Can I search for a detail or worksheet by name?

Robert Nichols

Now that AC helpfully lets me search for layers, surfaces and other attributes by name (very well executed feature by the way. I love that it behaves the same in the Surfaces dialog as well as surface selection pop-up for an element), I want to be able to search for a Detail or Worksheet in a similar way. When a project grows in size, and perhaps someone in the office falls short of naming conventions, or when I create a detail but become distracted by something else before I create a view for it, I find it too easy to lose work that I have done. Would be great to search on "sill" and get a quick list of all details that include "sill" in the name. 

 

Is the functionality there and I'm missing it?

Plain as day! Thanks for pointing that search field out, Laszlo. I wonder what other features I've been looking at but not seeing over the years?
