for example, when I type in: combustion of coal I get not just all files containing these three words but also files containing only one of them... now how do I get spotlight to list only the files that contain the exact phrase? quotes/dbl quotes don't do the job... I found this forum entry stating it isn't possible, but I cannot believe that such a fundamental thing is missing! I cannot find real information from apple on how to use spotlight in more sophisticated ways either... can anybody help me with this? thanks!
