  1. Sorry - I'm a workflow newbie. When I look at the Open File Action page (https://tinyurl.com/yj87fxej) it requires a hotkey using Cmd or Opt or Ctrl or Shift I just want to be able to type "ss" to open my selected folder. Possible?
  2. I'd like to be able to assign a keyword to open a file or folder. For example, I'd like to be able to type "ss" to open my Screenshots folder. I'm sure this is easy, but can't figure it out. Thank you.
  3. Finally got this Workflow to run after learning how to install Python3 and Homebrew. But how can I change the default keyboard command (currently set to ctrl+opt+cmd+x) to toggle my favorite BT connection?
  4. Reopening my earlier issue regarding opening a Contact with Alfred. In Big Sur, when I search for a Contact, it opens Contacts app, and then opens the desired Contact in its own seperate Window. Each new search results in a new window, so after awhile I've got a checkerboard of contact windows open. Prior to Big Sur & Catalina, Alfred behaved as if I were using Spotlight, ie: Search for a Contact and it goes to that Contact within the main Contact window. My workaround is to use Spotlight to open contacts, but my fingers are so hard-wired to use Alfred, I often forget. Is there a way, perhaps using a Workflow, to pass Alfreds Contact search to Spotlight and have Spotlight open the Contact within the main Contacts window? Any other solution to this issue? Thank you.
  5. Hi Andrew, Thanks for your reply. If do the same search in Spotlight, the Contacts.app does NOT open a new window. Does Spotlight not use the same Addressbook URL scheme? Is this bug still present in Big Sur? Thanks, Matthew
  6. I've got a new question regarding Opening Contacts app from Alfred. In Mojave, when I searched for a contact in Alfred and pressed Return, it would open the main Contacts window to my desired contact, whether or not Contacts app was already running. In Catalina, when I search for a contact, if the Contacts app is not currently running, it will open the main Contacts window to my desired contact. BUT, if Contacts window is already open, then Alfred opens a new, seperate window with just that single Contact. How can I get Alfred to revert back to the previous (prefered) behaviour of simply opening the main Contacts window to my desired contact? Thank you...
  7. Really appreciate this! However, now when I trigger the workflow, it tries to open Parallels app (for Windoze emulation). I have zero idea why this is happening. Doesnt matter what I change your workflow hotkey to, still invokes Parallels None of my AirPlay devices are connected to Windoze in any way. Very strange....
  8. Hi, Got it working on Mojave, thank you. However I see that the workflow just toggles each Airplay target on/off. I would like to be able to SWITCH from one to another. For example, iTunes is set to play to Computer. Using your workflow, I have to toggle Computer OFF, and then toggle my speakers ON. Is there a way to SWITCH instead of the current behaviour? Thanks again...
  9. Does this workflow still work? I entered a hotkey, but "iTunes Airplay Toggle" flashes in the Alfred search bar and disappears. Am I doing something wrong? I just need a way to select various AirPlay speakers. Is there a better way?
  10. OK, I understand. Thank you. I think I found a solution here: https://breaktimeapp.com/
  11. I would be more than happy to pay for this functionality. I'll put in $25. Anyone else willing to add to @vitor 's tip jar? Link is here: https://www.paypal.me/vitorgalvao
  12. @vitor - Thank you for a great timer. I like the simplicity, but sometimes I'd like to have a timer that puts a large message or overlay on my screen when I'm done, forcing me to switch gears. Notifications are too easy to ignore. Sometimes I use an app called Time Out for this (https://www.dejal.com/timeout/) but would prefer something I can launch directly from Alfred. Is it possible to modify this so that it displays a large message or overlay to the screen? Is anyone aware of an Alfred-friendly app that would give me this functionality? Thank you..
  13. Hi, I've updated this Workflow to the latest version. When I try to use it in Chrome for Mac, it asks me to: Choose an account to continue to Alfred Drive Workflow I select my current Google account. But then I get a message in the browser saying: Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In. Please advise. Thank you.
