  1. Yes, I second deanishe..the idea of using snippet triggers is not a good alternative, at least not for me. On top of the reasons listed above, you also have to think of being able to export these things to work with another platform if you choose to go with another product in the future and, (AFAIK) snippet triggers can't easily be exported to be imported into another macro-like program I've done a bit of research and for my purposes (web code snippets with variable placeholders) Dash is the best choice out there, also gives you amazing offline documentation.
  2. Hi Vero, Thanks for the reply. My apologies for sounding a bit negative, but I've been juggling between Rocket Typist, Dash's code snippets and Alfred's snippets without any luck for some time. It seems to me a lot of work went into Alfred to make workflow creation easier and more robust, but snippets were left out in the cold. The dynamic placeholders within workflows seems to be the only way to achieve what I would need, but that means creating a workflow every time I need a snippet. The thought of organising my workflows that use dynamic placeholders is just mind-boggling. I think I'll just have to ante up and buy TextExpander. Appreciate your feedback and links.
  3. Not sure if this has been requested, but I was dissapointed to see that the "Snippets" feature was not touched in this last 4.0 update. I would love to be able to create snippets that interacted and requested info based on how you define it. For instance, if my snippet is defined as: "Your name is %name%", when executed, a prompt will request the %name% value and then paste the shortcut --> "Your name is Christian". I am trying to use RocketTypist to do this but it's buggy, this would be a nice addition to the snippet feature in Alfred, which I have found to be very responsive. Thanks!
  4. Love it, thank you! ☺️ (that emoji was pasted with your workflow ?)
  5. Thanks for the reply...I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
  6. I was ecstatic when I found a workflow to add the currently playing track any playlist of my choice. So fast and efficient! But, alas, the workflows out there do not seem to work with Apple Music. I have looked at AppleScript API for iTunes (god I hate AS) and the small proof of concepts I have made have failed miserably. Has anybody gotten close to doing this? I am so sick of adding songs to playlists like a mere mortal! Thanks! -Christian
  7. Would love to have a way to import snippets already created in other apps into Alfred? I'm thinking apps like aText, TextExpander, etc?
  8. Yes, this would be amazing to have, +1.
  9. Out of curiosity, why are you not using 1Password's built-in function for this? I have a key combo assigned to it, I type in the website and I hit enter, don't have to touch the mouse: https://www.evernote.com/l/ABAw_C74vWNFLLqLNahpxWnX2PRt_wxyYqIB/image.png
  10. I was looking for a way to switch to an airplay device using Alfred Remote. I found this script and modified it, then created two scripts within Alfred Remote and now I can switch between my airplay devices without having to use Remote.app at all! on alfred_script() tell application "iTunes" set apNames to (get name of AirPlay devices) set apDevices to (get AirPlay devices) set rez to "extender" --replace extender with your Airplay device name set apPlays to {} repeat with i from 1 to length of apNames if item i of apNames is in rez then set end of apPlays to item i of apDevices end repeat set current AirPlay devices to apPlays end tell end alfred_script
  11. Hmmm...what are your options for advanced?
  12. Not sure this is working anymore:
  13. Using v2.0.6(203) In v1, I chose an item in the Finder, pressed command+g and Alfred would pop up with the item I had selected in Finder in Alfred. Since I upgraded to v2, this does nothing, and I have not been able to find it in prefs anywhere. Help appreciated.
