And it won’t find newly-added apps until they’ve been opened at least once. When I install a new app, I’m forced to open it from the Applications folder the first time.
The instructions say
Type ~ (the tilde sign) to quickly select your home folder
Or type / (forward slash) to quickly select your boot volume
Use the arrow keys keys to browse the contents of the selected folder or volume
Okay, but how come when I type a slash, all the root folders aren’t shown, instead I see this?
I don’t know why those composers are shown - I haven’t played the related tracks recently.
I didn’t even recognize the names, I had to go search for 'em - they’re listed as the composers in some tracks of varying genres.
There are over a hundred iTunes tracks with a slash in the title, why aren’t some of those recently-played tracks shown instead?
When I click the right arrow, all the expected root folders are shown. Seems to me if I type a slash, then I want to start from the root folder, not some arbitrary music tracks.
Ditto for the tilde. When I type a ~, I expect to see the folders within my Home folder.
But all I see is one recipe in my Documents folder that hasn’t been opened since 7/21/09.
Like before, pressing the right arrow brings the expected folders into view.
And that's after I updated the index about 20 minutes ago.
If I type a slash and go to the Country/Male item and click the right arrow, only about 40 items are listed, even though there are hundreds of tracks in iTunes with that genre. Why?
When I type NU in Spotlight, Network Utility is the first app listed.
But it doesn’t show up at all in LB, even though hundreds of items are found, and was just used yesterday.
I do use an app to clean all my caches & logs frequently, so is that effecting LB’s index?
A while back I added my Home folder to the Index (against dev. advice), but not much in it is found by LB. Desktop, Documents & iTunes items are found, but nothing in Movies, Pictures, Downloads, or other folders I created in Home. So I guess I’ll have to add each folder in Home to the index?
That seems unnecessarily burdensome, that’s why I added the entire Home folder instead. So why isn’t the Home folder being searched?
I HATE THE SCROLLBAR! It’s very difficult to grab the slider or click successfully in its invisible track. I click and click and click to no avail, and have to try repeatedly to grab the slider.
I - HATE - IT!!!
