If you have a big String, such as: "thisIsAReasonablyLongStringThatMightBeUsedInDifferentLines", it is likely it is referred to in code as a concatenation, sometimes with multiple breaks. This happens a lot with JPA named queries names. It would be helpful if the IDE had in all Find actions a String mode that was able to find such occurrences. 

A plus would be if it took into account concatenations with literal Strings.
