  1. It's always a case of hoping Apple don't make invisible changes that affect iCloud, but at this time, if you disable Optimised Storage (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207236) on your Macs, it may be sufficiently reliable for syncing. We always recommend keeping an up to date Time Machine as a backup Cheers, Vero
  2. @AndroidKitKat If you can locate your VM apps, you can drag them into the Spotlight Privacy folder. Once you've done that, type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache, and your VM apps will no longer show up in your results. Cheers, Vero
  3. This is now the actual location of apps in Catalina. Andrew is planning on adding a bit of logic to be able to show the virtual locations of the apps (/Applications/.../) in a future release Cheers, Vero
  4. @sballin Just popping my head in quickly (I haven't looked at the workflow at this point) to say that apps have moved in Catalina, so if you've linked to a hardcoded location for the Notes app, that may simply need to be updated to reflect the new path I'm not on a Catalina Mac right now, but @Regluke and @Jasondm007 should be able to give you the details you need from Catalina. Thanks for the great workflow Cheers, Vero
  5. In what application or website have you seen this? I've tested this in TextEdit, and if there's a trailing space at the end of the snippet content, this is respected when it's pasted. However, we know that certain apps/sites like Google Docs and Microsoft Word manipulate content before pasting, resulting in lost or added paragraph breaks, line breaks, trailing spaces, etc. If you try it in TextEdit as plain text, what behaviour do you see? Cheers, Vero
  6. @Hervé Are you running VLC? There's a bug between macOS and VLC, which can be seen occasionally in Alfred and in macOS native pop-up menus. If you quit VLC, the issue should go away. Cheers, Vero
  7. @wealthychef Yes, Alfred is fully Catalina-ready. Which build of Catalina are you using? Apple are releasing regular builds, and I believe the Catalina GM (final release before general release to the public) was released a few days ago. You should make sure you're on the latest, and let us know exactly which build. When typing "reload" in Alfred, you should see the following: You can also clear the app cache by going to Alfred's Advanced > Files/Apps "Clear Application Cache" in the top left. Cheers, Vero
  8. @wealthychef Type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache first. If the issue is with Alfred having cached the old and new location, that'll resolve it. If you still see two at that point, then macOS may have got itself into a more serious muddle, and is actually providing duplicate results to Alfred. Which version of Alfred and which macOS build are you using? Cheers, Vero
  9. @catherio Pop by Features > Snippets > Auto Expansion Options > Sounds, and uncheck the box for playing a sound when expanding a snippet https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/advanced/ Cheers, Vero
  10. Hi @egied Welcome to the forum and apologies for the lack of response. I saw that Dean had responded, and thought you were all sorted when I glanced at the post. The first thing to do is to go through the steps on the Indexing Troubleshooting page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ If your issue persists after a reindex, please provide more details: What are the names of the folders you're searching for and their paths? Which ones are being returned and which not? Did the issue start recently or since an OS install/upgrade, etc?
  11. @pzgz I've just updated to the latest Catalina beta and I'm seeing the same thing. We won't fix anything for now, as things have constantly changed in Catalina, so we'll hold off for a final build. At that stage, we'll work around this issue if it's still present. For what it's worth, the path that's being listed there is the actual location of the applications now, and it's what's being passed in to Alfred. Cheers, Vero
  12. @rab523 If you haven't already done so, you need to enable the Clipboard History: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/#clipboard-history You also need to grant Alfred permissions so that your Mac's clipboard can be manipulated: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/ By default Clipboard History is disabled for your privacy, but as soon as you follow the two steps above, you should be good to go Let me know how you get on! Cheers, Vero
  13. @pzgz First, make sure you're using Alfred 4.0.4. Next, take a look at Alfred's Features > Default Results; Make sure the checkbox for "macOS Applications" above the large Search Scope box is ticked. This will ensure that apps from all standard locations in Catalina are included. Once you've done this, type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the app cache Cheers, Vero
  14. @moiraine Given we've tested this feature quite thoroughly on Catalina, I'm leaning towards being an issue on your Mac rather than a broader Catalina issue. Snippets and Clipboard History are two quite independent features, so if you're having issues with both: Have you changed/remapped the Cmd + V default paste shortcut in macOS? Do you have any other keyboard modifiers or clipboard managers that could be interfering with normal paste operations? If that's the case, try quitting or disabling them. If you've upgraded from 10.14 to 10.15 beta, it'll be worth going b
  15. @moiraine Alfred 4 has been thoroughly tested in macOS Catalina and is working smoothly. There are a few things you need to do to use Clipboard History and Snippets, so take a look at the relevant setup steps below: 1. Grant Alfred permissions: You'll need to ensure you've granted Alfred the necessary permissions. You can access this list of permissions from the General tab in Alfred's prefs: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/#integration Specifically, you need to ensure that you've granted Accessibility.
