    calendar help

    FWIW, Alfred's file search is not good for searching ICS files if you have many repeating events. The way it works just isn't a good fit for calendar data. It doesn't understand event dates, so it can't show dates in the results and it can't order the events in a way that makes sense for calendar data.

    calendar help

    @cayman Welcome to the forum I'd recommend using a workflow for this; If your calendar is anything like mine, it'd clutter results quite significantly if these were included in default results. Here's the calendar workflow I use, for which I've set the keyword "cal": https://www.dropbox.com/s/aa2y8morc97k5r3/Calendar search.alfredworkflow?dl=0 Cheers, Vero

    Unlike contacts, Alfred doesn't read your calendars database. If you want to view calendar events in Alfred, you need to point it to .ics files for those events (and add the corresponding file types to Alfred). If you use Calendar.app, it should export all its events as files under ~/Library/Calendars. So add that folder to your Search Scope and add the following filetypes under Advanced… com.apple.ical.ics.event com.apple.ical.ics

    File Search finding ~/Library files

    Hi @Andrew, i did add all the folders in my home folder, including finite ones (dot prefixed). I’ve dropped you an email as requested. Thanks Ben

    calendar help

    Hi I'm trying to work out to get Alfred to show calendar results in searches in the same way that Spotlight does. So for example if I key in Dentist it will show me my dentist appointments. I've have deselected calendar in the Don't Show section of File Search Preferences and have also given Alfred full disk access. I was also expecting to have to grant access to calendars for Alfred in the Privacy section of System Preferences but it does not appear there. Can anyone help me please? Thanks Cayman

    Syncing text expansion snippets over Dropbox

    @Spencer Transier Welcome to the forum If you're referring to the "non-synced" list, the "Snippet Auto-Expansion" listed there relates to whether text expansion is enabled; You can choose to use text expansion on one Mac but not the other. The snippets will be synced between your Macs, making them available to copy from the Snippets Viewer - or when text expansion is enabled on the second Mac. Hope that clarifies things! Have fun! Cheers, Vero

    Syncing text expansion snippets over Dropbox

    Never mind, the documentation must not be accurate anymore. My snippets just synced flawlessly between my two Macs. Fantastic app.
  9. Hey everyone! I just got the Powerpack earlier tonight and saw that I can sync some of the settings over Dropbox. Is there any way to get the text expansion snippets to sync over Dropbox as well? I know in the documentation it explicitly says that text snippets don't sync, but is there any way around that? Thanks!

    @Vero @Andrew what can you do regarding this issue? I have a very old bug report on this.

    File Search finding ~/Library files

    @bmazin If you drag a file into Alfred's default scope, it does add the containing folder - This is to just make adding folders to the scope easier. Obviously, once ~ is in Alfred's scope, it's going to search everything within ~. When manually adding all the folders, did you try adding in all the finite ones (dot prefixed)? Also, I see you have some Box sync items there, I'm wondering if these are having an affect. @bmazin - Could you pop an email to our info@ address, I'm going to give you a build which will log the actual folders Alfred is including in the scope when folders in home is selected on your Mac. This should let us know where the discrepancy is. Cheers, Andrew
  14. Oops--too much time in python--Thank you
  15. Replace the + with & AS is trying to add numbers ( hence the error message ) rather than concatenating strings.
  16. To make a long story short, I updated a workflow. It has a long action that is done by an Alfred Script object in AppleScript. In certain cases, I want to do some of the work via a python script rather than in AppleScript. To do this I added the following which checks a variable already set and if so tries to run a python script I put in the workflow folder. (The argument passed is encapsulated in quotes) --check if online and if so, use Python. if contents of online is "online" then --run script to put passage onto the clipboard do shell script "python ./get_verse.py \"" + passageRef + "\"" --paste the passage into the current app keystroke "v" using command down else The réponse I'm getting back in Alfred debugging is: [2019-01-16 15:18:30][ERROR: action.script] /Users/samuel/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Scripts/27C48708-2D1A-4008-BCBF-CCABCD6247DC:801:811: execution error: Can’t make "python ./get_verse.py \"" into type number. (-1700) This tells me it's not executing the python script. I'm sure there's something simple here I'm missing but cannot figure out what it is.
  17. I think the last time the problem wasn't with Swift, it was in AppleScript that actually switches the windows/tabs (that decision is to avoid adding one more app to the accessibility dialog). I hope I'm getting better at it, but I will appreciate any help!
  18. Thanks anyway, I might go deeper into Swift and try to do it myself.
  19. My entire team would love this for the same reasons as the OP :)

    File Search finding ~/Library files

    @Andrew, thanks. I just tried that and still nothing. In order to see my documents in ~/Library/Mobile Documents/ it looks like I have to tick the box to search for home and live with the inclusion of mail attachments. I'm tempted to do a fresh reinstall of Alfred to see if that will fix the problem.

    File Search finding ~/Library files

    Thanks @bmazin. Unfortunately, that did not work. I see that it is one of the default directories so I removed it and re-added it. Still nothing.
  22. Hey! Thanks for the feedback! I'm pretty sure it is not very trivial to do that taking into account internals of this workflow. It is a useful feature though, I might try to give it another shot.

  25. Apologies to everyone for going about this the wrong way. I’ll get back to this post sometime soon and try to address some of the issues that need addressing.
  26. Posting this to refocus the conversation. Step 1 is to contact Claudia directly. If she can’t do it, step 2 is to provide the requested information (the first one alone might fix everything).
  27. Sorry, vitor. I really didn’t mean to be a pest. I’ll go back through the old posts and see if I can clarify anything.

      No problem. No harm done. Let’s focus on having your issue fixed, but to do it the right way.
