By "included files" do you mean text insets?

If so .. I don't believe that a search will find anything in an inset (certainly would be nice). Once way you can do that is to create a special book that you use for authoring, which is different than the one you use to create PDFs from. Add your insets to this "authoring" book, then you can do a search across the book, and it'll find content in the insets.

Hmm .. it would be fairly simple to create an ExtendScript that temporarily "unlocked" all insets in a document. You could do the unlock, search, then lock it once you've located the inset. You'd want to be careful, but it should work.

My question was ignored many times during the webinar. Do the search enhancements include finding matches in included files? Currently, the only way I can search for strings in my books that single-source included files is to generate a PDF and search in it.
