Use Spotlight to index any text file - Globally
Authored by: raphaeld on Jun 03, '05 11:05:58AM

I wrote a quick Xcode/AppleScript app for me to make a quck note and save it as a text file (I'm using AppleScripts write command) in a folder with the intention of using Spotlight to retrieve the info in the future. Unfortunately, for reasons unknown to me, Spotlight doesn't index them. Would your hint solve this problem? If so, how would I modify it for these files (I'm saving them as .txt files) that I thought would already be indexed?

Thanks
