Good day.

It has been quite a while since there was a spike of activity.
Is everything Ok?

Just checking.

Cheers.

Hi Don!

Everything is fine, I'm deep in a process of refactoring Files' internals.
That damn "panelize" ("feed to panel" etc) button requires some hundreds kilobytes of source code to be changed or written from scratch.
But after this will be done - search results may be used as a regular folder and maybe some "Temporary Panel" will appear.
Also I think it's feasible to add support for Finder's Smart Folder, which uses Spotlight search as a source.

For some demonstration of what is going on - here's a screenshot with search results ( "*.m4a" mask resulting with 27k entries ) shown as a regular panel.

Mike.

Glad to hear.

I understand how it happens - things just from nowhere and all at the same time.

Thank you for the screenshot - looks great promising.

Cheers.
