  1. This doesn't work in Alfred 4 anymore. I get notification ("Searching for similar images" and that's it. It is super useful, can we get an update? EDIT: spoke to soon. It just took a handful of minutes to open the results page for whatever reason.
  2. Hi, I use the {date:short} snippet but it uses /, so the date is 05/02/2020. I need it to give me 05.02.2020. How do I do that? Default system dates are set to use . but Alfred doesn't respect that. Thanks!
  3. This is super cool and handy but it doesn't work with newer HA releases as the API password framework was deprecated. Any chance of updating?
  4. Hello, I'd love a "network toggle" workflow. There are separate wifi and ethernet workflows on packal but they don't work for me and I'd prefer an general networking toggle. I know there's a way with terminal: networksetup -switchtolocation "network location" but I'm not good with writing scripts. Any tips? Thanks!
  5. I let Onyx clean/reset everything and both Spotlight and Alfred are fixed.
  6. Applications ARE enabled in Alfred Prefs and NO, this is on Mojave, not Catalina. EDIT: this is probably related to Spotlight as it can’t suddenly find Applications either. I rebuilt the index via Alfred’s Rebuild button, but it didn’t fix it.
  7. Mojave 10.14.5, latest builds of Alfred 3 and 4. Apps stopped showing today. I’m not aware of any modification of the system. Tried reloading cache, rebooting, restarting Alfred, rebuilding Spotlight. Apps ARE enabled in Spotlight prefs. Please advise, thanks.
  8. Brilliant, the Applescript way is just what I needed, thanks! Case closed
  9. Thanks! Just one thing - how do I pass my root (admin) password so I don’t have to enter it manually upon invoking the command? TY EDIT: I’m just using the Terminal command action to do this, with a simple "sudo -b /Applications/Marta.app/Contents/MacOS/Marta"
  10. Hi, I’d LOVE an option in Alfred to launch apps as admin (=with sudo). For example, some file managers like Forklift or Marta don’t run as admin by default, making them less than ideal for my needs. I know I can do this in terninal, but I’d love to be able to do this in Alfred, preferably with modifier key (i.e. "hold Opt to run as admin“). Any tips? Thanks!
  11. Script doesn't seem to work anymore. I'm unable to get any results, it always falls back to web searches.
  12. I'd like to set this as the format parameters: -f 'bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a]/mp4' but no matter how I edit the vd.sh script, it's always failing. I'm not very familiar with the intricacies of bash scripting, can anyone help? The pertinent lines are (probably) these: output_format="$download_dir/%(title)s.%(ext)s" options="-i -q -o "$output_format"" # --restrict-filenames yt_output=$("$yt" $options "$video_url") The goal is to set this, for example: youtube-dl -f 'bestvideo[ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a]/mp4' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-me5AGrIvOo Thanks for any help.
  13. Mojave 10.14.3., Alfred 3.8.1. Usage of mail clients is inconsistent. "Mail" keyword honors system-wide email default (I have it set to Spark), but "Email" and "Email to" file actions do not - they always open the default Apple Mail client. Expected: Alfred honors and uses the mail client set by user. EDIT: I see this is probably due to 3rd-party mail clients not supporting AppleScript. If that's the case, Alfred should give this information to avoid confusion.
  14. I wonder why there isn't a Pastebin workflow - just upload selected text to Pastebin and store link to clipboard. Or, can you recommend a similar service? Thanks!
  15. That's a different thing. I'd like an option to invoke the Actions menu itself by → but to only ever run the commands from it by Return. Right now, there's a high mental load as you need to pay attention not to invoke a command by accident. Thanks though.
  16. Is it possible to prohibit the right arrow key from invoking (confirming) Actions? It sometimes causes me to accidentally invoke an action (=run a command like Open or Get info). I'd like an option to only run a command by Return key.
  17. Hi! I'm probably missing something obvious but how do I move/copy files from one location to another using Alfred? I reckon I'd use the buffer, but how do I paste the items in arbitrary folder? I'm only able to move it to the default folders built into the copy and move functions (Desktop, Documents and Applications). I guess I'm looking for some sort of "Copy/move into the current folder" command. Thanks!
