In LyX, is it possible to search for a citation I've already inserted by BibTex key? I'm inserting references from a BibTex file using Insert -> Citation.

For example, I would like to find all the locations in the text where I've already added "Smith 2012".

Select Document --> Outline, and in the panel that pops up on the left side choose List of citations from the drop-down menu. You can filter the list to show only some labels.
