Master Files ditamaps are overflowing the Map Context drop-down

Hi all, We have 40 ditamaps and counting in our project. To enable our writers to adjust cross-references when moving files, I added all the ditamap files to the Master Files list. Unfortunately, now the Context drop-down menu in the DITA Maps Manager is showing the first 20 maps from the DITA Maps ...
