    When creating an assignment and assigning it to one section, it would be helpful if the auto-populate list showed more sections. Currently, it only displays 2 or 3 sections out of the 9 sections in the course, with a prompt that says, "Continue typing to find additional sections or students." This behavior was not occurring in the past and seems like a recent change. This causes 2 difficulties: 1) Teachers/TAs might assume that sections not on the list are missing or deleted. 2) Typing out the specific section requires the teacher to remember the exact names of all sections in the course, which can be tedious when the naming conventions are a mixture of numbers, decimals, underscores and hyphens. For example, if I want to assign an assignment to section OB600M.23_8.14-9.24, and I type 'OB600M.23_', only the first 3 sections display, none of which are the desired section.
