  1. The workflow was updated to version 1.4: New Features: "Manage Tags" file actions now supports multiple files from Alfred's file buffer
  2. After you have selected "Manage Tags" and hit ENTER, make sure to select "Add Tag" and hit ENTER. Then input the tag name and press ENTER again.
  3. It works if you select the application in Alfred's file browser and invoke the "Manage Tags" file action. I'll have a look why it's not working with the Finder selection.
  4. What the workflow does is: /usr/bin/mdfind -0 "(kMDItemUserTags == '*')" |xargs -0 mdls -name kMDItemUserTags |grep '^ ' |cut -c5- |cut -d , -f 1 |sort -u This queries all tagged files and then extracts the distinct tag names. I am a bit concerned about the performance if one has lots of tagged files. I hope that Apple will come up with an improved tagging support in the future.
  5. The workflow was updated to version 3.1: What's new: Fixed "Tasks done today" showing wrong tasks new feature "Search tasks" to find tasks by part of their names
  6. Should work with Personal and Pro versions of DEVONthink. Which version are you using?
  7. The workflow was updated to version 1.3: New Features: ".taglist" command now uses mdfind to query all tags instead of the unreliable Finder plist.
  8. I checked with fseventer and the only file that gets modified when I create a new / rename an existing tag is ~/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist. That's the one I parse for the tag list. So either fseventer misses some "special" system files that get modified or Apple uses another fancy technique to gather all tags in Finder. This really drives me nuts. On the one hand I am so happy that Apple finally jumped on the tagging train but on the other hand I am quite disappointed by how incomplete this new feature was delivered. There is no official CLI, no AppleScript support,...
  9. This uses the view settings of the tags shown by "All Tags" in Finder. Not sure if there is a "critical mass" that stops Finder from storing the tags in its prefs. Haven't found any other way until now. Suggestions are welcome.
  10. The workflow was updated to version 1.2: New Features: new keyword ".taglist" to show all available tags
  11. No, unfortunately not. But you could create a Smart Folder in Finder or use spotlight: tag:<tagname> kind:mail You can avoid the tag: prefix but I usually keep it for better visualization.
  12. The workflow was updated to version 1.1: New Features: tag multiple files at once add multiple tags at once (separated by comma: tag1,tag2,tag3) tag email in Apple Mail
  13. German translations are almost always dubious if not misleading. I therefore switched my Mac's GUI language to English long time ago.
