  1. Welcome @Harish Myl, When making a request or a bug report pertaining to a specific workflow, please do not open a new thread to discuss your issue. Making a new thread, while it seems like it’ll give your problem visibility, will only fragment the discussion and make it less likely the author and users of the workflow (the people that can actually help) will see it. Please read the Reporting Problems with Workflows topic, as it gives a nice overview on how to make a report with a better chance of being addressed. Here’s the thread for the Netflix Workflow: And for the Mail Worlflow: I’ll lock this so as to not divide the discussion further. Please report your issue on the linked threads.
  2. What about pasting from Evernote into other applications, does that work? What if you copy from Evernote into another application, then copy from that application to Alfred?
  3. But not iCloud Drive, so that argument doesn’t hold. Furthermore, knowing two things exist doesn’t mean you understand the difference between them. iCloud Drive. “iCloud” is an umbrella term that includes iCloud Drive and CloudKit. Yes, iCloud Drive isn’t recommended for a good reason. That good reason is that it was crap in the past, and it’s uncertain if all the kinks have been fixed. But it has gotten better. But CloudKit would be no more reliable than iCloud Drive, so arguing for one in detriment of the other doesn’t make sense. Also proponents of CloudKit in this thread seem to be ignoring the fact that is has limits a developer has to pay to go over. With iCloud Drive, that responsibility is left to the user.
  4. You’re confusing CloudKit with iCloud Drive. CloudKit is something you use as the developer of an app when you know what will be stored. iCloud Drive is for the user to store anything. And since Alfred doesn’t know what will be in its preferences (because of Workflows), iCloud Drive is what makes sense. If you want to use it, do.
  5. That’s not the correct file. Your screenshot is showing your synced preferences, not the application that calls Alfred Preferences. That one should be in /Applications/Alfred 3.app/Contents/Preferences/Alfred Preferences.app. Open Alfred and call reload. That might fix it. If it does not, follow the troubleshooting steps.
  6. With CardSearch I’m sending almost twenty thousand (and that number will ever only grow) results with modifiers, via an almost 9MB JSON file, and I find it pretty fast. It’s definitely faster than my previous method, where I was making API calls. Prior to that prior option, I tried building the results from a non-Alfred-ready JSON, meaning I was remaking the results on every call. That solution was indeed somewhat slow.
  7. Welcome @Kevin Ly, Yes, it is possible. My OpenActions Workflow does exactly that.
  8. Welcome @lizaden04, This is the wrong forum for that question, as it has nothing to do with Alfred. It should be asked about somewhere else more general. Try Ask Different. A quick web search gives immediate results from Apple itself.
  9. Yes. Alfred has pretty good documentation.
  10. Then this should be easy to do. Unfortunately, I don’t have the app so I can’t test. If you contact Rogue Amoeba or find the correct AppleScript from somewhere, building the Workflow will be simple.
  11. Welcome @Scott Stilson, Instead, make it a Workflow Environment Variable (that‘s what they’re for) and read them like this.
  12. Welcome @rndm__, Does Audio Hijack: Suport AppleScript? Have a menu bar option to stop/start recording? Have a keyboard shortcut to start/stop recording?
  13. Welcome @Eno, ⌘, isn’t a global shortcut, but a common way to show the preferences in most macOS apps. To open Alfred’s Preferences with the shortcut, you need to have Alfred’s window as the frontmost window before pressing it. Alternatively, you can invoke Alfred and type preferences. If that is what you’re doing and it still doesn’t work, can you post a video? You can record your screen with QuickTime Player.
