I have a bunch of words moving into a shape - some go horizontal and some go vertical. There are so many layers which I named all in Illustrator, but I can't figure out how to search for a layer by name.
I type the word which is the name of the layer in the timeline's searchbox, and it isn't finding it.
Is there something I'm not understanding - seems like it should be a no-brainer.

every once in awhile it will work but most of the time it doesn't. Glitchy i guess

Try typing the name of a layer you can actually see to make sure your search feature is working.
