  1. @cdispoto If you open Alfred's Preferences to the help tab, then select troubleshooting, and run the file search troubleshooting, this should give a bit more info as to why a file or app can't be found in Alfred. Post the output from a failed run here and I'll take a look Cheers, Andrew
  2. @chris have you considered creating a workflow of multiple Keyword Input -> Open URL Action object pairs instead of using the Custom Web Search feature? This is essentially what built-in custom web searches are doing under the hood. If you set a bundle id on the workflow, then sharing a new version of your workflow with added or altered urls will update the currently installed workflow and also maintain any keywords people have altered within the workflow. Using this method will also retain the image you've set for the custom searches. Side note: In the O
  3. @Iskers if you use the open keyword, are they found? If not, I'm guessing they may be outside of Alfred's search scope. In Alfred 4, there is a File Search troubleshooter in Alfred's Help tab which should diagnose why these files aren't being found. Cheers, Andrew
  4. @Moira sorry for the delay in response here, pop an email to our info@ address and I'll give you a tool to download to migrate your v2 snippets into v4 Cheers, Andrew
  5. This is an interesting clue, are you sure the files in that /Sync/ path in your home folder are even local on your drive? Is Alfred working fine for files outside this folder, for example, if you copy the file which can't be found onto the desktop, is it found as expected? If it is, drag that file into Alfred's troubleshooting for a comparison of what a correctly indexed file looks like. Cheers, Andrew
  6. @jafish Alfred 4 has a built in file troubleshooting helper, if you could drag one of the files which isn't found into the Help > Troubleshooting > File Search Troubleshooting > Run Troubleshooting, then it should give you more info as to why it's not being found. Cheers, Andrew
  7. @Robsa Are you using Alfred 4 directly from our website?
  8. I've already reported this to Apple with a super simple non-Alfred based reproducible Xcode project. It's a Big Sur Beta 6 specific issue.
  9. @nikivi have you changed the scaling on your MacBook away from "Default for Display?" https://osxdaily.com/2016/05/23/increase-system-text-size-mac-os-x-scaled-resolution/
  10. @politicus you could easily achieve this in a workflow too, with something similar to this: Workflow example here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/baoaufr4o2kqiv6/Launch Terminal.alfredworkflow?dl=0
  11. This is something I'm aware of, and is down to a change in Big Sur which may no longer support this. I'm investigating alternatives.
  12. @nathanntg I haven't been able to reproduce this on Beta 6 - could you please try temporarily creating a new user account, switching to that user, and seeing if you get the hang there?
  13. @Elijen this also sounds like a hotkey conflict with cmd+space, take a look at the 3 items on this following page and disable them. https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/cmd-space/
  14. I had to look back in the change log to find when this was added... It was added in Alfred 3.7.1, Build 946, Monday 17th December 2018 😆 While I'm not going to add an option to disable the colour preview, it's a fair point that the text moves. I will rearrange the preview in the next release to keep the text up the top left.
  15. @raguay.customct fair enough - why would Alto's Adventure have access to monitor your keyboard input at all times? Seems a bit odd / unnecessary. I'm sure this is an isolated issue on your Mac for Alfred though, and maintain that Alfred doesn't need to be in there. I'm certain if you were to create a new user account on your Mac, and try from there, Alfred would work in the Accessibility prefs like it is for others. I'm moving to Discussion and Help as you have a solution.
  16. @raguay.customct How did you manually add to the input monitoring? As far as I was aware, apps had to request to be added there themselves, and there is no +/- button...
  17. @raguay.customct Alfred doesn't need to be in the Input Monitoring section, as he is in the Accessibility section which also covers keyboard input. If for some reason the permissions stopped working in macOS, removing Alfred from Accessibility, and re-adding him back again fixes the issue.
  18. @nikivi I really don't have enough info to know where to start with this. In line with what Dean suggests, could you try creating a new fresh user profile, activating Alfred there, and see if you get the same behaviour? I've moved this to investigating, add more info as you get it.
  19. ⌘D will toggle the debug area (there is a tooltip for this on the debug button). There isn't a shortcut for clearing it, but you can configure one of the debug objects to clear the output at the start, or anywhere in the workflow.
  20. @hollistik if you upgraded to Catalina, there could be some permissions issues lingering too. Alfred keeps a cache of apps where possible, so apps shouldn't disappear. Alfred 4 now has a file search troubleshooting built in (help preferences) could you drag a file which Alfred can't find into it to see the output. Also, could you try temporarily creating a new user account, switching to that user, and seeing the behaviour there?
  21. Here is a page which explains Alfred's result ranking https://www.alfredapp.com/help/kb/understanding-result-ordering/ If you're getting peculiar or unexpected results, take a look at the troubleshooting on this page too.
  22. The issue lies in image resources being external to the item you're copying. The copy does a top level copy, and doesn't include all the disk resources below. While this works for copying items within one workflow (as a workflow shares its own resources), copying to a different workflow loses resolution to the resources. This is somewhat typical behaviour for apps which use linked resources (e.g. Music software with external samples, or 3D software with external textures), and while I'm not treating it as a bug per se, I do recognise that it's less than optimal. I do ha
  23. @MarkL Check that "Store and show history of URLs" is enabled in Alfred's Features > Web Search > URLs / History prefs. This will re-show websites you've access via Alfred's input box. For Bookmarks, this can be enabled in Features > Bookmarks, which will list bookmarks stored in Safari (or Chrome). Cheers, Andrew
  24. Helped via email, but for the benefit of others: The guide to re-running the migration process is at the bottom of this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/migration/#re-run
  25. Typinator purposefully disables itself in Alfred's input bar, as shown in their 8.0 changelog entry: https://www.ergonis.com/products/typinator/history.html There is a hidden configuration in Typinator which will re-enable expansion:
