I'm coming over from Launchbar (it's been giving me problems lately - figured it was time to check out Alfred) but one thing I do like about the clipboard history in LB is that the hotkey for it is ONLY active once you've already got the input window visible. So, in LB I do cmd-space to launch and then cmd-k to show the clipboard history.
The reason I like this is that it allows me to use simple hotkeys that would otherwise conflict with other software packages.
Make no mistake, having global hotkey support is great too, but there's times when I just want Alfred to behave like other apps and only recognize hotkeys when it has 'focus'.
Is this possible and I'm just missing something?
