  1. Although on second thought changelog is useful. And I can automate the clicks.
  2. Instead of having to open Alfred Preferences & going to Update and then going to click update button. It would be great if there was update keyword users can type when Alfred has a pending update. This would save quite a bit of time. Thank you.
  3. Got this issue on my workflow. I am not on v10.15 but users of my workflows and I suppose others too will get this prompt on calling an external trigger or keyword. What should they do to get around it? I found this issue online when googling for error. Is there anything @Andrew and Alfred can do to remove this friction?
  4. You have a point although there are very few people who like me consume workflows via external triggers. Most people do it via keywords and hotkeys. So I don't think adding such a global setting would cause trouble as most wouldn't even notice its effects on daily Alfred operation.
  5. I really dislike how the Placeholder title appears when you call workflows via external trigger. Often it appears briefly only to disappear when actual results come in. This is quite annoying so what I do now is add a JSON Config object with this content: { "alfredworkflow" : { "arg" : "{query}", "config" : { "title" : "", "runningsubtext" : "", "subtext" : "" }, "variables" : { } } } To make sure the placeholder doesn't appear and I get a clean prompt on my workflows that I call with external trigger. I really wish there was a global setting in Alfred that would apply above filter on external triggers so I didn't have to add and readd it on all workflows I use (all updates to other people's workflows will remove my custom objects). I really do enjoy having clean prompts and the icon is enough indication for me to know what the workflow does like below for searching PDFs: I hope such option can be added to Alfred. 🧡
  6. Even nicer although not necessary would be if you could create both folders and files if multiple separator paths are provided. Like so: Where test is a directory and myfile.csv is the file.
  7. If you are in file explorer and are typing a name that has no matches. It would be great if you could press return or cmd+return to create a new file with default text editor. So if inside here: I do: And press return. Alfred would create that file at that path and open it in my editor (VSCode for me) so I can fill it with content. I know I can create a file action on a folder to create a file but the above scenario would be more useful to me in terms of UX. Hope this can be added.
  8. It would be nice if I could press right arrow here: To see file contents of the workflow like: Of course it would have to only work on workflows and not triggers/lists and other results that ? search provides. Would be super useful. It would also be really awesome if one could add modifiers to the search as I would like to with a modifier press also export the workflow to my Desktop for sharing. Like I do with this workflow. Perhaps what would be easier is exposing this search to users so users can build workflows on top of the results provided by ?. Like adding fuzzy search too and the like?
  9. ? keyword lets you effectively search Alfred. However it does strict search so you are forced to start search query with how the actual workflow name starts. No fuzzy searching is supported. It would be awesome if ability to fuzzy search through results was added. Thank you.
  10. Does the release also include ability to activate fields in Contacts via modifier key presses? So in here: I could add cmd/opt/.. modifiers that on result instead of opening Contact in Alfred, would instantly open URL from `twitter` or `github` in default browser. Would be handy too.
  11. @Andrew Is there any chance to add this in Alfred 4? Or it can be added only in next major version of 5?
  12. I love the new `?` keyword search added with Alfred 4. If I want to bind it to a hotkey or external trigger however like so: I have to pass in `?` to Alfred. But the result looks ugly with the question mark and the Alfred Preferences: I would really love if I could just have Alfred Preferences Search as an object which I can call and thus lose the `?` in the Alfred prompt. Thank you.
  13. Since Alfred already logs number of times Alfred has been called. If it doesn't hurt performance or anything, it would be nice if it also logged what workflows were called during the use and present that information. Aside from pretty stats, it could show which workflows in user's library are not used so one can clean things up.
  14. It is. Should I open a feature request for clean empty external prompt?
  15. I find Safari more performant than chrome in my experience. Tabs open faster, content renders faster even sometimes. I only chrome canary for webdev so might be wrong. In any way I can’t imagine using chrome as main browser if you also use ios devices. Chrome on ios is bad.
  16. Actually I take that back. Shouldn't this not be there: I think that was the point of the change. Now it activates but that empty thing shouldn't be there. Only Alfred input prompt.
  17. Source. I think it's a big deal and would probably mean saying no to running any python/ruby based workflows (of which there's a few) unless they bundle a runtime with them or point to assumed python installation (in path) I guess. I don't much use these languages and write all my workflows in Go (with AwGo) to get around this problem.
