  1. @Vero I managed to solve this issue. Two of the folders I was having issue with are on an external volume. I do have them in my search scope and I did Rebuild the macOS Metadata, but it was not until I went into spotlight preferences and followed steps 3 and 4 here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201716 that I got things working again. I hope this additional info is helpful.
  2. Thanks @Vero I've completed the steps for re-indexing etc. Where should I email the diagnostics file and other background. Thanks, Michael
  3. Hello I am having some issues with my default search results and some custom searches on macos 11.5.2. I'm running the latest version of alfred and it is suddenly is only finding some files i have previously opened. For example I have a custom search for taskpaper files and the only results that appear are files that i've recently opened. In the past i wouldn't even have to use a custom search. This is happening with many different files. I've rebuilt the metadata via alfred. Before I did that I would get no results, now i only get one or two files. Any other trouble shooting help would be appreciated. Thanks, Michael
  4. Thanks @Andrew Here is my pasted path using the copy to clipboard file action: '/Volumes/Remote Audio III' and here it is with command+c '/Volumes/Remote Audio III' I'm expecting the path to paste like this: '/Volumes/Remote\ Audio\ III' is that not correct?
  5. Hello, I use the file navigation within Alfred often and I like to go to a path and then use alfred's "Copy Path to Clipboard" action. I have the "Escape path on 'Copy Path to Clipboard' action preference checked, but when I paste into a text editor it does not escape spaces in the file path. Or am I wrong to think this should escape spaces in a path? I am running the latest version of alfred and 10.14.6 Thanks, Michael
  6. I am going to migrating to a new machine in January, but I will not be using apple’s migration assistant. I will be decommissioning my old machine in February. Is there anything i need to do to properly move my license to the new machine. Do I need to remove the license from the old machine? Thanks!
  7. Thanks for that. It gives me something to review so i can understanding some basic shell scripting. I appreciate that. To date. I have just been grabbing bits here an there to make stuff work.
  8. I'm afraid i am now in over my head. I'm not sure how to store the path i navigated to within alfred in a variable and then then use a Keyword to ask for the name of the parent directory. And modify the script to accept those variables. I apologize but i am learning as i go.
  9. @deanishe thank you! I managed to get that to work. It creates the folders! I'm new to this, is there a way to choose the destination directory and then pass a {query} that names the parent folder these folders would reside with. i.e. - navigate to directory - choose file action - type file name of project folder name - run mkdir scripts I'm just stabbing in the dark.
  10. I've attached a screen shot an automator workflow that a bunch of folders and subfolders. it prompts the user to name the parent folder and choose a destination. I'm wondering if there is a way to accomplish this completely within an alfred workflow?
  11. this is how i have it setup. is there a simpler way?
  12. Is that different than what I am describing in scenario #2 above?
  13. Hello, I often navigate to external drives within alfred a couple of ways 1. Launch Alfred. Type /Volumes/ and then navigate to the drive I am looking for. 2. I also have a few hot keys that navigate to volumes i use repeatedly: Action: Show Alfred, Argument: Text, Text: /Volumes/Name of Drive/, --------> Browse in Alfred This works for me, but also wondering if there is a more efficient way to handle this. Thanks, Michael
