Strange Tab Completion Behavior


Recommended Posts

This is not a bug, it's the expected behavior. Alfred's tab completion logic for folders is the same as those used by Terminal.


Here's a breakdown of how it works:

  • Since "User Information", "Users", and "usr" all start with "us", pressing tab will do nothing (except maybe change the input to lowercase)
  • If you were to type "Use" and press tab, you'd get "User" because "User Information" and "Users" both start with "User"
  • If you were to type "User " (followed by a space) and press tab, you'd get "User Information" because it's the only choice that starts with your input.

I submitted a feature request related to this behavior (because I personally don't care for it  ;))
