Pierre - there's a little app you recommended that forces spotlight to go to work on a particular drive - I can't remember the name of it...

I just upgraded to Lion - and my main music drive seems to be only semi-indexed.  I need to somehow force spotlight to re-index the whole music drive ... right now houdah is only finding a small portion of the files that are actually on there... and I'm sure it's because spotlight has NOT fully indexed that drive...

Hi!

The application I usually recommend is SpotLess. It seems however this was not yet updated for Mac OS X Lion.

You may also force re-indexing by going to the Spotlight System Preferences pane. There add your hard disk to the Privacy list. Wait a bit and remove it again.

Best,

thanks - that indeed works...

another weird hoodah / Lion issue... for some reason, I can no longer type directly in a houdah search window. I don't know why!

What I have to do now is type the search item in another program, like text edit, and paste it into houdah... makes no sense, but this is the way it's been since the upgrade...

Hi!

Are you seeing the issue where the HoudahSpot text fields loose focus after every character you type?

One of the more recent versions of HoudahSpot 3.3.X fixed this Lion compatibility issue. The current version works fine on Lion.

Best,

I will try to upgrade to the newer version... thanks again.
