How to configure Alfred’s Bear workflow to open notes in the main window

This applies to the Bear workflow written in Go whose default behaviour (in v1.1.6) is to open notes in a new window rather than the main Bear application window.

To adjust this, after installing and performing the dance of authorising all the workflow scripts, you need to manually edit the workflow property list file and replace new_window=yes with new_window=no.

FYI: the info.plist file can be found in:

~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/

or by right clicking on the workflow in Alfred’s preferences and selecting “Open in Finder”.
