  1. What about @Vero’s suggestions? Did any of those work? Please let us know if you need clarification on any of the steps.
  2. ⇧: isn’t even possible on a Portuguese keyboard, as : is achieved via ⇧.. What’s your keyboard layout, @pinoguy321? Is : a standalone key with nothing on ⇧? That seems weird, to me.
  3. Welcome @Andy Matthews, I’ll advise against that, for several reasons: mackup’s syncing is done via symlinks, which is imperfect and problematic in many cases. Alfred has its own update mechanism. That’s what you should use. Last I checked, mackup’s developer (to their credit) refused to add Alfred syncing because that feature is part of Alfred’s PowerPack. Are you sure it’s working? That might or might not be the case, but that’s what you should check for first. Unsync Alfred from mackup and try again. If it works, use Alfred’s syncing in the future; you’ll save yourself some trouble.
  4. Welcome @Rolli, Open Alfred and run reload. Does that fix it?
  5. Welcome @lllshamanlll, No, it is not possible.
  6. Welcome @Alfred0, You were close. What you’re looking for is g↵.
  7. Somebody will know the reason. Have you tried contacting the Trickster developers? Maybe it’s a bug and you’re trying to build a workaround for something that will be fixed on a newer version.
  8. Connect two Copy to Clipboard Output, but add a Delay Utility between them (even 0.5 seconds worked, in my tests). On the second Copy to Clipboard Output, have {clipboard:1} instead of {query}.
  9. It’s simpler with Alfred, and doesn’t require a second paid app running on the system. I don’t think our first suggestion should ever be to recommend an extra app, unless we’re certain it isn’t possible with the main software (in this case Alfred) alone. @VeryVito Connect a Hotkey Trigger to a Show Alfred Utility, and you’re good to go.
  10. Welcome @evan, That’s not enough information for us to debug the issue. Per your description, this seems to be related solely to macOS and not Alfred. What do you mean when you say you “couldn't switch the window to emacs”? What exactly was your setup and what were your steps?
  11. No, but you might by opening the Feedback Assistant and complaining to Apple. On WWDC they claimed they wouldn’t stop you from running software you want, but these prompts get really close. They’re going against their own advice from an older WWDC already, so I wouldn’t trust this won’t get worse.
  12. Welcome @Ian Robert Douglas, Don’t beat yourself up so hard; programming is already hard enough. There are moments when concepts click in our heads, but even then it’s still hard. Try this modified Workflow. It’s untested but it should work (famous last words). It’s simple enough that you can prod at will and may be able to understand everything, but if you don’t, ask!
  13. Update. Let Alfred filter results in wlu. To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.
  14. I think there’s already a feature request for this. You can fake it by duplicating the Keyword node and connection and changing the keyword in the copy.
  15. Open the debugger, set the log output to “All Information”, and run your Workflow. What’s the output?
  16. You don’t. As the name says, it controls the format, not the quality.
  17. I can’t reproduce; everything works fine for me. Are you certain ~/Dropbox/zettelkasten/ is correct, and that there isn’t a typo?
  18. By design. That has no bearing on the Workflow’s functionality. Welcome to the forums.
  19. Welcome @student, 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.
  20. It should be possible, yes, with AppleScript. For example, if you use Script Editor to run: tell application "System Preferences" reveal anchor "trackpadTab" of pane id "com.apple.preference.trackpad" activate end tell You’ll see you’re halfway there. We still need the code to select the specific tab and checkbox, but I’m too tired to think beyond that at this hour. You may also try Ask Different if you’re in a hurry. If you get the correct AppleScript code, it will be easy for us to help you construct the Workflow.
  21. That’s @Carlos-Sz. Ping. Doing a find and replace for Alfred 3 → Alfred should suffice.
  22. Any language should do, even a simple curl command. If you’ve ever written any code or used a Terminal, look for how to do a POST request with curl and you’ll be well on your way. You may have to request an authentication token beforehand.
  23. Welcome @Yakir, This isn’t really an Alfred question, but a Slack question. You’ll need to find out how to set Slack reminders using their API; making a Workflow from there is the easy part.
  24. “What AppleScript would I need to run to open Audio Hijack and start recording the active microphone? The equivalent to, in QuickTime Player: `tell application "QuickTime Player" to start (new audio recording)`”
  25. Welcome @Andile Johnson, Please provide us with the Workflow as you have it now. It’s simpler to continue from what we have than having to construct everything from scratch.
