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.

Why would that be better than Search Preferences?

The two do not conflict.

 

If it is already on the workflow tab. it's better.

+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.

I've just added in a ⇧⌘F shortcut in preferences which will highlight the Workflows filter field. I've actually made this global within the preferences too, so if you're not in the workflow tab, the shortcut will switch to the workflows tab, then focus the field.

 

This will be in the next release.
