Hi, I've created a basic workflow that searches the system's menu bar. After having used Sublime Text's command palette I wanted to have a similar system-wide functionality. EDIT: For people that haven't worked with Sublime Text's command palette: the command palette allows you to fuzzy search the entire application menu by keyboard. This saves both time on hunting down the right menu and saves you having to remember all sorts of keyboard shortcuts. For a brief introduction on Sublime Text's command palette see https://tutsplus.com/lesson/the-command-palette/ EDIT: Better use ctwise's "2.0" workflow http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1993-menu-search/ [old download is still available at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6259900/Menu%20bar%20search.alfredworkflow] The current workflow does not do any fuzzy searching and every keystroke executes the entire script again. My preferred fix to this would be to have a script input that is only executed once, and have Alfred do the subsequent fuzzy matching based on the initial result. Jeroen van der Neut @jvdneut
At this point, the only thing stopping me from using Alfred full time is the equivalent of the "UI Access" plugin in QuickSilver. The UI access plugin in QS allowed you to search through any menu item available in the current application. You can set up a hotkey using a proxy object (current application) and quickly type in commands that's available in the menu. I use this a lot in Photoshop, and a lot of other application where there are incredible amount of menu items that I don't feel like digging through each and every time. There is a workflow available right now that searches through the menu bar, but the workflow is really slow. I would love to see this feature just baked into Alfred.
