What’s New

Version 4.0.4:

  • File Search
    • Force default sort order to file metadata query to ensure most relevant results before Alfred has accumulated internal knowledge
      • You should see a significant improvement to Alfred's default ranking of results, and more relevant file search results presented
      • This resolution has been needed in the past due to changes in the underlying macOS metadata, and has now been added permanently
    • Tweak to File Filter to allow * as the Metadata field. Allows for wide arbitrary matching of multiple metadata fields if used with Words and Split options selected
    • Fix regression where application alt names words were not being matched, important for non-english app searching in english from mid string e.g. "monitor" to match "Activity Monitor"
    • Split /Applications (and /System/Applications) from Default Results search scope into separate checkbox to prevent accidental, confusing removal, and to future-proof for Catalina
    • Add Catalina iCloud Drive location to default search scope (select 'reset' to get default scope paths if they have been customised)
      • Note: This location seems to be changing throughout the Catalina Beta, so further changes may be needed
    • Correctly abbreviate files in home folder and iCloud in Catalina instead of showing full System Volume path
    • Only show iCloud Drive once in file search result subtext for files in the top level iCloud Drive folder
  • Add warning at startup when a sync folder is set but the preferences are missing from that folder (e.g. a Volume not currently mounted)
  • Fix Snippet 'snip' keyword to correctly use rich text snippets
  • Fix "Email To..." file action in macOS Catalina (Thanks to Alfred user Vitor from our Forum)
  • Switch default ordering of the clipboard history 'clear' keyword results to be chronological
  • Tweak some workflow debug messaging
  • Increase arbitrary URL recognition limit from 500 to 4096 characters
  • Fix text in welcome message from "to to" to "to do"
  • Recognise .alfred4workflow file type for importing workflows
  • Calculator
    • Recognise x as multiplication
    • Update calculator to ignore basic calculations if prefixed with a permissible character but an unrecognised character sequence
  • File Actions
    • Ensure that scope folders (e.g. Desktop) are correctly found when searching for a folder in Actions such as "copy to" and "move to"
    • Prevent hang when prefixing a search term with ~ in the "copy to" and "move to" actions
  • iTunes Mini Player
    • Close Mini Player database before moving newly indexed database into position
    • Ensure that top level results divider line is only drawn in the Mini Player when needed
    • Improve artist / album counting during indexing
    • Catalina improvements
      • Fix Alfred Mini Player to work with macOS Catalina
      • Update music data importing to use macOS API (in place of XML)
      • Show "Music" in place of "iTunes" for Alfred feature preferences and default results
