  1. Hi, as far as I understand, the only option to perform operations on multiple files now in Alfred is to add them to buffer first. If would be helpful, especially for folders containing a lot of files, if files already added to buffer would be marked with colour in the file browser.
  2. I may have found the culprit. It seems that High Sierra rolled over the system version of ruby, where gems which a lot of workflows rely on, were installed. Have to test them with a debugger switched on one by one.
  3. I can confirm this issue. Obviously, it has nothing to do with single workflows, since it is affecting all of context-aware workflows. But as far as I noticed, this bug was introduced in Alfred 3.5 and has nothing to do with High Sierra. Can't say something more specific about timeframe, since I am mostly LB user and start Alfred only once or twice a month.
  4. Hi guys and girls, I have a couple of questions related to workflows. I want to do a workflow which should be able to distinguish between types of selected objects - text, folders and files. Based on type it should perform different actions. How does a argv object internally looks like? Does it even provide a mime-type information or converts everything to text? How can I properly debug workflows? With built-in debug I get only the output in the console. Is it possible to have a look into the argv object structure or set breakpoints in scripts?
  5. Actually, I've found another Wf addressing this issue: Autocomplete is missing, but it can be activated via actions menu. Still, such a feature should be a standard.
  6. Hello, I am a longtime Launchbar user, trying to get used to Alfred. I've noticed, that the quit command in Alfred is extremely limited. It basically allows you to quit only apps running in the Dock. If I want to quit an Application running in the dockless mode it is of no use. I would expect to have maybe the Applications running in dock in the suggestion list and get the rest of the running app by, let's say, autocomplete. The workflows I found so far are suffering from the same limitation.
  7. Ah, thank you. That's it - the Workflow works again For other readers: You have to change following things to make it working in Alfred 3: 1: in the file workflow.scpt change the numbers marked bold to "3" set my _cache to (my _home) & "/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-3/Workflow Data/" & (my _bundle) & "/" set my _data to (my _home) & "/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data/" & (my _bundle) & "/" 2: in the file nf_01.scpt change the line tell application "Alfred 2" to «event alf2Sear» "❊ new folder " to tell application "Alfred 3" to search "❊ new folder "
  8. I am pretty new to alfred workflows. Can anyone tell me, what this alf2Sear is? Is it an internal handler? Where is it documented? The error seems to appear in this script file: on run argv set wf to load script POSIX file (POSIX path of ((POSIX file ((POSIX path of (path to me)) & "/..") as text) & "workflow.scpt" as text) as text) set wf to wf's new_workflow_with_bundle("com.sztoltz.newfolder") set sArgv to argv as text set someSource to {} if sArgv contains tab then set {TID, text item delimiters} to {text item delimiters, tab} repeat with i from 1 to the number of text items of sArgv set end of someSource to text item i of sArgv end repeat set AppleScript's text item delimiters to TID else set end of someSource to sArgv end if wf's set_value("alf_files", someSource, "settings.plist") tell application "Alfred 3" to «event alf2Sear» "❊ new folder " end run
  9. Hello, I've done a test run with Launchbar 6, which I trashed after a couple of days because of huge memory usage and workflows ins Alfred. However, there is a feature, which I would like to see in Alfred... Ability to copy an item or piece of text and to pass it to another application or service/workflow. How would I do it in alfred? Is there a placeholder for the most recent content of a clipboard and a way to use services on it?Alfred seems to be very workflow-based, which is a good thing. But many of those workflows would be obsolete, if we could "chain" files/selections and perform actions on those with apps and services.
  10. When I try to import the workflow, I get the following text: Incompatible Workflow This workflow was created with a newer version of Alfred. Update Alfred to the latest version (or pre-release) to use this workflow.
  11. Well, I guess, I need some help with that - don't even know, how to start Any thoughts to enable it as default search options in the next version of Alfred? Maybe as an option?
  12.

Spotlight does.
  13. I have noticed, that alfred is unable to find some pdf documents. This is not a spotlight-related issue, since I've let it rebuild the index and spotlight, in fact, finds those documents. All the extra options, like "find" or "open" don't get any results. ~/Desktop and ~/Downloads are in search scope. Search for "Documents" is enabled in "Default Results". This may be an issue with tags in pdf documents, because alfred is able to find other pdf documents in the same folder, but, as I said, those are not a problem for spotlight. I run alfred v2.2 with powerpack on the latest Mavericks. If you contact me, I could send you those documents per email. Sorry, but I can't leave them in public access, since those are scientific publications, normally behind a paywall, so there could be trouble.
