Hello, for some time now, I have been having a problem searching for files in Dreamweaver.  Usually, I just suck it up and look for the files line-by-line.  However, this website is getting larger and it is getting too difficult to do that.  

Whatever name I type, Dreamweaver returns the message "No Matches Found", even when I am looking directly at the match.  Am I searching wrong or is this a bug in Dreamweaver?  Here is a video I made of the search issue I am having.  Thank you!

If I recall correctly, if your Mac isn't set to index the folder that your sites are in (for example, when they reside inside a local server installation) nothing will show up in that search field.

Even though it looks like part of the Files Window, it's really just a Mac Spotlight search field the dev guys tacked into the Files window, not really part of DW's search functionality.

You should be able to force your Mac to index the folder your sites are in and it should then find the files.

I think, it's been a very long time since I used a Mac.
