Best file search overlay for Spotlight index?

Is there a tool that does uses Spotlight’s full text index but gives more options – i.e. a nice breakdown of fields for file type, boolean search, wildcards, etc.?

The classic tool for this is usually HoudahSpot. They offer a trial version.


It’s also available as part of SetApp.

Thanks for the reminder. I just installed it from Setapp. Have not used it for years!
