  1. So no easy solution in AppleScript? It would be easiest if there was a solution here because the whole workflow is already in AppleScript. The guy did mention in the issue conversion that Firefox doesn't support Apple Script but apparently he found a solution and added a bunch of other browsers when he was at it.
  2. https://github.com/AndrewC-B/alfred-open-in-chrome/issues/1 Gave this a shot, but Apple Script is too damn obscure. The author seems too busy to fix it, and I gave it a few hours myself. It's basically just a workflow that opens a browser tap in another browser. The problem is, if the user doesn't have the exact list browsers installed, that is supported in the workflow, a dialog box always comes up when invoking the workflow. If anyone here is proficient in AppleScript expert you could probably fix it in a couple of minutes PS: If anyone could also add an
  3. Google has recently added an extra step to "I Feel Lucky" searches so you have to press an extra button, thereby defeating the purpose of the feature. Example: Anyone got "I Feel Lucky" Google search working again, so you can do it in one step? I'm not sure there is a working workaround. But if there is now or in the future, I hope someone will share it here.
  4. I would find it useful to be able to point to external locations for Alfred snippet files, for example to be able to separate personal/work snippets, where work snippets could be available only on a work machine.
  5. Hi, I'd like to see better grid snapping of workflows. Currently they snap to a very fine grid of 10 px (I think). I don't need that granularity, and would like them to snap to a much larger grid, like on the Windows or Mac Desktop (if you enable snap to grid). Over time, I've noticed that I spend needless time on fine-aligning stuff, when I really don't need that fine granularity. As per macOS conventions, you should still be able to get the current 10x fine grid when holding down ⌘ or something like that.
  6. @vitor Sure. As an example, I have an snippet with: Name: Happy - Owl Keyword: !owl Snippet: ⊙▽⊙ Pressing the Viewer Hotkey: It tells the keyword "!owl" in the lower right portion of the screen. If instead I invoke the "Snippet keyword" (which I've set to "s"), I get: I.e. no keyword "!owl", just the title and content of the snippet. It would be useful it this would show the keyword as well, either by default or by holding a modifier key.
  7. Hi, I sometimes forget the keyword for a snippet, but when I search for it with the snippet keyword (default is "snippet" I think), it only shows the snippet in a one-liner, not the keyword, so I never learn the keyword unless I look it up in Alfred Preferences or invoke the Snippet Viewer Hotkey. I'd love to be able to see the snippet keyword if I held in e.g. ⌘ key. PS: This is largely resolved by using the "Snippet Viewer Hotkey" instead of "Snippet Keyword", but I'd be nice to have both places.
  8. I just realized that I do this by adding a symlink to e.g. /Applications, and then just pointing Alfred to that. Problem solved I'll go with this solution, but if anyone happens to know the answer to my original question, feel free to leave it here for future reference 😊
  9. Hi, Is it possible to press a specified hotkey, and then have Alfred launch/hide app1, app2 or app3 depending on whether the hostname on my current machine is machine1, machine2 or machine3? The use case would be to use the same hotkey on all my computers for opening different versions of portable Visual Studio Code.
  10. Ah I think we both spoke past each other. I always meant I wanted to invoke Alfred with only either Left Opt + Space or Right Opt + Space, not only Left Opt or Right opt. Edited for clarification.
  11. Not only do I invoke Alfred with ⌥+Space, I invoke 60 different things with global keyboard shortcuts, almost all of which involve the Opt key for that very reason; it does a bunch of symbols that I never need. At least on my US keyboard layout. Thank you for the suggest, though I don't want it badly enough to install another whole app with such wide privileges
  12. I invoke Alfred with Opt+Space. Is it possible to invoke Alfred only with LeftOpt + Space or RightOpt + Space ? Otherwise, consider this a feature request 🙂
