Find where a material is used in a Plan

Recommended Posts

I have an older Plan that has a material designation that's not in my Library.  I would like to find where this material is called for so I can assign something else and purge the old material from the Plan.

 

How do I find where it's called for?  Please tell me it's possible without going thru every possible object.

Use a high visibility material (neon pink/neon green) to replace and then try to spot it in Perspective Floor Overview (Dollhouse).  Just because I'm not holding my breath for a new feature.

There is no easy way that I know of.  If the material is used on an object, you can do like Jon suggested to try and spot it in a camera view.  If it is being used in one of your defaults, the only way to find it is to look at each of them. 

 

As for getting rid of it, you can always use the "merge" tool in the plan materials dialog.
