  1. PLEASE NOTE: The discussion in this thread is only relevant to macOS versions up to Mojave and earlier. In macOS Catalina, Apple have tightened restrictions further, making it impossible for third parties to access mail content, so the workflow cannot be used in Catalina. @borzov Due to Apple's restrictions, as mentioned above, this workflow won't work on 10.15. Cheers, Vero
  2. @Wes Plate You'll find that hotkey combo set in File Search > Navigation. You can either remove it by clicking into the field and pressing backspace, or you can set an alternative key combo. Cheers, Vero PS - Do your Alfred updates
  3. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/sharing-workflows/ Cheers, Vero
  4. @Rost Modech As per @deanishe's reply earlier, this workflow only works on macOS versions earlier than Catalina. Unfortunately, Apple have decided to block third-party apps from accessing certain types of data, including Mail data, in macOS 10.15 Catalina. As such, you won't be able to use the workflow in Catalina. I'll update my first post in that thread to reflect this. Cheers, Vero
  5. @alfred_user The simplest way to add an app is to pop up Alfred, search for the app and drag it to the workflow window I'll pass on the suggestion, but given how simple it already is to add files and apps, I'm not sure we'll be adding this. Cheers, Vero
  6. @leahcim For a File Filter, you can drag in an example file of what you'd like to search. For example, if you want to narrow your file filter to txt files only, you can drag in a text file to the File Types box. Adding UTIs manually is completely optional, but might give some users more flexibility. Cheers, Vero
  7. @pedrodaroza You'll also need to ensure you've granted Alfred Full Disk Access. You can access this via Alfred's General preferences: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/ Cheers, Vero
  8. @rfischmann As @vitor suggests, that should be possible with a workflow. If you come up with a clear idea of what you want to achieve in your sequence, we can likely help you make a workflow for it. E.g. do you need to tab between them? Just paste items 1 2 3 4 or 4 3 2 1 in order? Everyone's requirements and suggestions are wildly different from one another, so a workflow is better than trying to build something that suits everyone within Alfred itself. Cheers, Vero
  9. As I've explained here, Apple have made changes in Catalina, which means third-party apps like Alfred can no longer access Mail data: If Apple get enough feature requests, they may re-grant access for this. Cheers, Vero
  10. @swiggy You'll find details of the Evernote workflow here: You'll need to make sure you're using the correct version of Evernote with the matching version of the workflow; Always download from Evernote.com and not from the Mac App Store, as instructed by the first post in this thread Cheers, Vero
  11. As @deanishe suggested, this is intentional; While we use British English in most documentation/preferences, we made an exception for "license". Having said that, I've now added "licence" to the metadata for that page so that it's found by either spelling options Cheers, Vero
  12. @PeterTrain Could you please specify which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? Taking a look at your Powerpack license, you should update to Alfred 4.0.8, which will cover all paths required to find all apps if you're on Catalina (as Apple have moved apps to a new location in Catalina) Mega Supporters who haven't yet requested their v4 license can upgrade to Alfred 4 here: https://www.alfredapp.com/shop/upgrade/ If the issue persists, please take a look at the indexing troubleshooting page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/index
  13. @Nabil As @vitor said, the snippets themselves support text only (plain and rich text), but you can play with workflows to create your own actions based on a snippet trigger. When you say you want to "use" images and PDFs, do you want to attach these to emails, open them, etc? It's likely that there's a way to do this with AppleScript and a workflow depending on what you have in mind. If you can elaborate, we might be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  14. @ggiese You could also take a look at using Google's "site:" search parameter and see if you're happy with those results? Might be simpler...
  15. Are you searching using Spotlight or Finder? Finder uses a different, lower level search than Spotlight and Alfred. If Spotlight can find the files, it will be possible to configure Alfred to also find them.
  16. @Gee Could you please share your workflow, as it's difficult to help based on a screenshot? Also, if you use Alfred's Clipboard History feature (Features > Clipboard), does this work as expected? Cheers, Vero
  17. @Azmi You'll find your Alfred 4 preferences in the /Alfred/ folder (without a number - this is so that all future versions can continue to use the same folder, unlike previous versions) Have you used an app cleaner / uninstaller / cache cleaner / app that claims it'll clear up space on your drive automatically? If so, it's likely that this app has removed files essential files, in which case it may have moved things to Trash. cCheers, Vero
  18. @Azmi Are you syncing your preferences, and if so, what service are you using? Also, do you use Time Machine? If so, you should be able to locate the Alfred.alfredpreferences there and revert to it Cheers, Vero
  19. @soloman817 Please get in touch on our info@ email address for any license-related questions. I won't be able to answer these via private message on the forum. Cheers, Vero
  20. @bkfc There are already a couple of ways to access the Clipboard Viewer: The Clipboard Viewer hotkey, which you can set and change in Features > Clipboard The keyword set in the same preferences, "clipboard" by default Using the "?clip" keyword makes it easy to open the Clipboard preferences As such, it's unlikely we'd add a way to specifically access the Clipboard Viewer from the menu bar hat icon. If you're having issues with interfering hotkeys, you may wish to change your Clipboard Viewer hotkey (or the hotkey in the third-party app that's clashing with
  21. @40-02 In Console > Reports > Crash Reports, you'll see a crashlog beginning with Alfred_2020... and the date of the latest crash. Please drag this file into an email and send it to our bugs@ email address with a link to this thread. We'll then be able to tale a look at the full crash log. Cheers, Vero
  22. @Terminal Which app is that? The screen cap is too small to tell, but it's likely that the app itself has a copy behaviour that's interfering. Try the same thing in TextEdit and see how it goes. You can then narrow it down to the preferences for a specific app. Cheers, Vero
  23. Looks like you've disabled indexing on your Mac altogether; This means that if Spotlight is currently returning results, it's using a temporary cache, which will eventually expire. At that point, you won't get any results in Spotlight or Alfred. Take a look at the first response to this post for guidelines on re-enabling indexing on your Mac: https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/147841 Once your Mac's index is up and running again, type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache, and you'll be good to go. Cheers, Vero
  24. @tinjaw In that case, if you're on the right version, your search scope is correct, and you've rebuilt the index, we need to take a look at whether the metadata is correct. Please install the Metadata Tool and drag in an app Alfred can't find: https://cachefly.alfredapp.com/tools/AlfredMetadataTool_v1.1.zip Paste the output in your reply so that we can take a look at what the metadata for a given app contains. Please also go to the Help tab, click the Diagnostics button and email the file to our info@ address (referencing this thread so I know who it's
  25. @tinjaw No, it won't have anything to do with permissions. Again, please rebuild your Mac's index by going to Alfred's Advanced preferences, clicking the Rebuild button, choosing to Delete the Spotlight V-100. Complete the process in Terminal. An hour later, type "reload" into Alfred and let me know how you get on. This fixes the issue in 99% of cases. Cheers, Vero
