I need to be able to find object and class references in scenes that aren't open in the scene view. I know that in 3.5 scenes are text based, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a search tool / utility that already does this or how it can be done currently?
I have the ability to right click on a class and choose "Find references in scene", which looks in the currently opened scene, or even use "select dependencies" on items in the project view. I've even tried copying the search string that "Find references in scene" creates and used that in the project search bar - this doesn't work unfortunately.
But what I'm after is the ability to right click or select a class and "find references in all objects in project including unopened scenes".
This would be massively helpful :) We have 70 scenes currently, you can imagine the hassle while doing localization.

You can write an EditorWindow script and use the editor utilities to open/close each scene one after another and list all found objects in this window.
Read the documentation.
