  1. Thanks vitor, I am now using a "Run NSAppleScript" workflow command with the following content and it works fine: on alfred_script(q) tell application "System Events" keystroke "q" using {control down, command down} end tell end alfred_script
  2. It would be great if you could still supply the link to the workaround script here for people still using Alfred 2 (like myself).
  3. I am also missing the feature to exclude all media that is in the iTunes "Audiobooks" section fom Alfred's mini player.
  4. Thanks Andrew, I deleted and rebuild the OS X metadata but it did not help. However, I found a much simpler demonstration of what appears to be the problem: As stated above, I have a workflow with a File FIlter that I can trigger by the keyword "bo". Now, if I search for something like this: "bo e e e e e e e" it should be the same as searching for "bo e" BUT: If I type "bo e e e " (please note the final space at the end) then the result depends on my typing speed: if I pause a bit after the last "e" before typing the final space, the result always looks good, but if the last "e" is quickly followed by the space, the result is empty. I can easily reproduce this, but I suspect that you may need a few of files in the search scope to trigger this.
  5. Hi, I have an issue with a simple File Filter workflow: The workflow in question is just a File Filter attached to an Open File action. I trigger the File Filter search by a keyword "bo", then I type in two search terms ("x", "y"): bo x y If I do this at an even moderate speed, the search result is often empty. However, if I backspace up to right after the "x", then again type "<space>y", the result comes up just fine. The faster I type, the more likely the result is empty. The shorter the search terms (= the more matches), the more likely the result is empty. The File Filter uses the following options: Basic Setup: - with space: off - file types: 5 types, com.adobe.pdf, com.lizardtech.djvu, dyn.ah...cre, dyn.ah...dr (Amazon files), org.idpf.epub-container Search Scope: - 4 folders in my home dir Advanced: - date range: any date - fields: kMDitemDisplayName [ ] {query} [x] [x] kMDitemFinderComment [ ] {query} [x] [x] - accuracy [x] Anchor searches which are not word based I am running OSX 10.8.5 with Alfred 2.1.1 Thanks for looking into this!

  6. Sure, that would be possible, but it would mean to duplicate code: in the example above, suppose you want to do a some processing on the items, regradless of the destination being "home" or "work".
  7. Hi, I can not find a way to access the actual keyword entered if a workflow is triggered by a keyword input. I can only get the arguments via {query}. Getting the argument would allow to handle multiple keyword commands in a single script. For a simple example, suppose I want to process and then add items to either a "work" and "home" folder. Currently, unless I want to duplicate my script, I can use a single keywork "add" and the must specify the destination as the first argument, for example: "add h item1 item2" (to add items to "home" folder) "add w item1 item2! (to add items to "work" folder) But if it was possible to access the keyword from a query I could use "addh item1 item2" (to add items to "home" folder) "addw item1 item2! (to add items to "work" folder) Any throught or ideas? Cheers, Olaf
  8. I also found this irritating though I think it is consistent behavior (you create a workflow object and also have selected the option to immediately show the config sheet for newly created objects - found in the workflow panes preferences).
  9. Hi, most of the more sophisticated workflows rely on additional scripts in the workflow folder, which is not always obvious. Therefore, I would like to suggest to add a row of icons to the buttom of the workflow edit pane, listing all the additional files found in the workflow folder and allowing to open these files from there. I am aware that there is already a button in some of the workflow actions to open the workflow folder in the Finder, as well as a context menu item for that. Cheers, Olaf
