Splendid text search tool. Lightning fast, very stable, and incredibly useful for finding text and phrases inside of many file types. The UI could be more graphical to improve ease of use (for example, there is no ribbon as found in MS Word or the like). But that's just a quibble. If you're looking for a text search tool, this is the only one you will ever need.
Needs more improvement and searching ability.
Having moved to a Mac platform, I was caught needing a file search and preview capability to help me fill out RFIs and RFPs. DocFetcher to the rescue! Does exactly what I need quickly and easily. Would love to have some keyboard shortcuts to be able to jump to different windows. Thanks for a great utility!!!
