  1. Cannot Enable Alfred Snippets

    @schaefera Can I confirm that you're all sorted now that you've added the Alfred Text Service manually? I've re-tested this on our various OS versions and it's working as expected, so I'm not sure what happened in your scenario, but if you're all set up and able to use snippets now, that's what matters Cheers, Vero
  2. Sorting Snipets

    @littleluce @henderea In which context are you referring to this? Using the "snip" keyword in Alfred's main window? In this view, snippets have always reordered by most frequently used. If you prefer to see your snippets always in the same order, set a hotkey for the Snippet Viewer (Features > Snippets > Viewer Hotkey) or access them via the Clipboard Viewer hotkey. Having said that, I'd recommend setting up snippet auto-expansion if you use these snippets often, then you can expand them by simply typing their keyword, which will be expanded to the full text snippet. Personally, I use these hundreds of times a day for my most-used bits of text, and it's the quickest way to paste in pre-defined text. More info on setting up text expansion here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/#expansion Cheers, Vero
  3. @bzzzl Welcome to the forum! Removing fallback searches doesn't make Alfred any more minimal, as the fallback searches will only show when no other results are found. Just make sure your Fallback searches are set to only show if no other results are found (which is the default setting) rather than intelligently showing at the bottom of the results list. Cmd + Return is simply a way to force using the default fallback search when the query also happens to match a local result. This feature won't be changing, so I would encourage you to choose at least one fallback search, allowing you to use Cmd + Return when relevant. [Moving thread to Discussion & Help] Cheers, Vero
  4. @vermeer We've tested this on both Sierra and High Sierra, and are unable to replicate this issue. Just to be certain that you're on the latest update, if you go to the General tab, do you see v3.6 on the left just above the big purple bar? This should confirm you're on the latest update If so, do you have at least one existing snippet collection? The collection should be automatically selected in the dropdown menu when popping up the snippet creation window. If no collection has yet been created, you should see an error message letting you know that the snippet can't be saved until you create a collection. Could you try restarting your Mac to see whether this behaviour returns to normal after a fresh start? Finally, if the issue persists, please open Console.app and see whether there are any Alfred-related error messages when attempting to save a snippet. Cheers, Vero
  5. Search Drive File Stream

    @Peterp @Ghyslain @Xavez The Google team have stated that the File Stream doesn't currently support Spotlight, which means that other apps - like Alfred - that rely on the metadata normally provided by files on your Mac are also unable to present results from File Stream. You can find the statement made by the Google team, as well as a link where you can express your interest in indexing being supported, here: Cheers, Vero
  6. @Jersey Welcome to the forum. Please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile before asking Powerpack-specific questions, e.g. relating to workflows. Thanks!
  7. Hi @MattB and welcome to the forum Take a look at the "Simple To-Do list" workflow, which you'll find under Workflows > Examples (at the bottom of the sidebar), you'll see a workflow that essentially does what you have in mind. In this instance, the log being created is a to-do list, but it can easily be repurposed. To try it out, install the workflow, then type "todo" and the task, e.g. buy bananas. Choose which list you want to add it to and it'll be appended to the relevant text file. Once you've created the lists and added content to them, you can type "vtodo" to view your list. Based on this, you can either modify that workflow or create your own using the same principle of List Filters to choose which list to add to, and Arg/Vars to store your query. Cheers, Vero
  8. @Palmira Welcome to the forum. Have you tried simply restarting Chrome? There's an issue in Chrome in the recent updates, where the browser needs to be restarted after update, as it otherwise doesn't open URLs as it should (from Alfred or any other sources). Cheers, Vero
  9. Alfred crashing repeatedly on macOS 10.13.1

    @jeremycherfas I see you are using an early version of macOS High Sierra. The crash is actually a lower level crash in the macOS Metadata API in macOS 10.13.1. We raised this bug with Apple and they closed it as fixed in macOS 10.13.2. If you update to the latest macOS (currently 10.13.3), this crash should go away Cheers, Vero
  10. Just to clarify: This location is only applicable for Evernote 6 downloaded from the Evernote.com website. If you've downloaded Evernote 6 from the App Store, the data is somewhere else, and isn't compatible with the workflow. As soon as I hear back from Evernote, we'll let you all know what the status is
  11. Not finding files/folders on internal HD

    Hi @macalcoholic - I responded to your original email from your att.com address to our support address on 17th Feb. Before delving into specifics relating to your question about FileMaker files, please follow the steps in the Indexing Troubleshooting page, as instructed. If this guide on searching and the steps to rebuild your index don't resolve the issue, please provide specific answers to the questions I asked in my earlier post so that we can help you further. Without these answers, I can't provide further insight. Could you also please confirm whether you are a Powerpack license holder? With the Powerpack, you would be able to create a file filter to search specifically for your FileMaker files. Cheers, Vero
  12. I've contacted Evernote support by Twitter and didn't hear back from them, so I've emailed support to find out what's changed and how we can get this wonderful workflow working again. As soon as I have anything to report, I'll pass that on to @Carlos-Sz and pop an update here too In the meantime, for those who want an uninterrupted service, if you catch this before updating to Evernote 7, stay on Evernote 6 until further notice. Cheers, Vero
  13. @JohnDoe Yes, the more current versions of Alfred's newsletter signup accepts these domains. It's likely you're still using Alfred 1.2 from the Mac App Store, which pre-dates the rise of these domains, so please download Alfred 3 from https://www.alfredapp.com or sign up to the newsletter via our website footer. Cheers, Vero
  14. Optional argument not showing up

    @owlasea Welcome to the forum. Please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile before asking workflow-related questions. This is only visible to admins and allows us to confirm your registered user status. Cheers, Vero
  15. @Moody You can find out how to perform file actions here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/file-actions-from-alfred-or-finder/ By default, this is the order of the file actions so Delete is Cmd + 9, but you can 1. remove file actions that aren't relevant for you, and 2. allow the sort order to change based on the file actions you used the most, so if you mostly use Delete, it'll come to the top of the list. Cheers, Vero
