Find in timelines

The Find command allows you to search in the text parts of loaded timelines. The text parts include labels, event notes, and popup text. The events that match the search request are listed in a page that is sent to your web browser. Each line in the list has the label, the name of the category to which the event is attached, the start time and the end time. The label is a link to the event and can be clicked to move the Quotidian display to that event.

Invoking the Find command causes a dialog box to pop up. The dialog has an entry field to enter the text to search for.
