  1. I’m on a Mac with a fingerprint sensor (but this might happen with password prompts as well). Here’s what happens when I’m on any app but the Finder and use Alfred to navigate to and delete a path with elevated permissions: And here’s what happens if I do the same thing but the Finder is the active app: This is a huge difference. On the latter I need only put my finger to the sensor and the operation is complete. On the former, because the Finder isn’t active, neither is the dialog, and putting my finger on the sensor does nothing. I have to go to the trackpad and
  2. No. But that’s not Alfred-relates. Search for “spotlight indexing stuck” and see what works. Under the threads title, on the right, you have an option that controls that.
  3. Updates. Better handling of software bundles (e.g. if you upload an .app, it will package the app, not the contents as a normal directory) and deletion of temporary paths on exit. 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.
  4. Without a way to specify the keyboard layout, the feature as explained could cause some problems. Even in places where QWERTY is used, the a to ; might not work. It wouldn’t in Portugal, where ; is to the right of m (they key next to l is ç).
  5. That’s the one! Though now that I see it, the equivalent request is your second post, not the first.
  6. The practical reason to use env—as I understand it from the original post—is that if you have two Macs, one Intel and one ARM, both with Homebred-installed pythons, setting PATH will allow the Workflow to work on both machines when synced.
  7. Like you’d do it in an empty shell without startup files: export PATH="/opt/homebrew/bin:/usr/local/bin:${PATH}" /path/to/script.py
  8. Welcome @Boofeast, Alfred doesn’t read your shell’s environment, so you’ll need to tell it where to find the language. Either by using the full path as you used to, or by populating your PATH before invoking the script.
  9. No, but there’s a feature request for that which you can follow and add a “like” to show your support and possibly comment a link back to this post to share your use case. I’m on a phone so it’s harder to look for it, but perhaps @nikivi will be able to link you (it’s originally his request).
  10. Connect whatever kind of trigger you want (Hotkey trigger; Keyword Input) to a Copy to Clipboard Output. On the latter, paste the exact text you have in your example. Done.
  11. Welcome @Charles Garrison, The percent sign already has a special meaning in Alfred’s calculator, for the modulo operator (available in the advanced mode), so changing it to mean percentages might be confusing or cause breaking changes. There could be a settings toggle, but I’m not sure it would be worth it when the point solution exists.
  12. Update. Detect mpv installations even when only the CLI is installed. It only searches Homebrew default paths (/usr/local/bin/mpv and /opt/homebrew/bin/mpv). 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.
  13. Yes, it’s trivial. But forget {query}, that’s something specific to Alfred and with input as {query}, which you’re not using. You’re (correctly) using with input as argv. To do what you want, it should be something like "arg": sys.argv[0], (don’t forget to import sys).
  14. Connect a Hotkey Trigger to a Show Alfred Utility (Argument: the keyword for your Workflow) and a Dispatch Key Combo Output with ⌘⇧←. Like so: Then use your new Hotkey to invoke Alfred. It will call Alfred with your Workflow but its text selected, meaning you only need to start typing to overwrite it.
  15. @chris_arceneaux This should help you support most browsers:
  16. Remain. That continues to be the default location on Intel processors, the new location is for ARM. Both can be installed at the same time. Correct.
  17. I went to take a look and noticed /opt/homebrew-cask/Caskroom is part of the defaults. That no longer makes sense, @Andrew, as anyone with their Caskroom on that location has a really old and unsupported installation which I doubt even works. And I agree /opt/homebrew/Cellar makes sense to add. @mfisher Does Spotlight find that Emacs? Alfred depends on it.
  18. Welcome @bo123x, Are you already in contact with support, or do you mean you still haven’t gotten an answer? Keep in mind Alfred’s team is just two people, only one of them does the development part, and it’s Valentine’s day on a weekend. That should explain the delay. As to your question, to reset everything you’ll want to delete: ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred (Note the space; do not forget to escape it or quote the path) ~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred ~/Library/Preferences/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred.plist ~/Library
  19. Welcome @d32bus, You haven’t told us what the Workflow is. We don’t even know which email application it searches from, or if it uses IMAP for direct searching. It’s impossible to answer your question without details.
  20. That sounds like your problem isn’t yet solved. If you want to try to do it yourself (no coding required), look at File Filter Input.
  21. Click the [𝑥] in the top right. You’ll see it on the right of the panel that opens. It doesn’t. It’s not particularly complex, either, it’s just versatile: it has four different sorting methods and can do different things to the files, but in practice you’re only going to use one (that’s what I do). Either rdn or rda, in your case.
  22. Thank you. There’s a typo. You made it “Aout Mac”. Seems like it will only do so for the startup disk, though. Not if one disables the percentage or hides battery information. Plus, it doesn’t show information such as charging state (which may be “on Hold” when Optimised Battery Charging is on). But I don’t want to bother you further, I’ll look into those. Thank you again.
  23. Moving this to “Workflow Help & Questions”. This isn’t related to Alfred Remote (the iOS app) and is unlikely to be built directly into Alfred.
  24. Welcome @Timbo2000, There are already Workflows for that. I made one, which despite being called RecentDownloads works on any directory you choose in the Workflow Environment Variable.
