I used to be able to see everything I ever copied to my clipboard for the day (or maybe the last 100 or so items) in the alfred app. Now in V2 it only shows stuff that was copied to clipboard via Alfred, not stuff that I selected and hit Command + C. Bug? Yes/No? Thoughts?

You should definitely be able to see everything that was copied (text).

Weird. 

 

Double checked my settings. I never realized but this:

Needed to be checked otherwise none of my copied text would show up. I had no idea I checked that last time, though it's been such a long time since I set this up :-)

I'm not getting any history for my clipboard either. I did have this option checked. I unchecked and rechecked it and I'm still getting no history when I hit my shortcut. The window displays, just no copied text, only the All Snippets bit.

 

Update: After unchecking and rechecking, I had to shut down and restart Alfred. My history then showed up - even the stuff I'd copied before restarting Alfred.

Are you syncing Alfred settings and if so, where?

I have tried to check and uncheck the option, restart Alfred, restart my mac but clipboard doesn't show up. Any advice?

Could you try deleting ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb and see if that helps? May need to restart Alfred afterward but I don't think you do.

Great! Glad you got it working. There may have been something in the database that got corrupted. Removing the database allowed Alfred to recreate it and start fresh. Thanks for reporting back
