    I'm here to help you be as productive as possible with Alfred, so don't hesitate to post on the forum to ask a question.

    There are many fantastic and helpful users who might also answer your question, so be nice to them. Most of all, enjoy yourselves! :)

  1. @PhilipC All license-related matters are handled privately by email, so drop an email to our info@ email address with your details and I'll help you out Cheers, Vero
  2. @H B Assuming you're using the simple Mail workflow I created, it requires that you're using Mail.app for your email, and that the emails are stored in the default location (~/Library/Mail/). If you type "em" and see the workflow's "Search Mail.app" with the subtext "Search subject line and email content" but that it disappears as soon as you start typing a query, you'll see the fallback searches (Google, etc) if there are no matches. This can happen if either there are no matches in your available or emails, or the emails simply aren't available (e.g. not in the default location), which you can check by navigating to the folder and checking for content. Cheers, Vero
  3. @Sethl13 Take a look at the built-in "Should I watch this movie?" example, which opens multiple sites with the same search term. You'll find it in the Workflows tab, under [+] > Examples > Should I watch this movie. Cheers, Vero
  4. @liujl Alfred makes standard API call to move an item to the trash, and when this doesn't work, it's an indication that there's an underlying problem in macOS. - Have you configured your Mac in any non-standard way (e.g. moved your home folder to an external drive)? - Have you changed your user account (e.g. change username)? - Have you ever done a non-Apple restore of your user account? Any of the above could cause a deeper issue, resulting in the API call failing when Alfred asks macOS to move the file to trash. Cheers, Vero
  5. @huzhihang First, open your System Preferences, and check that Alfred 3 is in the Accessibility permissions list. The process differs a little from Alfred 4, but this will provide some further info: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/#integration Next, go to Features > Clipboard, and ensure that you've checked the box next to the content types you want Alfred to copy to clipboard: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/#clipboard-history Cheers, Vero
  6. @Chris Spiegl Create a workflow with an overall icon for the whole workflow, then add various Keyword > Web Search object pairs? Then you can copy/paste your object pairs and retain the icon, plus it gives you flexibility in how you want the particular search to operate (e.g. if one benefits from being opened in an alternative browser, etc) Cheers, Vero
  7. @huzhihang Which version of Alfred are you using? I'll then be able to help you further Cheers, Vero
  8. @Jakub Sypiański Could you start by providing more insight into what your setup is and what specifically isn't working, as your current report is very vague? E.g. are you exclusively working in that keyboard layout or are you switching around between multiple layouts? If your keyboard layout is always set to Bepo, and you set your hotkeys to a particular combo, the keycode will be set to the physical keys combination. Unless there's something completely different in the way that keyboard layout works compared to other ones, this should work as expected. If you switch keyboard layouts frequently, however, you'll need to press the same key locations, rather than the same letters (e.g. Cmd + 4th key from the left, rather than Cmd + E). As you observed, this isn't an issue that's been raised by anyone else to date, but if you provide more details, we might be able to point you in the right direction to get the results you want. Cheers, Vero
  9. @smagdali Practically, yes, it achieves the same thing but this is the Apple black box so there may be subtle differences. Using the Rebuild macOS Metadata button works for the vast majority of users, and uses the command line to rebuild. However, for the occasional user where this doesn't seem to work as expected, dragging folders in and out of the Privacy tab seems to help. It's worth noting that there are known indexing issues in Catalina, as well as issues with iCloud files disappearing, both of which are accepted bugs by Apple and will hopefully be fixed in the next beta. Cheers, Vero
  10. @BoD Change the bookmarks feature (under Features > Web Bookmarks) to show bookmarks "via keyword" instead of "in default results". That way, you'll use "bm" (or a keyword of your choice) followed by a bookmark's name to search for bookmarks, and they won't show up in default results. Cheers, Vero
  11. @Nicco Catalina still has some indexing and permissions issues, and we're keeping a close eye on improvements during the betas. You can try dragging your whole drive (or an enclosing folder of the files you're searching for) to Spotlight's Privacy tab, wait 30 seconds, drag it out, wait a few minutes while macOS reindexes the drive. Search again in Alfred and see how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  12. @33adn2 Removing the Applications folder and reloading the cache should be sufficient; I've just tested it and it works as expected. This may indicate that your preferences aren't being persisted/written to disk as they should be. Do you sync your preferences, and if so, what service and path are you using? Cheers, Vero
  13. @DavidL As you know, Catalina is in beta; The existence of a Trash folder, and granting apps sufficient permissions to access it, is the responsibility of the OS. This is the kind of bug you need to report to Apple's Beta programme. Cheers, Vero
  14. @Vit This is a known issue accepted by Apple where Catalina doesn't correctly recognise legitimately signed and notarised apps: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/catalina/#notarisation Cheers, Vero
  15. @David Craig This is a known issue in Catalina; Alfred is fully signed and Notarised, but Catalina doesn't recognise notarisation correctly in the latest build: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/catalina/#notarisation Simply ensure that you download Alfred from alfredapp.com and not a third-party source and you'll be fine. We're counting on Apple to resolve the issue in a future beta. Cheers, Vero
