  1. I appreciate this isn't the answer you're looking for immediately, but if you were tempted to try the 4.5 beta you'd probably find an interesting example workflow that could be adapted. 😉 Stephen
  2. But the Powerpack appears not to be installed—because if it is you should have a Powerpack icon in your Alfred preferences. If you did buy the Powerpack and installed it try quitting and restarting Alfred. Stephen
  3. Did you buy the Powerpack? You need that in order to use Workflows. Stephen
  4. I wonder if it's possible that in moving back from the beta to the current non-beta version you may have left traces of the beta version on your machine which are now interfering. (I appreciate that does not address your original move/copy problem which apparently occurred on both the current release and beta versions.) Stephen
  5. While I have not had reason to use it, others have recommended the free program shortcut detective to help ascertain whether there is a conflict between shortcuts. It may be able to tell you if some other program is using that shortcut. Stephen Edit: corrected typo.
  6. @Andrew I see what you mean! Very many thanks: brilliant! Stephen
  7. Just in passing, it's always worth trying locking and unlocking again. There seems to be some sort of bug (which I reported to Apple over 18 months ago) which effectively disables text expansion (e.g., in Typinator) sometimes (but not always) when you unlock a MacBook Pro using an Apple Watch. The bug also prevents long press working to produce accented alternatives for a specific key (which is what I reported to Apple in order to avoid the suggestion the problem was limited to some third party app 😉). That resolves if you lock and then unlock with touch ID. Apologies for being a little off-topic. Stephen
  8. I know this isn't exactly the answer you were seeking but I'd use the smart little utility PopClip for that. There is a free trial so you could try it to see if it works for you. (It does a lot more than merely convert html to markdown, of course. I find it invaluable.) Stephen
  9. Do you have a recent backup of your system? It sounds as though it's not merely Alfred that's affected so it might be better to restore the system from a recent backup. In passing, I dislike apps like the one you mention and think they do more harm than good. I'm sorry that you've found that out the hard way and hope you can find some way of recovering what you need. Stephen
  10. I think I might just be happy to await Alfred 4.5. 😀 Stephen
  11. Yes, indeed - I was able to make that work before embarking on the current difficulties. That may, in the end, be the neatest solution. Edit: This is all my fault. I use the Default Finder X Finder drawer and was merely seeing if I could effectively replace it with something in Alfred! Stephen
  12. <Blush> I do hate not being able to work out things for myself but I have to confess the offer is rather appreciated (but not urgent - so merely when you have a moment!). I have no problem setting the hot key and getting Finder selected files into the buffer but have not yet discovered how I can use the Action in Alfred utility to automatically then display the Alfred action pane. I think I may be in a little out of my depth, sorry! Stephen
  13. Thank you to both of you. I've spent a lot of time the past few days trying to improve my knowledge and use of Alfred (which I've used for years) so apologise for missing the fact the buffer (without a little work) does not work directly in Finder. Stephen
  14. Briefly, I'm unable to use the file buffer functions in Finder. I am using Alfred 4.3.4 on my 16" (Intel) MacBook Pro running macOS 11.3.1. I have enabled the temporary file buffer and have checked "Use ⇧⌥ as modifier key". In case it's relevant I'll mention that I've set the selection key for file actions in macOS to ⌃⌘\. I have checked Alfred's permissions and all are enabled in system preferences. (I have also tried disabling and re-enabling Finder automation and full disk access for Alfred.) Although I'm able to display the file actions panel in both Alfred and Finder the buffer commands in Finder do nothing at all and I'm rather at a loss as to what to try next. Stephen
  15. Many thanks for the response. I did as you suggested and both I and Alfred are very happy again. "Lock" now works. Stephen
