Description

Currently (V2.6.0 pfsense CE) It is a bit tedious to enter IP adresses with
known netmask.
You have to enter the address in a field and then chose the right mask/prefix length from a drop down window.

It would be a great help if CIDR-Notation of a IP-Address would be accepted from the input field for the address.

Example:

If I enter 192.168.10.1/24 in an IP address field
this:
Address: [192.168.10.1/24] /[ ]
becomes
Address: [192.168.10.1] /[24]

to put it in other words:
The mask-part of the address in CIDR-Notation will be transferred to the drop down menu.

This makes Copy&Paste from other systems much easier.

Interesting idea but I'm not sure how viable it will be, especially on large forms like aliases.

In most OS/browsers it's actually much easier than you describe. Just enter the IP address then <tab> and type the number out and the browser will pick the right number from the drop-down field.

So 192.168.10.0<tab>24<tab>
