It appears to me that even if I have EagleFiler running, if I want to do a search, such as through Launchbar, I MUST have a window in EF open. If I close the window, I’m closing the library, and EF won’t work without that.
I’m coming from Devonthink, and there I can institute a seach by filling in a field in a menubar item. It DT isn’t running, it will launch. It will remember the last database used, and will search it.
I do not have to lanch DT, and then tell it to open a particular database, and then keep the window for it open all the time. The problem with DT is that its interface cannot be “decluttered” for the most basic, most simple search: “find this word.”
That’s all I want. Just find this word. I don’t want to analyze frequency of occurance or anything. Just show me the documents where the word is used.
You’d thing something this simple would be easy, and I thought EF would do it… but I have to get things all lined up just so, windows opened an position etc etc.
Am I missing something here?
