  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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...
  5. 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....
  6. 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...
  7. 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?
  8. OK, I understand. Thank you. I think I found a solution here: https://breaktimeapp.com/
  9. 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
  10. @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..
  11. 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.
  12. Is there a way to force Alfred's native search to just search for Folders? In other words, Alfreds search results usually returns both Files and Folders based on my search terms. I'd like an option to just find Folders that match my search term. Thank you.
  13. Hi Victor, Thanks for the worklfow, but I am having the same issue (in macOS 10.13.6) that when I turn DND off, the Notification icon in menu bar does NOT turn from Grey back to Black. Please advise. Thanks, Matthew
  14. I use Chrome as my default browser and usually have a number of tabs open for various purposes. However Chrome is an energy hog and I dont like to leave it running when I'm using my MacBookPro on battery. Is there a way to temporarily tell Alfred to open the results of an Alfred search in different browser (ie: Safari) rather than my default one? Thanks...
  15. Hi, Looks like a great workflow, but still not working for me. I installed Node and NPM, and confirmed it is in /usr/local/bin/node When I run workflow and type: t:Store token <my token#> I get a result saying: Failure: Not a valid token My token IS valid as I use it fine with other integrations. I tried creating a new token (which means I have to re-update all my other integrations), but it still didn’t work. Debugger reports: [2018-07-15 07:34:25][STDERR: input.scriptfilter] chmod: build: No such file or directory Grateful for your help.
  16. Hi, I have no clue on how to install worflows I find on GitHub. (I'm not a programmer) I looked around but could not find a simple guide. Could someone provide a simple explanation please. Or better yet, is there a (non-GitHub) Workflow that installs Workflows from GitHub ?!!!! Thank you..
  17. Thanks. Not using DevonThink so much these days, but will try it the next time I need to.
  18. Hi dvcrn, Thank you for this Workflow, but it doesn't work for me. I'm running most recent version of DTPro, and Alfred, on macOS 10.12.6 When I type ds, the Alred window shows "DevonThink Search", but when I type anything else, it reverts to a Google search. Please advise. Thanks, Matthew
  19. Hi, Grateful for help on a basic search workflow. I'd like to be able to search the Sci-Hub website using Alfred. The website is https://sci-hub.tw/ I added a custom websearch in Alfred using https://sci-hub.tw/search?q={query} But it takes me to a URL of http://search/sci-hub.tw And the browser gives an error saying "site cannot be found" What am I doing wrong? Thank you.
  20. Thank you Gingerbeardman. A few things: - The Search iTunes Music Store take me to the UK store. Is it possible to switch to US store? - More importantly for me, I would like to be able to search Apple Music, not the iTunes Music Store. Do you have plans to develop such a workflow? Thanks Matthew
