  1. Okay, think I fixed it. Used a VPN from UK and was able to download it. Then I tried VPN with another server in Australia and that worked too. My ISP must have changed some setting that prevents access. Will send them a support ticket. Thanks for the help.
  2. My system has not changed in years. Same ISP same setup. Always been able to update other times. Will try again later.
  3. Was prompted to update to 3.6 but got message 'cannot find update zip' I searched forum and found one answer was to download directly from alfredapp site. Unfortunately this did not work either. "Safari cannot find server cachefly.alfredapp.com"
  4. I know this is an old post but.... Very very nice. I like it. Now I do not have to type long-winded paths to get to the directory I want.
  5. I just updated to 10.12.3 and as thinkfilm mentioned, it works as before. Everthing lines up nicely.
  6. I have the latest release 10.12.2 and it works okay. I will have to wait until 10.12.3 is not in Beta and is released.
  7. I dislike have to manually resize and position Finder windows, so after a little research I came up with this solution This workflow produces two Finder windows side by side, any size any position. Modify the script to suit your needs. Hope someone finds it as useful as I do. http://www.manorts.com/alfred/Dualpane.alfredworkflow
  8. Thank you. Everything still works like a charm and I have the latest version.
  9. After upgrading to version 3 and buying the Powerpack, I noticed I have 3 versions in my Application folder. I have... Alfred 2.app Alfred 3-2.app Alfred 3.app Can I keep Alfred 3 and uninstall the others without causing too much trouble?
  10. Thanks for the workflow Jack. Works really well on Alfred 3.
  11. Did not work for me either at first. Have a look in Alfred's preferences and under 'File Search' there is an Actions button. Click on it. From there you can see the default actions. Take note of the hotkey down the bottom. Mine is "option+command+right arrow" Then from the Alfred search bar, type in a file name and use down arrow to highlight the file you want then use the hotkey to bring up the actions for that file. But there may be an easier way. EDIT: noticed Andrew answered a similar post a couple of days ago. Looks like you press the fn key during a file search to bring up the actions.
  12. That makes it clearer. I thought that when my Trash was empty it was actually empty. That was until last night when I plugged in my external drive. Thanks for education, I really appreciate the time you have taken to explain it. This is a much smaller script that works well. Hope BermudaLamb can use it. Change the +5 to whatever days you want. on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items set files2delete to paragraphs of (do shell script "find " & quoted form of POSIX path of this_folder & " -type f -mtime +5 -delete") end adding folder items to
  13. Now I'm totally confused. If I send files to Trash and I can see these files in the Trash folder, do you mean they are not really there. I honestly don't understand
  14. When you show hidden files, you can see the folder Trash in the users directory. When you right click you can setup Folder Actions on it. I don't think its magic, just hidden.
  15. Because I am a learner, I collect lots of workflows and scripts just to see how things work. Sometimes a gem comes along. I have this little Applescript that I found very useful. Its pretty well documented. I suppose you could use it in Alfred but I do not know how to do it. You have to set up Trash Folder Actions and put the Applescript in your Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts EDIT: I did not write this script and I do not remember who did or where I got it. on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items try -- Set number of days to wait -- Change this to the number of days you want set time_diff to 7 -- Touch all incoming items to update the modified date to now repeat with i from 1 to the number of items in the added_items set a_file to item i of added_items set sh_script to "touch " & quoted form of (POSIX path of a_file) do shell script sh_script end repeat set trash_files to (list folder this_folder without invisibles) -- Set variable "use_date" to the current date to be a little bit more efficient when working with many files set use_date to (current date) - time_diff * days -- Search through the trash and delete files that are there longer than 7 days repeat with i from 1 to the count of trash_files set a_file to alias ((this_folder as text) & (item i of trash_files)) if the (modification date of (info for a_file)) comes before use_date then -- "srm -sf" deletes files in a secure way in "simple mode" use "man srm" if you want different modes set sh_script to "srm -sf " & quoted form of (POSIX path of oldest_file) do shell script sh_script end if end repeat end try end adding folder items to
