  1. Wow, thank you. I can't believe you found it! I will start looking through Rob Trew's posts on all of those platforms. Thank you, also, for the advice. I will pursue the AppleScript path. In fact, I think I should regardless of whether I find a working script for this so that I won't be so stuck again in the future if something breaks. I don't use TeX at all, either. I just love how quick, accessible, and open BibDesk is. My goal is to move everything to plain text, stored in my university-provided cloud, and indexed/processed in DT. I couldn't find a suitable alternative for DT;
  2. Thank you for the working script for exporting to markdown, @dfay. I'm wondering how difficult it would be to change this script for my own workflow. My goal is the following: Export into separate markdown files for each annotation. Ideally, these would be named automatically, for e.g., using the first 5 words of the contents, and placed in a folder named by the pdf name. Include the name of the colour of the highlight from Skim in each file (so it can be used to filter/process them). Include the link back to the PDF in each file. I know it was mentioned that th
  3. Thank you; I will try that! Just spent a good chunk of time doing this manually. Edit: And it works! I must have missed an update. This is literally the best day ever.
  4. I really miss this workflow. Has anyone been able to find a workaround or alternative solution?
  5. It's amazing!! Works great!! Thank you so much!!
  6. Hello, I just found out that this workflow doesn't work if you use brackets () in the filename. I get this error in debug mode: [2017-01-30 12:59:29][ERROR: action.script] 15:16: syntax error: Expected “"” but found unknown token. (-2741) It's definitely a minor issue, and not necessary. But if somebody knows what's going on, I'd like to fix it if I can. Thanks
  7. Hi @robwalton! Thanks for getting back to me. I have tried the 'uo <search term>' option and it works - as long as Ulysses is already open. If Ulysses isn't open, then I get two "something went wrong beeps" (as I call them), and Ulysses opens but the open dialogue doesn't. Because of this, I deactivated that keyword because a lot of times I don't want to open Ulysses, especially if it doesn't have what I'm looking for. I guess my computer is slow enough that waiting for a program (even one as light as Ulysses) to open so I can re-do a search, and (potentially) close it, is fr
  8. I love this workflow! I've been waiting for something like this! Would it be possible to include a search of the contents of sheets (like ⌘O in Ulysses)? I don't always remember the title of my sheets
  9. I will admit to scanning documentation and being herded effectively by big scary warnings
  10. Ah okay, I was wondering how I missed something like that
  11. That fixes it! Sorry - I must have misunderstood that yellow "Important" box in the documentation. Thank you for your time and help!
  12. Thank you for fixing it! I was able to check out the examples and they are very cool! I put together a list of Cree phrases, just to try it out. The Excel file simply has Cree in column A and English in column B. I was able to create the new workflow, but got an error - screenshot attached. Here's the output from debugging mode: [2016-11-01 18:15:32][STDERR: input.scriptfilter] options=Namespace(docpath='/Users/katie/Dropbox/Apps/Aflred/Alfred 3/Cree Phrases.xlsx', sheet='1', start_row='1', subtitle_col='', title_col='1', value_col='', variables={}) ------ alfred e
  13. I think this is a really cool and useful idea for a workflow. I was trying to check out one of the demo's (Random Names) but I get a "fatal error". Screenshot attached. Here's what came out of the debugging mode: Starting debug for 'I Sheet You Not' [2016-11-01 14:15:24][STDERR: input.scriptfilter] options=Namespace(docpath='./Demo.xlsx', sheet='1', start_row='1', subtitle_col='', title_col='1', value_col='', variables={}) ------ alfred env vars ------- debug='1' preferences='/Users/katie/Dropbox/Apps/Aflred/Alfred 3/Alfred.alfredpreferences' preferences_localhash='e4d7f5380fa
  14. This is awesome - I hated clicking through those pages of icons. Thank you!
  15. I did a clean install (but I synced my Alfred settings) and it broke this workflow I got this error in debugging mode: [2016-10-07 09:13:03][ERROR: input.scriptfilter] Code 1: 0:90: execution error: mkdir: /Users/katie/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-2/Workflow Data: No such file or directory (1) I tried to change the scripts to point to Alfred-3, but that was not enough to fix the error. So I tried to re-install but the download link is missing I'm going to dig through my backups to try and get it back, but I thought I would post because people are missing out
  16. Thanks for letting us know! I think that's completely reasonable. Fortunately, the VPN/proxy crackdown hasn't affected me yet. Just hope it stays that way
  17. Thanks!! I've relied on your flix workflow for so long, I'm not aware of other sites. But I did find these three that seem to have the same functionality: http://www.moreflicks.com/ http://flixed.io/ http://unogs.com/
  18. I really love this workflow, but it has recently stopped working for me. I always get a message that there are no results even when I search for shows that I know are on Netflix. I used the debugging feature and saw that some cached data was searched and no results were found, so I reset the workflow. It still doesn't give any results :/ I'm posting the information from the log below. Any help would be appreciated! Starting debug for 'FlixSearch' [STDERR: alfred.workflow.input.scriptfilter] 20:40:54 workflow.py:2140 DEBUG Workflow version : 1.1.0 20:40:54 workflow.py:1543 DEBUG
  19. Thank you!! That was pretty easy, thanks to your clear instructions, and it's super helpful! I hated waiting to connect to different servers to check if something was available on Netflix. I've duplicated the workflow and changed keywords so I can check both countries Do you know what other country codes are supported? I tried to use UK or GB based on this wikipedia list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2 but it doesn't work. By the way, seeing the different images is awesome! Thanks for the update!!
  20. Thanks for this workflow! I've been waiting for something like this I was just wondering which Netflix country this searches? I tried to search for something that I know is listed in Canada, US, and the UK, and I tried switching my VPN to servers in those countries, but it doesn't show up in this workflow. Is there an easy way to switch the country? It would be great if this could somehow be used to check the availability in different countries.
  21. I'd be interested in setting this up a folder of ebooks I have - could you let me know how you did it? I changed the directory to my ebooks folder, but I'm getting an error that says the file is an invalid json file so apparently I did something wrong to it
  22. After your comment, I checked the template I had set up and you're absolutely right - all accented characters (and perhaps other characters) are not rendered properly. Thanks to your clear instructions, I set up your alternative method, and I can now copy and paste from the preview. The idea that the rtf template method doesn't work as expected, however, is just the kind of thing that will niggle at me until I figure out how to fix it This type of issue is why I've avoided latex - the "brief" start I made had me spending hours trying to work out the smallest of details. This is my method of
  23. Thanks for checking, Andrew! It sounds like a lot of work and, given that the benefits are so minimal, I can see that it's not worthwhile. But I appreciate you looking into it! I tried importing a reference into BibDesk with your workflow and it was incredibly easy. Haven't been able to set up the APA export though. I've installed tex, set the preview to apalike, tried setting it to copy as RTF. To get the reference to copy in the way you describe, did you have to use a custom template? For those out there who are new to BibDesk and want to take advantage of this workflow, this is how
  24. Andrew, Oh, I see what you mean. I'll think about whether using BibDesk is worth the time savings at this point. Thanks for you help and advice! Katie
