Option to hide fallback searches.

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to hide Alfred fallback searches so it does not confuse the user with the results of a workflow query.



First example: DeepL-Translate (results of the translation of the word "food" from EN to DE). Readability is not optimal.




Second example : A workflow by Tyler Eich that displays applications, operating system versions. No fallback search is displayed. Better readability according to me 😀

@politicus Take a look at Features > Default Results, and choose "Only show fallbacks when there are no results" rather than including intelligently.

This is up to the user to set to their own preference rather than the workflow creator :)

I feel so stupid I didn't look at this option in  the settings before asking the question. In my mind, I had looked at this setting loooooong time ago and it was not an option I EVER could be interested in. So I didn't before asking the question. 🙄 


You are right, it make sense to let the user set to their own preference, not the workflow creator.
