There are a couple ways: (probably more)

1. You could look at the flattened hierarchy in the Navigator panel, and
click on the first item in the Instance list. Then start typing the
designator and it will go to it in the list. Click on it once, and it will
jump the schematic to that part.

2. In the list panel, you can type something like this:
(ObjectKind = 'Designator') And (StringText = 'RN502B')   
I would save that as a favorite, then just substitute the RefDes as needed.

Tony
