  1. Hi @Andrew, i did add all the folders in my home folder, including finite ones (dot prefixed). I’ve dropped you an email as requested. Thanks Ben
  2. Hi @Andrew, I tired as suggested, showing invisible files showed a number of Files and Folders Drag all Folders into default search scope No issue with Mail/Message attachments appearing in Alfred Drag a File into default search scope Issue reappeared with Mail/Message attachments appearing in Alfred It appears dragging a file into default search scope adds "~", I'm assuming this is adding entire Home folder to scope Below is a list of files/folders in my home folder using terminal "ls -al" command. Let me know if I can do/provide anything else to help? Ben ~ ben$ ls -al total 136 drwxr-xr-x+ 31 ben staff 992 Jan 16 06:47 . drwxr-xr-x 5 root admin 160 Oct 21 09:02 .. srwxr-xr-x 1 ben staff 0 Jan 14 18:11 .Box_EngineServer srwxr-xr-x 1 ben staff 0 Jan 14 18:11 .Box_StreemToSync srwxr-xr-x 1 ben staff 0 Jan 14 18:11 .Box_SyncToStreem srwxr-xr-x 1 ben staff 0 Jan 14 18:11 .Box_UIServer -r-------- 1 ben staff 7 Nov 27 2017 .CFUserTextEncoding -rw-r--r--@ 1 ben staff 10244 Jan 16 06:54 .DS_Store drwx------ 3072 ben staff 98304 Jan 16 06:47 .Trash -rw------- 1 ben staff 23466 Jan 15 21:37 .bash_history drwx------ 466 ben staff 14912 Jan 16 06:54 .bash_sessions drwxr-xr-x 8 ben staff 256 Nov 27 2017 .cisco drwxr-xr-x 3 ben staff 96 Mar 20 2018 .config drwx------ 3 ben staff 96 Dec 7 2017 .cups drwx------ 15 ben staff 480 Dec 27 11:00 .gnupg -rw------- 1 ben staff 78 Aug 1 23:48 .lesshst drwxr-xr-x 8 ben staff 256 Jul 26 14:19 .oracle_jre_usage drwxr-xr-x 81 ben staff 2592 Jan 16 06:50 .sqldeveloper -rw------- 1 ben staff 13 Mar 15 2018 .sqlite_history drwx------ 9 ben staff 288 Jan 14 17:18 .ssh -rw------- 1 ben staff 14969 Jul 4 2018 .viminfo drwx------@ 3 ben staff 96 Dec 6 2017 Applications drwxr-xr-x@ 11 ben staff 4096 Jan 15 22:15 Box drwx------+ 11 ben staff 352 Jan 15 23:09 Desktop drwx------+ 11 ben staff 352 Jan 14 22:18 Documents drwx------+ 8 ben staff 256 Jan 16 06:50 Downloads drwx------+ 83 ben staff 2656 Jan 2 12:00 Library drwx------+ 5 ben staff 160 Oct 21 08:05 Movies drwx------+ 4 ben staff 128 Dec 31 2017 Music drwx------+ 4 ben staff 128 Nov 27 2017 Pictures drwxr-xr-x+ 5 ben staff 160 Nov 27 2017 Public
  3. @ben.mcmurry for ~/Library/Mobile Documents, I dragged that folder into the search scope manually (without checking "Include folders in Home". This allowed me to search iCloud documents without Mail (and iMessage) attachments/downloads appearing in results.
  4. Thanks Vero for the suggestions, I've done as suggested. Took Screenshots of "Default Results" and "File Search" settings (see images 01 - 08) Unchecked "Include folders in Home", dragged in every folder in Home Folder into Search Scope, excluding ~/Library (see image 09) Alfred is now searching correctly compared to when "Include folders in Home" is checked, (see images 10 - 11) You can view the screenshots here - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tnafsy4c1rvw138/AAApSYur3yRP4gZSPR1r0p11a?dl=0 Thanks Ben
  5. I've created a hack with a workflow to workaround this bug. Change the General Alfred Hotkey to something else Disable Quick Search in "File Search" preference pane Create a new workflow Hotkey with: Action = Show in Alfred Argument = Text Value = ' File Filter Keyword = ' Search Scope = desired files Open File
  6. Hi Andrew, I'm starting this thread up again. Alfred is still showing Mail attachment downloads in the file search. I've tried to re-index Spotlight a few times and it does not help. Do you have any further suggestions? Ben
  7. Hi Alfred Team, Recently I've noticed a lot of Mail attachment downloads appearing in my File Search. I use [spacebar] to start a File Search and start typing, e.g. abc The results show a list of files, one which is in my documents folder and the rest which are in '~/Library/Mail/V5/x/x/x/abc.txt I've been able to do a workaround by: Preference > Default Results > Uncheck "Include folders in Home" Add all folders in Home excluding ~/Library into Search Scope It seems the grey help text "Excluding ~/Library" under the check box is not being honored. Versions: macOS 10.13.2 (17C88) Alfred v3.6.2 [922] Powerpack Thanks in advance Ben
  8. I know this is an old topic, but since moving to 10.12 this no longer works for me. It opens a New Tab, but puts the query in the existing tab first
  9. Thanks Vero, sorry for taking so long in responding
  10. Steps to reproduces – Create a TextEdit file a save to Desktop – Select file in Finder and Get Info, check the "Stationary Pad" option. – Double clicking the file in Finder opens a copy of the original – Opening using Alfred opens to original Was able to reproduce every time using different file types, bbedit, Mou, TextEdit. Alfred version - 2.5.1 (308) OS X version - 10.10.1
  11. Try saving the automator workflow as an Application, this way it will open and run as a separate application. If you need to edit the workflow open the Automator app, Go to "File > Open" and select the file.
  12. If you go to the workflow section in the Alfred 2 Preferences. Click the "+" (bottom right), then use the template: Templates > Files and Apps > Launch file group from keyword. The workflow is created, double click the workflow elements to edit your keyword trigger and to drag your Automator file into the "Launch Apps/Files"
  13. I've switched to using iCloud syncing with 1Password 4. Alfred now can't find the 1Password keychain. Is it possible with the current Alfred to access the keychain in stored in iCloud "~/Library/Mobile Documents/"?
  14. I would use OS X keychain to store your login information and use the the command "security" to pull the info from it. http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/security.1.html
  15. The Keychain Access application has a menu bar status in the Preferences. In the menu bar item the first option is "Lock Screen" which is the same as the Control-Shift-Eject shortcut. This menu bar item is located here /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app/Contents/Resources/Keychain.menu I dont know how or if it is even possible, but you utilise the Keychain.menu?
