Clicky

RogerBarnett
When I get the search results list, I can no longer open the item directly.  Double-clicking does not work, nor does control-command-O.

Hi!

Both ways of opening files work as expected here.

Could you please check /Applications/Utilities/Console.app for error messages?

There were no error messages in Console.  I rebooted and it works OK now.  Can't say for sure what happened.

I have the same problem and rebooting doesn't help. No errors to be found in the logs also...

I'm also seeing this issue. Here's some more info though.

1. If I switch to icon view, I can double click on the entry or use Ctrl-Command-O and the item opens up fine.

2. When in any view, if I choose to Open With.. and pick an app, the item will open.

Still nothing in the Console logs.

Hi!

Am I understanding this correctly: the problem is only with the list view?

Grid view and CoverFlow views are not affected, right?

Does changing the selection help?

No the problem occurs for me in list view and flow view. The only one that seems to work with double clicking is icon view. Funny thing about icon view is that I can't seem to ctrl-click to get a context menu for the object like I can in list view. Is this a bug or supposed to work this way?

Hi!

It's a limitation. The contextual menu is implemented only for the list view. The full feature set however is available from the main menu in all three views.

Hi Pierre,

Just wondering if you managed to figure out the problem here? Clicking the doc from the path does work but that's of course a bit of a hassle..

Hi Gerben,

I unfortunately have no fix yet as I was so far unable to reproduce the problem.

An update. I performed both a Volume repair and Permissions repair and now double-clicking an entry works for me. Not sure which one did the trick, but give it a shot.

Hi!

I double-checked everything related to opening files before releasing todays update. I could not find anything that looked suspicious.

Could you please check /Applications/Utilities/Console.app for error messages?

Nothing in my console log related to HoudahSpot except the query:

It worked exactly once after a Spotlight reindex today. Second time the same problem. I cannot find any error messages in the logs..

Hi!

I am sorry, I cannot currently offer an explanation for this phenomenon. Please let me know if you find a pattern in this behavior or a way to reliably reproduce the problem.

I wish I could see a pattern or reproduce but since the last update it simply stopped working, no steps to take..

Do you have an older version of HS somewhere so I could use that meanwhile?

If I can think of anything I'll let you know.

All best,

Hi!

I am really baffled by this problem.

BTW are you on PowerPC of Intel?

Of course, you are free to keep using [URL=http://www.houdah.com/houdahSpot/updates/cast2_assets/HoudahSpot%202.4.4.zip]HoudahSpot 2.4[/URL].

Hi,

Cannot open applications directly from list view.  If application is already open, document will load.  If not, calling for document to load has no effect.  Nothing on console.
Can open document directly in icon view.
Now using v.2.5.4.
