    Quicksilver isn't really designed to do such a thing. It is supposed to be more focused. Use Spotlight to find everything, thats what it is there for. CMD+space.

    Yes it was. And I figured out hwo to do it it. You go into catalogue and change everything's 'depth' from 1 ( the default ) to infinity ( infinite depth search, i.e every file is searchable )


    If i hadn't done more research I would have been led to believe that this was not possible by you! Please don't pass bad information on to Macrumors posters !

    Don't. The original reply was right - you should use Spotlight for searching system-wide.

    Setting a depth of infinity in the Catalog will cause Quicksilver to slow down considerably. Put the folders you most access there, and set a depth of 0, 1 or 2.
