Alfred Does Not Find Dymo Label Application

Recommended Posts

I use the DYMO label printing application "DYMO Label.app" (https://dymo.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/101/~/dymo-drivers-and-downloads#lw_mac) to print labels.  I can't get Alfred to find the application, regardless of search term I use.  Spotlight finds the application without any problem.  It's located in the standard /Applications folder, and all of the other Applications in the folder are found.

 

I'm running OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 and Alfred 2.5.1.

It's possible that the DYMO Label application doesn't have the necessary metadata to be found by Alfred. Could you please install this little metadata tool and drag in the DYMO app? Paste the results here so that we can take a look :)

Well, now I feel sheepish.  The answer is right there at the top of the results.  The "alfred:ignore" comment wasn't showing up in the "Get Info" display for the application, but by adding then removing another comment I was able to remove it.  Everything is working perfectly now, thank you!  Sorry for the hassle.
