  1. 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
  2. @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
  3. @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 get
  4. @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
  5. @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 managem
  6. @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
  7. @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
  8. @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 t
  9. @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 > Wa
  10. @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
  11. @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
  12. 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

  14. @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 hav
  15. @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
  16. @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?
  17. @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
  18. 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
  19. @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 perm
  20. @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 ou
  21. @freerangemonkey Which version of Alfred and macOS are you using? Have you granted Alfred Accessibility? Cheers, Vero
  22. @SheriffCarter A solution has already been provided in the thread above to work around the Catalina bug: Change your Alfred theme to one that does not use the blur; You can do this by either switching to the Alfred Classic theme, or by turning the blur to zero on your custom theme. Cheers, Vero
  23. @Sigsegv Take a look at the questions here, and let me know whether you think this applies to you as well. I'm suspecting that Alfred appears off-screen because Catalina has lost resolution of how big your visible screen area is. Next time it happens, try popping up the invisible Alfred and typing the name of an app to launch. Does it launch? If so, Alfred is running but not visible. After a while, Catalina recalculates where the visible screen area is, resulting in Alfred appearing on screen again. In Alfred's Appearance > Options, make sure that "Save
  24. @ssppjj First, update to Alfred 4.0.6 to be on the current version. Next, which version of Chrome are you using? Please ensure this is also the latest. And finally, when you type "bm" followed by a space, you should see this: Do you see this until you start typing the name of a bookmark, and Alfred switches to the fallback searches? If that's the case, it means that no bookmarks are found. First, try removing and re-adding Alfred to the Full Disk Access permissions in case there's corruption there. Next, if you have any bookmark
