Bug when searching Contacts with parentheses ( )

Recommended Posts

Bug summary: When using the default contacts search method (Contacts API) strings contained in parentheses `(` & `)` are not found. Switching to the Spotlight Metadata method in Advanced settings is a partial workaround but that has other unwanted side-effects**

 

* What you were doing when the issue happened

 

Searching for a contact named "The Real Deal (TRD)" using the query "TRD"


* Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action

 

Yes, always.


* Include any screenshots that might help us

 

Searching "TRD" in Alfred:

* Include the Alfred version & build number you are using
 

Alfred 3.7.1 (946)

 

* Include your OS X version

 

macOS 10.14.3 (18D42)

 

____________________________________________

** Seems to be more of a macOS bug: I have a Google account (with "contacts" DISABLED) on my Mac but macOS still seems to download/sync this to an "AddressBook-v22.abcddb" file in the background, and the data is getting indexed and returned in Alfred—which causes duplicate results to be displayed.
