Nav menu & new editor link dialog: ambigous page selection

Description

Hello,

When having a lot of pages, it often happens that some pages have the same name.

For example I have a product and a documentation section, both have a page called "My Product". If I want to add one of those to a nav menu OR to make a link in a post to one of those, there is no way to distinguish between those.

The solution would be to show the parent like this:

My product
parent: Documentaiton

My product
parent: Products

Best regards

If you think it is a duplicated of #13499, please change the title of it to reflect the fact that the internal linking dialog is also concerned by the issue.

When we figure out a proper UX/UI, we'll do it in both places, rest assured.

Internal linking, however, is less of an issue, as you see immediate feedback via the URL when you click a row.

Only if permalinks are used ..
