Local Find / Search within Canvas

Use case or problem

When canvas grows large, it can be difficult for eyes to directly catch the desired content. It would be great to add a search within the canvas.

Proposed solution

A floating search bar to search the title and content of notes and cards within the canvas. When hit enter, select the note/card, center it to the screen, with the searched word highlighted.

If possible, also make the content of web page searchable. But if it is techinically different, we can also put it into a new FR.

Related feature requests

The discussion in this link also talks about this idea. But since one feature per post, I want to separate the within-canvas search FR from global search FR.


Good idea, I just added “Local” and “Find” into your title for clarity, and so it also shows up if people use the search term “Find”.
