Excluding hidden mac files from a search

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


Fairly new to Alfred :)


When I search for documents Alfred pulls back hidden files. Is this normal? At least for PowerPoint files. So the file will start with "~$" (see image below). Normally these files aren't viewable in Finder unless you have view hidden files enabled - but it appears PowerPoint creates them - I think when autosaving.


Anyway, is it possible to not see invisible file when searching? 


Many Thanks

I encounter the same problem! Appreciated if anyone can help to solve this issue, since it makes the searching list very long and hard to negotiate.
