  1. @Vero Good afternoon (your time), you bloody genius! Unchecking "Use Spotlight metadata for searching contacts" has resolved the issue. Curiously, do you have any idea why showing Contacts in Alfred has worked all these years that I've been using it, and why it would suddenly stop? Previous to today, I'd never touched the "Use Spotlight metadata for searching contacts" box. Ta!
  2. Hi smart people, When I search and find contact in Alfred (v3.7), it launches Contacts instead of showing it in Alfred like it used to. I'm running 10.14.1 (Mojave), and have Accessibility, Contacts and Full Disk Access checked/allowed in Privacy under Security & Privacy. Within Alfred, "Open Contacts in Alfred" is checked under Contacts and Default Results. Any help in resolving this will be appreciated! Thanks!
  3. Thanks Vero! I really appreciate the info.
  4. Awesome! I just learned a few things. I wasn't familiar with the mdls command, and now I am. Sweet. I'll poke around in the File Filter shortly, to get a better understanding of what it does. Thanks again!
  5. I checked it out a while ago, and unfortunately not much of it made sense to me, and I used to code. ? Maybe I need video instructions, with lots of explanations. ? I'll dive into it again. Thanks!
  6. Dude, No way! You just made this for me!? You're AWESOME. Thank you so much. It works perfectly. I was just looking at the script and trying to understand exactly what and how it works, but it's not making sense to me exactly. I'd love to be able to write my own workflows.
  7. Hi Deanishe, I saw your workflow earlier when I searched the topic, before posting, and though about downloading it. Thanks, I'll check it out.
  8. Hi all, Spotlight has the ability to not only search for the title of a Safari bookmark, but also the content. Is there a way to do this in Alfred3? What I mean by this is lets say that I've titled my bookmark "A3" and the content is "https://www.alfredapp.com". I'd like to be able to search for "alfred", and get a hit for "https://www.alfredapp.com" in bookmarks, as opposed to having to remember the name of the title. Thanks.
  9. Thank you Vero. I'll check it out, and be sure to raise my hand in "Workflow Help & Questions", when I need assistance.
  10. Hi Vero, I have the Powerpack, and would welcome the knowledge to be able to write my own filters, that would allow me to do as you described, and more. Please point me towards this information. Thanks!
  11. Hi all, Is there a way to search the contents of all indexed documents for a phrase, as opposed to just the documents that contain the words. For instance, I'd like to search for all documents that contain the phrase "find these words", as opposed to all document that just contains the words anywhere in the document. "find w/1 these w/1 words" vs find AND these AND words. I tried doing 'in "find these words"', but the resulted in a google search. I know that this can be done in Spotlight, and I hope that I can do in Alfred3. Thanks!
  12. Also, can an action be taken on a file in Recent Documents? For instance, if I type Preview, and then select Recent Documents, can I take an Action on one of those items? Perhaps Mail it or Move it? If so, how to I activate the options for the actions? Normally I'd hit Tab or Fn to get the Actions for an item, but this doesn't work for Recent Documents. I can't even get previews to work on Recent Documents by pressing the Shift key. Am I missing something?
  13. Hi there, Is there a way to do a "Find" or "In" on a particular volume or folder only? For instance, if I were interested in searching my Dropbox folder only, for a file named (Find) or that contained the words (In) "Blue Sky". Can this be done? Also, can an action be taken on a file in Recent Documents? For instance, if I type Preview, and then select Recent Documents, can I take an Action on one of those items? Perhaps Mail it or Move it? If so, how to I activate the options for the actions? Normally I'd hit Tab or Fn to get the Actions for an item, but this doesn't work for Recent Documents. Am I not doing something right? Thanks! Jeff
