Slight delay between Hotkey press and Action

4 posts in this topic

In Alfred 2, I have a lot of Hotkey > Launch Apps/Files workflows, where I use global hotkeys to open/switch-between applications.

 

I've noticed a slight delay (~200ms) between triggering a hotkey combination (⇧^C) and its corresponding Action (showing Chrome) taking place.

 

I still have Alfred 1.3.3 (267) installed, and when I use that instead (making sure to not run both versions side-by-side), the delay is not there. It's much snappier.

 

Alfred 2.0.1 (173)

OS X 10.8.3

 

Aside from that, love the new Alfred :)

When editing the hotkey in v2, right click on the hotkey field and set the trigger mode to fastest, it will then be instant.

 

The default mode in v2 makes sure that the mod keys are released before triggering, which makes the hotkey more predictable in certain circumstances.

Note: I've moved this to v2 Discussion so others can see it too :)

This option definitely should be more noticeable, default behaviour is very annoying when hotkeys are used for some interactive things like input language switch.
