The search boxes in the inspector window window returns no results whenever I try to search for specific key-value pairs like: role="main".

I can only get results for main or role. Is there a search string parameter/syntax reference anywhere? I've searched high and low, but articles/references found in the documentation is VERY basic.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm not aware of any documentation for it, although there might be something. As far as I can tell, you can typically just search for a string of text, but this won't work in some cases, like what you've found. You can also type CSS selectors to find elements, which works a lot better - for your example, you could use this CSS selector:

[role="main"]

Hope that helps!
