how to "find within note" todo/checkbox?

dont want to do anything special with checkboxes, just want to find them within a single note like you can for text within a single note.

notice how it counts how many instances of the found items? how can this be done/what is the syntax to find checkboxes/todo items?

I put checkboxes at the top of my notes for fast visibility and use the search term:
todo:false

thank you jbenson2, but iwas not talking about using the search box, but rather the find within note function when you hit ctrl-f

No way that I know of -- in-note find is text only as far as I can tell.

Jeff's correct, find-in-note is text only.

More generally, is there any way to search for todo checkboxes and just display a list of the text associated with the checkboxes? Rather than the current todo:false which just lists every note which contains an unchecked box.

Not in the Evernote client, no. You might check the Trunk for third-party programs that do so, but I don't know of any.
