Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. If I search for myself using Alfred, my contact record appears 4 times. How do I just make it appear once, which is what I would expect. Spotlight does the same - do I need to rebuild my indexes?
  2. Thank you so much. I've added the 'sp' keyword as suggested.
  3. Guys and Gals, I had an interesting issue last night where there was an erroneous entry in my Default Browser drop-down in Safari Preferences, as illustrated below: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/92027174/Screen%20Shot%202013-07-30%20at%209.05.26%20PM.jpg The Wondershare App that is displayed was not even on my system any more, and DEFINITELY was not a browser. I figured that there would be a phantom plist somewhere. I typed 'Wondershare' into Alfred, and there WERE a few bits and pieces listed which I removed, but this did not fix the issue. I typed Wondershare into Spotlight, and Wondershare.plist appeared in the Developers section. I deleted it, and rebooted my Mac. The Wondershare entry illustrated above disappeared! I was very happy. My questions: 1) Why didn't Alfred find 'Wondershare.plist', but Spotlight did? and 2) What do I need to change in Alfred setting to make sure that plist files are displayed in future? Cheers, Smurf
  4. I changed the Apple Scripting in the above example to the following, and I now no longer have to enter a password. do shell script "bless -mount /Volumes/Windows -legacy -setBoot -nextonly" password "[YourPassword]" with administrator privileges do shell script "shutdown -r now" password "[YourPassword]" with administrator privileges Windows is the name of my Bootcamp volume. Replace [YourPassword] with the appropriate password. Works a treat. Thanks to the original author for the inspiration.
  5. Great workflow. I agree that is would be better to not have to type the password, but this is a good compromise. I love the fact that within 2 minutes of thinking "Hmm.. It would be handy if Alfred could..", I've found a workflow that does pretty much what I need. You guys rock.
  6. I'm pretty certain that with Alfred v1 I could find songs in my iTunes library by typing a partial song name into the search box. As an example, typing 'sand' (minus quotes) would find 'Enter Sandman' by Metallica and then hitting return would start that song playing in iTunes. This functionality does not appear to exist in v2, even thought I've added ~/Music/iTunes to my search scope. What am I doing wrong? I have started using a hotkey for the mini-player, and that DOES find the correct song, but I'm curious why the functionality has changed?
