Not true at all, it's consitently inconsistent
Authored by: SOX on May 27, '05 10:29:06AM

You're simply reporting what you see on your machine. In fact the behaviour is weirdly inconsistent on many machines. I have tested it on several and the behaviour varies. On one computer I have it alwaya works the way you would expect. command F brings up a search window with the folder you are in listed as a search point and selected by default.

However on the machine I am typing this on weird things happen. If I am in column view then pressing command-F pulls up the search window with the selected folder listd at the top, but it is NOT selected by default. ("computer" is selcted). And if I am in icon or list view then the current folder is NOT even shown at the top. Also if I am in column view and I got there not by navigating down from the top but by clicking on the sidebar (e.g. pictures) then again the current folder does not appear in the list.

It's buggy.
