  1. I'm chiming in here because I had this exact problem, and went through all the same steps JackH initially tried, and reached probably the same level of frustration. I'm happy I came looking for help here because what in the end worked for JackH also worked for me. Thanks for figuring that out!! And yes, I agree with deanishe that a "turn off syncing" button would be a helpful and logical addition here.
  2. Wow, this workflow is amazing. I switched to Alfred (from Quicksilver!) back in 2015, mainly because I saw the potential for using it with DTPO. None of the Alfred/DTPO workflows available then satisfied me, I couldn't figure out how to make one myself, and I eventually gave up on linking my two favorite apps. What you've made is exactly what I've wanted all these years. Thank you!! (And thanks also for the Keyboard Maestro macro, which is a great way to keep the cache updated.)
  3. Seems I had accidentally turned off "automatically check for updates". Now that I'm on 3.3.1, this is working beautifully. Thank you again!
  4. Oh, that's right! So easy. Thank you for the helpful response. Some follow-up feedback: I have Advanced > Apps Matching set to "Full fuzzy match from word boundary". But this setting seems not to apply when I'm searching for an app via the "Open With" action. So for example, I can open PDFpen with "pp" in Alfred's normal search pane. But if select a PDF, hit alf+f, and choose "Open With", I'm not able to select PDFpen from the list by typing "pp". Furthermore, searching *within* Alfred's action panel doesn't work as I expect it to: I keep trying to select "Open With" by typing "
  5. I'd like to ask for help accomplishing the following: 1. select a file in Finder 2. trigger Alfred 3. search for the app I wish to open that file with 4. open that file with that app Is this possible? (I've searched the forums for "open with", which is the command I used to use in Quicksilver to accomplish this. I found ways to set up workflows to open a specific file type with a specific application. But that's not what I want. I want a more flexible way to, on the fly, search for the application I want to use with the currently select
  6. I'd love a workflow that just searches for groups and/or tags in DEVONthink. Does anyone know if this might be possible? Any hints on how I might build such a workflow? Thanks for any input!
  7. Hi Andrew, Thanks for the tips and explanations. They help me understand a little better how Alfred works. I upped the File Search results to 40, and forced a full low level reindex, but "n" still did not return the bookmark I'm looking for. So then I deleted and re-saved the bookmark, and now it shows up as expected, and is back to the default for "n". That's nice! Not sure what may have gone wrong with the original bookmark. Enabling "Touch folders after opening them" seems to have fixed the sorting issue of my Applications folders. Thanks again, and happy 6th birthday to Alf
  8. Hello. I'm using Alfred v2.2.2 (432), Mac OS 10.11.3. I have been having issues with the order of results. Below are two examples, which I am putting in the same bug report with the assumption that they are closely related. 1) I have my preferences set to include Bookmarks in the Default Results. When I invoke Alfred and type "n", I always want the first result to be a bookmark titled "New York Times". Most of the time Alfred remembers this. But sometimes he forgets. Usually when he forgets, I can find this bookmark by typing a bit more of its title ("new") and selecting it; I'll then
