On the Mac, the find edit option does not work in the sql editor pane

How to repeat:
On the Mac, open MySQL Workbench.
Open a connection.
In the sql editor pane, press <command><F>
Nothing happens.  Go to menu and try to do it there, same problem, nothing happens.

Suggested fix:

Also experiencing this issue on mac OSX 10.9.1.  Also present in WB 6.0.7 and didn’t correct itself after upgrading to 6.0.8. 

It worked fine for a few months, then suddenly stopped working.  Not corrected on uninstall/reinstall.  Menu item is grayed out, and keyboard shortcut does nothing.

Coworkers are also experiencing this.

CMD+F now properly brings in the search bar, and puts the focus into the search-textbox.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.1.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Mac OS X, "Command" + "F" did not open a search box in the SQL editor.

Thank you for the bug report.
