  1. Thanks for posting this feedback, @gandalfsaxe! I agree ๐Ÿ’ฏ, it would be awesome to have the keyword displayed on Snippet Keyword results as well as the Snippet Hotkey screen. 90% of the time, I'm using the Hotkey because I forgot the keyword for some seldom used snippet. I realize I can just select the snip to have it pasted straight away, but I hit Escape and then type the keyword instead. Rationale: next time I'll remember the keyword by having forced myself to type it after having had to look it up. Even when using the Snippet Hotkey list, I'm not in love with the keyword being displayed in the lower-right of the result pane only when a snippet is selected. I'd prefer the keyword be displayed to the right or under the snippet (sub-text style). I'd also prefer it to be displayed at all times and not have to select the snippet to see it's keyword. This would save keystrokes by no longer having to arrow down after searching to get the keyword to display. As far as the Snippet Keyword, same deal. I'd vote for having the keywords displayed in the Subtext, to the right of the "Paste:" preview to give a quick glance at the missing (in my brain) keyword: Thanks for being by far my most used utility, Alfred! ๐Ÿ† Update: to preempt the likely inevitable reply "just put the keyword in the snippet name": - its OK advice if you received and start following it from the beginning of building your snippet collection and don't change your keywords too often, but I'm thousands of snippets in at this point - it seems like a waste of ongoing effort when the keyword values are available to the display templates for these screens (as evidenced by the fact that they already show up in the Hotkey window), I'm advocating for expanding that functionality (and adding it to the Snippet Keyword results) - most snippet collections don't follow this convention, so users need to go through and update each snippet by hand after import
  2. @mitchellm, thanks for letting me know about the dead link. not sure what went wrong but I reuploaded and have updated in my original post.
  3. Beautiful! Adding the natural language parsing makes this so much smoother than Quick Entry (and looks better!). (Hoping Omnigroup keeps this Applescript exposed in 2.0...) I added a Hotkey Trigger ("box") to the workflow so that I could access it via keyboard shortcut without even having to invoke Alfred. That also allows us to set the Argument field to "Selection in OS X". This pulls in any text you have selected before invoking the hotkey! Here's the workflow with that modification: New Omnifocus Inbox Task (Alfred imports Hotkey Triggers, but strips out the hotkey assignments, so you'll need to double click the hotkey step/box and press your desired hotkey. I used โ‡งโŒƒA which works well for the scheme _mk_ recommends for his OF Task Actions workflow.) Thanks everyone for your contributions to this workflow!
