Thanks, Joan!  I am not sure if that works on a Mac but that function would be handy.  On a Mac, I can control F to find anything on the collection and series-levels, but anything further nested is a no-go for me, at least, that’s how it seems.

Boy, do I feel dumb. I answered my own question from a couple of days ago. You CAN search within a collection, and it should have been the first thing I tried, but, of course, I didn’t.

Ctrl-F, the old standby, works like a charm. A lovely extra search box appears, and you can type in a search term, and it will tell you how many instances appear within that collection, and hitting enter will take you to each instance. WONDERFUL!!

Just thought I’d share.
