    I was wondering how you can get the Finder to find your app by its full name instead of just its display name.

    For example, even though the bundle display name is "ZS," you can still type "Smash" to pull up the "Zombie Smash" app.

    Currently, Finder only locates my app by its abbreviated bundle display name.

    Thanks!

    Note that an app's file name can be different from the bundle display name under the icon.

    Yes, the only thing I changed is "Bundle display name" to "PN." Everything else is still default and the app builds as ProductName.app. Finder will only show it if I type "PN."

    Any idea what the issue is?
