When handling aliases for files/folders - either when browsing or through the usual search - I wish Alfred’s "Reveal in Finder" actions actually revealed the alias and not the file the alias is pointing to. In the scheme of things, while this is a relatively minor issue, it has always driven me crazy. This behavior is not only odd when dealing with the usual search results, but it's especially jarring when browsing in Alfred. If I use "cmd + ↩︎" to reveal an alias that I'm looking at when browsing in Alfred, I doesn't make any sense to me why Alfred's default behavior would be to reveal the actual file and not the alias. It's confusing enough with the usual search results, and it's especially odd when browsing. I can understand why revealing the actual file from an alias can be useful, but this has always struck me as odd that it’s the default behavior. Why not add this as a file action behavior (if people want it)? Or, at least provide users with an option in the “Advanced” panel where users can turn on/off how Alfred reveals aliases?
I often wish I could trigger a workflow input object by one of several keywords, rather than just the one. I have a lot of workflows and often find myself forgetting which keyword to use. Having a couple different options might make it a little easier. Thanks.
When I invoke Alfred, type "Space" + "[Folder Name]" I can then select the folder, and use the right arrow to navigate into it. Nice! However, I also have Mac aliases on my drive that have easy-to-remember names. I'd like to be able to do the same in Alfred. But when I type "Space" + "[Alias Name]" then use the right arrow, it takes me to the containing folder of the alias and not the content of the aliased folder. Is there any way to get aliases to replicate the behavior of folders? Thanks, Pat
