  1. Forgive me if this is a stupid question but I perused the help me stuff and didn't see an answer for this... Is it possible to add data or metadata to a file as I'm saving it? I do voiceover work so I'm auditioning a lot and I'd like to be able to mark some auditions (mp3) I send out for future use. My perfect world situation would be to create a file, name it 'FileA' for the audition file but as I'm saving it insert a trigger letter/symbol that would add more information (such as 'Great Read') TO THAT FILE so that I can find it later. Is this possible with Alfred?
  2. Works! Thank you Vero! Quick question. Is it possible to do snippets with formatting? (Bold, italics, etc.) Thanks again
  3. How do I update to a pre-release? I am at 3.1 and it tells me I have the latest.
  4. Was excited because it actually worked but excitement was quickly dashed (about 5 minutes later) when I tried the exact same snippet in same document and it DIDN'T work. Do I need to fill out a support ticket?
  5. switched over to different user, activated power pack, created a snippet, opened Pages '09 and the snippet did NOT work. hmmm
  6. It pastes as expected. I don't use any other clipboard/snippet managers. HOWEVER, I have been using Text Expander but closed it down while experiencing this problem. How do I create a second profile (user?) that can access Aflred 3 with the power pack?
  7. https://www.dropbox.com/s/uv11t4ybuo12e6z/Screen%20Shot%202016-09-08%20at%206.46.05%20AM.png?dl=0 haven't changed the Cmd+V paste command
  8. Is Alfred snippets buggy with the Pages '09 version? PS...I'm trying to embed a screen recording I did but can't find the right button here. Any ideas? recording here https://www.dropbox.com/s/zzu19umqtybqj2n/screenrecord-alfred%20snippet.mov?dl=0
  9. BUT. I noticed that some of them don't work in Pages '09 (version 4.3). Anyone have any idea why?
  10. FIGURED IT OUT. Looks like 'keywords' have to be lowercase. The ones that weren't working were ALL CAPS. Fixed! I'm a regular Sherlock Holmes over here!
  11. They were imported but only a few seem to be working.
  12. Not having success. I'll type 'swin' and nothing happens. https://www.dropbox.com/s/j50h3t4nffdchme/AlfredScreenSwitcher-screencap.mov?dl=0
  13. Is there a way to import the snippets I've created in Text Expander into Alfred 3's snippets? Also, how do I turn the off the sound it makes after typing out the snippet? Thanks
  14. I tried using 'open' and 'find' and was unable to locate this mp3. Will I have to setup a File Filter for mp3 now?

  16. I was able to reindex. 1. path: ~/Documents/Voice Jobs/Voice Submissions 2. Yes, this path is within Alfred's search scope. (Tried attaching a pic above) 3. Yes, spotlight shows the file in it's results.
  17. I was trying to find a file with the word 'hospital' in the name and Alfred was not turning up any results. I went through all the steps in reindexing and everything else found here but nothing works. In fact, when trying to rebuild the index Terminal just kind of hangs there on the screenshot I've linked. PS...how do I upload a photo as attachment here?
  18. crud. NOT power pack user. Does that mean I have to upgrade for this functionality?
  19. yes, power pack user. Figured out the problem. Alfred was trying to open a DIFFERENT template that had the same name. The different template is in another location ('Documents/blah blah templates for Pages') instead of the one I need (library/application support/Pages/Templates). How do I direct it to the right location?
  20. I have Pages '09 as my main word processor. When I try to open a Pages template (using Alfred 2) that I use quite a bit, it always tells me that the template is a file that needs a newer version (Pages 5) of the program I'm running. The weird thing is that when I open this template using a shortcut program called Overflow, opens normally and into Pages '09. Why is Alfred the only program that's not letting me open this template?
  21. Andrew, Really digging Alfred but he's not finding files for me. Applications are good and I'm able to open the file using 'open' but it's not finding it. For instance, I'm trying to find a file named 'haldouglas' and when I type it into Alfred and, after suggesting a couple contacts, it just gives me the 'search google, search amazon, search wikipedia' options. But when I type in 'open haldouglas' it shows me the file to open.
