  1. Just wanted to up-vote this one if possible. "s2" will launch Sublime Text 2, but won't match it in the Open With menu. As a LaunchBar convert, I'm hitting this a lot.
  2. Additionally, some kind of version management. I'd love to be able to update workflows in place. Unless I'm missing it, I need to seek out new versions and install them again. Alfred seems to know to overwrite the old one fine, but it's still a manual process.
  3. Can't test is right now, but I think ctrl-n and ctrl-p will move up and down for emacs wackos. I agree that the vi keys are nice too though. LaunchBar provides those (while holding ctrl).
  4. A good description of this is at http://brettterpstra.com/2012/12/08/a-useful-caps-lock-key/ Just replace BetterTouchTool with Alfred at the end.
  5. I've added a hotkey, but I think it will get disabled by Alfred on import. You'll have to re-assign the key of your choice after importing. I set it to ctrl-shift-C initially. LaunchBar has an Instant Send feature for working with the selected text. Doesn't seem like Alfred has the equivalent.
  6. A workflow to change the case of text on the clipboard to uppercase, lowercase, or title case. Source code and more details on GitHub. Or just download the workflow. --- 4/19/2013 - Always sorts the case styles in the same order now: lowercase, uppercase, then title case. (Removed the `uid` from results returned to Alfred as supported in Alfred 2.0.3.) 4/6/2013 - Title case will now leave common acronyms as uppercase (HTML, XML, etc.).
  7. The `arg` part of a script filter's result (the bit passed on as {query}) is oddly an XML attribute instead of an element. This makes it harder to pass on newlines in results--they just turn into spaces. The trick is to escape the newlines as an entity reference like: Most XML escape functions won't do that automatically, so you probably need to it yourself. Possibly double-quotes too. The best thing I came up with in Python is: from xml.sax.saxutils import escape safe_arg = escape(any_crazy_text, {'"': '"', '\n': ' '} ) I'd be happy to hear that there's a simpler way. Just passing this on since it stumped me at first.
