Ashlar-Vellum Graphite Plugs in to Spotlight's Power on Mac OS X Tiger.
Tiger's Spotlight, combined with Graphite's acclaimed Vellum(R) interface, offers an unparalleled level of ease-of-use in the computer-aided design world. Robert Bou, President of Ashlar-Vellum says, "We're proud to be the first CAD company to release a plug-in for Apple's new Spotlight technology, enabling 'deep-search' capabilities within our files. For 15 years Ashlar-Vellum and Apple have shared a similar philosophy, striving to enhance the bond between users and their creativity through the near-transparent use of technology."
"The Spotlight feature in Tiger let's a user instantly find anything anywhere on their Mac and that will change the way people use their computers," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "The Graphite Spotlight plug-in makes excellent use of Tiger innovation to quickly index files and improve workflow."
According to Apple, OS X Tiger's Spotlight feature blazes through files and applications, offering results as soon as the first letter is typed. The Graphite plug-in allows Spotlight to index the content of Graphite files transparently from inside, not just the file name. It extracts all the text in a Graphite file and places it in a block of searchable text, speeding file location.
