  1. Hey, I've been trying to convert this launchbar script into an Alfred Workflow. The script is meant to take the current selection of Alfred, and activate the window behind, open the "Go To Folder" dialogue, paste in the path and press enter. I got it working in the AppleScript Editor, but for some reason I can't get it to perform on through Alfred. It even opens up the "Go To Folder" dialogue but stops there each time. Do you guys have any ideas? on alfred_script(q) set filePath to POSIX file of q tell application "System Events" set theApplication to application processes whose frontmost is true set target to item 1 of theApplication set target to a reference to front window of target set target to a reference to front sheet of target delay 0.5 tell target to keystroke "g" using {command down, shift down} -- Activate goto field tell target try set value of text field 1 to filePath delay 0.5 key code 36 -- simulate pressing the Enter key end try end tell end tell end alfred_script
  2. Great to hear that I'm not the only one missing this feature. Would love to see it implemented! Is there anything we can do to help?
  3. David, I just wanted to thank you for this workflow, since it's something I've been looking for a long time. Replaced my Keyboard Maestro script instantly. /P
  4. I also noticed that worked. But it would be amazing to have a preference checkbox for searching in file navigation to always work like there was a "*" infront. I know it's a small thing, but for users coming from LaunchBar this would be lovely "glue" feature.
  5. Hey, I've been using the new v2 beta since it's launch. I've been impressed with the features and the possibilities and flexibility of the workflow system, it allowed me to replace TextExpander and Keyboard Maestro to a certain extent and I'm a big fan of less. But there is a feature I really miss from LauchBar when navigating the file system. Let's say I have these folders, and I'm navigating them in Alfred. /A Blue Sky Haze /Red River /Purple Haze I remember the folder I'm looking for had something to do with Haze, and I start writing it by pressing "H", it gives me an empty results. Since It's not word matching the actual folder names but checking if the folders there start with the letter "H". I'd love to keep the great abbreviation matching system that Alfred has also available when navigating through the file system with Alfred, as it would really make it easier navigating some larger folder and company servers when project numbers and such are involved? What do you guys think?
