Search Ulysses III from Alfred

Recommended Posts

I made a workflow to search the Ulysses database for the new Ulysses III. This feature is missing from the app itself (for now) so I put together this workflow to get around that. The workflow simply adds search scopes for Ulysses' "sheet" and "group" filetypes. As a bonus, there's also an "Open in Ulysses" File Action included with the workflow. It works on .txt and .rtf documents, which will come into Ulysses parsed as Markdown.

Hmm. I just tested this and it's working on my end. Is this still happening?


It is working on my iMac. I will have to see what is going on in my MacBook.


Nice! Although, for some reason, I had to limit the scope to the Ulysses 3 container for it to work. Otherwise, it wasn't finding anything.


I had to do the same and if you have an external source you also have to add it.

It seems to be because the ~/Library/Containers folder isn't in the default Alfred search scope. I guess you could add the whole Containers folder to the default scope, but that might muddy up all searches too much.
