  1. I am using from Skydrive what appears like a direct link from Skydrive as the url ends in .png but the system isn’t seeing it as a direct link. I use Box.net for my Direct Links and they too end in .png. Many files don’t end in .png and they are definitely not direct links. What is a direct link.
  2. I was looking at this app and went to the app store to find it but could not. Then I realized that this is an Alfred app if I’m not mistaken. I use Desktop Groups which i think is the idea behind the app. I notice a fellow bought desktopshelves and I looked at it and it is strikingly similar to desktop group. I’ll have to read about this app and see if it can help with desktop groups. I’ve only done a quick cursory overview of the app but I think that’s similar to what I've noticed referenced here. There might be a role in this for me. I love desktop groups but I know I’m not managin
  3. Hey David, Thanks again. It's interesting you say that about Google as I use that all the time when I'm working on Applescripts. You’re right. You can find a lot. For some reason I couldn’t find this. I think it should be almost available somewhere as I looked high and low. I’m glad I’m not the only one that hasn’t found anything great to learn to AppleScript by. I think I have three books bought over time on the subject and I get to about page 100 and then I get lost. I can’t remember this from that. Even when you write an AppleScript I find for as English like as it’s supposed to be
  4. I now have the three accounts in Alfred as follows.: I think I should spend some more time over here. I might get onto scripting. I actually can't find a good method of learning AppleScript. it's better to try to put it together this way and then you get it. Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated. This will save a lot of time. Kerry
  5. Hi David, Thanks. This worked perfectly. I never would have gotten this. I have an icloud, gmail and outlook.com account I generate email from in Outlook. As an example, I wrote one like this:
  6. I'm trying to create a new message in Alfred using Outlook to be generated from a specific account and I can't figure this one out. I have the following working in Mail. Does anyone have any idea what I would write to get this to work in Outlook. As an example: Outlook - new mail message - from account ..... This is how I wrote it in AppleScript for Mail. Thanks tell application "Mail" activate set theMsg to make new outgoing message with properties {sender:"<ksdawson@icloud.com>", visible:true} set message signature of theMsg to sig
  7. I'm trying to create a new mail message in Outlook from a specific account and I can't seem to do it. I've tried: on alfred_script(q) -- tell application "Microsoft Outlook" activate set theMsg to make new outgoing message with properties {sender:"icloud (Kerry Dawson)", visible:true} end tell end alfred_script
  8. I've created a simple Alfred workflow using Applescript to invoke a Take Note menu command using Applescript. The command though jumps the screen to DEVONthink whereas I'd like the take note window to popup but in the location I'm at: The Applescript reads: on alfred_script(q) -- tell application "DEVONthink Pro" activate end tell tell application "System Events" tell process "DEVONthink Pro Office" click menu item "Take Note..." of menu "Tools" of menu bar 1 end tell end tell end alfred_script Might there be a better way to write this so it do
  9. Sorry Andrew and David. I knew that was David. I guess that had to be a Freudian thing LOL! Kerry
  10. Hey Andrew, Thanks very much. Yes, that's what I found and as soon as I turned it off when I clipped something nothing appeared in Alfred's history. So, that's exactly what I was looking for. Kerry
  11. Yes that seems to do it. Thanks. This other company that makes iclipboard felt one of my other programs that has a clipboard feature might be causing a problem with iClipboard. I seemed to isolate it to Alfred but I'm not sure. Anyway, I thought if I turn off Alfred's clipboard feature rather than not running Alfred I'll see if this supposed conflict is eliminated. The iClipboard people are saying that if I can isolate the clipboard software that is causing the interference then by not running it the conflict will go away. I don't want to not run Alfred so I'll see if this does the tr
  12. I was wondering if there was a way to disable the clipboard. I don't see an option for that.
  13. Markdown and Evernote I was curious about your use of Markdown and Evernote. I use both too. I kind of wish Evernote supported Markdown. What do you use for Markdown and how are you using these together, I know this is off topic but it sounds like you got your solution so I hope you don't mind the question.
