Workflow to Open With works for one app but not for another

Recommended Posts

Just migrating to Alfred from Quicksilver and stumbled on to a weird issue.


I created a Workflow to open a PDF file (selected in Finder) with PDFPen Pro (instead of Preview) using ALT+CMD+DownArrow. That way, using just CMD+DownArrow enables me to open the selected PDF in Preview and the hotkey enables me to open it in PDFPen Pro, if that's what I need.


Works perfectly.


Duplicated the workflow and set a new trigger and a new app: CMD+RightArrow to open the selected file in TextWrangler. Nothing happens. At all. Tried a bunch of hotkey combos, still nothing.


Why should it work for one app but not the other? Any settings hidden somewhere that need tweaking?
