I can across a capture yesterday where there were DNS queries for a
KDC in a Windows AD environment. The query returned 230 KDCs!

Searching for a particular one was hard.

It would be nice to have a right click menu item in either the details
pane or the data pane where you can search for a particular string (or
chars or hex equivalent) and have the string highlighted in the data
pane and the detail pane sync'd to that.

Isn't there a filter you can use, such as: dns.qry.name == "The KDC name"?

Alternatively, it seems you're referring to the Edit -> Find Packet (Ctrl+F)
functionality, combined with Edit -> Find Next (Ctrl+N) and/or Edit -> Find
Previous (Ctrl+B).  Is there something that feature doesn't provide that
you're looking for?
