  1. This is a limit imposed by UNIX, not Alfred, but the error message shown is slightly confusing, and there should be a way to overcome this issue. Right now, selecting more than exactly 260527 characters on my system and using it in an Alfred workflow (with the Argument:'selection in OS X' setting) as "{query}" will throw an error. You can see your system's bash argument character limit with: getconf ARG_MAX Alfred should allow a way to pass the selection as stdin instead of a quoted and escaped string, otherwise there is no way around this hard limit, and Line-Counting workflows, etc. are useless for larger bodies of text. ^ Confusing error message when selecting too much text. ^ A workflow example that would trigger this. echo "{query}" > .wordcount echo "Characters: "$(wc -m < .wordcount)" Words: "$(wc -w < .wordcount)" Lines: "$(wc -l < .wordcount) rm .wordcount

    Pocket for Alfred

    Seems to be working fine here. Anything in particular you would like me to look/test for?

  3. I have an additional idea. How about providing another workflow which offers the last 10 notes/lines of the text file as feedback? Possibly copying the line to the clipboard on pressing enter.

  4. No, you did exactly what you should have done. Fortunately, I have discovered the root cause of the issue, and have pushed a fix to GitHub. Please download the new workflow and let me know if it works for you. Caleb

  5. I just downloaded the latest workflow from GitHub and tested it, but everything is working as it should. Note that if you hold down the control key when choosing a song from the list, it will search the song on Google. Perhaps the control key is somehow being held down when you choose a result. I'm running Yosemite myself and have no issues using my workflow. -Caleb
