    Hi! I often try to display a piece of text from the Clipboard Viewer in Large Type, using its assigned hotkey (Cmd+L). It seems so natural to me, but it doesn't work. Instead, one have to copy and paste again the desired element in Alfred main window to display it in Large Type. I think it would be a nice little addition Thanks for considering!

    Run browser bookmarklets from Alfred, without needing to having them installed in the browser itself. Note that you may need to Allow JavaScript from Apple Events in your Browser. 1 For the first step, get this template workflow itself. Though this is not strictly necessary (you can build it yourself) it serves as a starting point with most of the work already done. Proceed to open the workflow in Alfred. Next, get a browser bookmarklet to convert by copying its link address. 2 Run :cleanbookmarkletcode to clean the code in your clipboard. It performs substitutions necessary to avoid problems when pasting the code in the next step. 3 Open the Arg and Vars node and paste the code. Extra If you’re not new to Alfred, you likely won’t need these steps as you’ll know what to do. 4 The template includes both a Keyword and a Hotkey nodes to run the code. You can delete either one by clicking on it and pressing ⌫. 5 If you choose to use the workflow via Keyword, do not forget to set it up. 6 Lastly, edit the workflow’s details and its icon. For completeness it’s pre-filled with my details. Feel free to edit them. Download | Source

    Type Clipboard Workflow for Alfred App Simple workflow to write the clipboard content in those situations where ⌘ → V doesn't work, typically in non Cocoa application dialogs. It has happened to me in older Flash versions, Intellij IDEA and a few others. You have to go and paste with right clicking the mouse or pad... Atrocious!! Setup After installing the workflow you have to setup the default keyboard shortcut, since Alfred does not auto-import keyboard shortcuts on workflows. I use ⇧⌃⌥⌘ → V, since I don't use it that often. Alternatively, you can trigger the typing with the typeclipboard keyword. Usage Just trigger the shortcut or keyword to type the clipboard content. There's a character cap of 500 characters, to avoid accidents, since the typing takes time depending on the length of the text. If you hit the cap, you'll hear a classic error sound. Installation Download the alfred-type-clipboard.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2. Source Code Clone or Fork the Workflow: https://github.com/ramiroaraujo/alfred-type-clipboard-workflow Changelog 2014-02-04 - Released

    Well, as soon as I posted it occured to me to try standard URL Encoding (%7B and %7D). I feel pretty sheepish now. I'll leave this in case it helps someone else.
