  1. I'm sorry @dfay . I have not created workflows in a while and I am rusty. Your keyword + script solution works fine for one template. I can't remember how to create a workflow with one keyword (hs) which would display a selection of templates to choose from thanks again very much
  2. Yes, you are right, sorry. The link works, but when I tried to create an Alfred query it did not May I ask you: where should I insert {query} below ? with or without = ? thank you
  3. Hello, I set up a number of queries but in all cases there was something like search of query in the URL. I can't figure out how to set up a query for https://context.reverso.net/translation/english-german I have no problems with other translation sites like Linguee This is the web site https://context.reverso.net/translation/english-german/ If I translate this is a test, the URL becomes https://context.reverso.net/translation/english-german/this+is+a+test But if I click on the link below, it is corrupt. https://context.reverso.net/translation/english-german/this+is+a+test thanks in advance for your time and help
  4. Thank you. Your work is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, when I run the workflow, dictcc opens but in the previous search. I tried changing all kinds of settings but it did not work.
  5. @deanishe In the Fluid app, I can generate a search by editing the query in the tab bar If I edit the query twice (first with alfred, then with bear), the tab is refreshed with the new search. No new tab is opened.
  6. I did 2 searches as per below. I do many per day. I have never closed a tab As you can see, the tab is refreshed. No tab is added or opened. I do not paste anything. I open the app → enter the term in the search field. Yes, the app is set to View → Tab Bar as confirmed on the image below. thank you for testing.
  7. @vitor @deanishe @Andrew You are absolutely right @vitor. The reason I asked is that the app I am using is a hybrid: a website converted to an app using Fluid. At the top I can see the actual web site in a format which seems amenable to a query. The image below is from the dict.cc Fluid “app”, not a browser. The advantage of this approach (which can be extended to any website converted to an app with Fluid) is that no “tab” is opened each time I perform a search, contrary to a browser, which opens a tab for each search. In other words, if I lookup words 100 times (either directly in Chrome or using Alfred's query) , I will end up with 100 tabs in Chrome (one of the reasons why people end up with so many open tabs), as opposed to the Fluid version which is limited to one single window/tab which is refreshed with each search. A solution to this issue would expand Alfred's query power.
  8. yes, with a query, but @vitor says that it is not possible. thank you both
  9. I often use Alfred to query web sites, for example https://www.dict.cc/?s={query} for the dict.cc dictionary site I converted the above URL to an app using Fluid. I was wondering is there is a way to pass on queries the app instead of the URL The advantage is that when I use the URL query with a web site, a new tab is opened each time. If I use the app form, I just work in one window. thanks in advance for your time and help
  10. I have 12,000 + Evernote notes, a few of which I access multiple times a day. I was looking for a quick way to access those notes in Evernote desktop and configure Alfred to do so. In Evernote, I right click on the note in the notes list → in the context menu you see Copy Note Link - do NOT choose that option. Instead press the option key and a new menu item will appear called Copy Classic Note Link → click on Copy Classic Note Link → go to Alfred → Features → Web Search → new custom search → paste the link as the URL, assign title and keyword, etc. If you want the evernote note to open in the web version of evernote, use copy note link above instead of copy classic note link. I find this method much faster than going through Evernote search workflows
  11. thank you @deanishe this is the reference https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/file-actions-from-alfred-or-finder/ @Vero : how can I add your Evernote file action ? thank you both.
  12. in the documentation I see evernote, but not in my file actions in alfred pref. thank you documentation my alfred preferences
  13. Could you direct me to the alfred help page where ?+keyword is discussed ? I can't find it. thank you
  14. Objective: when looking at a web site in a browser, I often want to add the URL to my Alfred Custom searches. There are 2 types of Alfred → Pref → Features → Web Search → Custom Search : with or without query which will thus require 2 distinct keyboard maestro macros The keyboard maestro macro below is a composite of both macros (without and with query), the only difference being that in the macro with query I insert an action which runs a regex on the URL replacing all text after the first = sign with {query} The regex is: Search (\S*?)=.*$ Replace \1={query} How it works: While I am in the browser, looking at the website, I trigger the macro and, * I end up in the Alfred custom search dialog box * the URL is automatically pasted (with or without query) (1) * the cursor is in the title field (2). I just have to complete the title and keyword.
  15. @deanishe 1- script for custom search: OK 2- Let's say that I have the following custom URL: how do I “open it in Alfred ?” alfred://customsearch/https://www.thetimes.co.uk/ If I enter the above in Chrome → enter → a dialog box appears asking if I want to open it in alfred 4 → I say yes → error message thank you @deanishe
  16. I am referring to sections (1) or subsections (2) as per image example: go directly to workflows section or go directly to features → web search thanks in advance for your time and help
