I always use "Find All Instances" for searching where a subvi / control is used.
When looking into code that is locked (read-only because of being under source control), this option is missing!!.
I don't think it should be a big problem to enable the right-click menu on a locked vi...
The UI for the find results would need some reworking... we'd need to mark items in the results list that are locked to indicate that Replace won't work. The Replace All button would need to prompt for unlocking diagrams and/or some shortcut for users to only do the replace on diagrams that are already unlocked, maybe a 3rd button ("Replace All Unlocked") or some other UI element.
The above comments are not a pro or con of this idea... just noting something else that would have to be addressed as part of this idea.
Bump, this is very annoying!
The VI icon at the top right of the block diagram view should also maintain it's right-click-find-all functionality in edit mode. That was what I originally thought this idea was about.
