This has got to be one of the coolest new features in Flash MX2004: Global Search and Replace. Go to Edit, and select “Find…” and you will be shown the new search and replace panel. You can search for virtually any type of asset in your entire FLA: Text (script and/or text content), Images, Sounds, Fonts, etc.
While it still seems a little buggy, and it’s a shame it has no undo capability, or the ability to search on an entire project, it sure will save me a lot of time. I don’t know how much of my short life I’ve wasted hunting in vain for the final occurence of a font in a FLA, trying to eliminate the extra 20kb added to the SWF because I’m using both bold Arial and Arial Bold.
