Hello,

I am trying to determine why Houdah is missing files in its search, Spotlight is doing fine on the same searches, so the locations are indexed,

Any guidance would be great,

Thanks for replying. Attached is a comparison of a result with Houdah and Spotlight, Houdah does not pick up the folders and locally stored Evernotes. Thanks for any guidance,

Hi!

The screenshot is cut off on the sides. My guess is that results are limited to the first 100. Evernote files probably got pushed out of the top 100.

Please try changing the limit to a higher value and to "recently modified".

Please check Window > Show Query Inspector. You should see:
((((kMDItemDisplayName == '*kaku *'cd)) || ((kMDItemAlternateNames == '*kaku *'cd))))

Please give HoudahSpot 4.0 a try.

Best,

Thank you for the guidance, ... The results I wanted to see were "[] pushed out of the top 100," switched to the 500 view to see them. 

It appears that if you are in, e.g., the 100 view and reorder the hits only the hits in the 100 view are reordered and not the total hits, one cannot reorder to bring different file types into the view,

Again Thanks,

Hi!

Indeed, the left pane defines your search: what, where and when.

The right pane is used to explore search results. You can add columns, sort by those columns, or enter text in the search field above the results to filter results. This alters how you see the results, but does not alter the actual search.

If you wish to narrow down results to a more manageable list, you can keep adding search criteria to the live search. One convenient way to do so is "find by example"
