Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. I love this, thanks so much for sharing. I've been having issues trying to copy-and-match style hyperlinks in the right font (i.e. not Calibri) in Outlook with hyperlinks on my clipboard, and this is accelerating my workaround of manually editing the hyperlink.
  2. can you access ffprobe or ffmpeg from terminal normally? I remember running into this a while back, but it's not a workflow issue mostly a way that the library isn't able to being loaded. Was getting a similar error from terminal under a default session. might be a full homebrew issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50657490/ffmpeg-macos-install-reason-image-not-found/50657591
  3. I just experienced a crash (so rare these days) on Big Sur 11.2 (20D64), and upon restarting Alfred could not launch without 'not responding' in Activity Monitor. Spotlight was also not able to display results. Thanks for this suggestion, I ended up similarly solving through 1. force quitting Alfred (through Activity Monitor) 2. change some of the Spotlight 'privacy' settings (I removed a folder I had recently added to the list of 'things I don't want Alfred to index') 3. wait for Spotlight to finish re-indexing (i.e. wait until Spotlight actually returns results) 4. launch Alfred. Things work
  4. I get this error when attempting to use sf > login My guess is my company's sfdc admin is not allowing local connections through OAUTH, which is a shame. I'm escalating internally but wanted to at least write this down in the thread in case anyone else receives similar errors. Workaround is a 'dumb' search not through alfred by leveraging another SFDC worflow:
  5. Interesting workaround. Are the blacked out options your meeting 'names' that you can use alfred to parse? I have installed Meeter (https://trymeeter.com/) and it works perfectly - my hotkey just makes me join whatever meeting I have at the moment, directly in Teams (the prompt asking about devices and 'click to join'). I've seen a few conflicts with all day events 'hiding' normal meetings, but for 90% of my usecases it works well.
  6. see my post edit; appears we basically posted at the same time. I think what I'm looking for is 'mid-string' matching. E.g. "Colombia", "lomb", "Ec", "uador" would all match to "1906 Ecuador–Colombia earthquake" edit: ahh Colombia, yes. same issue!
  7. I spent about 2 days a few months back creating effectively a (crappier) version of this to search databases of my company's part numbers and attributes, as that saves me >1min every time I need to find anything. That was before discovering this workflow, which could have saved me so much time! One note: the Packal version is not the latest (0.2.2 vs. GitHub's 0.3.2). This confused me when I was reading this thread about 'MATCH' after downloading the workflow from Packal. One question, and I will look into it and try to answer it myself. The search/matching doesn't work on words that are following a "-". For example, if I search for 'Columbia' (edit) 'Colombia' in the earthquake demo, the workflow doesn't return the "1906 Ecuador–Colombia earthquake" item. Only if I search for Ecuador will it show up. I think this has to do with the MATCH format, I'll read into it and edit my post if I find the answer edit: it's not just dash, it's basically any matching that isn't from the start of the word. The workflow I initially leveraged to create my custom solution was deanishe's Excel Demo, which leverages fuzzy matching and that just works out of the box. I am not sure if there's an easy way to set up that kind of midstring matching with the format. My usecase would require e.g. for me to type "cuad" and Alfred to return "1906 Ecuador–Colombia earthquake"
  8. I'm bumping this because I had this exact same thought yesterday and started thinking about implementation options. Amazing to see this has been done before e.g. in Chrome, all PDFs that I want to download have a save prompt with default location "downloads" – using this shortcut I can now easily download into the needed directory without having to open a finder window and drag-and-drop its icon into the save prompt. "sheet" trigger works flawlessly. 6y thanks, @Tyler Eich! EDIT: sometimes I seem to get a double entry i.e. the filepath is entered in the cmd-shift-g prompt then entered as file name then saved immediately. I bruteforce fixed this by adding a slight delay before the 'return' key is captured tell sheet 1 keystroke parentFolder delay 0.1 keystroke return end tell
  9. Oh wow this has been on my mind a long time now. Not sure how easy this would be, being an electron app, but if it's doable I'm a solid solid +1!
  10. I just started leveraging file actions more seriously (a lot of value in using 'move to' on selected files using a hotkey). I am irked by the constant notifications showing me moved files: Now, I do have some notifications that I need (or leverage for debug) in some custom workflows, so the solution isn't as easy as 'just disable notifications entirely' as suggested/solved here. Is there any way to implement a customization of notification per category? For instance, I'd like to remove all file action notifications, but retain OS-level notifs for workflows installed. Thanks, Xavier
  11. This is very cool and pretty simple, thanks for sharing!
