  1. Please add edge support for indexing.
  2. I'm having a similar problem with Googe Drive stream. My Google drive contains the folowing files: -r-------- 0 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 370K Jan 1 1970 .VolumeIcon.icns drwx------ 5 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Apr 26 14:06 .Spotlight-V100/ d-wx------ 3 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K May 1 10:06 .TemporaryItems/ drwx------ 8 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Jun 26 17:51 Shared drives/ drwx------ 14 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Jun 26 17:51 My Drive/ drwx------ 3 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Jun 26 17:51 .Trashes/ drwx------ 4 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Jun 26 17:51 ./ drwx------ 3 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 4.0K Jun 26 17:51 .fseventsd/ drwxr-xr-x+ 71 rlommers LOCAL\Domain Users 2.2K Jun 27 07:11 ../ Now the problem is that evertything inside "My Drive" is being indexed perfectly and searchable through (latest) Alfred. Unfortunately all the files in the "Shared drives"-directory is NOT being indexed. I really don't get it. What could be the reason of this? It's "just" two directories right? why is the one being indexed and the other not? Even the "unintelligent" option doesn't fix this. For some reason Alfred (or spotlight?) doesn't know the "Shared drives" directory at all.
  3. Sorry, it's the section "Full disk access". Indeed, when I allowed Alfred full-disk-access, then Safari bookmarks will end-up in the searches.
  4. Where can find this section? I don't see the item "Application Data" inside "security & privacy" section (tab: privacy).
  5. I'm using lots of markdown files and it would be great if I could: select a markdown file in finder trigger Alfred select "convert file to PDF" And eventually end up with a converted markdown file to PDF on -for example- my desktop. Would something be possible? I have marked2 installed, but I don't think a marked2-export can be started form the console, right?
  6. This fixed it! So I did: Removed entry from user defined file types in Alfred Rebuild launch services with command below Add a markdown file (with extension .md) /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain user Thanks!!!
  7. Thanks for the info; what's the best way to create a new (empty) file on OSX?
  8. Thanks; I already did that. Please see attached screenshot. I also ran the Alfred Metadata tool, and the outcome of a file with extension .md is: Internal File Metadata ====================== Display Name: Clean install OSX.md Alt Names: File Type: dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a Comments: Keywords: Last Used: Raw mdls File Metadata ====================== _kMDItemOwnerUserID = 501 kMDItemContentCreationDate = 2016-06-30 19:49:29 +0000 kMDItemContentModificationDate = 2016-06-30 19:49:29 +0000 kMDItemContentType = "dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a" kMDItemContentTypeTree = ( "dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a", "public.data", "public.item" ) kMDItemDateAdded = 2016-06-30 19:49:34 +0000 kMDItemDisplayName = "Clean install OSX.md" kMDItemFSContentChangeDate = 2016-06-30 19:49:29 +0000 kMDItemFSCreationDate = 2016-06-30 19:49:29 +0000 kMDItemFSCreatorCode = "" kMDItemFSFinderFlags = 0 kMDItemFSHasCustomIcon = (null) kMDItemFSInvisible = 0 kMDItemFSIsExtensionHidden = 0 kMDItemFSIsStationery = (null) kMDItemFSLabel = 0 kMDItemFSName = "Clean install OSX.md" kMDItemFSNodeCount = (null) kMDItemFSOwnerGroupID = 20 kMDItemFSOwnerUserID = 501 kMDItemFSSize = 906 kMDItemFSTypeCode = "" kMDItemKind = "Visual Studio Code document" kMDItemLogicalSize = 906 kMDItemPhysicalSize = 4096 So what could be wrong? Indexes have already been re-build.
  9. I have tried a lot, but for some reason I cannot use Alfred to search for markdown files on ONE OF MY computers. So on my Macbook, everything works find, but on my iMac Alfred does not find .md files (I also tried .markdown extension). Can someone please point me in the right directory? Settings are the same on both Macs Spotlight settings are the same on both macs Have trie rebuilding index, also deleting .spotlight.v100 directory Still no results found on my iMac while searching for a file with markdown extension However, when I try to find the files with the Alfred "find" feature, everything works fine. Help!
