smart folder operators (any/all/none)

I'm sure this is a trivial question and I'm just missing something obvious...but how do I insert the "any/all/none of the following are true" when editing a smart folder? I'm been looking at the options for 10 minutes and I can't see how to add them.

    Do you mean nesting them or just adding another search criteria? Click the + button to add one. Hold down the Option key and click the button to nest one. See my post in this thread from a couple years ago for more info and screenshots:

    Please let me know how it goes. :)

    Yes, I meant nesting -- didn't know that you have to hold down Option to be able to do that. Thanks!

    It is my pleasure to help! It is a "standard" feature in Finder, iTunes, and more. You can use the "hold Option key" trick to nest Smart Folder and Smart Playlist criteria there as well. :)
