  1. I have used OneDrive with Alfred for 2 years. Works great.
  2. Yes you can set that as a hotkey in Preferences>Clipboard History. Of course, make sure that shortcut is not assigned to something else in Alfred (or to Spotlight). hope this helps g
  3. Thanks! To clarify, I am trying to convert an XML script filter to JSON and I was wondering about the appropriate way to generate dynamically a JSON object containing multiple items (from grep matches), and avoid the trailing comma. thanks again! giovanni
  4. Hi @deanishe may I ask what the correct syntax should be? I am trying to learn how to replace XML with JSON in my script filters (mostly serving the output of grep commands, typically multiple matches), and this from the OP seems to me similar to what is provided as an example in Alfred. Thanks for educating us newbies! G.
  5. This thread may be of help:
  6. Hi, Not exactly what you are after, but the workflow "Dynamic File Search" in the examples will search for files within specific folders. In your case, you would type "work" first, then "tasks" to retrieve the 'tasks' file in the 'work' folder. More info here: https://www.alfredapp.com/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-get-the-results-you-want-in-alfred-every-time/ I hope this helps Giovanni
  7. Hi all, The file path served in the subtext after a regular search is of course very helpful. However, especially for files in shared drivers, the initial part of the path can be long and take most of the space (e.g. '~/OneDrive - Very long hard drive name/Current Projects...', making the subtext less informative. I was wondering if there is a way to 1) abbreviate the file path to show only the end of it (e.g. .../Projects/myfile.txt), or 2) parse the file path string to replace some folders with '...'; or perhaps 3) show the subtext on 2 rows? Thanks!
  8. Hi @vitor, I am trying to do the same as the OP described, but both lists are thousands of items long. Is this a job for a script filter? To clarify, I have an initial List Filter, and I would like to grep a second large file for the Arg from the first Filter and serve the (parsed) output to the user in Alfred. Thanks! G
  9. Hi all, I am using a list filter to select and pass an argument (which is a URL), but once I select an item I would like to show the corresponding title and the subtitle in a notification at the end of the workflow. How do I reference them? In other words, I would like to save for future use not only the Arg variable, but also Title and Subtitle variables. Thanks!! Giovanni
  10. Quick update: this is now working on both computers. I have no idea what changed, I am happy to help troubleshoot if I can. Thanks again for getting back to me! Giovanni
  11. thanks @brunoc, yes I had duplicated it in the past, but left a single copy after reinstalling. I found a difference between laptop and desktop: if I force cache refresh in debug mode, I get this, on laptop only: [07:57:40.673] DEVONthink Browser[Script Filter] Queuing argument '(null)' [07:57:40.784] DEVONthink Browser[Script Filter] Script with argv '(null)' finished [07:57:42.174] DEVONthink Browser[Keyword] Processing complete [07:57:42.175] DEVONthink Browser[Keyword] Passing output '' to Run Script [07:57:42.337] STDERR: DEVONthink Browser[Run Script]
  12. 1) yes 2) this is what I get when I try 'dtp test' (no groups are shown in Alfred) [16:31:23.506] Logging Started... [16:31:26.957] DEVONthink Browser[Script Filter] Queuing argument '(null)' [16:31:27.068] DEVONthink Browser[Script Filter] Script with argv '(null)' finished Thanks! Giovanni
  13. Thank you @brunoc for creating this workflow, super helpful! Has anybody tried it across sync'd databases? I sync my DEVONthink database via a localsync store (and Alfred through a shared folder). The DEVONthink browser worked on both initially, but stopped working on my laptop. I reinstalled with no effect. Would you have recommendations on how to troubleshoot? Thanks! Giovanni
  14. Hi all, Is anybody else having issues with syncing? This is what I am experiencing after upgrading to Alfred 4 (I am using OneDrive to sync an iMac and a MacbookPro): changes (new workflows etc) are recorded in the shared preferences file, but in order to see them on my laptop, I need to close and reopen Alfred. When I do that, all the local settings (appearance, default hotkeys etc) reset to default. Perhaps something went wrong with the migration and I should try that again? Although I deleted Alfred 3. Other than that, Alfred 4 looks awesome! Thanks
