In the LyX editor, how can I search for a cross-reference for a certain figure, e.g., search for all places where I reference fig:abc?

My current workaround is to delete the reference. Then, when I open the references table, I see it as "BROKEN: fig:abc" and can go to them one by one. This is quite inconvenient. Is there a better way?

    By references table, do you mean View --> Outline pane, then select Labels and references? All cross references are listed there also before you delete the figure. – Torbjørn T. Jun 6 '15 at 21:12

Select View --> Outline pane, and then select Labels and references from the drop down in that pane. That will give you a list of all labels, and each label can be expanded by clicking the small arrow next to it, to show a list of all references to that label.
