something obvious I can't figure out regarding file actons

Recommended Posts

I've got the power pack and am finally digging into figuring Alfred out. I've also set the osx permission to allow it to access finder, but when I select a file then press Cmd + Alt + \  I don't get the file action pane that shows I can: copy to, move to, email, etc. I get a directory panel that as shown in pic. Something simple I'm doing wrong?

Wrong Hotkey. That's the navigation panel. Check which Hotkeys you have set in Alfred Preferences. The navigation Hotkey is called "Previous Path" under Features > File Search > Navigation, and the File Actions Hotkey is called "Selection Hotkey" under Features > Actions > General.

Thank you! Weird that following a tutorial on the blog it said that was that keyword, but out of the box install has that keyword for the last directory.


Now I just have to figure out how to add folder destinations in the "move to" dialogue.
