  1. Yes. rsync is a command-line sync tool. It doesn't do two-way sync, though. So if you're syncing your preferences between multiple Macs, it would be up to you to decide which preferences to overwrite.
  2. Can you provide a more detailed description of your problem?
  3. No, it's not possible with a File Filter. They are fundamentally designed to search the whole file tree, as is the Mac metadata index they rely on. You have two options: Tell Alfred to browse the folder with the AppleScript tell application id "com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred" to browse "~/Documents/". This will only the contents of that directory (no subdirectories), but it will show files as well as folders, however. . This will only the contents of that directory (no subdirectories), but it will show files as well as folders, however. Write a workflow with a Script Filter that only shows folders (e.g. using find /path/to/directory -type d -depth 1)
  4. I think everybody has problems with the indexer from time to time. You can try rebuilding the index from Alfred Preferences > Advanced > Rebuild macOS Metadata. Be warned: it usually takes a few hours and search (in Spotlight, Alfred and other apps) won't work properly till it's done.
  5. Released version 0.2.0 with support for other flavours of Firefox (Nightly, Developer Edition). @vitor I've added a way for other workflows to get the URL & title of the current tab. What do you think?
  6. No, it's not. Apps are read-only. They keep their settings in your home directory. If you weren't using sync, your Alfred preferences should be in ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences, but if all you backed up was the application, you've probably lost them.
  7. It sounds like the metadata indexer is running a bit slow on your machine. Presumably, it's not showing up in the File Filter immediately because you're filtering by filetype, but the the file's type isn't available until it's indexed.
  8. It’s Quick Look. You can preview any file that Quick Look supports.
  9. Thanks. I was wondering because you use browser.runtime but otherwise chrome.*. I thought I must have missed something.
  10. Out of interest, what's the reason for using chrome.tabs over browser.tabs in the extension?
  11. If you're having a problem with a workflow, please don't create a new thread. It fragments the discussion and your chances of getting a reply are significantly reduced. Post your question in the workflow's thread (which is linked from its Packal page), where the people best placed to help you will be notified of your post.
  12. The reload command only applies to applications and preference panes (Alfred keeps its own index of these). Everything else comes from the system metadata index (the same one used by Spotlight). Have you tried the troubleshooting steps?
  13. The default folder is ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred, with all your important preferences stored in the bundle ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences. However, if you'd set Alfred up to sync your preferences, the Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle would be stored in the folder you told Alfred to use as its sync folder.
  14. Welcome to't forum, fellow son of God's own country. It's not. Alfred isn't that kind of app. It's fundamentally a launcher, not a general automation tool. It's marvellous for finding and running stuff, but Alfred's native automation capabilities don't extend much beyond getting the selected text from an application and telling an application to open something. Workflows essentially allow you to use Alfred as the user interface to your own scripts. There are a whole lot of workflows that manipulate other applications or display their data in Alfred, but the workflows' authors coded all that manipulation and extraction themselves with little help from Alfred. As far as your use case goes, Alfred can give you a bunch of ways to execute your Pages extraction task, but it can't help you much with the task itself. The gold standard automation app for making other apps do stuff is Keyboard Maestro. All that said, our lovely forum members are heavily into automation (as you might expect), so if you can describe exactly what you're trying to achieve in more detail, there's a good chance someone here can help you.
  15. It isn’t there. That’s what Andrew said…
