Is there a way to get Apple Spotlight to show Finale files?
Mine are always excluded, and I have to use the Find function, or worse, hunt around in folders for what I'm looking for.
Can one do this, and place them in a sorted priority?

Thanks!

Search the manual for information about the Spotlight plug-in to make sure you have what you need. It works fine for me, and can search for all kinds of things, like time signature.

Bill, so I created a smart search folder, and it shows up in a finder left column, but how do you get it into Spotlight, up in the upper right?
