  1. Thanks very much for the reply...the reason I recalled it working was of course because it does, naturally. The reason it's not working for me is not entirely known but is related to using Synergy with my Mac in client mode. When I open the lid and drag an item with my trackpad it works as expected. A bit of a Doh! moment, but it's such a rare occurrence, it hasn't come up very often and I'm generally using my MacBook as a Synergy client.
  2. This is driving me nuts. Sometime in the past I feel like I was able to drag and drop Workflow Objects (up and down) in Alfred, but it's eluding me. I've tried ⌘, ⌃, ⌥, ⇧ in practically every combination + dragging, and up/down arrows. In the mean time I've taken to editing the info.plist files. Finding objects, then linking them via their uid (eg. 48A46073-4B6E-4C2E-AB2B-A18169383256) then editing their ypos is laborious. It's rare when I need it but sometimes I need it, eg. when adding multiple modifiers, connections start to overlap and can start becoming hard to click. Someone tell me there's a better way and I'm a big dummy for forgetting it. I beg you.
  3. So I'm a bit of a tab hoarder. I usually have three or four windows open, each with 5-10 tabs. I often have a YouTube video playing on one of them, either a podcast of sorts, or playlist with music, even just random videos of stuff I'm researching. If I restart Chrome or OS X I'm often presented with 3 or 4 (sometimes more) YouTube videos playing at once. Chrome has an awesome way of helping me find the noisy ones by showing a speaker icon on the tab, but when I've got multiple windows going on multiple workspaces, or even minimized windows, it can be quite the treasure hunt. Do you know of any way to list tabs that are marked as "playing audio" by Chrome in an Alfred workflow? I can tell it's not just a wingding or something added to the title because when I see those tab names in Alfred, they don't have any type of playing symbol. I would imagine it would be some magical, undocumented AppleScript command if it's possible at all. Oh, and obviously I can just Alfred "tabs youtube" but the secret noise is not always a YouTube video. The worst offenders are news sites that autoplay a tiny video. Sometime I open a few articles I want to read in new tabs, then get side tracked and a minute later the video(s) load and I can't find them easily.
  4. That's a good point. I translate a lot of languages, pretty often so it's rarely already on the one I want. Google is right 9/10 times which is way more times in a row than I'm likely to translate a single language. I mostly wanted to share it but since it's not a workflow specifically, I lumped it in here with the icon.
  5. I edited the icon to have a white border so that it's visible in the black. I figured I'd put it here for anyone that wants it. Old: New: PNG here:
  6. It would be nice if the included translate keyword went to the auto url instead of whatever state Google Translate was last in. I've made a new Web Search keyword to replace it on my machine, but I assume the vast majority of users would want the same functionality. So my main feature request is as simple as... Change this: https://translate.google.com/?text=old To this: https://translate.google.com/#auto/en/new I also found a Google Translate icon to replace the generic Google icon: PNG here:
  7. I too was wondering about this. I haven't dug too deeply but the autocomplete functionality is essentially broken but also completely unneeded. When searching for a tag "todo": .tagged tod ...Alfred's already filled with files matching any tag starting with "tod" (on my system, only the "todo" tag). Hitting TAB at this point autocompletes the first item's file name; I believe since it's a filefilter the item is treated as a file would be - which autofills "Grocery List.txt" intending to search for a tag with that name. In any case, the only reason you'd need TAB to autocomplete to the intended tag is if you were looking at multiple tags starting with, as an example, "tod" maybe like "todo" and "today". If that were the case, how would you expect TAB to react? Autocomplete the one with more files, or the one most recently used, or most frequently used? Any, I don't see a huge need for the tag autocompletion. ...what I would LOVE to see (FEATURE REQUEST!) is the ability to search for file/folder names that are tagged with X. The theoretical format would be like this: .tagged todo grocery list Now I'm not sure if OS X allows spaces in tags, I'll assume it does, so some sort of delimiter is probably needed in my example between "todo" and "grocery" - the colon is a likely choice since that can't be used in filenames. Ironically, I just realized it would be useful to have tags autocompleted for this operation. .tagged to[TAB]do: grocery Anyway. Thanks for all the work you've put into this workflow. It's been great to use!
  8. I had the same issue. It has to do with some changes in Ruby 2.0 which now ships with Maverick....I don't actually really know to be honest. I did some Googling and tried a bunch of stuff real quick; it's so rare that a quick copypasta based on skimming stuff works. I found the fix on stackoverflow (of course): change line 1 of get_recent_folders.rb to require_relative "alfred"
  9. Great idea! I usually just struggle in the calculator until I get the answer that looks correct. I have a few thoughts on how it would be more useful...for me at least. A. The wording seems to be incorrect. "3 percent of 100" is indeed 3, but if you type "3 of 10" (which, in your wording would be "3 percent of 10") you get 30, presumably 30% - which is wrong of course. I suggest you change the example wording to "What percentage of 100 is 3:" or to keep the order and English correct, "3 is what percentage of 100:" and the subtext with the answer could be renamed to "Percentage of" to differentiate it from... B. I expected, and would find useful, the ability to do exactly what your example text suggests: find out what 3% of 100 is. Or to make the examples more clear, what 3% of 10 is: 0.3. A command could be as simple as "3% of 10" - note the % symbol after the 3. The subtext of this would more accurately be "Percent of". Because of some of the confusion, I think it would be a good idea to add a % symbol to the answer where applicable. Since you're not using copy to clipboard anymore, I don't imagine that would be a burden on anyone. And with all the new features being added and proposed, I think it would add a lot of clarity when trying different formulas. New feature: I also made a new icon so it's visible in the black: Alone here: FYI, if you delete the 3rd argument on line 92 of percent.py, it will use the % icon above for completed calculations. (I'm not sure if you intended to use the info icon. I prefer the percent symbol the whole time, but don't really care.)
  10. Awesome workflow! Thanks very much for sharing.
