  1. Sorry about that! The workflow has a dependency which I forgot to mention, it's the AppleScript toolbox: https://astoolbox.wordpress.com. You're totally right, but since I'm a complete workflow novice I had no idea how to include a dependency within a workflow, and install it upon the installation of the workflow itself (in this case, a simple copy to /Library/ScriptingAdditions/. And since I have the use mouse movement for this script to work, this addition has to be included. Nevertheless, I still can't explain why running the workflow within Alfred fails (unless I intr
  2. Oops, my bad. I thought all workflow objects are included upon exporting it. Below is a link to the (revised) workflow file itself. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4pmsrhnbv7l8wgd/Status Bar Icons.alfredworkflow?dl=0
  3. 1. You're correct, my bad. Here's a link to the workflow (sorry for the mess, it's a work in progress). https://www.dropbox.com/s/x0d4fpnia327oot/Menu Bar Icons.alfredworkflow?dl=0 2. I know, I don't like to rely on GUI scripting and even more so on GUI scripting that revolves moving the pointer around, but in cases such as this (where I need to option-click something), there're no other options. 3. I see, if so, then why it doesn't happen in all scripts? 4. So the only solution to this is to run the scripts within Alfred? Thanks!
  4. Thank you very! I have been implementing your suggestion with great success up until this script: set originalMouseLocation to AST mouse point location tell application "System Events" to tell process "Dropbox" set dropboxLocation to position of menu bar item 1 of menu bar 2 end tell set dropboxLocationX to item 1 of dropboxLocation set dropboxLocationY to item 2 of dropboxLocation AST click at {dropboxLocationX, dropboxLocationY} holding modifier key ast option key AST set mouse point location originalMouseLocation Whether run within Alfred or by the way of your sug
  5. Thanks! And in the script itself, should I do something like the following? on run(q) end run Where q is the argument.
  6. Brilliant, thank you @vitor! And while we're at it, how do I pass an input from the user, as an argument, beginning in Alfred's bar, through that shell script and all the way to the AppleScript? Thanks again.
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm building a small workflow that should run a .scpt file with keyword. I would really like to leave the file as is so I'll be able to edit it using Apple's Script Editor or Script Debugger, as they offer lots of benefits directly aimed for writing AppleScripts. Here are my considerations: 1. Using the Run Script action with the External Script option won't work. 2. Running the script within Alfred or embedding it in a shell script (and either running it in Alfred or as an external script), and I won't be able to use Script Editor or Script Debugger.
  8. Any chance for Finder support? Pretty please! Thanks.
  9. Thanks @deanishe. Two further questions: 1. Is there any control over the way Alfred opens user-typed URLs (and also through bookmarks or through Alfred's own history) in the default browser? Examples of different ways of opening tabs include: Instead of the active tab If there's more than one tab open, in a new tab next (right) to the last one In a new tab next (right) to the active one In a new window And more. 2. I have a USB disk which I occasionally plug into my Mac. When I type the drive's name it doesn't show up in Al
  10. This essentially means that even if I don't see the OneUpdater node, an auto-update functionality may still exist in the workflow? This is done by adding "ps" to the "Comments" box of the Info panel for the Photoshop.app? Thanks!
  11. Thanks a lot for the helpful input. A few additional questions: 1. How can I tell for a certainty whether a workflow has automatic updates or not? 2. Many macOS apps are composed of different - for a lack of a better word - "elements" Two random examples are Google's Backup & Sync, which has a Finder synchronization folder, but also a menubar representation, (with vital information), and a preferences window; and KeyCue, which consists of the actual app and preferences window. Is there any way to define that what "element" will be launched upon sele
  12. This is easily one of the best workflows ever, but it doesn't work in Adobe Photoshop. Any idea why?
  13. Thanks a lot for the immensely helpful replies. Sounds like a much better alternative than dragging (the ultimate workflow killer). And I just stumbled upon this wonderful workflow, which brings as close as possible to Alfred navigation in open/save dialogs. I hope macOS will eventually get better in this regard and allow for native solutions to this. 1. So I guess I also can't queue multiple clipboard items into some kind of a "File Buffer" (with the goal of invoking a command at multiple items at once)? 2. Is there
  14. Hi everyone! A few Alfred starter questions. It's going to be quite a long list, as the more I use this wonderful software, the more eager I get to explore its capabilities. 1. Text expansion: do you folks prefer to use macOS's text replacement feature or Alfred's snippets? Alfred's offering is superior, of course, but macOS text replacements can be synced to mobile iOS devices, which is very compelling. 2. We all know macOS's open and save dialogs are a nightmare, especially after you're used to efficient keyboard navigation with Alfred. Is there
  15. Hello, I've been trying to download this but the link is broken. Any chance for a working one?
