  1. Agreed. Thank you for the direction!
  2. On my mac (in terminal), hitting tab does a list of the folders, and it looks to be correct.
  3. I did, Error: could not resolve path `/Volumes/GDrive - JayRay'.
  4. Spotlight doesn't, no. It's an ExpanDrive mounted drive so I'm unsure of how it's mounted. I swear I got it to work at one point and now I can't seem to get it to work again. Perplexing.
  5. Got it. One last question. Why is it that I can't find any of the files listed in the /Volumes/GDrive folders I added above? Those folders contain bookmarks, video files, etc.. Things I've enabled in the file search, but they're just not coming up...
  6. Im starting to understand a little better now, thanks. 1. Any way to restrict applications results specifically to the "Applications" folder in my home root? I'd rather not see other apps in the system if they aren't located in that folder. See below
  7. Update: I was successfully able to remove all categories from spotlight by re-installing XCODE and siabling "Developer" from the spotlight categories. Which was the last one checked. Now spotlight shows nothing. As a consequence, Alfred now only shows Applications (which cannot be disabled). Update 2: I spoke too soon. Alfred is still showing me results from ~. Even though spotlight has zero results. I just disabled spotlight indexing for all files and rebuilt the index. I'm still getting results there too. Essentially, I'm trying to avoid spotlight and thus Alfred from finding files like below. I don't care about application generated files; they just clutter up my results.
  8. I'm a bit confused about how Alfred searches through my folders/files. In attempt to really understand what is being searched when I use "open" or " ' " when invoking Alfred, I removed ALL the folders in the Alfred search scope entirely. I even unchecked "Include Folders in Home." I'm now in the middle of re-indexing spotlight index just to really get a fresh index going. The problem is, when I invoke file searching, I'm still getting search results. Shouldn't I have entirely removed the scope altogether? Where is it searching? My first thought was it was searching through spotlight's index. If so; since it's already using spotlight and looking through my home folder, why even include the check box to "include home folder" in the Alfred options? This all started because I was trying to search for a file inside of a google drive folder; and it wasn't working.
  9. This is cool. I do lots of site wireframes/mockups and this will come in useful. Any way to change the amount of results it pulls in? For example, searching for "arrow" should render many many results, but only the top 10 are available.
  10. I am DYING for this ability. I use spaces/desktops extensively and it would make things so much easier! Pretty please!
  11. I'm on the public beta of High Sierra and I'm seeing input lag when typing into Alfred. Tried clearing preferences and re-installing. Could it have to do with the new file system? Update: Changed my Alfred theme from "Alfred Default" to "Alfred MacOS" and the lag went away. Seems to be related to graphic assets?
  12. @vitor Thank you for the help. I added a feature to split all text into paragraphs and I limited the "find" text selection feature to the original document/window/tab. I think it works rather well. Here's the final workflow, or at least as far as it works for me. Canceling can be done with a separate hotkey. I wanted to make it the same hotkey (to toggle off if no selection), but since the osascript is set to run sequentially, it'll run the pkill at the end which won't work. Here it is. I'm still new to both AS and Workflows, and so if you notice anything quirky with it feel free to let me know.
  13. @vitor That works! How do I cancel the commands that are queued up? For example, if I want to effectively stop the say commands and all subsequent commands? When I was using bash, I was doing a pkill.
  14. Apologies, but I wasn't aware you could open workflows in Terminal? Would you might walking me through that?
