  1. This may have been answered but I searched and could not find it, but it makes for a bit a tricky search. Is it possible to use Alfred snippets inside of the Alfred search box? I am using Dr Drafts and would like to include a date in the entry append, but I would like to use a snippet that inserts the date at the beginning of the line. I have a snippet of "ddf" that inserts the date but of course it doesn't work INSIDE of Alfred. Is there a way to make that happen?
  2. Thanks for the responses. @deanishe - totally get that, though for me it doesn't quite work for that. Alfred's search results are limited to 10-20 (depending on settings). It becomes a long guessing game just trying to find the app. After a few times of this a day, it just makes sense to not use Alfred. The prioritization doesn't seem to work for me either - I don't know why or what's going on under the hood. I appreciate the explanation @Vero - though that doesn't really help me solve my problem, even though I understand it's complicated. I realize that the poor operation may not be Alfred's fault but if changes in Big Sur mean that Alfred is less reliable, then the end result for me is that Alfred is less reliable. Anyway - I paid for Alfred 4 so I'm a user! I think I will just be leaning more heavily on Spotlight in the future.
  3. Hi @Vero- I did the same thing and the re-index helped. While I'm here I did want to say that it seems like something has shifted with Alfred 4 and/or Big Sur. I've been using Alfred for years - I just checked and my first version was 2.04 in 2013 - and this new version is the least reliable in terms of search indexing. As an example, I use Dropbox a lot and probably 80% of my queries are in the Dropbox folder. Yet Alfred 4 refuses to prioritize those search results. I am constantly having to hunt and fight to get to the folder, OR I just end up using Spotlight and it finds it right away. I don't know enough about coding or Aflred to know why this change has occurred, but it's made Alfred far less usable than it ever has been. My understanding is that outside of shortcuts there is no way to prioritize folders. But if Alfred is not prioritizing the things I need the most, then it stands to reason I should find another solution, which is a real bummer. I didn't have any real reason to upgrade to Alfred 4- there isn't anything in there that I a) understand, and/or b) need that Alfred 3 wasn't already doing for me. But I upgraded because Alfred has - up until now - been my top used and most essential app, and I believe in supporting developers! But I really regret upgrading to 4 as it's made Alfred almost useless at times. I don't know if that was simply a re-indexing or it's related to Alfred 3. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  4. Hi @Vero, so a couple things - it's not just adobe apps. Alfred doesn't even index Alfred.app (ha) but Alfred is pulling up other apps in the Application folder. I can move the app out of the Applications to the desktop and back to the Applications folder, and Alfred will pick it up. I'd prefer not to do that with EVERY app that I don't find so if there's another way, I'd love to do that. I did upgrade to both Big Sur and Alfred 4 from Alfred 3. I was not having this issue on Big Sur while using Alfred 3.
  5. @Vero - it does on the desktop, not in the Applications folder. Something funky is happening with the Applications folder. Alfred picks up some apps in the Applications folder, but not others. When I run it through the troubleshooter-o-matic the log is the same for both - Alfred should be picking it up but it's not for many apps. Would love to get this fixed. Have had Alfred for YEARS and never had this problem, but not finding apps in the application folder for unknown reasons definitely a game-breaking bug for me!

  7. I have my application folder added in the index, and Alfred is pulling up some of the apps in that folder but not all. Here's the diagnostics I'm seeing.

  8. Roger that! Thanks for the direction. I'll do that...
  9. Thanks @vitor. As you mentioned this is applicable to *all* workflows with Todoist. So I'm not exactly sure where to post it. I'm sure you don't mean for me to post on all Todoist workflows? Of course, maybe it's just my Todoist account (although, of course, Todoist said it wasn't), which is why I'm asking if anyone else is experiencing this issue or maybe it's just me.
  10. Hi everyone, Not sure what happened, but no workflows work with Todoist anymore. You'd think this would be a problem with Todoist but other API interactions seem ok. Is this the case for anyone else?
  11. Am having the same. Here is an expired token: 4a488b0d169da95c70ef7d35e2be3b2982429fd5
