  1. I have a very close to this thread question. I want to be able to search a specific website with the help of google. This workflow different steps would be: 1°) Copying the current website url to the clipboard ({clipboard}) 2°) Launching Alfred bar, 3°) Typing the workflow keyword and my query ({query}) 4°) Hit Enter. My problem is I do not know how to make Alfred use two variables (the clipboard and the query variables). Is there a way I can create a url like this https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3A{clipboard}+{query} ? So google could perform a search with the variable {query} on the {clipboard} website.
  2. I just hit the moment "when you realize you ran out of very easily accessible keyboard shortcuts and you which Alfred would let you create some more". There are many reasons why I would love to have more keyboard shortcuts: - More choice is most of the time better. Sometimes, for no special real reason, a user find it easier to use the right Alt key than the left Alt key. - I sat a LOT of keyboard shortcuts for launching websites. Plus, I sat a lot of web searches. Now, I want to be able to trigger all these web searches via a keyboard shortcut. In other words, select some text, hit a keyboard shortcut and see the right website appears with the result of my query. Is it possible for Alfred to differentiate left and right modifier keys?
  3. I use a Google Chrome/Brave extension called text copy that allows me to copy huge chunks of text. Sometimes, they are to big to be displayed in Alfred clipboard. For example: One solution would be to display the clipboard entry via a Large type (cmd+Y) just like in the Alfred's bar. One other solution would be to be able to scroll the content via the mouse/trackpad or arrow keys. @Andrew What do you think?
  4. @vitor Thanks for this wonderful workflow! Probably the one I use the most! I was wondering if you had the intention of adding an exclusion list? I have my Keyboard Maestro settings file in this folder and as it updates almost every day it appears at the top of the results. Of course, I could and certainly will move this file somewhere else. But still wanted to ask you this question as I suspect other interesting use cases for this feature 😀
  5. Why is that? That would let me have more possibilities to choose a keyword from 😀 Just look for such thread as I tried to set a keyword with only capital letters... that Alfred was always saving as lower case letter. Why was I trying it ? Because I wanted to not have a conflict with one of my TextExpander snippet. TextExpander snippet was renamed, potential conflict killed. 👍
  6. Thanks @deanishe But given my current programming skills, I prefer to add this in my workflows idea list. Message to anyone: feel free to steal the idea and develop the workflow 😀
  7. @GuiB Thanks a lot. Very helpful. I feel this is the kind of workflow not very complicated I will fill a lot of use cases for 😀
  8. Yes. Sorry for the duplicate. Didn't experienced anything bad with "copy to" as I didn't try this file action.
  9. I wanted to move a file from my ~/Downloads/ folder to one of my ~/Dropbox/ folder using the Alfred action "Move to...". After the file was selected, "Move to" action was selected, I typed "Dropbox". The results I got were not satisfying as I only got three and none of them were the ~/Dropbox/ folder. I then decided to add ~/ before "Drobpbox". At that very moment Alfred started to use 60% of my Mac CPU. The only solution was to restart Alfred via the Activity Monitor. Experienced it three times. Had no problem of CPU, when instead of typing "Dropbox" then "~/", I typed /Users/UserName/Dropbox/ Or when I navigated between the folders with the left and right arrows.

  10. Yes, I did I even tried the workflows. The output will then contain the list of variables you've just created I do not know how to work with the variables I get from the split action. Here is what I get from the debug : [20:32:39.148] Multiple queries at once[Keyword] Processing complete [20:32:39.149] Multiple queries at once[Keyword] Passing output 'google,yahoo,bing' to Split Arg to Vars [20:32:39.149] Multiple queries at once[Split Arg to Vars] Processing complete [20:32:39.150] Multiple queries at once[Split Arg to Vars] Passing output 'google,yahoo,bing' to Debug [20:32:39.151] Multiple queries at once[Debug] 'google,yahoo,bing', { var1 = "google" var2 = "yahoo" var3 = "bing" } [20:32:39.151] Multiple queries at once[Debug] Processing complete [20:32:39.152] Multiple queries at once[Debug] Passing output 'google,yahoo,bing' to Open URL
  11. Thanks @deanishe That makes sense. I do not understand how I can "add" my input to the URL. Here is my workflow : https://ufile.io/7ixxc19t (file will be deleted in 30 days).
  12. (As I am not sure if it is already possible, I post this thread here and not in Alfred features suggestions). I was thinking about web searches found cool how easy it is to create them. One url + {query}. Done. I was wondering if it was possible to perform multiple queries at once. For example typing the following in Alfred's bar: one web searches keyword + {query1}+{query2}+{query3}. with the alexa.com web search I sat it would give : sale keyboardmaestro.com,alfredapp.com,google.com It would open 3 tabs with the result of each query. Maybe there are other way to do it. I am just trying to find a way not to have to perform the same task three times.
  13. Thanks. Your answer on Keyboard Maestro forum led me to the nice macros to build workflows faster 👍
