Hi all,

 

Im puzzled, if I do I search in a Mountain Lion finder window I get results like so:

However, doing the same search via InDesigns FILE - OPEN pane, results in nothing?

Am I missing something or is it a bug?

 

Thanks


Andy

    The only thing you'll find in the file open window would be INDD INDT IDML and IDDB files.

    Are you in the right folder?

    That's more an O/S thing than an InDesign thing, I think. Open/Save

    dialogs in OSX are featureless.

     

    If you want to search for ID files withing multiple folders I suggest

    using Bridge.

    I'm having the same problem. I don't think it's an OS thing, since in the Finder I can find the docs I need and open them from there. In the open file dialogue however, Indesign CS6 comes with 0 results even when I search my whole disk. I already renewed preferences. Would love to find a solution...

    I'd be interested to hear why think Bridge is a pain to use. I rely on it as one of the essential tools in my workflow.

    Why use bridge (which is slow to start up and clutters screen more) when Finder has all it takes? (And ID CS6, when it works as it should)

     

    Where can we notice the adobe-people to add this to the bug list? Or is there anyone to give a solution?
