  1. @Patricio Have you tried setting a different hotkey for Universal Actions, in case it's conflicting with another prior hotkey on your Mac?
  2. @Patricio Could you please also reset the Accessibility permissions? My guess is that in updating Big Sur, macOS has lost resolution of the permissions you've granted Alfred. You'll need to re-grant Alfred the appropriate Accessibility permissions as outlined here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/#accessibility If it's already checked, remove Alfred fully (using the minus button) and re-add Alfred to the Accessibility permissions. Sometimes, macOS loses resolution of permissions, so the above should solve it Cheers, Vero
  3. Hi @Feek Welcome to the forum What you're looking for is Alfred's Fallback Searches feature. You can change them here, and add your custom search instead of the default Google one: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/default-results/fallback-searches/ Cheers, Vero
  4. @Patricio @dfay Could either of you please share your workflow so that I can take a look? I've created what I believe is an identical one to Patricio's, and ran it with logging open, and it works as expected. Does the issue where the action doesn't complete happen every time, frequently or just on a rare occasion? Does it happen in all apps or only a specific one? Is the output content copied to your Alfred Clipboard History but just not pasted to the frontmost app? If you can replicate it, can you please open the workflow's logging (click the bug in the top right of the workflow canvas) and run the action? Let me know if you see any error message. The more details you can provide, the more likely we can work out why you might be seeing this behaviour. Cheers, Vero
  5. @DampSquid Welcome to the forum You can set Alfred to remember your query history, and show it if within 5 minutes, by enabling it in the preferences: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/keep-your-latest-query-handy/ I'm guessing that you don't have this enabled yet, but let me know if I've misunderstood your question / suggestion. Cheers, Vero
  6. @Tom6 Could you please reset Alfred's permissions for contacts? To do this: Quit Alfred launch your macOS Security & Privacy Prefs > Privacy > Contacts, remove Alfred 4 by using the minus button Relaunch Alfred and grant Contacts permissions again Go to Alfred's Features > Contacts > Advanced preferences and ensure "Use Spotlight metadata for searching contacts" is not checked Try searching for contacts once again and let me know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  7. @Atul Kundaria Could you please pop an email to our info@ address with your Diagnostics file? You can get this file by typing "?diagnostics" into Alfred. You can then attach the file to your email. Cheers, Vero
  8. @mlevison I've had a look around, but couldn't find all that much about Kiwi for Gmail, so you'll need to ask them whether they offer AppleScript support. Using attachments in a third-party email client depends entirely on their support. You can see the list of supported apps in Alfred's Features > Contacts > Email, in the bottom subtext. If Kiwi support AppleScript, they should be able to provide a script for email attachments, which can then be used with Alfred Cheers, Vero
  9. @mlevison Beyond Vitor's suggestion of File Filters (which is the best way to create easy to re-use filters), you can also just include "*pdf" in your query. E.g. "[spacebar]tax*pdf" The spacebar is the shortcut for the "open" keyword, broadening your search file types "tax" as I'm looking for a tax document in this example "*pdf" (of your choice of file type) where the star wildcards something before it and is a pdf This is useful for quick one-off searches, but Vitor's suggestion is best for frequent searches, e.g. if you find that you're regularly needing to find PDFs in a fixed set of locations, you'll save a lot of time creating a File Filter workflow Cheers, Vero
  10. @rrchampion First, make sure you're using Alfred 4. Next, "duck" is the default keyword, but take a look at Alfred's Preferences > Features > Web Search, and take a look at whether you've modified the keyword for the Duck Duck Go web search. Cheers, Vero
  11. @stranger1 Take a look at your workflows, and see whether you have an Evernote-related workflow. Right-click and uncheck "Enabled". It may be that you have a workflow with a particularly basic keyword that is triggered by what you're typing into Alfred. You can then tweak keywords or hotkeys before re-enabling it. Cheers, Vero
  12. @dolearning The first steps to follow when results seem unexpected is to rebuild your Mac's metadata. It's usually because the data being provided by macOS is incorrect (even if it appears correct in the current Spotlight cache), and rebuilding ensures that all this information is refreshed by the OS. Even if you believe you've already reindexed, please follow the steps below specifically (as it involves deleting a cache first and ensuring Terminal has suitable permissions). First, please pop open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access and add Terminal Once you've done this, go to Alfred's Advanced preferences, choose "Rebuild macOS Metadata" Ensure that you check "Delete .Spotlight-V100 before reindex" Follow the steps in Terminal, and keep a close eye for any error messages relating to your index. Please let me know if there are any errors. Otherwise, if it proceeds smoothly, you may need to wait up to an hour for the reindex to complete. Once this is done, make your searches again and see if your results are more as expected. If your issue persists, please provide the following information: Your diagnostics file, by typing ?diagnostics into Alfred and attaching the resulting file (please email this to our info@ address) Examples of the File Troubleshooting reports for files you cannot find using Alfred (not just your user directory) Cheers, Vero
