I have found that "Get Info For Selection" sometimes returns an information window and sometimes not. I cannot trace this to permissions. When it fails, simply nothing happens and it sometimes fails on a given file and sometimes succeeds, but if it fails or succeeds in a given search result then it will continue to do so. Closing HoudahSpot and researching may change the behavior. Not a major deal, just a little irksome for a great program.

 I am using version 2.5.9 and have seen this in Leopard 10.5.8 and now in Snow Leopard 10.6.1 on the same machine, an MBP 17" unibody.

Hi!

Sorry to hear you are experiencing problems.

This is the first time this problem is reported. The next time "Get Info For Selection" fails, could you please check Console.app for any error messages or warnings.

Best,

Hi!

Thank you for reporting this issue.

The bug is triggered only when trying to get the Finder Info on packages. I will see to fix this with the next update.
