A note from a reader of my recent Spotlight article asked how to make including Spotlight Items and System Files the default search settings. My response: whatever your default search settings, create them and save them as a Smart Folder. But even after that he didn't quite grasp how to use such a Smart Folder, so I made him a little movie showing what to do. Notice how, if you summon the search criteria of the saved search, they include everything including the original search term. So now you can change the search term, keeping the other settings as defaults (or possibly adding more criteria). The same point is made on p. 67 of my Leopard ebook, but the movie is more vivid. (Hmmm, maybe we should make movie versions of everything in our books!)
Easy Fetch Upload
If you want to upload an open file (e.g. in Photoshop or BBEdit) to a remote server via the Fetch FTP client, you can use drag-and drop without switching to the Finder. Just drag the small document icon in the window title bar to a Fetch window. If the icon won't drag, make sure the file is saved.
