  1. (Warning: threads like this tend to become a spam target over time. Not that I doubt our visitors from Delhi with 1 post each, but…) My question would be what the OP wanted to convert to MP3. What format is the source material in? That’s the only way to get a useful answer.
  2. Have you granted Alfred "Full Disk Access" in System Preferences?
  3. Of course it hasn't done it again after I complained about it. This was after a fresh install, so I'm wondering if it was related to Spotlight caches being built.
  4. Alfred does not always seem to notice when I install new apps in /Applications/ I have tried typing the full name of the app into Alfred's search box, but it doesn't appear. Restarting Alfred did not help. Any ideas on what else to try? /Applications/Alfred 4.app: CFBundleShortVersionString: 4.0.5 CFBundleVersion: 1118 on macOS 10.14.6
  5. That's true, and Folder Actions are free (well, except for time spent getting them to work.) If you really wanted to nerd out, you could even use `launchd` and have it watch ~/Downloads/. I've found Hazel to be far more reliable and far easier for most folks to understand than Folder Actions. YMMV. I suspect that folks who appreciate Alfred would also love Hazel. It's well worth the asking price. (To be clear, I have no connection to the company, just a long-time happy user.)
  6. I'm not running Catalina, so I can't say this definitively, but presumably Preview.app is considered to be part of the OS, whereas Pages is an-app-made-by-app-not-tied-to-the-OS. To put it another way: you download Pages from the Mac App Store, whereas Preview comes with the OS.
  7. Ah. Well, I was unaware there was a way to do this in Alfred, so I've learned my new thing for the day.
  8. This is very simple to do with Keyboard Maestro. All you'd need to do is tell Keyboard Maestro that when you press the secondary keystroke to send the primary keystroke.
  9. Setapp is still able to insert itself into the Favorites in Finder, although I'm not sure how they are doing it.
  10. It’s good on all of your Macs
  11. I’ll echo this. I use Resilio Sync (which is a terrible name, but that’s beside the point) and it works very well. I use that to sync folders outside of Dropbox. One of the nice things is you can setup separate folders. For example, I sync /usr/local/scripts/ and ~/txt/ and ~/Downloads/ between my Macs, but my ‘scripts’ and ‘txt’ folders will continue to sync quickly even if ~/Downloads/ is syncing large files. Often times, Dropbox syncing a large file can prevent other files from syncing quickly. You can also use a “Selective Sync” which means you can see the files locally but only choose to sync specific files if you want them locally.
  12. I had actually done that with a similar utility that I use in Terminal, but found that I preferred having an actual temporary file to BBEdit's "sort of / kind of" temporary file. It also means that if I find that I want to retrieve something from a recently-closed temp file, I can usually find it. But it's good to have options.
  13. Someone just asked for this because the previous link is dead (I'm the worst). So here's a current link: https://files.luo.ma/alfred/bbpaste.alfredworkflow
  14. AHA! Now I get it. Resetting the 'scope' back to the default did the trick. Many thanks. I hadn't even noticed that those were different.
