  1. i get the same error on Mojave. does anyone know how to fix this?
  2. macOS Mojave 10.14.14 Alfred 3 v3.8.1 Hi, not sure if this is a bug or not. I seem to remember being able to 'flip through' multiple Quick Look instances of files while Quick Look was activated in Alfred. To clarify, when I view the contents of a directory or browse through the results of an Alfred query, it is my recollection that when invoking Quick Look in Alfred with the Shift key, the Quick Look instance of the highlighted file would show, and I would then be able to flip through the rest of the results while keeping Quick Look activated, effectively to see the preview of each file without having to press Shift for each file. Now, at least since installing Mojave, I need to press the Shift key for each file while going through the Alfred results, instead of using the ↑ and ↓ keys, as you can do in Finder. Is this a change in how Mojave now deals with Quick Look, as opposed to previous macOS versions, or could this be a setting I've changed? I'm not sure, I just know that my hands seem to have a memory of being able to do this :). Maybe it was never possible. Thanks
  3. rdn and rdo are now working, but rda and rdz are still showing hidden files.
  4. Thanks Vitor, I've successfully changed the Workflow Environment Variable in the .plist file. I would love to use this for directories in other volumes as well. I have many folders in which I frequently check the recent contents, but they are on '/Volumes/HDD/...' not '~/...' Any way you can modify the workflow to choose directory variables on volumes other than 'HOME'?
  5. Show list of TLD's or search for TLD's on Wikipedia v0.1 This is a second post following a recent post i made of a workflow i created in years past, titled 'Text / Filename Tools.' this is another simple workflow for identifying the origin of top level domain names of websites you may have visited or would like to visit. this uses the grep command in bash. to use, type tld then the website abbreviation you would like to learn more of. this searches a fixed list of known top level domains. if you type tlds, it will show you the full fixed list, and if you hold shift+enter, it will take you to the Wikipedia tabled list of Top Level Domains and their origin. The workflow is a bit slow. i am sharing it with the intention that someone may want to optimize it. i created the fixed list awhile back, so it will most likely need to be updated for all the new TLD's created in recent years. Please feel free to add to this workflow or alter it as you see fit. Download here: https://drive.google.com/top_level_domains.workflow
  6. first of all, I want to say I am truly grateful to this community. i have not been active in this forum throughout the years, but i am truly appreciative of all the great creators and contributors around here. what an amazing app, helps with my workflow each and every day. thinking of the Mac as a bicycle for the mind, it's interesting to note that one app inside the Mac can seem equally helpful at the same time. thank you. anyways, i want to share a couple of workflows i've created over the years. i'm not a programmer by any means, but do enjoy navigating the code that you guys create. i will share one workflow in another post, but for this one, this has been a very useful tool to me for repetitive tasks of file renaming. i've collected a number of bash functions to assist in switching file names with special characters such as hyphens, underscores, and periods, to spaces and vice versa. the functions are by no means polished, but they work well as-is. wondering if a programmer would like to use this as inspiration for a workflow that works better than the one i've created. if not, i think this will still help many of us. to use, copy the file name or text you want to transform, action the workflow through the keywords, and paste back to the file. keywords are first letter on the character with '2' in between for transformation. h2s h2p u2s one caveat, the functions i've used add a new line after each transformation. you'll have to backspace once after each paste. i was thinking this was one thing someone could fix. other than that, works really well! Feel free to build upon this or alter as you see fit. Download here: https://drive.google.com/filename_tools.alfredworkflow
  7. I think you're onto something. This is how the first script looks in another location I have it saved: The keystroke lines seem to be having a problem...and they're controlled by System Events. As far as I know, I didn't install any scripting additions on previous OS's. Maybe they were installed by another package? Are there some very common ones? set newIcon to (POSIX file "/Volumes/HDD/Sync/ICONS/ICONS/soundcloud.icns") as alias set theItem to (POSIX file "/Applications/Soundcloud.app") as alias tell application "Finder" activate set infoWindow to open information window of newIcon set infoWindowName to name of infoWindow end tell tell application "System Events" tell application process "Finder" tell window infoWindowName delay 0.3 keystroke tab delay 0.3 keystroke "c" using command down end tell end tell end tell tell application "Finder" delay 0.5 close infoWindow set infoWindow to open information window of theItem set infoWindowName to name of infoWindow end tell tell application "System Events" tell application process "Finder" tell window infoWindowName delay 0.3 keystroke tab delay 0.3 keystroke "v" using command down end tell end tell end tell tell application "Finder" delay 0.5 close infoWindow end tell
  8. I hear ya. And thank you for your good work vitor. I've used your workflows throughout the years, actually some that don't work either right now because they have osascript. I'll figure it out!
  9. Thanks, I will. I didn't mean to waste anyone's time. Just thought I'd ask here considering the regular use of applescripts involved in workflows, and because Alfred has such a strong community here :).
