I am sure it’s possible, as `Insert Begin/End’, for instance, works when called from the preview, as do others. There probably is a more elegant solution altogether, that simply makes the standard `Find’ command available. (The alternative, of course, is to move to the source window, which is what I do currently.)

I guess I wouldn't find Cmd-1, Cmd-F terrible to do; Cmd-1 switches to the Source window so that Cmd-F gives the usual Find dialog.
Also, If you are trying to find a location in the Source based on a location in the Preview simply Cmd-Click in the Preview window at the location and it will show up in the Source window. It works the other way too---well, not quite as well since it gets you to the correct paragraph rather than the right words.
