    FroZen_X got a reaction from Petru in How to copy a password from 1password?   
    Umm the way how i do it is, opening 1password with a search term and then send keycodes to it via applescript.
     
    Here is an example for a game called league of legends: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dus9sxywxv4dw9i/1password%20mini.alfredworkflow?dl=0
     
    Keep in mind that 1password has to be unlocked before you start.
    To change it to your use, just change this applescript part:
    open location "x-onepassword-helper://search/league" delay 1 Gotta have to check how your what your stuff is exactly name. Just replace "league" with your term.
    Then you have to take a look at the next applescript that's called:
    tell application "System Events" to tell process "1Password mini" set frontmost to true key code 124 delay 1 key code 36 end tell For a normal login copy it does press "Right arrow" and then "Return" after a delay. For your case you gotta have to add "key code 126"
    and then press "Return" i guess like this:
    tell application "System Events" to tell process "1Password mini" set frontmost to true key code 124 delay 1 key code 126 delay 1 key code 36 end tell  
    Gotta have to play with the delay and see what's the best.
    Here is a website for all the possible key codes.
    Maybe someone else knows a better way, but that's how i do it atm ^^
     
    Hope this helps

    Hello everyone,
     
    it would be pretty cool if it would be possible to select multiple Files, Clips or whatever from the Clipboard history and paste it.
    For instance:
     
    I would have copied a few files and wanna paste them. Here is an example:

     
    If i could now just press Shift+Arrow down to select multiple items and then just paste them that would be awesome 
    If there is another way then lemme know, but else this would be decent to have.
     
    Another addition to that would be the ability to change the Shortcut for adding files to the file buffer. Something like
    ⌘+C and ⌘+V would make the file Buffer/Navigation even better
     
    Cheers,

    You can just select the File/Folder you found and press Cmd+C and it will copy the path with file to your clipboard. 
     
    To kinda sort your actions by usage, go to Alfred preferences → File search → Actions → and check Action Ordering.
    There you can also deselect some actions you don't need. 
     
    Hope that helps

    @FroZen_X no timeframe yet, as this change will be wrapped up with some other similar ones to consolidate some code.
     
    Remember that you can wildcard in that view too. The original behaviour in the navigation was based more on shell which is why it deviates. This is now a bit outdated as Alfred has grown which is why it's going to get an overhaul to bring it more in line.

    That's a rather complicated way of doing it, I think.
     
    You should be able to simply use a Run Script action (Language = /bin/bash) with the open command, e.g.:
    open smb://hostname.domain.tld/path/to/directory

    @deanishe agreed, this preview should be able to be turned off.
     
    Also, the fuzzy matching option for fs navigation isn't working as well as it should do. When @FroZen_X posted the request the other day, I took a look at the matching code... really, with fuzzy enabled, you should just be able to type e.g. fixum and it filter to just that item (instead of *fixum).

    That actually adds up to the option "File type icons..." which increased the performance on external drives. Having an additional option to fully deactivate them
    would awesome. This in addition what i just posted would make it easier to see and then access what you want.

    In Alfred's filesystem navigation mode, the entire right half of the file list is given over to a preview, with filenames being truncated to make room for it.
     
    In common situations, the preview adds nothing useful, while the truncation takes a whole lot of important data away:
     

     
    In such situations, it's both easier and faster to scroll through the contents in Finder, where I can see the complete filenames, instead of going through them one-by-one in Alfred so I can see the full name at the bottom of Alfred's window.
     
    Being able to turn off the preview, so I could see the filepath, would fix that. If I want to see a preview, I can hit ⇧.

    FroZen_X got a reaction from nikivi in File navigation → Filter by fuzzy words not just numbers   
    Hello everyone,
     
    currently when I navigate through my Folders i usually tend to speed the process up by typing the folder name.
    When I'm within a folder and wanna select a certain file, i usually type a part of that particular file name. With numbers this works perfectly
    shown in the following example:
     
    Test Files:
     

     
    Search:
     

     
     
    As you see even tho the name is "11_12" i yet can search via "1112" which is awesome. Fuzzy works in this case.
    However here is the same with a string, which doesn’t work:
     

     
    What work however is when you add a wildcard like "*":
     

     
    I would love to see an option to add fuzzy search for strings too, as it’s a pain when you jump back several times to a folder 
    by using Alfreds "Previous Path" function and you have to add "*" again. Sadly Alfred doesn’t save the previous Filter you used.

    I think Alfred's navigation mode could do with an overhaul in a few regards, tbh, and a fuzzier search would be a large step in the right direction.
     
    As in your example, it's pretty common to avoid spaces in filenames (for various reasons), and that does not combine well with Alfred's word-starts-with search (at least, not with Alfred's current concept of what constitutes a word).
     
