Answer to one of your questions:
"I would like to see X1 index and search image files such as PDF (Image), TIFF, TIF, JPG, JPEG, BMP and PaperPort MAX
formats like this program."


***You can make a customized X1 Search (something like a Bookmark) by entering something like this into the [File_Search]:

Add into the "Type" search field something like as below:

pdf= OR tiff= OR tif= OR jpg= OR bmp= OR max=

and then you can save this customized search by clicking on the "Save_As" button on the Results_Pane.
hope this helps!


(i'm not sure if X1 supports PaperPort MAX. if it doesn't, you can try tell X1 to index file content for *.MAX file suffix into X1, and hopefully this will work.

image file metadata

It would be most helpful if X1 could index image file metadata (e.g., NTFS, Adobe).

Hi,

X1 is a search utility and you would have to use a 3rd party product to perform any file conversion.

Although a really long intro, I add my voice to the request to search image file content.

Thanks,
