  1. Hi, This is probably my most used workflow, so thanks! Recently I've been having some trouble with it, though. Instead of presenting me with a list of search suggestions, I just get the top line "Search IMDB for {my query}" and the second line displays the last name I searched for when the workflow was still working normally. I'm attaching a picture to demonstrate what happens when I search for "the godfather." I'm using the latest stable version of the Mac OS , and nothing has changed as far as I know. Do you have any ideas? Thanks!
  2. Apologies to everyone for going about this the wrong way. I’ll get back to this post sometime soon and try to address some of the issues that need addressing.
  3. Sorry, vitor. I really didn’t mean to be a pest. I’ll go back through the old posts and see if I can clarify anything.

      No problem. No harm done. Let’s focus on having your issue fixed, but to do it the right way.

  4. A while back, a user named Claui created a workflow for me that randomly selects a specified number of files from one folder and copies them into another. I would be so grateful if anyone could make this work with subfolders. That is, say I have a folder called Folder. It's got subfolders called 1, 2, and 3. Each of those has files called 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, etc. This workflow, when pointed at "Folder" would ideally choose randomly from files in all of the subfolders, so it might choose 1a and 3b. Here is the GitHub link for Claui's version: https://github.com/claui/alfred-random_file_picker I know some of you will remember this request from before, and I apologize if it's annoying. It's just that this would make my workflow unbelievably more efficient, and I have no idea how to do it myself. Thanks for taking the time.
  5. Thanks for all of your good tips. I will try asking Claudia again and I will incorporate the information you requested in a future post.
  6. A while back, a user named Claui created this workflow for me. I absolutely appreciate her attempt, but it never quite did what I needed and now it doesn't seem to work at all. Could some kind soul who knows how to do this kind of thing take another stab at it, maybe using Claui's work as a jumping-off point? Here's what I need to do. Say I have a folder with 1,534 files. Some are videos, some are pictures, some might be other formats. I want a workflow where I can activate it (either through a keyword or a file action) and have it ask me how many of each file type I want. So, let's say I want 12 videos and 45 images. I pop these numbers into the workflow and it copies 12 random videos and 45 random images into another folder. Then, I can run the workflow again with totally different numbers and get a whole different set of files. A big caveat here is that this workflow must support subfolders. So the files it selects could come from the top-level folder or any one of however many subfolders there may be. Can anyone build this for me? I'll owe you something. I can't code, but if there's anything I can do in return, I'm your guy. Thanks so much.
  7. A couple of months ago, user Claui created a workflow for me called Random File Picker. It randomly chooses a specified number of files from a specified folder and copies them somewhere else. It does not, however, include files within subfolders of the specified folder. If anyone could edit it to add this functionality, I would be in your debt!
  8. Hey claui, This is fantastic. Thanks so much for tackling this. This stuff is obviously way over my head, but I think this will be a very useful workflow. Is there a way to make it work with subfolders? Thanks again for the work.
  9. I would like to create a workflow that will take a folder of, say, 1000 files and choose a certain number of them at random, which it will then copy into a second folder. Could someone point me in the right direction? To make things more complicated... what if I wanted to select two different numbers of two different file types? For example, I might want to point Alfred to a folder containing 3,000 files of all different types and have it randomly choose 10 videos and 100 pictures, which it would then copy to another folder. Is any of this possible?
  10. @xilopaint Thanks so much. I did not upgrade Alfred recently, so I'm not sure what the problem was, but the workflow at your link works perfectly.
  11. @vitor You're right, it's the network I'm on that's blocking Github. Oh, well. I'll try it when I get home. Thanks!
  12. @vitor Thanks, but when I click any of the Github links I get "Failed to open page."
  13. Does anyone have a working download link for this workflow?
  14. Does anyone who uses this workflow look at this topic? If so, did it stop working for you in the last few days? I reached out to the developer but he supposedly hasn't used this site in years. Can anyone take a crack at fixing it? I would, but I have no idea how to code.
