How do you search for comments?

Adepters:

One of my users wants to search for comments. I can't see how you can do that. The user just wants to find each comment without concern for their content.

Thanks,
Dave

Find-->Tag/Attribute

_comment

If you do a Find/Replace and put "_comment" in the Find Within box, it
will restrict to just comment nodes.

Oh, I guess I misread that... but find Tag/Entity with "_comment" as
the tagname will also work.

Or //comment() as an XPath if you prefer.

Thanks, Andy. Now I remember that "trick".

That is a neat trick. 🙂 I tried and found that it also works inside the Find Within: field of the Find/Replace box. I'm always making notes in comments so the ability to find obscure ones is handy. So thanks Andy!
