Exclude folders and filetypes both globally and for file filters

2. A regex to subsequently filter by path, allowing path matches to be rejected.

 

 

That would be great (if it could include OR | type options).

I would like to place another vote for this.  Ability to exclude certain folders is my #1 request.  A nice to have would be to make "open x" only return folders as results and not individual files.  Thanks!

This is trivial to do with a File Filter. You can also assign a much shorter keyword than open. Mine is f.

@robertstrazz Following on from @deanishe's suggestion to use a file filter, here's a guide to creating your own file filter workflows:

You'll also find a pre-created file filter workflow built into Alfred in the Workflows preferences, press the + at the bottom of the sidebar > Examples > Simple Folder Search. :) 

 

Cheers,

Vero
