Using find with special characters

I use the Find a lot in AX AOT. There are two not very well known ways of searching:

1. Find special characters

This is not very well known by others but I find very useful is using escape character to find what I want.

For example you want to search for code containing <SYS>. I just type in \<SYS\>.

2. Find AOT property

You can search for property values.

For example, in the AOT, if you search the Workflow node, and enter Module: *#Vendor in the Containing text field, only application objects that have a property named Module where the value is set to Vendor are displayed.

 

You can find a bit more info on msdn.
