Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. You know what, after spending a bit too much time on this time-saving automation, I believe that a less elegant backspace after 0.1 seconds is a wonderful solution. Thank you, so much for your help, @giovanni
  2. Wow, thank you so much for putting this together. This is incredible. However, it still adds a new line after pasting 🥺 Does it not for you when you use it with google docs? The problem isn't with my google account, I tried two. Does this occur when you try it? The problem does not occur in Pages nor TextEdit... Could it be a Google Docs idiosyncratic thing?
  3. It deletes the whole thing, not just the last character for some reason. Thanks, though. What about placing something other than rich text in the clipboard?
  4. Thank you! I just tried this and, unfortunately, the problem persists. It's as if Google Docs reads the clipboard, perceives an indication of "rich text" and adds a new line no matter what.
  5. Proverbially pulling my hair on this one: With a URL in the clipboard, I want an Alfred Workflow that pastes a link in Google Docs. More specifically, I want a static text to be used as the ~"body", the text should be clickable and clicking on it should open the URL. A basic link. I created a workflow that uses rich text formatting. And it works but when pasting in Google Docs, it adds a new line at the end. It could be that this is the way Google Docs treats incoming rich text from the clipboard. So, I'm wondering if I shouldn't use HTML instead. But I don't know how to make it so that Alfred pastes a link, not raw HTML. When I copy a link from a webpage, and paste it into Google Docs, it does not add a new line. What are my next steps here? How can I make this work? $ cat snippet1.rtf {\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\cocoartf2636 \cocoatextscaling0\cocoaplatform0{\fonttbl\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Helvetica;} {\colortbl;\red255\green255\blue255;} {\*\expandedcolortbl;;} \paperw11900\paperh16840\margl1440\margr1440\vieww10800\viewh8400\viewkind0 \pard\tx720\tx1440\tx2160\tx2880\tx3600\tx4320\tx5040\tx5760\tx6480\tx7200\tx7920\tx8640\pardirnatural\partightenfactor0 \f0\fs29 \cf0 [{\field{\*\fldinst{HYPERLINK "URL_TO_REPLACE"}}{\fldrslt Asana}}]}% What other elements would you need to help me break through? Thanks a million in advance. Long time user, first time poster Love Alfred and the community. Thanks for all your workflows, people!!
