@vitor Thanks for this wonderful workflow! Probably the one I use the most!

 

I was wondering if you had the intention of adding an exclusion list? I have my Keyboard Maestro settings file in this folder and as it updates almost every day it appears at the top of the results. Of course, I could and certainly will move this file somewhere else. But still wanted to ask you this question as I suspect other interesting use cases for this feature 😀

I do not. I doubt many people would use it.

@vitor I would definitely echo @politicus statement about how awesome this workflow is! It's definitely near the top of my most used workflows.

 

Somewhat related to @politicus question about blacklisting items, is it possible to exclude temp/invisible items? I might be wrong, but the issue seems to be limited to Microsoft Word files. When I run your workflow, it always shows a handful of Word files that start with "~$". I notice them whether I run the workflow on my Downloads or Desktop folders, etc.

 

Thanks again for sharing the workflow!

Technically yes, but I’ve just tried it and there’s a severe speed tax due to having to check every file for the hidden flag, so I won’t implement it.

No problem - many thanks for taking at a stab at it though!

Update.


Fix showing directories other than ~/Downloads.


To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.
