Preferences > Custom Actions > Pattern

features for Type "Prefix" and "Regular Expressions" for the Applications, e.g. for xfce4-appfinder is used, could mention here. Or just publish such examples here :-). I have found:

Re: use "Custom Actions > Patterns" in xfce4-appfinder

Here is my catfish search custom action:
- Type = prefix
- Pattern = ~
- Command = catfish --path=$HOME --hidden --start %s

In the appfinder search window, I type:

~ SEARCHTERM

...and catfish opens up and displays the results.

Strange. Now I don't know how to get to the "Application Finder -> Custom Actions" window. Please help me find the way there!
In the Application Finder itself and in the "Main menu" editor I have not found the "Custom Actions".

Alt+F2 (or just run "xfce4-appfinder" from a terminal) > Preferences > Custom Actions.
