This has always been something that bothered me. I'd love if if I could preview/navigate the search results just like you can on Finder. In finder you press space (or what ever) to preview and then you can use arrow keys to move to another file without having to close and open the preview window in between. If I'm trying to find a file based on the visual contents in Alfred I have to basically: Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) Arrow Down Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) Arrow down Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) and so on
The new-ish quicklookurl feature in the JSON feedback only works with URLs. The "standard" Quick Look feature (i.e. using arg) also works with filepaths. IMO, quicklookurl should also work with filepaths. It's a very handy feature, and not having it reduces the utility of quicklookurl considerably.
Using Alfred 2.8.2 currently, but this issue has been around for a long time for me. In Alfred's File Search mode, when I try to Quick Look a selected item using Shift, the Quick Look window opens behind the Alfred window. If I click on the Quick Look window it doesn't come to the foreground. If I click on the Alfred window the Quick Look window disappears. This happens every single time.
I activated Quick Look, changed spaces via 3-finger swipe (which hid Quick Look), and returned to the original space. Alfred was still visible on that space and would not toggle when I pressed Cmd-Space or Esc. I had to click on him to restore proper focus behavior. Alfred v2.0 (131) on OS X 10.8.2. Replicated: Yes
