The latest version of Navigator at:

can easily search all the scripts in a stack, and return a list of  
references to them for further use.

The command is on the contextual menu, and can be used on a stack, a  
card, a group, or any combination of objects. Select Find>In  
Scripts... to search the selected objects, or Find>In Enclosed  
Scripts... to search the selected objects and all the objects they  

So if you want to search a stack and everything in it including  
substacks, use Find>In Enclosed Scripts... on the mainstack.

You can also search by a test, which allows you to do things like  
search for every button that is red, or every 16-pixel tall field  
with no script, etc.
