Sometimes it's quicker to select nodes by matching on their names.
To select nodes by matching on their names:
A Select by Name dialog appears.
The search string can contain wildcard characters: `?' will match any single character, and `*' will match a sequence of zero or more characters.
Toggle on this item if you want to search for nodes in the whole graph model, or toggle off this item to search only in the active window.
Nodes with names matching the search string are selected.
A series of searches is possible; if you hold down the shift key while clicking Select, the matching nodes are added to the current selection (rather than replacing it).
