  1. @tullyhansen You can also use a star as wildcard to match partial words, e.g. "*pet" will match "Snippet" Cheers, Vero
  2. @lightheaded Have you reported the crash to Evernote? This isn't an Alfred crash, and only seems to affect a small number of users, so your best bet is to drop the Evernote support team a line. Check that you're using the right version of Evernote (from their website, not the App Store) and the latest version of the workflow (v9 beta 2), as most users (myself included) have been using the workflow without any crashes or odd behaviour. Cheers, Vero
  3. @runard Are you looking to type one keyword and have multiple URLs open (either static URLs or adding your search term to it)? If so, look in Alfred's built-in examples for "Should I watch this movie?" This example is set up for you to use one keyword to launch IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes and YouTube with the keyword you want to search for. Cheers, Vero
  4. @hipyhop Welcome to the forum! Please make sure you search the forum before creating a new post, as this is a very active community, so you'll often find that things like this are already discussed somewhere. For example, this issue is discussed here, and Andrew provided a workflow-based solution for the time being. Cheers, Vero
  5. Zotquery 5 cannot use in Alfred 3

    @Jason_xiao Welcome to the forum. Before taking part in Powerpack-related discussions, please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile. This is only visible to admins and allows us to confirm your Powerpack status. Cheers, Vero
  6. @Heydomdom Thanks for filling in your details Pop an email to info@ for license-related questions and we'll be happy to help you out. With regards to your original question, take a look at these few examples depending on the outcome you want: If your queries are always the same (e.g. always the same four stock symbols) Connect one keyword to four "Open URL" objects, with each one pre-filled with one of the stock symbols. You can then type the keyword and press Enter, and all four pages will open. Entering multiple queries separately: Take a look at the built-in workflow in Alfred, under the + button in the bottom left > Examples > Simple To-Do List. In that workflow, I'm using two variables; The first is typed (the task I want to do) and the second is picked from a List Filter (the list to which I want to add it), each of which is saved in an Arg & Vars utility, then called later in the "Append to file" object to form the name of the list to which I want to add the task. @Andrew's going to share his own example for splitting a query into four as well, as another way to do it. If you then start creating your own workflow and need further help, add it to this thread and fellow users can help you get it completed Cheers, Vero
  7. @Heydomdom Welcome to the forum! Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile? This is only visible to admins (Andrew and myself) and allows us to confirm your Powerpack status first. We'll then be happy to help you out with your question. Cheers, Vero
  8. Searching file system for Google Docs

    @Jack Vaughan Welcome to the forum. If you're using Google File Stream, another forum user @able asked the Google Suite support about indexing, and below was their answer: "Unfortunately currently the File stream does't fully support Spotlight. The files for File stream are not stored in a separate File Stream cache which can't be indexed by Spotlight. There are some reports that if you reinstall the File stream it will work for a while but this is not an officially supported feature yet. There is an existing feature idea from the Cloud connect portal. You can vote for it as well and I hope that more options are added in future updates https://www.cloudconnect.goog/ideas/11068. I was checking for that as well but currently there are no reported workarounds besides reinstalling the app which is reported to work in some cases. I could't see any settings you can change to make this work" As such, if you're using File Stream, these files won't be indexed until Google Drive provide macOS with a way to do this. You can follow the link in their post to add your vote to request it. Cheers, Vero [Edit: Looks like @vitor beat me to the reply ]
  9. @ae6dx You can pop up Alfred, paste in the path, then use the right arrow to show File Actions and Reveal in Finder. You can then simply drag it to the Accessibility window. You may have to first type in your user account password, if the lock is closed at the bottom of the Accessibility window. Cheers, Vero
  10. @si7 As far as I can tell, Google Chrome updated in the background and got itself into a muddle, failing to open URLs given to it by macOS and other apps. Hopefully it's a one-off and doesn't occur in future Chrome updates, but it's unrelated to Alfred. It just so happens that Alfred tends to be the first app users launch a URL or web search from. Cheers, Vero
  11. @si7 Are you using Google Chrome? If so, you'll need to restart Chrome. It looks like over the past few days, Chrome has updated in the background for users, and won't open new URLs (when clicked from anywhere, not just Alfred.) until it's restarted. Cheers, Vero
  12. @Ryan As suggested by Vitor, to do this, use the keywords "define" to check the definition of a word and hit Enter to open it in Dictionary. Similarly, use the keyword "spell" to confirm the spelling of a word, and hit Enter to copy the correct spelling to your clipboard. Cheers, Vero
  13. render bug - vertical centering of text

    @testop Welcome to the forum! As you're asking about custom themes, which is a Powerpack-specific feature, could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile? This is only visible to admins (Andrew and myself) and allows us to confirm that you're a Powerpack license holder. We'll then be happy to help you out Cheers, Vero
  14. @Paul Rowe This is a very unusual issue, and it's tricky to establish what's happening based on the information you provided. At this point, your best bet would be to reset Alfred's preferences to defaults on one of your Macs, and reinstall Alfred, to remove any possibility of corrupted preferences being the source of this issue. You can reset Alfred by following these steps: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/reset-alfred/ You can then re-download Alfred from our website, and let me know how you get on when next setting your hotkey.. Cheers, Vero
  15. @playmakerx When you're in the Appearance tab, click Options in the bottom left. You can then recheck the "Auto-highlight top result" checkbox in the left column to re-enable this. Cheers, Vero
