  1. That's the first recommendation I made to @Goldberry, which according to their response, did not solve their issue. Indeed. Context-changing (switching to and from another app) causes LibreOffice's own clipboard to sync with the macOS one, but otherwise, it behaves pretty poorly on that level. @Goldberry There clearly is a way to make this work, as @deanishe is using these together perfectly, so do take a look at LibreOffice's own preferences to see whether there's a better compatibility mode. Cheers, Vero
  2. @Goldberry Welcome to the forum More specifically, I suggested that if you let us know your exact version and settings for LibreOffice and macOS, @deanishe may have some thoughts on what preferences you may need to change in LibreOffice for to allow clipboard history to work smoothly with Alfred and the clipboard in general. Any thoughts, deanishe?
  3. We're aware of this and have also investigated the possibilties earlier this year, but as this plugin solution relies on private APIs (which can stop working at any moment, as the goalposts may be constantly moving, changing or simply disappearing), we don't plan on adding this. I responded more fully in this thread: As TJ adds in his reply, "building a tool like this is like building a house on sand". Cheers, Vero
  4. This is because the Evernote workflow is not getting any relevant results from Evernote. This can be for a few reasons so check that: You're using Evernote 7 from the legacy page on Evernote's site (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314-Install-an-older-version-of-Evernote) as the new Evernote 10 is a black box and doesn't allow other apps to search its results Make sure you're using the right Evernote workflow version from the first post of this thread to match your version of Alfred and Evernote Once you've done this, when you type "ent" followe
  5. @emmabaker Could you please drop us an email to info@ with the following information? Your Diagnostics file, which you can get by typing "?diagnostics" in Alfred Launch Activity Monitor, then launch Alfred and select it in the list of Processes. Click the Cog in the top of Activity Monitor and choose "Sample Process". Include this output into your email too Let me know whether you sync your preferences, and if so, where you sync them to As this is a very unusual issue, the more information you're able to provide, the easier we'll be able to help you out
  6. @april Welcome to the forum You'll need to remove Visual Studio Code from the "Don't expand" apps list in the Snippets preferences in order for the workflow snippets to expand, as these respect the same list of excluded apps. If you're having issues with your snippets expanding where they shouldn't, take a look at our tips for better snippet keywords: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/#tips-expansion In particular, setting decent prefixes that you won't accidentally use in code, for example, is a good way to ensure your snippets w
  7. @luckman212 I've managed to replicate this; Do you have scroll bars set to always show in the macOS General preferences? Andrew will be taking a look at this soon, but if you could just confirm this disappears if you return the macOS General scroll bar preferences to the default "Automatically based on mouse or trackpad" option, it'd be helpful Cheers, Vero
  8. Alfred uses the macOS metadata index for file search, he doesn't create or maintain his own index of your Mac's files. When using the "Rebuild macOS metadata" button in Alfred's advanced preferences, Alfred instructs macOS to rebuild its index. Do keep in mind that Big Sur has just been released and while it's been far more reliable than Catalina was last year, it remains a very new OS and unless you've done a completely fresh install of Big Sur, it's possible that there are hangups or corruption from the OS upgrade. If you haven't done so yet, look back up a few post
  9. @jayelevy The fact that apps are found by Spotlight right now isn't an all-conclusive guarantee that the index is correct, complete or otherwise free from corruption; It just means that Spotlight's current caching contains those apps. Does Alfred find other, non-app files on your Mac? E.g. in your Documents or Downloads? When you have a moment, could you please open System Preferences to the Security & Privacy > Privacy tab, and drag Terminal into the Full Disk Access permissions. Once you've done this, go to Alfred's Advanced preferences, rebuild the macOS metad
  10. @boutwell As we don't use any of the Microsoft apps suite or that particular workflow, it's very tricky for us to make any suggestions beyond this. Hopefully other Outlook users will pop in and be able to provide more pointers.
  11. @jayelevy @verypleasant Could you please try using Alfred's file search to find the files? Press the spacebar first, which will show the "Open File..." prompt, then type the name of your app. This will allow you to establish whether the apps are indeed indexed correctly by macOS, in which case it should show up in the File Search mode. Next, can you both please create a new user account on your Mac temporarily, and run Alfred (don't need to activate your Powerpack) in the same File Search mode, then again with no prefix. Do your apps appear in File Search? Do they appe
  12. "Automatically expand snippets" in the top right is the global feature switch-on/switch-off, while "Auto expansion allowed" is on an individual basis. You may want to use the expansion feature, but not for all. I have entire collections of snippets saved which I don't intend to learn the auto-expansion keyword for, and just refer to via the Snippets Viewer. Prefixes and suffixes are completely optional: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/collections/#affix You can choose a prefix for an entire collection, or set them on an individual basis.
