Hi all --
I use Alfred on an iMac that has a Parallels VM installed.  I have a bunch of hotkeys that should never, ever run when I'm using an app in Parallels.
 
As far as I can tell, my only option is to take all of my apps in /<home>/Applications (Parallels) -- all 134 of them -- and drag them into the "Related Apps" dialog for each and every one of those hotkeys.
 
Then, if I ever install a new application in my Parallels VM, I need to drag *that* to the "Related Apps" dialog for each of those hotkeys, too.
 
Is there an easier way to do this?
 
Specifically:
1. Is there any way to tell a hotkey "don't activate for any app in this subdirectory?"
2. Failing that, is there any way to tell Alfred about a group of applications, and then set individual hotkeys not to activate if any app in that group is active?
 
Frankly, I'd even settle for "make it so *no hotkeys at all* activate for any app in the Parallels VM" if that would make things simpler.
 
   ~ thanks! ~
