  1. Today
  2. OK, I'll give that a shot but this may be a bit beyond my ability. Regardless, thank you very much for your input.
  3. URL wildcards - open in specific browser

    That's not possible with Alfred's built-in actions. You need to write your own workflow that implements the "if URL matches *.sharepoint.com*, open in Chrome in my VM" logic. In Sierra and earlier, you can filter Safari's bookmarks with a File Action, but in High Sierra it has become significantly more complicated to read Safari's bookmarks in a workflow. Basically, you have to parse the property list they live in. Not quite. Ultimately, it needs a valid URL, but it supports the {query} and {var:XYZ} macros in the URL field. So you can set the URL to, say, https://{var:subdomain}.web.sharepoint.com/{var:path} and pass in path and subdomain variables to alter the actual URL that is opened.
  4. Hey there, Thanks in advance for any help. New Alfred user. I have added /Volumes to my search scope. I have a thunderbolt drive connected to my machine named Little Big. Searching for Big in Alfred does not return the obvious result that I want it to. Can anyone help me understand what it is doing? Also, doing a search for say desktop, it comes up with the screensaver settings first, then after about 2 beats it returns the ~/Desktop result. What is with the 2 beats? Why so slow? Thanks again
  5. Yesterday
  6. Forgive the ignorance, but... I'm having trouble figuring out how that works because the Open URL action requires a specific URL, correct? Maybe I worded my original question weirdly, so let me take another whack at explaining my intended use case: Open Alfred Search for a bookmark If the selected bookmark URL contains "%sharepoint.com%", then open in Chrome. Else, open in default browser. (% is a wildcard here) Note there are many different Sharepoint domains I use. For example, "https://workspace.web.sharepoint.com/abc" or "https://operations.web.sharepoint.com/xyz".
  7. Thanks Vero. Installing the application directly from Evernote fixed my problem.
  8. @Vero I'm having the same exact issue as @keenan411 Been using the workflow for the last couple years with no issues. The issue started when I upgraded to Mac OS High Sierra (10.13). I've confirmed I'm running the correct workflow and alfred versions per the first post in this thread.
  9. I just updated to the latest version of Alfred and now the dictionary link appears to be broken. Whether I use d (define) or s (spell) the word is never found. This includes words like "and", "there", etc. Is this function broken in v3.5.1?
  10. Creating .py file in workflow directory

    I find that confusing since I think of a workflow as an object/thing and think of preferences as being a setting.
  11. Creating .py file in workflow directory

    Wow, that's amazing, I never would have thought of that, thanks!
  12. With that in mind, just released a new version. Added the option to quicklook the URLs.
  13. The documentation search is a very handy functionality for workflow developers in general. I simplified the workflow to this single feature for my personal use.
  14. Update. Added option to search the full scope of online documentation. Also added a new snippet for recommending users search on Ask Different when the question isn’t Alfred-related. To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.
  15. Workflows Top 10, 20... 50!?!

    @mac98aop It's long been on our list to update the Workflows lists and share some of the best ones with users, but it's been tricky for Andrew and I to make the time to do this, given we've been working flat out on Alfred and on supporting users. Having said that, we've actually scheduled some time to focus on this soon. I'm using about 30 different workflows fairly regularly, but only about half of these are created by others; All others are made to meet my own daily needs, but aren't useful to anyone else as they're customised File Filters, To-Do List creators, Hotkey-based local actions, scripts to sync things to our own services, workflows to test Alfred features, etc. For @mac98aop, his best bet is to work out which tasks are repetitive, take up more time than they should or could be optimised and look for workflows for that specifically, or create his own. A top 10 for you or for me may be very different to what might be useful for someone else Cheers, Vero
  16. Workflows Top 10, 20... 50!?!

    No, it isn't. There is the occasional post about a workflow on the Alfred blog, but the actual Alfred team don't appear to be particularly heavy users of workflows. As there's no central source of Alfred workflows, there's no way to calculate a top 10 or the like. I have some stats from Packal that Shawn gave me, but they're very out of date. There are a few places, like the awesome Alfred workflow list, but I'd take that with a pinch of salt, as the main inclusion criterion appears to be submitting a pull request to add a workflow (i.e. actual awesomeness doesn't appear to be a requirement). You can also search GitHub for repos tagged with "alfred-workflow", but a lot of developers put all their workflows in a single repo, and so the utility of the search is somewhat limited by that.
  17. Workflows Top 10, 20... 50!?!

    Ok, so "whoops" turns out there's a useful guide on your website! Is it regularly updated? I'll start there though....
  18. If Alfred were paid in 'penny per use' he'd be rich. This App is simply wonderful and been part of my Mac for years now. I wonder how many Workflows I miss out on? I know we all have different needs, but is there a quick way of seeing New Workflows? (a monthly email, or should I check the forum?) Or indeed a Gallery of most downloaded Workflows? Be so great to quickly check back from time to time and see anything I need to add to my Alfred setup! Thanks again for a brilliant App. Adam
  19. Adobe CC 2018 apps were released yesterday. I have noticed that the problem still exists in InDesign 2018.
  20. Hi guys, I've recently downloaded Alfred and really like it. I'm trying to create a workflow now and have been struggling with how to go about it. I've tried to lay my problem out below 1) I receive an email from an address that I have saved in a Google sheet. 2) I open up the email and see that they have pasted a link/some text that I need in the email. 3) I want to use a trigger that copies the text I select and adds it to a specific row and column in my Google sheet. I'm using Zapier and feel comfortable with setting up Zaps with Alfred. However, my issue comes when matching the email I'm on with the correct row and column in the spreadsheet. In my spreadsheet, I have the recipients email address and even the message thread URL. So I could use these as a unique modifier quite easily. I'm just not sure how to set it up so that I have these bits of data to use in my zap. Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks everyone. - Mike
  21. When syncing your preferences, all settings which are sensible to be the same on both Macs (e.g. workflows, snippets, general hotkeys, etc) are synced between them. Certain preferences are not synced so that you can set them differently on each Mac (as you might not want to use the same theme or search scope on a home and work Mac that are configured differently). Workflows will automatically be saved to the Alfred.alfredpreferences package; As Deanishe suggests, you can either right-click a workflow name in the Workflows prefs sidebar, or when editing a workflow object, you can click the squares icon to open the folder in Finder. Cheers, Vero
  22. URL wildcards - open in specific browser

    It sounds like you should use a List Filter. Put the URLs, or just the differing parts, in there and connect it to one single Open URL action.
