Searching a single folder

I’d love to be able to search the contents of a single folder (where I’ve stored related documents or replicants). I can do this by opening the Search window and selecting the folder in the “Search in:” menu, but there are some issues with this:

  • sometimes I want to search multiple, separate folders at once
  • I have a complex, replicant-filled folder structure that can make finding folders difficult

Is there some script or other way to option-click on a folder name (or more than one) and have it (or them) automatically populate the “Search in” field of the Search window?

Or is there a better solution to this?

Many thanks!

Not in the Search window, but one possibility is to command-click several folders in the middle pane of three-pane view and use the “In Selection” option of the Find In Database box.
