    Shortcut for launching app in Alfred 3?

    Thank you! Exactly what I was looking for.
  2. I've been using an app called Spark to launch applications using the Fn keys. I recently got a new Macbook Pro which doesn't have Fn keys, or at least not solid keys (I have the TouchBar version). Since I'm now using Alfred for this kind of thing, I'd like to configure it to launch some of my most commonly used applications using keystrokes, such as "control-z" or "control-a". How do I do that?
  3. Thanks. Will give that a shot.
  4. Anyone? Would appreciate help with this. Thanks!
  5. I need to reinstall El Capitan on my iMac (primary Alfred computer). It is currently syncing Alfred settings to Dropbox, but once I do a fresh install of OS X, the "primary" computer that Alfred was installed on will no longer exist. After I reinstall Alfred on the fresh copy of OS X, how do I import/restore settings/snippets, and how do I assign it as the "primary" install of Alfred?
  6. When I type a snippet, and the text expands, it plays a system sound. Is there a way to turn this off?
  7. I just switched from Launchbar to Alfred, and am loving it! One question: in Launchbar, when I typed "AirDrop", it would show up in the list, and I could quickly open the AirDrop window. When I do that in Alfred, it doesn't show up. How can I fix that?
  8. Wait! I figured it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
  9. I tried to figure this out, using the "paste text clip from hotkey" template in the Workflows pane, but I wasn't able to. If you can help that would be great.
  10. I frequently do research where I look up the references at the end of a scientific paper. The steps involved are as follows: Select the name of the paper in the PDF on my computer, and copy to clipboard Invoke Alfred Use the keyword "Google" to trigger a Google search, followed by typing spacebar Paste the copied text into Alfred Hit return This isn't all that laborious, but I'd love to create a workflow where I could just invoke a keystroke after #1 above and have steps 2-5 done automatically. I've never created a workflow before and I'm not particularly tech savvy. I'd appreciate your help with setting this up. Thanks!
