are there any files/tutorials/videos explaining PF search syntax applicable to Find window (Spotlight mode)?
I get completely different result than the ones obtained in Finder.
For instance: if i search for "wordA wordB" (without quotes) most of the times I get no results since PF is (maybe) trying to find the string "wordA wordB" while in Finder the two terms are treated as separate words and spotlight searches for items containing wordA AND WordB.

I also saw that you can set the scope of the search (name, content, tag, etc) but what is missing is an "All" scope (PF search in any fields).
