FoxTrot Pro Search
CTM has released FoxTrot Professional Search, a tool for running deeper searches into Mac file systems. The app extends past filenames to search for content within metadata, as well as the text inside of PDF, HTML, e-mail and word processing files. Search results are categorized and ranked on relevance, and users can maintain multiple indexed collections and timed updates, without having to launch the program.
Users can load previews or full views of documents, and conduct secondary searches solely within the context of the file. Unlike the Personal edition of FoxTrot, Professional users can additionally tap into networking support, although this requires a five-user licensing pack. The pack costs $307, but a single copy is $153, and a 30-day beta trial is available. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required.
