  1. The issue is the argument is being passed to the second List Filter, so it’s being used as the filtering word. To prevent that, add an Argument and Variables Utility between the Filter and the second List Filter and make the Argument box empty (so nothing is passed).
  2. Please upload the Workflow somewhere so we can take a look and see what’s wrong.
  3. Welcome @tailoredfilter, Make a List Filter and fill it out. On each item, be sure to fill the Arg box with something unique that identifies the item. Connect it to a Filter Utility with the default values (i.e. “Only continue if {query} is equal to”) and put whatever you had on the Arg box in the Filter. Connect that to the new List Filter. Repeat however many times is relevant (once for each item on the original List Filter).

    Why are you adding delays before every step?
  5. I’ve used Gentoo in the past. I’ve stopped when I decided I wanted to actually do things with my system. Your box does become blazing fast, but you have no time to enjoy the speed because you’re always configuring something. Well, to be fair that was over ten years ago so maybe it’s gotten better. I mean, Homebrew can also compile from source and it’s a seamless process. Amazon Glacier is dirt cheap, but they charge for everything except uploads. It’s meant as a “backup but hope you never need it” solution.
  6. Bah! Bunch of weaklings, what you all are, with your fancy apps and your files in a cloud. What if it rains? Have you thought of that? True scotsmen don’t need backups, they memorise the binary representation of every file, and if they ever lose one they type it out. And that only if they’re in a hurry, because everyone knows the proper method is to forge the words on a metal plate inside a volcano, and read it back by holding it high to be struck by lighting.

    I think you mean “shameless plug”.
  8. Yes. Every time it fires, it’ll check how long it was since the last check. If it has been longer than the defined number of days, it’ll check online to see if there’s a new version and reset the clock. It will download the new version in the background, but it will warn you with a notification. After it downloads the update it’ll prompt you to install, so you can accept or refuse. The downloaded Workflow will be in your Downloads directory.
  9. Your Workflow is correct and I can’t reproduce the issue. It’s likely this is an issue with the beta macOS, yes. Try the latest Alfred pre-release(3.6.2). If it doesn’t work, see the following post and re-report the bug according to the instructions. I got confused and forgot Mojave is 10.14.
  10. The settings on the .alfredworkflow of the latest release look correct, yes. You are not. You are pointing workflow_url at a webpage, not a file. The correct URL would be https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iandol/bookends-tools/master/bookends-tools.alfredworkflow.
  11. Welcome @Rickw, When asking for help with a Workflow, please upload it somewhere as we can’t properly help you without access to it. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, and you’re asking us to guess yours from a description. There are multiple places where your code or Workflow setup may be going wrong. Without looking at it we’re shooting in the dark. Read the Reporting Problems with Workflows topic, as it gives a nice overview on how to build an effective report.
  12. Welcome @Antonius, There you go. Quick and dirty ruby: puts '<ul>' puts ARGV[0].split("\n").reject(&:empty?).map { |line| '<li>' + line + '</li>' } puts '</ul>' Select the text, press the shortcut, and it’ll be replaced.
  13. It is. It’s also easier to mess up (especially for non-coders) which is why I hadn’t mentioned it earlier. Given the constraints, the Run Script is your best option.
