Sorry, I'm at my VT520 now so can't try it, but I think in the menu's
there's a search dialog with check boxes as opposed to just the search
bar in thumbnails.  If so, you can add that to the toolbar.

Worst case, you can go back to page one (there's a button to do this)
and run search then.  I think that by default, it starts the search from
the currently displayed page.
