  1. What version of OS X are you running? (haven't seen that much Lucida Grande in a while...). Alfred requires 10.9 (Mavericks).
  2. Yes. The easiest / most flexible way would be to add a Keyword object for the desired input/output, then pipe that out to an Arg and Vars object that sets the Arg to the name of the desired input/output, then pipe that to the existing scripts in the workflow. Alternatively you could edit the scripts and hard code it there.
  3. Here's a completely rewritten version (in Python) which combines the two workflows into one: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6601556/Alfred/Case Converter 2.alfredworkflow It uses Alfred's built in Copy to Clipboard with automatic pasting to frontmost app instead of pbcopy in Bash and AppleScript pasting, which seems to give better results.
  4. I use the same script in Mail Act-On and it's working fine for me. Looks like a URL encoding problem from the error messages....is this happening with every message? Usually message:// URLs will have the full domain at the end e.g. @mail.gmail.com and the like but your example only has @AMX which would lead me to think there's something with that particular message that's breaking the script.
  5. You can do a manual update by unzipping the .alfredworkflow file (on the command line or with Archive Utility) then copying the contents of the expanded folder to the existing workflow folder (I think....I haven't actually tried this so I'd make a backup of the old workflow to be safe).
  6. Another option is to have the user run a separate configuration workflow - see for an example
  7. You mean like the workflow debugger?
  8. One easy option is to set up file filters for the particular directories you want to search, which may make sense if they are relatively few and fixed - https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/file-filter/ Another is to use the + to add a new workflow then select Examples > Dynamic File Search -- this installs a workflow that lets you search for a directory then search within it.
  9. Vitor is brave. I would have assumed that was a spam post & wouldn't have gone near the link.
  10. Glad that is working for you. To be honest, I don't think I've used the keyword version in several years. You can also delete the two osascript lines in each of the bash scripts and just paste manually (that's actually how I use it). Or try a shorter delay.
  11. cool but does it really need 4.5 MB of node modules?
  12. Sorry missed this. I hadn't used it for a long time but tried it out with a new Sierra install and it worked fine straight away with the exception of the Today and Notification Center commands. It's all using AppleScript to simulate keypresses and mouse clicks, so it may depend on what your keystrokes are set to. You could try replacing the AppleScripts with Dispatch Key Combo actions - those weren't available back when I made it. You can fix Today and Notification Center by changing one line in the AppleScripts: click menu bar item "Notification Center" of menu bar 2 change it to click menu bar item "Notification Center" of menu bar 1
  13. Here is a counterpart to the above workflow, to search the Skim notes of the currently open file. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/6601556/Alfred/Search Skim Notes (Active Document).alfredworkflow Skim's bookmarks are by page rather than by text, so they are not searchable directly but it would be easy to designate a note type and style that you only use for bookmarking (e.g. red highlights) and then limit the search accordingly to make a version that would just search them.
  14. Seems like a lot of work to index all your metadata, build your own database parallel to Spotlight, and maintain the index and links to files.
