Many other Mac (and PC) programs have a Find option which limits the 
search action to only the selected region, or selected cells, of a 
document.  Mathematica apparently doesn't?

[Underlying objective is to be able to find, using NotebookFind[ ], all 
the Input cells within one single Section (or maybe Subsection) of a 
notebook and toggle the Cell Evaluatable property on and off for those 
cells in a single action, *without* screwing up the Cell Evaluatable 
properties of all the other header and text cells within that Section, 
and without changing the Input cells in all the other Sections of the 
document -- perhaps using a palette with buttons to do this.]