  16. Could you please provide a screenshot of the Mail workflow so that we can see the keywords (if you've modified them)? Also, can you let us know exactly what you're typing into Alfred, and what results you're expecting? Finally, which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? The more information you can provide, the more likely we'll be able to help you troubleshoot the issue on your Mac. Cheers, Vero
  17. @karl235474 Welcome to the forum! Could you please show me what your Features > Clipboard preferences look like? What exactly are you typing in Alfred's search window? Also, please let me know exactly which version of macOS and Alfred you're using so that I can help you further. Cheers, Vero
  18. @caspian An alternative way to do this is with an extremely simple workflow connecting a Keyword object to an Launch Apps/Files; You can then set your keyword to the word you want, with "no argument" on the right, and drag the Spark app to the "Launch Apps" object. Finally, you can hide Mail.app from your results by dragging it to Spotlight's Privacy tab, then typing "reload" into Alfred to refresh the application cache. You'll never accidentally launch Mail again Cheers, Vero
  19. @Ghost02 Welcome to the forum! You'll need to ask your license administrator, as it's your company's responsibility to decide whether they're willing to allocate a corporate license activation for your home usage. (Some may say yes if you occasionally work from home, others will require that you purchase your own Powerpack license for personal use). Note that your company will be aware that you've activated on two Macs once you do this, so it's preferable to ask first. Cheers, Vero
  20. @bbb Welcome to the forum. Can I clarify whether you deleted the Alfred.alfredpreferences from the ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/ folder or /Alfred 3/? It should be the former, not the latter (otherwise you're removing your Alfred 3 prefs in the process, which means there are no preferences to use for Alfred 4 to migrate). Do you backup your preferences with Time Machine? If so, you should be able to locate the Alfred.alfredpreferences file from prior to your upgrade, and go from there. Let us know if you need further help Cheers, Vero
  21. @mikejandreau Could you share your workflow so far, so that we can help you further? You can save a variable for later use using an arg/var object: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/utilities/argument/ Then you can include the saved variable using {var:varname} in your Copy to Clipboard output object: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/outputs/copy-to-clipboard/ The item will then be copied to your clipboard as well if you need to use it outside of your workflow. If I've misunderstood what you're trying to achieve, please share the
  22. @JimL Assuming you're launching your workflow from a keyword, connect two "Open URL" actions from your keyword (which means there will be three connections coming out of your single keyword, and copy/paste in the URL of the website from your browser to each of the two Open URL objects. Here's more info on the Open URL action: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/actions/open-url/ Cheers, Vero
  23. @thecrumb The odds of a user wanting the same action as +5 minutes ago are quite low, so leaving the previous query in Alfred's search field creates clutter rather than convenience. If Firefox is your most used result for the query "f", you can launch it with three keystrokes; 1. Pop up Alfred, 2. type "f", 3. hit return on Firefox. I'd say that suits even the laziest of users Cheers, Vero
  24. @thecrumb Just in case you've misunderstood the feature; Alfred remembers your last 20 typed queries. It shows the latest one if you pop Alfred back up within 5 minutes (based on the assumption that if you pop Alfred up more than 5 minutes later, you're probably looking to search for something new, so there's no need to clutter the field). If it's been longer than 5 mins, pop up Alfred (it'll show an empty field) then use the up arrow to browse through the 20 latest queries Cheers, Vero
  25. @stefanscheidt It looks like the metadata is incorrect (and this isn't cached by Alfred, it's provided by Spotlight). I would recommend rebuilding your Mac's index, which is likely to refresh and fix any incorrect metadata in the process. You can do this from the Rebuild macOS metadata button in Alfred's Advanced preferences. [Moving to Discussion & Help] Cheers, Vero
