Marta 0.4.2 is here, and I’m excited to tell you about the new features!
I hope you’re aware of what Spotlight is, and I don’t need to say anything about how it increases your productivity. I just say it is now seamlessly integrated into Marta.
There are two versions of the action: Look up (
⌘P) searches globally, while Look up here (
⌘⌥P) limits results to the current directory contents.By default, it displays all indexed directory whose name is matched by the prefix. If you want more, there’re a number of query prefixes:
||Include files in search results|
||Search by a substring (instead of a prefix)|
||Match by a prefix (if you enabled substring search by default)|
||Search in a document title|
||Search in a document author metadata|
||Search in a file contents|
For example, if you want to search music by BEGIN (one of my favorite bands from Okinawa) just search for
a:begin. Look up also supports path search:
f:frameworks/appkit will display you “appkit*” files inside a Frameworks/ directory.
From time to time I get questions like “How to open the preferences?” or “Is there any way to see all hotkeys?” I understand that lots of users just don’t read the documentation. It’s ok, niether I do it 😄. But I made a small tutorial, and I think it would be helpful for the first-time users.
If you already use Marta, you can run the Tutorial action to see how it looks like.
Right click now opens a context menu. It’s the very basic feature, and I really happy it’s done now, as it was an another obstacle to the release.
