After a short discussion in this thread (with @PopSquirrel) I decided to create a workflow that allows me to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. I've included the full HOW TO USE below. Download TEMPLATE - File Search with Custom Actions from my GitHub Note: This workflow doesn't do anything "out of the box". It's a template that you can use to create your own customised actions. Examples of usage: Call a File Action workflow without go to the File Action menu. I use this with RenameAction (by @vitor) Use it with basically any workflow that takes a path as input. I use it this way with Open in Finder Tab (by @mix1009) Open a file with a specified app. I have Preview as default app for images, therefore I've added an Open File with Photoshop-action Get creative and comment below Screenshot from my configuration of the workflow: HOW TO USE This workflow allowes you to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. This is a template workflow - you'll have to add your desired actions, modifers etcetera for the workflow to actually do anyting. Likewise you might want to change the keyword. Personally I use a the same as Alfreds default File Search, a single quote: ' The pink blocks gives you two different paths depedning on if you're actioning a file or folder. You might want to copy these to use with other modifiers as well.
Context: * When using the File Buffer, alt is the default modifier and pressing alt + backspace removes all items from the buffer. * When the "Compatibility: Use shift+alt as modifier key" toggle is checked, shift + alt is required to interact with the buffer. Current Behavior: When the "Compatibility" toggle is checked... - pressing alt + backspace still removes all items from the buffer, with or without pressing the shift key Expected Behavior: When the "Compatibility" toggle is checked... - pressing alt + backspace should not remove items from the buffer - pressing shift + alt + backspace would remove all items from the buffer Alfred version & build number: 2.7.1 (387) OS X version: Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46) Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/76tB5xc.png
For advanced workflows it would be nice to be able to specify *combinations* of modifier keys when specifying action modifiers for workflow connections. For instance, allow an action modifier based on holding down *both* the Option and the Shift key. (I know there's potential for conflict with global hotkeys, such as Cmd-Opt-Return for the iTunes mini player.) Currently (Alfred 2.0.3), you're limited to a single modifier key.
