Showing results for tags 'file type'.
I think there're two aspects where Alfred can improve: 1. Allow user to search for content in the files in a specific folder (i.e. before using 'in' function, user can assign a specific folder as the search scope) 2. Allow user to specify the file type for search. For example, search pdf only in a specific folder. I understand that these functions can be implemented by making workflows, but it's hard for non technical person like me to create one. I wish that these would be built-in function or in the sample workflows.
Since this is what I think the standard way to set an environment variable from a Script Filter, I think this should be working, but feel free to move this post to the feature request if this the normal behaviour and not a bug. When building a workflow that works with files and folders, I like to allow to run actions on those files/folders. So, since the File Action is made for that, I like to just activate it on my script filter output item by using my File Action shortcut (sets to cmd-cmd in my case).

I removed and re-added the folder. 4) File permissions: I set all the files in the folder (and the folder itself) to Chmod 777. 5) I rebuilt the
For me it would be great to run a special File Action for "*.sublime-project" files just by pressing enter, without explicitly selecting a File Action using right-arrow or a workflow prefix. Description: 1. find a ".sublime-project" file using the normal fuzzy File Search 2. hit enter 3. run my custom sublime File Action / workflow Alfred can already move your custom File Actions to the top with "Sort action by last used per file type". An extra checkbox for implicitly executing the top-most action just by pressing enter is maybe enough to enable this feature. This is helpful when u
