  1. lf you have the Alfred power pack, you can download the workflow above - then you’ll need to set the keystroke to trigger it. See https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/hotkey/
  2. something like this should work - basically there are two versions of the file and Alfred calls a shell script to copy one or the other into a third active file. I found that was easier than trying to parse file contents.
  3. Why wouldn’t you put them all in one workflow per service? Alternately use BBEdit or the like and do a multifile search of the plists?
  4. it looks like you had this issue before - have you tried rebuilding launch services so markdown files get the correct uti assigned?
  5. This is already easily done with snippet triggers.
  6. Yeah I subsequently tried the demo & it works for me. Here's the output - looks fine to me. <?xml version="1.0"?> <items><item uid="bib/Users/someusername/Library/Caches/Metadata/edu.ucsd.cs.mmccrack.bibdesk/Cannon-2010a.bdskcache" arg="/Users/someusername/Library/Caches/Metadata/edu.ucsd.cs.mmccrack.bibdesk/Cannon-2010a.bdskcache"><title>Vulnerability, resilience and development discourses in context of climate change</title><subtitle>article, 2010: Cannon, Terry; Mu&#x308;ller-Mahn, Detlef</subtitle><icon>icon.png
  7. I have an old unsupported 3rd party script filter that outputs Alfred XML & I don't have time or knowledge to rewrite the php to output JSON. This was working fine until recently it started throwing the following error: [10:16:47.624] ERROR: BibDesk Search[Script Filter] JSON error: JSON text did not start with array or object and option to allow fragments not set. It seems Alfred has stopped recognizing the old deprecated XML. Is there a way to force a script filter to still use the legacy XML processor instead? https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflow
  8. Last I checked you could only style large type - see
  9. Yes, you can use a snippet trigger. Here's an example: & the docs here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/snippet/ & an easy fix for a potential issue:
  10. That’s how the Case Converter works.
  11. Here’s an existing workflow that allows both keyword (to script filter) and triggers:
  12. Catalina flags this as unable to check for malware. Same with the latest version from GitHub. Contains an unsigned binary.
  13. But the example you posted is from a Run AppleScript object...
  14. Click the Alfred menu item (the bowler hat) and you can open Alfred's preferences. Alternatively hit command-comma from the dialog box.
