    App not recognized in Applications folder

    The Privacy tab back-and-forth dragging seems to have solved this issue. Thank you very much for your help!

    App not recognized in Applications folder

    When I drop the file on the Metadata Tool I get this: /Applications/DaVinci Resolve/DaVinci Resolve.app Internal File Metadata ====================== Display Name: Alt Names: File Type: Comments: Keywords: Last Used: Raw mdls File Metadata ====================== If I prefix the search with "open" then Alfred opens the enclosing folder (which is the same name as the app, which may be the problem here).

    App not recognized in Applications folder

    Hello, Weird thing, using Mojave 10.14.1 (not sure if it happens in High Sierra or previous versions), Alfred 3.7 [938], easy and consistently replicatable: Alfred only recognizes two of the three apps in the "DaVinci Resolve" folder, which is the default folder created by that application inside the "Applications" folder. The problem remains even if I manually add the "DaVinci Resolve" folder to the Search Scope list in Preferences. Thanks for your help.

    Alfred waiting for external disk to spin up

    OK thanks, I'll see what I can dig up there and post back if I find anything meaningful...

    Alfred waiting for external disk to spin up

    I've created another user but, as things happen, I forgot to switch... So I had one more go with my regular account after changing the following settings in System Preferences : Energy Saver : Turn display off after "never" & Security and Privacy : disabled "required password" after sleep. I then left the computer idle for an hour or so. Came back, the disks weren't spinning, launch Alfred and everything was fine, no spin-ups or anything when launching applications. So either (1) creating a second user magically fixed things (not likely) or (2) the spin-up only happens in real-world scenarios (i.e. in the middle of work with a dozen apps running) which would be very difficult to diagnose. Is there a log file or something I could look at which updates whenever Alfred is launched? Thanks a lot for your ongoing support.

    Alfred waiting for external disk to spin up

    Not that I know of. I have two drives, A & C, attached via Thunderbolt. Each is divided into two partitions, A1, A2, C1, C2. In Spotlight Preferences I have excluded volumes A1 & C1 (A1 is data I never need to search, C1 is a Time Machine volume). I could try excluding the other volumes, but I don't know how it could help — in Alfred I only have "Preferences" and "Contacts" ticked in the Essentials category, and nothing in the Extras. The only other "system" link to the external volumes is the iTunes Media Folder which resides on A2, but it is not symlinked, it's just the "iTunes Media folder location" in iTunes. The library itself (.itl etc) is on the internal drive. And anyway this problem happens even when iTunes isn't running. I've even clicked the "Reset" on the search scope just to make sure, although it didn't modify anything in the list. Can't think of anything else.

    Alfred waiting for external disk to spin up

    The only workflow I have is setting Sound Output via AppleScript with a few keyboard strokes, nothing search-related. The script only does this: on alfred_script(q) set asrc to "Focal XS Book Wireless" as text -- display dialog "src is: " & asrc display notification with title "Focal Wireless" tell application "System Preferences" reveal anchor "output" of pane id "com.apple.preference.sound" activate tell application "System Events" tell process "System Preferences" select (row 1 of table 1 of scroll area 1 of tab group 1 of window "Sound" whose value of text field 1 is asrc) end tell end tell quit end tell end alfred_script I'm using pretty much a vanilla install of Alfred and haven't done anything really fancy with it yet.

    Alfred waiting for external disk to spin up

    I've been at it several times, unchecked the "eject" option in Preferences and selected the suggest option below. There are no external drives in the search scope, but they are still spinning up every time I launch Alfred. Any other ideas? Thanks.
