No, I am not mistaken, it is definitely the text editor MikTeX of which I write – I’ve never used any other.

The facility is most useful when one is nearing the completion of a long document - which is where I am at the moment.

Thinking more laterally, and having regard to your last sentence…  would it take a lot of work on my part to transfer over to TeXworks?

In fact, it may be worth asking: what are the main features that influence making the choice: MikTeX or TeXworks?

Is it possible that it is not MikTeX (qua MikTeX) of which you speak, but rather TeXworks, the topic of the list to which you actually sent your message ?

If it is, then I am pleased to be able to report that TeXworks 0.6.2 does indeed return the number of instances matched.
