Ability to specify a file path for file filters


Recommended Posts

The file filter uses Spotlight for searching for the file filter query. It would be nice to be able to enter paths and get completion support, e.g.:


'upload <some filename I hope was indexed by Spotlight'




'upload ~/Desktop/<get completion support for files and directories in ~/Desktop'

You could use a File Action instead of File Filter and then use it like this:


'~/Desktop/a_file.txt upload'


(Use file navigation to find the file and then use your File Action)


Yep, and I do this already. If I'm focused on the file that works fine, but if I'm focused on the action I can't do it the opposite way.

I can understand your wanting it but I don't understand the, being focused on the file or the action explanation. What you're asking for could still essentially be done using the File Navigation feature. Pop up Alfred, type ~/Desktop/etc.. and it allows you to complete the file path and names and such and then just use an "Upload" action, same as Jonas suggested
