  1. If your post relates to the workflow linked by @cands a few posts above, could you please post your issues with it in the correct workflow thread, so that it doesn't confuse matters with the workflow this particular thread is about? Please confirm that's the one you're referring to and I'll move this post too.
  2. @SJ2K @Alfred User As explained above by @deanishe, when this occurs, it's down to another app, plugin, or macOS feature locking secure input - and potentially not correctly releasing it when it's done. A few people make reference to Chrome earlier in this thread, and certainly some Chrome plugins (off the top of my head, I know LastPass was an issue at the time) don't correctly release secure input when it's done. Alfred doesn't interfere with the macOS secure input feature and, needless to say, cannot "cancel" or remove another app's secure input, as this would defeat
  3. @csonni Could you clarify where your file is stored, whether it's a brand new file, which version of macOS you're using, etc? You can also run Alfred's file troubleshooting tool by going to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting > File Troubleshooting, and drag your file to it. It'll provide you with more information about it. Cheers, Vero
  4. @MrP Glad you got to the bottom of it I'll move this to Discussion & Help as it's not a bug and your solution may help other users in the future. Cheers, Vero
  5. @TomasA Welcome to the forum Drive-by linking - this is the app in question: https://reinventedsoftware.com/keepit/ There's a paragraph on that page stating that it provides AppleScript support, so if anyone else is using Keep It, they should be able to help In the meantime, if you list out the most likely actions you'd be looking for in the workflow, it'll give a headstart to any workflow creator. Cheers, Vero
  6. @MrP If you use other workflows with notifications enabled, do you see them? Try this tiny workflow, which uses the keyword "say" followed by whatever text you like. When you press Enter, you should see the output in Notification Centre. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4jjje8jkssd2g7/Testing notifications.alfredworkflow?dl=1 Do you see a notification for this? Cheers, Vero
  7. @ke11 Your thread was merged with the existing one about Brave bookmarks support. Have a look at the workflows suggested above. As Brave doesn't currently make the bookmarks data readily available for third-parties to use, there's no built-in integration planned for that browser. Cheers, Vero
  8. @MrP In macOS's Notification Centre preferences, have you allowed Alfred 4 to show notifications? This also needs to be set to banners or alerts so that they actually show Cheers, Vero
  9. @stinkykon Cmd + Option + C is used for the Clipboard History feature and was the same in Alfred 3 You can change or disable it here (but I can't imagine how anyone can function without clipboard history!) https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/ Cheers, Vero
  10. @Pilacik This is done using the Fallback Searches feature, which is a Powerpack feature https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/default-results/fallback-searches/ Cheers, Vero
  11. @chris Could you share your theme and let us know which version of macOS and Alfred you're using? Cheers, Vero
  12. @nikivi I'm moving this to the Big Sur Beta section, which is where this originally should have been posted. To my knowledge, we haven't seen any issues with contacts in Big Sur, but by putting it in the appropriate forum section, other users will be able to confirm either way. In the meantime, yes, it does look like your Spotlight is having some issues...
  13. They released Evernote 10, and as of current enquiries with some of their staff, doesn't support AppleScript. They've said they're still considering it, but at this point, the workflow requires Evernote 7 (which is still available in the legacy section of their site) The more people make noise about wanting support, the more likely they'll add it. However, the workflow may need to evolve to use their API instead, if they choose not to add AppleScript support.
  14. @rfischmann Given that appending with custom characters is already possible using a workflow, there's no need to keep bumping the thread You can do it by following the instructions @vitor provided earlier in this thread: Cheers, Vero
  15. @nikivi I'm sure you've been using Alfred for long enough to appreciate that Alfred didn't just turn around one morning and decide he didn't feel like returning your contact. This will be down to the data being provided by macOS... Some useful information you could provide when reporting this: - Which version of macOS are you using? - Are your contacts set to use the default method, or did you check the "Use Spotlight metadata for searching contacts" under Features > Contacts > Advanced? - Is Spotlight finding your contact? - If you make a sma
  16. @stevesmith8675309 Here are just a few of the features included in the free version of Alfred: Finding apps, folders & files on your Mac Searching the web using dozens of built-in searches Custom searches which you can create for your favourite sites Calculator Dictionary (Spell & Define keywords) System commands to sleep your Mac, lock it, activate the screensaver, empty trash, etc Quicklook to preview files Large type to show text Quick search for your contacts Bookmarks search for Safari and Chrome I'm sure I'm m
  17. @Gordon Firemark Alfred will ask for Automation permissions as and when necessary and there's no need to manually add anything there. This also won't have any impact on whether or not apps are found on your Mac. In macOS Catalina, Apple moved the apps to a new location. First, make sure you're using Alfred 4.2, then go to Features > Default Results, and make sure that "macOS Applications folder" is ticked next to the Search Scope section. If your issue persists, go to Alfred's Help tab in the preferences, click "Troubleshooting" and run the File Search Troubleshootin
  18. 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
  19. @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.
  20. You can forward it to our info@ address Thanks! Cheers, Vero
  21. 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
  22. @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
  23. 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
  24. @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
  25. @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
