Alfred v2 tab completion rogue trailing space [Fixed v2.0.7 b204 pre-release]

Recommended Posts

Recently switched from Alfred v1 to Alfred v2, running v2.0.6 (203).

 

I have a number of custom searches that aren't queries, but lean more toward bookmarks.  For example, keyword "webmail" maps to URL "https://webmail.myprovider.com/".

 

In Alfred v1, when I type "webm<Tab>", Alfred tab-completes this to "webmail", and then pressing <Return> opens the configured URL in my browser.

 

In Alfred v2, when I type "webm<Tab>", Alfred tab-completes this to "webmail " (with a trailing space).  Since there's no query for the "webmail" custom search, Alfred interprets "webmail<Space>"  as a fallback search for the word 'webmail', which is not at all what I want.

 

I've been using these custom searches for something like the last year, and my muscle memory is fairly deeply ingrained by now.

 

Any chance Alfred v2 can be smarter about its tab-completion?

 

Thanks.

Hmm, you are quite right, this doesn't seem to be the correct behaviour in v2. I'll add a ticket to look into it for the next release.

 

You shouldn't need to tab autocomplete before pressing return on these though, just press return :)

This was added in v2.0.7 b204, which is currently in pre-release so if you update, you'll be able to test that this is working as expected :)
