Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. Is it possible to search emails within Postbox 4 from Alfred 3?
  2. @CarlosNZ - I too have been having this problem for a few months now, but haven't had the time to debug it. I'll try to get around to it this weekend. I've got a decent sized set of random files in my DeskDrawer folder; I'll see if I can narrow down which one is causing files to not appear. As an aside, I'm a bit confused as to what the official version is at the moment. Your website says 1.61, the workflow says 1.3 in the readme title, 1.4 in the changelog.
  3. Similar to the File Filter UI, but instead of utilizing it to determine a file type, allow the user to add to a bucket of files/folders that Alfred then takes some specific action(s) on. For a specific example, I ran into this issue here: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/3297-keyword-opens-specific-file-or-with-modifier-shows-it-in-finder/
  4. Worked perfectly. Thanks for the confirmation I'm not crazy for thinking this should be built in to Alfred. Will make that feature suggestion!
  5. I have a file I expect to need access to multiple random times over the next few weeks. I'm trying to create a workflow where I type a keyword, and when I hit return, the file opens in its default application. If I hit ⌘-return, it opens a Finder window with the file selected. I can't seem to hardcode a specific file in Alfred; there's no way to feed Alfred a specific file similar to the "Launch Apps/Files" action. It seems unnecessary to have to drop to Applescript for this, but I'm not seeing another way. Am I wrong? Thanks for the help. sidenote: I realize open filename will work 99% of the time, with the ⌘ modifier for Show in Finder - the filename is a common word in my filesystem and I figured I'd make the temp workflow just to not deal with the "is this the right file" decision/slowdown. At this point, I'm just kinda baffled that Alfred doesn't seem to support being fed a specific file ahead of time to act upon without scripting.
