Could you improve search ?

0 votes

yEd is a truly great software but I really suffer from ineffective search function.

Use case:
I have more than 100 nodes, and would like to find some text within the nodes.
It seems that currently there is no way to e.g. search for the second word in the nodes.

Best regards,

Use "Tools" -> "Select Elements". On tab "Nodes", choose "Use These Criteria", value "Label for option "Select", value "Infix Match" for option "Match Type", and enter the word you are looking for as value in the "Label" field. Optionally, choose "Case Sensitive". (This last option is available as of yEd 3.12.)

The same options are available for "Edit" -> "Find".
