  1. importSnippets.py is looking for a csv with the snippets in it - it sounds like you expect it to act on your .textexpander file, which it won't do by itself. If you run it on the blank file you created with touch, it won't create any output - that's expected. You should use https://github.com/derickfay/te-to-alfredCSV or the like to convert your TE files to csv first.
  2. This is still available at https://web.archive.org/web/20140112221120/http://tedwise.com/files/Running.alfredworkflow though after playing with it, I'd recommend this instead:
  3. Given that the OP wanted to know I'd recommend typing out the full unicode number for every character....
  4. Alfred's search interface is designed to not act until you hit return - you can get finer grained results through filters but you'll need to hit return to trigger an action at the end. I requested something similar but no interest apparently.
  5. Unless you're going to be regularly producing new templates and really need to search dynamically, I'd use a List Filter.
  6. Here's what I use - called from a keyword with space & argument required, in a Run Script object set to osascript (AS) with input as {query} on run set theQuery to "{query}" tell application "HoudahSpot" search theQuery template POSIX file "/Users/username/Library/Application Support/com.houdah.HoudahSpot4/Templates/templatename.hstemplate" activate end tell end run
  7. Nice - it evens finds my custom AppleScript applet for adding backlinks from Ulysses to BibDesk (not really surprising, assuming it's reading the LaunchServices database, but cool nonetheless):
  8. Sorry OT but has Quicksilver been maintained in the last decade? I thought it had been abandoned long ago.
  9. This thread started out with a complaint about an issue which does not actually exist. Yes, the UI is old and probably predates the widespread use of URL schemes on MacOS, and hence might be confusing if you haven’t tried calling a URL scheme from Alfred. But why not try it and see what happens before posting criticism? I suspect that’s what put people off.
  10. No, the OS handles it (via LaunchServices), and sends it to the registered app for the URL type. You can test this by typing craftdocs:// into Alfred and then into Safari - when you call it directly from Alfred the app opens straight away, when you call it from Safari, you need to confirm that you want to allow a web page to open the app. More details here: https://kaihao.dev/posts/Make-your-own-custom-URI-scheme-resolver
  11. Thanks Vero. The tagging approach in the link you posted also works - I had tagged all the app libraries with UsedByApps to enable easier sorting in Finder, and realized that if I search tags u, all the corresponding Document folders appear in Alfred: and you can then action them as ordinary folders.
  12. But the contents are, at least in my setup, which has ~/Library/Mobile Documents in the search scope.
  13. One alternative I just figured out is to create an alias to the folder App Library. The alias will be found by Alfred even though the original will not. Update: on further testing this works with native searching, but not with workflows that act on folders.
  14. If you look at the metadata the kind of these is “App Library” not “Folder”. But I’m not sure if that will help with a solution - I set up a targeted workflow as you describe for ScanBot & it still works despite the app name changes. I just tried dragging one into a file filter and its kind is as if it’s a folder even though it’s not.
  15. Look at the AS dictionary for Alfred https://macscripter.net/viewtopic.php?id=24777
  16. I'm not really sure what you're asking. Here's what my setup looks like:
  17. That script was by automation legend Rob Trew - he's still active on the DT forums as houthakker and on GIthub here: https://github.com/RobTrew/tree-tools and/or @complexpoint on Twitter. But I can also take a look in the next few days at what you're trying to do - I also use BibDesk. BD & Skim & DT allow for more through automation than any other combo. of apps. I can think of, so it's well worth learning AppleScript if you're going to work with that combo. (In fact I don't use TeX at all but I use BibDesk just because of its scriptability...).
  18. Updated for Big Sur / Keynote 10 at https://github.com/derickfay/keynote-to-pdf
  19. Oh I see, thanks. I was hoping it would (and thinking that logically it should) be a matter of granting an app permission to access Mail but no such luck.
  20. HoudahSpot has added a Mail plug-in that lets it search Mail when Mail is running - in Big Sur at least, not sure about Catalina - @Vero do you expect something similar in Alfred's future?
  21. This is the most comprehensive article I’ve seen on the topic: https://scriptingosx.com/2020/09/avoiding-applescript-security-and-privacy-requests/
  22. You just need to find command-line utilities to call for these tasks (LAME, sox , ImageMagick, VLC, textutil, etc.) and then stick the commands into file actions. There are workflows here but they are oldish e.g. But the approach would be the same.
  23. I got my 1.0 license 9 years and a few weeks ago. Not sure how long I was in the beta before then.
