  1. @mrgordon Take a look at Alfred's Preferences > Features > File Search > Navigation. Is this the hotkey combo you're looking for? You can change it, or simply remove it by selecting the field and pressing backspace. Cheers, Vero
  2. @superMe Could you please open Console.app and locate the crash log? Please email it to our info@ address or copy the contents here so that we can take a look at what's happening, as this sounds highly unusual.
  3. Thanks for the nudge @Carlos-Sz @Oscar Could you clarify what you're trying to use the Metadata Tool for? If you're unable to find some files on your Mac, update to Alfred 4.1, open Alfred's preferences to the Help tab > Troubleshooting > Run Troubleshooting... You can then drag any files you're unable to find to see what Alfred sees, and whether there are any issues with the metadata. Cheers, Vero
  4. @dp1207 Could you please remove and re-add Alfred from this system preference? Did you transfer your data from an old Mac to your new Mac or restore from a Time Machine? If so, there's likely been some corruption in macOS establishing whether Alfred has the necessary permissions. Removing and resetting this permission should take care of it Let us know how you get on.
  5. @aph Welcome to the forum With the Powerpack, you could create a workflow to do much of what you want (e.g. show Alfred in "Wikipedia mode" without prefixing with a keyword), etc... If you already have a Powerpack license, please add it to your forum profile. Only admins can see this, and it allows us to confirm your Powerpack status. If you don't yet have a license, you can grab one here: https://www.alfredapp.com/shop/ Cheers, Vero
  6. @srb1961 You're using a Big Sur beta, which in itself is a huge unknown factor. However, if the mouse pointer is in Alfred's view and is moving imperceptibly, this would cause Alfred to highlight that row, regardless of OS version. We'll be testing every feature on Big Sur thoroughly once it's a few beta builds in. From experience, the first few beta builds of a new macOS release evolve quickly (sometimes resolving bugs, sometimes introducing others), with significant changes in every update. Soon, we'll be doing our full testing, but at this time, it's essentially still a developm
  7. @briansurg I'm trying to understand your objective, rather than the process you think is best. Is your aim to open a folder, then select a file, opening it in its default app or a non-default app? All of this is possible with the Powerpack, and doesn't necessitate opening the macOS file menu. There are many ways to reach the goal you have in mind, but it's unproductive for us to help you create a workflow at this stage, as I understand you're still not a Powerpack user. Once you've clarified the goal (rather than the process) you want to achieve, and you're equipped wit
  8. @sawhney Please keep all posts relating to Big Sur issues to the appropriate Bugs forum. I've moved your thread to it. Could you please give more details on exactly which beta of Big Sur you're using? Links to the exact workflows you're trying to import? This is a very early macOS beta, so issues are bound to crop up, so the more detailed your report can be, the more useful it will be. Cheers, Vero
  9. @briansurg When you say "the file menu", do you mean Alfred's File Navigation? Or the macOS menu? It's possible, with the Powerpack, to create workflows to perform different actions depending on which app is currently in focus. If you clarify exactly what you want to achieve out of the process, we'll be able to confirm what's possible. With regards to the post being hidden - I'm the one who hid it temporarily, while trying to manage the forum from my phone on a Saturday afternoon. I'd misread the post at a glance and read it as though you were declining to provide a Powerpack licen
  10. @franco-allemande Apologies for missing your post last week! Yes, you'll be able to use your license on your new Mac. With the Single User license, you can activate on two Macs concurrently, provided they're for your own use and not shared workstations. With the Mega Supporter license, you can activate on up to four Macs, again, provided they're for your own use only. If you're getting rid of your old Mac, you can deactivate your license by popping up Alfred's preferences to the Powerpack tab, viewing your license and choosing Deactivate. Cheers, Vero
  11. @krzemian Welcome to the forum! Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile before asking questions relating to Powerpack-only features? Cheers, Vero
  12. @2Pants Alfred will request Automation permissions when he needs it. What isn't working as expected? Could you also let us know which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? Cheers, Vero
  13. Where is your mouse when you're doing this? Could it be that your mouse is hovered over that result and Big Sur is treating it as selection? Please say exactly which Big Sur build and Alfred version you're using to make this useful. [Moving this thread to the Bugs section for Big Sur, as this is a beta.]
