Enhance Find to search collapsed code

Update the Find functionality to find the search argument in collapsed code. Currently the LPEX editor says the argument is "not found" if all occurrences of it are in a block of code that has been collapsed.

Ideally update LPEX to pull the line containing the code out of the collapse, creating 2 blocks of collapsed code immediately before and after it. (i.e. replicate the way SEU works when searching for code in excluded lines.)

Use Case:

Collapse a block of code, then search for something within it.

    I'm tempted to vote for this - I used to use an SEU technique of collapsing everything, then searching for something - this would result in showing only the item I was searching for.

    I wonder if this RFE is trying to get the same kind of result might already be in RDi, by selecting something, then right-clicking and select the "Filter" selection.

    To the original submitter, does that technique do anything you want?
