Good morning. I've been scratching my head on this one and haven't found much on the forum, which leads me to believe I may be going about this wrong as it feels quite "simple." 🙂 Appreciative for any feedback or guidance. Use Case: I want to be able to open any folder (repo) one level below my "GitHub" folder in both Atom and Terminal. The number of folders (repos) within the "GitHub" folder changes wildly as I add and remove repos. I created a Workflow using a File Filter that limits the search to type "folder" within the "GitHub" folder. I can successfully pass t
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.

It also works to change the extension to mdtxt or mdown Just to be sure, I added a different filetype .taskpaper to check that I didn't bungle something easy - and that showed up just fine.
