FoxTrot Search 7.5.1b1 builds are now available for public beta testing from our downloads page.

Please do try these stable builds and report back using the "Send a message to FoxTrot support" in the application's help menu at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,

The FoxTrot-search team at CTM Development

Miscellaneous improvements

- When the “by location” categorizer (categorize by path) was used in “view as columns” mode, there was no tooltip shown upon hovering over a truncated path; and truncated paths were incorrectly displayed, with no “…” indicator.
- File types for which no Spotlight metadata importer is installed, but for which an application properly defines a Uniform Type Identifier, are no longer categorized as “other documents”; for example, .mkv files should now be categorized as “video”.
- Searching did not work correctly when the search sources list was collapsed (i.e. when the “My Computer” disclosure triangle is toggled off).
- Document excerpts are now more relevant, as their length is adjusted according to the layout of the search results list. Hidden preferences have been added to further control their length.

Bug fixes

- Fixed a possible crash in the “Recommend FoxTrot” window, when closing the window immediately.
- Fixed a rare crash when displaying PDF documents that contain invalid Unicode characters.
