  1. I love using Alfred to browse folders, and would like to extend the same functionality to other types of files. Is there a way to create a File Action that triggers Alfred's Browse feature for the folder housing whatever file has been selected from the search results? For example, let's say that I have a folder on my desktop called "Folder 1" that houses several PDFs. When using Alfred, if one of the PDFs came up in my search results, I'd love to use a file action on that PDF to effectively trigger Alfred's browse function on Folder 1. In an ideal world, it might operate something like the "reveal in finder" file action, except that it would do the same thing within Alfred's file browser (placing you within the parent folder and highlighting the file/folder/etc that you selected, so that you know where the file is located in the folder). However, I'd settle for the file action that just opens the parent folder. I created a simple File Action trigger, and attached the Browse in Alfred action. However, it passes the full file path to the browser - showing the parent folder, but narrowed only to the selected file. Is there a way to create a file action that works like the ones described above? In the simplest iteration, I'd need to pass the folder structure to a Browse in Alfred action (i.e., without the file name). Using the example above, if I selected "filename1.pdf" from my search results (/Users/username/Desktop/Folder 1/filename1.pdf), I'd need a way to pass only the following path to Alfred's Browser: /Users/username/Desktop/Folder 1/. In other words, how do I get from /Users/username/Desktop/Folder 1/filename1.pdf to only /Users/username/Desktop/Folder 1/ ?? Does anybody know how to do this (or the more complicated - reveal in Finder, like version described above)? As always, thanks for your help!
  2. Hey everyone! My first post so please be nice! I am running the latest version of Alfred 3 on Mac OS X Sierra. I'm having a bit of an odd issue that am hoping someone on here can help me out with. For some reason when I use the browser feature in Alfred to navigate some networked volumes (SMB, off a NAS if it matters), it shows multiple different versions of the networked drive but only one is valid. The others have a red dash on them (the symbol Mac OS X uses to show you don't have correct permissions) and obviously they are empty. I have attached a screenshot for clarification. Anyone have an idea about how to clear these old ones out? I have already tried clearing the "cache" in the settings. I have not rebuilt the whole spotlight index as that is time and resource intensive. Before I try that, I wanted to see if anyone on here has any better ideas. Thanks. I appreciate the help!
  3. Hello everyone, I'm using Alfred at work for different paths on the Server. I'm doing so via a List Filter that contains all the Paths and passes them to the Action "Browse Alfred". The Paths look something like this: "/Volumes/pub/fdw/Project/ProjectNumber/ProjectNumberstuff/3_Electric/03_Konstruction/04_Presentations/" What I'd like to do is that i browse that path like this: "/Volumes/pub/fdw/Project/ProjectNumber/ProjectNumberstuff/3_Electric/03_Konstruction/04_Presentations/*1110" I can create the "*1110" or only "1110" which would be enough via another List Filter selection, but Alfred cannot browse that Folder as it doesn't exist in that way. Does anyone have another solution. P.S.: @Andrew It would be really nice if you could add a way to filder the List Filter in Alfred as its hard to find something with a lot of items. Cheers, Frozen
  4. I guess I should first ask, is there an alfred workflow to smoothly interact with emacs in terminal (not the emacs gui/application)? And now, please excuse my lack of general knowledge: I currently have a very simple workflow set up that browses alfred and runs the terminal command "emacs {query}" on enter. I was wondering how hard it would be to make a workflow that checks if terminal is already open with emacs running, and if so, actually open the query as a buffer in emacs. Another question, kind of related to this (so that i could do "emacs .emacs" and such): I understand Alfred doesn't show hidden files since spotlight doesn't index them, but is there a way to make a specific hidden file findable with spotlight/alfred? (I've heard there's a way to hide files from them by adding stuff to their comments, was basically wondering if the opposite is possible too.)
