DT search from Alfred is slow

Using Alfred 4 (latest version) with the DEVONthink plugin from GitHub - dvcrn/alfred-devonthink: Alfred workflow for interacting with DEVONthink

Using the “dnt” shortcut to search against my DT files. Occasionally results come back quickly, but in most cases it takes several seconds to execute a search, or never returns at all (or I haven’t waiting long enough).

Otherwise both DT & Alfred are working perfectly fine. DT is also the latest version. Surely Something Is Wrong Somewhere, but I don’t know where to start looking.

Suggestions welcome…

Welcome @jwmay

That is a third-party Alfred plugin. You’d need to contact the author of it to see if he’s aware or even still developing it actively.

The performance depends a lot on the number of items/words in your opened databases and the search query. In addition, the script could be slightly optimized as it searches one database after another and merges the results instead of searching in all databases at once.
