10.4: Use older Sherlock to search by filename
Authored by: zerologic on Jul 06, '05 10:48:41AM

What's the problem here? Command - F in the finder, click the Kind drop down menu, choose "other" and then choose Filename. You can then add it to your favorites so it'll show up from then on.

No need for anything other than Finder. ;-)

10.4: Use older Sherlock to search by filename
Authored by: diamondsw on Jul 06, '05 11:46:06AM

Good luck searching invisible folders such as etc, var, and the like. With Sherlock it was possible (but DAMN that was one fugly app!) to do so on the fly, with Spotlight, forget about it.

<http://www.grunenberg.net> It isn't much prettier than sherlock but it is faster, more powerful and doesn't require classic.

You can add the filename attribute to the favorites section of the find command so that it is quickly available.

Sounds great as a solution. But: how do I save this to Favorites?
