  1. One of my favourite features of Alfred is the ability to do system wide fuzzy search for common file types and applications I use. I've customized Alfred to index file types such as .js, .py, .docx, .xlsx to name a few that I commonly use. I've noticed about 2-3 weeks ago that this fuzzy search feature stopped working. Excel files that I search for that would normally appear stopped appearing. Folders that I normally access will not show up unless I provide the absolute path to the directory. Typing things like "Apple TV" no longer shows the TV app, requiring me to type in exactly "TV" for it to show up. In terms of settings wise, nothing has changed on my end. Is there something I'm missing? What do I need to do to re-enable the previous functionality?
  2. I'm running the latest public Alfred release 4.0.9 [1144] after upgrading from Alfred 3. I reloaded the cache already and have 'macOS Applications' checkbox enabled in the Default Results. However, I still have duplicate results for some applications appearing in the search results. For example, Adobe Lightroom Classic appears both in /Applications and /System/Volumes/Data/Applications, but Arq appears only in /Applications. How do I fix this?
  3. Hello, I'm trying to add Evernote to my search result. I found this: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/evernote/ which mentions two locations to add to my search path. Neither one exists on my mac. rcook@Richs-iMac (~ ): ls ~/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/ ls: /Users/rcook/Library/Containers/com.evernote.Evernote/: No such file or directory rcook@Richs-iMac (~ ): ls ~/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote ls: /Users/rcook/Library/CoreData/com.evernote.Evernote: No such file or directory Is there an updated set of instructions available? Thanks in advance for the help! (btw black lives matter)
  4. It's relatively minor, but I notice it given how often I use the built-in Twitter Web Search... but the icon is using the wrong color Tweetie bird!
  5. any chance to get the fuzzy search working in Alfred for the integrated 1Password feature? i try to do everything through Alfred, but the 1Password search is quite painful currently. i could spin up a workflow but probably it'd be better in the integrated version?
  6. I think there're two aspects where Alfred can improve: 1. Allow user to search for content in the files in a specific folder (i.e. before using 'in' function, user can assign a specific folder as the search scope) 2. Allow user to specify the file type for search. For example, search pdf only in a specific folder. I understand that these functions can be implemented by making workflows, but it's hard for non technical person like me to create one. I wish that these would be built-in function or in the sample workflows.

  8. I have 2 identical folders, one backup of the other. When I perform a search for files, it returns only files from the second (backup) folder. Is there a way to prioritize search firstly in the original folder and secondly in the backup folder? Thank you!
  9. Hi there, at work we have a folders structure that goes something light that: - PROJECT NAME - PROJECT NAME CITY NAME1 - PROJECT NAME CITY NAME2 - PROJECT NAME CITY NAME3 - PROJECT NAME CITY NAME4 - Etc. And file names work the same way. That means we have many folders and files starting with the same name. When I use Alfred to search for a folder or file and it doesn't appear in the results and it doesn't appear in the 40 results displayed, how do I push Alfred to find it and make it appear in future searches? Thank you for your help, I love how I keep discovering new use for Alfred, time after time. Rad
  10. Search Goodreads.com from Alfred. Download from GitHub. Search by book/author List books by author Open details on Goodreads.com Add custom hotkeys to pass title/author etc. to your own URLs See the documentation on GitHub for more information. You need to get a Goodreads API key from here. Add it to the workflow with grconf > API Key Not Set.
  11. Hi, Alfred sets a limit of 40 items returned in the search results. Is there a way i can increase this number OR preferably, "page down" to the next set of results? Thank you very much! Steve
  12. Search Unicode Search Unicode is an Alfred 4 Workflow to lookup and reverse lookup Unicode characters and emoji with their names. This workflow is also published on GitHub at https://github.com/blueset/alfred-search-unicode. Download Download it at its GitHub release page. You need to install Python 3 on your macOS in order for this to work. You can install that with Homebrew using the command below: brew install python Usage Search character by description Type u keyword (ex. u superscript) to get a list of characters matching the keyword. Press Return to copy the character to clipboard (ex. ⁰) Press Cmd + Return to copy its Hex code to clipboard (ex. U+2070) Press Option + Return to copy its name to clipboard (ex. Superscript Zero) Search character by code point Type u codepoint [[codepoint] ...] (ex. u fffd ff10) to look up characters by its codepoint. The same 3 options apply here too. Search emoji by name Type e keywords (ex. e face) to look up characters by its codepoint. Press Return to copy the character to clipboard (ex. 😀) Identify characters in a string Type uid string (ex. uid ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)) to identify characters in a string. For the first 4 rows (hex sequence, integer sequence, UTF-8 sequence and XML escape sequence): Press Return to copy the sequence to clipboard (ex. 28 20 0361 B0 20 035C 0296 20 0361 B0 29) For the following rows that identifies each individual characters: Press Cmd + Return to copy its Hex code to clipboard (ex. U+2070) Press Option + Return to copy its name to clipboard (ex. Superscript Zero) Credit This workflow depends on resources from: arp242/uni 1.0.0 with Unicode 12.1 Data Twemoji 12.1.4 for emoji preview License Copyright 2019 Eana Hufwe <https://1a23.com> Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the “Software”), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.