  13. @agilefalcon If you've never synced your preferences, and use Time Machine, it should be very straightforward First pop Time Machine open, and go to the following location in your user directory: ~/Library/Application Support/Alfredl/ Within this folder, you'll find the Alfred.alfredpreferences file. Quit Alfred and restore this file. When you relaunch Alfred, you may need to re-enter your Powerpack license details (drop us an email if you need help finding your Powerpack license details - though it sounds like you've got that in hand) and your
  14. @jayelevy Moving the file around causes macOS to reindex them. This just confirms that the issue was caused by macOS not correctly indexing the files. @verypleasant Take a look at how @jayelevy resolved his issue above. Just move the apps to desktop and back, forcing macOS to reindex them. Let me know if that solves the issue for you too. (You might also want to type "reload" into Alfred afterwards to ensure Alfred's cache is as up to date as can be)
  15. @Gordon Firemark Which version of Alfred are you using? And which version of macOS? Have you taken a look at the File Troubleshooting tool? Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.2.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you can't locate. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if they're correctly included in Alfred's index. This will help you establish what might be happening on your Mac.
  16. @boutwell Does Outlook still make this information accessible to third-parties in Big Sur? Also, it may be worth checking where the messages library is stored in Big Sur vs the workflow's set search scope. It may be that Outlook messages have moved and you (or the workflow creator) to update the search scope.
  17. @jayelevy Looking back a few posts, you said that the app was found when moved the Desktop. Can I just confirm, was it then not-found again when returned to the Applications folder? If you move the app to be directly in the Applications folder rather than within the enclosing app's own named folder, what happens? Adobe have their own way of doing things, and I'm scratching my head at what non-standard setup could cause this behaviour.
  18. @agilefalcon Welcome to the forum Could you provide more details so I can help you further? Which version of Alfred are you using? Which version of macOS are you using? Did you recently update to Big Sur? Do you sync your Alfred preferences, and if so, which service have you been using? Do you use Time Machine to back up your Mac? Is this on a new Mac, or on a Mac where you've had everything installed for a while? Alfred updates don't modify the preferences, so your preferences wouldn't have disappeared because of an Alfred update. H
  19. @jayelevy @verypleasant It strikes me as very odd that you're both having the same issue with Adobe apps specifically. Could you please check the Adobe folder within the Applications folder and see whether the apps are indeed stored there? Or whether there's some funky symlinking going on, with the app actually being stored somewhere else? If the apps are symlinked, establish where the app is really stored and add that path to your Alfred search scope, so that Alfred knows to include it in your apps results. Let us know how you get on, as this will likely b
  20. Cmd + arrows navigates in and out of File Navigation, and Alt + arrows is used for the File Buffer, so those combos are very much in use already in Alfred. It's not just a case of what's comfortable, but also what's practical without affecting existing hotkeys and habits, so quite a bit of consideration and thought has gone into this.
  21. @apndavies Which version of macOS are you using? There was a direct link to the workflow higher up in this thread (which I've now removed, and added the caveat), so I'm guessing you haven't seen the notice in the original post here: Unfortunately, this workflow is only suitable for macOS Mojave and older, as Apple have removed access to Mail content for third-party apps from Catalina onwards. As such, if you're on Catalina or Big Sur, you won't see any results returned. Cheers, Vero
  22. @ordonezcrissss Alfred hasn't changed with regards to plain vs rich text snippets, so the best place to start is working out what has changed. Make sure your snippets are definitely set to rich text when you go into Alfred's snippets If you test this using TextEdit (a simple, native app) set to rich text on Big Sur, what behaviour do you see? Try a different text field in Chrome, other than your work website Try your work website in Safari This should allow you to narrow down where the issue lies, and make it easier to work out what's happening. If your snippets are
  23. @GrimlocK Alfred 4 on Big Sur works very well with 1Password. You can take a look at the setup steps for the 1Password 1Click bookmarks integration here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/1password/ If you're having any issues, the best place to start is the Troubleshooting page here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/1password/ If you still can't get the 1Password integration working, please provide more details and we'll be happy to help Cheers, Vero
  24. @AshR Could you please fill in your Powerpack email address in your forum profile first, as the 1Password feature is a Powerpack-specific feature? Once you've done this, please provide the preferences details we asked for from the user above; Your Features > 1PW prefs (feel free to crop out the content of your 1PW bookmarks, but let us know whether your bookmarks are showing correctly there) Exactly what you're typing into Alfred Cheers, Vero
  25. Also, feel free to share your new themes taking advantage of the Visual Effect here - we'd love to see them! If you share them as individual threads, please make sure that you mention that they require 4.3+ Cheers, Vero
