  1. Vero, you're absolutely right about the source of this problem. The Dictionary app did not install any content when 10.13.1 was installed. I've never experienced that before in all the time I've been working with Apple, but still should have checked it before posting. If I still have problems after the dictionaries are installed, I'll report back. Thanks again!
  2. I just updated to the latest version of Alfred and now the dictionary link appears to be broken. Whether I use d (define) or s (spell) the word is never found. This includes words like "and", "there", etc. Is this function broken in v3.5.1?
  3. I'm seeing a great deal of latency while using Alfred v2.5.1 (308). It manifests itself by a delay in displaying the Alfred input window and jerking and hesitant recognition of input. I'm currently using a pre-release of Yosemite 10.10.1 (14B23). I'm on a mid-2010 MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM. Any other reports of this behavior? For the record, I am seeing latency in other services, particularly typing, and I'm trying to track down the culprit. Since Alfred is central to my workflow, I wanted to make sure that no one else was having this issue while running Yosemite. Thanks!
  4. That did it! It works like a charm. Thank you so-o much. This will make a dramatic difference in my being able to process the large number of images I receive every day and sort them appropriately.
  5. David, I followed your directions but don't seem to be able to get it to work. When I run it with the key combo I've selected (^⌥⌘6) the only thing that happens is the File menu in Finder flashes for a second, but the files I've chosen isn't moved. Here's what my workflow looked like...
  6. I'd like to create a workflow that takes a file and copys it to a specific location. As an example, I'd like to assign a key combo to a workflow that would allow me to take a highlighted file and automatically copy it to a folder called dailies. If one exists, I'd sure appreciate it if someone would point me to it. If it doesn't yet exist, can someone tell me how to create it? Many thanks!!
  7. Thanks so-o much. This worked perfectly and is exactly what I wanted. Clearly you "got" what I was trying to do, and taught me some tricks about Alfred at the same time.
  8. I came across this post and would like to do the same thing, but always have the file I've selected in Pathfinder sent to Photoshop. My default for images is ViewIt and I don't want to change that. If, however, an image needs some retouching or work, I'd like to automatically send it to Photoshop with a keystroke combination. I understand the Cmd+Opt+\ function, but that requires me to choose Photoshop as the application each time. Is there a way that I can use Open With and always have the image go to Photoshop? Unfortunately, I'm not a programmer and I'm not sure how to pull this off in Alfred. In advance, thanks to anyone who can help me with this.
  9. Jack, now it's working. Thanks for the quick fixes! The only disappointing news is that notifications have stopped again, even after I run your Notes workflow, which does show a notification. Go figure. As always, thanks for all of your efforts on behalf of those using Alfred. I wish I had your expertise in coding!
  10. Jack, we're in different time zones so October 23 at 12:01PM is still about 2 hours off for me, more at the time of the screen capture. My own 2¢ would be that noon, midnight, and tomorrow would be good to add.
  11. Well, the notification showed up, but there's now a problem with time not showing up correctly during entry. Take a look at this one where I use the actual time as PM and which shows up as AM. The other uses the keyword NOON which isn't recognized.
  12. Jack, so here's something that may be interesting regarding notifications. I also use your Notes workflow and DID receive a notification, as I would have expected, when I entered one this morning.
  13. Yep, that syntax works! I was using your guide to usage on the first page of this string, third from the bottom. I should have looked at the very last one!
  14. Jack, thanks for all the detective work! The QXPScriptingAdditions.osax is most likely a remnant of a version of QuarkXpress I had installed a few years ago and removed. I deleted the file this morning but it hasn't made much difference one way or the other. There are a couple compatibility problems with Alfred that Mavericks has introduced. Besides notifications, definitions are also broken because Spotlight now handles them differently. No change in the process of trying to add a reminder with the updated workflow. Here's a quick screen shot of what happens when I try and add "RADD on today 12:01pm Call Jack James". The only successful way I've found to get your script to work is to use "RADD today Call Jack James". Hopefully Apple will get this sorted out quickly. I see they closed the beta program on Mavericks yesterday which means there should be a new one opening for 10.9.1 in the very near future. If the osax problem isn't fixed at the release of that build, I, too, will file a ticket with development and see if we can't get their attention!
  15. Jack, I'm running 13A603 which was posted yesterday. For the record, you can get it via the MAS. When you try and download it it'll tell you that you already have it installed and do you want to re-download the entire installer. Click continue and after it's reinstalled, you'll see you have 13A603. Yes, I'm running 2.09, build 214 of Alfred. Here is the rtest you requested. Also, am I missing something that I can't insert a time into the RADD line. As an example, RADD Today at noon Call Jack James. As soon as I enter time it turns into a Google search, which is my default for unrecognized text in Alfred.
  16. Jack, I'm having some problems using this workflow with the Mavericks GM. First, in the Privacy panel in SysPrefs, the osascript opion is not available. Second, using the default of "r" and using the syntax you've described opens a search in Chrome, and doesn't create a Reminder. As an example, r at noon to Check Twitter simply sends the line to Chrome as a search. Any ideas what's happening??
  17. Michelle, any way this workflow could check for updates? I've been using it for a long time, but with the release of the GM of Mavericks, it stopped working. It would be great if the workflow could check and see if you've updated it with new capabilities, etc., especially concurrent with an OS upgrade. Great workflow! Many thanks for you efforts.
  18. I'm running the GM of Mavericks and notice that Define (I use the letter D to activate it) no longer seems to connect to Dictionary and display the definition as it did in Mountain Lion. Is this a change in Mavericks and will Alfred compensate for it in a future release? For the record, I notice that Spotlight has the same behavior, which is why I assume this behavior is happening in Alfred.
  19. I'm a crossword guy and this is a very handy workflow! Thanks.
  20. I got this to work once I changed the default list param. My bad. Works really well! Thanks!!
  21. Subsequent to my post under this string, I found your other workflow for Notes and it's working perfectly. I use Notes extensively, so that workflow is a godsend to me!
  22. Hmmm, I get an error that Alfred was unable to create the reminder with the string "rem play golf @today 1:00pm". Any idea what's happening? Thanks!
  23. Awesome!! I can now cheat on my daily crossword puzzle much faster than before!! Seriously, great work!
  24. It worked perfectly for me! So-o helpful! Thanks for an excellent utility for the new Alfred. I'll be using this every day!
