  1. Thanks for the reply Andrew. Unfortunately I don’t have a clear recollection of when Alfred’s sort order for bookmark results stopped working for me. It’s been this way for months. I cleared data (history/cache?) losing my other preferred top items history (apps, etc.) a couple of months ago but it did not resolve the bookmark ordering issue for me. I can’t remember exactly when everything went sideways for me (sorry, not helpful I know). I remember the new caching and the reading list results but I could live with it. I switched to Chrome as
  2. I'm sure there's a technical reason why Alfred changed the way it handles bookmarks in searches, but the new method is a significant regression for me. Previously I could type the partial name or domain of a bookmark and the relevant Safari and Chrome bookmarks would display with the most used one as first item. You could force first item by re-running the query and selecting the desired item a few times. 1) Now Safari bookmarks are always listed first even though I use the Chrome bookmark more often. Chrome is set as the default system browser, so it makes no sense fo
  3. Thanks Carlos, but I found the issue. Long story short: I had the defaults (all) for escaping and the escaped path string was stopping the script from executing. Unchecking the escape options made the workflow work as intended. Long version: My keyword test input was only working because I had didn't use a real path with forward slashes, etc. When I used the copy clipboard test results from the File Filter as the input for the keyword (e.g. /Volumes/Data SSD/Downloads/!Sorted/!Icons/test icon-ai.zip), it failed as well. Again the first line of the script is a test notification, so I know t
  4. Thanks for the feedback, but the new code only works when triggered by a keyword and fails to trigger from File Filter (same as original posted code).
  5. Thanks for the feedback, but that's what I'm currently doing to make it work: "Copying the applescript to a NSAppleScript action (triggered by the File Filter) works as well" I'd like to understand why this isn't working. Additionally, I have to edit and debug n Script Editor; then copy to NSApplescript action. Alfred NSApplescripts are also limited, e.g. cannot have subroutines/functions. So I prefer to use embedded scripts. What's confusing is that this exact setup works in other workflows for me. I remember it working here for a while triggered by File Filters. I've tested:
  6. Does anyone have idea why a Run Script action (/usr/bin/osascript) will not execute from a File Filter trigger? I could swear this was working earlier. Trying to override the search in spotlight function with an applescript to parse the filename to a more usable form. Applescript runs fine as standalone or if triggered by keyword in the workflow. Copying the applescript to a NSAppleScript action (triggered by the File Filter) works as well, but I prefer an embedded script. I'm using the same Run script I've used in other workflows (and it works if triggered by a keyword in this wor
  7. Thanks for the fast response. I think I use all your workflows now, they're really well made. Someone else asked above but are you considering releasing the source of the embedded binary? I enjoy learning how these are made. It's educational to see a well designed workflow.
  8. Excellent workflow. Thank you. Would it be possible to add a delete function for items?
  9. DOH! I looked right at that and then forgot all about it as I focused on my expected behavior of the Removable Media vs Local Volumes. Thanks. I knew I needed more coffee today.
  10. Did some quick testing and it appears the Removable Media setting is designed for thumbsticks and not USB hard drives. Also selecting the non-system internal drive produces an error dialog that the volume is busy. While not elegant it may meet the WAF (wife acceptance factor).
  11. I'm not sure what the proper etiquette is here, some forums are rather sensitive about thread highjacking, so apologies in advance. My problem is similar enough to original post that continuing the discussion here seems easiest. I'm seeing similar issues in both Alfred 2.4 (279) and 2.5 (295) beta. It appears the detect removable volumes logic isn't working or I don't understand the intent (small thumbdrives only perhaps?). One or more USB drives attached and mounted. Displayed in Finder sidebar as ejectable. Alfred eject command finds no volumes and fallback to files/folders/etc with
  12. To give focus to the admin password dialog add this line before the do shell: tell current application to activate
  13. I figured it out. I have to check "with space" to have the two filters act as desired. I'm assuming before the fc was used regardless of which I typed. Thanks for the feedback and assistance.
  14. That appears to be the issue (similar filter filter keywords). The file version uses fc & the folder version uses fcf. I changed the folder keyword to something completely different and it works as expected. As the filters use a space, I would assume "fc name"and "fcf name" would be unique. Is this a bug or am I just expecting too much? Keyword ffc works as well but is not as much of a mnemonic for me. Turning off fuzzy matching didn't help. Thanks, Mike.
  15. I have no problems with the files filter for individual file types working as expected. Only "file filters" for folder only. Are you saying you have a filter that only shows folders? Thanks.
