I can't get my File Filter workflow working on Catalina

Recommended Posts

I have file filter that searches for markdown files. Download of workflow.

 

Like this:

And the result of the search returns nothing.

Even though the file is actually seemingly indexed by Spotlight and Alfred does find it in global search.

I did try rebuilding of macOS metadata and it's been over 7 hours since I ran that command. I recently upgraded to Catalina so perhaps that is an issue. I did give all the rights to Alfred.

 

Thank you for the help. This is a crucial workflow for me and I hope I can get it to work again.

Yes it is being found. How do I unbreak the metadata? I tried to drag and drop the file to that window on Catalina and it recognized it as as this type.

As a side note, do you know why a markdown file can have this file type

I have to add it manually, I wonder if other files will have this messed up file type and if there is a way to fix it.

Because no proper UTI is defined for Markdown on your machine. The UTI isn't random. It means "extension=.md".

Thank you very much.

Setting Sublime Text as default app for markdown did fix it just for one file. Thought that would work for all the rest of them. Going to read up on that UTI business.

That did nothing. I ran it on a file that is also `dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a` and it stayed that way.

In the end I don't mind adding dyn.ah62d4rv4ge8043a to my file filters. It's good to know what it means, thanks for the clarification.
