Forum Question: Search criteria for Smart folders

I’m using Smart Folders to search for “recent documents”. IS there a way to setup the search criteria to show multiple types of documents in the “recent documents” search folder?? Right now it seems I can only have one type of document in the search criteria. Right now I have [Name ends with “doc”]. How do I have the search criteria for different document types like PDF, TXT, etc. end up in one folder??

    When you go to add criteria to the Smart Folder definition, hold the option key down before pressing the little + button. This allows you to create a group of rules and define whether the folder should show items based on any, all or none of the rules.
