[fpc-pascal] How to find a graphic element in the form editor?

When I want to add a graphic element like TFileNameEdit which I have already
used in other programs in the form editor I don't know how to find it in the menu.
I am clicking on each tab one after the other then hovering over each element
to see whether it is what I am searching for.
This is more than awkward and maybe I am overlooking something.
But if that's the only way to find graphic elements it needs improvement I think.
I know the name of the element I want to use (I can look in the code) but the
icons don't tell me anything and many look very similar.
A sorted list of all names would be much better to have.
Or does this already exist?
