Is it possible to search 1 field in HoudahSpot that would work like Spotlight's default that would search the file name & metadata, Spotlight comments etc.? Or do I have to create a search for ANY & type the search query in the Name field & Spotlight comments field?

For example if I search for "e in Spotlight it will only return files I've tagged "e in the Spotlight comments. And if I search for quote (without the & prefix) it will return more results (not just the files I tagged with "e).

Just wondering if there was 1 field I could use in HoudahSpot that would search all? (I tried the "e search in the 'Text content - contains fuzzy' field but it didn't return my tagged files there).

Hi!

Currently there is no such field in HoudahSpot.

The BlitzSearch feature searches both file name and contents, but not Spotlight comments.

I plan on changing this for HoudahSpot 2.2. No promises though, yet.

Cool, I'll look forward to it in the future (at some point).


One other thing...

(I'm not sure if this is a problem with HoudahSpot or LaunchBar?)
I've noticed when using the HoudahSpot search template in LaunchBar that when searching for 2 word queries it adds + in the middle.

For example if I type Time Capsule in HoudahSpot's search template within LaunchBar the actual search in HoudahSpot will say Time+Capsule in both the name & Text content contains fuzzy fields. This won't return any results. But if I remove the + then it will return results properly.

Does this happen for anyone else?

Hi!

This is a known bug. It will be fixed by the next update.

Sorry about that.
