  1. @Yecine Welcome to the forum This crash is happening in Apple's network framework. Do you have anything installed on your Mac which could have modified this, such as blockers, firewalls, etc? If you temporarily create a new user account on your Mac (completely vanilla install), do you see this crash? This will help establish whether the issue is specific to your primary user account, or across all users on your Mac. Cheers, Vero
  2. Did you remove and re-grant as suggested? Did you try restarting your Mac? Have you renamed Airmail or moved it to an unusual location? Could you please try launching Console.app and seeing if there are any error messages? This is a feature that should work as expected and has been reported by other Airmail users as working fine, so you might need to put in a bit of legwork to help establish what's happening on your Mac specifically Cheers, Vero
  3. @Ustrich Did you grant Airmail full disk access as well? You can't do this from Alfred and will need to do it manually in the System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access. If you granted access before you upgraded to Catalina, you may need to remove apps and re-grant them permissions, as it seems some users are seeing permissions corruption when upgrading to Catalina, where macOS doesn't recognise that these apps already do have permission. Removing and re-adding solves the issue. Cheers, Vero
  4. @gingerbeardman Could you please share which version of Alfred, macOS and any dependencies of the workflow you're using? Also, when you look at the debug log, what do you see? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/debugger/ Cheers, Vero
  5. As suggested to earlier users, try removing and re-adding Alfred in the permissions; When upgrading to Catalina, it seems some users' permissions become corrupted and macOS "forgets" the permissions. Re-granting permissions seems to have solved the issue for everyone. Cheers, Vero
  6. @zjrollyson The first thing to do is to update to a current version of Alfred, so start by updating to Alfred 4.0.7 from the Update tab Cheers, Vero
  7. @Micael Welcome to the forum! Could you provide links to the exact workflows in question? There are quite a few Google-related community-created workflows, so links will allow us to take a look at which ones you're using If there are already threads for those workflows on the forum, that would be your ideal starting point; Post a detailed message in that thread, letting the workflow creator know which version of macOS and Alfred you're using (and Google Drive version, as I believe there are a few for personal or business use), and exactly what error messages you're getting. Alfred doesn't connect to Google, so it'll be something between the workflow and Google (which could be as simple as the workflow needing a little update if Google have updated some APIs or landing pages the workflow relies on). Cheers, Vero
  8. @Few questions about alfred Your license is for your use only, and should not be shared with anyone else. If a friend or family member wants to use the Powerpack, they'll need to purchase their own license. You can use your license on two Macs concurrently, provided both Macs are for your own use and not shared computers. Cheers, Vero
  9. @mspCCMA Could you please provide more details, so that I can help you further? - Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? - Are snippets enabled in Alfred's preferences? - Is the specific snippet enabled for expansion? - When you try to expand a snippet, at what stage does it fail? E.g. Does the snippet disappear and partially pasted, or is nothing pasted at all? Do you hear an error beep? - Does the issue occur in all apps or only some apps? Test in TextEdit, which is one of the simplest apps, as some more complex apps or browsers have their own clipboard management or behaviours that may cause issues - Do you use any third-party clipboard managers or snippets tools that may be interfering? The more details you provide, the quicker I can help you troubleshoot what's happening Cheers, Vero
  10. @mspCCMA There's no need to revert to an older version, as snippets should work perfectly in Catalina. If you've upgraded to Catalina, you may need to remove and re-add Alfred to the permissions, as some users experienced permissions corruption in the OS upgrade. Just remove Alfred from accessibility and full disk access, then re-add (via Alfred's General preferences tab, or manually), and you should be all sorted. If the issue persists, please let me know and I'll help you further Cheers, Vero
  11. @Anil Agrawal Have you tried deleting the file and re-downloading from https://www.alfredapp.com ? It may be that your download was incomplete and you'll just need to grab a new copy from our website Cheers, Vero
  12. @jgabrysch Take a look at whether other apps/services are interfering with that hotkey combo. Start by taking a look at the 3 things on this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/cmd-space/ (Spotlight, language switching and Siri). If you've recently updated to Catalina, it's possible that Spotlight has taken back Cmd + Space if you'd switched away from it, resulting in unexpected behaviour because two apps are trying to use the same hotkey. You can also try temporarily changing your Alfred hotkey away from Cmd + Space and to something else to troubleshoot whether Alfred works normally with a different hotkey combo. Cheers, Vero
