The help section says when using low level search you can also save a search which will be saved in the "Search For" section of sidebar per the following.

Low level search

"This tool allows you to search any volume (including a network volume) regardless of the fact if it was indexed by Spotlight or not. Low Level Search might be especially useful when working with multiple external volumes and/or network volumes. The tool has an ability to save searches, which can be then put as Smart Folders into the Sidebar section “Search for."

There does not seem anyway to do this as saved function is greyed out when using low level search

    Hi there,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    I appreciate reporting this to us. Could you please specify which article stated this?  At this moment being, we have removed such feature from Low level search since it is the old style search.

    Best Regards,

    Mary,

    You should really know what's in your manual, ...

    In the Pathfinder App go to Pathfinder Help,
    Then click on Search and then Low Level Search!!!!!

    Hi there,

    I appreciate the clarification. The reason I have asked is that we also have older manual online, thus, just wanted to doublecheck the information. I'll pass the feedback to the responsible for manual person, so we can adjust the information.
