I use a text editor on the bib file (whatever is handy/installed but
usually Notepad, WinEdt, TecnicCenter, or the like) and have
references split into alphabetical lists demarcated by
%%%%% -A- %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%, etc
When I want to find a reference, just do a search on -A-, -B-, etc. or
scroll. Since all references are together searching is all text based.
