Hey Justin,


Thanks for the workflow, iv'e been missing it since the mailbox app came out :)


I cant get it to work properly though; it works perfectly fine when MB already is on my desk, it doesn't have to be active either. But when minimized i just get a "thump"-sound and nothing happens. I looked at the script (not knowing much about theese things) and it seems like the "tell application x to activate" might need to be preceeded by a "tell application x to maximize" or something first? If you got the time, i'd sure appreciate if you took a look at it.

Thanks for the note Rickard!


What version of MB are you on? I tried replicating the error but no luck yet…


Also, are you getting the thumping error when you simply open MB using Alfred? Or is it only occurring when you use the workflows (compose, search, later)?

Hey Justin, sorry I haven't got back to you, thought I'd get a notification from the forum of some sort if you'd replied. Guess it's in the settings. Anyways:


I took a closer look, and it turns out all of the scripts works fine if MB is either active or hidden. The problem occur if it's minimized,


I'm on a Macbook Pro mid 2014, specs below. Running  Mavericks 10.9.4 and latest build of MB. 


Hope you can figure it out, thanks a lot / Rickard

edit: opening/activating Mailbox in Alfred by just typing the app name works fine, even if minimized



Same thing for me (search not working when minimized). 


Workflow works great if the app is active though! :)

Actually, fixed it. 


add the line 


tell application "Mailbox (Beta)" to reopen


between the first and second lines of the applescript chunks. :)

It has been a while, and Mailbox is version 0.7.4 right now, but I believe the Workflow isn't working anymore. I'm a doing something wrong, or is an update required from the Workflow side?
