Reveal in Forklift not working correctly


Recommended Posts

I changed the default file viewer to Forklift:


Added root key:

NSFileViewer : String : com.binarynights.ForkLift2
to ~/Library/Preferences/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2.plist
and it works when I try to reveal a directory, but for files (pdf, png etc.) instead of opening ForkLift at their location, they get executed (Preview or xee opens with a file).
How to correct that?
I'm on El Capitan
thank you

This may be Forklift issue, or even OSX...


I have also set Forklift as a default file manager globally:


defaults write -g NSFileViewer -string com.binarynights.ForkLift2


but when I try to reveal a downloaded zip from Safari downloads, Forklift opens but location doesn't change to it and the file is unzipped when I navigate there manually... Will write to Forklift developers for clarification...

Alfred doesn't have any control of the outcome of the NSFileViewer setting, so there isn't a huge amount I can do to affect this. One option is you could create a file filter workflow which then passes to a script action which specifically interacts with Forklift for opening this file instead of using the NSFileViewer setting.


I'm going to move to investigating, let me know if you find out any more details.
