Hotkey support


Recommended Posts

I think hotkey should enhance, because it improve productivity.

 

When active on any workflow and hotkey- F, cursor should move to Filter input.

Besides, ⌘ 1-6 change tab is perfect if support it.

 

 

New ideas

 

When workflow active, I think shortkey for env setting/export/remote. like ⌘ E

+1. At the very least, it should be possible to use a keyboard shortcut to put focus on the Workflow Filter input.

 

This is preferable over the Alfred-wide Search Preferences because:

  1. There's already a dedicated input field for this purpose.
  2. Limiting scope to workflows enhancing the productivity of this interface.

For example, if I wanted to find all of my "Toolkit" Workflows, this is what Search Preferences yields, which searches inside of workflows:

In contrast, I only want to see the Workflows themselves:

I realized that it was silly that this doesn't already work this way, so I went ahead and made a Workflow to enable this! (Note, this will only work when Workflows are visible).

Download Filter Alfred Workflows

 

Maybe @Andrew can fix this in the next build and/or add more accessibility features to make it easier to script the UI since the sidebar is a custom UI component that isn't accessible via AppleScript.

I totally agree with that. It’s ⌘F focussing a different field dependent on context in the same view that I think is somewhat questionable.

 

It should be a different shortcut, imo, say ⇧⌘F.
