How to pass "name:XXX" into Mac finder?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I may be missing something easy in the default search or workflows, but I'd like to type the name of a document into Alfred which would pass the search to finder using 'name:documentname' format. To be more clear, I want to see the results in Finder, not in the Alfred window. For example, If I have several drafts of a document called ''AlfredIsCoolv1', AlfredIsCoolv2', 'AlfredIsCoolv3', I'd like to type something like "Find AlfredIsCool" into Alfred and have all the documents containing this textstring show up in Finder.


Now, I open finder, type in "name:AlfredIsCool" to get the results I want.  Any help?
