Well I tend to search in a folder full of project folders that contain the InDesign files. I guess you're suggesting that the InDesign search doesnt search within folders?....if so it seems a bit daft that.
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...
Just never used it for general file browsing, kept it all Finder based. Generally because my Mac doesnt have enough juice to run ID, PS, ILL and Bridge so opening and closing apps constantly became a pain.
PS. Plus it takes up a fair bit of screen real estate...I know you can use Mini version but that makes you click forward and backwards alot.
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?
