Drop Down Box Sizing

Is there any way to set an option that will increase the number of items displayed in a drop-down box.  I've got plenty of screen real-estate to burn, and a really long list of potential assignees.

You mean number of items displayed in a drop down box without getting a scroll bar? As far as I know, that's completely up to your browser.

Just in case you don't already know, in Windows you can click on the scroll bar and type, for example, "n" to jump down to the first item beginning with n.

Yep, that's what I meant.  And it's too bad that such a simple setting isn't adjustable with an attribute in the tag.

And yeah, I knew I could do that, but going back and forth between mouse and keyboard is always so awkward.  :)

Thanks for the answer.

I agree, and I agree.
