    Summary

     

    A search feature in the Script Workspace that allows for searching for keywords or phrases in the scripts' entire contents: script steps, functions, fields, comments, etc.

     

    Importance

     

    I believe this feature would save developers an enormous amount of time pinpointing areas within a script that need debugging.

     

    Use Cases

     

    • Quickly find, highlight, and cycle through the occurrences of the ExcecuteSQL function in a script.
    • Jump to a section of a script based on a keyword in a comment such as "error occurs here", "needs more work", "verify this", or a modified date.
    • Quickly find, highlight, and cycle through the Set Field script steps.
    • Quickly find, highlight, and cycle through the dreaded <Function Missing> errors in a script.
    • Quickly find, highlight, and cycle through where a particular field and/or table occurrence is being referenced in a script.
