File Filter and custom subtitle

Hello sirs,

it would be useful to have an ability to set the subtitle for file filter results.

 

Now, the file filter result shows Subject and URL for each item.

 

For some usage (emails, photos, music, ...) it would be useful to show creation date/size/kind/sender address (generally other kMD attributes) instead as a subtitle...

 

I could do something similar using xml filter and parsing mdfind results, but the overhead will make it probably really slow.

 

Regards,

Jan

mdfind definitely does slow things down a good bit. I have a few workflows that attempt to do these sort of things and they are laggy... I made one for searching Mail.app where it would show sender and such in the subtitle.
