File navigation with left arrow key not working in empty folders

This behavior can be replicated with the following steps:

  1. Activate "Use <- and -> for folder navigation" option under Features -> File Search -> Navigation
  2. Browse in Alfred to any folder with no files or subfolders
  3. Press left arrow key to go back to parent folder
  4. The cursor will move 1 char left instead

I'm using the latest version of Alfred (2.8.3) on OSX 10.11.3.

Thanks for reporting this - I've been able to replicate this in the scenario where the left/right arrows are used for navigation. I'll add a note for Andrew to look into this for a future update.

[Mod: Merged from another thread, as it's a duplicate report]

 

I'm using Alfred v2.8.3 and OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.  

 

The problem I'm having, which I have been able to replicate, occurs when I'm navigating my file system within Alfred.  Specifically, when I navigate down into an empty folder (that is, a folder that contains no files or subfolders) I cannot navigate back out of it within Alfred.  

 

So, for instance, say I've navigated down into "parentfolder" within Alfred, and that "parentfolder" contains "emptysubfolfer".  If I navigate into "emptysubfolder" within Alfred, I can't navigate back up to "parentfolder".  This happens whenever I navigate into a folder that contains no files or subfolders.  

 

Thanks very much for your help.

Your bug report thread was merged with the existing thread, as we've already acknowledged the issue and have a ticket for this. :)

 

Cheers,

Thanks for acknowledging.  

 

I should note that I use cmd + up arrow and cmd + down arrow to navigate.  I get this problem using these hotkeys (as opposed to using just left arrow and right arrow).  

 

Thanks again,
