  1. Thanks for instructing me how to report the crashes: 1. I am very unfamiliar with Mac OS app development. Currently I am using Alfred in my Laptop (Mojave). Alfred has crashed few times in last few weeks (may be once or twice but not much). I looked at Console.app but I am not sure how to find the App specific log files. There are folders like a. ~/Library/Logs b. /Library/Logs and c. /var/log. I looked inside them and did not find any folder named Alfred, so I am not sure how to find the related log file of Alfred. 2. The alfred crashes in my office computer (Yosemite) when I run Markdown TOC (http://www.packal.org/workflow/markdown-toc) on large github markdown file (not much large, just about 50 headers). But the workflow runs good in Mojave. I have experienced Alfred crashing multiple time crashing in Yosemite when using that workflow. Also, I had lots of snippets 2000 (latex snippets) + 2000 (other snippets) = 4k snippets. And when using text expansion, I have seen Alfred crashing in Yosemite. So, I moved all snippets from Alfred to aText. Now When I click Features/Snippets in Alfred it opens much quickly in both Yosemite and Mojave. Previously it would take me about a minute to open just the window. I also cleaned not used Alfred Workflows and backed them for future use if ever wanted. Now Alfred opens fast and I have not seen crashes yet. (Its been two days). 3. Talking about cleaning app, I use Google chrome extension Click&Clean so many times whenever there are caches or browser histories accumulated. To clean the Mac, I use Dr. Cleaner everyday. But I use Dr. cleaner only in my laptop, its not been installed in office computer where the Alfred crashes much often. Now, after crashing Alfred, I have moved all snippets out of Alfred and use another text expansion software aText. and also cleaned currently not used Workflows. I have not see any crashes. If I see any crashes I will post Console.app log files.
  2. Date: July 10, 2019 Alfred version: 4.0.2 MacOS: 10.10.5 (Yosemite) I just wanted to report the bug that Alfred4 keeps shutting down on itself when I am trying to invoke some snippet expansions or use some workflow on MacOS Yosemite. I am using Alfred in Yosemite in office computer and use it everyday. In every few days ( one or two days in week) Alfred keeps shutting down without doing anything and it also takes long time to start on. I have lots of workflows (about 200) and many snippets (~MB) and application size may be the issue but I am experiencing this problem more often in Yosemite than in Mojave (my laptop). I use office computer much more than my laptop that may be the reason but Alfred also crashes in Mojave ones in few days. I am not sure if there are any log files if the app Alfred crashes automatically and if there are any I would be happy to report it. Hope upcoming updates/versions will be more robust to workflow sizes and stop crashing on its own.
  3. I have found this workflow very useful. For example: In github commit the edited file: document.getElementById('submit-file').click();. I am totally unfamiliar with javascript, Is there also an option to "EDIT" the file in github? If so what would be the command? Help is highly appreciated. P.S. Where can I find some commands like: document.getElementById('submit-file').click();. online ? These commands are new to me.
  4. I have been experiencing this problem for little a while. Whenever I try to edit the Utility "Split Arg to Vars" can only cancel it but can not save it at all. How can I edit the delimiter in this args to vars utility? Date: Jun 29, 2019 Alfred version: 4.0 user: bp959314@ohio.edu
  5. Thanks @deanishe , I had just found the mistake this morning 4 hours after you posted the solution, but without looking the solution. I was trying to find out why it was not working and did this echo "$1" "$pwd" > a.sh and looked inside a.sh, it showed an unwanted new line was there and I fixed that by changing echo by echo -n . Then I checked my Alfred thread, there was the same suggestion already. Thanks anyways.
  6. I was developing a simple workflow to copy/move the latest file or folder in Downloads to the current working directory. I have almost completed the workflow but the Alfred debugger is giving me this error consistently: ": No such file or directory" Even though the same command works in terminal. Here is the workflow I have done so far: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/aa Copy Last Download to PWD.alfredworkflow?raw=true How to fix the problem. What I am trying to do is given below: #================ # example # # echo "hello" > ~/Downloads/a.txt # cat ~/Downloads/a.txt # # mkdir -p ~/try\ space # create a directory with space in it # cd ~/try\ space # # open . # this opens the Finder where we want to test our workflow # # command to test: # /bin/mv ~/Downloads/a.txt ~/try\ space/ # this works in terminal # # but does not work in Alfred.
  7. This was a very interesting workflow. But the API has been changed and the workflow in not working anymore.
  8. @xilopaint Thanks, that fixed my problem for Alfred 4.

  10. The app Numi works but the Alfred workflow does not work. Alfred workflow: http://www.packal.org/workflow/numi Numi: http://numi.io/static/dev/Numi.zip ERROR: Numi[Script Filter] Code 1: index.js:120:158: execution error: Error on line 5: Error: Application can't be found. (-2700)
  11. To get the value of "e" you may want to type =exp(1) The imaginary number "i" is not supported in Alfred 4. You can visit the calculator settings here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/calculator/ If you want to use the math libraries of python (math, numpy) you can use this workflow: http://www.packal.org/workflow/python-interpreter Then, pt e**(1j*pi) Gives: (-1+1.2246467991473532e-16j) pt real(e**(1j*pi)) Gives -1. NOTE: 1. In python 1j is imaginary number 1i. 2. In python power operation is **
  12. I have set up a simple workflow to create a new file from the clipboard into the frontmost finder item, but somehow it appends "?" sign in front of the file name. When I output LARGE TYPE, there is no "?" sign prepended, but when I write something it is prepended. How this can be fixed? I have shared workflow in Github: https://github.com/bhishanpdl/Shared/blob/master/Alfred_questions/New File from Clipboard.alfredworkflow?raw=true I am using Write Text File Aflred object with file path as {query}.
