22.214.171.124. Finding nodes
Find nodes by alias
Choose "Find by alias" from the toolbar menu to search a node with a given alias name. Proceed as follows:
- Choose the "Find by Alias" menu item from the toolbar menu (see Section 2.3.7, “Toolbar”). This opens the "Find Nodes" dialog (see screenshot below).
- Enter the alias name into the input field of the dialog and click the "Search" button. You can also enter only the first characters of an alias name and then use the * character as a placeholder for the remaining characters. For example, if you enter the search term "intro*", then this will find all nodes that have an alias name starting with "intro" (see screenshot below).
- The result of the search will be shown in the list below the input field. Double-click a node within the list to show the content of the node in the preview area of the workspace.
