  1. Yeah, I was in there earlier too! But sometimes easiest is best... 😉
  2. Thanks for taking the time to reply, @chris! Useful info. I took a look at the dev docs on Apple. Closest I got to what I needed was here: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/applemusicapi/search_for_catalog_resources But you're right, the URL schemes (if that's what they are called) are very limited. I did take a look at the workflow you mention, but my Alfred kludge is closer to what I want so I'll stick with that for now.
  3. Meantime, as I don't need the scheme for anything else, this very simple workflow does the job (see attached screengrab) Note that "Copy to Clipboard" has the option set to paste into frontmost application. Slightly clunky perhaps but it's fast and it works...
  4. Hi, In Apple Music, I am trying to replicate an Alfred Custom URL search I use to search Spotify's catalog directly in the app (i.e. not in a browser). The Alfred Spotify Custom Search URL search is: `spotify:search:{query}` This will open Spotify in the Mac app and perform the search (screenshot attached). I've tried various modifications for the Apple Music app, like `music:search:{query}` and `spotify:search:term={query}` and various others that are close to the browser-based search query: `https://music.apple.com/us/search?term=[query-here]`
  5. Excellent - thanks for the pointer, Deanishe. There's a ton of other useful stuff in there too on Dynamic Placeholder that I hadn't seen.
  6. In Snippets I'm able to create a shortcut for today's date or date time 7 days from now with the simple syntax: `{date +7d}` and `{date time +7d}` What I'm trying to do however is use the {date:short} snippet in the same way, so: `{date:short +7d}` However this outputs: "11 (second: 38)" My question: is there any way of using {date:short} with Snippet date arithmetic? Thanks!
  7. Hi, A feature I use a lot in Alfred 3 is using Alfred's Search Bar as a scratchpad for quick Snippet expansions that I need to get onto the clipboard. For example, I invite Alfred, type pg` which expands to one of my email address, select all and copy, etc. Originally this didn't work in Alfred 3, but after a discussion here (can't find the thread) it was added—and appreciated! Unfortunately this feature isn't working in Alfred 4. Is there any chance you could add it back in at a future date? On a positive note, Alfred 4 looks brilliant. I'm really looking forward to d
  8. @Vero - that would be very welcome if/when it’s on the table. Meantime, things will improve each day here as the mass of emails with the same mod date move beyond 3, 7 days mod date etc. Thanks for your speedy, useful answers—much appreciated!
  9. @Vero Thanks! I checked and unfortunately a lot of my older emails have a Mod Date of 12 Jan 2019—must have happened during some iCloud issues I was having over the weekend. I guess there's no easy way to restrict to creation date only?
  10. @Vero - thanks for this flow. Is there any way to get it to sort Mail.app's results returned by creation or modification date? I get a mix of emails near the top that span the last 10 years! I tried changing the file filter date range to last 30 days, but it doesn't seem to affect the results. Thanks, Pat
  11. @deanishe - never mind what I mean by "reference" - the List Filter suggestion is *exactly* what I need - thank you! It's perfect!
  12. @deanishe - thanks for taking the time to reply. I think I wasn't clear (I do know what a symlink is). What is need to do is display a list of references to files or folders rather than the names of the files or folders, and I want the references to be navigable in Alfred. I also want the list of references to be automatically created by Alfred. If I use Tags/Keywords for this as you suggest, I can add a tag called "Favorite" or something like that and tag all the files/folders. Then I can get the list of items with these tags in Alfred. Plus the results lis
  13. Thanks @deanishe - I created a symlink but Alfred doesn't seem to have registered it. I type "[SPACE]Alias - Documents" and the Alias doesn't appear in the list of Mac Aliases. Seems Spotlight doesn't reference symlinks. Is there perhaps a way in Alfred to get it to show a list of specific folders, preferably with alternative names?
