  1. Does anyone use Windows in addition to your Mac? If so, what do you use instead of Alfred? I'm aware there are a few possibilities, like Wox or Executor, but I don't have experience with any of them.
  2. You'd need additional software like Karabiner, creating custom keyboard mappings. For example, you could re-map the right option key to option+space.
  3. They work ok (as intended), but I'd like to have the Alfred window pop up on all my screens. So regardless where I have my focus it'll be right in front of me - as Alfred is never opened without intending immediate focus. One of those 'would be nice' things, not one of the 'this is life and death' things.
  4. I'd like an option that shows Alfred on all monitors. Most of the time this isn't all that relevant, but when I'm doing research and writing about it at the same time I often look at one screen with e.g. pdf's while my text editor monitor is the active one. So when I toggle Alfred I have to turn my head or activate the pdf reader first. A grave problem comparable to global warming or famine imho.
  5. I'm trying to extend this workflow to change the wallpaper with it. Does anyone know how to apply the new desktop picture to all spaces? Atm my script looks like set theQuery to argv set thePath to "~/Dropbox/Pictures/" & theQuery & ".png" tell application "System Events" tell every desktop set picture to POSIX file thePath end tell end tell do shell script "killall Dock" end run
  6. I use this one to change default browser, there is also a cli tool "defaultbrowser", so it's possible to use something like Hammerspoon to react to system events (like on AC or not) and call it. In addition, I have a small workflow if I want to keep all my tabs - https://www.dropbox.com/s/w14q8t4vk6utvpu/Switch Browser.alfredworkflow?dl=0 . It just takes all tabs from Vivaldi and opens them in Safari or vice versa
  7. I rarely use Safari when I have power, but always on battery. Pinboard, especially with an Alfred workflow, is a smooth way to have bookmarks independent of your browser. I assume there are other solutions, but habit and so on.
  8. I've used one key trigger before, albeit through a third-party like Karabiner. Didn't like it and changed back, but it's doable. Perhaps not as easy as you describe with the abbreviations, but it's also possible to make a workflow and give it an unusual trigger that ensures it'll always match. For example with ",f" as a keyword to open finder, my Alfred would never select anything else since , eliminates all other options.
  9. If anyone is using Vivaldi, there was a simple fix in browser_tabs.rb line 20. module BrowserTabs class << self def supported_browsers @supported_browsers ||= [ 'Safari', 'WebKit', 'Google Chrome', 'Google Chrome Canary', 'Chromium', 'Vivaldi' # I simply added this line ]
  10. Thanks, but not that important for me now that I can search my notes-folder with a hotkey. Good to know as a reference point if I have similar issues in the future though
  11. Cheers guys, mdls was a great tip. Gave me "com.unknown.md", which if added picks up .md files. It still says it's a markdown file though, kMDItemKind = "Markdown". Doesn't matter much anyways, now that it works.
  12. I make a file filter, set a scope and drag a .md file into the file type part of the basic setup. But it doesn't find any markdown files. However, if I change the extension to .markdown it works. It also works to change the extension to mdtxt or mdown Just to be sure, I added a different filetype .taskpaper to check that I didn't bungle something easy - and that showed up just fine. It gets the name "net.ia.markdown" in the File Types. I tried a cheeky adding of an object called "net.ia.md" to no avail. Now I could rename all my markdown files from .md to .markdown, but I don't want to.
  13. Is it possible to add support for the browser Vivaldi? I wasn't able to decompile using osadecompile, so can't try to fix it myself
  14. This is a pretty nice workflow, I like it
  15. Looks nice, I'll use this at least
  16. Add to playlist stopped working for me recently, just doesn't appear as an option anymore. In addition, "refresh library" seems to hang. It's been stuck on 22/85 playlists processed for a long time know. Debugger doesn't give me any info, and I've tried deleting and reinstalling the workflow
  17. Works fine for me after I downloaded the development version, I'm a fan of Numi already - so a nice addition
  18. No I hadn't, but it seems to fix the problem. Just installed a random app with cask and it worked just fine. Thanks @deanishe
  19. This has stopped working for me recently, after working just fine for a long time. The debugger doesn't really produce much, but Alfred 3 stops responding when I try e.g. Cask Install Firefox. Edit: I updated this workflow recently, which may be the reason for the problems.
  20. As in the title, I'd like the ability to change the hotkeys for working with multiple file selections. Currently it's locked to opt+arrows or shift+opt+arrows. Not that big of a deal though, probably a low priority request.
  21. I have a RottenTomato action in it, but it doesn't show any score in the workflow. Actioning it is just a search on the rottentomato website I'm in Europe. Tried with a VPN to USA which worked exactly the same.
  22. Doesn't work on Vivaldi (the browser). Not that the previous one did either. Besides that, it looks good. A very handy idea.
  23. What about this workflow is problematic on El Capitan? I tried it, and it seems to work for most apps (Spotify the only window that didn't show up in the list). It is indeed much faster than the one I've been using.
  24. Thanks, I actually discovered this the other day when someone else published another workflow doing the same thing. This "m" was just the first google-result. Anyways, I sadly think I wasted your time here. The bug is not in the Workflow, the same problem persist from the command line. Both with m and with airport. Sometimes it just won't scan. It could be my machine, not sure. It just didn't cross my mind that I didn't write the error, lesson learned. On the upside, it is easy to work-around I think - by making the WF re-scan if the result and cache are empty. I'll probably publish it, but I want to make it work with KeyChain first.
