Feature Request: Show Hidden/Invisible Files in File Search

Recommended Posts

Version: Alfred 4.1 [1167]


I would like to be able to toggle file visibility from Alfred's file explorer, or from the "File Search" tab in Alfred-Preferences. As far as I can tell, Alfred cannot see invisible files at all*. Is this a safety precaution or a feature I somehow missed? Even in Finder, it's just a matter of pressing "shift+cmd+."...


* Edit: While Alfred can see files marked hidden by `chflags hidden {filename}`,  it can't see filenames prefixed with a "." (as in `~/.bashrc`)  -- at least, not in any straightforward way that I'm aware of.
