  1. Thanks Stephen. However, I noticed a couple snippets didn't copy over to the other machine. Nothing machine specific just a snippet that plugs in my email address.
  2. Is there a way to have a date placeholder in Snippets that shows the month, Day, Year as '082221'?
  3. Is there a way to copy your Snippets from one computer to another?
  4. Hey @Andrew Ive done the re-indexing thing and didn't help. The shop I took it to did the Terminal shortcut and it helped for a bit but then the issue came back. I'll try the 'spotlight V100' thing but am not optimitistic.
  5. Anyone with Big Sur having issues with their indexing always 'indexing/bouncing back and forth?' I ask here because I've had a problem with my Mac Mini M1 always indexing. I've gone through the phone calls with Apple, taken it to a repair place but just can't get it to stop. The latest Senior advisor suggested (among other things) uninstalling Alfred as it relies (or at least, modifies) Spotlight. He didn't seem to think that uninstalling Alfred would fix it but I wanted to know if anyone else here has had similar issues. I've uninstalled Alfred and it's still indexing so....meh. Big Sur 11.2.3
  6. I migrated my macbook pro to a new Mac Mini (M1) and added the PowerPack to the Mini's Alfred but some stuff isn't quite right. For instance, it won't see an app I type the name for until AFTER I've gone to the applications folder and opened it with the mouse.
  7. Thanks. I'm hesitant to try anything that involves code unless I KNOW it's safe. That's why I ask here.
  8. I posted about needing to eject an external hard drive here but it has been marked 'solved' but I need to eject MORE THAN 1 external drive now. Do I modify that was posted in my original post? How do I do this? Thanks
  9. So I need to close 2 external hard drives with this. Can I just add "eject 'Volumes/DISK2?"
  10. Is there an Alfred work flow that can accomplish the same tasks that Hazel can do?
  11. I have a workflow setup to open a few apps with a keyword. Is there a way to add to the workflow something that will close all those apps down when I'm done?
  12. Looks like Duti is installed (via homebrew). So how do I incorporate it into a workflow?
  13. Cool. Will try that. I'm not familiar with loading command-line tools. How do I install this zip package?
  14. So this may be a stretch. But is there an app/code (or Alfred workflow) that would automatically change my Mac's default browser? I ask because I use Edge for work 🤨 and Firefox for home and I'd like something to preferably change my system's default browser to Edge in the morning and then back to Firefox after I'm done with work stuff. Maybe a program that switches based on time of day? I know, i know 'just switch it in each browser's preferences' but something going behind the scenes would make my workday a little easier. Thanks
  15. Does Sandwich Timer have a stopwatch function?
  16. Is there a workflow I can create that would allow me to start and stop a stopwatch/timer? I use Apimac Timer but would like to be able to just initiate Alfred instead of searching for the app and mouse-clicking the start button.
  17. No, I haven't updated to Catalina. Waiting on more of my apps to update to 64bit.
  18. Been using this workflow since @vitor provided it but now it's launching the app a SECOND time when I use this workflow. For instance, I'll already have a workflow that I use to open some sites and apps which include Reaper (DAW). Here: That workflow will launch everything just fine. I'll do my work and midway through I will do the 'Eject Disk' Workflow, seen here: But when I do the 'Eject' workflow it will launch 'Reaper' again and I'll have 2 windows for Reaper open. Any idea what went wrong here? Thanks
  19. Got it to work for 'eject.' is there a reverse method to 'mount' the drive?
  20. Thank you Vitor. Apologies for not being specific. Don't know if it matters at this point but the app is Reaper (Cockos). It's a DAW for music and audio.
  21. I have an external drive that I only use for an app-specific task (recording audio). The drive is located in a semi-incovenient place so I sometimes forget to unplug it when I'm done. Is there a workflow I can create to eject the external disc when I close the app? Thanks!
  22. Vitor, Thanks so much for getting back to me. I did some more digging on the Alfred website and found my answer here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/start-your-day-workflow/ I just built that workflow and modified as I went along. Done! Sorry for the 'newb' question. I've actually been using Alfred a while but am just now trying to get into some more intricate uses with it. Side question: Are there video tutorials? Thanks again
