  1. @Wes Plate You'll find that hotkey combo set in File Search > Navigation. You can either remove it by clicking into the field and pressing backspace, or you can set an alternative key combo. Cheers, Vero PS - Do your Alfred updates
  2. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/sharing-workflows/ Cheers, Vero
  3. @Rost Modech As per @deanishe's reply earlier, this workflow only works on macOS versions earlier than Catalina. Unfortunately, Apple have decided to block third-party apps from accessing certain types of data, including Mail data, in macOS 10.15 Catalina. As such, you won't be able to use the workflow in Catalina. I'll update my first post in that thread to reflect this. Cheers, Vero
  4. @alfred_user The simplest way to add an app is to pop up Alfred, search for the app and drag it to the workflow window I'll pass on the suggestion, but given how simple it already is to add files and apps, I'm not sure we'll be adding this. Cheers, Vero
  5. @leahcim For a File Filter, you can drag in an example file of what you'd like to search. For example, if you want to narrow your file filter to txt files only, you can drag in a text file to the File Types box. Adding UTIs manually is completely optional, but might give some users more flexibility. Cheers, Vero
  6. @pedrodaroza You'll also need to ensure you've granted Alfred Full Disk Access. You can access this via Alfred's General preferences: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/ Cheers, Vero
  7. @rfischmann As @vitor suggests, that should be possible with a workflow. If you come up with a clear idea of what you want to achieve in your sequence, we can likely help you make a workflow for it. E.g. do you need to tab between them? Just paste items 1 2 3 4 or 4 3 2 1 in order? Everyone's requirements and suggestions are wildly different from one another, so a workflow is better than trying to build something that suits everyone within Alfred itself. Cheers, Vero
  8. As I've explained here, Apple have made changes in Catalina, which means third-party apps like Alfred can no longer access Mail data: If Apple get enough feature requests, they may re-grant access for this. Cheers, Vero
  9. @swiggy You'll find details of the Evernote workflow here: You'll need to make sure you're using the correct version of Evernote with the matching version of the workflow; Always download from Evernote.com and not from the Mac App Store, as instructed by the first post in this thread Cheers, Vero
  10. As @deanishe suggested, this is intentional; While we use British English in most documentation/preferences, we made an exception for "license". Having said that, I've now added "licence" to the metadata for that page so that it's found by either spelling options Cheers, Vero
  11. @PeterTrain Could you please specify which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? Taking a look at your Powerpack license, you should update to Alfred 4.0.8, which will cover all paths required to find all apps if you're on Catalina (as Apple have moved apps to a new location in Catalina) Mega Supporters who haven't yet requested their v4 license can upgrade to Alfred 4 here: https://www.alfredapp.com/shop/upgrade/ If the issue persists, please take a look at the indexing troubleshooting page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  12. @Nabil As @vitor said, the snippets themselves support text only (plain and rich text), but you can play with workflows to create your own actions based on a snippet trigger. When you say you want to "use" images and PDFs, do you want to attach these to emails, open them, etc? It's likely that there's a way to do this with AppleScript and a workflow depending on what you have in mind. If you can elaborate, we might be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  13. @ggiese You could also take a look at using Google's "site:" search parameter and see if you're happy with those results? Might be simpler...
  14. Are you searching using Spotlight or Finder? Finder uses a different, lower level search than Spotlight and Alfred. If Spotlight can find the files, it will be possible to configure Alfred to also find them.
  15. @Gee Could you please share your workflow, as it's difficult to help based on a screenshot? Also, if you use Alfred's Clipboard History feature (Features > Clipboard), does this work as expected? Cheers, Vero
