As a temporary work around that's far less than ideal, you can download the Notes with the node titles as headings, search within that document locally, and then search for the matching node within the Mindmup tool.
Not great, but at least it holds you over until they implement this.

This seems really really hard for them to implement. They'd have to be able to open any possible file you can attach, and know how to perform a text search within it. What if you had a picture attached that didn't have the ".png" file extension (for example)? What if it were an MS Word document (it's a big business for a website other than Microsoft to be able to even open MS Word documents properly since it's so difficult).
This sounds like it would be better handled with something like an option to download all attachments with one click, so a user that needs to do something like this can download all the files and use some local computer tool to search all the files, figure out which file contains what they're looking for, and then find which node(s) have that attached.
This request is really two things: be able to apply color selection to multiple nodes, and provide customizable "quick styles".
For the first part, it's a problem with their selection mechanism. Shfit+click does multi-selection but Ctrl+click doesn't. This is completely non-standard with all other tools in existence, Shfit+click always selects everything between the start and end point in a standard UI and Ctrl+click always selects individual items that are clicked. Mindmup, the Shift+click works like Ctrl+click in anything else, and Ctrl+click does nothign.
This could also be described as wanting to be able to define "quick styles" for nodes. If there were a drop down in the toolbar to pick between "quick styles", and it were possible to add/modify these styles, it would help with quickly changing some nodes without having to click thru a number of screens to change the color and/or text properties.
