When a search in HS yields PDF documents in the results I can hit enter to open the PDF and the search phrase is automatically inserted in the search box of Skim/Preview.

However, I sometimes combine various spellings of a name/phrase in one search and I notice that HS always inserts the first phrase in the search box.

Example: I search for text contents with "Mark Jarblum" and "Mark Yarblum" (any is true). If I open a PDF from HS the first phrase ("Mark Jarblum") is always inserted, even if the document shows up in my results because the second phrase ("Mark Yarblum") was in the text.

Would it be possible to change this or is that beyond HS and an OS X issue?

Best,
Gerben

Hi!

HoudahSpot creates a query which it passes to the Spotlight engine and gets back a list of files. Unfortunately it is not possible for HoudahSpot to know why a document was matched.

Thus the best thing HoudahSpot can do is use the first text string it finds in your criteria.

So it's an OS X issue, thanks for clarifying!