  13. @dolearning Welcome to the forum Could you please pop open Alfred's preferences to the Help tab > Troubleshooting > Run Troubleshooting... and drag some of your problem files? Paste the output in your reply so that we can see whether the troubleshooting completes successfully. As Andrew said to the user who posted earlier, please email your Diagnostics file (type "?diagnostics" into Alfred to create the file) to our info@ address (referencing this thread) as well so that I can take a look at your setup. Cheers, Vero
  14. The thread above refers to an older version of Alfred, before there were multiple content types Alfred could save to clipboard for you. In Alfred 4, go to Alfred's Preferences > Features > Clipboard History, you'll see three checkboxes. Uncheck these boxes and, optionally, select the Clipboard Viewer hotkey field and press backspace to clear the hotkey. Cheers, Vero
  15. @halloleo First, ensure you're using the latest version of Alfred (4.5.1 at this time) to ensure you have the most current set of Search Scope paths in Alfred's Features > Default Results. (If you've modified these, use Reset to return to the default set of paths) Once you've done this, type "reload" into Alfred, which will remove any past cached apps held in a location that is no longer relevant in your current macOS version. Finally, if Messages still isn't appearing, try the File Troubleshooter to establish whether it's correctly indexed. Go to Alfred's Preferences > Help > Troubleshooting > File Search Troubleshooting. Drag Messages to see the full log, and paste it in your next reply here if there are any errors. Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  16. @sloth Alfred doesn't move or have any interaction with the folder you choose for your preferences, and just places a copy of your .alfredpreferences file in the location you choose - so he wouldn't have been the cause of this folder disappearance. Do you use Time Machine? If so, you should be able to go back in time and spot the last time the folder was present in your Dropbox. Cheers, Vero
  17. @sloth Could you tell me a bit more about your setup? Is this a new Mac or a longstanding one? If it's a new Mac, you'll need to ensure Dropbox has enough time to download all of your files first. Otherwise, if you're on a longstanding Mac, if you manually navigate to your Dropbox, do you see your Alfred folder? Could you have moved Dropbox to a new location (intentionally or accidentally)? Dropbox generally is pretty good at keeping files locally, but also offers Smart Sync, which only keeps the files online to save space on your Mac. If that's enabled, could it be that the Alfred folder has been set to only be stored in the cloud? Cheers, Vero
  18. @amir If you've only just activated the Clipboard History feature, you'll need to ensure you've granted Alfred accessibility. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/#integration Once Alfred has accessibility, he'll be able to paste items for you. Cheers, Vero
  19. @sepulchra If you still need help, pop an email to our info@ address from your registered email address.
  20. @sepulchra As a long time user of Alfred, I'm sure you already know that when Alfred is unable to return files, it's usually because the data being provided by macOS is incorrect (even if it appears correct in the current Spotlight cache), and rebuilding ensures that all this information is refreshed by the OS. Even if you believe you've already reindexed, please follow the steps below specifically (as it involves deleting a cache first and ensuring Terminal has suitable permissions). First, please pop open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access and add Terminal Once you've done this, go to Alfred's Advanced preferences, choose "Rebuild macOS Metadata" Ensure that you check "Delete .Spotlight-V100 before reindex" Follow the steps in Terminal, and keep a close eye for any error messages relating to your index. Please let me know if there are any errors. Otherwise, if it proceeds smoothly, you may need to wait up to an hour for the reindex to complete. Once this is done, make your searches again and see if your results are more as expected. If your issue persists, please provide the following information: Your diagnostics file, by typing ?diagnostics into Alfred (which you can email to us) Examples of the File Troubleshooting reports for the files you cannot find using Alfred Details of exactly what you're typing into Alfred and what results you are expecting to see Cheers, Vero
  21. @musecow Welcome to the forum. Looks like you're showing Spotlight, rather than Alfred, so first, go to Alfred's General preferences and check the hotkey combo you're using. Cheers, Vero
  22. @Xander Welcome to the forum. Could you please provide more details as you haven't given any details about your particular case: - When you drag the file you're referring to into Alfred's Troubleshooting tool, what's the output? (Please paste the full output in your reply) - Could you let me know what file type it is and exactly what you're typing into Alfred to find it? - Can Alfred find this file on your Mac when typing "open" followed by your search term? The more information you provide about your individual case, the more likely we'll be able to help. Cheers, Vero
  23. Universal Action Triggers, aka adding your own custom Actions
  24. @EricCartman Could you provide some more information so that we can help you? What was the output of the troubleshooter? You can copy/paste it here Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? Was the file found when you moved it to the Desktop? What exactly are you typing into Alfred to find the file? The more information you provide, the more likely we'll be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  25. @spamsgood Welcome to the forum I'm guessing that you're using the macOS Monterey beta? Apple have made changes to PHP, which this particular script filter workflow requires. As Monterey is in such early beta, we don't recommend using it on your main daily Mac, as it's far from complete. Once Monterey has settled, we'll find solutions to any remaining issues, such as PHP missing. Cheers, Vero
