  1. Past hour
  2. @andersennl Alfred keeps live references open to files in his preferences, so expects them to both be always available, and fast. As such, it's not ideal to set the sync location to a remote volume, as if this drive were to not be available on startup, or disappear during Alfred's operation, then you could expect some issues in Alfred. One option could be to setup rsync between Alfred's preferences and your Synology NAS. This way, Alfred's preferences would be local, but you could rsync a copy out to the Synology every time a preference changes. Cheers, Andrew
  3. Today
  4. @Azmi Are you syncing your preferences, and if so, what service are you using? Also, do you use Time Machine? If so, you should be able to locate the Alfred.alfredpreferences there and revert to it Cheers, Vero
  5. @soloman817 Please get in touch on our info@ email address for any license-related questions. I won't be able to answer these via private message on the forum. Cheers, Vero
  6. Hello. I restarted my computer, when I got back on I lost all my Web Search settings. Odd thing is that theme and snippets are still there. I have a zipped backup of Alfred 4, when I unzip and start this, I'm still not seeing my old Web Searches. Is it possible to recover this? I lost all my important links and searched for my job. Thanks in advance.
  7. It sounds like the metadata indexer is running a bit slow on your machine. Presumably, it's not showing up in the File Filter immediately because you're filtering by filetype, but the the file's type isn't available until it's indexed.
  8. hi, vitor, thanks for your warm welcome. wiuld that possible to shut down my laptop in like 10min or 30min with Alfred? thanks,
  9. @soloman817 That should be possible, yes, by contacting @Vero via private message or using the email address at the bottom of the contact page.
  10. Hello! After several years, I still have this problem. I've run `mdls` to inspect one file that does not appear in a File Filter, and another that does. The file type I'm filtering for, in the File Filter, is `dyn.ah62d4rv4ge80g55eqy01s55wrr31a2pdqy` (which corresponds to the file extension of `.code-workspace` for VS Code workspace files). The `mdls` output for a file that appears in the results is: kMDItemContentCreationDate = 2018-03-26 01:00:14 +0000 kMDItemContentCreationDate_Ranking = 2018-03-26 00:00:00 +0000 kMDItemContentModificationDate = 2019-11-11 20:35:24 +0000 kMDItemContentType = "dyn.ah62d4rv4ge80g55eqy01s55wrr31a2pdqy" kMDItemContentTypeTree = ( "dyn.ah62d4rv4ge80g55eqy01s55wrr31a2pdqy", "public.data", "public.item" ) kMDItemDateAdded = 2018-03-26 01:00:14 +0000 kMDItemDateAdded_Ranking = 2018-03-26 00:00:00 +0000 kMDItemDisplayName = "Project.code-workspace" kMDItemFSContentChangeDate = 2019-11-11 20:35:24 +0000 kMDItemFSCreationDate = 2018-03-26 01:00:14 +0000 kMDItemFSCreatorCode = "" kMDItemFSFinderFlags = 0 kMDItemFSHasCustomIcon = (null) kMDItemFSInvisible = 0 kMDItemFSIsExtensionHidden = 0 kMDItemFSIsStationery = (null) kMDItemFSLabel = 0 kMDItemFSName = "Project.code-workspace" kMDItemFSNodeCount = (null) kMDItemFSOwnerGroupID = 20 kMDItemFSOwnerUserID = 501 kMDItemFSSize = 377 kMDItemFSTypeCode = "" kMDItemInterestingDate_Ranking = 2020-02-15 00:00:00 +0000 kMDItemKind = "Visual Studio Code - Insiders document" kMDItemLastUsedDate = 2020-02-15 18:27:26 +0000 kMDItemLastUsedDate_Ranking = 2020-02-15 00:00:00 +0000 kMDItemLogicalSize = 377 kMDItemPhysicalSize = 4096 kMDItemUseCount = 598 kMDItemUsedDates = ( "2020-02-15 05:00:00 +0000" ) And the output for one that doesn't appear in the results is: kMDItemFSContentChangeDate = (null) kMDItemFSCreationDate = (null) kMDItemFSCreatorCode = "" kMDItemFSFinderFlags = (null) kMDItemFSHasCustomIcon = (null) kMDItemFSInvisible = 0 kMDItemFSIsExtensionHidden = (null) kMDItemFSIsStationery = (null) kMDItemFSLabel = (null) kMDItemFSName = (null) kMDItemFSNodeCount = (null) kMDItemFSOwnerGroupID = (null) kMDItemFSOwnerUserID = (null) kMDItemFSSize = (null) kMDItemFSTypeCode = "" Clearly something is wrong here! But is there anything that I, or Alfred, can do about this? The latter file appears file in a normal file search, in both Spotlight and Alfred. But it doesn't appear in the File Filter, since I'm filtering for a something type of file, and apparently, even though this file has the correct file extension (.code-workspace), it doesn't have the correct metadata. The weird thing is, after 10 minutes, the metadata gets populated for the file. But of course, I'd like to be able to create a file, and access it in Alfred, immediately.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Thanks. A further question: I think I am using single user license, so if I install it on my two Macs, then after some months or years, I trash one of my old Mac and buy a new one, can I revoke that license and use it on my new Mac?
  13. I have been using this workflow a lot, it's been solid and reliable for a long time, thanks! Since I have added relatively many templates now I sometimes forget which template is for what purpose, and it is not always self-evident from the name of the main folder. I wonder, would it be easy to add a feature letting the user add an optional description of each template (it may e.g. be shown in the result subtext when showing the template list)? That would make the workflow even more useful I think.
  14. It’s Quick Look. You can preview any file that Quick Look supports.
  15. Have installed Python 3. The WF is working fine now. Thank you!
  16. Does Alfred not offer previewing other file types like text files?
  17. I believe Xcode is a very heavy file? ALmost 8gb is this correct? ALso will version 1.4.3 of the workflow work on Catalina?
  18. You can use release 1.4.3 of the workflow or install the xcode command line tools using the command xcode-select --install
  19. Thanks for this workflow. I have looked at `settings.json` but I do not understand what to change in order to get a file to open in BBEdit. Can you please explain? Thanks. Jeremy
  20. No, i don't have Python 3 installed. Can you recommend any good knowledge base articles to get me on my way?
  21. If you're following this thread, and haven't yet seen my reply in the following thread with a build to try.
  22. @gaurav_mac_user is python3 installed on your computer?
  23. Hi, the support documents advise to rather use Dropbox than Apple' iCloud Drive to sync Alfred's settings, as iCloud Drive has problems detecting changes inside packages, which I can confirm. I'm wondering though if anyone has experience using the Synology NAS' Drive Station to sync such a file and if it works reliable. Thanks
  24. Here is a screenshot of the debugger window.
  25. @hazephase try tapping space on the file to quick look that file. Alternatively, if all of the files are in the same folder, you could use Alfred's file navigation mode, e.g. paste ~/Downloads/ into Alfred.
  26. @gaurav_mac_user I am on Catalina latest and Alfred 4 and WF works. What is Workflow debug window telling you when executing the WF (open WF in Alfred, click the bug in top right corner and execute the workflow)
