Hi, since Mavericks introduced tabs in Finder it would be really cool if I could open new folders via "open" and "find" in a new finder tab instead of a completely new finder window. Since updating to Mavericks I have put finder in fullscreen mode and just open new tabs for new folders, it would be cool if Alfred could help me in this way.
Opening a Folder via an Apple Script workflow fails on OS X 10.11 El Capitan Facts - fails for - working - workflows unchanged from Yosemite - fails for most but not all workflows - workflows are activated by shortcut - workflows are Apple Scripts shown below - for all below workflows the destination folders *do* exist and are standard, non-hidden, non-system folders that were successfully opened by Alfred on Yosemite. Example of FAILING workflow on alfred_script(q) tell application "Finder" to activate tell application "Finder" to open ("/Users/<redacted>/Documents/MyDocs/People" as POSIX file) end alfred_script Example of SUCCESSFUL workflow [same system, same user, etc] on alfred_script(q) tell application "Finder" to activate tell application "Finder" to open ("/Users/<redacted>/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData" as POSIX file) end alfred_script
Hey guys! I'm pretty new to Alfred in terms of developing workflows. I have done a couple but nothing notable. The idea is I am trying to display what is in my root folder, which is where I house all the folders I use for development. Then whichever one I selected would open in Sublime Text (ST3). I thought I could get something from this recent downloads workflow because it displays the downloads folder in alfred, but I don't know ruby. If I could display the root folder like this and then whichever one I selected would open in ST3 that would be great. I also thought this Open in Sublime Text workflow would help but I don't know AppleScript either. I do have some experience with PHP however. Any help would be awesome!
