Hi,
as an unexperienced hobby programmer I often have to seach in scripts and 
doesn´t really know where in the stack(s).

Using HC there was a basic command called searchscript - worked perfect

Then using MC I modified the HC thing and it worked pretty.

At first trial my modification didn´t work in Rev so I tried to use the 
built in searchdialog.

By default it searches in name, script and text - DONT DO THAT - if you have 
a big stack it will last for hours!!!!!

Only checking "script" works satisfactory and it lists the searchresults 
although it lists repetitions and therefore the list could get long...

But then you have to go to each founditem manually by opening the 
application browser and so on.

Is that called comfortable programming????

Regards,
            Ernst
