      Print into pdf, copy text from pdf into text editor with Filemaker language plugin, search, find, try to locate a marker which you can remember, go back to Filemaker, search the same text passage and get angry because you spend so much to use a function that nearly any other available on planet earth app has.

          I understand your frustration, but when I open the scripts workspace, I only see search boxes for searching script titles and the list of script steps from which you can select a step for the script. I don't see one for searching things within the script that I am creating.

          There are other options than printing to PDF as a way to search for text within the script--I frequently use BaseElements myself, but would dearly love not only a search capability but a find/replace capability like you can use in most true text editors.
