    Dropbox Smart Sync files cause crash

    Hi @Cqwte Could you pop an email to info@ with the crash logs from Console so that I can take a further look at this? Cheers, Vero
  2. @mrtechnique Yes, this is a very simple workflow, so you could either view the list and move an item down to a "Done" list or delete the item. I tend to do the latter, so I didn't plan for a mechanism to mark as done. Some users have created far cleverer to do lists, or workflows that integrate with existing to-do list apps, so you can also look out for those Cheers, Vero
  3. @mrtechnique Welcome to the forum! If you take a look at the "About This Workflow" notes (by clicking on the [x] in the top right of the workflow, you'll find the following info: This is also where you can change the path to a location of your choice. If you want to view the lists you're creating, typing the keyword "vtodo" into Alfred shows you the existing lists so that you can open the relevant one. Hope this helps Vero

    Download link not working

    @michaelg04 Welcome to the forum The link is working normally, so is it possible that you're on a network (e.g. a corporate network, coffee shop) or on a Mac where access to content delivery networks like Cachefly is restricted? Pop an email to info@ if you're still having issues with this after trying from a different internet connection or computer. Cheers, Vero

    Search Calendar Events

    @deanishe Very true I suppose my workflows tend to be quite simple ones that only change in very rare cases, and are created on-the-fly as someone needs them. This particular link change is due to Dropbox's policy change (last year?) where the public folder became uhh no longer public. I'll likely pop all of mine on Github soon

    Search Calendar Events

    Hi @jeromecarney - You're right, the link stopped working when Dropbox changed the way their shared URLs work. I've updated the link above and you can find it here too: https://www.dropbox.com/s/aa2y8morc97k5r3/Calendar search.alfredworkflow?dl=0 I've tested it from El Capitan up to High Sierra and it works great with Apple's built-in Calendar Cheers, Vero
  7. @iJemz At what frequency is the Google spreadsheet updated? Do you have to use that source, or can you export it to use locally? If you can use it locally, create a CSV file, which you can then use with a List Filter where you can search or browse for particular terms and find its translated match. You can then add a Copy to Clipboard output to paste to the frontmost app when pressing return. Given how easy it is to drop in a CSV file, you could easily replace the list of terms periodically. Fellow users may come up with ideas on working with Google Spreadsheets, but I thought I'd suggest this as an alternative way of searching and locating your translations. Cheers, Vero

    Launching apps but missing first character

    Hi @andrewsleigh and welcome to the forum! Could you please let me know what your Alfred hotkey is set to, and whether you're on High Sierra? If it's Cmd + Space, it's likely that Siri on High Sierra is interfering with it. In the System Preferences for Siri, disable holding Cmd for Siri, as this is the most likely culprit. You can also check that in the Spotlight preferences, Cmd + Space isn't re-set for Spotlight and interfering. [Edited to add: And of course, make sure you're on the latest Alfred version (3.6.1 at this time) for full High Sierra compatibility.] Let me know if the above resolves the issue for you Cheers, Vero
  10. @Gary King This sounds like a highly unusual and unexpected behaviour, so if you could provide answers to the few questions below, it might help work out what's happening on your Mac. :) Can you please share your file filter first, so that I can take a look? (you can send me a link privately if you'd prefer not to share it with fellow users) What file name and file type are you searching for? What's the exact query you type to search for it in Alfred outside of your file filter? Is this the first file filter workflow you've created? If you use another file filter (existing or new), do search results appear as expected? If you can think of anything else out of the ordinary either with your Mac and its data, or the files you're searching for, do let me know so that we can work out what's happening :) Cheers, Vero

    Workflows dont appear in results

    @QuaCKeReD I'm not familiar with Resilio Sync, but this is the only non-standard element in your responses, so is the likely source of your issues. Could you please temporarily set your sync folder to a location on your local Mac, e.g. an Alfred folder in your Documents, then see whether you get the same behaviour? If this fixes your issue, it'll confirm that Resilio Sync isn't a suitable solution for syncing your preferences. We recommend Dropbox as the tried-and-tested way of syncing preferences, as files are stored locally on your Mac, and Dropbox copes admirably with file conflicts. On the other hand, we advise against using iCloud and Google Drive, which have proven to be unsuitable due to files being unavailable on startup (in GD's case) and both struggling with resolving file conflicts. More details here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/advanced/sync/ Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Vero

    Workflows dont appear in results

    @QuaCKeReD The logs above don't provide much insight into what's happening, so could you please answer these few questions? * Do you sync your preferences? If so, which services do you use and what path is set as your sync folder? * Which version of macOS and Alfred are you using? * Is there anything unusual about the setup of your Mac? E.g. User directory in a non-standard location, data on external/network drives. etc? * How long do you use your Mac after a restart before you see this issue again? When you open your preferences, do you see workflows populating the left sidebar of the Workflows section? As this isn't a common issue, the more information you can provide, the more likely we can help you establish exactly what's happening on your Mac Cheers, Vero

    reveal snippet

    @chan Provided I've understood your question correctly, if you want to edit an existing snippet, arrow to it in the Snippet Viewer and press Cmd + S to pop up the editing sheet for the snippet Cheers, Vero

    Undo deletion of Snippet collection

    @primeminister Your best bet is to go to Time Machine and find your Alfred.alfredpreferences file from prior to the deletion, as this file will contain all of your snippets. You can then either replace the entire Alfred.alfredpreferences file, or navigate within the package contents to grab the folder of snippets that matches the one you've accidentally deleted. Cheers, Vero

    Houdah or Tembo Searches?

    @chajes Welcome to the forum! Can you give some examples of what you're searching for, and what you're typing into Alfred to try to find them? It might be worth looking at the indexing troubleshooting page to make sure your files are indeed in Alfred's index, etc: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
