Good day, OK, I am trying to figure out why Alfred will not find a phrase in a pdf that Spotlight finds successfully. So far, I have done the following: Confirmed that Spotlight can do the search successfully. Using the "in" keyword in Alfred, verified that Alfred cannot do the search. I've confirmed my Spotlight prefs are searching pdfs. I've used the "rebuild Mac OS X metadata" from the Alfred control panel. I've waited for the mdimport tasks to complete. I've reset the Alfred search cache. I've entered various terminal commands to rebuild the indices as well. I've pulled out some of my hair and wasted hours of my life looking for additional solutions. I've begun to think about sacrificing a spotless goat and sprinkling it's blood on my keyboard (OK, no I haven't..at least, not recently,) I've worked on this issue on and off for about three months. I'm using Alfred 2.3 (264) without PowerPack, on Mavericks 10.9.3. At this point, I'm ready to seek professional help (both tech support and psychological). Any suggestions/tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated. These links go to screenshots of: The Spotlight search results The Alfred search results The Alfred search preferences The Alfred results preferences So, what am I missing?? Thanks for any help/counseling you can provide. -->John
Is there any way to filter the contents of a folder? For instance, if I browse to a folder in Alfred, then I want to only show the files that END with the word "Test", then how would I do that? Simply typing "Test" only shows files that BEGIN with that phrase.
