  1. @twizzard Have you looked at the File Troubleshooting guide? It will walk you step by step through using Alfred's built-in troubleshooter and how to resolve any indexing issues on your Mac. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ If you still have any issues, please provide more details, e.g. the output of the File Troubleshooter for a few files you're looking for, exactly what you're typing into Alfred, etc. and we'll be happy to help you further Cheers, Vero
  2. @Christian Bailey The original script created by Daniel is still available here: https://github.com/danieldiekmeier/textexpander-to-alfred3 As he states on that page, TextExpander has likely changed since he created this script in 2016, so depending on which version of TE you're using, this may need tweaking before it works again. Alfred should have no problem importing the snippets as this aspect of Alfred's Snippets feature will accept the same input as it did in Alfred 3 for compatibility reasons. Cheers, Vero
  3. We most definitely don't ban anyone for giving love to workflows that deserve it. Mmmm tacos...
  4. @zdlo Where are you ticking and unticking tracks nowadays? As far as I can see in Music.app, there's no longer a way to tick/untick tracks; This was a legacy feature from the days where you'd choose which tracks to sync to your iOS device primarily. It also allowed us to help you avoid including things like voice memos or ringtones in your random tracks, but it seems to have disappeared when iTunes did. If you can provide more details and a few screenshots, I'll be happy to help further Cheers, Vero
  5. @giovanni That's essentially built-in now, if I've understood correctly what you're looking for. Just type the question mark followed by any feature name, workflow name or keyword, even the word "hotkeys" or "keywords" to see relevant results from your features and workflows. More details about the feature can be found here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/search-alfred-question-mark-trick/ Cheers, Vero
  6. @davewripley The fact that you're seeing the issue in Houdahspot as well indicates that it's an issue with your Mac's metadata, not with Alfred, so there are only so many suggestions I can make. You'll need to experiment and troubleshoot on your own Mac to narrow down whether there are files with non-standard characters that are causing metadata issues, work out whether it's specific files and/or folders. For example, what happens if you create a new folder on your Desktop and copy one or two folders from your PDF folder? Or if you create a file on your desktop and move it TO your
  7. @listentoyoureyes If you say that Alfred is showing in the Activity Monitor as running, try opening Alfred's preferences from the bowler hat in the menu bar or, if you've removed that, by using your Alfred hotkey combo, then Cmd + comma. Once the preferences are open, go to Appearance > Options > and ensure that Alfred is set to show on Default screen, and that the box to save the position when dragging Alfred main window is unchecked. You haven't specified what setup you use, but my guess is that Big Sur is mis-reporting the dimensions of your screen so Alfred's
  8. @AlexA I would suggest taking a look at the Dynamic File Search workflow that's built into Alfred. You'll find it under Workflows > [+] > Examples > Dynamic File Search. First, you choose a folder within which you'd like to search. Hit enter, then search for content. You could modify this to some extent to suit your needs, in terms of getting the second File Filter to search inside files etc. By being two steps, it resolves the issue deanishe mentions, in that multiple folders will match what you type in that first stage. With this workflow, I was
  9. @Jono Under Appearance > Options, you can decide when the subtext should appear. If you don't want the subtext, you can remove it (though I'm not sure I'd recommend it as, when searching for folders or files, it gives valuable context)
  10. @Scooterman Alfred's Clipboard History isn't really intended for scrolling. One can assume that if you're going back to the clipboard, you have at least a vague idea of what you're looking for. Type a few characters from the query you're looking for, which will filter down the list significantly to more relevant items only. Function + up/down arrows can also be used to page up / down, but is still less efficient than my first suggestion above. Cheers, Vero
  11. @albertkinng Always alfredapp.com You can simply reply to your Powerpack license or receipt email if it's easier, it'll come to Andrew and I. Cheers, Vero
  12. @rgilkes Which version of Alfred are you using? Please ensure you're using Alfred 4 from https://www.alfredapp.com and that you're up to date (currently version 4.3.2). If your issue persists, please take a look at the indexing troubleshooting guide here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  13. I've had a look and you're correct that the Chrome address bar, Chrome manipulates the snippet and removes the space at the end. Unfortunately, this is entirely in Chrome's hands and not something we have control over. It works in TextEdit and in normal, non-manipulating apps, so this is just something you'll have to keep in mind in apps that try to be overly "smart" by overruling what you're typing or pasting in. Cheers, Vero
