    How do you know what a direct link is

    Thanks. Your explanation is very helpful.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 managing the environment correctly.
  4. 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 it’s not as logical as I’d think it should be. I’ve heard though seasoned developers have a terrible time with AppleScript and actually don’t like it due to it’s syntaxing. However, it’s super handy with Alfred and if I don’t have workflows from the shared library the one’s I’ve done are all done in AppleScript so it does get the job done for me. Alfred is just a nice way to invoke those scripts and extend the power of Alfred out. Anyway, time to hang out around here more as this is the way to learn this stuff I think. Kerry
  5. 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
  6. 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:
  7. 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 signature "Kerry Dawson" end tell
  8. 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
  9. 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 doesn't pop to DEVONthink but stays put or is that not possible.

    Is there a way to disable the Clipboard

    Sorry Andrew and David. I knew that was David. I guess that had to be a Freudian thing LOL! Kerry

    Is there a way to disable the Clipboard

    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

    Is there a way to disable the Clipboard

    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 trick or if even Alfred is the one. It's tricky testing these things to isolate for sure which is causing the problem. Thanks David
  13. I was wondering if there was a way to disable the clipboard. I don't see an option for that.
  14. 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.