    The main drawback of fuzzy search is that it's not great (slow, too many matches) with large datasets. That doesn't really apply to navigation mode, as directories very rarely contain several thousand files and subdirectories.

    I believe there are a couple options on Linux. There is an Alfred imitation called Albert, apparently. It's mostly something that I've considered although now that I use Alfred so much, it wouldn't be a decision I'd rush into.

    About the methodical part, it actually reminds me of my father haha. He has things usually neatly put out and also documents things really well
    for times when he hasn’t looked at something for a long time and knows he will need it again. I myself find this step sometimes a bit overkill 
    when you do it with so many things but it’s a nice to have.

    I prefix things. 

     
    General category is actually my normal mode category. But I use few profiles for programming things. The only difference between these profiles is the P sticky key does different things.
     
    The general profile is my Go profile. So P + f will insert `fmt.Println()` or P + G to insert log.Printf() and move caret between brackets (I use that a lot for debugging).
     
    Also P + W will insert `workflow:` which is @deanishe AwGo library magic argument for workflows. I try to write many workflows, often failing but still trying.
     
    And then I use this to switch between profiles:
     

     
    I optimise things for fast retrieval and memory. So I can do anything as fast as 1 second and I always can query things in case I forget something. I also structure things to scale.
     
    Also the only keys that are not sticky for me are HJKL because sVim and vim mode.

    When TextExpander pulled their money and data grab, Alfred’s snippet expansion was extremely limited (didn’t even have a cursor macro). I had an old Typinator licence, so it was cheap to upgrade, and it imported TextExpander snippets almost perfectly.
     
    I don’t do anything super-advanced with snippets*, but I do use forms quite a bit to enter multiple values. AFAIK, with Alfred you’d need to write a workflow to do that, which is an awful lot more work. Maybe 60 minutes to do what takes 60 seconds in Typinator.
     
    Also, Typinator expands more reliably.
     
    * I use native snippet engines when coding. An engine built into the editor is far more powerful, as it can use the editor’s own API instead of the clipboard and simulated keypresses.

    This looks really painful to me. Why not use traditional HJKL vim bindings? For me its S + HJKL to move around. Oh and the cool thing also is that S + V held will emulate shift key being pressed. So I can S + V + L and visually select text to the right.

    @nikivi, @JimmyTheSaint Here's Niki's epic post (the thread is hidden, not deleted):
     
    If you really care about saving keystrokes, I advise you to look into Karabiner.

    I have over 500 or so workflows I use and I can access anyone of them from one keystroke. Just one. 
     
    I nearly never use Alfred default (cmd + space) interface (It is single press of right command or jl keys together for me). Because Alfred has this awesome feature of making super focused searches for anything I wish to search and creating external triggers for them I can then call from Karabiner.
     
    So there is literally no use to have default search aside from opening some applications which I also open from single keystroke in Keyboard Maestro.
     
     
     
    The most exciting thing about Karabiner and making every key on the keyboard into a modifier key is that there are literally thousands of keys you can fill and customise. Where accessing any one of these keys (which can map to workflows / Keyboard Maestro macros ..) is literally 1 second away. Compared to (1. opening Alfred 2. searching for trigger).
     
    It's kind of insane if you think about what it really enables you to do. You can even create extra virtual layers of keys with Keyboard Maestro palettes. For example I have space key modifier to accessing different palettes. I can then space (held) + e and quickly enter an emoji insert palette:
     
     
    So inserting ? is space + e + a and emoji is there. And in case I forget what key ? is. The palette can remind me. So you can do anything you can dream of in two-three keystrokes. Of course emoji palette is just an example, you can run some more complex macros or workflows if you so wish.
     
    Just as an example, because this forum uses some weird markup and is not markdown, I am forced to use @vitor's MarkdownTransform workflow. So I can then just select some text and press t + b and it will convert the selected text into BBCode. Where t is my modifier and b is the action key to press if t is held down (b for BBCode). If I didn't have Karabiner, I would either will need to remember some cryptic hotkey like ⇧⌘⌃+B or something. Because hotkeys are scarce and they will run out quickly. Or open Alfred and start searching for a trigger to do this but that takes too many keystrokes.
     
    Setting @deanishe's Searchio to JK pressed together and J + : pressed together to access currently open Safari tabs with Safari Assist is life changing already. Or LM to search my safari bookmarks and LN to search chrome bookmarks. Or setting s + hjkl to mimic arrow keys (How about vim everywhere?). This list goes on.
     
    It's quite strange but I sometimes check on the internet if anyone actually uses Karabiner too in this way and I never found another person. Would be awesome to see other people's setups and what they made.

    So it seems you're currently more often using Forklift especially due to the quick access through your workflow.
