  1. Just a clarification. My suggestion was to just use these programs. No need to create a workflow with them. Have fun
  2. Hey, Not exactly an answer to your question but in case you are interested you can use Phoenix or Slate. Check them out on github. Best, Dionysis
  3. Yes, I see. Maybe I am getting tangled due to old habits from other 'launcher' apps... Thanks! Dionysis
  4. Hello Vero Thank you for the (as usual) quick reply. I will follow your advice and try to get used to the b + space syntax but I do feel like having to find ways for going around the lack of control over the order of results. Is there a technical or design reason that such a simple feuture as being able to force a result into the first place has not be implemented? best, Dionysis
  5. Hello This is a problem that I have from time to time with Alfred: The usual pattern: 1) I want a particular result and type my selected keyword in. 2) The result is not first so I select it and press enter. 3) Next time it is further up so after doing that a few times a get it to stay first. But sometimes no matter how many times I select it and hit enter the result will not become the first option. In the occasion that prompted me to write this I have a 1password result called "something Bandcamp" so every time I hit 'b' I get it as the first result. Now it happens that I want the 'b' keyword to always trigger a workflow for pinboard bookmarks. This workflow is one that I use all the time so I I do not want to have to move to a different result than the first every time. This has happened in the past and I have found my self inventing workarounds and changing keywords to avoid it! Apart from finding why the behavior is not consistent (bug?), wouldn't it be simpler to have a modifier key allowing us to evaluate a particular result and set it as first at once? best wishes, Dionysis
  6. I can not see an 'about link'. I just got it so I am on version 2.1. My system is Mavericks so maybe is related to that....
  7. Hello there, Thanks for trying to fix this workflow I am using it with a dual monitor setup and if I try to arrange the window it extends it to fill both monitors. Is there any way to fix that? best, Dionysis
  8. That's great! Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question And on the positive side, I got introduced on the keyword to 'browse' workflow which I am already finding really useful!! best wishes, Dionysis
  9. That is exactly what I did. Maybe I wasn't clear in the previous post. Let me try again Normally when I have a keyword for a folder I: 1. hit cmd-space 2. input the keyword in Alfred 3. hit the right arrow to start browsing This is the behavior with all my folders so my muscle memory for this motion is really strong. Now with the workflow ('keyword' connected to 'browse in Alfred') I have to do: 1. - same as above - 2. - same as above - 3. hit enter!! I am sure you can imagine the result I just get it wrong every single time!! How can I simulate the usual behavior? Thanks! Dionysis
  10. Ah! So it is not a bug. That should be fine then. I will follow you advice and create a workflow. It is really simple to create it but a bit inconsistent that I need to hit enter to browse the folder in Alfred. My muscle memory is trained to hit the right arrow for browsing folders. Could you give me a quick hint of how to make it so that typing dw automatically opens the folder for browsing in Alfred? The favorites workflow (Fav) does it using a script filter but there is so many things going on in there that I can not figure it out... best, Dionysis
  11. Just had the same issue after a clean install of OSX Mavericks. To be exact it happens when adding a comment dw to the downloads folder. Alfred finds it only if I manually add the home directory. The side effect is the addition of the whole library. Could someone try to recreate? It works now but it is the third time that, after forgetting about it, I had to chase down the reason things are not working as expected. Thanks! Dionysis
  12. Thank you for your answer Andrew, I will investigate further and will get back to you only if the issue persists after a reinstall of the whole system. best, Dionysis
  13. Hello I am tracking the reason for my macbook pro's (10.8.5) slow startups and noticed a very slow startup time for alfred in the console: Is that normal? best wishes, Dionysis
  14. Hello Thanks for trying to solve it. Unfortunately I tried the new download but I am still getting the problem. best, Dionysis
