  2. Hi! I'm searching a way to run a Python script using a Hotkey with Alfred. The script uses external modules so it isn't written with Py standard library. Would be cool having all working in background, no terminal windows opening..... Is it possible?? Thanks
  3. Today
  4. Okay, that do trick. (Office (US) reference) I should have tried that before, but I didn't think of it, to be honest. What I did: Closed Alfred Preferences > Activity Monitor > closed all running instances of anything called Alfred (there was nothing) > Accessibility > Privacy > removed Alfred using the βˆ’ symbol (instead of unchecking the box) > re-added Alfred > checked and unchecked the box successfully > started Alfred > tested; still not working! > restarted computer > tested; working! I'm not sure whether all those steps are necessary, but in case anyone else has the same problem, this may help. Edit: Boy is it difficult to work without Alfred. Slowed me down so much.
  5. Nice!!! It works perfectly! Thank you for sharing!
  6. Hi @Jason30, This workflow (keyword: devon) should do what you want, but it still goes through DEVONthink and, because of that, it is slow. If you describe your use case in more detail, there might be a better solution. Also, please note that you can also enter the UUID only (e.g. 4D3C5C22-DF6C-4264-A279-A0B7386A2822 in your example). hope this helps!
  7. Can you explain in more detail what happens when you press enter on a search result in Alfred? Do you receive any errors? Does it open a web browser (or notion app if you have that configured) with the result?
  8. A friend wrote a script for me (with the default software to open PDFs),my problem is that I don’t know how to tell Alfred what it should process. He said that I need to find a way to deliver Alfred my input. -- Open record with default app set theReferenceURL to "x-devonthink-item://4D3C5C22-DF6C-4264-A279-A0B7386A2822" -- replace this with e.g. Alfred's input tell application id "DNtp" try set theRecord to (get record with uuid theReferenceURL) if theRecord = missing value then error "No record" set thePath to path of theRecord if thePath = "" or (POSIX file thePath as string) ends with ":" then error "No file" tell application "Finder" open file (POSIX file thePath as alias) end tell on error error_message number error_number if the error_number is not -128 then display alert "DEVONthink" message error_message as warning return end try end tell
  9. @vero I deleted all the Snippet Collections and then re-added them. Now everything works fine. I'm not using any syncing services as of yet. Thank you.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Searching completed tasks should be ok. I'll have a look and add into a future release.
  11. @T'hain Welcome to the forum This is possible with the Powerpack, so if you could please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile, I'll be happy to help you create a workflow to do this. Cheers, Vero
  12. I use Safari as my main browser, but I use Firefox for a specific work related web app, which doesn't behave properly in Safari. Is it possible for me to send the majority of my web searches to Safari, and a few to Firefox, in a per 'web search'-specific way? This way I would be able to do all searches related to that specific web app in Firefox, but keep all my main stuff in Safari.
  13. Not that URL, no. You can clearly see it's a Devon Think-specific URL. If you want to open the item in PDF Expert, you will presumably need the path to the corresponding PDF file, not just the Devon Think item ID.
  14. @Sucesso This is very strange, we've never seen this! Could you please try selecting Alfred in the Accessibility permissions and pressing the minus symbol to remove Alfred from the list altogether? Are you able to do so? This is undoubtedly down to an issue in macOS rather than in Alfred, but I'll be very interested to hear the outcome. Cheers, Vero
  15. @James Senecal This looks like a permissions issue on your Mac, causing Alfred to be unable to write to disk to save the option you're checking. If you're not syncing, you can repair permissions by following the instructions here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/preferences/ If you're syncing, please let me know what service you're using as this may play a part in the issue you're experiencing. Cheers, Vero
  16. Can any friend implement it with workflow? Can you share? Thank you very much!❀️
  17. As shown in the figure, after entering the link in Alfred, is there a way to open it directly with PDF expert? Instead of opening in Devonthink and then choose to open in PDF Expert. Thank you very much for your answer πŸ™
  18. Yesterday
  19. This is one of my most frequently used workflows, thanks a lot for creating and supporting it, it's been very stable over several years. The thing I miss the most is a possibility to search within completed tasks, any chance to add such a feature?
  20. Snippets stopped auto-expanding yesterday. (I also noticed that Clipboard History stopped working.) I restarted my computer, and then went through the troubleshooting steps. I am stuck at the part where I remove and re-add Alfred. I have quit Alfred (checked Activity Monitor to make sure no instances of Alfred are running as well). When I uncheck the Alfred 4 box, nothing happens. (Quick video to show: https://share.getcloudapp.com/lluNkqjk ) I've tried a couple of workarounds to remove it using a command (tccutil reset CATEGORY com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred; not sure whether that's the correct bundle ID, though), but couldn't. I received this error message: Failed to reset CATEGORY approval status for com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred Thoughts on what to try next? Uninstall and reinstall?
  21. Those aren't hotkeys, that's part of macOS's text input system. You can't bind key combinations like that in text input fields because it breaks text entry.
  22. This shell command opens a new Firefox window: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin --browser
  23. User can copy content when select item and press ⌘ C, I want to post a notification. how? Any trigger to achieve it.
  24. Yeah I did read through that, but even if the scriptability of firefox is fairly limited, I feel like the task I mentioned should still be doable. I have gotten variations of it to work (open new window if firefox is already active, etc.). I appreciate the response
  25. Would be nice if we could scroll search/snippet results with some keyboard shortcuts. I'm sure many Alfred users are also somewhat familiar with the `j` and `k` keys for scrolling, be it in terminal, or text editors, and would find this useful. At the moment: `alt+j`, does this: βˆ† `alt+k`, does this: ˚ ...not very useful, and these keys could instead be used for enhancing productivity.
  26. @Vero In Snippets, I cannot enable any existing Snippets that exist and I cannot add any new Snippets for auto expansion. For example, I have the Currency Symbols pack loaded with only GBP, EUR, and USD enabled. I tried to enable Indian Rupee but it will not save. Here is a quick video https://imgur.com/LS44LW9
  27. @James Senecal Could you give more details? What do you mean when you say your snippets are locked? Do you sync your preferences? If so, what sync service are you using? If you can please provide more information, we'll be able to help you further Cheers, Vero
