  1. Works great on my end now, too! Thanks @Andrew (and @vitor)!!
  2. @vitor FWIW - I've had this issue for quite some time, too. macOS 10.15.6 Alfred 4.1.1 (1170)
  3. I would love to be able to directly access all of Alfred's default file actions in my workflows. @Andrew recently added some awesome new actions for the buffer - and, Alfred already included some of the other default file actions, like Reveal and Browse - but I'd love to be able to access other default file actions, too - such as Open With, Recent Documents, etc. At the moment, if you want to access these without extra steps, you have to use GUI-based approaches that type the file action's name into the File Action panel, which are always imminently fragile and problematic.
  4. @csaborio & @dfay Out of curiosity, do you guys know if this issue has improved since your last post (re: Add Apple Music track to playlists and/or user library, etc.)? I'd like to be able to: Add the current track playing from Apple Music to my user library (so that it's now in my library, or so that I can later add it to playlist, etc.), and Add the current track playing from Apple Music directly to a playlist without first adding it to my user library As for the first issue, I've had a little luck using the following line to get the track into my library:
  5. @deanishe & @vitor Yeah, I hear you. I keep trying to peck at the other languages, but have struggled. If I told you how much time I've spent on these (and other terrible) workflows, you'd laugh. As you can tell, I don't work in tech and barely understand AppleScript. Baby steps! Ha While I'm obviously not familiar with these things, I still find it somewhat surprising there isn't a better library/dictionary for AppleScript to use for purposes of JSON outputs. The one that I relied on in the example - which is also used by a lot of other Alfred workflows - hasn't been maintaine
  6. @deanishe Thanks a ton for taking a crack at it. I really appreciate it. As you would expect, you script works perfectly! And, @deanishe & @vitor your comments were also really helpful, too. I'm going to try and wrap my head around them, and get back to you. At the end of the day, it's obvious that I just need to start getting better with other languages 🤦‍♂️. Thanks again!
  7. @deanishe Thanks for getting back to me. While I might not have done it correctly, before posting this, I tried adding "Unicode" to the text references in the script above. However, it didn't fix the problem. I might be totally wrong about it encoding an issue? Oddly enough, the emojis and everything seem to show up just fine in Script Editor. Thanks!
  8. I’m struggling to get a script filter to work which outputs a variable containing a mixture of text and emojis. In the output, Alfred just spits out empty characters for the emojis (⍰ question mark in a box). There’s obviously an encoding issue I’m overlooking, and I haven’t been able to quite put my thumb on it. To explain, I’ve created a script filter with AppleScript that’s supposed to let the user select a playlist from their Apple Music library (to play it, move it, etc). I recently moved over from Spotify to Apple Music, and I have a ton of playlists (put that's a separate proble
  9. @brunoc I figured out how to implement the local smart group search, in a relatively hackneyed manner by making a few minor changes to the workflow's "dtp-list-groups.applescript" file. For some reason, you have to use the string version of "smart group." I have no idea why, but apparently it's a known problem? In any case, here's the updated portion for others that might also want to be able to select local smart groups: on reiterateOnGroup(theRec, thisDB) set my numCurrentLevel to (my numCurrentLevel) + 1 tell application id "DNtp" repeat with r in (every child of theRec)
  10. @brunoc Previously, I asked about the possibility of adding Global Smart Groups to your workflow, which I'm sure is quite the Herculean task given how different they are from the standard groups the workflow currently searches for. Would it be possible - and perhaps much easier - to, instead, add an option for the workflow to search for local smart groups (similar to how you've added an option for searching tags)? Personally, I've started using these a lot lately. And, since they don't have the same sidebar section as global smart groups, your workflow would be great for quickly ac
  11. This is a relatively minor feature request, but I'd love it if Alfred's Bookmarks search displayed each bookmark's full folder hierarchy. At the moment, it only shows the enclosing/parent folder's name in brackets. While my folder hierarchy for bookmarks is relatively simple compared to other files, there are some areas where I'd find it incredibly helpful to get more information about the location of each bookmark (particularly with research-related bookmarks). To explain what I'm looking for, consider the following example for a bookmark to this forum, which is located in a folde
  12. @vitor I would definitely echo @politicus statement about how awesome this workflow is! It's definitely near the top of my most used workflows. Somewhat related to @politicus question about blacklisting items, is it possible to exclude temp/invisible items? I might be wrong, but the issue seems to be limited to Microsoft Word files. When I run your workflow, it always shows a handful of Word files that start with "~$". I notice them whether I run the workflow on my Downloads or Desktop folders, etc. Thanks again for sharing the workflow!
  13. @deanishe Thanks for getting back to me! Not from what I can tell (at least, not in the same way that every other app-specific shortcut on my computer works with BTT). That's why I was asking about how to return the bundle ID of the focused app through a script. There's has to be a general way to do this outside of Alfred, right? How does Alfred do this? It's not really Gremlin water, right? I thought about going this route previously, but didn't like the idea of adding a bunch of new (intermediary) hotkeys to Alfred. They're
