Searchable Captions in Project Window?

Is there a way to search for captions outside the text box? Especially in the case of the project window and the timeline? Say I have an interview that spans three clips, and I know something was touched upon in one of them but not sure which one. How would I go about searching? One by one? Or am I missing something? I don't want to pay for Transcriptive, no offense to DA.

I assume you are in PR 2021 where there is now a search function in the Text Panel. I see no way to search any more than that caption stream/track.That would be VERY useful.

 

Feature request:

If you make a feature request, post the link here so it can be upvoted.

 

A possible, not very satisfactory, workaround would be to export text files and/or srt from the Text Panel, then combine and search there. An alternative would be a workflow where you create a single sequence/caption track with the whole content.

Cautiously: Is cramming a minified string of the content of the captions into a metadata field in the source clip (multiclip) a bad idea for performance?

I have never used captions but if you can save them to bins you would be able to do limited searhing  as seen in the video below. That being said a feature request would be best.
