  1. Is it possible to create a file filter that operates as if each word in a query has a wildcard in front of it? For example, let's say I have a file filter set up as follows: (1) Keyword is "pdf", (2) File Types set to PDFs, and (3) Search Scope set to ~/Documents/SmallFolder. Is it possible to change the file filter's Advanced settings so that the following Alfred search: pdf SearchTerm1 SearchTerm2 SearchTerm3 approximates the following input: pdf *SearchTerm1 *SearchTerm2 *SearchTerm3 In other words, when using a specific file filter, I'd like to avoid having to manually type a hyphen in front of each search term. I understand why you wouldn't want this to be the default behavior in Alfred, but I was hoping to create some file filters that work in this manner (on small folders, etc., so that they're not too system-intensive). @deanishe has a nice fuzzy folder search, which is robust enough to do a lot of the same things, but I was just wondering how to mimic the wildcard search described above. I've never quite understood how many of the options in the File Filter's Advanced tab work (beyond simply adding more Metadata Files that are not included by default), and I was hoping there was a way to change these settings to achieve what I've described above. Initially, I thought that (1) unchecking the "words" column, and (2) unchecking the "Anchor searches which are not word based" would have the same effect. However, I'm not receiving the same result as when I use wildcards. Thanks for any help you can lend!
