  1. @Chris Messina this is indeed a UI issue, however minor, as the underlying feature works as expected (all URLs are routed via macOS). Alfred should really dynamically be showing the correct default handler if possible. Taking suggestions from this thread (thanks for the relevant input), I've updated Alfred to show "Open With" instead of "Browser", and the default handler will automatically update as you type, for example: This should be in the 4.3.2 pre-release in the next few days. Cheers, Andrew

  3. I guess they were referrring to So storing both the encrypted data and the en-/decryption key in the same unprotected storage ("plainly on disk") is indeed a horrible idea. Storing it in a place that is potentially vulnerable to direct access via malicious websites in case the browser itself is attackable via a browser vulnerability is another issue. The latter is the reason why it is generally not the best idea to use a browser's own password management feature.

  4. Doesn't matter, I'm afraid. People will still add too many workflows and they will still add slow workflows, and then they'll write Vero an email asking why it doesn't work. I'm sorry, there isn't really a balance to be struck. For a feature to be considered, the risk of misuse or misbehaviour must be basically zero. The Alfred team just doesn't have the capacity to be fielding an extra bunch of support requests, and you can't make trade-offs when you've nothing to trade with.

  5. I use Brave rather than Safari or Chrome, but the "Web Bookmarks" feature doesn't find my Brave Bookmarks. Configuration: macOS Sierra 10.12.6 Brave Version 0.59.35 Chromium: 72.0.3626.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) Web Bookmarks Feature is Configured as follows: Sources: "Google Chrome Bookmarks" Show Bookmarks "via keyword" = "bm" Open Bookmarks "in macOS default browser" If I add a bookmark to brave and search for it using "bm" it is not found. If I add the same bookmark to Chrome, it works fine.

  6. Hi, @faltoo, welcome to the forum. That's exactly why it's at the top. If you enter "pu" and select your "Show pull requests" action a few times, you'll retrain Alfred to put that first. You can tell Alfred to ignore AirPort Utility completely by adding the comment alfred:ignore to it (do a Get Info on the app in Finder). You can also reset Alfred’s “knowledge” in Alfred Preferences > Advanced > Clear Knowledge, but you’ll likely also lose a lot of training you’d rather keep. More generally, it's not a good idea to blindly action things in Al

  8. Yes! This is exactly what I was suggesting — it's both more accurate and doesn't obtrusively get in the way of the default/majority case: Thanks for hearing me out and considering this discussion and moving quickly on an implemented solution, @Andrew! And thank you @Mr Pennyworth for summarizing the different perspectives and moving the core conversation forward which, in my view, resulted in a better Alfred for everyone. 😅

  9. @peegeebee If by workflow, you're referring to the default web search for Google Translate, the URL structure was changed by Google a couple of days ago. If you update to the Alfred 4.3.2 pre-release (by going to the Update tab, choosing "pre-releases" from the dropdown menu at the bottom and updating), you'll see that this URL has already been updated to reflect Google's change Cheers, Vero

  10. I love this discussion minus the part where @Chris Messina felt unwelcome. From my limited interactions with @deanishe and @vitor I feel damn confident that no one on this thread means to attack / argue in bad faith with anyone. MacOS settings: I don't agree with the thesis that Apple's "Default Web Browser" setting is misleading or incomplete. "Web" implies http(s), no? I don't see any ambiguity there. Apple is saying "choose an app to open http(s) urls". It is just that for all other URL schemes, Apple hasn't provided a UI. But whatever UI is present, it is precise, and comp

  11. I’d say the issue might be the amount of back and forth. There are three Alfred veterans trying to help on this thread (and in your others, there were multiple as well). In general, one of us is enough and the others move on to help someone else or only make a small comment for completeness. But since you continue to argue back (not a criticism), the others will try to further clarify the points already made and fill any gaps, which makes it so you have more people to respond to (while we still only have one each—you). Yes, but to be honest the example answer you gave is

  12. It hasn't changed. In fact, I'm pretty sure that Finder decides whether the file is moved or copied, not Alfred. In any case, Finder's/Alfred's default behaviour is to move the file if the destination is on the same partition, but to copy across partitions.

    Percent Change

    Hi All, I'm new here, and I've just created my first workflow: Percent Change. For some reason, I can never do this in my head, and I'm tiring of looking up the formula. This workflow lets you calculate the percent of change between two values, using the % symbol: % <value1> <value2> So, something like % 3 6 would give you a result of 100. The result is displayed in Large text and copied to the clipboard. You can find it, here: http://www.packal.org/workflow/percent-change I'd love any feedback.

