    @akido Type "reload" into Alfred to force the application cache to be refreshed; You're seeing the pre-Catalina and Catalina location for your apps, so reloading will remove any old legacy locations. Cheers, Vero

    Connect two Copy to Clipboard Output, but add a Delay Utility between them (even 0.5 seconds worked, in my tests). On the second Copy to Clipboard Output, have {clipboard:1} instead of {query}.

    @MVR London Did you type "reload" into Alfred? This will refresh the app cache for any apps that may no longer exist in the old location. Cheers, Vero

    It would be nice (especially for larger iPads) to have the option to have more icons displayed on the Alfred Remote app. The icon size could be decreased (and/or there could be an option to hide the pages on the left). I would personally love 30+ icons on the iPad remote.

    Converting Files (PDF to JPEG)

    Not directly, no. Alfred is a launcher, not an automation app. It is designed to run things when you tell it to, and its native integration with other applications generally doesn't extend beyond telling them to open things, and in some cases, allowing you to search for the thing to open (e.g. 1Password or browser bookmarks). Alfred can run your Automator workflow for you, though. Or an AppleScript (or shell script etc.). But essentially, if you want to do more than just open something, it's up to you to first write the script/Automator workflow to do what you want, and then tell Alfred how you'd like to run it (keyword/hotkey).

    I'm having exactly the same behaviour when I'm working in Final Cut Pro - It looks like it might be something to do with GPU usage (my Mac has a separate GPU). If I minimise FCP and wait for a few seconds and then re-open Alfred, it works. I didn't know that Classic would behave normally - just tried that now and it seems OK. Maybe it's something to do with transparency on some of the appearances? I've tried disabling Automatic Graphics Switching and the issue keeps happening - maybe it's to do with how Alfred renders while something else is using the GPU?

    Snippet Creator

    I don't, was just being lazy. Updated to actually parse the query rather than sticking it in a list and hoping for the best.

    What do you mean "wrong folder"? Is Alfred not finding applications it should find? Catalina moves the system to a separate, read-only partition, so built-in applications are no longer in /Applications. As I understand it, selecting the "macOS Applications folder" option adds Catalina's new directories to your Search Scope.

    Ah. Well, I was unaware there was a way to do this in Alfred, so I've learned my new thing for the day.

    The simple answer is "use a snippet if possible" because Alfred will do that for you. More generally, you need to save the current contents of the clipboard (using, e.g., pbpaste), run your Paste action, wait for a fraction of a second for the paste to complete, and then restore the clipboard (pbcopy). The problem is that pbcopy and pbpaste only understand text. If you want it to work with all types of data, you'll have to mess around with AppKit and NSPasteboard.

    Recognize 3,360/2 as math

    @chriscalo Take a look at the Calculator preferences and set your preferred thousand separators so that thousands are set to commas: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/calculator/ Cheers, Vero

    This is now the actual location of apps in Catalina. Andrew is planning on adding a bit of logic to be able to show the virtual locations of the apps (/Applications/.../) in a future release Cheers, Vero

    @unitof Alfred is showing the actual location of the apps as passed back to him by macOS when searching. I'm going to be adding a bit of logic to be able to show the virtual locations of the apps (/Applications/.../) in a future release. Cheers, Andrew

    Every app search results in doubles

    @wealthychef Type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache first. If the issue is with Alfred having cached the old and new location, that'll resolve it. If you still see two at that point, then macOS may have got itself into a more serious muddle, and is actually providing duplicate results to Alfred. Which version of Alfred and which macOS build are you using? Cheers, Vero

    This workflow should kinda do what you want. Note, you also have to sleep in the Python code because calling an External Trigger returns immediately. It doesn't wait for the trigger to finish.

    Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

    Hello, Why not work in Alfred 4?

    When I type in ens in Alfred, it directly opens up Evernote without giving me a chance to search, which is not what I want. It was working perfectly fine before - i.e, I could search the note in Alfred and hit Enter to open it, instead of opening Evernote. Any suggestions to fix this?

    Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4 (Alfred 4)

    >Evernote 6+ from Evernote.com So the workflow doesn't function on Evernote in the browser?! Do I have to download EN? How for the Mac? I'm on the Evernote free plan. When continuing writing after "ens" it changes to a Google search, so it's not working with EN online?! / Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! With best regards, Omar KN
