  1. [SOLVED] custom search from a list

    You can use a List Filter input connected to an Open URL action. For each List Filter item, set Title and Arg to the name of the label. Subtitle is optional. Then set the URL for the Open URL action to "https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#label/{query}".
  2. Mapping arguments in Workflows

    Have you tried setting Title to "product3" and Arg to the URL? (Subtitle is optional.) When I do that and type "wcp product3" in Alfred, the result shows up. Note that if you drop a CSV file onto the list, it will not update the existing items, it will just add the items as duplicates. So you need to delete all the existing items first. Have you considered using a Script Filter which reads the items from an external file, be it CSV, JSON, or whatever? That way your team doesn't have to muck about with Alfred's UI or your script to update the items. This file could even be retrieved from a webserver, so that any changes are immediately visible to your entire team.
  3. v3.6 [903] - macOS 10.13.3 In the Call External Trigger output preferences, in the text below Passthrough:, the word "overriden" is used. The correct spelling is overridden.
  4. v3.6 [903] - macOS 10.13.3 Open Alfred Preferences > Features > Clipboard and make sure 'Show "All Snippets" at top of Clipboard History' is unchecked. Open the Clipboard Viewer. Keep pressing Fn+Delete until all items are removed from the history. The text "No matching items or snippets" appears. There seems to be an invisible separator down the middle of the Clipboard Viewer, which covers this text in the middle: Closing and reopening the Clipboard Viewer makes the separator disappear.
  5. v3.6 [903] - macOS 10.13.3 Add the Write Text File output to a workflow. Click the button in the bottom left with curly brackets and and pick one of the options from the menu. The corresponding placeholder is not injected into the text field. It works for Copy to Clipboard and Large Type, but not for Write Text File.
  6. Actually, using ⌥↓ to select a file, and ↓ to skip a file seems much more efficient than what's happening in your GIF, as you don't have to move your hands on the keyboard.
  7. You can use ⌥↓ (Option+Down) to add a file to the File Buffer and move to the next file. So just press ⌥↓ multiple times to quickly add multiple files.
  8. Alfred can't find but Spotlight can

    @vitor According to Step 3, Alfred will find everything that is checked in the Spotlight preferences. However, Alfred doesn't actually display those files unless you add the folder with those files to the Search Scopes. Most people probably don't understand that, or even know that emails are stored in ~/Library/Mail, and that fonts are stored in /Library/Fonts and ~/Library/Fonts. My suggestion would be to add those 3 paths to the default Search Scopes, and then add checkboxes for "Emails" and "Fonts" under Essentials or Extras to hide those results.
  9. Alfred can't find but Spotlight can

    Makes sense, ~/Library is excluded from the search scopes by default.
  10. Alfred can't find but Spotlight can

    As step 1 of the troubleshooting guide explains, by default your search query has to start with "open ", "find " or "in " to search for files.
  11. Make sure that under System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control, "Switch to Desktop 1" is not mapped to Ctrl+1.
  12. What would be the advantage of doing this natively instead of via a workflow?
  13. Download Powerpack for Alfred

    There is no download for the Powerpack, simply open Alfred Preferences, go to the Powerpack tab, and you should be able to enter your license details there to activate it.
  14. As mentioned in , try changing the default browser to Safari, and then back to Chrome. This can be done in System Preferences > General.
  15. @Moody Press Cmd+Shift+I or click the arrow in the bottom right of the File Navigation window.
