10.6: Add Size and other columns to search results
Authored by: V.K. on Sep 08, '09 08:09:23AM

Great hint!!! The omission of the size column in finder search results in Snow leopard is mysterious and seems to be a bug, actually. it was advertised as possible just before SL launch and this column does show up in "show view options" for search results but is grayed out for some reason.

10.6: Add Size and other columns to search results
Authored by: garcher on Sep 10, '09 08:27:58AM

I love it -- I found it also works for SMART folders (which are really just saved finder queries anyway).

I'd opened this as a bug back when 10.5 came out and it was eventually closed with the 'will be fixed in a future release'. Imagine my disappointment when it still did not work in SL. So far, size has been the one that I use -- a good way to get the size of various files (dmg, pdfs, presentations).
