How to find to the tool number(#) ie CTRL-F

Hi,

 

I tried to find the answer in the community and I was about to write a question but found the answer in the meantime. 

Some user could be faced with the same question so best to record the answer here in the community content. 

 

Issue:

How can I find the tool by its tool number (16)?

ie: Error: Input Data (16): File not found ...."

 

It is even worse when there is an error in a macro, the tool number (#) is provided but I'd like to find the # among hundreds of them.

 

Answer:

use CTRL-F to find a tool by its number

On the messages window pane, you can click on the tool (ex. 'Input Data (16)' is actually a hyperlink) which will automatically select the particular node referenced in that message error line.

Thanks Jason for the tip.

 

however, when the error is in a Macro, there is no hyperlink.

So you need to open the macro and find the tool (#).

You can right-click on an empty space on the canvas and select Find tool. A dialog with tool names and ids will pop up.
