to notice it.

I'm not sure, either. I only noticed it recently when I split some of my component schematics up.

yes, agree also, especially when you are making multiple schems with slight resource differences

Oh my yes please - not to mention sorting. I see no gameplay downsides to this idea at all, nothing to be balanced or considered.

Bumping this. Now that all schematics for chef utilize the food factory, this is an even bigger problem.
