    Any chance of a fix to the DropBox link?

    Navigate into an Alias

    @deanishe - never mind what I mean by "reference" - the List Filter suggestion is *exactly* what I need - thank you! It's perfect!

    Navigate into an Alias

    @deanishe - thanks for taking the time to reply. I think I wasn't clear (I do know what a symlink is). What is need to do is display a list of references to files or folders rather than the names of the files or folders, and I want the references to be navigable in Alfred. I also want the list of references to be automatically created by Alfred. If I use Tags/Keywords for this as you suggest, I can add a tag called "Favorite" or something like that and tag all the files/folders. Then I can get the list of items with these tags in Alfred. Plus the results listed are navigable. The problem is, I want unique references to be returned as the result. I tried with Spotlight Comments. So, for example, I added "Alias - Script Resources" to the Get Info Comment field. This was cool, as I was able to add a unique reference, but the results returned are still the actual file folder names, and not the Comment references. With all that in mind, I can think of a way of achieving this, but it does seem convoluted (is there an easier way)? - Create my unique Mac Aliases - Use a Workflow to display them as Results - Pass the selected result to AppleScript that resolves the Alias to original (equivalent of Cmd+R) - Pass the new path back to Alfred for navigating Think that's my best option? Thanks!

    Navigate into an Alias

    Thanks @deanishe - I created a symlink but Alfred doesn't seem to have registered it. I type "[SPACE]Alias - Documents" and the Alias doesn't appear in the list of Mac Aliases. Seems Spotlight doesn't reference symlinks. Is there perhaps a way in Alfred to get it to show a list of specific folders, preferably with alternative names?

    Navigate into an Alias

    When I invoke Alfred, type "Space" + "[Folder Name]" I can then select the folder, and use the right arrow to navigate into it. Nice! However, I also have Mac aliases on my drive that have easy-to-remember names. I'd like to be able to do the same in Alfred. But when I type "Space" + "[Alias Name]" then use the right arrow, it takes me to the containing folder of the alias and not the content of the aliased folder. Is there any way to get aliases to replicate the behavior of folders? Thanks, Pat
  6. That would be great (if it could include OR | type options).

    Ulysses workflow

    @dfay – it'll take me a day or two to digest what you've posted, but it looks like what I was looking for - thanks!

    Ulysses workflow

    Hi Rob, Thanks for the very useful workflow. I'm wondering is there any way to add a search that will produce the same results as appear in Ulysses "Last 7 Days" folder, but within the Alfred results window? Or even just sort the sheet results by modification date? I see there is a 'open-recent' action in the callback documentation you post above, though using it is beyond me except for creating a bookmark of the type: ulysses://x-callback-url/open-recent Thanks!
  9. @Carlos-Sz - The DropBox link on Page one of this discussion doesn't work any more (as per above) – any chance of a fix?
  10. Release notes for 3.3.2 include: > Update Alfred's built toolset on fresh new mini build server, shiny! What does this mean ?

    Duplicate Snippets option

    Cool tip on saving snippets from the Clipboard Viewer with Cmd + S – thanks! Not quite what I'd like (a Duplicate option), but very useful.
  12. I'm using a lot of very similar Snippets (email addresses for projects). It would be very useful to be able to right-click on an existing Snippet and "Duplicate" it, so I can tweak the text in a new Snippet. Also, as I create a lot of Snippets, the ability to create an Alfred shortcut that would take me straight to the Snippets tab would be useful too. Thanks!
  13. Hi @pedantix - I uninstalled the Alfred Evernote Workflow, quit Evernote & Alfred, relaunched Alfred, installed the flow from the top of this forum thread, and that was it! -Pat
  14. Hi Vero, I uninstalled, quit, restarted, reinstalled from link on page one here – now everything is working! Thanks for taking the time to try to help me sort this out! Pat
  15. Hi, So I'm running: Version 6.10 (454267 Direct) Basically when I invoke Evernote Search via the Workflow, it bounces me to my Alfred default searches. Alfred can access Evernote through its own search though, as I added `/Users/work/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote` to the default Search Scope. This works, but only searches on title, not content. Thanks, Pat
