    I'm trying to create a smart folder that ONLY looks for files in a certain folder. The only options in 10.5 are "Entire Mac" or "myusername" I want to be able to select "documents" but there is no way to do it. There is no way to select "other" like there was in 10.4. Why can't I do this? It's stupid... Please help me.

    Open the folder first (documents) then select file -> find. The documents folder should now be one of the options to create the smart folder.

    I am sorry. I don't understand the question.
