Let me apologize for my uncomplete reply.
CTR+F searches only for caption and names of tables, relationships, views and materialized views on the workspace.
You can use some search strings, e.g. * - for unlimited number of characters (*role), ? - for one character.
In any case, we will work on improving this search function. (CR 65 855)
Tip - You can use also the Object Viewer feature.
- Right-click the model name and select Object Viewer.
- Type the searched name to the box Object Name, e.g. *role.
- From the Object Type combo-box, select e.g. Attributes (or you can leave All Objects).
- Click the green arrow at the top of the dialog.
Result: All attributes that match the definition will be listed. Double-click the attribute name opens its Properties dialog.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to select/highlight the entity with the attribute on the Workspace. The workaround is that in Object Viewer you learn the name of the entity where the attribute occurs and then use CTRL+F or double-click the shortcut of the entity in Model Explorer. Then the entity will be highlighted on the Workspace.
If you have any questions, please write me back. Thanks.
