    FroZen_X reacted to deanishe in OneNote Snippet Expansion Pastes Clipboard Instead of Creating Snippet   
    Typinator. Stupid name, and not as pretty as TextExpander, but it imported all my TE snippets almost perfectly, and can do everything TE can.
     
    With snippet triggers, I guess Alfred can now technically do everything I want, but I have quite a few "form"-type snippets with multiple placeholders, and have little interest in trying to replicate them using Alfred.
     
    It'd take a very long time and wouldn't work as well.

    Here is a workflow that can do it:

    basically select whatever you want to change the quotes of and press ⌘+⇧+C. It will change the quotes and paste the result.

    FroZen_X reacted to vitor in Open office hours for talking Alfred   
    Inspired by Zach Lieberman, I’d like to try open office hours. I’ve never hosted or participated in any, so it’ll be a learning experience for me as well.

    The goal is discussing Alfred (or anything you want, really). I’m not an extraordinary developer, but I do have extensive experience with Alfred and coming up with solutions to make workflows do what we need. We may or may not talk code, but time would likely be better spent discussing how to make your ideas fit a Workflow.

    If you’re interested, reply to this post, send me a direct forum message, or tweet at me. Tell me if you have preferred days of the week and times. I’m in Lisbon (Portugal), so please give me your times in GMT (and if it falls at 5AM, you’ll know those aren’t suitable). Also include if you’d like to discuss alone or are fine with other people joining in. If you don’t have anything to talk about and just want to assist, that’s also fine; just say so and you can sit in on the conversations with the people that say they are fine with others joining (if any).

    After (if) I get a few people interested, we can schedule a day and times from there. I don’t have a Skype account, so we’ll talk via appear.in. It’s like Skype, but you don’t need an account or installing anything, just a web browser. It also allows easy screen sharing via a Chrome extension that can be installed on demand. It supports up to eight people at once.
     
    Emulating Zach, I’m thinking twenty to thirty minutes per person, over a couple of hours. At least for the first time, having just a few people might be best, to know what works and doesn’t.

    Like Dean said, Alfred will suggest the URL however you can just use the "Quick file search mode" which would let you search for files only.
    Alfred Preferences → Features → File Search → Quick Search
     
    That way you just press space after launching Alfred and you'll search for files only.

    FroZen_X reacted to eric roch in Alfred Remote for iOS Widget   
    I love the remote feature of Alfred.  I use it to control Spotify, iTunes, and resize windows from my phone.  The only thing that bothers me about it is that I have to unlock my phone and navigate back to the remote app to use it.  This proves problematic, or at least inconvenient, when I am watching a movie and want to play/pause because someone came into the room, but it takes 15-30 seconds to get the app open.
     
    I would love to see a widget in the notification center of iOS that allows users to select remote buttons to display from any screen on their iPhone/iPad.  Ideally, this would be resizable so one could have a single row (such as play/pause, vol+, vol-, mute) or multiple rows to control other things as well.  This would be a swipe and a tap away rather than the current fingerprint (and passcode when it it doesn't work), swipe, tap the folder, tap the app, wait for it to load, tap the button.  I think we can all agree on which option is better...

    here is a small Alfred v3 workflow to toggle mute in Skype
    You can mute Skype via the keyword "smute", it will show you whether it's already muted or not(MUTE OFF/ON).

    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,

    FroZen_X reacted to deanishe in [PYTHON FIX] How to fix Python workflows hanging Alfred on Sierra   
    There is a bug in my (unofficial) Alfred-Workflow library that causes very many workflows using it to hang quite dramatically on Sierra.
     
    If you are affected (i.e. you see Alfred's CPU usage spike to 100%), Activity Monitor will show two Python processes like this (choose View > All Processes, Hierarchically), with the bottom one at ~99% CPU (this screenshot is actually of a non-misbehaving workflow):
     

     
    Download and run this workflow, which will update any old versions of Alfred-Workflow in your installed workflows.
     
    That should get your workflows working again until the workflow developers can push official fixes.

    @FroZen_X you can delete individual items manually using cmd+backspace in the clipboard history viewer.
     
    If you could set Keyboard Maestro to use a transient marker when populating the clipboard, then Alfred's history will ignore this. Alternatively, you could setup an Alfred workflow to do a similar task, and Alfred's Clipboard output object can set the text as transient.

    You can grab RecentDownloads (disclaimer: I wrote it) and go into the top Script Filter and change the directory listed on the second line of code. Instead of ${HOME}/Downloads, change to whatever your target directory is. That still won’t automatically open the most recent file, but it’ll list everything on that directory with the newest thing on top.

    FroZen_X reacted to Andrew in How to include workflow results in default search   
    @vitor pretty much sums up the reasoning behind this. Essentially, Alfred is extremely lightweight on a user's Mac, having minimal CPU and battery impact at all times. This is essentially achieved by only running the internal logic paths required which lead to the user's desired result at any one time, not running any unnecessary code. This becomes more significant when [non-native] workflows may take a decent amount of CPU or network traffic.
     
    Added to the fact that this is a rarely requested feature, it's unlikely that this will be implemented into Alfred's default results.
     
    Having said that, and having a think about this, there is one aspect I would consider. You can already create a workflow and attach it to an input filter (such as a file filter, script filter etc). At this point, it's a 1 to 1 mapping for hotkey to input filter. If there was interest, I'd look at enhancing this so that one hotkey could connect to multiple input filters, and results from all filters would be shown. This would essentially allow you to build a workflow which shows a custom version of Alfred with the specific, highly customised results you'd like.
     
    Cheers,

    FroZen_X reacted to deanishe in How to include workflow results in default search   
    Connecting a Hotkey to multiple inputs isn't a bad idea, but it would make more sense, imo, to implement multiple inputs at a lower level, ideally allowing workflows to fetch results (or better yet, arbitrary data) from other workflows.
     
    At the very least, combined inputs should work with a keyword, too.

    FroZen_X reacted to Andrew in Using selected text as input, possible?   
    @Overload119 The easiest way to achieve this at a generic level is to have a single separate hotkey defined to show Alfred with the currently selected text in macOS, and place the cursor to the left.
     
    i.e. my Alfred hotkey is alt+space, but I have ctrl+alt+space (workflow hotkey trigger by itself) setup as the following, which puts Alfred in a state (cursor to the left) ready for me to type the keyword:
     

     
    This way, you only need to remember two hotkeys - One for Alfred by default, and one for Alfred with selected text.

    I used Gemini 2 a lot about a year ago when I replaced the mechanical HD on my iMac with an SSD and 2nd HD, and cleaned up several hundred GB of photos in the process.  It worked fine for me but I switched to using SnapSelect for photos since it does fuzzy matching of similar but not identical photos.  No complaints with Gemini 2, though.  The bigger trick is to set up your work process so you don't end up with dupes in the first place
