Alternatively, you can click the Search button on the main menu and then click the DB Metadata tab in the Search window:

Now you need to choose the database connection against which to run the search. You only need to select the database connection(s) in the Objects Source field.
In the Object Types field, you can select the database objects among which DBeaver will run the metadata search – select or clear the checkboxes.
You can specify that the object name starts with, contains or is similar to the search combination (Name match field). You can also set the maximum number of results to display (Max results field) and apply Case-sensitive search.

After you click Search, the results will open in a Search view:

Double-clicking a row in the Search view opens the respective object in a dedicated Database Object editor.
