Dear, all, As recent Alfred convert, I am enthusiastically exploring the options. One thing I cannot find out is how to run a WORKFLOW for the following use case: I am using Foxtrot Personal Search intensively to work with ~1M documents. To start a search I use Alfred. However, currently, I only trigger an existing AppleScript I created through an Alfred hotkey to open a search in FoxTrot. As a result, when I press the hotkey, AppleScript opens a non-Alfred window to provide the search field, which is then passed to the app. The AppleScript is as follows:
set FS to display dialog "Search for?" default answer ""
set query to text returned of FS tell application "FoxTrot Personal Search"
It would be great if I could use the default Alfred input window for this, but I don’t seem to be able to pass my search input to the app other than by using the AppleScript.
Can anyone please help me with a sample workflow? Thank you!
