  1. @Alitejawi This is a sign that indexing is broken or disabled on your Mac. Did you tinker with this? This will mean that Spotlight, Alfred and any other apps that rely on the metadata index will be unable to return results. In the future, please post Big Sur issues in the Big Sur bugs forum specifically rather than replying to a thread for an older OS version. Cheers, Vero
  2. @dentarg I assumed you were using the Text Expansion snippets feature, but it sounds like you were either using the Snippets Viewer, or the snip keyword? Text expansion is by far the most efficient way to use snippets If you're still having issues with either of those, let me know exactly how you were using it and I'll help you out... Cheers, Vero
  3. @Stephyn B Welcome to the forum! As per my suggestion two posts ago, please follow this step: When upgrading or restoring from a Time Machine backup, Catalina forgets permissions, so you need to reset them. This is all you need to do to get started again Cheers, Vero
  4. @dentarg Could you please go through the steps to reset permissions? Launch Alfred's preferences to the General tab > Request Permissions > Accessibility. In this System preferences panel, remove Alfred from the Accessibility permissions if he was already there, then add him again. This is a more common issue on Catalina, but may happen on Mojave as well, where macOS loses resolution of which apps have permission to use accessibility (required for pasting snippets for you) and re-setting it is sufficient to grant the permission again. If the issue persists, please provide more details about the behaviour you're seeing: - When you type your snippet, does it disappear? - Do you hear an error beep? - What app/website are you pasting into? Does it work in TextEdit? - What is your snippet keyword? Are you definitely typing the right one? - Is the auto-expansion feature enabled? Is the box checked for the specific snippet you want to paste? You'll also find more information about troubleshooting Snippets here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/snippets/ Cheers, Vero
  5. @choc With the Powerpack, you can change the fallback searches to anything you like, including DDG https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/default-results/fallback-searches/ Cheers, Vero
  6. @Kubo Welcome to the forum If you're using Alfred 4.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the apps you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete. Pop the results of a few apps in your reply below and I'll help you work out what's happening. Cheers, Vero
  7. @kimillian Could you also please specify what app you're pasting into? Please test anything in plain text TextEdit, as it's the most standard native app. You'll then be able to establish whether the issue is with the destination app manipulating what you're pasting. For example, Google Docs tends to manipulate what you paste.
  8. @killmoms This isn't going to be a bug - it'll be because the hotkey is reserved by something else on your Mac. Once you work out what feature or third-party app is reserving Ctrl + Space and you un-set it there, you'll be able to use it for Alfred if that's the combo you'd like to use. Cheers, Vero
  9. @obadiahcruz Welcome to the forum. Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile before asking questions relating to Powerpack-only features? Cheers, Vero
  10. @alfred_user It's not possible to show more rows, so just type part of the clipboard entry you're looking for to narrow down the results to the most relevant ones Alternatively use Fn + page down to go down a full page of clipboard results. Cheers, Vero
  11. @PizzaGuyRidesAtDawn There are a few ways to work with the fact that you're using Windows. You're correcting that pasting assumes Cmd + V will paste the current pasteboard content. The simplest way to deal with this is to pop up Alfred's Snippets Viewer, choose your snippet and use Cmd + C to copy it to your clipboard, then Ctrl + V to paste to your VM. I'm not familiar with Remote Desktop, but here are some steps I gave to a Parallels user some time ago, much of which would apply here: However, this comes with the caveat that I do not have access to Remote Desktop to test it, so you'll likely need to fiddle around a little with your VM. If all else fails, copying from the Snippet/Clipboard Viewer option will be your best option. Let me know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  12. @PizzaGuyRidesAtDawn Welcome to the forum! Are you logging in remotely into a macOS or Windows machine? There are quite a few factors to take into account, so given you're already a Powerpack user, have you simply tried to see if snippets work in your Remote Desktop scenario? If you can provide more details about your particular setup, what has and hasn't worked so far, it'll be a lot easier for us to help you out Cheers, Vero
  13. @bubbafat Welcome to the forum If you know your snippets already, you might benefit from using the Snippet Text Expansion instead. In that case, there's no need to show the Snippet/Clipboard Viewer and risk exposing personal information. More about using snippets for text expansion here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/ Alternatively, if they're not snippets you know/want to learn by heart, you could create a List Filter that contains only the snippets you're likely to use on the big screen, and connect it to a Copy to Clipboard output pasting to the frontmost app, allowing you to choose from that list and paste without showing your actual Snippets collections. Here's more info on List Filters: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/list-filter/ Cheers, Vero
  14. @QBay Thanks for adding your details. Could you please open Alfred's preferences to General > Request Permissions... and go to the Accessibility permissions? Once you've authenticated, please remove and re-add Alfred from the Accessibility permissions. macOS can sometimes lose track of which apps have been granted these permissions, and re-setting them usually resolves the issue. Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  15. @QBay Welcome to the forum Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile, as the Clipboard feature is a Powerpack feature? I'll then be happy to help you troubleshoot why you might not be seeing your Clipboard entries pasted as expected. Cheers, Vero
