  1. I tried both open & mdls: And it didn't work. Alfred troubleshooting thing always works all the time. Not sure what you mean with touch command, I guess `cat` contact content to clipboard. Then create a new .abcdp file with the clipped content. I have a feeling that maybe it's Alfred checking whether the contact is in default search scope may do something too. Thanks for the help @Andrew. Just wanted to note this in case someone else has similar issues and finds this thread as those solutions didn't work for me.
  2. Would it be possible to open source Alfred Metadata Tool? I am very curious to know what actually causes the act of inspecting a contact to be indexed properly by Alfred. So I can perhaps write a script to run it on all the 800+ contacts so all are indexed. I know this is a hacky approach but I don't have time to reinstall macOS from scratch (will do it when I get M2 mac machine). If it's not possible, I guess I can live with it until then. Thanks.
  3. I tried to select all contacts (I have 856) and drop them all at once into the Metadata Tool but it unsurprisingly only opens one contact so it didn't work. Don't want to go through the process of doing the above for each one of the 856 contacts so any solution to this would be very welcome.
  4. I see, thank you @Andrew Going to drop the only thing that worked for me so far, maybe it might give an idea of what's going on. Every time I drop a contact from here (where all contact metadata is kept): Into the Alfred Meta Viewer to inspect the contact. After that the contact starts to be found again. Example, not found: After inspecting contact with Alfred Metadata Tool and waiting ~ 5 seconds, the contact will be found and indexed correctly: Makes me thing this is some permission thing between Alfred an
  5. This line I had to add manually by inspecting file with the Viewer then copying it from it from there. I'd expect Alfred to fill in this line for me when I dropped `karabiner.md` file into this table view but nothing happened for me. That's why I assumed the file type was either `com.unknown.md` or `net.daring` but it was neither.
  6. Only one contact is being formatted correctly. Perhaps because I inspected it? Also despite showing system files, not all contacts are being found again. Previously that option fixed my issue of Alfred not returning all contacts.
  7. Okay I might be the unluckiest person or macOS hates me as I always get weird file system issues but indeed the file types of those files are not markdown but `dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a` as the metadata viewer showed: Might be something to look into though as when I did drop this file into here: The `dyn..` stuff wasn't added. I'd consider that a bug as the metadata viewer did recognize the file type as `dyn..`. This doesn't solve the contacts search issue though. Not sure what even went wrong there. File type seems ok:
  8. Get this when trying to search contacts: I reset Spotlight index and had it finish doing the indexing. Not sure what else I need to do. My situation is that my macOS got broken on latest Big Sur update. Had to restore from backup. And now I get this. Might be included to this but my file filter searches are also broke now. This file in ~/Dropbox/Write/knowledge: Is no longer being found using my file filter workflow that searches this folder for markdown files: I no longer hav
  9. Very appreciate that you still interact with me and try to help @deanishe. ♥️
  10. Okay I hate computers. So I ran `osascript -e 'tell application "Alfred 4" to run trigger "search wiki" in workflow "nikivi.mind" with argument ""'` with Alfred version 4.2.1 and I finally got a prompt to authorize it. I did. Then I installed latest 4.2.2 pre release and things magically work. If someone comes across this, it's apparently useful to downgrade and try the same thing again then upgrade again. [Admin note: Downgrading and upgrading Alfred again does not resolve macOS permissions issues. There's no correlation between downgrading and fixing this issue so we do not
  11. No, I get this when I run same commands in shell: ``` ~/.config/karabiner ❯ osascript -e 'tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine" to do script "open: Safari"' ~/.config/karabiner ❯ osascript -e 'tell application "Alfred 4" to run trigger "search wiki" in workflow "nikivi.mind" with argument ""' 31:99: execution error: Not authorized to send Apple events to Alfred 4. (-1743) ``` With this 4.4.1 version I run `osascript -e 'tell application "Alfred 4" to run trigger "search wiki" in workflow "nikivi.mind" with argument ""'` and I did get a prompt t
  12. I think it's because all the KM macros are still working and are called in the same way. Using osascript. Karabiner just calls osascript shell command. Makes me think that perhaps I need to add some new permission to Karabiner Elements. I think that karabiner user server implies that permission was granted. Although console implies logging, not calling into shell commands. Very confusing. Also I don't think its karabiner <> alfred interaction because its Alfred that starts breaking after updating to new version. Karabiner version is the same. And the only thing in the
  13. I am not, that's why I am confused. Don't know why it's failing. Apologize again for a wall of text, just my entire workflow relies on this stuff working so I went to a little panic mode (all my workflows are ran off external triggers, turns out using mac without Alfred is very painful). I downgraded and things work. Maybe someone knows an answer can reply. Would be very happy to hear it. ♥️
  14. I just downgraded by downloading .dmg from https://www.alfredapp.com, quitting Alfred and replacing the .app then starting Alfred again. I wonder if there is a list of versions somewhere one can download or you can only get latest one.
