    did anyone else notice that the spotlight in leopard is different. In tiger when you would hit show all it would show the top hits. I really liked this feature now it just comes up in a window. Is there anyway to get the old tiger way back?

    That is something I'm very angry / bitter / passionate about.

    If you find this solution - please PM me.

    I'm thinking of upping the ransom in my sig...

    yes

    yes, in my opinion the new show all, taking the user to an open folder of possibly 1000's of items, it USELESS.

    There is no real easy way to sort through this stuff, just a further bolean search to pare down the search results. I REALLY wish they would bring back the SHOW ALL summary

    I was wondering why Leopard shows me hundreds of files when I just want to narrow it down to images.

    I like the speed of the search but I only want the Top Hits and then I want to Show All of a certain kind. :rolleyes:

    I hope they fix this too. It pisses me off everytime I use it.

    I'm still hating the new Spotlight in Leopard.

    For a quick thread hijacking...

    I looked at the scientology website:
    http://theunfunnytruth.ytmnd.com/

    I wanted to see what else this site was pushed towards - but could not find any external links or directories. I viewed the source code, and grabbed this address at random on the bottom.

    http://content.ytmnd.com/



    It shows a pic of Sean Connery - but the top of the picture looked abnormally out of focus - I zoom in, to see all these strange random clips / pages - WTF is up with that?

    Back to original topic - I'm up to 10 dollars - if anyone can get the original Tiger Spotlight to work in Leopard for me, it's yours.

    good idea

    Hey, good Idea! I'll double that 10$ with another 10$ if anyone can get the original search results back.

    Maybe, if we get the numbers up, someone over at apple will notice?

    Can we do a poll here maybe, how many like the new layout display, and or miss the old segregrated results window?

    Okay, I'm giving this a bump too. This show all thing has really killed spotlight for me, maybe something different in 10.5.2? Somehow I doubt it though :(
