Go to the styles list and select "All Categories." Start typing the name of the style. As you do, Proshow should jump to the name.
No, it's not obvious that you can do this. Try it and see if you don't get close to the effect's name you are looking for when you start typing in the name.
When searching, you can search by more than one letter. If you are looking for say "Picture Line" style, then if you hit P you will be taken to the first "P" in your list. If you then hit "I" as the second letter of "Picture" you will be taken to the first "I" in the list.
But if you hit "P" immediately followed by "I", you should be taken to the first style beginning "Pi" - hopefully "Picture Line".
Also you can search within individual categories, so if you know the style you are looking for is in say "Complex Montages" then select that category, click somewhere in the list and type.
Finally, if the style you are after is say near the end of the "R" segment, sometimes it is easier to go to the next letter "S" and then scan backwards with the up arrow.
So not a substitute for a proper search, but a bit of help.

You might consider taking what's an annoying amount of time to go through your slide styles, checking for those you're unlikely to use and then exporting them to folders followed by deleting them from the styles listing in Producer. My own method is to create descriptively named folders that indicate what's inside them, and then exporting the styles to those folders. Once this is done, I burn them to a CD labeled with what can be found inside it. If I need any of those styles, it's a quick job to add them back into Producer.
Whittling down the list of styles not only helps when trying to find something, but it also unburdens Producer.
