I just cleaned up my report by using Merge fields, and it's all very pretty now. However I've noticed now that if I click Find, I can no longer select any of the fields. Can you not use Find with merged fields? Is there a way to create a separate layout that it switches to when using Find?

 

Edit: Never mind. I realized I can still access it in Table view, just not in list view. Ahh, the vagaries of FMP.

You are correct that you cannot enter data in a merge field in Find Mode. However, you can include a merge field for Quick Finds, and you can use the OnModeEnter script trigger to switch layouts or slide panels displaying enterable fields, if you'd like.
