  1. Today
  2. Cool. I agree for now. Thanks for your input.
  3. It wouldn't work. There's no application that can (usefully) open every kind of file. So you're basically asking for a feature that is fundamentally broken in a very important way. Such features do not get added to Alfred.
  4. Go to Franz in Finder, right-click and choose "Get Info". Add "slack" to the "Comments" or tags. Then Alfred should also find Franz for the query "slack". You might have to reload Alfred's app list first (keyword "reload").
  5. It's not working in alfred4 because the directories in the "include.sh" doesn't exist anymore. _______________ Edit: I managed to make it work in Alfred 4. After installing the workflow, open it in finder to find where it was installed. Then edit the scripts to fix the old directories. Don't just copy and paste what posted here since the dir is dependent on your user account. include.sh: EGGPREFS="/Users/<your account>/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.B8A3F635-78EA-479E-8EE1-6AEE187E68FC" EGGWD="/Users/<your account>/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred/Workflow Data/user.workflow.B8A3F635-78EA-479E-8EE1-6AEE187E68FC" I'm not sure if naming it the same as the workflow is necessary. But I made the folder in the Cache then edited the include.sh file. That's probably an unnecessary step since the first_install.sh has mkdir "$EGGWD" line in it. first_run_check.sh "/Users/<your account>/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.B8A3F635-78EA-479E-8EE1-6AEE187E68FC/version" a file called version will be created by the first_install.sh login_check.workflow - This will open in automator "/Users/<your account>/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.B8A3F635-78EA-479E-8EE1-6AEE187E68FC/eggwd.txt" eggwd.txt is again a file that will be created by first_install.sh
  6. Cool. That's very nice! I now can use these steps: - search file - use up/down arrow to select file if file is not first search result - tab to open file action - choose file action I still wish I could simply do: - search file - cmd + number to select and open file in the editor I want It'd be nice if configurable.
  7. Title is confusing, what I want to do: If you type `slack` I want the first option that shows up to be `Franz`. Sounds backwards, but the reason being, I'm trying to use franz vs slack and I have muscle memory I can't shake. (I keep typing slack when I mean franz.) This might be a really out of the box solution and might not work, thought I'd give it a shot and ask anyway. Thanks!
  8. Try updating your npm. After brew update the above command worked for me. But I don't think it's compatible with Alfred 4 😞 (after "install" it is nowhere to be found in the list of Alfred's workflows) In the meantim I'm using OneHighlighter - https://apps.apple.com/us/app/onehighlighter/id1131580917
  9. @multicolor thanks for raising this interesting idea, if possible, could you please open an issue in Github project? https://github.com/xeric/alfred-outlook/issues I'll try my best to find if I have way to do this and keep tracking base on Github issue.
  10. Brief Instructions: 1. Import it. 2. Set snippet. 3. Use it with keyword to copy URI link to clipboard and paste where you want, or with snippet in your text editor.

  11. Looks like 2.12 is the latest: https://github.com/jaroslawhartman/TimeZones-Alfred/releases/tag/v2.12
  12. I don't get what you're trying to do or what the problem is. Are you trying to get it to highlight the right one ? My version ( 2.0 ) will only show the matching results. Maybe you could upgrade ?
  13. Hi! I love this workflow, thank you for making it. I'm having a problem with some cities. "tz los angeles 5am" works great, but when I use some other city names like turin, it does not work. I've attached screenshots.
  14. Yesterday
  15. I think I'm already doing that (screenshot below) — I still end up with 2 clipboard items added each time the workflow is called. I'm calling the hotkey from Contacts.app, but I've tested the behavior from other apps such as Sublime Text, Evernote etc and it's the same result. I'm linking a test workflow here so you can try it out and see what I mean. If you can get this to work I would love to know how! https://github.com/luckman212/alfredworkflows/blob/master/SpecialCopy.alfredworkflow.zip
  16. If you're using a Hotkey, you can tell Alfred to give you the current selection instead of simulating ⌘C.
  17. Ah ok. Yes I am familiar with the XY problem ( I don't think this is a case of it) What I am doing is triggering a "copy macOS selection" via Hotkey, then performing a trim operation on it, and copy the result back to the clipboard. I only need the final trimmed result, not the intermediate clip. So I would like to delete "{clipboard:1}" basically. Or, prevent it from ever reaching the history.
  18. Regardless of file type? In any case, you can do this by creating a custom File Action. See https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/file-action/ and https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/file-action/
  19. After finding a file using Alfred (typing space or single quote, and file name), is it possible to open the file with an editor I want? Currently, it seems to use different system default editors for different types of files, and sometimes even run the file in Shell. I'd like to set one Editor to open all files found through Aflred file search. Thanks
  20. Do what exactly? What is your workflow trying to achieve? What I mean is, this might be an XY problem. @FroZen_X's initial problem could likely have been solved by having Keyboard Maestro type the altered text instead of putting it back on the pasteboard, for example.
  21. Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for this.
  22. @Andrew I came searching for a solution to the same problem (clipboard manipulation within a workflow resulting in duplicate/unwanted items). Is there any safer way in 2019 or with Alfred4 to do this now? Thank you
  23. @vitor Wow thank you for this guidance! I understand about the danger of unescaped vars now. Your workflow works great. I will study it and try to educate myself. Thanks for the tip about the heredoc too. I actually knew about those but for some reason I forget to use them.
  24. Alfred's built in search works as designed (less noise), so the behaviour you are seeing is correct. You have control over file search behaviour if you use a file filter in a workflow. For example, to arbitrarily search keywords, you would use something similar to this: You can add in other fields if you want to search by e.g. display name also. Here is more info on using file filters: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/file-filter/ Cheers, Andrew
  25. This is usually down to Alfred's preferences not being available when Alfred starts. Have you set Alfred's preferences to be in a different location to standard, for example an external volume or a mapped drive? Cheers, Andrew
