[SOLVED] Why does Alfred not show the workflow, but the AppleScript?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the absolute beginner question. 

I've installed some workflows that launch AppleScripts.

Now if I press the Alfred hotkey and type the name of the workflow, Alfred offers to launch the original AppleScript file, but not the workflow itself.

Why should I want this? Well, because I want to see the pretty icons I added to the workflow.

But also because I want to understand the concept better and think I'm missing something.

You have to type workflows’ keywords into Alfred, not the names of the workflows.


Keywords are assigned in Script Filters, List Filters and Keyword triggers.
