Right arrow isn't showing the Action Panel

I've just installed Alfred 2 with the powerpack.

 

 

# What you were doing when the issue happened:
 
I checked the Features/file search/navigation/:
"Shortcuts: Use <- and -> for folder navigation"
 
After un-checking it, the right arrow doesn't show the action panel.
e.g.
After invoking Alfred2 I type:
[space] documents
I then down arrow once to select 'Users/dan/Documents
then the right arrow does nothing. It did, I'm sure - before I checked and then un-checked the setting described above - show the action panel. It now does nothing.
 
 
# Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action
Yes, I can.
 
# Include any screenshots that might help us
The following screen shots shows the settings
 
# Include the Alfred version & build number you are using
V2.0.3 (187)
 
# Include your OS X version
10.8.3

Turn on your action panel, it does this on my machine as well, matter a fact i had this happen several times. Basically, the default key is the right arrow for the action panel, and you cannot have the navigation key using that same key. BUT you can enable the right arrow for the action panel (not navigation) and double tap the right key for searching the path you want. Personally, i leave it on control so i can use the arrow keys without double tapping for the file search but it's all preference.

Here is what i'm saying...

thanks for your reply... I think I understand a bit better: 

 

checking the following option:

 

Shortcuts: Use <- and -> for folder navigation"

 

deselected the 'show actions with right arrow' in the actions settings.

 

When I un-checked the 1st option it didn't reset the 2nd one (which I hadn't noticed).

 

Anyway... I'm back how I wanted to be... not a bug, more a complicated (to me at least) set of customisable settings.

 

Thanks again.

Well, like i said, you can use the same key for both the action panel and navigation, you just have to double tap to navigate into the path you want, as a way to remember without using the crtl and arrow key which is more muscle memory. Glad to help, it IS confusing, personally i wish the font was slightly bigger or darker near the tick boxes because what is written there is pretty important and should not be overlooked.
