  1. It looks like Houdah is using a plugin within Mail to provide search results. Apple doesn't actually provide a public API for this, and they don't officially support Mail plugins. Using unsupported or private APIs means that any changes made by Apple can kill the feature at any time; Hacks often quickly prove themselves to be unreliable as Apple make regular changes to macOS. I don't want to detract from Houdah's choice to add it, but there are no features in Alfred relying on hacks, which is why you can expect Alfred to be stable and predictable. As such, this isn't so
  2. @yashodhankhare Thanks for sharing this - it was interesting to look into how they're doing it. They've chosen to create a Mail plugin, which uses a private plugin API. This means that it's subject to disappearing at any time, and isn't supported or documented by Apple. Unfortunately, Apple still doesn't offer a supported, reliable way to search Mail at this time.
  3. You can forward it to our info@ address Thanks! Cheers, Vero
  4. Would you have any links to their announcement? I've had a look at their tweets and blog and could only find the ones stating that they can no longer search in Catalina, dating from around a year ago. If there's a way to do it without bodging and hacks, I'll be overjoyed to look into it! Cheers, Vero
  5. @LeSedna Welcome to the forum. Make sure you're using Alfred 4 from https://www.alfredapp.com first and foremost If you're still having an issue finding apps, ensure you're using Alfred 4.1.1+, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. This will help you establish what might be happening on your Mac. Cheers, Vero
  6. You can download Alfred 4 from alfredapp.com You can then upgrade to the Powerpack features if you wish. You can take a look at the list of features here: https://www.alfredapp.com/powerpack/ Cheers, Vero
  7. @2048 Alfred 4 supports macOS 10.11+, and I can see you're on macOS 10.9. If you can't upgrade, or would prefer not to, you can use Alfred 3 instead. Cheers, Vero
  8. @optimus1509 Rather than just bump the thread every few days, share what you have so far for the script filter, as this will be a better starting point for someone to point you in the right direction. As there may not be many CCC users on the forum, share as much information as you can. For example, what's the output of the command "ccc -p" in Terminal, etc... The more information you provide, and the more legwork you do towards getting the CCC part of your workflow working, the easier it'll be for others to help you out Cheers, Vero
  9. @EvenStevens Welcome to the forum For us to be able to help you, you'll need to provide more details: - Which version of macOS are you using? - Which version of Alfred? - Is this a new issue on an existing version of macOS or an issue that started when you upgraded to a new OS? In short, start by ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1 (at the time of writing this) as my guess is you're using an older version of Alfred on macOS Catalina. Apple have moved the location of built-in apps in Catalina, which older versions of Alfred won't be aware of. C
  10. @jopemachine The response I got from Evernote is that it's one of the features they're still considering. While I'm not holding much hope, the more people make their interest known to Evernote (rather than just here in our forum), the more likely they'll give it some sort of priority. If AppleScript no longer works, it may be possible for a new Evernote workflow to be created using the API instead of AppleScript... The Evernote 7 legacy version can still be downloaded here in the meantime: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314 Cheers
  11. @JonH707 Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. This will help you establish why you're not finding certain files. Cheers, Vero
  12. The immediate solution is to create a few keyword objects to connect into your workflow. Duplicate your main keyword object then change the keyword, and connect it to the same workflow Cheers, Vero
  13. @Michal Bryxí Are Google Spreadsheets real files or do they just take you to the Google Sheets in your browser? If you can choose a real file (such as the example of a text file as @Pearcen used) and you drag it to your Desktop, wait a moment, then drag that to the File Troubleshooting tool, what metadata do you see? And what happens if you try to do the same with your .gsheet file? I think in your case, it could be a combo of 1. GDFS not allowing Spotlight to index files, and 2. .gsheet potentially not being a file at all. A little more investigating as suggested abov
  14. @Pearcen Since the post above, we've added a File Search Troubleshooting tool to Alfred. Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. I would recommend trying moving a file off GDFS and to your Desktop for a moment to establish whether it's found. If it is found when it's anywhere but on GDFS,
  15. Indeed, the fact that they specifically single out AppleScript as one of the features they're conscious users will be looking for gives me at least some hope. I've contacted Evernote (through standard channels, we don't have any special contacts there), so for those who love this workflow and would like to continue using it with future iterations of Evernote, make yourself heard too
  16. @Gregory Jones We found out a few hours ago that Evernote is changing, and I'll be attempting to get in touch with them to find out more, so please hold your horses. Cheers, Vero
  17. @finn-matti @Gregory Jones @ifihlshfhsfgje I'm truly sorry to hear that they've switched to Electron for future development. I'm not sure how receptive they are to feedback and feature suggestions, but if there's no support for working with external input at this stage (via AppleScript or otherwise), I would encourage you to make your voices heard either in their forums or by email. Thanks for bringing this up, and fingers crossed they listen to their community.
  18. @Gregory Jones I use this workflow pretty much daily, and I've checked for updates and it still works on the latest version of Evernote (7.14) on Catalina. Could you please ensure that you're using Evernote from Evernote.com (not the Mac App Store version) and that you're using the Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4, from the very top of the first post in this thread? If you're still having issues, please pop up the debugger and give more details as to what error messages you're seeing? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/debugger/ Let m
  19. @JolinM You could just do "If query is equal to [blank], take the first path, else (when there is a query) do the "else" action". Sounds like it should do what you want? Or I may have misunderstood your question, in which case, please provide more details Cheers, Vero
  20. @nikivi Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you are expecting to see in your File Filter. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if their file type matches what you've included in your File Filter. Cheers, Vero
  21. @Paul Harrison There are significantly more efficient ways to search for files than turning on that file type. Could you provide the File Troubleshooting output so that we can help you further?
  22. @Paul Harrison Are the files appearing in Spotlight's results? If you open System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud, is Optimised Storage on or off? In order for iCloud to store the actual files on your Mac (rather than storing them in the cloud and requesting them only when needed), Optimised Storage should be off. Cheers, Vero
  23. @P. Colin Manikoth As deanishe explains, the second snippet could never be typed as the first one would expand. If what you want is to type the full snippet keyword and for Alfred to only expand when you type a space afterwards, you can either add the space to your keyword itself (e.g. ":ux " noting the space after the x) or add it as a suffix for the entire collection. In that case, your second snippet would become possible. Cheers, Vero
  24. @Mal Apropos The Option + Command + C hotkey is the default Clipboard History viewer hotkey. You can go to Alfred's preferences > Features > Clipboard and change the Viewer hotkey to something that suits you better Snippets are a brilliant way to avoid repeating typing the same things, whether it's a whole paragraph of text, an email signature or a URL you frequently need. You'll find the full page on Snippets, including some examples, on this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/ As for the Templates, these are in
  25. @M4L @deanishe After some investigating a few days ago, Andrew was able to work out what's happening. It seems to be specifically related to the column view in Finder. If you change the default Finder view to items or list, then it works as expected. The workaround is to change the Finder view, or to use "Open File" instead of "Reveal in Finder", as this will open the folder in Finder, but also select it. This is clearly a bug in Catalina, and we tried various workarounds to this issue using Apple's APIs to no avail. You get the same behaviour if you cmd+re
