Cannot Select Sync via Dropbox Apps Folder on a New Computer (Yes I know about the restriction)

Recommended Posts

Setting up a new computer and want to sync my Alfred preferences. I've always use the Apps folder and yes I know about the restriction. In the past this always fixed it:

defaults write com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-Preferences-3 dropbox.allowappsfolder -bool TRUE

However it is not working on the new machine. I even tried changing the above to Preferences-4 and it still did not work. My other machine is still synching fine. Any idea what I need to do on the new machine to allow Alfred to load my synced preferences from the Apps folder?

Alfred 4 no longer uses version suffixes on its files, so it would be com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-Preferences with no number.


No idea if what you're trying will work, though.

Yes! That worked. Thank you so much.
