Note: This is still a 32 bit app, meaning you'll get a warning that this app is not ready for macOS High Sierra or Mojave. You can ignore it. I am working on a 64 bit rewrite which will become available here in a while. If you like to test the new version 2 as soon as it's available, please check "Include Beta & Preview versions" in FAF's Preferences.

What's new in 1.9.1

  • In some cases, version 1.9 did not find all items when searching an APFS volume. This has been fixed.
  • Fixes a rare crash when displaying results.

What's new in 1.9

  • New: macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) support for fast search on APFS formatted disks.
  • New: "Preview Grid" view shows larger icons. Helpful when looking for images.
  • New: Searching for plain text content in files (experimental, please give feedback).
  • New criteria "contains either of" and "ends in either of" for a simple logical or search operation. Now you can search for all kinds of images using the term [Name] [ends in either of] [.gif .png .jpg .jpeg .tif .tiff], for instance.
  • New: Shows contextual help at the bottom of the Find window.
  • New: Can search for User ID and Group ID numbers. This is an advanced feature - to get these options, hold down the Option (alt) key when clicking the leftmost popup menu.
  • Change: "Name contains" is now doing a slightly smarter search: If you enter "day one", all files are listed that contain both "day" and "one", such as "stones today". If you want the previous behavior where the spaces need to match as well, use "contains exactly" instead.
  • Change: "Copy Names" command in Tree view always inserts TAB characters for indentation.
  • Fix: Right-click menu on found items uses the correct system font on OS X Yosemite and later.
  • Fix: Expand & Collapse commands now work in the right-click menu on the results.

  • Fix: Quicklook can be used if more than one file is selected.
  • Fix: The search field always offers all types (Name, Kind, Dates, Size, Path), even if they aren't shown as a column.
  • Numerous small usability fixes.
