  1. @Gregory Jones We found out a few hours ago that Evernote is changing, and I'll be attempting to get in touch with them to find out more, so please hold your horses. Cheers, Vero
  2. @finn-matti @Gregory Jones @ifihlshfhsfgje I'm truly sorry to hear that they've switched to Electron for future development. I'm not sure how receptive they are to feedback and feature suggestions, but if there's no support for working with external input at this stage (via AppleScript or otherwise), I would encourage you to make your voices heard either in their forums or by email. Thanks for bringing this up, and fingers crossed they listen to their community.
  3. @Gregory Jones I use this workflow pretty much daily, and I've checked for updates and it still works on the latest version of Evernote (7.14) on Catalina. Could you please ensure that you're using Evernote from Evernote.com (not the Mac App Store version) and that you're using the Evernote Workflow 9 beta 4, from the very top of the first post in this thread? If you're still having issues, please pop up the debugger and give more details as to what error messages you're seeing? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/advanced/debugger/ Let m
  4. @JolinM You could just do "If query is equal to [blank], take the first path, else (when there is a query) do the "else" action". Sounds like it should do what you want? Or I may have misunderstood your question, in which case, please provide more details Cheers, Vero
  5. @nikivi Ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1, go to Alfred's preferences > Help > Troubleshooting and run the File Search Troubleshooting, dragging in some of the files you are expecting to see in your File Filter. This will give you more information on whether the metadata for these files is complete, and if their file type matches what you've included in your File Filter. Cheers, Vero
  6. @Paul Harrison There are significantly more efficient ways to search for files than turning on that file type. Could you provide the File Troubleshooting output so that we can help you further?
  7. @Paul Harrison Are the files appearing in Spotlight's results? If you open System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud, is Optimised Storage on or off? In order for iCloud to store the actual files on your Mac (rather than storing them in the cloud and requesting them only when needed), Optimised Storage should be off. Cheers, Vero
  8. @P. Colin Manikoth As deanishe explains, the second snippet could never be typed as the first one would expand. If what you want is to type the full snippet keyword and for Alfred to only expand when you type a space afterwards, you can either add the space to your keyword itself (e.g. ":ux " noting the space after the x) or add it as a suffix for the entire collection. In that case, your second snippet would become possible. Cheers, Vero
  9. @Mal Apropos The Option + Command + C hotkey is the default Clipboard History viewer hotkey. You can go to Alfred's preferences > Features > Clipboard and change the Viewer hotkey to something that suits you better Snippets are a brilliant way to avoid repeating typing the same things, whether it's a whole paragraph of text, an email signature or a URL you frequently need. You'll find the full page on Snippets, including some examples, on this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/ As for the Templates, these are in
  10. @M4L @deanishe After some investigating a few days ago, Andrew was able to work out what's happening. It seems to be specifically related to the column view in Finder. If you change the default Finder view to items or list, then it works as expected. The workaround is to change the Finder view, or to use "Open File" instead of "Reveal in Finder", as this will open the folder in Finder, but also select it. This is clearly a bug in Catalina, and we tried various workarounds to this issue using Apple's APIs to no avail. You get the same behaviour if you cmd+re
  11. @sighound Always check your spam/filtered folders (e.g. Gmail's Promotions tab) in case it was filtered by your email service. If you're still unable to locate it, hit reply on your receipt email and let us know. We'll then be able to reissue it for you Cheers, Vero
  12. @cdispoto These results indicate that there's a deeper indexing issue on your Mac, outside of Alfred. The first step is to restart your Mac and see whether the message has changed. If it remains the same and your index doesn't appear to rebuild, take a look at these two threads, which refer to the same error message you're seeing. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/254039/spotlight-borked-after-macos-sierra-update https://www.reddit.com/r/applehelp/comments/3wwjwx/spotlight_search_doesnt_search_applications_after/ Do you have any idea wh
