  1. So for example (below) and note that it says the event created --- however nothing is displayed in the Post Notification and more importantly, the item is not added into the calendar [17:53:09.612] Add Calendar Event[Script Filter] <?xml version="1.0"?><items><item uid="addcalendarevent" arg="claude at 7pm" ><title>claude</title><subtitle>Date: 25/2/2020 - 19:00 Location:""</subtitle><icon>icon.png</icon></item><item uid="alarmat event time" arg="" valid="no" ><title>Alarm 1</title><subtitle>at ev
  2. I'm trying to dump Fantastical so looking for a workflow to use with Apple Calendar. I came across "Add Calednar Event" (https://www.packal.org/workflow/add-calendar-event) and installed it but it didn't work. So I took at look at the workflow and it's leveraging various Applescripts. That's fine and I note that those Applescripts came with the package. However, it's clear that the problem is that the workflow doesn't know where those applescripts are located. As an experiment, I modified the workflow to put the explicit path to mainnew.scpt and got a little further (it opened the calendar) bu
  3. Me too -- I was using the Fantastical workflow for years but now that they've gone to subscription model, I am willing to switch back to Apple Calendar as I discovered it also supports natural language entry. So workflow for Apple Calendar that accepts natural language would be really appreciated
  4. Thanks - in my case, there was no upgrade so I didn't think that applied - it was a brand new machine that came with Catalina. Nevertheless, removing the permissions and adding them again worked.
  5. I'm having exactly the same problem having just moved to Catalina. Selecting a snippet using a hotkey used to actually paste the snippet into the application but now it only seems to copy it to the clipboard so I have to separately do Cmd-V to paste the snippet. Same issue with Cmd-Option-C to get something from clipboard history. This seems to now only copy the item from clipboard history into the main clipboard and I have to use Cmd_V to actually paste into my applications. Alfred 4 is defined in the Accessibility list and I have restarted Alfred after doi
  6. See image -- as I said, it's just a keyword that triggers a terminal command, the content of which is a single line to run a Python script. These are all working fine on most of my Macs but on one of them, they ALL just stopped working. I did a test by creating a new workflow that triggers a python file called foo.py (what else) that just prints "Hello, world" and Alfred hangs when I try to run it. In the many years since I've been using Alfred, I've never seen this happen before. Opening a terminal window and running that script (or any of them) from the terminal command line works just fine.
  7. I have a number of workflows of the form [Keyword] ->[Terminal Command], the latter containing the path to a python script. These are all supposed to open with iTerm. Out of the blue, instead of that happening, Alfred3 just hangs and I have to kill the process. Any idea what might have changed?
  8. I was using a terminal command before. I figured it would be nicer if I didn't have to do that. Guess I'll just go back to doing that. Thanks
  9. I would like to be able to run a script that invokes git, clang, other programs and have the output be visible WHILE that script is running so that I can see progress. Any way to do that from Alfred? The Post Notification seems to just show me the first line of the entire output and it doesn't even do that until the script has completed.
  10. Yes, spotlight shows them all. I deleted the File Type entry in the Basic Setup for the File Filter and then dropped one of the Powerpoint files on it again. Now it works fine again. This begs the question as to why it broke
  11. I've been using the File Filter extensively in workflows --- VERY convenient. However, I just noticed that on one of my laptops, a workflow is only returning three items from a folder instead of all the matching items. This is new behavior. The only thing that has changed on that particular laptop is that I installed the El Capitan beta on it about a week ago and this issue (I think!) started just after it. Any ideas?
  12. That's an excellent idea. Thanks again for the script, it's much appreciated.
  13. Thank you --- I'm finding that this script does not work consistently. Most times it appears to do the right thing but sometimes a presentation just opens in edit mode anyway. Any thoughts?
  14. I'm using the file filter object to select a particular powerpoint lecture from a folder full of lectures. I'd love to have a variant where I could select the lecture but have it open in slideshow mode rather than edit mode. Anyone know how this can be done?
  15. Got it --- thanks for taking the time to explain it better. That's a nice feature but it adds an extra step. I still think it would be better to allow the "Launch Apps/Files" to take wildcards. Actually even better would be to allow regex specification!
