There may be a way to do this that I am not aware of, but it would be great to be able to enter the memory address of an object and be able to locate it in Reveal.

    Hi Jim,

    It's definitely possible to filter the view hierarchy in Reveal using a memory address and other properties! Filtering has been introduced in Reveal 2 and significantly improved in Reveal 6. To filter by memory address in the latest versions of Reveal, click the search icon in the "Filter Items" field in the bottom-left corner, choose "Memory Address", and enter the address you're looking for. More information about filtering is available in our blog post.

    Please let me know if this answers your question.

    Best regards,
