When choosing a material for a brush, border or anything that takes a material or texture. If the drop down is about in the center of the screen, it brings up the dialogue box on Mouse Button Down, then on Mouse button release, its now hovering over one of the Create New Asset options, and brings up the new asset dialogue box, throwing you out of choosing the material.

It seems that if the material drop down is up high, the material selection dialogue appears below, and above if the drop down is low on the screen. But 90% of the time my drop down is right in the middle, and I end up getting the Create New Asset menu! Its extremely frustrating. Is there a way to force the selection menu up high on the screen? or prevent it from being automatically overtop the create new asset options?
