  1. Here are the results of a translation of the word "food" from English to German. In short, the workflow is fired via the keyword "dl". You then type what you want to translate + ".', hit enter and wait for the translations to appear. I would like to be able to add "Essen", "Lebensmittel", "Nahrung", "Narhungsmittel" to Alfred's buffer (to copy them to the clipboard) the same way I can add files to the buffer using a modifier key. Now, if I want to add these four results to the clipboard, I need to perform four queries.
  2. I would like to be able to hide Alfred fallback searches so it does not confuse the user with the results of a workflow query. First example: DeepL-Translate (results of the translation of the word "food" from EN to DE). Readability is not optimal. Second example : A workflow by Tyler Eich that displays applications, operating system versions. No fallback search is displayed. Better readability according to me πŸ˜€
  3. Ok. Got it. (I tried but didn't find a way to search by keyword this morning because I had the great idea to create a workflow with a ? as a keyword... Stupid me.) In order no other user waste his time, the right way to search Web searches by keyword is "?NameOfTheKeyword". No space needed between ? and the keyword.
  4. Are web searches searchable. Doesn't look like they are. πŸ˜” Would be super useful when want to check the keyword of one web search.
  5. My use case is I want to append English words I find on the Internet and their definitions to a .csv file. In practice, it would mean: - copying the word in the clipboard - copying and merging it with its definition - append word and its definition to a .csv file - import this file in quizlet (a flashcard application) The problem I have is quizlet forces me to use commas as a delimiter so it recognize what is the word and what is the definition. Plus, so many times words and definitions are made of more than one word. So +1000 to @vitor answer.
  6. All is working like a charm. One more feature I will use every day ! Any other hidden gems ? πŸ˜€
  7. When I type "?features" in Alfred Search Bar and hit enter Alfred Preferences is launched. But I can't search any query as "Features" disappears as I type an argument.
  8. Love the new search in Preferences. But would love to be able to search Alfred Preferences from Alfred search bar.
  9. Hi godbout, Just installed the latest version of the workflow from Github and returned the following error: Starting debug for 'KAT' [2019-04-01 13:58:19][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'f' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fi' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fig' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'figh' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight ' [2019-04-01 13:58:20][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight c' [2019-04-01 13:58:21][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight cl' [2019-04-01 13:58:21][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight clu' [2019-04-01 13:58:21][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight cluv' [2019-04-01 13:58:22][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight clu' [2019-04-01 13:58:22][input.scriptfilter] Queuing argument 'fight club' [2019-04-01 13:58:23][input.scriptfilter] Script with argument 'fight club' finished [2019-04-01 13:58:23][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] Code 255: Parse error: parse error in /Users/folders/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.E00BBE73-F9AC-40E2-8F06-D6687E55C608/src/Workflow.php on line 22 [2019-04-01 13:58:23][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] JSON error: JSON text did not start with array or object and option to allow fragments not set. in JSON: Parse error: parse error in /Users/folders/Alfred.alfredpreferences/workflows/user.workflow.E00BBE73-F9AC-40E2-8F06-D6687E55C608/src/Workflow.php on line 22
  10. Tried to use the workflow again, as all the other "new folder" workflows I tried were not working, and got this error: Starting debug for 'Folders New Folder' [2019-03-05 01:22:06][input.keyword] Processing output of 'action.script' with arg '' [2019-03-05 01:22:06][action.script] Processing output of 'action.script' with arg '' [2019-03-05 01:22:07][ERROR: action.script] 31:39: syntax error: A β€œ"” can’t go after this identifier.

  11. @AndrewThanks for your fast answer ! This is what my script looks like. /usr/local/bin/shuf shuf -n 1 ~/Downloads/One_Liner_Harvey.txt And it still doesn't work. I just do not understand how to use this object.
  12. I am trying to create a workflow that would display a random line from a .txt file. In other other words, use the shuf command to pick a line and display it with a "Large type" object. My problem is I can't find a way to run the command "shuf -n 1 ~/Downloads/NameOfMyFile.txt". I tried to use a "Run script object" wit no luck. Here is the link to the workflow https://www.dropbox.com/s/0io9515ijeepixt/00_One_Line_Picker.alfredworkflow?dl=0 Thank you.
