Do you realize you're responding to a discussion from 2015? A lot has changed since then.
Why don't you start a new discussion and tell us which version of DW you have. Which operating system? And also please explain more about what you're trying to search for.
Effective with DW CC 2017.1 - Improved Find & Replace
You can now search for attributes and tags using the Find and Replace dialog box (Find > Find and Replace in Files). You can use this dialog even if no files are open in Dreamweaver (searching within a folder, for instance).
In addition, the Find and Replace Quick Find bar (Find > Find and Replace) is now moved to the bottom of the Dreamweaver workspace. Use this panel to quickly find and replace text and attributes within the current document.
For more information on find and replace, see Find and replace text, tags, and attributes.
New keyboard shortcuts for find and replace:
- Find in Current Document: Ctrl + F (on Windows), and Cmd + F (on Mac)
- Find and Replace in Files: Ctrl + Shift + F (on Windows), and Cmd + Shift + F (on Mac)
- Replace in Current Document: Ctrl + H (on Windows), and Cmd + Alt + F (on Mac)
