  1. All of these are easily recreated in Alfred by setting up hotkeys that act on the current selection - see most recently:
  2. Unfortunately there’s no standard way to input into a text field in a newly-opened app - you’ll need to use UI scripting in AppleScript or some other capabilities related to the app to input it. Without knowing what app it is, it’s going to be hard for anyone to offer any further help.
  3. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/macos-12-all-the-little-things.2299706/page-5?post=30019997#post-30019997 > PHP is completely removed.
  4. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/are-the-scripting-languages-still-here.2300956/ short answer again is yes, but….
  5. Amazon seems to keep changing the output format, and it's inconsistent depending on the book, unfortunately. What errors do you get?
  6. I worry about losing the scripting languages….
  7. Have you set values for the hotkey triggers? Alfred clears them on import to avoid unintended conflicts.
  8. You need a snippet trigger in a workflow.
  9. I'd like to say it's by design but it's actually an artifact of the crazy regular expression in rpn.py line 42: ops = map(lambda y: y.replace(' ',''), re.split('\s|(?<!\d)[,.]|[,.](?!\d)',query))
  10. If you have a script that can paste an arbitrary image into an arbitrary app, setting up a list filter to choose from options is trivial in Alfred. But the underlying functionality you’re looking for isn’t something built in. See https://forum.latenightsw.com/t/how-do-i-copy-image-file-to-clipboard-and-retain-format/590/9 for some approaches to scripting images on the clipboard.
  11. I get this periodically on a machine where my preferences are in an external drive with a bad cable that ejects occasionally….are the rest of your iCloud Drive files available when this happens?
  12. Just to be clear, you’re talking about the little hardware Apple Remote that comes with the Apple TV etc. right, not using the Alfred Remote app. to do this correct?
