I can type a search word into Spotlight. It will show results. I then open let's say an Appleworks text document from that search. Then I close that document and retry the same search: Now that same document will not show up in the search results for that exact word and it WILL NEVER show up again in search results. In other words after a file has been found and opened in search once , it will never sppear in search results again for the same word.
If you have an idea how to fix this please tell me. Thank you
I figured it out: these were .cwk files from the old Apple Works. So Spotlight was unable to search the text of the files. Apple really should have allowed Spotlight to search the text of old .cwk files, if it is feasible. Thanks
