Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. Check the granted permissions you gave the Alfred application. You must have the "Screen recording" permission granted for anything related to screen-capturing to work. ➤ Preferences ➤ Security & Privacy ➤ Privacy ➤ Screen Recording --- *it worked after this*
  2. I have a workflow: Hotkey Trigger: cmd+shift+1 ---> Run script: /bin/bash The script content is: /usr/sbin/screencapture -i -t jpeg $HOME/.local/tmp/screencapture.out &&\ /usr/bin/osascript -e 'set the clipboard to (read (POSIX file "/Users/johndoe/.local/tmp/screencapture.out") as TIFF picture)' So here's the problem: I trigger the workflow, by pressing `cmd+shift+1`, then I see the `screencapture` thing that allows you to select an area, so then I select my desired area, then a screenshot of that area is taken, then this is what I get: The desktop background, nothing else. For some reason it doesn't capture the actual top level windows/applications, just the background. Does anyone know why ? and how to fix it ? Many thanks.
  3. Would be nice if we could scroll search/snippet results with some keyboard shortcuts. I'm sure many Alfred users are also somewhat familiar with the `j` and `k` keys for scrolling, be it in terminal, or text editors, and would find this useful. At the moment: `alt+j`, does this: ∆ `alt+k`, does this: ˚ ...not very useful, and these keys could instead be used for enhancing productivity.
  4. Textexpander has a feature for their snippets, wh ere you can have input boxes that are filled-in when you trigger the snippet (see gif). They also allow you to have this popup window while scripting your snippet too, using: Shellscript, Applescript or Javascript. This feature is absolutely amazingly useful for so MANY things. Imagine you have a complete email, response, bookmarking, etc, etc template, where only a few inputs change. The entire email, response, bookmark, etc can be very quickly generated with you only filling in the variables in this window popup form style. I think this would attract a lot of people to Alfred. If you think about it, this snippet expansion feature is the only thing that's compelling about Textexpander, and people LOVE IT. If Alfred boasted this and everything else it does, it will annihilate Textexpander. Also Textexpander has a subscription model which is INSANELY irritating, people would switch imo if Alfred offered it with their current payment model. Plaintext (plug 'n play): Shellscript: --- PS: This is the only reason I still have to use Textexpander instead of exclusively Alfred.
  5. Hey @deanishe, Creating Apple aliases works, and appears in results of Alfred Search. One last thing though, would you know how to create Apple Aliases via command line ? Because I've looked into the matter in the past, and I can't get anything to work. Thank you so much, you're very helpful !
  6. Hi @deanishe, thanks for the suggestions. For the first issue you bring up, I hadn't put the file extensions, and putting them fixed it, it now opens in the correct application. For the second issue, I used the command, and I got his: `dyn.ah62d4rv4ge80c8x1`, which is the same thing I got from drag and dropping the .azw file into Alfred thingy. Either way, hard links don't work, it seems to create a whole new book, that kindle doesn't recognize, so I'm going to stick to soft links. Now the only problem soft links I make with `ln -s <amazon-book> <symlink-name>.azw`, don't appear in the Alfred search results. Any ideas ?
  7. `.awz` (amazon kindle) and `.aax` (amazon audible) won't show up in file search. I went to advanced and added both types of files but still none show up. I made symbolic links of them, and added symbolic links as file type to search, still none show up. only files created with `link <source> <target>` show up in search, but files like that can't be opened by the desired application, it just gives you applications that open text files. how to get `.awz` and `.aax` and symbolic links to appear in alfred file search please ? (Attached is a screenshot with three files i have made in finder, the first thing in the name of the file before `_` is the terminal command i used to create the link file. there's also a screenshot of the alfred file types that i've added to be searched under "Features > Default Results > Extras > Advanced". finally there's a screenshot that shows the alfred search i did, and you can see the results of what shows up and what doesn't
  8. (When API comes out ! Also reach out maybe to the Brave developers, I'm sure one of them even uses Alfred !) Definitely, definitely, definitely must include Brave browser bookmarks support, this thing is taking off like crazy in the tech savy users sphere, which is the exact population that would know about and use something like Alfred. Would extremely appreciate bookmark support for this browser, it's beyond annoying to have to switch to google chrome just to add a bookmark and then go back to brave to continue browsing; like it makes no sense, especially that some people don't even want google chrome downloaded on their system. For me personally, it's literally the last barrier to overcome before completely switching to Brave full time. It's really just a matter of time before like half the world uses this (ok maybe exaggerating but seriously), everybody that tried it made the switch already, it's that good... and maybe for some new comers to Alfred, that exclusively use Brave, it could be a hard turn off that there isn't bookmark support, especially that a BIG portion of Alfred's utility for non-Powerpack (but also for Powerpack, hardcore) users is the INSTANT BOOKMARK search results.... that they can't use because they don't use chrome, let alone safari --- agreed, that shouldn't be the case. Thanks in advance, best utility application, hands down, by light years, there is on MacOS, period. PS: I've tried the suggested workflow, but it's not even close to comparable to Alfred's native support (instant results). Also it would be nice if Alfred could natively support Browser history, a great idea supported by this workflow ! Looking forward ! Thanks for your time and efforts for developing and maintaining this application !
  9. Hey I have a problem: I just downloaded the workflow, made a spotify app, then entered in my app client id and app secret, and then did "Authenticate to Spotify", it took me to something that said: "INVALID_CLIENT: Invalid redirect URI". Help ? Also where is the documentation/setup tutorial ?
