  1. I really like this theme, especially the light version
  2. Andrew, I'm seeing the exact same after updating to the 1P beta and the latest release of Alfred. I don't use the menu bar icon but upon launching the latest Alfred, the process is running (shows in Activity Monitor), hotkey based workflows still work but pressing my hotkey (Cmd+Space) to activate Alfred doesn't bring up the UI. I actually get the an error beep/chime when I press it. I got into Prefs by doing "Show Package Contents" on Alfred and getting to the Preferences app. I don't know what build I have previously but I believe that it worked with the previous prerelease I had. I believe it broke after I updated to the latest. It shows 3.2 [749] in the Preferences UI, but the change log within Prefs shows [748]. I can change the Alfred hotkey but that doesn't resolve the problem I disabled the 1Password integration, still no dice. The 1Password settings in Alfred prefs was initially really slow to load as well. Is there anything else you could recommend to try?
  3. Are you still having this issue? Alfred should definitely be finding this file based on the search criteria you provided. I just touched a quick file, named the exact same thing and Alfred finds it just as expected. I would have suggested reindexing but it seems that he does seem to find it other ways.
  4. When you installed emacs, did you install it within /Applications and then make a shortcut in the dock or did you just drag the application directly into the dock? If you dragged directly into the dock, that would probably be the issue. If you installed it in /Applications, then Alfred should find it. Does Spotlight find it? If it is in /Applications and not being found, perhaps you should reindex the drive. You can also check out some of the other troubleshooting options listed here
  5. As the others have pointed out, the Javascript supported is the Javascript API that is built into OSX and not Javascript based on a specific runtime like Node.js or io.js. Alfred only provides built in support for languages that come preinstalled within OSX which eliminates things like Node.js and io.js. You could still create workflows to use node by setting your environment within the code area of a Run Script like this: /usr/local/bin/node <<-'CODE' var temp = require('underscore') console.log('testing this') CODE
  6. It is the expected behavior of Alfred. Script Filter results basically aren't processed by Alfred. It's up to you, the developer to do that selection and/or filter the results based on the input by the user.
  7. Bill, I moved this into the workflow help section of the forums to get it a little more exposure. Are you needing help with something in particular on this or simply looking for pointers?
  8. Rebuilding the index doesn't really show much. It all takes place in the background. If you noticed, in the terminal window that was opened, it says that you can check the status of the index process by clicking on the Spotlight magnifying glass icon in the menu bar. In previous versions of OS X, that was correct. Starting with Yosemite, you would actually have to click the icon (to show Spotlight) and then type a single character. Just above where Spotlight lists the results, there should be a progress bar showing the progress of the index. Prior to Yosemite, the Spotlight icon would pulse (show a little pulsing dot in the center) and if you clicked to show Spotlight, it would show the progress at the top. After checking this, if you have verified that the indexing DID occur (have to wait and let it finish) then, lets double check a few things. 1. What is the path to the file? 2. Is that path within Alfred's search scope? 3. Does Spotlight show the file in it's results?
  9. With workflows, you can indeed. You would only need to create a workflow that has a Run Script object, set the language to bash, and use facetime:// followed by the persons email address or phone number.
  10. Is Spotlight indexing the drive as well? You could also set OS X to not put the drive to sleep. That setting can be found in Energy Saver preference pane.
  11. I've had El Capitan on a machine since the first beta. Alfred has worked flawlessly on it all the way through. I will say however, GM isn't ALWAYS the last release. That being said, I believe the release date for El Capitan was determined to be next week (based on the little easter egg in the keynote). I'd probably recommend waiting until then to do the install unless you're just really wanting it.
  12. Have you looked in Alfred's Preferences under the Features tab? In the list on the left hand side, select iTunes. All settings (including hotkeys) pertaining to Alfred's Mini Player, would be located there.
  13. This could be accomplished with a File Filter object in a workflow. File Filters allow you to set search scope, the desired file types, and set how the content is searched. To perform a content search (in), in the Advanced tab of a file filter, you would add the kMDItemTextContent field.
  14. Well, what about this... wondering if it would be easier to just convert the output to hex instead. So.. then you could type or paste in the hex values into alfred's calculator and get decimal output, but press to copy that and simply press a hotkey to convert the decimal value in the clipboard to hex. Would that work?
  15. Is this something you perform often? If so, simplest thing may be to just make a quick workflow with a hotkey that will just keep grabbing the selected text and build up a big list, then with another hotkey, or a keyword, put it all together and paste.
  16. +1 on this. I've noticed this several times in the past. I hate it reopening everything after a restart and even though the setting in OSX is there to *NOT* reopen, it'll reboot and open up 20 windows.. Grr
  17. I dont know of one in particular but this should be possible with a workflow at least. Are you looking for simple calculations (add,subtract,multiply,divide) only? Are you looking for only single operation or multiple?
  18. Hey I've been trying to get some more testing done with this but I can go ahead and share the script I have for now which should get the latest Outlook for Mac working for you. Download the script linked here and drop it in this folder: ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Plugins/Email That should get the latest version working. I'm still trying to get it tested to see if that breaks Outlook support in older versions. Let me know if you have any issues with this please
  19. Do you necessarily need to search them or do you just need quick access to the files? I'm just wondering whether or not it is worth adding these to your search scope or having a file filter or if it would just be better to have a workflow that opens the folder for you
  20. I can't seem to replicate this. I've just created a new local user and swapped to it and can use Alfred as expected. Is this a new issue (only started after the update and worked as expected before)?
  21. Alfred uses Spotlight's metadata server for performing queries so, typically, you could add things into the Privacy tab of Spotlight's preferences to make Alfred not get those results. This works for individual files and folders though. This wouldn't provide the ability to hide individual lock files or to hide files based on a pattern.
  22. Are either of you comfortable modifying some applescript to try a fix for this? It's been a weird issue but I think the fix may be simple but I'd like to have someone else try it and see if it resolves their issue.
  23. Sure thing. Try this out: http://cloud.dferg.us/SO9F This will provide you with a new option to "Copy Abbreviated Path"
  24. It doesn't but you could create a Result Action that could do this for you. The result action would accept the full path and you would just need to make it do a search and replace in the string to replace /Users/Mike with ~. Do you know how to do something like this? If not, I could help you or even make it for you if you'd like
  25. If you are familiar with creating/building workflows, a simple alternative also may be to just use external triggers within your workflows. This would allow you to trigger a specific part of a workflow, from another, and even pass it data. These are triggered through AppleScript. You could have a single workflow keyword that executed N number of workflows or specific parts of workflows using AppleScript and their external trigger. I've used this several times to simulate "steps" in a workflow. You use one keyword, when it completes, calls an external trigger and launches the next step, and so on.
