10.4: Spotlight's rules for indexing plain text files
Authored by: Guntis on Aug 06, '05 01:04:24PM

I use PearLyrics program to fetch song lyrics (from Internet) played in iTunes. What's funny, is that Spotlight doesn't find PearLyrics lyrics files in txt format in my Documents folder! Specifically, I enter "All I remember is a smile at the top of every working morning" (with the quoation marks) and Spotlight finds nothing, but this text is copy/paste from the lyrics file I see on my screen. So what's good that I have Spotlight if it doesn't index even txt files (they *have* .txt extension)??? I tried to save this lyrics file once more to the same folder, hoping that doing so it will be indexed, but no - still no search results...

I'm not really a Windows user...I just play one at work.
