    Has anyone seen the new advanced search function in Tiger?


    From what I understand the new features are:
    • The new smart folder on the left
    • Search Criteria (Kind: Images, Color Space: CMYK)
    • Search Area (Folder "Documents", Home, Everywhere)
    • Save as smart folder (Save button top right)

    In addition to searching by colour space you can search by orientation.

    Selective Search?

    Anyone else find that Spotlight doesn't actually search the whole hard disk, even if you've selected "Everywhere" in the Finder? Whatever I try it simply refuses to search certain folders, such as:

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    I think that is set up to keep the average user out of trouble. If it starts popping up results from system folders and your Joe Blow user says, "Hey, I didn't create that! In the Trash you go!!" you've got a problem. Also, it takes the fun out of the "Look at this obscure resource, future product?" threads.

    Hmm, I hope this doesn't stay in though. I understand that they might do it for this reason, but if I select everywhere, I want it to search everywhere. Another option to go in the finder/spotlight prefs perhaps "I'm an advanced user, don't hide my files".

    The WWDC preview doesn't have these features. It's much more limiting. But it appears that Steve's copy did, so I suspect we'll hear more about it when Apple releases a new seed.

    Where did you get the hi-res shots of that build?

    Lets just say a friend in Apple lent them to me ;)
