  1. Thanks Carlos-Sz. I'd tried creating new workflows and recreating the old ones, but I had the same issue. However I just upgraded to 2.0.2 and re-tested and I no longer have the issue Regards, Stephen.
  2. Hi everyone. During the beta period I created a workflow with a number of file actions in it. I could have sworn that these workflow file actions were available for selected files in Finder (when using the File selection hot key) as well as via Alfred's own file navigation system. However now (using Alfred v2.01 (173)) the file actions are only appearing for files in the Alfred file navigation and not for selected files in Finder (when the File selection hot key is used). So ... did I have a moment of confusion late one night and just imagine that workflow file actions can apply to Finder files? Assuming I didn't just imagine it ... Am I missing a setting somewhere in Alfred to enable such actions? Is this a bug? Has this functionality intentionally been taken out of the final release (e.g. to be added in a later release)? Thanks. Stephen.
  3. I'd like to suggest the addition of an audio output to a workflow. I think this would not only be useful for those with visual impairments, but also for anyone who might just want an audible cue that a workflow has finished. like a ping for your e-mail this could let you know a workflow has completed should your attention be somewhere other than the screen where your visual notifications are shown. I realise that a script can be used to do this (I created a script and example workflow that does exactly this), but I think a quick and simple output would just be easier and more accessible to the average user/workflow creator.

  5. Really like this workflow, but just to add to those experiencing the icon cache refresh issue I'm also getting it as follows: I get it every time I type in the alfpt keyword. It takes anywhere between 20 seconds and 4 minutes to come back with the list of workflows. I'm running the latest version of alfpt.
  6. +1 for getting this option. I had a few goes of trying to run a shell script from AppleScript to return a non root path, but none of them returned anything other than "/". So logically I can see why but just in case ... has anyone figured out a way (even a convoluted one) of getting the workflow path into an AppleScript?

    Not sure if this is necessarily the easiest way to do things, but try this Applescript based workflow as a starter for 10. Random Stuff Workflow Download: http://ge.tt/3AWaDrV/v/0?c Keyword: rcolour Result: picks a random colour from an example list and displays it as a notification. Keyword: rstuff [comma separated list] Example usage: rstuff Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday Result: picks a random item from a comma separated list and displays it as a notification. Hope that helps.

    Could someone make some Evernote workflows?

    I've updated my Alfred 1 Search Evernote extension to a workflow. The new workflow allows to you specify whether to open the search in a new or existing Evernote window (using SHIFT as a modifier). It also displays a notification when it's done (what was searched for) and puts the Evernote search to the front (and raises it from being minimised if required). It also includes a new feature to add a selected file into Evernote as a new note with an attachment. You can add to the default notebook or a notebook of your choice (currently needs you to manually change the AppleScript) and you can make it a copy or a move of the file (move puts the file in the trash). Again a notification is displayed -> what type of action was carried out on what file. Details of how to use it, where to download it, etc. are on the following blog post. Evernote Search+: An Alfred 2.0 Workflow for Searching EvernoteI also list a few ways I already plan to extend 'Evernote Search+' but if you have any further ideas please leave me a comment on the blog post. Regards, Stephen.
