  1. Here's a different take: I'd sometimes like to open files or folders in a new tab (my default setting for finder), other times in a new WINDOW. Is there a way to create a command for the latter specifically WHEN the finder default is set to tabs only? tx
  2. do you mean this? File Navigation Use Alfred to navigate through your Mac's file system. This is a great way to quickly make your way through folders without having to use the mouse. To start, type: / (slash) to take you to the root folder on your Mac, or ~ (tilde) to go to your user directory. If I could get a shortcut into a given directory like this: Macintosh HD⁩ ▸ ⁨Users⁩ ▸ ⁨jiporter⁩ ▸ ⁨Box Sync⁩ ▸ ⁨JP-PDFs⁩ ▸ ⁨Classics⁩ ▸ ⁨Literature⁩ ▸ ⁨Homer⁩ ▸ ⁨Homer-Reception⁩ ▸ ⁨I. Antiquity⁩ I might consider it, though I ca
  3. THanks. I 've seen that document page. It isn't very thorough. I don't know enough to program, but did copy the existing example of a Dynamic File Search, which included a JSON element, so I just replicated that in order to drill one level deeper into the file structure (trying as I mentioned to find folders inside of folders). I haven't tried deleted the second JSON utility (see chart above) because it seems to be working, more or less. The trouble is that I have a zillion folders; keeping track of their names is nigh impossible. But I do know that they have a relative location, a
  4. OK. I'll just assume that connections aren't logical in some places as opposed to others. Is there any documentation on the nature of connections in workflows, as well as why JSON utilities are needed at some points and not at others? Just trying to learn how workflows work. tx
  5. Yes, I know. Clicking on these lines does not always produce the desired option. Some connecting lines do, others don't. That is what is so puzzling.
  6. Is there a way to configure a connection, eg the last one to "Reveal in Finder" by adding an option key command? It's not letting me do this. Trying to duplicate this example of a connection
  7. ike this? (actually, it's "Judaism" I am looking for). So "ff" followed by "Freud" → return → "Judaism" takes me there. I'm not sure if there aren't redundant objects here.
  8. OK, I now know how to connect things. But I'm not able to extend the search from a folder level to a sub level
  9. also trying to understand how to extend (modify) the existing example workflow; I think I need to copy and paste, but can't seem to get the connections to go; and I really don't get how many levels to ask for (sub-folder levels); I'd like that to be dynamic, so that I can stop at any point and continue if needed till I reach the desired endpoint.
  10. Thanks, but that is exactly my question: how can I do this—and on the fly (since I don't always want to go down that particular directory)
  11. Thanks. I use both, but what I want to do is to find a file within a folder within a folder (eg folder "PDFs", containing folder "Freud", containing Folder "Jews", containing a file X). How do I drill down using either workflow? All I get after "ff" [plugging in the relevant parent, ie Freud] is "Find Files in a specific folder" (asking for the name of a file, not folder).
