Fallback options appear almost immediately after workflow keywords

Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing very odd behavior. If I attempt to select a workflow using a keyword, I get the default search instead, even though the workflow keyword shows up in the Alfred menu and I select it. For example, I use the ens keyword to access the installed "Evernote" workflow. When I select "Search..." from the Alfred Dropdown (see image 1), I very briefly see "Searching..." appear, but then it appears to time out almost instantaneously and then I see the fallback search options (see image 2).


Similarly, if I type a workflow keyword, Alfred very briefly shows the keyword result, but then immediately switches to the fallback search options. I am unable to use the workflow keyword, and whatever i type in {query} is simply fed into the fallback query.


Is there some kind of super-short timeout being applied here? Is there a way to adjust this?

Have started to debug this. I see the following error in the Alfred workflow debugger:


[2016-11-11 16:47:14][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] Code 1: 0:90: execution error: mkdir: /Users/jbeldock/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2/Workflow Data: No such file or directory (1)

Problem was the script being hard-coded to


~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2/Workflow Data

A simple symlink solved the problem:

ln -s com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/ com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2
