Finding blocks and text in multiple diagrams

When you choose the Find in Diagrams command, Embed displays a dialog box to specify the block, identifier, or text string you want to find and the directories in which to search for it.

As Embed finds occurrences of the search item, it displays them in the Output Console window.

1.    Choose Edit > Find and Replace > Find in Diagrams (CTRL+SHIFT+F).

2.    In the Find in Diagrams dialog box, do the following:

a.    In the Find What box, enter the search item.

b.    In the Look In box, click the DOWN ARROW and select the search region.

i.  If you want to search in a specific directory, click to select it.

ii. If you choose Current Directory, you have the option of also searching in all subdirectories.
