Locate movieclip by instance name

Hello!

Is there a way to search for a movieclip by it's instance name?

We have a lot of fla's, created by different animators, and we can see the instance names (compiled inside the code), but when we open the fla, we have to search manually for the movie clip that has that instance name and it's really time-consuming.

Is there a way to locate that object inside Animate, by typing the instance name? Not as a build-in feature (because I know that is not possible), but with JSFL command or any other type of method/plugin/code/anything.

Thank you!
