I have noticed that the Finder's Recent Smart Search Folder doesn't show several type of 'app document' file.
The same is true if I create a new Smart Folder with the criterion set to
Kind = Document.
(You can sort through the results by Kind in a List View)
For instance: Affinity Suite documents, such as
.afdesign are not included.
Omnigraffle and OmniOutliner files are included.
Files from other apps, such as Finale (
.musx) and Dorico (
.dorico) are not included.
If I change the search criteria to
Kind = Other: Affinity, then I get the Affinity documents, so it's not like Spotlight hasn't indexed them.
Does anyone know on what basis Spotlight considers a file to be a document?
These 'missing files' are the native document format for these apps, so they are listed in the apps' Info.plist, under
