  1. You could just make a copy of the themes directory inside your Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle.
  2. In this case, I imagine checking the file belongs to the user (and that they have write permission to the destination in the case of Move) would identify the vast majority of situations where Finder is going to ask for authentication.
  3. I'm afraid you probably can't search email: Apple blocked 3rd-party apps from doing that in Catalina.
  4. TIFF's a complicated format. I'm sure it supports JPEG compression, amongst other things. You should be able to use the string public.jpeg
  5. For workflows? If you’re going to release it, today I’d recommend hardcoding /usr/bin/python3 and calling it “Catalina and later only”. Perhaps use export PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin python3 myscript.py "$1" to allow it to fall back to a Homebrew Python 3 on older OSes. I’m generally a fan of hardcoding the system version of Python, so you know what you’re going to get. You never know what other people have symlinked to /usr/local/bin/python3, and it'll likely be you they ask for help when your workflow doesn't run on some weird, stripped-down Anaconda Pyth
  6. I forgot to answer the actual question… The workflow doesn’t ask Alfred to open URLs, it performs all actions itself using built-in scripts, which is presumably why Choosy isn't working. You need to add a custom script to open URLs in Vivaldi (or whatever), and set that as the default URL action in the workflow’s settings.
  7. My Mac Pro died, and the new iMac has Catalina, so I do have 14 now. Apple removed the ability to use extensions, which made Safari useless to me. They've added support for some WebExtensions APIs, but it's still half-assed. So I switched to Firefox and wrote Firefox Assistant to replace this workflow.
  8. Glad you figured it out. Is that script right? You're putting the JPEG data on the clipboard as TIFF data.
  9. You’ve actually hardcoded /usr/local/bin/python3: query=$1 /usr/local/bin/python3 ansible.py ${query} FWIW, there’s little point in using /usr/bin/env in a workflow. Mac apps don’t use your shell environment, so /usr/bin/env python3 is basically always going to be /usr/bin/python3.
  10. Generally speaking, no, you can't tell Alfred to use a different browser to your default one. Neither globally nor for specific features. You can specify a different browser in a workflow, so if there are just a few you want to open in Brave, you could recreate them in a workflow (it's only a Keyword plus an Open URL). Choosy might also be worth a look. You can set that as your default browser and have it send URLs to any browser you like according to your own rules.
  11. Hi @sosaveme, welcome to the forum. I don't know what the exact pattern is, but I can tell you that it's not Alfred. Alfred just asks macOS (or an application) to open a link. How the application behaves (new tab, new window etc.) is up to the application itself.
  12. That only works with text. You can't pass around binary image data in a workflow. If you want to manipulate images on the clipboard, you'll have to do it via Apple's APIs.
  13. Doesn't matter, I'm afraid. People will still add too many workflows and they will still add slow workflows, and then they'll write Vero an email asking why it doesn't work. I'm sorry, there isn't really a balance to be struck. For a feature to be considered, the risk of misuse or misbehaviour must be basically zero. The Alfred team just doesn't have the capacity to be fielding an extra bunch of support requests, and you can't make trade-offs when you've nothing to trade with.
  14. What about activating Alfred with a different hotkey? I ask because F-keys can be a bit special. It might be some weird edge case.
