Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. OK. I thought there might be an adaptable workflow rather than go the AppleScript route.
  2. Sorry to prolong this but having got the DropBox window to display I'm looking at what displays. Basically I want the window to display files by date with the latest one at the top. Not sure if this can be done with Alfred commands but if it is I've not managed to do it. I've tried searching thorough the forum for a basic workflow that will do this and which I can modify and build on. Can anyone point me to one?
  3. Been looking through the script commands and tried it slightly differently : tell application "Finder" set myWindow to make Finder window to folder "Macintosh HD:Users:Chris:Dropbox" open folder "Macintosh HD:Users:Chris:Dropbox" activate myWindow end tell Yours is much simpler and neater though Just one point. After the trigger command the Alfred window still has the workflow appended underneath, similar to the screen shot in my original post. Hitting 'enter' brings up the DropBox window. Is this the standard behaviour? It looks as though it is but I want to be sure in case I'm missing something for future use. Been using your workflow and so far it always does bring the window to the front once I've hit 'enter'. Interesting stuff. Thanks for the help.
  4. Thanks for the reply. Tried it with the abbreviated code which was fine, but I'm not sure how to use Applescript force the open DBox window to the front. Might check later just for the info. Having spent time faffing with the Applescript version I downloaded your Workflow modified to fit my naming and it works fine so thanks very much. One question does this workflow always bring the selected window- this case DropBox - to the front? Not seemed to be a problem so far. Incidentally when I tried using commands for screen shots the Alfred window kept vanishing so I finished up using my camera..... Just rechecked and i was using the wrong commands Something else I've learned today. Thanks again - no doubt I'll be back from time to time as I get to grips with Alfred.
  5. I'm new to Alfred and am just trying my first workflow. Basically this is use key command 'dx' to open my DropBox folder. The script is: on alfred_script(q) tell application "Finder" set myWindow to make Finder window to folder "Macintosh HD:Users:ME:Dropbox" set current view of myWindow to list view set the sort column of the list view options of myWindow to the name column activate end tell end alfred_script If i run the compiled Apple script via Script editor it works fine but used with Alfred it produces the following: Click on the window and the DropBox folder opens but not directly from the Alfred command. Where am I going wrong?
  6. I'm a new user to Alfred and think it's brilliant!. Can't find this requested before, but would it be possible to put Alfred prefs sync in a DropBox sub-folder - purely to follow my established pattern for app data. So far it seems only possible to do it at the top level of Dropbox folders. EG: ~/Dropbox/Apps/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences rather than: ~/Dropbox/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences
