Having created many cross-references, and multiple links to the same cross-reference, I need to find in my document where they are all located. Unfortunately, the search (ctrl-f) command only returns the original cross-reference, and not the cited ones throughout the document. Does anyone know how to search for them?

According to an answer to question 86289 and a comment:

Use Alternative Find & Replace for Writer (AltSearch) and Select:

  1. {Extended → Cross ref. marker (text)} to search for text, marked as referable.
  2. {Extended → Cross-reference (text)} to search for text, that is reference to referable text.
