  1. Yesterday
  2. That's very useful to know. I wondered if there was a command-line flag for it, but I didn't realise that you can also pass them via open. Perhaps the API Alfred uses also supports them, then?
  3. Evernote search via Alfred , character corruption, I cant search with Japanese character . from Alfred 4 release. Search URL > evernote://search/{query} If search word is English word, normal result in everrnote. But ,if Japanese word is inputed , character corruption. What is wrong? Please teach me a beginner
  4. I am having the same issue as described above. I have even cleared the cache and rebuilt the search and ALL 1st-party apps are NOT showing up in the Alfred search but are showing up in Spotlight. All 3rd-party apps show up just fine. How do I fix this, it's very annoying.
  5. you probably have the notification style as Alert, in OS X notifications preferences for Spotify Mini Player app, see Link
  6. While understanding the need of not breaking things, can there be an opt-in option to have Alfred automatically download and update itself without user inputs? Thanks!
  7. I love Alfred so much and would also use its Music Mini Player – however what makes me sadly dismiss this feature is that searching for a song is not as flexible as in iTunes / the Apple Music app itself. Example: I'm searching for REO Speedwagon – Keep On Loving You In iTunes / Music any combination of fragments of the title and artist (also album) gives the result – I can type "REO Loving" for example. Or "Speedwagon You Keep". Whatever fragments with whichever sorting, they all will lead to the result which is very helpful especially if I don't have the full title / artist name correctly in my head. In Alfred Music Mini Player, I have to type "Keep On Loving" (or how much of the title I want) in the exact correct order. Otherwise no results. If I simply overview a setting or am doing this wrong, I would be glad if you could drop me a hint. Otherwise, I would be SO thankful if this is fixable. Thanks so much and keep up the great work – Alfred is a fantastic app, using it for years with Powerpack! Greetings from Germany!
  8. I have been using this command on mac: open -a "Google Chrome" --args --profile-directory="Profile 1" It works for me.
  9. 1, 2, 3, yes 4, Chrome. After enable, when I type "bm ", no such action.
  10. Has anyone else had song notifications that never disappear? they just stay forever
  11. This is weird. Normally, I use Alfred all the time, so when it gets in this weird state, I still reflexively toggle it, curse, then use Spotlight. Turns out that the toggle doesn't permanently break until the process is restarted. This time, I kept Alfred running in its weird state for a bit, in case there was more debugging info I could collect. I kept accidentally toggling it and cursing, but just now, after cursing, I realized that it has started responding to the toggle again. I seems that it might get in this weird state for a limited time, then something happens that causes it to recover. I don't think I did anything unusual to cause the recovery aside from waiting a while.
  12. Hello, I'm using Alfred 4.0.6 on macOS Catalina (10.15.1). Every few days, the toggle stops working. I can still bring up the Alfred menu item and open preference, but neither the toggle option on the menu item nor the toggle keystroke (ctrl-space for me) works. The only way to get it working again seems to be to quit Alfred, then restart it. I'm not sure what other useful information I can provide would be useful, but I'd be happy to provide what I can. I did check with a cow-orker who also uses Alfred. He's also on the current release, but is on 10.14 and he's not seeing this problem. Thank you.
  13. Sorry forgot say must have been a catalina issue. Was changing apps via Alfred. Reboot and it was fine.
  14. (Warning: threads like this tend to become a spam target over time. Not that I doubt our visitors from Delhi with 1 post each, but…) My question would be what the OP wanted to convert to MP3. What format is the source material in? That’s the only way to get a useful answer.
  15. I think I hate modern macOS. Yeah. You can't have such a core action being slow.
  16. Modern macOS restricts access to these kind of things without the necessary permissions, and as much as possible, Alfred is an "opt-in" when it comes to giving permissions... so I don't think I could make this work as standard default behaviour, which is imperative when it comes to such a fundamental action. To re-phrase, for such a core feature, I'd rather do a single simple API call to open an app, matching Spotlight's behaviour, rather than go through logic which could potentially hold Alfred up making Alfred "slow" for the every-day user.
  17. Simple, but I haven't seen it, so I'll share it. A custom search for Google Books: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&q={query} Better living through automation
  18. Could Alfred not check if the app has any windows open, and then activate or open accordingly? Or is that too slow? The same behaviour as messages is fairly common amongst document-based apps, like browsers and editors, I believe.
  19. Excel aside, I've had a bit of a play this morning of making Alfred "activate" an application if it's already running instead of asking macOS to open (reopen) it, which would essentially give Alfred the same behaviour of cmd+tab instead of Spotlight / Finder like reopening. This brings different and sometimes undesirable behaviour, for example, if you have Messages.app open but no windows open for the app and cmd+tab to it, you don't get the messages window. This compares unfavourably to the current behaviour where a new Messages window is opened. As a side note, Dock seems to have the ideal behaviour in this situation when looking at the Messages.app example, but I suspect it's using workspace APIs which aren't publicly accessible (e.g. direct access to the current windows for an app and shaping the behaviour accordingly). Alfred's default behaviour will remain as it is (i.e. matching Spotlight and Finder vs cmd+tab).
  20. @ssppjj Can you please clarify what you're seeing? This isn't enough information for us to be able to help you troubleshoot the issue. Which version of Alfred are you using? Which version of macOS are you using? Did you grant Alfred Full Disk Access in the General > Request Permissions? Which sources are you using, Safari and/or Chrome? The more information you provide, the easier we'll be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  21. @berksgr Could you provide more details on exactly which apps and what you're doing? I've just tested this between a few apps, and see identical behaviour, whether I'm changing app using Alfred, Spotlight or Alt + Tab. If you can provide a reproducible step-by-step of the behaviour you're seeing, and what you're expecting, I'll take a further look Cheers, Vero
  22. @ssppjj you can configure this in Alfred's Advanced preferences: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/advanced/ By default, ctrl+return will use the default fallback on the currently typed query, but you can change this to cmd+enter if you like. Cheers, Andrew
  23. By that you mean the window that has that specific file open in it, right? Yes, that's possible to do via Excel's AppleScript API. You can check if the application is running, and Excel's AppleScript API allows you to tell which documents are open in which windows. So you could probably create a workflow. First of all, you should report the bug to Microsoft, though.
  24. Hi, Thanks a lot for clarifying that. I understand the difference, and can definitely sympathise with not wanting to add app-specific workarounds for buggy apps. I'm wondering though, would it be possible to implement (in a workflow or in the Alfred main code) the functionality of focusing the app window if the app is running rather than opening the file? Perhaps there's already something like that, although I haven't found it.
  25. That's a no-go, then, unless the plugin keeps its data in the Zotero database, because that's what the workflow reads. Currently, all citations are formatted using CSL stylesheets, too. If you can use a "scannable cite" CSL style, that's what you should do.
