  1. Search email?

    @Vero Thanks for looking around! I'll keep my fingers crossed that this option is added to Alfred 4

    Thanks for your help @Andrew & @deanishe!
  3. keyboard shortcut conflicts - How do I change them?

    @Andrew @horncologne @greggluhring I have a slightly different, but related question to this thread: Is it possible to create a workflow that uses an existing system shortcut (like cmd+w) as a hotkey in Alfred that is specific to a particular application? While Alfred allows you to tie a hotkey to a specific application (i.e., a related app), I can't figure out how to assign an existing shortcut as the hotkey when it's already assigned elsewhere. In other words, is it possible to assign a hotkey that might conflict with an existing shortcut, but where Alfred is smart enough to know that it takes primacy? In most cases, I would just reassign the system shortcut that is creating the conflict, so that Alfred can use it. But in this case, where I only want the action to behave differently for a specific application, it doesn't make much sense. If this won't work as a hotkey, are there other ways to tackle this in Alfred? Thanks for your help!!
  4. Search email?

    Hi @Vero - I recently downloaded your workflow from Packal. It's great!! Thanks for sharing. Quick question: Is it possible to make the search results open up within the Mail app, so that the message can be seen as a part of it's larger thread (when relevant)? Or, alternatively, is it possible for the search to favor the most recent message when there is more than one result within a thread (e.g., more than one message with the same subject line or whatever Mail uses to organize threads). At the moment, it's a little difficult clunky when reviewing messages that are part of larger threads (e.g., search results don't indicate differences for messages in a thread - e.g., dates, etc), which often necessitates open numerous results to find the right one. Thanks for your help!!
  5. Sending mail to Omnifocus

    @sterling Did you ever find a solution? If so, could you post it here? Like yourself, I'd also like to send messages from Mac's Mail app to a new Omnifocus task. At the moment, I use a pretty mundane apple script in Alfred that simply kicks off the Clip-o-Tron from Mail's menu (included below for others that might want something simple). However, I always find myself having to change the titles or wanting to add a context, and I was hoping to tailor something to my needs, like your script above. Thanks for any help you can lend! on alfred_script(q) if application "Mail" is running then tell application "Mail" to activate delay 0.2 tell application "System Events" tell process "Mail" click menu item "OmniFocus 2: Send to Inbox" of menu 1 of menu item "Services" of menu 1 of menu bar item "Mail" of menu bar 1 end tell end tell else display notification "To send a message from Mail to OmniFocus, Mail must be open" with title "AI - Not Open" end if end alfred_script
  6. Finding built in Notes.app notes

    @Andrew Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Yeah, I was hoping there was a metadata tag for folders in the Notes.app that would be easily added to your filter. Hopefully, others will have some ideas. While I'm new to scripting (and Alfred), it's odd that there's not much documentation available from Apple or other developers on the Notes app. Unfortunately, it doesn't look there's an easy way to even open notes via applescript. It's easy enough to identify the relevant note to open, but I can't figure out how to actually open it. For example, the two scripts below can retrieve the name of the first note in the folder "FOLDERNAME" or its x-coredata: Name X-Coredata The x-coredata makes it easy enough to manually find the note in Finder. Opening it, however, is a little beyond my limited skill set. Does anybody else have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help you can lend!!
  7. Finding built in Notes.app notes

    Hi @Andrew - Thanks for posting your Notes file filter workflow. It looks like some version of it has been incorporated by several others. I love the filter, and use it several times a day!! Is it possible to modify the workflow, so that it searches for iCloud folder names in the Notes.app, and then opens the app to the first note in that folder (i.e., as a separate workflow or added to the present one)? Apologies for cross-posting, as I posted a similar question in a different workflow thread; I didn't realize that you were the creator of this aspect of that workflow. Thanks for any help you can lend!
  8. Notes

    Hi @surrealroad - I love the workflow, and have found it extremely helpful!! Quick question: Is there any way to use your workflow to open a specific iCloud folder in Notes? In other words, instead of searching for text in all of the notes, is it possible to just search for folder names (and then open the Notes.app to the first note in that folder)? If not, are there any simple modifications that might be done to the workflow to add this functionality? While it doesn't necessarily need to work in this manner, an example of this functionality can be seen in Carlos's Evernote workflow by adding the @ character (Workflow discussion here). I don't care if it looks as nice as Carlos's, I was just hoping to find some way of opening a folder instead of a specific note (i.e., by opening the first note in a specified folder). Thanks for all of your help!!
  9. Hi @CarlosNZ - For those having similar issues as above (re: move), two small fall path updates need to be made to the "includes.sh" file - shifting the path from Alfred 2 to Alfred 3. Old Paths DDWD="$HOME/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2/Workflow Data/ carlosnz .deskdrawer" DDPREFS="$HOME/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Workflow Data/ carlosnz . deskdrawer " New Paths DDWD="$HOME/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Data/carlosnz.deskdrawer" DDPREFS="$HOME/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data/carlosnz.deskdrawer"
  10. Hi @CarlosNZ - Are there any restrictions on where deskdrawer folder is moved (i.e., using :movedrawer)? I keep receiving the following error that indicates it was unable to move to the location - which is an unprotected folder, located in my documents folder. Any guesses what might be causing the problem? Thanks for your help!!
  11. Calendar Workflow

    Is anybody having alignment problems with the calendar's columns (see below)? I tried adjusting the width in the configuration file and redownloading the newest version (to make sure everything is up to date), but nothing appears to be working. Any advice for fixing it? Thanks!!
  12. @Andrew Thanks for the clarification!!
  13. Hi @Andrew - Thanks for getting back to me. I think I've got it working now! Thanks!! By chance, is there any way to use F4/Function as a Hotkey, too? On my laptop, it opens Launchpad. But on my Apple keyboard, it has assigned Dashboard (which I don't use and is set to Off in System Preferences - Mission Control). I'd love for them both to operate the same way. As a result, I was hoping to just set it up as a Hotkey and then have it trigger Launchpad. Thanks again!!
  14. Hi @shira - Did you ever find a way to use Alfred to use the F5 and F6 keys (top row function keys) to trigger workflows? Thanks for your help!
