  1. Hey @Luciano Santana, I love what you did with this workflow. Was thinking that it'd be nice to be able to trigger additional timers from the pop-up window...any ideas on how to accomplish that? Would it be easy to assign additional buttons to the task(s)? For example, setting timer for '25 Are you still working?' and having the option to set an additional 25 min by clicking 'Yes' (context-specific) or '25 min' or whatever on pop-up window...
  2. I do recall that the window title is supposed to change. For me, it's not changing while holding Fn key, hovering with mouse, clicking, or any combination of those. It's really peculiar as I remember it working well when I first created my custom theme. As a last resort, I may try to reinstall Alfred and see if that resolves the issue. Thanks for the help, @Tsunami. Have a great weekend.
  3. Once upon a time, I was able to change the color of text selection in custom themes. Fn key seems to show selected text in theme window; however, the option to change color remains on 'font color'. Am I missing something here?
  4. Has anyone stumbled upon a timer workflow for Alfred that allows sticky notifications (without the use of Growl)? The ability to set multiple timers concurrently would be great as well. I found one that makes use of Hue lights, but... Thanks for the help!
  5. I'd like to auto-append my screenshots to a specified note in Evernote after clipping them. I have Hazel app, Alfred, & Keyboard Maestro at my disposal. Any ideas on how I could accomplish this?
  6. I like the idea of transforming inputs before passing them to a script. Is there a way to capitalize the first letter of a input AND add a period if one does not exist (prior to passing to script)? It would be similar to using the transform utility. I don't see an option for sentence capitalization. I use Alfred to append notes from OS X selections. Sometimes the selections begin with a lowercase character &/or is not punctuated. Any solutions?
  7. Hey, @deanishe So, tried to use the above script for a rather long 450,000+ character plaintext file containing my notes. Selected all text → triggered workflow → got an error (attached below). Is there a character or paragraph limit? It been working like a dream since you wrote it. Let me know if I can provide you with any other info.
  8. I keep a running list of quick-jots in Evernote. They are compiled by prepending text, separated by "––", to an already existing note (vs appending). Appending created too many spacing errors for my liking. I'm looking for a way to select all text (and inserted images) and reverse their order; in HTML preferably so that already existing font-styles are preserved. Example note content in Evernote: This item is noted here. –– Another item is noted here. - This is a bulleted item under previous note - This is another bullet –– Yet another item is here... ...and so on Any ideas or existing workflows?
  9. Doesn't appear that EN for Mac has a find and replace feature like the Win version. I have a number of notes that I'd love to replace some text on. Any ideas or previous workflows I can play around with?
  10. Does anyone know how to accomplish this OR know of an already existing workflow that I can tweak? Also very intrigued by the concept of opening a new window with a specific template...
  11. Auto-capitalization for new sentences is already a system-wide feature in OS X. It works for most apps. I use Alfred to append/prepend notes quite a bit. Would you consider adding a similar feature for Alfred's window? I suppose it could be accomplished within the workflow itself, but I thought I'd just throw it out there. Thanks
  12. @dfay I'd be interested in seeing what you have. I'm all about some Ulysses. Thank you for checking back.
  13. @deanishe Tested the workflow in the Kindle app; it works perfectly with 'hotkey + selection'. Maybe just an iBooks thing. Any workarounds for iBooks specifically? Also, because it was bugging me so much, I eventually figured out the bit about Alfred's 'append to file' output. Turns out I just had to add a physical return after the {query}. I feel so dumb for asking you about it.
  14. Strong work, @deanishe. I wish I had your python skills, Sir. I can only get Alfred to recognize input with 'hotkey + clipboard content' by first copying the text in iBooks. Were you able to pass input with 'hotkey + selection' alone? Also, Alfred's built-in 'append to file' output is great, but I can't figure out how to separate text with a blank line. Is there a python method I can tack onto the existing code? Side-note: I understand the appeal of argv. I like the simplicity, but what is the {query} equivalent for the argv input? Is it {argv}? Sorry for all the questions. I'm loving code way too much.
  15. When copying text from iBooks, pasting produces text + citation: I'd like to be able to copy text only from iBooks (sans the citation and quotes ideally) and append to a separate plain text file. Really, it'd be wonderful to utilize Alfred's hotkey and selected text function as an input. So, highlight text in iBooks, hit a hotkey, have the citation stripped, and text appended to a separate file for review. Thoughts on how to accomplish?
  16. @deanishe I think I figured it out. It came down to \n vs. \r (which appeared to be "newlines"). Is there a way to change the code to recognize either newlines or carriage returns? Also, at the risk of annoying you... Say I have a document like the example below. It consists of groups of text separated by a empty line. So, TEXT + \n \n + TEXT repeated. I'd be nice to highlight all content in the document and have the script search and reformat just the TEXT portions (if they contained carriage returns or new lines) while preserving the empty line between each 'paragraph' of text. I appreciate any help that you can provide.
  17. Suddenly stopped working. I don't know what's changed. @deanishe are there any fixes or alternative ways?
  18. I'm looking for a workflow that can combine multiple lines of plain text into a single line. I guess it'd be similar to a 'reformat paragraph' function. If a workflow would be difficult, are there any plain text apps that can handle that function?
  19. I think I'd be great to toggle magic mouse scrolling with Alfred. I can't be the only one that knows how annoyingly sensitive scrolling can be in certain applications.
  20. You, Sir, are the man. I'll give this a try. Thank you
  21. Big fan of Apple Music (iTunes). Not a big fan of switching windows each time I feel the need to "Love" a song or add it to My Music. Is there not a workflow that accomplishes either of those tasks? Would someone be interested in creating one? Thanks for the help.
  22. Apparently, you find the required sheet identifier using the iPad app. That's kind of dumb. I guess I'll suffer until the developers add Applescript support or an API.
