  1. While this isn't strictly speaking a bug, I don't think when people select the "Recursive" option to "Act on directory contents" for the Automation Tasks of tags (e.g., Add Tags, Remove Tags, Clear Tags) that they intend this to apply to the contents of packages. For instance, if you use the "Add Tags" Automation Task, and select the "Recursive" option, when it's applied to an application, it will actually add the tag to the invisible contents of the application, too - which could cause problems, and seems like overkill. I'm sure there are a bunch of ways to fix this, but it'd probably be easiest to do a quick content tree check for "com.apple.package" - which is broad enough to catch applications, bundles, kernel extensions and most things you wouldn't want Alfred thumbing through - and to only apply/remove/clear the tags of children of files that don't contain it. In other words, if it's a package, Alfred should just behave as if the user had not selected the recursive option (i.e., applying/removing/clearing the tags of the package but NOT its children/contents). If you need any more info, just let me know. Cheers! PS: I'm on Tasks Version 2022.14 (Last Checked Sep 13, 2022, 4:06 PM) & Alfred 5.0.2
