Debugger not closing [intentional improvement in v5]

I found a situation where the debugger window doesn’t close properly. Step to repeat are:

 

  1. Create a workflow
  2. Click the debugger icon
  3. Delete the workflow

 

At this point you see the startup screen in the middle with the debugger window still open. Just a cosmetic problem and not a critical issue.

This is an intentional improvement in Alfred 5 - The Debugger can remain open regardless of whether you are editing a workflow or not.

 

You'll notice that you'll even be able to open Alfred's preferences to the Workflow tab, and without even selecting a workflow, open the Debugger from the bottom of the window (or using ⌘D) and see the debug output of all workflows.

I know it was intentional to allow it to be open going from one workflow to another, but I would assume the deletion of a workflow would necessitate the closing of the window. But, that is my opinion.

The debugger now operates independently to the Workflow editor and selection, much like in Xcode, and is always available as a bar at the bottom of the Workflow tab (which can be toggled or dragged up at any time).

 

When deleting a workflow, you'll get the same behaviour as deselecting a Workflow in the list, and the debugger switches to the "All Workflow" context.

 

This is the intentional improvement in v5.
