  1. @vermeer Testing by simply copying "2*2" with no new line from Evernote, then pasting into a new, plain text TextEdit window adds a new line as well. It's worth noting that there's a difference between the content pasted from Evernote as plain text and as rich text; The rich text version saved to the macOS pasteboard doesn't include a new line, while the plain text one does, which is a bug in Evernote, should you be bothered to report it. This happens no matter what content you copy; Just try copying any other text from Evernote and pasting it to a plain text window vs a rich text window. When pasting into Alfred's search window, Alfred doesn't process the text in any way to give the most predictable results, as you may want to process the multi-line input with a workflow or use it as-is. It just so happens that Evernote adds unnecessary new lines to the content you copied in the plain text version. Edited to add: This is a *relatively* new bug in Evernote; On an older macOS version, I'm running Evernote 7.2.3 (July 2018 build), the last version supported on El Capitan, and this bug doesn't exist. Cheers, Vero
  2. Hi @Amandeep Jawa, Welcome to the forum This isn't currently possible, so for now, you'll need to use a workflow for this: Connect your Snippet Trigger (or keyword) to an Arg & Var Utility to put the clipboard content into variables Connect it to a Run Script action, where the variables you've created will be available as environment variables, so you can construct the string you want Use a Copy to Clipboard Output, with "Automatically paste to frontmost app" selected to paste it like a snippet It's worth noting that transform syntax is coming to the clipboard placeholders in the future, but for now, it takes a little more work. If you need any further help, just post your workflow and we'll help you out. Cheers, Vero
  3. @pecheny Could you please try this using one of the built-in keyboard layouts and let me know whether the behaviour is normal? I've tested this in Mojave between built-in keyboard layouts, and the behaviour is as expected. Check that you don't have "Automatically switch to a document's input source" ticked in System Prefs > Keyboard > Input Sources, and that you have specified Alfred's Force Keyboard Layout in the advanced prefs. When you relaunch Alfred and go to the Advanced tab, is your custom keyboard layout still selected? What about when you use a built-in keyboard layout? I'll move this into Discussion & Help to see whether anyone else can provide input as it seems specific to custom layouts. Cheers, Vero
  4. @ssoriche I'm afraid those are quite unsuitable keyword choices as "I'd" is something you'll type many times a day, assuming I'm seeing that correctly, and it's "I'd" as in "I'd like a coffee, please"? As with the tips in the link I provided, either prefix your keyword with an unusual non-alphanumeric character, (e.g. !date or \\time) and keep it to something that's easy to reach on the keyboard and type. At this point, your suffix or last character needs to be specified. Cheers, Vero
  5. @AXLr80r As you can see, folders are being returned, which I assume are in your Default Results essentials. (They're cropped out but I assume that's the case) To find a file, you'll need to ensure you prefix your search with a space (which is the equivalent of the "open" keyword) E.g. "[spacebar]ev3ryday" should return your file Here's more info about file search: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/file-search/#file-search Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  6. That's exactly how snippets are intended to work; Once you've typed the entirety of the snippet, it will be expanded. If you want the keyword to include a space at the end, so that you must type ;dd[space], then add the space as a suffix to the collection, or at the end of your snippet keyword. Expand snippets mid-string refers to the keyword being typed not at the beginning of a set of characters, e.g. if your keyword is "ptime" but you type "uptime", "ptime" will only expand to your assigned snippet if mid-string expansion is enabled. I'd encourage you to take a look at the tips on choosing good keywords for snippets here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/#tips-expansion Cheers, Vero
  7. @AXLr80r What are you expecting to find with the last keyword? What kind of file type? Is it in your default results? Have you checked the metadata for the relevant files/folders to make sure the metadata is there? What's the path of the file you're searching for, and is it in your Default Results' Search Scope? (Please provide that screenshot too) Cheers, Vero
  8. @AXLr80r We're happy to help you but in order to do this, you'll need to provide more info. What are you typing into Alfred to search for this? Provide screenshots of your Default Results and File Search preferences I can see you've been Alfred for a number of years so were you previously able to find these files and the issue started recently? Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? The more information you provide, the more likely we'll be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  9. As you can see from the results, there is no metadata for this file, as most of these fields should be populated. The first step would be to rebuild your Mac's metadata index, which you can do by going to Alfred's Advanced preferences by clicking "Rebuild macOS Metadata" and following the steps. This can take up to an hour to complete, but once it's done, dragging the same file should show some metadata. Please do this and let us know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  10. @KarenZ Reading through this thread, there's some conflicting information as to what is and isn't working (as you're referring to using Cmd + S in the Clipboard Viewer to save a clipboard item as a snippet, but also saying the Clipboard History isn't working) so could you please pop us an email on info@ with the following information: Screenshots of your Alfred Clipboard Viewer Step by step of what keywords or hotkeys you're using to try to use Clipboard History Step by step of how you're trying to use Snippets, including what keyword you're typing, which app you're trying to expand snippets in An export of the Snippets collection you're using in your example above (right-click the collection and choose Export) We'll then take it from there. Cheers, Vero
  11. @kaneru Also, have you tried typing "reload" into Alfred first? This may clear any stale data from the application cache if the apps have already been removed. Cheers, Vero
  12. @Ryan Lv Is this app overriding Ctrl + Cmd + Q? This is the key combo Alfred relies on for the Lock command, and it sounds like your IM client may be stealing it. Try disabling or changing the hotkey in the other application. Cheers, Vero
  13. @rjsierra This particular hotkey combination is not a default Alfred combo, so you'll have set it in one of the following places: In a Workflow: You can view all your workflow hotkeys by clicking the cog in the workflows sidebar and choosing "Show hotkeys" In Features > File Search > Navigation In Features > File Search > Actions You can either change them or highlight them and press backspace to remove the hotkey combination altogether. Cheers, Vero
  14. @helwaser If you're referring to the web-based importer by Daniel Diekmeier, it's still working fine: http://alfred.danieldiekmeier.de When posting in the future, please do not post all in capitals. It looks like you're shouting and comes across as rude. Writing normally is sufficient, and a community member will reply to you Cheers, Vero
  15. @ssoriche It looks like you've enabled "Expand snippets mid-string" in Alfred's Features > Snippets > Auto Expansion Options, so disable this to avoid the mid-string expansions you're seeing: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/advanced/ I'm able to use 'd and 't as shortcuts and "I'd" doesn't trigger, as "Expand mid-string" is disabled. Cheers, Vero
