Search in strings - how to do

Changes in build 2018 from 2013:
...
- Search&Replace. Ability to search in strings, or in comments.


How to do it? Where is an appropriate option? I only see the possibility
to define the scope (whole project vs. directory) and a file name filter.

Hi,

One could get it with patterns like
"$a$" or // $a$

I kept looking too in the Find functionality. Look instead under menu
Search > Search Structurally
or CtrlShiftS.

Please provide a tutorial at release for that powerful feature.
