Search for code in expressions? Find and replace?
I have comps with 30-50 layers - many of them shape layers, with expressions on the shape attributes throughout the entire comp. The shapes are controlled by control sliders on a control layer (sliders, point controls, etc), and the controls have expressions as well. I use consistent variable names across all these layers/expressions. Rigging up something complicated in AE gets out of control pretty fast as there's lots of code duplication because all expressions are limited to local scope of the layer property they reside on. That's a whole separate can 'o worms and I'm not trying to open that can right now. ;-) ...but what I'd like to do though, is be able to search for code across the entire comp and find the layer/property where the code resides. In the search field at top of comp, if I type in "someVariableName" I'd like the search field to have the option to search code and solo layers/properties where the matching string is in an expression. Further, if I could Find some code, say, a variable name, then it would be great if I could also do a Replace on it to rename a variable or something other bit of re-used code across several layers. Thanks!
Expression content is already searchable/filterable in the timeline search bar. Find and replace is a great request, though!
