Option: suffixes instead of prefixes

This is actually really nice - now that I'm used to Drafts on iOS where one starts with text and acts on it.  I had ignored the thread the first time round but I need to give this a try on a regular basis.

 

What would it take to allow execution of keywords / list filters / script filters as well?  Ideally I'd like to set up a whitelist of a half dozen or so that I could use, leaving all other disabled.  Frequently I'll use searches to locate a book in libraries, for example, then run a workflow to download the citation and add it to BibDesk.

Agree. There are definitely some cases where it's a really good fit.

Parsing your workflows' info.plist files to find them, grabbing their icons, and the whitelist. You'd also want to cache the data, as it'd take a relatively long time to parse the dozens of files.

 

It should be easy enough to pass the right-way-round command back to Alfred. The chief snag would be that running the command would put an extra item in your history, so you'd have to double-tab ↑ to get back to your reverse query.

Drafts on iOS is awesome. I've been using it for years. I don't think I've ever actually entered anything directly in Reminders.

 

I don't really get the macOS version, though. It doesn't have any actions as far as I can tell, which seems to make it … well … not Drafts.

 

Perhaps it's supposed to replace nvAlt and the like?
