Prevent global epic links when creating issues

When I create a new issue, I set it to belong to certain project. Under the "epic link" I am presented with a list of all epics across all projects. Can I restrict this list to only contain epics for this project only?

For abbrevity and simple communication we use short and descriptive epic names. But their names are only valid within the scope of the project, i.e. they don't contain the name of the project. So when a user is presented with a list of all epics with these short, the list becomes very difficult to use.

I too would like the option to limit epics in epic link list to only epics of selected project when creating an issue.

The question linked above is not the same case. My question is how to limit the list of selected project only epics when creating issues, not while using Agile boards.
