Same result as before, Spotlight does not find any Scrivener documents or files within a Scrivener project package or folder. Spotlight finds the package or folder by its name - but not any files or documents inside the package. For example, I create a new project "Test" and within this project I may create Drafts "Test.A", "Test.B" and "Test.C" and Research documents "Test.D" and "Test.E". Spotlight can find the project "Test" but cannot find the documents "Test.A", "Test.B" and "Test.C", "Test.D" and "Test.E" within the package or folder. I read forum references about a Scrivener Spotlight Importer. I checked the Spotlight Library Folders at the System and User levels and found no Scrivener Importer plugin. Is there supposed to be one?
The Scrivener project a. k. a. Scrivener folder has the name you gave to your project and so you can find it with Spotlight by searching for that name.
This explains why you can't find the texts inside of a Scrivener project by searching for their names in Spotlight â€“ files of these names just do not exist. Their content, on the opposite, is searchable as these are standard rtfd files with no need of a special Scrivener Spotlight plug-in.
But it would be even better if the rtfds would not just be numbered but have their real names. That would not only enable Spotlight to find them but also make access to them easier from outside of Scrivener, for example, when you open a backup copy of your project on another computer without a Scrivener installation.
