Since a few weeks (I believe after updating Alfred) I have a major issue with searching with Alfred.
In the past Alfred used to learn my search patterns so after using it for a while it often was enough to simply type the first one or two letters of an item for Alfred to list search results in most used order.
Items I would search and use a lot would always be at the very top of the list.
This feature is broken for me and makes the Alfred search pretty much useless to me now :-(
I do download regularly Youtube videos to watch later when on the road and not having a internet connection.
For this I use a Alfred Workflow "DownVid".
To download a Youtube video I would simply:
- copy the web URL to the clipboard
- invoke Alfred
- type "DV" (often just typing "D" would have sufficed)
… and Alfred would list search results
As I would use this workflow invoked by typing "D" or "DV" much more often then any other search starting with the letter D, Alfred would place the DownVid workflow right at the very top of the list, so I only would have to hit "ENTER" to start the workflow.
Since the search is broken, this workflow is listed way down a list of to me completely useless search results.
Among them is the "iDVD.app" or the "DVDPlayer.app" which I both never, ever even once have searched for or opened :-(
I have scoured the Alfred preferences, have reset Alfred, have deleted the Alfred cache, have repaired permissions, have rebuilt spotlight indexes (using Onyx), … all to no avail.
At current Alfred is useless to me as every search I attempt takes so much longer time and I keep making mistakes, accidentally selecting items I do not want.
Please help (I hope it is just one single silly setting I am missing)!
