Spotlight search in NC #1: scripted temporary panel

Post by JayB » Thu Apr 01, 2021 8:33 am

Is there a way to tell NC to create a temporary panel in the current panel and search for a specific text string with Spotlight? Something akin to AppleScript? E.g.:

Code: Select all

tell application "Nimble Commander" to spotlightsearch with search "foo"
If this isn't possible, are there any plans to implement ways for users to more tightly control NC with external scripts or apps?

You could always create a workaround and use Keyboard Maestro:

Nope, not supported. No plans to improve it either.
