  1. I posted this in someone's thread about unrelated mavericks problems, so I thought I'd post here again. Even since updating to OS X Mavericks, Alfred's file search has lost its magic for me. The results used to be ordered in a relevant manner and Alfred used to magically pick the 10 files I most likely had in mind with a partial query. That is no longer the case since updating to Mavericks. I get random files that I havent opened in years. As a concrete example: 'pdf - used to give the most recently opened pdfs in alfred 'pdf - now gives random pdfs.. Worse, Alfred doesn't seem to be learning! I open some pdfs by extended 'pdf into a more precise query, say 'pdf docA .. and it never learns! docA isnt shown the next time i type 'pdf... The same problem extends to filenames (not just extensions) and everything else.. it is quite annoying to have my workflow interrupted like this. Does anyone know what went wrong? I must note that I did update Alfred right after installing Mavericks a couple of days ago. I also have Alfred installed on my work desktop (that I havent used in weeks) with dropbox sync.
  2. Sorry, here is the precise problem: I have two latex files I want to open using a latex editor (TexStudio). I created a Launch filegroup with keyword workflow. 1. If I list TexStudio.app as the first item on that list, the apps opens up with only the first latex file. 2. If I do not list TexStudio.app as the first item on that list, the apps opens up with only the second latex file. 3. If TexStudio is running already, both latex files open up. Please help! Workflows aren't useful if they are so buggy!
  3. Hello, I created a workflow using the standard launch file group from keyword template in Alfred.. I dragged and dropped a bunch of latex documents needed for a project into the Multiple Files action. When I trigger this workflow with the keyword, only the first file opens often.. sometimes all files open but it is unpredictable. If I trigger again after the first file is opened, the next file opens.. I tried dragging and dropping the latex editor app itself as the first thing to open but this doesn't solve the problem. OOOPS!! It is the second file that opens.. not the first file! The first latex file on my list is not opened, only the second/rest are.. I tried putting the app itself as the first item on the list but it didnt help..
  4. Never mind! Repeated the disk permissions repair and rebuilding mailboxes a couple of times (including the Verify disk permissions thing) in some random order... and it works now! Thanks!
  5. Huh.. I dont think I set up any special permissions .. I'm the sole user with general admin permissions. I didnt really customize this mac in any way.. I implemented both of your suggestions. Repairing permissions did fix some files and I rebuilt mailboxes.. but I still have the same problem. So do most people not have this problem then?
  6. I have the powerpack installed on two different Macs (an Air and a desktop) and email attachments dont work on either.. I just get an email message window with the right subject line and recipient but no attached file. This happens with files of all types.. Here are some errors I found in the Console app: 9/12/13 1:05:57.259 PM sandboxd[7075]: ([5015]) Mail(5015) deny file-read-xattr /Users/name/Dropbox/namer/paper/SITopics_am0825.toc 9/12/13 1:05:57.278 PM sandboxd[7075]: ([5015]) Mail(5015) deny file-read-data /Users/name/Dropbox/namer/paper/SITopics_am0825.toc When I click on full report for the latter one, I get this: Mail(5015) deny file-read-data /Users/amurugan/Dropbox/arvind/paper/SITopics_am0825.toc Process: Mail [5015] Path: /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail