I have moved from MacOS to elementary OS. One thing I miss is the ability to search within directories.

Is it possible to do so, I don't seem to be finding anything when searching the web. The only thing I have found is this answer, but I would like to stick with Slingshot if possible?

No Slingshot does not search files or folders. It searches apps, actions, and settings
