In normal finder window, I have set it to search in current folder by default.

However, when I want to open a file in the open file dialog, the search is still a global Mac search.

Is there anyway to limit it to search in the current folder like in normal finder?

  • Not sure what you mean by global search when you are talking about the open file dialog. Open file should start out in your home folder or last folder you accessed with the app. – jmh Sep 8 '18 at 18:06
  • @jmh well the question is regarding the search box in the open file dialog. I have the same issue and setting search to current folder in the finder options does not help. – Karl Pokus Sep 3 at 10:10
