I have a blend file that I am using as a materials library. I have discovered that there are node groups that were not named, so I have a collection of NodeGroup.xxx groups. I would like to find the users of these groups so that I can rename them with meaningful names.

Google searches have not turned anything up.

Is there such a tool, or am I reduced to visiting each material until I find the user?

    $\begingroup$ I create a new shader. In the node editor I hit A to bring up the add menu and scroll down to group. As I scroll through the groups I find groups named NodeGroup.xxx. I want to find what materials are currently using NodeGroup.xxx so that I can figure out a more descriptive name to give it. $\endgroup$ – Marty Fouts May 19 '18 at 20:32