  14. @drwatson Here are a few scenarios where clipboard may merge when it shouldn't: Another clipboard modifying app running concurrently Using an app that has its own clipboard feature (e.g. iTerm) Using a keyboard modifier app that may be triggering keys in the background Non-Apple third-party keyboard (I recall a Logitech keyboard that was triggering extra keys) Take a look at whether it's happening only in one app, or in any app (TextEdit is the ideal testing app as it's such a simple native one) Cheers, Vero

Find and watch movies or shows instantly My workflow makes it really easy to quickly search for a movie or tv show, find the different services streaming the content, and go right to the content.

  16. List the contents of a directory and act on them. Call the workflow with rdn to sort from the most recently modified, rdo for the reverse; rda to sort from the most recently added, rdz for the reverse. To act on the selections, use the standard Alfred shortcuts. You can activate file actions, dive into directories, preview files, add them to the file buffer — whatever you want to do that is supported by Alfred. ⌥↵ opens the selection in Finder, while ⇧↵ clears the cache for rda and rdz. By default the Workflow looks in ~/Downloads. Change the value in th

  21. Thanks for the feedback, I sometimes add options into workflows first to see how well they are received, and how well they work. I already have a note to bring this same option from the Browse in Alfred to the default navigation options, but at this point, it will likely remain a simple checkbox to keep this complexity of understanding this feature low.

  23. This is a workflow for searching and adding bookmarks to Raindrop.io. To search your Raindrop.io bookmarks, open Alfred, type r, space, and then your search query, and the results will show directly in Alfred so that you can select one and press enter to open it in your browser. Raindrop.io collections and tags will also show in the search results together with bookmarks, and you can select them to browse or search their content. Before you have started to type a search query, you also have the option to browse your collections instead of starting with

  24. @Avatar Provided the Mega Supporter license is used on Macs that are for your use, and not shared workstations, our licensing system gives a little more flexibility. If you hit an activation limit and are unable to activate any more, contact us and we'll be happy to help you Fundamentally, with both license types, the key point is that the license is for one individual, not for sharing.

  32. Thank you. There’s a typo. You made it “Aout Mac”. Seems like it will only do so for the startup disk, though. Not if one disables the percentage or hides battery information. Plus, it doesn’t show information such as charging state (which may be “on Hold” when Optimised Battery Charging is on). But I don’t want to bother you further, I’ll look into those. Thank you again.

  38. @Kalaschnik Given Alfred's primarily intended to be used from the keyboard, a hover-over would require moving from the keyboard, grabbing the mouse and hovering over the particular results. Perhaps in your case, as you're not using the text auto-expansion feature, something like a List Filter workflow instead of snippets might be better suited. You can then have a title and subtext, and then have that paste text. Here's how List Filters work: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/list-filter/ Then connect a Copy to Clipboard utility to paste y

  39. This is what I mean: There is no limitation. craftdocs:// would have Just Worked if you'd left it set to "Default Browser". You considered the UI, formed an incorrect mental model about the way it works, and then came to post a feature request for the way it already works. That's not unusual, but it is the first time it's happened for this feature. People have been putting non-HTTP URIs in that box for a decade without apparent confusion, which suggests to me that—even if it is technically incorrect—the dialog fits most people's mental model of "opening URLs o

  40. On behalf of the thousands of UI designers upon whom the world depends, I take umbrage with characterizing UI design as the least of the world's software design problems. But I will otherwise ignore it because it is irrelevant to my original point, which was about the "truth" in the interface, which you seem willing to accept as a "lie" for "practical" reasons, which is your wont to do. I prefer to stay stuck in my theoretical bubble if it allows me to pursue increasing honest or accuracy with the users of software that I design or contribute to.

  41. Seems to me that what you’re pointing out is that Apple’s UI isn’t accurate. That “Default web browser” is the same thing. Alfred can follow macOS’ example or deviate from it. Considering this is the first time I recall this being an issue on these forums, it seems that not deviating has worked out fine, and changing that to another option not used anywhere else is opening the door to confusion. You should consider mentioning it to Apple via Feedback Assistant. If they change it, I’d see a bigger argument for Alfred to follow. But I don’t think they will, an

    firefox bookmark search

    Firefox is about 2x as popular as Safari though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers#W3Counter_(May_2007_to_September_2018). It seems to me that usage is no longer a valid reason. And that "<5%" of Firefox users still paid the same price for their copy of Alfred as everyone else. Perhaps you should offer a discount for Firefox users seeing as they're forced to go without such useful functionality.

    Stock Charts

    I would love to see support for stock charts, similar to what Apple is doing with Spotlight search in El Capitan. I'd like to be able to type in a symbol (e.g. AAPL) and it would display a live stock chart, ideally customizable in terms of range (1 day, 1 month, 6 month, etc.) and when selected, would take me to Google Finance. I have a lot of additional ideas for this, but this would be a basic start to something great! Thanks for the consideration!
