Viewport Search is a very simple to use blender addon that allows you to search for objects in the scene directly from the viewport. So you don't need to go to the outliner everytime you want to find an object thats hidden behind several other objects.


Once you install the addon you are all set to go.

Press Ctrl+F (Which can be changed from the Addon preferences) to bring up the search panel and type the name of the object you are looking for. It will be automatically selected and focused. The addon will also expand the outliner to show the object (This behavior can be turned off in the preferences)

Note: This addon is also part of my Saved Views Blender addon but i thought this would also be useful on its own for people who don't own that addon.
