When inserting a template with the visual editor, search should find templates whose names match the substring
Open, LowPublic8 Story Points

Description

I have often this problem using VE:

  1. I type {{
  2. I start typing the template name: "refnec"

By the time VE understood that I'm asking to insert a template, the field has only got "fnec".

Search for templates that contain "fnec" would help.
I can also be useful when you don't recall a template name, or for beginners, to get the template they want (insert an infobox about an artist without knowing that you must start your search by "infobox").

Please file three different tasks for three different bugs.

Can you clarify? I only have one request: have a way to search for a template by having only a part of its name.

I'll take the second bug you reported, and ignore the other two, then. ;-)
