  1. I would really appreciate that. It is a pain to use Alfred with a custom keyboard, I need to switch to qwerty every time I need to do something involving Alfred... I love Alfred and I'm a mega supporter, but this is really a big bump for me.
  2. The conclusion from two weeks of using several custom keyboard layouts extensively: Alfred is not compatible with copying. I need to switch to one of the layouts provided by Apple to do anything that involves Alfred. It seems that is the problem is that Alfred tries to use ⌘c shortcut while copying, but uses instead the qwerty letter that originally lies in the place where C is in the given layout. Here is how i figured it out. Things that not work with with custom layouts are snippets, while snippet menu and clipboard menus copy to clipboard instead of pasting to the frontmost app. Nothing interesting here. What seems crucial is that keyboard shortcut that involve text selection behave strangely. With customised Dvorak: a) in apps that support any action involving ⌘i, they perform that action (most often italicising the word selected) and then they open Alfred window. But instead of seeing a prefix (from the workflow) and the previously selected word, see only the prefix. This happens independent of the original keyboard shortcut for the workflow. b) in an app that does not support any ⌘i shortcuts, these workflows act as expected In Dvorak the letter "i" is at the place of qwerty's "g", and in place of qwerty's "i" we have "c". So my idea is that instead of ⌘c, Alfred sends ⌘i. To confirm this, I tried bépo. Here "c" is at the place of qwerty's "h". And indeed when I try mapped a random action in my browser to ⌘h and tried to used a keyboard shortcut with text selection with bépo, this action was performed (and Alfred window opened with the prefix but no text). I'd gladly help with any logs that you'd need and do anything you need in order to help you resolve this. PS Naturally I tried forcing Alfred in the settings to always use one of the standards layout, but it didn't help.
  3. Thank you for looking to that. I too have the impression that the problem lies in the fact that this is a custom layout. I'll try other custom layouts when I'll have a free moment.
  4. Thank you for your comments, it makes sense. However, I use Bépo–⌘Qwery, so ⌘V is exactly where it should be (even though V is on a different key). It works for normal copy-paste and it works as expected. The only problem is with Alfred's snippets. I need each time to temporarily switch the layout, get the snippet and revert to Bépo... In the "Dvorak ⌘Qwerty" layout everything works as expected, including the snippets. Let's see what the team say. (As for the formatting, I have no idea why my comments appeared formatted initially.)
  5. Thank you! I'll try to do my best. It's the snippets that don't work with Bépo. They work correctly with Dvorak and Qwerty. In case of Bépo the keyword does disappear, but the snippet doesn't reappear. Keyboard shortcuts in workflows work correctly and according to the Bépo layout. What further information can I provide you with?
  6. This is a huge problem for me. I understand that you are not going to leave everything and start working on an issue that seems to affect only me. But maybe you have some clues or hypotheses at least? Is there something I can check? Please let me know if you read this.
  7. I reinstalled my system, I have the problem again, but now in "Application Support" I have only "Alfred", not "Alfred 3" or "Alfred 4". And the folder with the workflow is not there. So I guess my settings are gone and I cannot retrieve them, can I?
  8. @Gareth I don't like the way you present your arguments (also, you have no data to claim that people don't want themes, do you?), but you have a good point: the statistics of active browser users are potentially strongly biased. The impossibility to use the browser of choice due to Alfred's limitations definitely influences statistics. It would be interesting to find out which browsers Alfred users USE, but which they WOULD LIKE to use. However, I don't think that "Firefox: 5%" would suddenly become "People who'd love to use Firefox, but can't: 25%". Just because of the bookmarks? @deanishe Thank you for the answer. I can't wait to learn to make my own workflows, especially after discovering how supportive and dynamic is the the community here. But for now, I will try to forget how great it would be to have my Vivaldi bookmarks accessible through Alfred.
  9. If I wanted to ask the same question about Vivaldi, should I open a new thread?
  10. I've just realised that your screenshot doesn't show workflows' icons. Sorry, my bad. But I think it could be a nice addition to add them to the workflow, if possible.