Load Address: 0x10341d000 Identifier: com.apple.mail Version: 1508 (6.5) Build Info: 3-Mail~1508000000000000 Code Type: x86_64 (Native) Parent Process: launchd [213] Date/Time: 2013-09-12 13:05:57.268 -0400 OS Version: Mac OS X 10.8.4 (12E55) Report Version: 8 Thread 0: 0 libsystem_kernel.dylib 0x00007fff84b10fee __open + 10 1 Foundation 0x00007fff90dc09b2 _NSReadBytesFromFile + 49 2 Foundation 0x00007fff90de5349 -[NSData(NSData) initWithContentsOfFile:options:error:] + 203 3 Foundation 0x00007fff90de512d -[NSData(NSData) initWithContentsOfURL:options:error:] + 226 4 Foundation 0x00007fff90f6a7dd +[NSFileWrapper _newContentsAtURL:path:itemKind:oldChildrenByUniqueFileName:options:error:] + 1524 5 Foundation 0x00007fff90f6a9d9 -[NSFileWrapper _readContentsFromURL:path:itemKind:options:error:] + 272 6 Foundation 0x00007fff90f690f9 -[NSFileWrapper initWithURL:options:error:] + 586 7 Foundation 0x00007fff90f6db2b -[NSFileWrapper(NSDeprecated) initWithPath:] + 142 8 Message 0x00007fff875f1314 -[NSFileWrapper(HFSExtensions) _Message_initWithPath:] + 206 9 AppKit 0x00007fff8c48f84b -[NSAttachmentTextStorage setFilename:] + 82 10 Foundation 0x00007fff90ddc165 -[NSObject(NSKeyValueCoding) setValue:forKey:] + 408 11 Foundation 0x00007fff90eb53f5 -[NSObject(NSScripting) setScriptingProperties:] + 282 12 Foundation 0x00007fff90eb5a82 -[NSObject(NSScripting) newScriptingObjectOfClass:forValueForKey:withContentsValue:properties:] + 181 13 Foundation 0x00007fff90e62ac9 -[NSCreateCommand _newObjectForContainer:inValueForKey:withClassDescription:] + 282 14 Foundation 0x00007fff90e62cad -[NSCreateCommand performDefaultImplementation] + 427 15 Foundation 0x00007fff90ee96ba -[NSScriptingAppleEventHandler handleCommandEvent:withReplyEvent:] + 210 16 Foundation 0x00007fff90dd607b -[NSAppleEventManager dispatchRawAppleEvent:withRawReply:handlerRefCon:] + 308 17 Foundation 0x00007fff90dd5edd _NSAppleEventManagerGenericHandler + 106 18 AE 0x00007fff8a729078 aeDispatchAppleEvent(AEDesc const*, AEDesc*, unsigned int, unsigned char*) + 307 19 AE 0x00007fff8a728ed9 dispatchEventAndSendReply(AEDesc const*, AEDesc*) + 37 20 AE 0x00007fff8a728d99 aeProcessAppleEvent + 318 21 HIToolbox 0x00007fff85c40709 AEProcessAppleEvent + 100 22 AppKit 0x00007fff8c233836 _DPSNextEvent + 1456 23 AppKit 0x00007fff8c232df2 -[NSApplication nextEventMatchingMask:untilDate:inMode:dequeue:] + 128 24 AppKit 0x00007fff8c22a1a3 -[NSApplication run] + 517 25 AppKit 0x00007fff8c1cebd6 NSApplicationMain + 869 26 libdyld.dylib 0x00007fff89ada7e1 start + 0 Binary Images: 0x7fff84aff000 - 0x7fff84b1aff7 libsystem_kernel.dylib (2050.24.15) <A9F97289-7985-31D6-AF89-151830684461> /usr/lib/system/libsystem_kernel.dylib 0x7fff85bd6000 - 0x7fff85f06fff com.apple.HIToolbox (2.0) <656D08C2-9068-3532-ABDD-32EC5057CCB2> /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/HIToolbox 0x7fff8748d000 - 0x7fff876d5fff com.apple.MessageFramework (6.5 - 1508) <9BBC75D2-736E-3F87-83ED-34F7942B2E0A> /System/Library/Frameworks/Message.framework/Versions/B/Message 0x7fff89ad8000 - 0x7fff89adbff7 libdyld.dylib (210.2.3) <F59367C9-C110-382B-A695-9035A6DD387E> /usr/lib/system/libdyld.dylib 0x7fff8a720000 - 0x7fff8a77ffff com.apple.AE (645.6 - 645.6) <44F403C1-660A-3543-AB9C-3902E02F936F> /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/AE.framework/Versions/A/AE 0x7fff8c0de000 - 0x7fff8cd0bfff com.apple.AppKit (6.8 - 1187.39) <199962F0-B06B-3666-8FD5-5C90374BA16A> /System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/AppKit 0x7fff90d73000 - 0x7fff910d2fff com.apple.Foundation (6.8 - 945.18) <1D7E58E6-FA3A-3CE8-AC85-B9D06B8C0AA0> /System/Library/Frameworks/Foundation.framework/Versions/C/Foundation
