  1. Or get Hazel. It's built for exactly this kind of scenario.
  2. Notes

    download link on 1st page is broken
  3. converting HHMMSS to Seconds

    See also this which uses conversion to seconds as the basis for a time calculator
  4. Ooh it sure would be nice to have a better interface for editing services....
  5. Change clipboard case

    It probably can, but the workflows date back to Alfred 2 before those features were available.
  6. Change clipboard case

    haha no worries @derBingle - there is also this which I'm sure is overkill for most users including myself
  7. Change clipboard case

    Or bash & perl, or python
  8. last I heard he had dropped out of his PhD program
  9. I've run into this issue as well, and don't have a ready solution. I think any kind of automated sync / merge would probably not be worth the effort to build (for me at least) b/c the # of use cases are so few and the modifications I have made usually only take 5-10 minutes to replicate. Fortunately most of the workflows I've modified have been fairly stable (or to put it less kindly, abandoned by the authors) so I haven't run into it lately.... One thing which might help would be an option to "Update as Copy" vs. "Update Existing Workflow" i.e. to have the option to create a new instance of the workflow which could then be manually compared to the old modified version.
  10. And we admire @deanishe for his patience in replying!
  11. Also, if you're using any older workflows that haven't been updated, you will need to change any AppleScript references from "Alfred 2" to "Alfred 3". But this is a matter for the workflow developers, not a native Alfred issue.
  12. AppleScript does not work?

    Just to second what Vero said, having done a lot of UI scripting in AppleScript, I would only use it as an absolute last resort...

  14. I use BTT but it doesn't give you per workflow customization with Alfred.
