  1. I am having trouble with spotlight on my 2015 MBA 13. Running macOS 10.15.3. Someone suggested I use the Alfred metadata reset to trigger a reindex of spotlight. I am running Alfred 4.0.8 with powerpack. I started the process to reset meta data, and clicked on the option to delete the spotlight V100 file. When I got to the part where I authorise the deletion I got this result... Attempting to delete .Spotlight-V100... Password: rm: /System/Volumes/Data/.Spotlight-V100: Operation not permitted Requesting metadata reindex... It fails. The user account has ful
  2. 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
  3. OSX 10.15.1 Catalina Alfred 4.0.6 (1124) Alfred is no longer indexing some of my applications. It still shows the Apple apps (Photos, Music, etc.) however no third party apps are showing up. They are also not showing up in Spotlight either, so this must be a problem in general with Spotlight indexing. I've tried Advanced -> Clear Application Cache and Advanced -> Rebuild macOS Metadata, but none of those helps. (I have let "Rebuild MacOS Metadata" run overnight.) Also when I try the "Delete .Spotlight-V100 before reindex" I get the following error: "rm: /System/Volumes/
  4. Hi! iMac with 10.14 Mojave Alfred 3.7 Searching for .numbers file in local folder which is synced with icloud (nubmers folder). Sometimes the file shows up and sometimes it does not. It happens in Spotlight as well. Tried to index again but did not help. And later finding out my father has the same issue. This file is a shared one through icloud, not sure if that might be part of the issue? Thank you!
  5. I've asked this in the Apple Forums with no response, so I thought I'd ask here in case someone could shed some light on it. The problem actually started with newer apps being installed not coming up in Alfred search results. So, I went into Preferences and cleared the Application Cache, followed by Rebuild MacOS Metadata. This kicked off Spotlight indexing again, but when it finished I could no longer see any results for local applications, folders or files. All I get back are results from the Workflows and Features. I then checked the same in Spotlight, and got the sa
  6. Hi! I want to share a theme I made, it's not particularly original, but it better suits my taste Spacious Spacious Dark
  7. When I search for something in Alfred that Spotlight cannot immediately find, and then select Alfred's "Search spotlight..." option, I end up in a continuous loop that continues until I open a new Alfred dialogue. Please see movie: https://youtu.be/j_qOdBMzbrM. How can I fix this?
  8. Happy new year. I have a problem creating a filter I want to create a set of file filters that make it easy for me to find files created today, changed today, changed yesterday. Initially I tried to create spotlight saved search. (this used to work in older version of Mac OS) The problem with using spotlight search is I use microsoft outlook to read mail. It creates a ton of file in "~/Documents/Microsoft\ User\ Data/“ Spotlight search does not provide a way for you to prune results under a directory. You can go to setting spotlight private and add this director
  9. Hi, With the new Mac OS High Sierra, spotlight has drastically improved. The search function on spotlight is simply better than Alfred's. I was always a big proponent of Alfred to my business partner and now he's rubbing it in my face. What I like about spotlight is the file previews on the side but more importantly it just finds more stuff. It will find files based on tags, show you website suggestions, apple music and whole bunch of other things. Can one configure Alfred to do the same both in terms of the file previews and to make the search
  10. On Sierra I was able to set Command+Space as the shortcut for both Spotlight and Alfred and liked the way I could quickly cycle through them as demonstrated in my video Command Space for both Alfred and Spotlight I can not seem to do this on High Sierra though, as setting the shortcut is possible but when using the shortcut I only get Spotlight. Is there a workaround for this?
