Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. I would like to see a possibility to change Large Type to a layout with two (or more) columns. If you have a long text, the font size is quite small. It does not take a lot of words and the font size is to small to read. The effect is even bigger, if you use formatted text, like poems or lyrics. But there is a lot of space besides the text that is not used. Just add to the Large Type visualisation dropdown the two options: Fill the Screen (2 columns) Fill the Screen (3 columns) Or even better, the layout will switch automatically to a column layout, when the font size ist smaller than x.
  2. I made a very small Workflow with AppleScript. You can trigger it with the word "lyric" or by using the shortcut "alt + shift + L". It opens Large Type and shows the lyric of the currently playing song in iTunes. !!!Notice: It does not download any lyrics from the Internet, it just uses the lyrics you added to your songs in iTunes before (so you do not need an Internet connection). There are lots of tools, that add lyrics to all of your songs in iTunes in minutes (e.g. MassiveLyrics: http://www.creamdesign.it/massivelyrics-get-all-the-lyrics-for-your-itunes-library/) If you have any problems or suggestions to make it better, please let me know.

  3. Here is a theme in Yosemite Graphite Style. Spotlight with Graphite Style (you can change this in system preferences --> general --> appearance) looks like this: This is how the Alfred theme looks like: Download via Dropbox enjoy!!!
  4. Some introducing words: Sorry for my bad english. I made this as an extension for Alfred 1 about 3 years ago. It is a very complex extension, completely implemented with Applescript. So, it's way to much code for his functionality and often there are not very beautiful solutions. But I made this to learn Applescript and checkout the possibilities. I made an Workflow for Alfred 2 out of the extension, but some functions like the detailed growl notifications do not work anymore. But the main features still work. I have no plans to change anything on the workflow or in the code itself (but never say never). There will be many ways, to do it better. Feel Free to use the Idea and the code, to make a better workflow out of this. The Workflow: Quickmail offers the possibility to write emails straight from Alfred. You can define a subject, attach files, choose your Email-account, use the nicknames from address book for the recipients & much more. Besides you can use Quickmail to read new unread messages in a dialog without opening the mail app. You can also reply from this dialog. You have to make some definitions in the code, to make quickmail run. It is not very difficult (I made some comments on the relevant positions), but if it is the first time you see code, it will take some time to understand. You can do a lot of customization in the code. Quickmail supports multiple languages like english, german, french, spanish, italian. But most of them on a Google Translator level. But it is easy to correct the mistakes in the code, because all texts depending on the language are listed in a special part of the code. How to use: Attention: the examples will work with the default settings for characters, if you change them, you have to use the new ones of course. Simple Message: qm example@example.com*A subject*A message Message to predefined contact (you can define in the script code or in Adressbook (nickname) e.g. with shortcut "anna"): qm anna*A subject*A message Formating message with returns: qm example@example.com*A subject*Hi there,> this is a message>>sincerely,>your friend Add an attachment (attachment is the selected item or items in finder): qm anna*A subject*A message*# Send from a specific account, not standard-account (you can define in the script code e.g. "work"): qm anna*A subject*A message*work Send from specific account & add attachment: qm anna*A subject*A message*#*work Message without subject (quickmail generates from message or uses a predefined subject you can define in the script code): qm anna**A message Further you can use Read&Reply-Mode (This Mode shows you an unread message with the possibility of quick reply in a dialog): qm r --> quick reply messages can be formated too. Use Symbol: > Tip: It is extremly usefull to use the Alfred Large Type feature (Appearance-->Large Type) to check your text before sending. Screenshots: Download: From my Dropbox
