  1. @blacksmithtb It sounds like there are some more severe permissions issues on your Mac if you're unable to keep any apps in the Accessibility and Full Disk Access preferences. I would recommend temporarily creating a new user account on your Mac to test whether you're able to make permissions stick there. Try adding Alfred and any other apps to your Accessibility preferences, log out or restart and see whether they remain listed as having the permissions. If they do on the secondary profile, but not on your primary one, this will confirm that there are deeper permissions issues ou
  2. @freerangemonkey Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? Have you granted Alfred Accessibility? Cheers, Vero
  3. @SheriffCarter A solution has already been provided in the thread above to work around the Catalina bug: Change your Alfred theme to one that does not use the blur; You can do this by either switching to the Alfred Classic theme, or by turning the blur to zero on your custom theme. Cheers, Vero
  4. @Sigsegv Take a look at the questions here, and let me know whether you think this applies to you as well. I'm suspecting that Alfred appears off-screen because Catalina has lost resolution of how big your visible screen area is. Next time it happens, try popping up the invisible Alfred and typing the name of an app to launch. Does it launch? If so, Alfred is running but not visible. After a while, Catalina recalculates where the visible screen area is, resulting in Alfred appearing on screen again. In Alfred's Appearance > Options, make sure that "Save
  5. @ssppjj First, update to Alfred 4.0.6 to be on the current version. Next, which version of Chrome are you using? Please ensure this is also the latest. And finally, when you type "bm" followed by a space, you should see this: Do you see this until you start typing the name of a bookmark, and Alfred switches to the fallback searches? If that's the case, it means that no bookmarks are found. First, try removing and re-adding Alfred to the Full Disk Access permissions in case there's corruption there. Next, if you have any bookmark
  6. @ssppjj Can you please clarify what you're seeing? This isn't enough information for us to be able to help you troubleshoot the issue. Which version of Alfred are you using? Which version of macOS are you using? Did you grant Alfred Full Disk Access in the General > Request Permissions? Which sources are you using, Safari and/or Chrome? The more information you provide, the easier we'll be able to help you out Cheers, Vero
  7. @berksgr Could you provide more details on exactly which apps and what you're doing? I've just tested this between a few apps, and see identical behaviour, whether I'm changing app using Alfred, Spotlight or Alt + Tab. If you can provide a reproducible step-by-step of the behaviour you're seeing, and what you're expecting, I'll take a further look Cheers, Vero
  8. @rtlong Can you please provide more details about your setup? Which version of macOS are you using? Which version of Alfred are you using? What Mac + monitor setup do you use? (e.g. retina or not, do you change setup between laptop and external screen) Users who've reported experiencing an issue with this seem to disappear and not come back with further questions after these suggestions, so it's difficult for us to establish *what* is the source of the issue to help future users. This leads me to believe the solution is very simple, but once users don't experience the is
  9. @ionstorm Thanks for providing some details; Here are a few more questions to help establish what's going on Do you sync your preferences? If so, to what service and what is the exact path? There's a possibility that if you're using a service where the file isn't available on wake (e.g. Google Drive), Alfred doesn't think you have any customisations and reverts to default preferences, in which case he'd switch back to Alt + Space, the default hotkey. Do you have an external screen? Do you plug and unplug from it? Some users have reported Alfred not appearing on screen after
  10. @afzalive More relevant than Alfred build versions (which are unlikely to be the source of your slow results), which version of macOS are you using? Alfred relies on the macOS metadata, so if you've recently updated to Catalina, there's likely an issue with the underlying metadata index. Are you seeing "Waiting for results from macOS..." when doing a file search? When you see the "Waiting for results" in Alfred, it is Alfred waiting for the macOS metadata server to return file results to him, and the performance at this point is entirely outside of Alfred's control. Hav
  11. @bubbabr You could create a File Filter workflow for PDFs with an Open File action, where you specify the app the file should be opened in. Cheers, Vero
  12. @outsider If you want to disable Snippets altogether temporarily, just type ?snip into Alfred to pop up the Snippets preferences and uncheck the box in the top right to disable expansion Cheers, Vero
  13. @raguay.customct This all sounds highly unusual, and seems to be unique to your Mac. Have you tried basic troubleshooting steps? For example: Do you see this issue at all if you create a new temporary user account on your Mac and launch Alfred there? Does the issue occur after you restart your Mac? Are you experiencing any other oddities on your Mac outside of Alfred, such as performance issues, quirkiness? Cheers, Vero
