  1. Amazing, thank you. This was exactly what I was after. I think you saved me an afternoon of pointless experimentation!
  2. Hi all, Long time Alfred user here, wondering if this new Slapdash app I saw mentioned on Macrumors can do anything Alfred can't. It looks really interesting since I work with cloud apps. Their devs seem to suggest it has unique features, but I can't tell. Anyone have any clue? https://slapdash.com Thanks
  3. Never mind, I got the admin to upgrade me to lightning. Mostly because I like this workflow so much. Thanks!
  4. Thank you for bringing this back! Super great workflow. I get an error message when I use it. Is it only compatible with Lightning? "Lightning Experience is enabled for your organization, but not yet for you. Want to give it a try? Ask your Salesforce admin."
  5. I'm looking to make a workflow that would take convert a path name from windows to mac. Windows-using work colleagues often send me the full path name for docs in Google Drive File Stream, but they don't work because a) Mac has a different way of naming volumes in paths and b) the back slashes need to become forward slashes to work correctly. Anyone know if something that could convert at least the slash direction easily? Thanks all
  6. Hi there, I've tried to enable this a few times with no luck. I tried to move my preferences folder to my HD rather than iCloud but no luck. Can anyone advise on how to set the variables? I think maybe I am writing the wrong path for the snippets folder...
  7. Hi! I think this workflow broke in Catalina. Anyone else have this problem?
  8. Thanks so much for making this. As a non-programmer, I need a little guidance on how to set the prefsPath's correctly. I'm assuming this refers to the text next to the prefsPath/prefsFolder bit of the python script. I believe I should set these to the Alfred snippets folder and the subfolder in that folder the snippets should be categorized under, is that right? I keep my snippets in iCloud Drive, I looked up how to write out the path for that but got a little confused - finder treats iCloud Drive as the root, but I'm guessing it really isn't...
  9. Wow, thanks so much for making this!! Just what I was looking for, and greatly helpful. Thanks!
  10. I love snippets, I just wish it was easier to add and edit them. There's something about navigating the Alfred UI that puts me off making new snippets that means I don't do it as often as I wish I did. It feels like there could be a workflow that would allow you to type something like "{snip} text text text text {name:txt}". If this isn't possible with Alfred, does anyone know of another app? Like maybe a quick add snippet from the Services menu or something?
  11. Hell yeah, this is what I've been looking for forever. Thanks for making this @sballin!!
  12. Wow sounds like a perfect solution. Do you have a solution for sharing a file with just selected other people? I guess syncing certain files with a dropbox shared folder?
  13. Thanks, I came across that thread in my searches. It highlights the fact that Alfred has perfect workflows, but the nature of the beast means that it's always a temporary solution that could break any time.
  14. Hi all, Based on my research, it seems like there was a good Alfred workflow that allowed to search and open notes that broke in 10.11. I've started using Notes as permanent storage for project notes (used to just be an inbox I would empty), and so I'd like to be able to quickly search through to find what I need. If it's impossible I'm going to look into switching to Bear (which I know has a workflow) or Agenda. How are people currently handling their notes with Alfred? Thanks all!
  15. Hey, The solution nkloster shared tends to work temporarily and then stops working after a bit. Having said that, it has been working pretty unfailingly in the last few weeks for me.