  14. @pablonm Could you please launch Alfred's preferences to the General tab and follow these steps? - Click Request Permissions - Click Accessibility - Remove Alfred from the Accessibility preferences if he's already in there - Quit Alfred - Re-add Alfred to Accessibility preferences - Try your snippets again in a native app like TextEdit All should be back to normal As macOS Catalina is still buggy, it can forget about permissions, so resetting like this re-establishes that Alfred should have the necessary permissions to paste clipboard and snippet items for y
  15. @dp_ucsd Could you please update to Alfred 4.1, go to Help > Troubleshooting > Run Troubleshooting, and drag in a few files from your mounted drive? Please paste the output here so that we can take a look at what might be missing for Alfred to search your mounted drive. Cheers, Vero
  16. @WillGreen98 When you say "nothing" is showing up, are some apps showing and others not? Can Spotlight find them? If I've understood correctly, are you saying you did a clean install of macOS Catalina? Or just Alfred? The latter won't help find apps if the underlying macOS index is missing the apps. You'll need to make sure you give macOS enough time to do its first indexing. If the issue persists, could you please update to the Alfred 4.1 pre-release by going to the Update tab, choosing "pre-releases" from the dropdown at the bottom, then updating. Once you've update
  17. @gpkashyap First, please make sure you're using Alfred 4.0.9 from https://www.alfredapp.com as Apple have moved default apps to a new location in macOS Catalina. It looks like you may be using the older App Store version of Alfred, which isn't aware of these changes. Next, if the issue persists, take a look at the indexing troubleshooting guide below: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  18. @dd426 @deanishe Is this in Big Sur or on the current OS? It may simply mean that the file is stored somewhere else, in a different format or requires different permissions so we'll need to take a look before assuming it's dead If it's Big Sur specific, it's worth reporting in the relevant forum section so that we can take a look into it. Please give as much detail as possible as to which Big Sur beta you're on, as I suspect these will move quite fast at the beginning, and things may get naturally fixed as the beta matures. Cheers, Vero
  19. @scottisloud Glad it's working Any chance you could elaborate on what issue you saw / what fixed it? It may help other users who are playing with Big Sur for the first time.
  20. A few moments ago, we popped Alfred 4.1 on the pre-release channel. It's a big release with lots of tasty stuff for you to sink your teeth into. New workflow objects for integrating with files and the File Buffer Shared Hotkeys for workflows Embedded Snippets Contact Actions Built-in File Search Troubleshooting from the Help preferences And loads more! Take a look at the Update tab for a complete change log, as there's a lot in this release, which is free to all Alfred 4 Powerpack license holders. We'd love to get your help in
  21. @mgs1000 Here's where you can set your environment variables for the workflow: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/variables/#environment
  22. @rwz Did you give your Mac sufficient time to complete the reindex? It may be that you're finally seeing the results of macOS completing the reindexing. Cheers, Vero
  23. @chris Yup, looks like when I re-wrote the new Dynamic Placeholders page (now found here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/placeholders/) I missed out the cursor. I've added it now. It's a fairly self-explanatory one using {cursor}, and it's included in the placeholders list in-app (the square brackets bottom left of the Snippets content window includes examples of the various dynamic placeholders) but it's back in the docs now for completeness. Cheers, Vero
  24. @Tburka Unfortunately, Apple no longer allows third-party apps to access Mail data since Catalina. More details here: Cheers, Vero
  25. @vamp07 As @deanishe says, your clipboard can contain information that isn't suitable for syncing (e.g. work data that isn't intended for you to take home, or to sync via Dropbox) Where you want to save specific bits of content to be synced, you can press Cmd + S in the Clipboard Viewer. This will pop up the Snippets preferences so that you can save the clip as a snippet. You can create a collection that's used for any of this data you want to save but don't need as an expansion snippet - just don't set a keyword and don't check the "Auto-expansion" box for that item.
