Software for more 'custom' spotlight searches

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I have been wondering for a while if software exists to do a more 'thorough' search.

What I'm wanting to do is to be able to hit a keyboard shortcut, then to type in a name of a file then for files containing said search phrase.

The catch is, I want it to only search on one directory and only search for one file type (*.pages files)

i'd then like another keyboard shortcut, where it searches in the same directory, but only for *pdf files or it could all be done in one window but show only pages and pdf files but separate them out like spotlight does!

I was hoping this would be somehow built into OSX but it doesn?t appear to be.

Does anyone know if theres anything out there that lets me do this ?
