    Is it possible to set multiple hotkeys?

    That's a bit more complicated than it need be. In the Hotkey, just change Action from "Pass through to workflow" to "Show Alfred". Job done. I think you do need to simulate a key combo to show the Clipboard Viewer, however.

    Hello, I don't use Alfred currently to manage my clipboard (I use the app Paste) for one single reason : In Paste, I can select multiple results (with the shift key) to paste all the results at the same time, which seems to be impossible in Alfred. Is there any solution to do that in Alfred, or is it planned in a future release ? This topic is about the clipboard, but I have exactly the same issue with Chrome bookmarks results in Alfred : I would like to be able to select more than one result to open the selection in several tabs (my workaround today is to create workflows, but it would be way more efficient to just be able to select multiple results for your search, like selecting multiple files in Finder). Anyway, thanks for this great app that I use everyday. Edit : Added a video

    I don't think this can be done within settings, but two workarounds: - If you have Keyboard Maestro it's simple to assign a "hot key trigger" (whatever key combo you want to use for Alfred) to a macro that simulates the keystroke that is already set in Alfred. For example, you can tell KM to fire command-space when you press x and it will show Alfred (if you have the Alfred Trigger set to command-space in settings) - Another solution would be to set up a Hotkey in Alfred that simulates a key combo using AppleScript. Like this to show Alfred : on alfred_script(q) tell application "System Events" to keystroke {Space} using {command down} end alfred_script Not sure if there are any downsides, like delay or conflicts, to doing it internally with Alfred using the Hotkey+AppleScript.

    You can already use Cmd+C to copy a bookmark's URL in Alfred. It even closes Alfred, so you can paste it immediately.

    First party sync service

    Yes, it seems to have improved a lot to me as well. I'll give it a go and have Arq running versioned backups on the Alfred folder in iCloud. Thanks for the help!

    What are the most common Alfred hotkeys?

    The default hotkey is Alt + Space, so you can always leave it at that. Cmd + Space is a popular alternative, a familiar one as it's the default Spotlight hotkey. It takes a little work to turf out Spotlight from this combination (https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/cmd-space/) I wouldn't recommend using Enter as part of your combo, as you're then clashing with the very useful Action Modifiers (https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/action-modifiers-quick-alternative-actions/) but Enter is allowed in a hotkey combo - so just keep that in mind if you later use workflows that use action modifiers. Cheers, Vero

    What are the most common Alfred hotkeys?

    Mine is set to this: For similar reason as @vitor. GraphQL servers use cmd + space to get suggestions. I never press those keys though so I activate Alfred by either pressing j and l keys together or with a single press of right command (configured with Karabiner). Although I don't often activate Alfred alone as I have everything bound to an external trigger with Karabiner. I really dislike the overhead of keywords and want to activate my stuff fast. Maybe it works for you too. Although it probably is not as common to do it this way. 🙂

    What are the most common Alfred hotkeys?

    Mine is ⌃␣ (Ctrl + Space). I’ve switched from ⌘␣ because design software tends to use ␣ for a temporary pan tool, ⌘␣ for a temporary zoom in tool, and ⌘⌥␣ for a temporary zoom out tool.

    For reference, it works fine in Alfred 3.

    @Maddog Does that happen frequently on the same apps? I noticed that when I had that feature on, it mostly happened when copying from iTerm2. I started making precisely that to share, and it ended up being way easier than what I was envisioning initially. There you go.

    Hi @Thomas_U, if you select 1Password a couple of times after typing "1", Alfred will learn this is the app you want to prioritise Apple are quite cheeky in the keywords they include in the metadata for iTunes. Here's what's in the metadata: "Music, Radio, Apple Music, Apple Radio, iTunes Radio, Beats 1, Beats One, B1, iCloud Music Library, Apple Music Connect, My Music" Alfred will always learn from your usage, so as long as you pick the 1Password app a few times for that specific keyword, it'll come up first. Cheers, Vero

    OCR: extract text from snapshot

    I recently added the `lang` parameter with `-l` flag: tesseract /tmp/ocr_snapshot.png stdout -l {query} 2>&1 It should allow you to run the command with `OCR fra` for french for example, but it should still work without any parameter. Tried just now and it works (Mac High Sierra & tesseract 3.05.01). Possible solutions: * add a way in the bash script to remove `-l` flag if `{query}` is undefined (don't know how to do this) * downgrade to tesseract 3 as it seems to behave differently in 4 * remove this part in the bash script if you don't need it (see screenshot attached) Hope it helps.

    Antidote 10

    @Grug If you've only just installed the app, it may not yet be indexed by macOS. You can speed this up by dragging the app or your Applications folder to the Spotlight Privacy tab, waiting 30 secs, dragging it back out, waiting 30 secs again. This should have forced the indexing. Once you've done that, type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the application cache. If you still can't find the app, use the Metadata tool to work out whether the information about the app exists: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/mdls/ Cheers, Vero

    Hello Deanishe, Yes, Alfred's clipboard merging feature is great, but you need to decide what you want to paste before to copy your text, which is not always easy.

    Alfred with Multiple Screens

    Hi Laurent, launch Alfred's preferences to Appearance > Options and you'll be able to set Alfred to appear on default screen, mouse screen or, if you're using OS X 10.9 Mavericks, on the active screen (where your current active app is). It's all in there Cheers, Vero

    Try WOX, though it's not as good as Alfred.

    In addition to that, the whole workflow system is heavily based on the UNIX APIs and programs underpinning macOS. So it wouldn't just be a whole different app: very few workflows would run on Windows. You could get a few to run by installing the Windows Subsytem for Linux, but it'd be a wasteland.

    Need this super program on Windows

    Welcome to the forums, @anjak, Though I do not speak for the Alfred team, I’d say there’s a slim chance that is ever going to happen. Alfred’s team is small — two people1 — and only one of them codes. The other takes care of the (often more taxing) administrative work. Alfred takes advantage of macOS’ native APIs and tools. Porting it to Windows would require a whole different app using learning a whole new world of tools and APIs. It’s unlikely it would be worth the overhead. 1. I think there’s a cat as well.
