Your initial post talks about variable labels, but your subsequent comments suggest that you mean value labels.    Which do you mean?

Searching on value labels is already possible,  but searching on variable labels is not.

I'm afraid there isn't such a feature right now.

For the best chance of gettng this implemented soon.   Send a detailed description of how you think it should work (with screenshots if appropriate).

Perhaps this is a feature that doesn't exist, but when working with a larger dataset, is there a way to easily search through variable labels? Right now Ctrl+F and other SPSS-esque shortcuts don't do anything. Is something broken?