  13. @ionstorm Could you help us get a reproducible case if you have a moment? We would then be able to report this to Apple, and hopefully get it resolved. It's my understanding from other users that the same issue happens with Spotlight, so if it can be replicated using Spotlight instead of Alfred, that's even better (as Apple will take it more seriously rather than blame third-party software...) Looks like you've established that in a scenario where you disconnect the second screen > put Mac to sleep without a second screen attached > Reconnect second screen > Wake Mac, you get the behaviour where Alfred appears of screen the first time you show Alfred on screen. If, when waking your Mac using the same order of actions as above, rather than immediately trying to show Alfred, you interact with Safari, launch another app, etc THEN show Alfred, does Alfred show on screen? If you do the above, but with Spotlight, does the same thing happen? This would indicate that in the time where you're fiddling with other apps first, macOS recalculates the screen dimensions, resulting in apps like Alfred and Spotlight showing where they're supposed to, rather than based on some previously-cached screen dimension. It'd be superbly helpful to get a reproducible order of events so that we can let Apple know that it occurs with Spotlight. And then maybe we'd all get a fix as a Xmas present (A girl can wish, right?) Thanks in advance, Vero
  14. @Jap As per my reply by email, could you please provide more information? Which version of Alfred are you using? Did you grant Alfred necessary permissions in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility? Please try removing Alfred from Accessibility and re-add him. It may be that the Accessibility permissions are corrupted and this will resolve the issue. Did you enable the Clipboard feature in Features > Clipboard by checking the boxes for the content types you want to save? Is Cmd + V still set to normally paste items from your macOS Clipboard? Could you please try pasting from the clipboard in a plain TextEdit file? Does this work as expected? The more information you're able to provide, the more likely I'll be able to help you troubleshoot this, as the Clipboard History feature should work normally provided Alfred has the right permissions. Cheers, Vero
  15. @Alex Popov Thanks for this - we've just had a look and LinkedIn has indeed changed the URL structure. We've put out a pre-release (4.0.8), which includes the fix for this URL Cheers, Vero
  16. I'm closing this thread as there are duplicates of what seems to be the same Catalina issue. Please pop any feedback into this thread: Cheers, Vero

  18. @Acidham When you think Alfred isn't responding, could you please type an app name and hit return to see if the action is performed anyway? As I've just explained to a user in this thread, I suspect that Catalina is failing to calculate the size of the visible screen properly, so Alfred is actually appearing off-screen. Take a look at the suggestions I've made (in the post I've linked and my most recent one at the bottom of that thread) and let me know how you get in. I'd be really grateful for some input as we've been unable to replicate this issue and I'd like to have a clearer idea of what's going on for the users who are seeing this. Cheers, Vero
  19. @scottmm If you granted permissions before upgrading to Catalina, it sounds like a few users are seeing corrupted permissions during the upgrade. Remove Alfred 4 from the permissions and grant access again. See if that solves the issue. Unfortunately, we can't fix the OS, that's down to Apple, so all you can do is request permissions again. Cheers, Vero
  20. @Sigsegv As we haven't encountered this ourselves on our Catalina Macs, and users don't tend to come back and provide more details once their personal issue is resolved, I don't know how or when Catalina re-calculates screen positions. You can try popping up Alfred's Appearance Options and dragging Alfred in the small box on the right, which would re-position Alfred. See if that makes it appear in a visible part of the screen? For anyone else coming across this thread, could 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) When Alfred doesn't appear on screen, please try launching an app using your usual Alfred hotkey. Please confirm if the app launches (which confirms that Alfred is present, but likely off-screen because of a miscalculation by Catalina). Cheers, Vero
  21. @indros Are you using the Alfred Classic theme, or the v4 default which is called Alfred? These are not the same, so please either switch to the Alfred Classic (which does not use blur) or duplicate the theme you want to use and set the blur to zero. Cheers, Vero
  22. You can duplicate any of the default themes and remove the blur. We're keeping an eye out to establish what proportion of users are affected (it seems to be a small minority) and work out whether it's necessary to modify built-in themes Cheers, Vero
  23. @freerangemonkey You'll need to provide more details if you'd like us to help troubleshoot the issue on your Mac. This isn't going to be a bug in Alfred, but rather something that's not quite configured correctly on your Mac, so the more information you can provide, the more likely we'll get to the bottom of this quickly Is Alfred included in Accessibility? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/ If you had set these permissions prior to upgrading to Catalina, please remove Alfred and add him again. A few people seem to have had issues where the permissions granted before Catalina were not being respected, but re-adding the apps to the appropriate permissions sections solved the issue. Cheers, Vero
  24. @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 outside of Alfred on your main profile, which you'll need to resolve first. Cheers, Vero
  25. @freerangemonkey Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? Have you granted Alfred Accessibility? Cheers, Vero