  14. You will need to grant Airmail full disk access as it will be Airmail attempting to access the file for attachment.
  15. @Ehler Catalina requires more granular permissions for apps, so it may be that you need to grant Airmail Full Disk Access under System Prefs > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access. If you add Airmail there, do attachments start working as expected? Cheers, Vero
  16. @orokusaki Are you using any third party tools that might be using Shift + 8 for something else, resulting in the error beep you're hearing? It's normal for Alfred to say "Please enter a valid expression" when 2* is entered, as Alfred is just waiting for you to finish your calculation to give you a result. If you're unable to work out what's causing the beep, try the following: - Quit all third-party apps and tools, try again - Try creating a temporary user account on your Mac (no need to activate your Powerpack license on that profile, as the calculator is a core/free v
  17. @snsokstan Take a look at the Unicode date formats here and search for milliseconds for more details of how you should format your date: http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/tr35-31/tr35-dates.html#Date_Format_Patterns There's both fractional seconds and milliseconds in day, so take a look at what you prefer and their respective formats. Cheers, Vero
  18. @Yago Did you take a look at the thread above and follow Andrew's suggestions to choose a theme without background blur, or set the background blur of your theme to zero? Cheers, Vero
  19. Sorry, it had picked up the bracket as part of the link - I've moved it to avoid that I'm also moving this thread out of bugs and into discussion & help as it's not a bug. Cheers, Vero
  20. @Richard D Could you please let us know which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? This is fairly vital information when posting an issue. Assuming you're on Catalina, there are two possible sources of this issue: 1. Display issue Do you use an external screen occasionally? One possibility is that if macOS has to switch between retina and non-retina, it loses resolution of where your visible screen is and is actually showing Alfred off-screen. If that's the case, you should be able to hit Cmd + Space and type something that will give you a predictable r
  21. @Arch1m3d3s Can you please try setting the sync location to a local folder as suggested to see if you're getting more predictable behaviour? iCloud can be unpredictable, and has changed throughout Catalina betas and early general release builds. Generally, we recommend ensuring that you disable Optimised Storage and that you keep a backup of your preferences, e.g. via Time Machine, in case iCloud does something unexpected. Here's more information about Optimised Storage: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207236 Cheers, Vero
  22. @Arch1m3d3s Welcome to the forum Could you please let me know whether you sync your Alfred preferences? If so, what's your sync path? You can refresh your memory by looking at the Alfred Advanced preferences, where you'll see it in the bottom right. If you're using an external volume or a sync service where your preferences aren't stored locally, my guess is that Alfred can no longer find the preferences when you reopen your Mac - at least until the sync folder becomes available again. It's also worth noting that Option + Space is Alfred's default combo. We
  23. @jayhlee These are two different modes; In Alfred's default results, Cmd + number actions the result (e.g. if it's an app, it'll launch the app, if it's a folder, it opens the folder, and if it's a custom search, it performs the search in your default browser) In File Navigation mode (which is the mode you enter with the Previous Path hotkey), Enter navigates into the folder As such, the preferences under File Search > Navigation only apply to the File Navigation mode. If you want to navigate into a folder from Default Results, you can use Cmd + down to enter Fil
  24. @Neulsaem Ha I've merged your post into this thread, as it seems to be the same issue. Take a look at Andrew's response above for more details: Cheers, Vero
