If you open TextEdit and add some random text to it and then add one picture it will convert the document from RTF to RTFD because now it has an image.
As soon as it’s an RTFD file spotlight can never find the contents inside of it. Before the image was added and was just a plain RTF document spotlight could find things for days. But that one little image makes it forget everything.
I get that RTFD is actually a folder but inside that folder is a text file that should be searchable if you ask me but it’s not.
I can’t be the only one in the world affected by this? And I don’t understand why it’s even an issue.