  14. @adonis "Play all tracks by" follows the same behaviour as the "random album" feature, where it stays on screen to allow you to continue browsing your music collection, skip to the next song, etc. As this has been the behaviour of the Mini Player since the beginning of time, we're hesitant to make any changes to a behaviour that other users will have become used to for many years. Keep in mind that you can either use your Alfred main hotkey to start a different Alfred query, or the Escape key to just close the Mini Player and get on with your work once you've got your g
  15. @rocklobster Alfred uses the Music API, and doesn't search or keep an index of the music in your Music library. As such, the tracks you're seeing will be returned by iTunes/Music. I've checked with Andrew as well, and we've never encountered/heard of that issue. Might be worth logging out and back in to your iTunes account in the Music app, and checking that a friend or family member hasn't cheekily added new music to your collection Cheers, Vero
  16. As per my previous message, we'll get the ball rolling this coming week
  17. @SamuelFolledo This is the Previous Path default hotkey combo. Go to Features > File Search > Navigation and remove the Previous Path combo by pressing the backspace key when the field is selected, or change the hotkey to something more convenient for you Cheers, Vero
  18. @JackeyOL Unfortunately, Apple have not made this possible since Catalina.
  19. Hi all, sorry for the slow reply over here! Could you each please drop me an email to info@ including the following info? Your Powerpack email address Forum username Device(s) you'll be using for testing, including which iOS version it's on Most importantly, your iCloud/iTunes email address to which we'll send you the TestFlight invite We're hoping to get the ball rolling at the start of next week Thanks, Vero
  20. @ioemilio Which feature are you referring to? To use the broader search, prefix your search term with a space (shortcut to the "open" keyword). Might be worth taking a look at our intro guide to searching using Alfred for all the details on default search, finding files and documents, etc: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/beginners-guide-to-alfred-searching-your-mac-and-the-web/
  21. @selrond Please take a look at the File Troubleshooting, and use the built-in troubleshooter to establish whether the metadata for your files passes the test: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Once you've done this, please follow the 7 troubleshooting steps on that page carefully, including step 5 where you should ensure that you follow the bullet points to rebuild your index properly. If your issue persists, please reply with as much information as possible so that we can help you further. Cheers, Vero
  22. Alfred doesn't forget randomly, it's down to the macOS metadata index either providing or not providing file results. Do you use any third-party tools that may be manipulating the index, such as Onyx or cleaner apps that may be removing caches or affecting the index?
  23. @davewripley This behaviour indicates that the macOS metadata is missing these folders or incorrectly indexing them. Spotlight may be showing results for now but it'll be using an internal cache, which will eventually expire and likely begin to show the same gaps you're seeing in Alfred and any other third-party apps that use the same underlying index. I appreciate you say you've reindexed already, but 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 >
  24. @BetaBeats Welcome to the forum Can I make a suggestion that falls at the completely simplistic end of the scale? I've created a proof of concept workflow just for fun, which takes the selection in macOS. It assumes that the copied text contains the time zone, such as your "12pm PST" example in your first reply. I can then choose from a list filter which time zone I want the output in, then press return. All it does is launch a phrase in Google Search using your first input (your copied timestamp) and the time zone you requested, and asks Google to calculate it.
  25. @atsaloli Could you please keep threads on topic? This thread was originally about the lock command, not about custom searches. There's also no need to tag me specifically as there are many very knowledgeable forum members who can help with simple questions. You can sync or back up your entire preferences: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/advanced/sync/ Alternatively, you can set up Time Machine as a backup, or manually copy the Alfred.alfredpreferences file from ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/ to a location of your choice to back it up.
