Key Features of HoudahSpot 2:
- Complex Searches. Made Easy!
HoudahSpot has been designed from the ground up with ease of use and convenience in mind.
You will feel right at home. We feel it is not the user who needs to be educated, but the software that should be made to the user's need.
- Highly Customizable
HoudahSpot may save your queries as documents. These documents remember not only the search criteria,
but also the list of displayed columns, the sort order, whether the query is active or not, ….
Documents saved as templates are always available from the menu bar.
Create a preferred template to serve as starting point for all your future HoudahSpot documents.
That's right: you can preset all aspects of a new document.
- Find by Example
It's never been easier to find similar files. Drag a file to a criteria and it will reflect the file's property.
To find all Microsoft Word files, just drag one such file onto the "Content Type" criterion
- Query Stationaries
You may save your queries for later reference. A query set up with a few basic criteria and a
search scope might serve as a starting point for future searches.
It all starts with a basic query form. Take it from there to pinpoint the files you are looking for.
With HoudahSpot you may search by name, contents, date, type or any other file attribute.
HoudahSpot knows all attributes indexed by Spotlight. You can query, show or sort by any of these attributes.
- Saved Searches
Saved searches are much like smart folders. When saving a search its run state and result sort order
are saved along with the query. A search saved while running jumps back to life as soon as it is opened.
- All-in-one Interface
See the search results next to the query criteria. Results are updated as you modify the criteria.
- Exclude by Location
Alongside a scope for the search you may define a list of places to ignore.
- Limit Output
E.g. show only the 100 most recently opened files
- Unlimited Columns
Show and sort by any attribute you can think of.
HoudahSpot leverages Apple's powerful and fast Spotlight engine. It does not waste this engine's
horsepower to run searches before you are done entering criteria. The search starts when you are ready:
at your command.
Behind the pretty interface hides the power to find files hidden in the darkest corners.
Boolean logic allows you to pinpoint files with deadly accuracy.
- Live Results
Search results remain up-to-date as long as they are on screen. Create a new file and it instantly
shows up in the searches that match it.
Preview your files using Apple's QuickLook technology
- Copy-Paste Support
Copy from the result list to your favorite text editor or spreadsheet.
