Find (or Search Collection) for Skratchpad?

Is there a way to perform a find within the notes in Scratchpad? I’d love it if I could set up a Collection that looked for matches only in the Scratchpad notes.

The Scratchpad is not part of any project, and therefore is not visible to a project’s search tools.

On the other hand, it’s visible as a folder in your operating system, via either File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac OS). So you can use the operating system tools to search it.


On the other hand, because it isn’t part of a project, it isn’t automatically backed up, either. We don’t really recommend using it for long term storage, especially of such large quantities of material that it needs to be searched.
