  1. Excellent, thanks. I will (probably) mostly use this to grab a quick reference for an email, so the restriction to APA format is not a big deal.
  2. Thanks! I was in the same situation - I had Services, BibDesk applescript, OnMyCommand commands, etc. but a lot of them were context-specific and in locations that didn't sync from one computer to another, so an Alfred workflow seemed like the perfect way to put it all in one place.
  3. This is a real time-saver, thanks again. Would it be possible to add an option to harness BibDesk to produce a formatted citation on the clipboard? (through a modifier key or separate command). This should just involve adding a few lines to the applescript that calls BD set thePub to selection of document 1 export document 1 using template "template name" to clipboard for thePub
  4. what database(s) does this search? never mind...just saw the read me. This is pretty sweet.
  5. This update has fixed my problem - it gives me the full list of mailboxes. Thanks for continued work on this. I think the improvements you propose are right on track.
  6. Updated August 24, 2018 This is now a single workflow -- there are hotkeys for the following five actions: Uppercase Lowercase Capitalize - capitalizes all words (e.g. Posting A New Topic In Share Your Workflows) Title Case - capitalizes word except for "the", "in", "of" etc. according to American English title conventions (e.g. Posting a New Topic in Share Your Workflows) Sentence Case - capitalizes only the first letter of the first word & converts the rest to lower case All of these are set to Copy to Clipboard and Paste by default
  7. Hi Pedro I've been playing with Mail Act-On a bit, but don't like the interface, so I'm hoping for this workflow.... I tried running getList.scpt in Applescript Editor (uncommenting the line ' --set Opt to "bill" ') and the result was correctly formed XML with the relevant matching mailboxes correctly. And as I mentioned before the file ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Workflow Data/com.palobo.mailactions/ looks like it has a complete list of my mailboxes. Likewise if I run getUnread.scpt in Applescript Editor. It returns an XML formatted list of my mailboxes with unread messa
  8. This is how I've set it up: keyword -> Launch Apps / Files (with my selected files) -> Run Script where the script is Language: /usr/bin/osascript and the script is as follows: tell application "Moom" arrange windows according to snapshot named "MyLayout" end tell This assumes you've set up a Window Layout Snapshot in Moom called "MyLayout" & which is appropriate for the selected files. I've set up custom snapshots on all three of my machines for the optimal workspace layout based on screen size. Since Moom prefs. are local to each machine (and hence custo
  9. Thanks for following up. error.log is Zero bytes and empty. 300 mailboxes are probably an artifact of the old days before rapid full-text searching, when anything that wasn't filed could get lost... - just checked and the oldest message is from 1997
  10. anthropologist seeking ways to improve academic workflow

  11. I'm having the exact same problem ("Generating Mailbox List" forever), with about 300 mailboxes in three accounts. If I look at ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Workflow Data/com.palobo.mailactions/mbCache.plist , it looks like it has a complete list of mailboxes and accounts. But the "Generating Mailbox List" message doesn't go away, and I can't actually execute any actions.
