I use OpenOffice to create zillions of word processor files with the extension .odt Finder and/or Spotlight finds words usually, but not always, and this is not acceptable! I need to search everywhere in the computer for single-word strings like "Duncan" or "reincarnation" and I've done numerous tests that prove words are not being seen inside of files. I installed EasyFind, but it doesn't find everything either. I read up on a couple of other search programs, they're talking about how they do currency conversions or send email or wash the floors, or whatever - I don't care about any of that - Also, I read a number of instructions that are supposed to find words through the Terminal but none of them seems to work either. My feeling is, it can't be because they're .odt files, because I AM able to find things most of the time - but it's not dependable and I need dependable. As a professional writer, I need a search that will infallibly find single words in my files. PLEASE HELP!
