  1. @Bhishan I've implemented this in a much larger workflow, so I'd recommend downloading @Andrew's posted above (July 18, 2018) - which fixes the original workflow: I just checked, and his Dropbox upload still works.
  2. @deanishe When I run the suggested command, Alfred's Preferences merely open. That is, they do not open to the specific workflow's path (let alone the Workflows tab/window, unless it was open previously).
  3. Does anyone have a workflow that searches imported workflows, and then opens the selected workflow in Alfred's Preferences tab (i.e., instead of opening Alfred's Preferences tab, and then using its search bar)? I have found several great workflows - like @dfay's Workflow Picker or @pochemuto's Alfred Keywords - that search your existing workflows and then run them or reveal them in Finder, etc, but I haven't been able to find one that has the option to open the workflow in Alfred's preferences window. Like most people, I find myself constantly tweaking my existing workflows, and would love to find an easier way to search and open them in Alfred. Thanks for your help!
  4. @mandrigin Thanks for sharing this workflow. It's awesome! I can't believe this is a "little weekend project." This thing is awesome! Out of curiosity, do see yourself adding multiple-spaces/desktops to it any time soon? I've tried a few window switching apps that are dedicated to this function, and I actually like your workflow's interaction better in many ways. My only problem is that I like to work on several desktops/spaces at a time. @oldhgf By chance, did you have any luck tinkering with the desktops/spaces issue? Thanks again for sharing!
  5. Good News: After reaching out to Google Drive's support, it looks like they've fixed the problem. The account-specific urls - specific above - are working again! Case closed ... Ha
  6. Does anyone know how to create an account-specific URL for Google Drive? In the past, my Google Drive-related Alfred workflows relied on the following paths: Open Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/account@gmail.com Search Drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/account@gmail.com/search?q={query} However, this approach seems to have stopped working a few weeks ago (at least, that's when I noticed it). Now, I just receive an error indicating that the URL was not found on the server. To be clear, you can still open and search Google Drive by using the number associated with the account - numbered from from zero and up based on the order in which you've logged in to them (e.g., https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2). However, I've never been a big fan of this approach because if you log in to your accounts in a different order, then the associated account numbers in the URL will change. For example, https://drive.google.com/drive/u/2 may become https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0. Oddly enough, this account-specific approach still seems to work for gmail. So, for example, the following paths still seem to work fine: Open Gmail: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/account@gmail.com Search Gmail: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/account@gmail.com/search?q={query} Are others noticing the same problem? I've tried logging in and out several times to make sure that I'm properly signed in to everything. I've also tried different browsers, but the problem with Google Drive appears to persist. I couldn't find much about this issue posted in this forum or others - like Stack Exchange - but I was hoping that someone with similar workflows might have some advice (or knowledge of whether Google is changing its approach). Thanks for any help you can lend!
  7. @sballin No problem! Thanks for trying though. I really appreciate it.
  8. Thanks for the advice @Vero!! It reminded me of the old SEO garbage in websites, too. One quick follow up question, when you said to "reload" it into Alfred after adding it to Spotlight's privacy tab, were you referring to the "Clear Application Cache" or "Rebuild MacOC Metadata" options? Or is this something different? Out of curiosity, instead of adding the application to Spotlight's privacy tab, could you also remove it from Alfred's results by adding the following text to its comments: "alfred:ignore"? Or does Alfred not look at this information when dealing with apps? Thanks again for all of your help!!
  9. @deanishe Thanks for the heads up! As always, you were correct. I took a look at the info.plist file in the application's contents folder, and these bloody keywords are all listed as a string there. Instead of being called kMDItemKeywords - as indicated above - however, they are located under a heading/key called MDItemKeywords. If I delete the tag for the key and string from this file, what are the chances that Tim Cook kicks me in the shin and takes my laptop? In all seriousness, I don't want to invalidate the app's signature, but I can't understand why this developer put all this garbage here. Thanks!
  10. Hi @Andrew - By chance, is there any way for users to turn off the middle/center truncation of long file names? While I can appreciate why many people would prefer to have Alfred truncate long file names in the middle, personally, I'd prefer to see Alfred's results as they used to appear in the old version (i.e., without truncation and ellipses at the end). I tried digging through Alfred's settings and this forum, but I didn't find much discussion. Is there any option for this in Alfred? The reason might be more specific to my own habits, but I suspect others would prefer to have control over it, too. I have tons of research-related PDFs on my computer whose file names typically follow the way they're cited. As a result, they tend to include a lot of information at the end of the file name that is not as helpful (like edition, editor's names, publication year, etc.). So, when these PDFs pull up in my results, I typically only see the author's names, the end of the citation, and the file extension. This might just be me, but I don't find this information as useful for finding the appropriate PDF. As always, thanks for your help!
  11. @Vero By chance, do you know of a tool that people can use to delete or modify this metadata? I have an app where the developer put a bunch of garbage in the kMDItemKeywords field (which shows up (1) in the Alfred Metadata Tool as kMDItemKeywords and (2) in Finder's Info panel under More Info: Keywords). As a result of these extraneous keywords, Alfred often finds this app when it shouldn't - which drives me crazy. I tried using Terminal's xattr command to remove the app's keywords, but I couldn't get it to work with either of the following: xattr -d kMDItemKeywords /FILEPATH/APPLICATION.app xattr -d com.apple.metadata:kMDItemKeywords /FILEPATH/APPLICATION.app Terminal just indicates that there is "no such xattr ...". I'm not partial to using Terminal, or the xattr command, for that matter. I'd be happy to purchase an app that has an interface that makes this sort of thing easy - i.e., if @Vero or anyone knows of one? As always, thanks for your help!
  12. @Carlos-Sz Is there any way you could post your workflow again (re: file action to move files to a new folder)? The previous link no longer works. Thanks for your help! Or, of others have an updated version, that'd be great, too. Thanks!
  13. Not to the rest of us mere mortals! Thanks again, @deanishe
  14. @deanishe Thanks for the update to SA (re: order of devices tabs list)! You're the best!!
