It would be nice but that is correct. However, there is a separate Find function in the Preview window. You get to it by opening the side panel (the little ``picture'' icon on the toolbar).

A recursive grep would have to ``know'' (La)TeX and I'm afraid the Apple and OgreKit Find Panels aren't that smart.

Good Luck,
