Alfred 4 can't find applications

Recommended Posts

I upgraded from A3 to A4 today cause the I can't really find any files except for applications in the previous version.  However, when I upgraded to A4 everything was fixed except that the applications no longer shows up in the search bar.  I've tried cleaning the cache, reindexing and it didn't work.

Hello. I don't know if it's directly related to the OP but since upgrading to Alfred 4 (and migrating preferences and workflows), Alfred doesn't find applications in subfolders anymore (e.g. /Application/DaVinci Resolve/DaVinci Resolve.app). Spotlight does so without issue. Is there a preference I should tick anew somewhere?


EDIT: Fixed by searching for the app with Spotlight, launching it, and trying again after around 30 minutes. Weird but hey.

Are you using macOS 10.15 beta now? I think you have the same problem as me. You need to manually add /System/Applications to the Search Scope list in Preferences - > Features -> Default Results (thanks to scaba).



Just registered to say thank you! :)

Alfred 4 blew up here to. but it all seems to be nice and happy here !
