I've seen this posted elsewhere on the web (without good answers) and I just cannot believe such a *gigantic* bug isn't fixed. Word 2008 is pretty much unusable to my wife and I - at least the docx Word files are - because spotlight doesn't seem to be able to search within the files. We have a lot of files and don't always memorize the filename or where we put it. We shouldn't HAVE to! Spotlight should take care of this. I want to see all the docs where I mentioned "triathlon" in them. It doesn't work! Anyway, I know Microsoft was responsible for coding an indexer. Anyone know if they did? ETA on the fix?
