10.4: More convenient filename searches
Authored by: landis on Jul 06, '07 08:18:30AM

Short delay my @$$....

Sorry, I get so annoyed with Spotlight. I've given up on searches ever actually working or not freezing my computer. I actually miss OS 9 on this side of things.

But, I tried to follow your hint and got stuck. No 'Raw Query' option was available on my drop-down (that took almost a minute with a MacPro, 4GB RAM). My options in the r's are Radiance (HDRI) document, RealOne Player Media Files, RTF, RPNC File, and RTFD.

No joy on Raw Query.

You're probably clicking in the second drop-down, not the first. The first drop-down has to be changed to "Other..." not "Kind".

No "Raw Query?"

So you clicked on "Kind" and then selected "Other..."?

After you do that, a box should appear that says "Select a search attribute."

You then select "Raw Query" from that box.
