  1. Post below has details - still no script filter equivalent though, but it’s a lot closer than iOS has ever gotten before. https://talk.macpowerusers.com/t/ios-14-favorite-features/18248/14

    macOS Big Sur

    Off topic but how is Big Sur working for you overall?
  3. You should use a list filter. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/list-filter/
  4. Does the "This is me!" item need to respond to the script filter or is it going to be fixed regardless of the search? If not you could create a new trigger with a name which is a subset of or the same as your existing keyword. Then if you trigger it a couple times it should always appear before the filter.
  5. This doesn't answer your question directly, but one approach which i've used is to set the subtitle of items to display additional info. Another trick I've used is to create multiple items with the same keyword. I use both in this example:
  6. This is Catalina blocking it. You can follow the second set of steps (under Note:) on this page: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/open-a-mac-app-from-an-unidentified-developer-mh40616/mac That worked for me with another workflow with a Swift binary included.

  10. A lot depends on what you’re trying to do. For some apps (e.g. DEVONthink, BibDesk, FileMaker, the iWork and MSOffice suites, etc.) AppleScript lets you automate stuff you couldn’t do otherwise. But for a lot of tasks, I agree, it’s not the most suitable language.
  11. Hmm...I'm not on Catalina so there may be some issue there.
  12. Hmm I have this working as part of The only difference I see is that I don't have the scope specified.
  13. It's a workflow, with snippet triggers, so you'd need the PowerPack & to install the .alfredworkflow file linked in the first post.
  14. In case anyone is still using version 1.2 of this (like I was) it will work in Mojave with Word 2016 if you change the lines in the Applescript save as active document file format format document default file name thePDF to save as active document file format format PDF file name thePDF
