Search Contacts by nickname and lastname

Recommended Posts

When you're searching by contacts, the search doesn't deal with nicknames well.


For instance, I have a contact whose first name is Thomas, but his nickname is in there as Tom.


It would be nice to be able to type "Tom <last name>". Right now, if you type "Tom", it finds him, but the moment you put the space there, it doesn't work.

I'm not so sure that there isn't something wonky with your contacts metadata. Searching nickname and last name works perfectly on my personal machine. This post was created for Alfred v1 but should still apply. Try rebuilding your Address Book metadata. See the post here. Afterwards, try searching again and let me know of your results please sir.
