I know there was some discussion two years ago about Alfred losing focus when switching to an active window or app, and understand the concerns. But since I've been using Alfred over many years, it's been the one issue that has made Alfred more of an issue at times than it needs be. For example, if I'm running a calculation in Alfred but do not hit Return, switch to another window to grab data to add to the formula, and return to Alfred, the contents are empty. What I'd prefer is something like this:
Start an equation (eg, 23*.03) but do not hit Return or Enter
Switch to another app to select another number to add
Switch back to Alfred: the equation in progress remains
Any reason this could or should not be doable?
