This function opens a contextual menu which can be a little messy when the class hierarchy is huge (> 100 derived classes).

First, the mouse wheel doesn't work to scroll in the list. We need to press the top/bottom arrows on the list to navigate which is super slow.

In case where we have several levels of inheritance (child classes, grandchild classes, etc...) I think the most useful information is not easily visible: what are the direct children of the class.

Consider a class hierarchy like this:
- Base
  - A
    - A1
    - ...
    - A1000
  - B
  - C

Starting from Base class, I want to see all direct children (A, B, C) but the Derived class contextual menu is full of A1..A1000 entries.

As for the feature request: can you add a new entry "Direct Derived Classes" in the Goto Related menu, which list only the direct classes of a given class?

The problem is that the Goto Related menu just isn't designed to handle this many entries. We are considering adding a dedicated class hierarchy view which would handle this sort of scale much better:
