In order to use this feature you will need:

Search for metadata

To search for a node simply select the search bar in the top toolbar in the Org model.

Choose the type of metadata from the supported types to narrow down the search and get results faster.

Start typing letters from the label or API name of the component you seek.

By default, all search is done using "Starts with" query. So if you type in "Account", we will bring back metadata components which have names starting with "Account" but not if they have that word later in their name.

You can still perform "Contains" query if you prefix the string you are searching for with "*", e.g. "*Account"

Within seconds the system will bring back a list of candidates that you can scroll through. Clicking on a search result will load the required component.
