  1. @Vero Things were great for a day or two but at some point the index seems to have been corrupted again and I'm having the same issue. I don't know if it's a Big Sur bug or something with Alfred, but I wanted to mention it here (for reference if nothing else). I'll re-index and see what happens.
  2. Terminal was in the list of apps with Full Disk Access, but the box wasn't checked. I checked the box and ran the rebuild metadata tool again. This time there weren't any errors! Index is taking a lot longer this time so I assume it's working correctly (last time indexing was done in less than two minutes). Thanks for your patience!

  4. I've done some more digging and running `mdfind -onlyin /Users/dansherman/clients -name Forms` also does not find the Forms folder. Actually, using `-onlyin /Users/dansherman` doesn't find it either. Even running `mdfind . -onlying /Users/dansherman/clients` only returns files and folders I've opened since upgrading to Big Sur. Which is useful in a way, but not most of the time. Chalk this one up to a Spotlight bug I guess?
  5. I re-rebuilt the index and it still doesn't work. I'm specifically trying to find a folder, but searching for a file gives the same result. This happens in the default File Search as well as with File Filters in workflows. Other files and folders in this parent folder show up just fine if I've opened it since upgrading to Big Sur. This is the Alfred Metadata Tool result for a folder that does not show up in Alfred but does in spotlight: /Users/dansherman/clients/Forms Internal File Metadata ====================== Display Name: Forms Alt Names: File Type: public.fol
  6. I've rebuilt my index a few times, spotlight can find files just fine, and the Alfred Metadata Tool shows the correct info, so I *think* that means this is an Alfred issue. The File Search and File Filter in a workflow will only find files and folders that I've opened since installing Big Sur. If I haven't opened it, Alfred can't see it. I tried clearing Alfred's learning knowledge, but that didn't make a difference. Any other ideas?
  7. I'm not sure if this is a bug, or by design. But it feels buggy to me, so I thought I'd post it here. In the "Advanced" tab I set `cmd + return` to "Search with Spotlight". This works as expected in a vanilla Alfred query, but if I do a file search it changes from "Search with Spotlight" to "Find similar files". I'd expect it to perform a spotlight search with my query instead of showing me related files. Latest Alfred 2.0.7(205), OSX 10.8.4
  8. I updated add.scpt to work with any track in iTunes (in my library anyway — including iTunes Match tracks located in iCloud). on run argv set sArgv to argv as text tell application "iTunes" set myList to sArgv set current_track to the current track set sTrack to name of current_track set sArtist to artist of current_track --check if in playlist set sListTracks to name of tracks of playlist myList as list if sListTracks contains sTrack then return "\"" & sTrack & "\"" & " is already in " & "\"" & myList & "\"" else set currentList to playlist my
  9. Well, that pretty much takes care of my suggestion. Thanks.
  10. I've done that, and it works ok, but I think it'd be even better if Alfred could replace the existing text directly. Especially without involving the clipboard or defining a new hotkey.
  11. I'd love to be able to select some text, pull up Alfred, type a keyword, and run a script to manipulate the selected text. A lot of this can be done through text services, but it'd be great to do it straight through Alfred. I suppose another way to do this would be to call the separate service from within Alfred. Either way, it would be nice to return some manipulated text.
  12. All set. I added a line to replace 'https' with 'http'. The link in the first post has the updated version.
  13. I updated the link in the original post, it shouldn't expire now.
