  1. Display the Instances tab.

  2. Select the class that contains the instance in the Class Browser.

  3. In the Instance Search Bar at the bottom of the Instance Browser, type the beginning of the display slot text for the instance. (The display slot is the slot used to list the instances in the Instance Browser.) Comparison is case-insensitive.

  5. If there is only one match, the selection in the Instance Browser will move to the instance which contains the entered text. If there is more than one match, a dialog will be displayed asking you to choose the instance you want. Select an instance and click OK.

If you are unable to find the instance you are looking for, it may be in a different class. You can use the lookup bar at the bottom of the Class Browser to look for classes.
