  1. This is a great workflow 🙏. I use it all the time, but it fails sometimes, I think, because Alfred has been updated, which makes macOS want to de-authorise the workflow. The solution is given here [https://github.com/drgrib/alfred-bear#authorize-all-executables]. You use CLI to go to the workflow and run "xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine cmd" to authorise it again. Then searching works. ✅ It's a few steps so I thought that it would be worth streamlining. So far, I've just been selecting one of the shell lines, below, from a Bear note and using PopClip to run it in iTerm. It would probably be more convenient to run in Alfred (Shortcuts, Keyboard Maestro, etc) Version 1 # This changes directory & runs the authorisation in one line. # If you want to use it, replace XXX with your Username. cd /Users/XXX/Library/CloudStorage/Dropbox/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.6FC9E059-46E3-4200-90F2-745362247D62 && xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine cmd Version 2 # The problem is that if you have Macs with different User names (I do), the path will be wrong. # This version sets a variable to the current User account and replaces that bit of the path, so cd-ing should work anywhere. # If you want to use it, it should work as is. current_user=$(id -un) && cd "/Users/$current_user/Library/CloudStorage/Dropbox/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.6FC9E059-46E3-4200-90F2-745362247D62" && xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine cmd
  2. Hi Rhyd, I've been following your installation steps but fail at finding the Omnifocus database path with *find-of-db*. So *npm install -g alfred-search-omnifocus*, and moving from zsh to bash, looks like things were going well; database path finding, not so well. Do you have any idea what I'm messing up, here? I don't know if this is useful, but here's what my CLI says ↓. bash-3.2$ node -v v19.9.0 bash-3.2$ find-of-db bash: find-of-db: command not found bash-3.2$ TIA, Jasper
  3. I've been looking at this after setting-up Syncing on a new, work iMac via Dropbox, and failing to remember what I'd done several years ago on my home ('primary') Mac. The Alfred.alfredpreferences old Date Modified confused me too. But, if I right click and 'Show Package Contents', I see ~½ dozen folders with the 'workflows' folder being updated after creating a test workflow from Alfred. So this should be syncable on my work iMac now🤞
