Find all instances of a Paragraph Style
Find all instances of a Paragraph Style in a document via the Paragraph Styles panel. Like you can see with Links, be able to view the pages that the styles exist on and jump to these pages by clicking on the page number in the panel or be able to navigate through them with up and down arrows

This would help immensely!

I would definitely love to have this feature, to clean up files being handed off from one designer to another, and to identify if a style is applied within the layout or just on a pasteboard item.
Yes please! I am actually surprised this doesn't exist already in 'Find/Change' as a tab and that it doesn't have a shortcut in Paragraph Style palette corner menu, the same way there's 'Find this colour' in the swatch palette corner menu.
YES, I was about to post this! I was trying to organize my paragraph and text styles in a massive shared document where text is added by less experienced users who aren't aware about the importance of styles. I needed to go through a 200 page document to add paragraph styles to make a TOC. The path of least resistance to tell if something was an active style or a duplicate that is used in one section only, was to delete that style. Then replace it with a different massive font style and see how many things got overset. This is a terrible workflow, but it did the job without needing me to google. Highlighting it would let me know in a document what parts are correctly formatted. Especially as a lot of the documents were formatted without using any styles, and going back and updating all the text is a nightmare. A version of the style override highlighting that differentiates between styles would be incredible.

Agreed! This would be helpful for cleaning up files before handoff. I sometimes have styles that appear minimally within a document and I want to be able to quickly identify, alter and/or delete them.
