I'm writing a plugin for SketchUp that lives in SketchUp's plugins folder in the system Library. Even when I put an alias of the plugins folder out on the desktop, Spotlight can't seem to find it (my plugin file). I've learned the trick of using the option key to reveal the Library folder in the Go menu, but why does the file remain 'hidden' from Spotlight after I've drug an alias of its folder out to the desktop?
I also tried using Terminal to patch Hidden to NoHidden without reliable results. Yuck.
Thanks for any help you can offer,