  13. @MJS-UK Welcome to the forum As we've discussed earlier in this thread, Apple have a habit of moving the goalposts without warning. Email search worked in every version up to Mojave, where the files were indexed as part of the macOS metadata index. In Catalina, the files are still there but, without notice, Apple intentionally chose to no longer return the email files in the indexed metadata. This may be a temporary or permanent change; we're not privy to this information from Apple, so we do our best to make as much of your Mac's data available, but this
  14. @amstrong32 The best way to do this is by creating a small workflow with a file nickname, as per the "App nickname" example in this post: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-get-the-results-you-want-in-alfred-every-time/ You can even use Spotlight's Privacy feature to stop Slack from appearing in your search results if you prefer. Just make sure you type "reload" into Alfred when you've dragged the app to Spotlight Privacy. Cheers, Vero
  15. @cdispoto Which version of Alfred are you using? Cheers, Vero
  16. @chris When you first picked a spot in Dropbox, did it say "Alfred will use these existing preferences" or "Alfred's preferences will be copied to this folder"? We try to make the difference between using a pre-existing set of preferences that was already present, and copying your existing preferences to the new location abundantly clear in this process, so that if you select an existing set of preferences, it doesn't get overwritten. Glad you're all sorted though. Cheers, Vero
  17. @trytwowheels Take a look at the "Adding keywords as nicknames" section of this blog post. A really quick little workflow is the easiest way to do this https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-get-the-results-you-want-in-alfred-every-time/ This is the most reliable way to give other names to your apps, and doesn't rely on macOS features like tags and comments that aren't always reliable. Cheers, Vero
  18. @Gad If you use the file troubleshooting tool, are files still showing as lacking metadata?
  19. @Whiskey T. Alfred doesn't include all text files in default results by design, to keep your results clean. Default results include apps, and what you've chosen to include in Features > Default Results. To search for files, prefix your search with "open" (or press the spacebar as a shortcut) to search for a broader range of file types defined under Features > File Search. You might like to take a look at our Beginner's Guide to searching your Mac with Alfred: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/beginners-guide-to-alfred-searching-your-mac-and-the-
  20. @Gad In your second screenshot, I can see that Terminal hasn't been granted Full Disk Access. This is necessary for Terminal to be able to run the indexing process, so please check the box next to Terminal and go through the process again. Cheers, Vero
  21. @Otter Alfred uses the Music API (which is the sole way your music content is accessible to other apps in recent versions of macOS) and this API doesn't return internet streams in the results. However, there is a workaround available; Create a playlist for your radio stream, and Alfred will show it in the Mini Player. Make sure you press Cmd + R when the Mini Player is showing to refresh the content once you've created playlists. Cheers, Vero
  22. @Liden99 As indicated in Alfred's "Request permissions" menu, there's no need to manually add Alfred to Automation, as this will be requested automatically by macOS when needed. Cheers, Vero
  23. @Elijen Could you please provide more details? When you say accessing through keyword, are you referring to the snip keyword? Which apps are you pasting to? Please test this using TextEdit in plain text mode, to ensure the destination app isn't playing a part in the issue. Could you also please let me know which version of Alfred and macOS you're using? Cheers, Vero
  24. @annafung Open Alfred's preferences to General > Request permissions... Under Accessibility, remove and re-add Alfred, as Catalina can forget which apps have been granted permissions and re-setting it is usually sufficient to re-enable this. Let us know how you get on. Cheers, Vero
  25. @raguay.customct Ctrl + V? Have you changed defaults from the macOS Cmd + V? If so, Alfred is expecting Cmd + V to be the standard paste combo. If you did mean Cmd + V and content isn't being pasted, which version of macOS are you using? If you're in Catalina, please open Alfred's prefs to General > Request Permissions... and remove / re-add Alfred from the Accessibility permissions, as Catalina seems to forget permissions upon update. If the issue persists, please provide more details: Do snippets paste as expected? Content from Clipboard History? Did y
