Searching Notes with Alfred

Want a quick way to search Notes.app notes from Alfred? Create a Search Filter extension.

If you create a Search Filter extension that only shows results of the .notesexternalrecord file type, and then add kMDItemTextContent as an additional metadata field, you can easily search your Notes directly from Alfred. When you press Enter, the note will be opened in a stand alone window (see the screenshot above).

If you aren’t sure how to add the metadata field (it allows Alfred to search the file contents as well, not just the title), then don’t worry. Click here to download a pre-made filter. ‘Notes’ is the filter’s keyword. 

PS. Don’t forget the bacon.
