10.5: Use text snippets to quickly build accurate searches
Authored by: FOOOD on Dec 20, '07 08:22:25AM

Yea, I use TextExpander snippets a lot for Spotlight searches, it's very handy. Here are some I use all the time:

name: 'typeyoursearch' - nm (searches for filenames only, not metadata)
kind:folder 'typeyoursearch' - kff
kind:image 'typeyoursearch' - kii
kind:bookmark 'typeyoursearch' - kbb
etc...

kind:bookmark OR kind:history "typeyoursearch" - kbh
(This will search bookmarks & browsing history, placing the cursor inside the quote marks to start typing & narrowing down the search results).
