Hi, there is no list of definitions in the current notebook. There is only a a list of definitions in your current kernel session. If you have more than one notebook evaluated in one kernel session the kernel known nothing about notebooks, it's file names ... You can create a context explicit in every notebook you use and look for the graphics data in that context.
