Related Choices selections
Currently there are three types of choice selections for related records:

Simple Choices
Dropdown with 'Browse Choices' option
Type-in with 'Search' button

Both "Dropdown with 'Browse Choices' option" and "Type-in with 'Search' button" allow for creating new.
It would be handy to have Simple Choices gain this ability as well - Some times the list of choices is small and neater with the simple choices but creating a new one on the fly is made more difficult... Generally, New Tab --> Create new record --> go back to original record --> Refresh or Reload...

Yes, indeed, this would help .

I really need this function implemented please. The usability from Browse or Search is either not intuitive (for Search esp.) or an extra step that is unnecessary.

Brett, I had a similar problem when using checkboxes as the record picker for a multi-ref. As a workaround I created a formula-URL column with the formula

URLRoot() & "/edit.aspx?t=" & "320568" & "&back=" & BackURL()

where 320568 is the table Id of the table in which I want to create a new record. Obviously you will need to put your own Table ID in there. I then presented this as a button beside or below the checkboxes (in your case the simple choices dropdown). Not perfect, but better than what you are describing.

Thanks for this Philipp. I'll give it a shot

Albeit that I proposed a workaround to Brett, it would still be great if you could do what Brett was originally asking for.
