    macOS Big Sur

    Just to let you know, I'm working on new theming options which will allow for rounded corners and also to use the native macOS Visual Effect view (the blur effect you get in Spotlight and various windows around macOS). A side effect of the using this native view type is getting proper window surround, and no fuzzy corners. Here is an example:
  2. Hmm interesting, Alfred should be decoding the XML special chars, I'll take a look at what's going on and get this fixed. Cheers, Andrew
  3. @everyonesdesign I wonder if something on your main profile is blocking Alfred. Could you please temporarily create a new user account, switch to that user, activate Alfred and see if it works there?
  4. @nikivi as it's extremely unusual for people to want to downgrade, and we always encourage people to use the latest version, we don't have any info for older versions on our website. Unlike many products, if a actual issue was found in the latest build, I'd turn a fix and release within minutes of this, which makes older builds irrelevant. Your issue you mention here was a macOS issue, and reinstalling older, and upgrading again coincidentally fixed your issue. https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/16210-422-update-broke-external-triggers/ Is there an actual reason you nee
  5. @everyonesdesign did you quit Alfred, and fully remove him from the Accessibility prefs rather than just un-tick and re-tick?
  6. Big Sur's open command has changed and sometimes does odd things if the URL isn't pre-coded. For example, in Big Sur, if you use: open "tel:+44 123 456" you get the output: The file /Users/<removed>/tel:+44 123 456 does not exist. Prior to Big Sur, you could throw anything at the open command and it would encode and open it, so the tel: url above would have opened Facetime and dialled the number. In Big Sur, you now have to use: open "tel:+44%20123%20456"
  7. @everyonesdesign it's likely Alfred has lost the permissions he needs to simulate keyboard events. Try removing and re-adding permissions listed here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/getting-started/permissions/ Specifically, the Accessibility ones. Cheers, Andrew
  8. This won't have anything to do with the External Triggers, and currently is only internally being used for the URL handing from Alfred's Contacts Viewer (e.g. tel:). It will eventually replace all URL handling within Alfred though.
  9. @Ted Curran It's not possible to hide this text in the snippet viewer, but you could always use Alfred's snippet auto expansion where you don't even show the snippet viewer: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/snippets/auto-expansion/ Cheers, Andrew
  10. Hey! I forgot to chime in when I saw this originally - very impressive! Richer content natively within Alfred is something which has always been on the plan for the future, but this really does provide a solid stepping stone. It wouldn't be a huge amount of effort to post a distributed notification for the quicklookurl, but due to a whole host of reasons (of which you outline some above), I wouldn't make Alfred post this by default. Having said that, for fun, I wouldn't be adverse to make it a defaults write on Alfred's prefs just to see this working better, and see whe
  11. There is a discussion about running x86 terminal commands on the M1 here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=25132217 It looks like you can use the arch command to run x86 binaries under rosetta 2. I haven't tried this though, so ymmv. Cheers, Andrew
  12. If you could update to 4.2.2 b1189 by selecting "pre-releases" in Alfred's Update prefs, and let me know if this fixes the issue for you Cheers, Andrew
  13. @luckman212 Thanks!!! That is excellent investigating I'll update our responses
  14. I should have a fix for this out in a pre-release later today
  15. Remarkably, this looks to be fully fixed in the GA Big Sur!
  16. @thatbadboy perhaps make reindexing your macOS metadata, the diagnostics shows that it's broken. There are a few ways to do this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201716 alternatively, Alfred has a "Rebuild macOS Metadata" shortcut in his Advanced prefs. (Type ?rebuild into Alfred for a shortcut to this).
  17. I've been playing with this, and it seems to be related to macOS Dark Mode mostly, and the "Blur" setting for a theme in Alfred. If you make your theme more opaque, then reduce the blur (from the blur icon, top left of the theme editor), then you can reduce this issue significantly.
  18. This is very odd, and not something I've been able to reproduce, or indeed, something really fixable in Alfred's code. @daouk from the title, is it correctly showing as retina in one of your accounts? @neil4sa could you try creating a new user account and seeing if Alfred shows correctly?
  19. You could be experiencing this widespread Apple server issue causing apps to hang at launch: https://appleinsider.com/articles/20/11/12/apple-system-issue-causing-app-install-runtime-problems If other apps seem to be working, try reinstalling Alfred 4.2.1 from our website. Cheers, Andrew
  20. What's most likely to happen here is Alfred will expose the underlying Bookmarks input filter to workflows, so you have more control over configuring and actioning bookmarks.
  21. @nikivi I'm currently using Big Sur 11.0.1 Release Candidate 20B5022a and what you describe is working as expected. I notice your screenshot has the contacts icon to the right had side, this suggests you're using a workflow? If your workflow is using a File Filter for Contacts this likely won't work as your Spotlight index looks very broken. Have you tried searching for contacts in Alfred's default results? NOTE: For searching in the default results, ensure you have the following settings in Alfred for Big Sur: Contact searching ENABLED in default resu
  22. @chris it looks like you're using the border set to opaque for the "padding" in that theme. There are vertical and horizontal padding options you should use instead as Alfred places the updated text within the window, not the border. Here is an example of what I mean, but with the border set to slightly transparent so you can see where the window padding should be set. If you set your theme's border colour to slightly transparent you'll see you have no window padding set:
  23. @SummerChill thanks for spotting this! While I'm fixing this, you may find a cleaner way to do what you're trying to do without using a conditional - for example a List Filter with all your sites configured, where the argument is set to the URL you want, then connect this to a single Open URL. The advantage of this would be that you'll get a searchable list from your keyword.
  24. In a workflow, you can chain as many objects and actions as you need. For example, what you need may looks something like this: The Snippet Trigger responds to typing :test which is connected to a Copy to Clipboard output object. You place your snippet text in this object and configure it to automatically paste. Adding a Delay Utility (set to something very small, e.g. less than a second) will allow a short amount of time for the underlying app to respond to the paste. The Dispatch Key Combo object will simulate the key presses you like. Just add more delay
  25. @rainerschnelle have you enabled Alfred's clipboard history? It's disabled by default: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/#clipboard-history
