  1. I have a strange problem. If Firefox is the active window when I invoke Alfred, then entering the letter p and waiting a fraction of a second causes the large text feature to activate and then get dismissed (along with Alfred). This happens with no other apps running, it happens consistently with Firefox in the foreground, and it happens even with Firefox in "safe mode" with all add-ons, etc. disabled. I am running OS X Mojave 10.14.3, Alfred v3.8 [959] and Firefox 65.0 Any thoughts on how I can troubleshoot this?
  2. I figured out the problem: it is a bug/problem with this Pinboard workflow: http://www.packal.org/workflow/pinboard The description says it works with Firefox but the README, and an issue report on GitHub, indicates a problem with these symptoms...though it appears there should be a workaround, that doesn't seem to be the case currently. All that said, it would be nice to be able to disable Large Text so this keyboard shortcut wasn't monopolized (or have an option to choose another key combo in Alfred)...
  3. Also, even stranger, if I use Karabiner Events viewer, it shows no events differently when this happens with Firefox as the frontmost app than it does when things are normal with any other app frontmost...so whatever is triggering it is not being seen as a keystroke event :)
  4. I'll try the 2nd user account test. In the meantime: It only happens when Firefox is the active window when I invoke Alfred It only happens when certain text is entered, particularly the letter p or, if type fast enough to get more characters in before large text is triggered, any word starting with p Even stranger, once it happens, the next time I invoke alfred, it seems that *any* text I enter has this happen ... and then the next time I invoke Alfred, all is fine (except the dreaded letter p :)
  5. Yes, but I'm experiencing the same problem with Karabiner and Keyboard Maestro disabled.

    TextSoap cleaners on the Clipboard

    Works like a champ! Thanks for the update!

    TextSoap cleaners on the Clipboard

    Thanks! You might want to look at this note for developers: textsoap8agent is being deprecated. It already is for SetApp users (like myself), so I ended up modifying all the scripts to refer to textsoap and textsoap.app ... which should also work with non-SetApp version of TextSoap as well! https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/textsoap/ZlHrMxu7T8k/x17JDUmSAgAJ

    TextSoap cleaners on the Clipboard

    Any chance that you'll publish the updated Alfred 3 workflow? Thanks!
  9. I can no longer find active download links for this workflow...is it defunct? If so, suggestions for another workflow? I found a good one for searching, but it has no features for adding links.
  10. I used ClipMenu for years and one option I sorely miss is one that sets the clipboard so that, when pasting, the order of the clipboard entries isn't change to move the most recently pasted to the top!

    Evernote Workflow 9 beta 3

    Same setup and this is happening *sometimes* to me as well.
  12. I can't figure out how to get the workflow to see my editor (MacVim, installed in /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/7.4-73, which has been added to the search scope in Alfred prefs). If I just invoke Alfred and start typing macvim or vim I can launch macvim just fine. But when I use editwith I get options for many applications but not macvim?

    YOURLS URL shortening

    Is there a working link to this script? I am looking for some code to shorten a link using Applescript and YOURLs...

    Evernote Workflow 9 beta 3

    I didn't realize prepending wasn't supported by EN! I would only be using such a feature for plain text notes.

    Evernote Workflow 9 beta 3

    A feature suggestion: could you add the ability to prepend to a note? I most often add things to evernote from Alfred where I want the most recent on top... I'm using a KM script for this right now, but it would be great to use Alfred!
  16. This workflow is AWESOME. I use the conversions for cooking and kitchen work dozens of times per day!
  17. This is a great workflow! But the unit conversions I need most are for cooking: teaspoons, tablespoons, cupts, quarts, pints... any chance you could have some of those in there?
  18. How can I assign a hotkey to an existing workflow? What I mean is, I have a pocket workflow that takes an argument of a URL and drops it into pocket. I'd like to be able to highlight a URL, press the hotkey, and have it drop that URL into pocket using (I think this is what I want!) the existing workflow.

    Clipboard "Actions"

    How difficult is it to create a workflow that wouyld allow me to search and select from the clipboard history and then perform the specified action? The nice thing about the other method was that the action was abstract and could be performed on any history item. I'm assuming it can be done, but it doesn't look easy (to me). I'll have to dig around in it. I still think it would be nice to have an actions option built into the clipboard
  20. Another feature I miss from ClipMenu: the ability to define custom actions. In ClipMenu I could use Javascript---and perhaps different languages, I never tried---to manipulate a snippet before posting. For example, I had actions to convert a snippet to a comma separate list, to convert case, etc. When pasting with a specific keypress or key/mouse combo I could select the action to be performed on the text before it was pasted. That would be great to have in Alfred! c
  21. I agree...this would be a very useful addition to Alfred!
  22. It would not only be nice if Alfred had a native way to index Firefox bookmarks, but if there were some way to index/use bookmark keywords. I know I can recreate the functionality by creating a custom search URL that is really just a link with the bookmark keyword as the custom search keyword, but it would be great to access the keyword without recreating scores of bookmark shortcuts!
