  1. @BretonTom There are various ways you could do this, but just for fun I tried one where I used a list filter to choose whether I want the time or the date and time, then the macOS Alex voice reads it out via Terminal. You can grab it here as a starting point: https://www.dropbox.com/s/txtzjwv6ynv0t3d/Say the time.alfredworkflow?dl=0 Play around with time and date formatting if you want to hear something more specific: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/placeholders/#date-time Having said that, as @Alan He says, I find it quicker to j
  2. @JasonMark As suggested by @deanishe Alfred will need Full Disk Access permissions. I've just added a little note on the Bookmarks preferences page as a reminder that Full Disk Access is needed, as I realised that wasn't made obvious there https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/bookmarks/ Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  3. @dansherman Do you use any other third-party tools that may be manipulating your index? Some "app cleaners" that claim to run background processes to keep your Mac lean? If so, disable these as they're likely messing with your index, as you definitely shouldn't have to reindex your Mac every few days. Nothing is changing in Alfred during these few days between your searches; the only thing that changes is the macOS metadata index either returning files to Alfred, or not returning files. If they are being returned to Alfred, he shows them, otherwise he doesn't know that the files ex
  4. @dansherman Did you grant Terminal Full Disk Access as per my first reply?
  5. @dansherman Did you ensure you deleted the Spotlight V100 before starting your reindex? Looks like your index might still be incomplete or corrupted, as opening files essentially reindexes them individually, which would explain why you only see these previously-opened files. Did you see any indexing errors in Terminal while going through the process of reindexing?
  6. After nearly a year of chasing, I've received a response from Airmail, simply stating that "Unfortunately, we do not provide support for the Applescript as it is the external part of the Airmail app. Users with good knowledge of Applescript can create a script for this action at their end." They did not provide any feedback on the script examples we provided or error messages users have experienced, and solely advised that users should update to the latest version of Airmail from the App Store.
  7. @renforter If Alfred is merging items, you're likely either pressing Cmd + C + C (double-tapping C while holding Command) or might have another Clipboard app also installed that's causing this perceived double Cmd + C action. Merging isn't on by default, and can be disabled in Alfred's Preferences > Features > Clipboard > Meging. More info about merging here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/#merging Cheers, Vero
  8. @dansherman Have you rebuilt your Mac's index? First, please pop open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Full Disk Access and add Terminal Once you've done this, go to Alfred's Advanced preferences, choose "Rebuild macOS Metadata" Ensure that you check "Delete .Spotlight-V100 before reindex" Follow the steps in Terminal, and keep a close eye for any error messages relating to your index. Please let me know if there are any errors. Otherwise, if it proceeds smoothly, you may need to wait up to an hour for the reindex to complete.
  9. @robohit The string you can see in your 1Password is the UID for the item, and is how 1Password recommends using the 1Click Bookmarks integration. You should see the correct result for the bookmarks you searched for in 1Password when opening it. Having said that, in the next Alfred update (not yet in pre-release), we've made a change to the 1PW integration so you'll no longer see this in the search bar. Cheers, Vero
  10. @AymarM Please take a look at the rest of the troubleshooting page, which includes instructions on rebuilding your Mac's index so that files are found. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/#rebuild Cheers, Vero
  11. @ABC_A When choosing your Alfred 4 license, you can either opt for the Single User license, or the Mega Supporter. If you choose the Single User license, you'll be able to upgrade in the future when the next version of Alfred is released. If I've understood your question correctly, you'd be looking to upgrade from Single to Mega during the same version, which isn't possible. If you choose the Mega Supporter license now, you'll get all future updates to Alfred for Mac for free Cheers, Vero
  12. @Jeff_314 If you prefix your search with the spacebar (which broadens the file search), does the app appear in results? Even when the information appears to be correct in the metadata, it can be beneficial to rebuild your index (and solves the vast majority of index-related issues) To do this fully, please follow these steps carefully: - Grant Terminal Full Disk Access - Go to Alfred's Advanced preferences and click "Rebuild macOS Metadata" - Check the box to delete Spotlight-V100 - Go through to Terminal, enter your password then keep a close eye for any err
  13. @Jeff_314 First, make sure you're using Alfred 4.3. Then, could you please take a look at the Indexing troubleshooting page and run the troubleshooter? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  14. Impressive! That was within about 24 hours of us launching the Powerpack for the very first time
  15. @Jordi To make things easier for others to help you out, here are a few suggestions of what you should include in a post calling out for help: The link to the app/site you're referring to (there are often more than one by the same name) and the exact version if you're referring to an app. Your workflow-in-progress to show what you've achieved so far (and so someone else can build upon what you've done rather than have to start from scratch) If you've taken the time to investigate whether the app has API documentation, links to anything relevant you can provide Any other
  16. @yet @Mustafa Once you're in Terminal, can you please confirm whether it says "Indexing enabled"? Did you disable indexing on your Mac? Also, ensure that in step 4, folders and drives are NOT in the Spotlight Privacy, as any content in this tab will not be indexed by macOS. Cheers, Vero
  17. @dfay We've had a look at how they do it, in case there was a new reliable way to search Mail, but as @deanishe says, it's using private APIs that aren't intended for use by external apps. Here's my more complete response after we investigated this: Cheers, Vero
  18. @jl_al For future reference, when you import a collection, Alfred will give you the option to strip the auto-expand flags, which is particularly helpful in a situation where you're importing someone else's collection and their keyword choices may clash with your existing snippets. If you uncheck the "strip auto expand flag" box before importing, any enabled boxes will be kept - and from memory, they're all already pre-checked in that emoji collection Cheers, Vero
  19. @robohit Welcome to the forum. Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile? This is only visible to admins, and allows us to confirm that you're a Powerpack license holder. We'll then be happy to help you further with this Cheers, Vero
  20. @Richard Fuhr Which version of Alfred are you using? Please ensure you're using Alfred 4.3 from https://www.alfredapp.com Take a look at this troubleshooting page if Alfred cannot find certain apps: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ Cheers, Vero
  21. @face To my knowledge, nothing has changed in Google's decision to not make Google Drive indexable, as per the thread you replied to back in November: If Google offers an option for Google Drive files to be stored locally, so that macOS can index them properly, then Alfred should be able to return results. Let me know how you get on Cheers, Vero
  22. @jun4rui Glad you were able to work out the fill-in form was the issue and you're all sorted now Enjoy the Powerpack features! Cheers, Vero
  23. @jun4rui Pop an email to our info@ email address with your details (but do not include any credit card details in your email) and I'll take a look at what's happening with your particular transaction, as other transactions are completing successfully otherwise today. Cheers, Vero
  24. @sccsaluda That's correct; features like Clipboard History and Snippets auto-expansion need to be enabled on your new Mac, as well as granting permissions for Accessibility. Glad you worked it out You can see the full list of preferences that are non-synced to allow you to have different settings on one Mac to another: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/advanced/sync/#not-synced Cheers, Vero
  25. @bobroger In Alfred's Appearance > Options, you can tell Alfred where you want him positioned: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/appearance/#options Cheers, Vero
