  1. The issue it doesn't work I suppose is because, I very often have cmd + enter binded to do a certain task in pretty much every application I have. I have it binded with BetterTouchTool, here is an example : "http://i.imgur.com/6v7pU8R.png" The issue with that though is that when I press cmd + enter whist doing Alfred search, it doesn't actually do the action of 'Reveal File in Finder' and it is quite unfortunate as I then am forced to use my mouse / trackpad to click on the entry. Is there some way I can bypass this issue? I hope you can understand what I mean and perhaps someone else had this issue too. Thank you a lot for any help.
  2. How can one change the sound that EggTimer makes when it is done? Thank you for such a great workflow.
  3. I also have a question, is it possible to make it so that as I am making a search, if I press tab instead of it entering a space like it does now, it would actually autocomplete the top autosuggested result. So if I press tab here, it would autocomplete this result : http://i.imgur.com/dCh9ZSB.png Right now if I press a tab there, it would just make a space like so : http://i.imgur.com/z5Adbyp.png
  4. There is a really neat workflow that does quite a handful of searches with autosuggestions (http://www.packal.org/workflow/searchio) and I am wondering if it would be possible to add Quora to that list.
  5. Perhaps it doesn't register everything when the calls are made in quick succession such as what I think happens when developing alfred workflows. I use Alfred many times through out the day, all my google, youtube, images searches come from Alfred thanks to the workflow you made. It really is quite ingenious and I really love how fast autosuggestions for it are. Would be actually really neat to see percentage wise all the workflows that a user have used, perhaps it can be added in V3 version of the app if of course collecting this data won't interfere with the performance of the app. I see you also have some Alfred Remote triggers in there. Can I ask what you are using it for? I really think Alfred Remote or BetterTouchTool for iOS can do some really cool things but I really can't find any use cases for it except maybe controlling media playback.
  6. I am curious how do you use remote and what for? I tried setting some things up but I just didn't find a good use for it yet.
  7. Hey is it possible to optimise a selected image with a hotkey? Let's say an image is selected in finder or on desktop, I press the hotkey and it optimises the image. For me that would be incredible. I hope such a thing would be possible to do. I tried doing something like this : http://i.imgur.com/Y4leiVv.png But that didn't work which I guess is expected.
  8. I use Alfred quite often now and I am really curious to see other people's usage statistics. Here is mine : http://i.imgur.com/wuyKwvG.png
  9. I use BetterTouchTool to open most of top used apps with a hotkey and I was wondering if I can somehow open up Alfred Preferences with a hotkey. I open it up quite often and it will save quite a lot of time. If anyone knows a way to do it, that would be incredible. Thank you.
  10. Thank you for your answer, Vero. This is indeed what I want. However is there a way to remove the word 'define' in my searches? I really dislike it being there and I just want to focus on the query I will be typing. A few other applications do this when you access their searches with a hotkey. Is there a way to do it here too? Here is an example from the 'Dash' workflow : http://i.imgur.com/8UuONTX.png
  11. I want to use the 'Define a Word' action from Alfred but be able to open it up and use by pressing a hotkey rather then opening Alfred and then typing my 'd' command. Here is what I mean (http://i.imgur.com/LaYWfrK.png). I basically want to bypass typing in the 'd' in my Alfred window because I often use the dictionary and this will save me a lot of time. Is this possible to do? If so, I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.
  12. Wow thank you. This is exactly what I wanted. The reason it may sound odd at first is that I want to then bind that hotkey to a gesture with BetterTouchTool. This really works out great for me. I really want to thank you for putting the time in helping me with this this. It is very kind of you. This is exactly what I wanted (https://imgur.com/a/IdTVO). I will take a hard look into Bash Academy so I won't ask silly questions in the future. ♥
  13. Thank you for your answer Vitor, I don't really quite get why this requires so much stuff. I kind of thought that this would work (https://imgur.com/a/0LPU3). As essentially, what I think it will do, is allows me to type my query and then throw it into the web search replacing the {query} there with mine. However that did not work. Also the code you produced with 'tell active tab of front window to se the URL' wouldn't quite work in my case as I want it to be global. Essentially I just want what Deanishe has done (http://www.packal.org/workflow/searchio) but without the autosuggest. However I tried looking at his workflow and I have no idea how he has done it as it just says (https://imgur.com/a/IBScs). I really want to get into creating my own scripts for Alfred but right now I get so confused. I would of thought creating a simple web search by query would of been rather easy but it turns out it is not or perhaps I am just missing some things. Thank you for your help again Vitor, I use your workflows quite often, most recently started using Webscreenshot so thank you for that.
  14. I searched on the internet and tried myself and I could not find how to do it. What I essentially want is just to be able to enter a hotkey and be presented with a web search on that site where I can type my query. I thought it would be rather easy to do it and perhaps there would even be a preset made for something like this but for some reason it doesn't work. (ie if I do this (http://i.imgur.com/CMa3SPe.png)) it goes directly to the website and doesn't let me to actually type my desired query in the window. What can I do to fix this? Thank you for any help.
  15. Can someone help with this. I tried doing what was said above but it still opens everything in Terminal. How can I make it work? Here is a screencast of me trying to set it up : http://quick.as/b04as8aep If anyone knows a way to fix this, that would be incredible. Thank you for any help.
  16. Everything is working now. Thank you for the workflow ♥
  17. Can someone help me create a workflow for Angelist search by query? I tried making it but it does not show a 'query' with my search result. ie http://i.imgur.com/LHzKXZE.png Is there a way to overcome it somehow or you just cannot do an alfred search on it? Thank you for any help you can provide.
  18. Can anyone help me understand why my commands within the workflow do not register. What should I do to fix this? Here is a video to show : http://quick.as/ZVymHYBbd I believe I have used the previous version of toggl long before and it is still saved into my account but it does not work for some reason. Thank you for any help.
