  1. @MF76 Apologies for the slow response, it looks like I may have missed your post! First, I'm not familiar with "Albert" Joking aside, if you're using Mail.app on Mojave or earlier, you should be able to use the Mail.app workflow. Note that it is no longer possible to use it on Catalina, as Apple have rescinded the access third-party apps previously had, so Alfred can no longer search emails. You can grab the latest version of the workflow (3.0) from this post: Cheers, Vero
  2. @obadiahcruz No, it's not possible to see just the collections. However, they'll always come to the top of the list above individual snippets. Cheers, Vero
  3. @obadiahcruz Could you clarify where you're viewing your snippets? If you're looking at the Snippets Viewer (https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/#browsing-snippets), you'll see the collections at the top, then the snippets listed below alphabetically. If you know what snippet you're looking for, type the name, keyword or content from the snippet to narrow down the list to just the relevant ones. Please let me know what you mean if I'm misunderstanding your question. Cheers, Vero
  4. @Alitejawi This is a sign that indexing is broken or disabled on your Mac. Did you tinker with this? This will mean that Spotlight, Alfred and any other apps that rely on the metadata index will be unable to return results. In the future, please post Big Sur issues in the Big Sur bugs forum specifically rather than replying to a thread for an older OS version. Cheers, Vero
  5. @dentarg I assumed you were using the Text Expansion snippets feature, but it sounds like you were either using the Snippets Viewer, or the snip keyword? Text expansion is by far the most efficient way to use snippets If you're still having issues with either of those, let me know exactly how you were using it and I'll help you out... Cheers, Vero
  6. @Stephyn B Welcome to the forum! As per my suggestion two posts ago, please follow this step: When upgrading or restoring from a Time Machine backup, Catalina forgets permissions, so you need to reset them. This is all you need to do to get started again Cheers, Vero
  7. @dentarg Could you please go through the steps to reset permissions? Launch Alfred's preferences to the General tab > Request Permissions > Accessibility. In this System preferences panel, remove Alfred from the Accessibility permissions if he was already there, then add him again. This is a more common issue on Catalina, but may happen on Mojave as well, where macOS loses resolution of which apps have permission to use accessibility (required for pasting snippets for you) and re-setting it is sufficient to grant the permission again. If the issue persists, please
  8. @choc With the Powerpack, you can change the fallback searches to anything you like, including DDG https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/default-results/fallback-searches/ Cheers, Vero
  9. @Kubo Welcome to the forum If you're using Alfred 4.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the apps you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete. Pop the results of a few apps in your reply below and I'll help you work out what's happening. Cheers, Vero
  10. @kimillian Could you also please specify what app you're pasting into? Please test anything in plain text TextEdit, as it's the most standard native app. You'll then be able to establish whether the issue is with the destination app manipulating what you're pasting. For example, Google Docs tends to manipulate what you paste.
  11. @killmoms This isn't going to be a bug - it'll be because the hotkey is reserved by something else on your Mac. Once you work out what feature or third-party app is reserving Ctrl + Space and you un-set it there, you'll be able to use it for Alfred if that's the combo you'd like to use. Cheers, Vero
  12. @obadiahcruz 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
  13. @alfred_user It's not possible to show more rows, so just type part of the clipboard entry you're looking for to narrow down the results to the most relevant ones Alternatively use Fn + page down to go down a full page of clipboard results. Cheers, Vero
  14. @PizzaGuyRidesAtDawn There are a few ways to work with the fact that you're using Windows. You're correcting that pasting assumes Cmd + V will paste the current pasteboard content. The simplest way to deal with this is to pop up Alfred's Snippets Viewer, choose your snippet and use Cmd + C to copy it to your clipboard, then Ctrl + V to paste to your VM. I'm not familiar with Remote Desktop, but here are some steps I gave to a Parallels user some time ago, much of which would apply here: However, this comes with the caveat that I do not have access
  15. @PizzaGuyRidesAtDawn Welcome to the forum! Are you logging in remotely into a macOS or Windows machine? There are quite a few factors to take into account, so given you're already a Powerpack user, have you simply tried to see if snippets work in your Remote Desktop scenario? If you can provide more details about your particular setup, what has and hasn't worked so far, it'll be a lot easier for us to help you out Cheers, Vero
  16. @bubbafat Welcome to the forum If you know your snippets already, you might benefit from using the Snippet Text Expansion instead. In that case, there's no need to show the Snippet/Clipboard Viewer and risk exposing personal information. More about using snippets for text expansion here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/ Alternatively, if they're not snippets you know/want to learn by heart, you could create a List Filter that contains only the snippets you're likely to use on the big screen, and connect it to a Copy to Clipboard outpu
  17. @QBay Thanks for adding your details. Could you please open Alfred's preferences to General > Request Permissions... and go to the Accessibility permissions? Once you've authenticated, please remove and re-add Alfred from the Accessibility permissions. macOS can sometimes lose track of which apps have been granted these permissions, and re-setting them usually resolves the issue. Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  18. @QBay Welcome to the forum Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile, as the Clipboard feature is a Powerpack feature? I'll then be happy to help you troubleshoot why you might not be seeing your Clipboard entries pasted as expected. Cheers, Vero
  19. I've been following this conversation and just wanted to confirm that my last statement earlier in this thread still stands. Translating the app is only the very tip of the iceberg, as it then opens the door to requiring all documentation and support to be multilingual. I appreciate the enthusiasm of some users who would like to help, but this is a much bigger beast than asking a handful of volunteers to translate a few words every so often. If we took the steps needed to translate, proofread, document and support Alfred in all languages, you could add an extra zero at
  20. @Mario Kusek Go to Alfred's Features > Actions to change the default hotkey combo. Cheers, Vero
  21. @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
  22. @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.
  23. 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
  24. @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.
  25. @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
