I have many categories in my WordPress website. Each time I am adding new post it is very hard to find specific category that I need this time.

It would be much easier if I had search field right above list of categories (Categories Metabox) when I am editing post. How can I do it? Or maybe there is some plugin for it?

enter image description here

For example search button can be added after "Most used" tab.
