10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window
Authored by: hamarkus on Mar 07, '08 09:01:48AM

For me it still starts search at 'My Mac' or / not in my user folder (and I have changed this key:
<key>CurrentFolderPath</key>
<string>/Users/hamarkus</string>
)

I really would like the behaviour to change such that it starts searching in the current folder not in /.

Same with me: I'd love to have the default search in the actual folder...

And in my configuration the plist- file does not change anything.

Adding the system file to the default search by this method works for me.

10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window

Me too! But I haven't figured out how to make that happen. I'd also like it to default to File Name and not contents, but I haven't figured out that one either.

10.5: Change the Finder's default Find window
Authored by: klktrk on Mar 08, '08 07:14:27AM

		<key>CurrentFolderPath</key>
		<array>
			<string>.</string>
		</array>
and

		<key>FXScopeArrayOfPaths</key>
		<array>
			<string>.</string>
		</array>
seem to be working for me. Haven't experimented enough to see whether I actually need both. I replaced wherever I saw the path with "."

Does not work for me

Replaced in both the default_smart.plist and the alternate_smart.plist and relaunched the Finder. Still starts at /.

No, sadly this doesn't seem to do anything. You still must manually click the current folder.

boo
