THe manual method for searching is to press CMD-Shift-F / Ctrl-Shift-F
inside a text (searchign for selection) or outside. A code search window
will pop up. The search will find what's loaded into the Lively runtime
(classes, modules, methods, objects). By pressing the "search on server"
checkbox you are switching to a completing string search that covers all
code that the server has access to.
