This is intentionally a free text field to support workflows and users that do not use the focus point object.
If we limited this to a drop down of choices of focus points it would break the workflow of many existing users.

The pre-2021 version of Vectorworks handled this with the Focus Instruments menu command, which was bound to the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F shortcut by default (on Windows that is).  In 2021, they changed the dialog to the Focus Lighting Devices menu command, which doesn't use Focus Point objects at all.  As part of my workflow, I lay out all of my focus points before I plot any fixtures, so I've imported the old menu command into the newer copies of VW as Focus Instruments Old.vsm and using it instead.
