HoudahSpot 2.4 adds another top user requested feature: Text preview. In addition to the existing QuickLook preview, HoudahSpot now provides a dedicated preview feature for text files. Within this preview search strings are automatically highlighted for efficient search result browsing. Additionally it is possible to search the text preview.
With HoudahSpot 2, users may create detailed queries to pinpoint the exact file they want to get to. The results may be shown with any number of columns. The list may be sorted by any attribute imaginable. Users may set up templates for frequently performed searches and save queries for direct access to favorite files.
One of HoudahSpot's key features is its extensive customization. Once fully customized, a preferred template may be set as starting point for future queries.
With HoudahSpot's all-in-one interface, results are shown next to the search query. By taking advantage of Leopard's unique features, users can issue powerful search queries to the Spotlight engine to zero in on files quickly and easily. And with live editing, user may change search criteria on-the-fly without stopping the running query.
