I tried to find something in help about this, and maybe I'm overlooking something obvious, but I don't want to tap buttons and menus all afternoon, so can someone tell me how you pull up a list of the folders that FT Personal is set to index?

FoxTrot help documentation appears to be an afterthough, and I think I would have had to poke around there forever to find an answer too. Their help section isn't even searchable? Am I right?

Holy cow -- either no one knows, or it can't be done! I'm kind of flabbergasted. How can a search app not have a way to disclose the scope of your search? I think I'll put of buyion Pro till forever.

Hello,

We overlooked your message as the answer seemed self-evident to us that this was already resolved, which obviously was a mistake:

In FoxTrot Personal, designate the list of folders to be indexed in the Preferences dialog, Files pane.
