I use Alfred with remote desktop into a windows box, where I use Karabiner to swap cmd/ctrl keys to make life less frustrating when switching between the two. Unfortunately since I use cmd+space to toggle Alfred normally, when I'm remoted-in, cmd+space is treated as ctrl+space and thus does not toggle Alfred. I have a similar problem with toggling clipboard history. I thought I would try and fix this with Workflows.
I have created a blank workflow and added a hotkey that is ctrl+space, and for the action it I chose "Show Alfred". The good news is: this works. The bad news is: pressing ctrl+space again does NOT close Alfred. I'm just trying to mimic the default behavior of the Alfred Hotkey in the general tab. I'd like a way to reliably toggle Alfred.
I also couldn't figure out how to create an alternate shortcut to toggle the clipboard history viewer. My default hotkey also involves the command key, so I'm running into the same issue. Any suggestions?
