macosxhints - 10.4: Limit a Smart Folder search to a specific folder

macosxhints - 10.4: Easily limit a Smart Folder to a specific folder
The solution? First navigate to the folder to which you want to limit the search. Hit Command-F, or in the menu, go to File -> Find. The "tab bar" at the top of the search criteria window now shows the folder you are currently in as one of the options. Select it, and then you can (as always) specify the other search criteria to your liking. Hit the Save button, and you now have a Smart Folder restricted to a specific folder (and its sub-folders).
