Search in "Category"
« on: May 09, 2007, 12:15:19 PM »
Hi,
To my horror I just found out that PM/Spotlight don't look in the box "Category" in IPTC Stationery Pad when I search for certain pictures? Please please tell me I am doing something wrong.
I am using Mac OS 10.4.9 and PM 4.4.3.3

Best Karsten

Are you doing a Search or a Find?  Are you using Spotlight outside of PM?

I am using both Spotlight outside of PM and inside a contactsheet in the field with the magnifying glass. I am also trying "Find" in the edit-menu. You can't choose Category in "Search"

Karsten,

Find only searches the folder(s) contained in the current contact sheet.

Spotlight does not index Category or any of the Supplemental Categories.  I don't know why Apple chose not to index that data, but they definitely don't do it.  That is why PM does not offer to search any of those fields with Spotlight.
