Alfred only finds some Apps


Recommended Posts

I'm a new user, just purchased and installed today.

Alfred can't find Calendar, Calculator, Clock, Contacts, FaceTime, Notes, etc.  None of the standard, installed, default, MacOS apps.

It does find all the other apps that I've installed that are in the same folder Macintosh HD --> Applications.

Spotlight can find all of these apps.

It's also finding apps that I don't want it to find.  These are in my ~\Applications (Parallels) folder.  Any way to remove them from Alfred?

@timurray2000  Welcome to the forum :)

 

Sounds like you might need to rebuild your Mac's index if apps aren't being correctly returned (even if they appear in Spotlight).

 

Take a look at the indexing troubleshooting page for all the details (step 5 shows you how to rebuild the index):

https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/

 

With regards to excluding apps from Parallels, there may be a way to tell Parallels not to make proxy apps, which would be the best way. Alternatively, you can drag the Parallels apps folder to the Spotlight Privacy tab. You can then type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache.

 

Let me know how you get on.

@timurray2000 Interesting, there have been a couple of people reporting this indexing issue, and we've been able to replicate it on one of our testing Macs, so we'll be investigating.

 

I've edited my reply below to clarify the order of operations:

 

1. Delete the Spotlight-V100 file located here, which is equivalent to checking the "Delete Spotlight-V100" box during the standard reindex:

/System/Volumes/Data/.Spotlight-V100

 

2. Next, open Terminal manually and paste in the following:

sudo mdutil -E -i on /

 

Let me know how you get on. :)

Another symptom is that I have to add file types of applications such as Pages, Keynote, Affinity Designer before it can find any of those files.image.thumb.png.55a678637b0dc29cd6ece7bc42360b60.png

@timurray2000 Could you please use Alfred's File Troubleshooter and drag a few files in? I'd be very interested in seeing what the metadata for your files looks like.

 

Here's how you can do this:

https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/

 

"Unknown indexing state" indicates that there's something wrong with the underlying macOS index. Have you tried restarting your Mac and following the steps I'd provided again?

@timurray2000 As suspected, the index on your Mac is corrupted and files aren't being correctly indexed by macOS. To be clear, this is an issue with the OS and not with Alfred.

 

If you try restarting your Mac then attempt to rebuild the index again, do you still see the unknown indexing state error?

Link to comment

I have reindexed multiple times using different methods.  Nothing has worked.

I'm trying this method again: https://matthewcassinelli.com/how-to-fix-recents-finder-macos-ventura-spotlight-index-terminal/

 

I have not rebooted since installing Alfred but I will do that after the current reindexing is complete.  It takes a few hours.

On my MacBook Pro M1, I haven't had any of these problems.

 

What about the strange permissions error I get when I click "Rebuild MacOS Metadata"?  This happens when I click "Rebuild" regardless of whether the check box is checked.

How do I determine that?

 

As previously, drag a file to the File Troubleshooter and see if you get the yellow warning that the indexing state is unknown. If it is, it means that Spotlight's index may not be complete, resulting in incomplete results being provided to Alfred.

 

Did you eventually manage to get a rebuild completed in Terminal?

Link to comment

I removed the "user-defined file types" of Pages, Keynote, Numbers.

I can find most Pages files but not this one.  It's located in the same folder as others which I can find.

It won't find it if I just type <hotkey>Prayer or if I type <hotkey><space>prayer

 

I also attached the output of "Binder Backing" because it does find that file.

 

If I add the Pages file type back to the config.

I can find <hotkey>Prayer

But I can't find <hotkey><space>Prayer

 

Keynote Files - not currently in "user-defined"

It finds them as <hotkey><space> but not just with <hotkey>

 

Makes no sense to me.

@timurray2000 Could you please use Alfred's File Troubleshooter and drag a few files in? I'd be very interested in seeing what the metadata for your files looks like.

 

Here's how you can do this:

https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/

 

"Unknown indexing state" indicates that there's something wrong with the underlying macOS index. Have you tried restarting your Mac and following the steps I'd provided again?

 

Hello! I found this thread while researching what I believe is a very similar, if not the same, issue. I'm running MacOS 13.0, on a 13-inch 2020 MacBook Pro.

I've attached a screenshot of my preferences window.

- If I search for: Messages, Calendar, Clock, Notes, Reminders, Contacts, nothing is returned.

- If I search for: Safari, Spotify, Firefox, and basically every other application I've installed (including while this problem was on going, specifically MuseScore 3 and 4), they are returned.

At first I thought it might be isolated to built-in applications, but Safari coming back dampens my theory on that one.

 

I tried rebuilding the index, watched the progress bar through Spotlight and made sure if finished. Reloaded the Alfred Cache using `reload`. I have not restarted as I am in a meeting, but I will as soon as I get the chance.

 

I have not been able to find Alfred's File Troublehshooter you mentioned, which gives back a detailed report on specific files. I would like to do this myself with a few things to see if I have similar errors.
