Workflow Description With this little workflow, you can select a bunch of files, trigger the workflow (hotkey or keyword) and type in the comments you’d like to add. The extension allows for a default action when encountering existing spotlight comments, as well as interactive mode and parameter options (more on that later). Installation and Setup Download and import. As for setup, there isn’t much to it. Simply define what your desired default action should be when encountering existing comments. Change property defaultOverwrite : "append" accordingly. Possible options are append, replace and interactive. Extension Usage Triggering the extension and entering text without any of the following parameters will default the the behaviour discussed above, with the exception of delete of course. -d — Will remove any spotlight comment from the selected files; -a — Will append to existing comments; -r — Will replace existing comments; -i — Will function interactively allowing you to decide on a file by file basis. It will display the existing comment to facilitate your decision too There is no need to leave any space after the parameter but you can do so if you prefer (it will be stripped from the begging)
Hi! So, here I am again with another question regarding Spotlight comments... I had a little issue with Spotlight comments after switching from Alfred 1 to Alfred 2, but those were resolved with build 2.0.2 (180) - thanks again to Andrew for the instant fix! Now Alfred 2 finds all my files, apps and folders with the corresponding Spotlight comment when I do a regular search. But there's one thing that doesn't work for me - I can't get Alfred 2 to recognize Spotlight comments in the "move to..." actions menu. To be more specific: All my folders have Spotlight comments (abbreviations mostly, like "ss" for "screenshots" and so on) and with Alfred 1 I was able to do the following: in Alfred's actions menu I would choose "move to..." and then type "ss" into the search field. Alfred 1 would present me the correct folder ("screenshots") instantly and I could move the file to that folder. Alfred 2 on the other hand doesn't recognize any Spotlight comments in the "move to..." actions menu, he has no idea what I want when I type "ss" (or another Spotlight comment). I don't know if this is a bug or if it's expected behavior in Alfred 2 - but it would be totally awesome if that version 1 feature could be brought back to Alfred Of course I know this is not something that belongs on the "high priority"-list, most folks will probably never use a Spotlight comment in the "move to..." menu. But I still wanted to mention it here because I always thought it's a really useful feature. Thanks and cheers, Anna OS X 10.8.3 Alfred v2.0.3 (187)
