When I open a search, it defaults to searching everywhere, and the same when I try to create a smart folder. How do I create a smart folder that only searches one folder (and all of its subfolders)?

 

Thanks

 

(Side note: Why, below this window, does it say "You must choose a community" and then only give you the options of 10.3 or earlier, 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6? I'm using 10.8 which is not an option.)

    You can't. You need to click on the folder's name to limit the search to that folder.

    It says Submit my question to the community and offers these, among others:

    Looks like a link I followed from Google landed me in the wrong forum (10.6) and the question got moved to here.

    Level 2 and above responders can report posts and one option is to relocate them to an appropriate forum (ML, in this instance), which I did.
