Search for PDFs

Recommended Posts

This workflow requires Alfred 5.5 (or later). It makes use of both the new Grid View and the new PDF View in Alfred 5.5.  As the workflow is based on Alfred 5.5 beta there may be changes to the workflow during the beta phase of Alfred 5.5 following changes made in the beta.

The workflow searches for PDF files in a folder within Alfred's default search scope. You select the folder and the workflow displays thumbnails of the PDF files from that folder in a grid. In essence the use is exactly the same as that for the Search for JPEGs workflow—with one significant difference. When viewing the thumbnail of a single PDF in Alfred's new PDF View (i.e., after selecting it in Grid View) you can press fn↓ and fn↑ to move through the pages of the PDF. Of course, when highlighting a PDF file in Grid View or viewing it in PDF View you can open it with your default PDF viewer using ⌘O (“O” for “open”)—and also by using in PDF View. There are full instructions in the workflow ReadMe.

This workflow has no dependencies.
