Search to return docs, ignoring subfolder levels

Postby pgt » Thu Jul 06, 2017 5:32 am

I have a folder with subfolders for A, B, C, D, etc. Each (level 1) subfolder contains many documents (PDFs). I would like to be able to search by document title, across all of the subfolders, without going through or showing the individual subfolders.

In other words, I want LB to index two sub levels, but to ignore (not show) the first sub level. In effect, I want LB to show the same thing I get if I do a Spotlight search on the main folder, using a phrase that appears in documents spread across the subfolders.

I hope this is clear.. Sorry if it is simple, but I haven't been able to make it work.
I know I can do a Spotlight search via LB, but I'd like to cut out that middleman.

This post didn't result in any progress, but I still would like to be able to do this.
