I have the Spotlight plugin installed & enabled, but, for some reason, when I input my query & type "Get Spotlight Results" in the 2nd pane, it comes up blank. (see screenshots) This doesn't just apply to unit conversions either. I tried searching for an Apple note title & I got the same result. What am I doing wrong?

The Spotlight plug-in is really only able to search files and doesn’t support all the things you can type in the regular Spotlight interface.

I would expect this to work for Notes like it does for Mail messages and Contacts, but I can’t test it. Even the regular Spotlight interface isn’t giving me anything at the moment, and searching via QS just crashes it. 😭😂
