Question: Spotlight bug report for Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4

I just upgraded to OS High Sierra and realized two annoying bugs or missing features I had not before.


Both are related to the Spotlight.


Issue 1:

Before it was possible to mark and copy values from the Spotlight preview, which saved me a lot of time in my every day business. Now it's not or only buggy possible.


How to reproduce:


1. Place a .txt/.pdf file anywhere on your Mac

2. Search for the filename with Spotlight

3. Try to mark something by clicking in the preview area


Same behavoir with e-mail contents!


Excepted result (as before on High Sierra):

Double click on a word highlight it as selected and enables me to copy by CMD + C.

Dribble click on a line highlight it as selected and enables me to copy by CMD + C.


Actual result:

Double click on a word DON'T highlight the word and it's not copyable by CMD + C.

Dribble click on a line DON'T highlight the it as selected and enables me to copy by CMD + C.


Issue 2:

Copy a math result or text from Spotlight input field now also is copying the style of the Spotlight window.


1. Type in Spotlight 21+21

2. Copy the line from the input field

3. Open a App like Apple Mail or Pages where style is relevant

4. Create a new Mail/File

5. Paste clipboard


Excepted result (as before on High Sierra):

No style is adapted. Font is same like all other text in the specific area of the document


Actual result:

Style is adapted and massive min. 30px Spotlight text pasted.

Thanks, I am aware of that.


I am not a registered Developer and don't want to be one.

Additionally the feedback form is asking for detailed information, but do not allow acceptable limit to provide that detailed feedback. Not really Apple-like smart.


So I wrote down the full feedback here and provided it as separate information to the Apple team by chat.

Let's call it bypassing the bottle-neck. ;-)


Got already a feedback from Apple and an appointment for a call.

Why ever this is required. :-)


If some other users could confirm the issues I described here, I would appreciate a feedback in this thread.


Anyways, thanks for your reply Kappy!
