Metadata is used by Spotlight to search for documents (see Quick Look & Spotlight). Spotlight searches the title and description of metadata entries in order to find a document and present it in the spotlight interface. Spotlight presents the document using the Quick Look plugin. In that way, Spotlight and Quick Look work in unison.

In order to get spotlight to function you must add keywords to either the title or description field in the Metadata inspector. For example, mentioning sprocket in the title (or in the description) will enable Spotlight to find the document when sprocket is searched for.

The Metadata inspector editor is shown below.


Title : The document title.

Description : The document description.

Apply : Apply the metadata and then when the document is saved the document becomes searchable by Spotlight (see Quick Look & Spotlight).
