It could be using the Finder Preferences..
The default is "Search This Mac"

You can change it.

Yea, i tried that, but it doesn't affect the import audio pro tools search :-(

its actually a nightmare if you are doing a sfx job!! - the workspace window within pro tools is just crazy crazy slow!

I set all of my Macs Finder prefs to "Search folder" instead of "This Mac". I find it really annoying that Pro Tools doesn't honor my preference. I have different folders of sfx for different customers due to licensing and this behavior of PT is far from optimal.

Avid, please fix this or give us an option in the PT prefs.
