  1. When you see this, could you open Activity Monitor and do a sample process? If you share the output, we might be able to see what’s happening on your Mac.
  2. @ppolang If you open Alfred's Workflows preferences and drag the workflow to the sidebar, does it show you the import details instead of the error message? Are you using a third-party unzipper of some sort that may be manipulating the downloaded file? This is the most likely root of your issue. Cheers, Vero
  3. By design, we don't manipulate your input; What you might think is convenient (removing trailing spaces) will likely break someone else's work flow (or their workflows too!) Spotlight is limited to search and Safari is limited to URLs, so they're very much single-purpose fields, while Alfred's input box can be used for much more.
  4. @brad parks Are you sure it isn't just that the first line of the text you're pasting is showing "above" your content and the trailing new line is causing you to only see the blank row? For example, I've copied from your post the following: "Thanks, [newline]" So in Alfred, I see the following when pasting: The text and the new line is there, but the word "Thanks," is not visible as I've pasted more than one line. Spotlight just seems to remove the new line. Can you describe what you're trying to achieve specifically? Cheers, Vero
  5. @geiras In this user's case, they wanted to use a URL very similar to the original web search, so performing a web search allowed them to find out the basic URL structure. If you want to easily duplicate searches, your best bet is to create a workflow containing all your Jira-related searches, as you'll then be able to either use a single object or duplicate objects as needed. Let us know if you need any help Cheers, Vero
  6. @Chris Messina Thanks for the reminder! Been meaning to update this a bajillion times, but when I come to the forum, I just crack on with answering questions and forget every time. I've just updated it to be light grey instead so should be easier to read
  7. Thanks to you both for confirming that's all it was - looks like macOS is losing resolution of permissions, so I've updated the title so that this thread can be useful to anyone who finds it in the future Cheers, Vero
  8. @tvil @Jezper Could you please both open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility? Unlock the padlock, then remove Alfred completely (using the minus symbol, not just by unchecking the box) then re-add Alfred 4 to have Accessibility permissions. This will re-set Alfred's permissions and ensure that macOS remembers that Alfred is allowed to perform actions such as auto-expansion. Could you both let me know how you get on? Cheers, Vero
  9. You'll need to set keywords for the Snippet Triggers as these are stripped from the workflow to avoid clashing with your own. For example, I've set them to these... Just keep in mind the shared prefix in your Snippet Triggers setup, so I've only set them to "tw" and so on, and the \\ prefix is set globally for all my snippet triggers. You've no doubt figured that in @dfay's example, you can set the name and address in the environment variables under the [x] in the top right of the workflow canvas You can read more about the snippet triggers object, or see the few scenarios with dynamic content within the snippets as examples too. Nested snippets and snippets trigger based workflows generally are really good fun and ever so useful.
  10. @Idwal Adding snippets from workflows to the Snippets Viewer list is indeed on the cards. Feel free to add your interest in this feature request, as this helps us keep track of features that are of interest to the community Cheers, Vero
  11. @gingerbeardman Have you set any customisations in Alfred's Features > Terminal preferences? Could you provide a screenshot of those preferences? If you've set Application > Custom in the Terminal preferences, it's likely why you're seeing this. If you use the standard Terminal option, you should see the normal behaviour of a new window popping up and being used. Cheers, Vero
  12. @iNyar When searching for files elsewhere on your Mac, are you seeing everything you need in Alfred? I would suggest, to help work out whether the files in Dropbox can be found, creating a File Filter workflow to search your "Papers" folder specifically: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/file-filter/ Set the search scope to that folder (and optionally, which file type(s) you want to see returned in the search) then use this and see what's returned. Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  13. Could you please open the Accessibility preferences, remove Alfred using the minus symbol, then re-add Alfred to the Accessibility list? Based on what you're describing, it seems that macOS has forgotten the permissions, so re-setting them should resolve that. Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  14. @rwmleach What you've experienced is precisely why we advise against using iCloud for syncing Alfred's preferences. iCloud has continued to be unreliable over the past few years, sometimes syncing properly, other times syncing partially or not at all. If you choose to use iCloud, first ensure that Optimised Storage is disabled, and make sure your data is backed up via Time Machine or other regular backup so that you have preferences to go back to if iCloud fails. Cheers, Vero
  15. @Missionary If your browser is the one that triggers the warning, take a look at your browser plugins (which are the most common source of issues, as browser plugins don't always correctly release secure input when they should). You can then disable these plugins one by one, which should allow you to narrow down which one is the problem one. Off the top of my head, some users have reported in the past that LastPass and Grammarly have caused this issue. Restart Safari once you've disabled the plugins and see whether Alfred still shows the locked secure entry error message in the Snippets preferences. Re-enable your browser plugins one by one and see which one is the source of your issues. If you can, do share your findings as you might help other users in the future Cheers, Vero
  16. @Jimtowner In that case, you can use Alfred's built-in Troubleshooting tool to establish what's happening on your Mac. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Drag in a few apps, and see what the output is. You can then follow the instructions further down the page to help you rebuild your index, and so on. Cheers, Vero
  17. @Michal Bryxí If you use Alfred's built-in Troubleshooting tool and drag in some of your Google Drive files in, what does the output show? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ If the files aren't passing troubleshooting, they're not being indexed by Spotlight, which will be the first step. Google Drive don't officially support macOS indexing, so your mileage may vary with this, depending on your specific Google Drive settings and whether the files are stored locally on your Mac. Cheers, Vero
  18. @Jimtowner Which version of Alfred are you using? (Look at the update tab in the preferences for this information) Cheers, Vero
  19. @luckman212 We intentionally don't include line count, because everyone's definition is different; Does it depend on page width? Does it only include new lines? It's too ambiguous, while word and character count are much more useful metrics to know how large the text snippet you're copying is. Cheers, Vero
  20. @aFan Are you referring to copying from the Snippets/Clipboard History Viewer? If so, you can Cmd + C to copy the content to your clipboard, ready to paste when you choose your destination Cheers, Vero
  21. Try slowing down key events as outlined here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/snippets/#partial This will give the browser more time to finish removing characters before pasting in your snippet. Cheers, Vero
  22. @Sam McMillan Could you open your macOS System Preferences > Users & Groups > unlock to make changes then look at your Login Items. Remove Alfred from the list, then relaunch and re-check the launch at login box. I haven't heard of this issue from anyone else, so let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  23. You can choose between: Single User license, which is for use on up to two Macs, provided they're for your own use and not shared workstations. This license is valid for Alfred 4, and you'll be presented with a discounted upgrade option when a future version of Alfred is announced. Mega Supporter, which is for use on up to four Macs, again for your own use only and not shared workstations. This license gives you free updates to all future versions of Alfred for Mac. It's a bonkers good deal, as @deanishe says, as you purchase once and then feel smug with every future update Given that we offer the core version of Alfred for free, we don't offer discounts on the license. You can get started right away by grabbing a license here: https://www.alfredapp.com/shop/ If you're part of a company where you're thinking of purchasing the Powerpack for 5+ team members, we do offer a corporate licensing scheme, which makes the distribution of licenses to teams easier. Cheers, Vero
  24. @chuckbutler ~/Library/Mobile Documents/ is the path where your iCloud documents are stored. You can remove it from Alfred's search scope, but keep this in mind in the future if you decide you want to search iCloud again and results aren't showing in Alfred. You can then reset the search scope with the "Reset" button, which will bring back all default paths. Cheers, Vero
  25. @kyanny Could you please type "?diagnostics" into Alfred and email the file to our info@ email address so that I can take a look at your particular setup? Cheers, Vero
