  1. I use different, non-default browsers from time to time, and it's annoying when Alfred opens a page in the default browser when I do not have it open. It would be great if there was an option for current/active browser. Which I guess would be the most recently used browser if multiple are open? Browser may not always be frontmost app.
  2. have Alfred with Powerpack install Workflow look at commands listed in Workflow (artist, album, song, etc) summon Alfred type command from earlier (artist, album, song, etc) Note, this is an old workflow so requires one of the following folders to be present to work. ~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Data ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data
  3. Here's the icon I am using, I claim no ownership so anybody is free to use it.
  4. Some command have strange output obscuring their description, see. automation_trampoline(8) I also dislike the icon, it's too busy. But I'll just paste over my own choice.
  5. I've just switched to this workflow from the one you were inspired by. So far working great, thanks! What annoyed me about the old workflow was that every so often it would reindex, and of course you only notice those several seconds when you are in a hurry to look something up and it takes me out of my work zone. I wonder if it's possible to present the Man page in a Quicklook panel? I usually go with the Terminal approach, but it's not ideal in that it often clutters up my terminal session. I don't like HTML and PDF for similar reasons, and moreso because their apps are even slower to open than Terminal.
  6. I'd be happy to test yours. I'm not wedded to this one by any means!
  7. Thanks both. I'm on Mojave 10.14.6 with latest Alfred 4.0.7. I was using version v2.0 of the workflow which had been working until recently. I have it working again. I redownloaded it from here: https://github.com/isometry/alfred-man/releases Also the older version in the OP still works for me. Here's the export of the version I have that stopped working but also now works. https://transfer.sh/15SdBV/man-exported.alfredworkflow Perhaps a corrupt cache? I deleted a workflow data folder for this. BTW I saw this in debug: [18:39:43.265] Logging Started... [18:39:43.301] Logging Stopped. [18:39:43.983] Logging Started...

  8. This has stopped working for me in a recent version of Alfred? man<space> gets me the menu item but any further typing sees it go away and i can therefore not get any useful results. Screen recording: https://imgur.com/a/neDNArt
  9. You may get a hint looking inside the new Music.app for the URL schemes in its Info.plist
  10. Most likely. Sadly, I will not be able to reproduce as I have no intention of moving to Catalina. Also, it's possible to install iTunes etc on Catalina: https://appleinsider.com/articles/19/10/28/free-retroactive-tool-brings-aperture-itunes-back-to-life-in-macos-catalina
  11. Thanks. I actually prefer to avoid clicking menu items but I'll compare performance and consider integrating your change that in future!
