Search is rather a filter

In my opinion current "search" option in Events tab is rather "Filter" than search.

After "Searching" it filters all events and shows only that I was looking for. Thats inconvenient when I want to find whole piece of code that consists specific variable/object/action etc.
I have to:
1. Filter ("Search") to the variable/object/action I'm looking for,
2. memorize line number,
3. turn of filter ("Clear search"),
4. scroll to that line of code.

Would it be possible to:
1. change confusing name of filter function?
2. add real search?

I agree, it's actually a bit useless since you may have the reference you searched in multiple event sheets, which becomes a fricken nightmare when debugging.

It would be nice if it had a nice search view with every line it appears, in every event sheet, and any objects that might "relate" to the search term.

I've posted about this before. I even think I put in a feature request. It would be nice to at least be able to go to a highlighted event (after you close the search) without having to scroll and look for it.
