Alfred is not able to find contact card with "í", if is written only "i". Spotlight does.

@Radek Salomon This is a limitation of the macOS Address Book API Alfred uses. In the future, he'll be updated to use the Contacts API which will allow for diacritics.


Alfred has an option (visible to Powerpack users) but off the top of my head, it is also available to non-Powerpack users if you edit the plist file in the following location:


/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/preferences/features/defaultresults/prefs.plist


The plist needs to include the showContactsUsingMetadata key set to true, as per below:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">


If you have a Powerpack, this option is in Alfred's Preferences:


Prefs > Features > Contacts > Advanced > Use Spotlight metadata for searching contacts