  14. I'm trying to create a workflow that searches only for Premiere CC project files on my machine (or mounted network drives,) but filtering out any Premiere CC project files that are contained within any folders with the word "Auto-Save" in the title. Is something like that possible? I can create a search like that in Finder, I'm just not sure how to do it in an Alfred workflow. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

  16. Thank you guys! With the great Alfred 3, I can open webpage, mailbox, search internet and do translate work in a smooth and quick way. Here is one function I would like to request - I only use Easyfind to search files on my mac. It would be very helpful if I type some words in Alfred and then showed a shortcut in fallback results which reads "Search on Easyfind". When clicked, it will run Easyfind and do search the search work. Sorry that I know only little about Workflow, but is there any possibility that it could be done with Alfred?
  17. Alfred workflow to view recent versions of any npm package Install $ npm install --global alfred-npm-versions # or $ yarn global add alfred-npm-versions Or from Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/npm-versions Usage In Alfred, type versions, your query, then Enter. e.g. versions react Enter
  18. This project is published on GitHub , the full document and download can be found here: https://github.com/MacHu-GWU/afwf_fts_anything-project fts.anything is an Alfred Workflow allow you to custom full-text search on your own dataset. You can easily define which fields you want to search, how you want the data to be matched and send the result to other workflow to process. Example: The Data Set (IMDB Top 3 movies, content of ``movie.json``): [ { "description": "Two imprisoned men bond over a number of years, finding solace and eventual redemption through acts of common decency.", "genres": "Drama", "movie_id": 1, "title": "The Shawshank Redemption" }, { "description": "The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.", "genres": "Crime,Drama", "movie_id": 2, "title": "The Godfather" }, { "description": "The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York City is portrayed, while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate.", "genres": "Crime,Drama", "movie_id": 3, "title": "The Godfather: Part II" } ] Search Setting (content of ``movie-setting.json``): { "columns": [ // define search mode for each field { "name": "movie_id", "type_is_store": true }, { "name": "title", "ngram_maxsize": 10, "ngram_minsize": 2, "type_is_ngram": true }, { "name": "description", "type_is_phrase": true }, { "keyword_lowercase": true, "name": "genres", "type_is_keyword": true } ], "title_field": "title", // title on Alfred drop down menu "subtitle_field": "description", // subtitle on Alfred drop down menu "arg_field": "movie_id", // argument for other workflow component "autocomplete_field": "{movie_id} - {title}", // tab auto complete behavior "icon_field": "/Users/<username>/.alfred-fts/movie-icon.png" }
  19. Long time power pack owner. Can't believe I'm just now running into this... When I type in a query that isn't found locally, Alfred automatically searches Google. I've decided to stop using Google in favor of DuckDuckGo. How can I change the default so that I don't have to type "duck" every time I search the web?
  20. Is it possible to create a file filter that operates as if each word in a query has a wildcard in front of it? For example, let's say I have a file filter set up as follows: (1) Keyword is "pdf", (2) File Types set to PDFs, and (3) Search Scope set to ~/Documents/SmallFolder. Is it possible to change the file filter's Advanced settings so that the following Alfred search: pdf SearchTerm1 SearchTerm2 SearchTerm3 approximates the following input: pdf *SearchTerm1 *SearchTerm2 *SearchTerm3 In other words, when using a specific file filter, I'd like to avoid having to manually type a hyphen in front of each search term. I understand why you wouldn't want this to be the default behavior in Alfred, but I was hoping to create some file filters that work in this manner (on small folders, etc., so that they're not too system-intensive). @deanishe has a nice fuzzy folder search, which is robust enough to do a lot of the same things, but I was just wondering how to mimic the wildcard search described above. I've never quite understood how many of the options in the File Filter's Advanced tab work (beyond simply adding more Metadata Files that are not included by default), and I was hoping there was a way to change these settings to achieve what I've described above. Initially, I thought that (1) unchecking the "words" column, and (2) unchecking the "Anchor searches which are not word based" would have the same effect. However, I'm not receiving the same result as when I use wildcards. Thanks for any help you can lend!
  21. Usage Type dnt + keywords to search in all opened databases. Type dnd to choose which datebase to search Press Enter, then type in keywords to search in the chosen database. Press ⌘Command + Enter to list all tags in the database, then choose a tag and press Enter to list all documents which have the tag. Type dnm + tag1, tag2, ... to list all documents which have these tags in all database. Tags inputed must be exact. For example, Tag aBcD can't be inputed as aBc or abcd After documents were listed, Press Enter to open the selected result with DEVONthink. Press ⌘Command + Enter to open with external editor. Press ⌥Option + Enter to reveal result in DEVONthink. You can download it from Github
  22. It would be great if we could specify a tag / CSS path to display results within Alfred itself. IE. "so node open file" https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=node+open+file would return (below, similar to spotlight) the results from the stack overflow query... at least the first 5 or 6 or something. So a search result would be: ".js-search-result h3 a" And the link would be: ".js-search-result h3 a" (it would take the href) Clearly that wouldn't work on all sights, but it would be easy enough to return actual results to Alfred and would allow faster access to the exact result the user wants .
  23. I bought Alfred 3 powerback. I have 1250 snippets that used to run on Windows software called ShortKeys. I exported my snippets as text file (only option). i could not bring to Alfred 3. There is no way to import them to Alfred 3 from text file. I will put all of them in one snippet as text. I will just search a keyword when i need info about something. However, there is no option to search within snippet. We really want the ability to search inside snippet for keywords. In my case, i have 6k lines notes in text. I will create a snippet and paste those notes. Then, when i need something, i will open this specific snippet and search inside it. Please, Please add this feature.
  24. I'm new to Alfred and already loving it. I'm working a lot with tags for my files and use hazel to auto-tag my scanned office papers. Using filesearch with tags works fine. But I want to narrow down the result with just adding a part of the filename. That's weired because alfred switches to search google now ... Am I missing something? e. g. "tags invoice %customer name% where 'invoice is my tag and %customer name% the variable for the actual customer I'm searching for
  25. I'd like to be able to drag a file from, say, the finder onto an alfred app search result to open the file with this app. It was something I was using on quicksilver and missed on alfred from day 1 (I use alfred since 2013) and somehow never suggested the feature, probably because I was way too certain than it'd be implemented at some point.
