Open up the search dialog with the shortcut
[Ctrl+F] or the menu item
Search > Search. You will be prompted with the following window:
The checked items will be searched for the search text provided. The options shown are enough for most users. Press
[More] on the left-bottom to check more items. The Studio remembers your last fifty search terms.
If you press
[Search] the results will be shown:
Use the contextual mouse click to (de-)select all the checkboxes. Clicking on a search result takes you to its location in the model. Double-clicking on a search result will directly open the item.
Searching multiple models and libaries
By default, the Studio will search inside the opened model. It is also possible to scan entire folders: Tick the box
[Search folder] to provide a path to a folder. The Studio will search through all the models it can find in that folder, including any folder inside (recursively). If you select
[Search library] the Studio will do the same for the Central library folder (see libraries). When searching through different models, the results will include a reference to the model. Now clicking on a result opens the model and navigates to the respective item.
Under the ‘Replace’ tab (also available with the shortcut
[Ctrl+H]), you can edit text on the screen, yellow notes, hints and text fragments in one sweeping go. If you press
[More] then the URL’s in links and SQL filters can be replaced too.
[Replace], you will be prompted for your confirmation. You can either confirm or cancel out of each instance individually, or you can say
[No to All] or
[Yes to All].
Searching and replacing in the source code panel
With the source code panel focused, instead of the dialog above, you will get search and replace dialogs optimized for the plain text that is the source code. The shortcut
[F3] is bound to search the same term again.
