Search for block _________ (54-0, all support!)

EXPLANATION

So, I am trying to make a remix of one of DadofMrLog's projects, and the scripts aren't organized. (I don't blame him, there are a ton). Anyways, I think there should be an option to search a project for a certain block. There are some times when I'm looking at projects that I'm not sure I trust, when I see the message telling me that the “username” block is used in the project. I have to go into the project and look through all the scripts to find it.

HOW THIS SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED (In my opinion)

There should be a button by the “Share” and “See Project Page” buttons that says “Search Project For A Block”. When this button is clicked, a side panel, not unlike the one containing help, should appear, and you should be able to search. You would search just like you search for blocks in the scratchblocks option on the forums. When you are done, you press “Enter”, and a number of buttons appear on the panel, each with a number. For instance, If there were four “If < > Then” blocks in the project, the buttons would look like this:
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
When each button was clicked, your view in the editor would be positioned so that the corresponding block was placed in the center of your screen.

SPECIAL BITS THAT I DIDN'T MENTION BEFORE

You would be able to input numbers, strings, booleans, variables, lists, drop-down answers, and anything else that goes inside a block input before pressing “enter”. The following was suggested by Zappy1333: Shortcut: Ctrl + F


DadofMrLog has created something a bit like this: go here.

I've actually been thinking about suggesting a similar thing, but this is as good or better than my idea. SUPPORT!!

Definite support. It can be very annoying searching through large projects.
ctr-f could be the shortcut, to make it more easily accessible.

ST should get the top ten users from Advanced Topics to code Scratch 3 instead of the project they created.

I could certainly use a feature like this. I wonder how you could tell it that you wanted to find all “When I Receive” blocks versus a specific “When I Receive a specific broadcast”? Maybe there would be an “Any” option on the dropdown lists. Would you need the capability to search within a single sprite as well as across all sprites?

However don't assume that because I like it that it is going to happen any time soon. I'm just one person on the team. And there are many competing needs for the team resources, including tablet versions of Scratch, bug fixes, community features for the website, etc.

Ok. I was just wondering if the ST could possibly put it on their quite certainly mile long to-do list. Thanks!
