IIRC (I turned off Spotlight years ago; got tired of the constant disk
thrashing), LiveCode scripts are automatically indexed by Spotlight, but
not field content.
I have no idea why that's how it is; seems a bit backwards to me, but
maybe there's a reason for it.
Anyone know offhand if there's an RQCC request for indexing fields
