Workflows aren't matched when typing

Recommended Posts

Hi all -

 

I wanted to post about an issue I've been seeing for a while that I can't seem to figure out. When I type in Alfred to launch / use a workflow I often seem an issue where workflows aren't match and don't work -- apps and applescripts end up being selected instead.

 

It's easier to show an example: http://neil.io/MjWh

 

Here I'm trying to trigger the "Top Processes" workflow to kill an application. The workflow shows up as I start to type, but when I finish typing the trigger ("kill") it disappears.

 

I've seen this for many other workflows as well, 

 

Any ideas?

Usually, this is the result of a script filter failing.

Open Alfred Preferences and find the workflow in question; then hit the little bug icon in the upper right. Now run the workflow and see what comes out

Note that workflow debugging is only available in Alfred v2.2 and above
