Called from the View Menu, the Locate view lists all notes (excluding each note alias) in the document in alphabetical order; adornments and separators are also listed. Each (note) list item has an Outline-view icon to the left of the note title. The note name is drawn note's $Color.
To find a note start typing and the list auto-scrolls to show the current/best match to the string being typed, the latter being shown at the bottom of the window. After a few seconds the typed string disappears and a new one may be typed.
Click any note and then click the Open button to open that note's text window.
Notes in the list can be a target for links - this can save you scrolling or changing level a large outline or map view just to find the target for your link. Using the context menu for a selected list item, other views can be opened and new basic links created (from the selected list item).
Aliases are not listed in this dialog.
