While experimenting with Find/Replace I noticed that if one clicks on the cog icon for the Find part of the panel and then chooses Paragraph Styles to find, the list of choices is quite limited. It is not possible, for example, to find text with the Bullet 2 style, or most of the other Publisher-supplied paragraph styles, nor any user-supplied styles.

The list for Find should include only those paragraph styles that are actually in use (but at a minimum it must include all of those :) ) and the list for Replace should include all currently available paragraph styles.

Here's the limited list I currently see for Find:

Sometimes it seems to show more styles than other times. And sometimes it won't show any. There's clearly something wrong.

Here, for example, is what I see right now, in a document that uses at least 2 different paragraph styles, when I try to Find a paragraph style:

Hi both,

This seems to be a bug. For the meantime, the workaround is to cycle between the Paragraph and Text style panels, or to turn them on/off in the View > Studio section. After this, the F/R section should populate correctly. 

Thanks,

Gabe.
