Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. Oops Thanks for pointing that out. I fixed it now. And yes, I didn't choose to parse any key into "0" because the zero key is already right by the nine key, which the user's hand would already be sitting by. What key would you propose to parse into "0"?
  2. You're right, it is. I guess I underestimated how much traffic/moderation this forum gets. I just had the time to type/set up the rest of the page before, since doing that saved me some time later on when I was actually able to add in my workflow (or at the least the link to it). It's on there now though. Thanks for checking it btw. It's quick responders like you that keep these forums alive and useful.
  3. Yeah it was. You're too quick! I'm going to post the actual workflow in a few hours when I'm actually by my personal computer.
  4. Hi everyone, I love using the compact wireless Apple keyboard that comes standard with every iMac now. The issue is that occasionally, I like to able to use a number pad (ten key), which those don't have, and I don't want to have to switch back to a full size keyboard to fill that occasional need. So I created this Alfred Workflow that turns the u, i, o, j, k, and l keys into a virtual number pad temporarily, so that you can use it to type in a credit card number, or something like that. Here's how it works: Type in np in Alfred and then press space Type your number using the 7, 8, 9, u, i, o, j, k, and l keys. Feel free to use hyphens or any other characters besides those keys, as those won't be converted into numbers. Alfred will give you a preview of what your converted output will be in the space below where you're typing. Press Enter/Return to paste the output of what you've typed into the app that is currently in focus (if you would prefer for the script to just copy to the clipboard without automatically pasting, you can uncheck the appropriate box in the "Copy to Clipboard" module in the workflow). You can download it from this page on Packal's site. Let me know if you have any questions or experience problems with this. Hope you like using this!
  5. Just wanted to let everyone know (if they haven't already figured it out) that this workflow doesn't work currently due to SIP (System Integrity Protection). Among other things, It actually says in Apple's Official page on it that "System Integrity Protection also helps prevent software from selecting a startup disk". To disable SIP, and therefore make this workflow function correctly again, you would have to disable SIP. There's a guide on how to do that here, but here aware that doing so will lower your system's security.
