Moving file fails silently when name contains grave accent [Fixed 2.4 b274]

Recommended Posts

Hello Alfred,

 

I gather you like your graves closed and I can understand that. But when trying to move files I would prefer it to work even for ones with grave accents in their name. Or at least let me know that you do not want to move such files. Thanks.

 

Regards, Ricco

 

Here is what Console has about that:

13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2: sh: bad substitution: no closing "`" in `s Twist Again.mp3"}
13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2:  move filenames to theDestinationFolder --with replacing
13.07.14 13:51:02,379 [0x0-0x22022].com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2:  end tell

Ah nicely spotted, I'll get this fixed in the next release. I do plan on generally improving all the file actions in the future too, with better feedback.

This should now be fixed in Alfred 2.4 b274 available as a beta build: http://blog.alfredapp.com/2014/07/25/alfred-v2-4-yosemite-fixes-and-many-improvements/

Hi Andrew,

Alfred's fear of graves is gone indeed, thanks!

 

You might want to fix the heading of this topic (2.2 -> 2.4).
