  1. I have seen too much hard work and good information lost when companies switched forum software (37 signals....), and there is such a wealth of experiences embedded in these boards, I’d be happier just sticking with what we have. Even with its flaws. One can always link to github or gist easily enough if syntax highlighting is really a problem.
  2. Actually it looks like the scripting commands are unchanged from Yosemite:
  3. Not sure I’ve tried it since the latest Ulysses update....send a pm to @robwalton he has been quite good about keeping it in shape.
  4. The workflow’s. See step 1 here: https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/OAuth2
  5. I think of Alfred and HoudahSpot as complementary - see I don’t remember exactly but I believe I built custom HS searches using Applescript described here : https://forums.houdah.com/post/alfred-workflow-9675606
  6. Yes I realised that too. I barely use it...but using the regular file selection action hotkey also works from within the Alfred file nav...which I didn't know until I tried that now...
  7. just put this in a script filter https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4509624/how-to-limit-depth-for-recursive-file-list#4509648
  8. Hmm....I have been using file filters to search folders forever so this doesn't seem awkward to me. But that's from search, not from Alfred's file interface. I added file actions wired to the existing keywords. In re: Finder tabs - to go further with controlling tabs is going to require a lot of UI scripting - and the challenge is that the active tab isn't revealed to AppleScript. "Close All Tabs but the Active One" can be simulated by the following AppleScript but it closes and opens so it's not so clean: tell application "Finder" set t to target of front window
  9. What's not working about the Script Filter approach? That seems like the easiest approach to me.
  10. Yes. I added an environment variable - it's set to use tabs by default since that's my preference. Adding the AppleScript to take care of the new tabs (embedded in bashfinder.sh) took all of five minutes. Trying to set the environment variable programmatically in bash took more than an hour and I gave up. So at this point you need to set it manually.
  11. Nope. You might be able to swing something with Bartender, to hide the actual Spotlight icon and create a menu app in Applescript that launches Alfred. But I would advise just using the keyboard to launch Alfred.
  12. Here's a crack at it: https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/11398-finder-scripts-including-opening-in-a-single-window/
  13. This is a workflow I've cobbled together from various sources, notably some modifications to https://github.com/NapoleonWils0n/bashfinder , which is actually a bash front end for a lot of AppleScript. It contains the following commands: fo - open a folder in the frontmost Finder window (also available as a File Action) fo:i - open a folder in the frontmost Finder window with Icon view (also available as a File Action) fo:c - open a folder in the frontmost Finder window with Column view (also available as a File Action) fo:l - open a folder in the frontmos
  14. Yes, I agree - keeping current or allowing selection of Finder views would also be a big help. There may be an AppleScript solution but I haven't worked on it.... I did look again at PathFinder briefly but am glad to hear your verification of my decision not to go that route
  15. You could add the keyword to add to pinboard to your fallbacks & set fallbacks to "Intelligently show fallbacks at the end of results" -- depending on "intelligently" that might bring it up every time.
  16. I can't remember where I first posted this, but .....Any chance of an ios keyboard in v2 with synced snippets?
  17. You could certainly use Alfred to launch such a task if it’s possible, but you’d need to see if it is possible — generally the Applescript support in MS Office is quite good if quirky, but I haven’t tried scripting OneNote.
  18. yes that was explained in the parens above but I agree, mailto: links will be better if you are using 3rd party mail clients
  19. Yes just create a workflow to run the following Applescript (this will send an empty message as written - you can delete the send command to send manually or add code before it to set the content). tell application "Mail" set m to make new outgoing message tell m make new to recipient with properties {name:"someone", address:"someone@somedomain.com"} send end tell end tell
