    Hi guys,

    I have a PDF library located inside a bundle. Spotlight does not appear to search inside this bundle even if I trigger the search from inside it. I need it to index the PDFs to allow searching for key words in the text of the PDFs. If I remove the PDFs from the bundle Spotlight works fine, but I then loose some functionality of the software that I am using.

    Any clues on how to make spotlight do this? I am running Snow Leopard.

    Shoot! Spotlight can't search inside Folders!

    Just yesterday, trying to help someone, I couldn't remember where the Menu Extras Folder was located. Spotlight was useless. I finally found it on my own.
