Sharpless objects in TheSkyX

I'm writing this mostly for me to remember:

TheSkyX has a catalog of all sharpless objects - and many other catalogs. But for some reasons, you can't find them just by typing 'sh2-101' into the search box. You have to type 'SAC sh2-101'. You can also show them in the map - go to Input -> Database Manager -> Optional Databases and select the catalog that you want to show.
