I would love to start using Alfred’s file buffer more often, especially with some of the nice additions made in Alfred 4. However, Alfred is in dire need of better Finder-Buffer integration.

1°) What was I doing when the issue happened? - Was trying to add .rar files to Alfred's Buffer on my Mac Mini. Failed. - Tried the same action on my MacBook.

Hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing could make something better. http://www.packal.org/workflow/buffer-finder This is in response to requests from this forum:
