  1. Back in the day there was a clipboard app called Flycut/Jumpcut. When you pressed the hotkeys to bring up the interface, you needed to hold the modifier keys, select which clip you wanted to paste, and then let go of the modifier keys to paste the clip into the active application. So basically, you would: hold cmd+shift then tap v while still holding cmd+shift, use arrow keys to scroll through clips when you have the clip you want to paste selected, let go of cmd+shift the content is pasted into the frontmost application With Alfred, when you press the modifier keys (in my case
  2. As it is currently I'm hiding the Alfred menubar icon with Bartender mainly because it adds very little. What I would like though is the possibility to use the icon to select and paste items from the clipboard as an alternative to bringing up the clipboard entry list through the hotkey combination. Have a look at Collective for example. The usual functionality can be relegated to context-clicking the Alfred icon as far as I am concerned.
  3. V3 supports images in clipboard history. It would be great if I could save images as snippets that I'll be able to paste anywhere
  4. Hello guys, my question is really simple: I have a folder containing 5 .txt files named 1,2,3,4,5. I need to create a workflow that gets the content of the file specified in the input and copy it to my clipboard (and possibly paste it to the front app). ex: "copy 1" and it copies the content of 1.txt to my clipboard I've been trying for hours but I didnt manage to make anything work. I can do that from the terminal but if I use the same code in alfred it doesn't work. I don't get what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hello, if I'm trying to paste previous copied code to netbeans (an programmers ide) with the integrated clipboard alfred will not paste the copied text to this programm. Any other programs are working. Is it a problem with netbeans? Can anybody help me with this problem?
  6. when i open the clipboard viewer, it seem there are no button that i can click to add any of the clipboard history item as a snippet, i think this feature is very useful to me, thanks very much

  8. Alfred v. 2 Clipboard does not work at all. I have gone through the various steps on the page https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/clipboard-history/, "persist for" is turned on, clipboard.alfdb has been deleted from the ~User/Library/App Support/Alfred 2/Databases. Logged off. Logged on. Rebooted. Uninstalled. Reinstalled. Stood on my head for 45 minutes, ate 47 hotdogs, did a rain dance. Nothing.
  9. The Command+C+C shortcut works a bit too quickly, so if I'm just a hair slow (even when I'm consciously trying to be quick) it'll just copy a new entry. This happens maybe a third of the time for me, even when I'm using it multiple times in a row. When that happens I can use the Snippet viewer to reselect my previous entry and try again, but this is inconvenient. A screenshot wouldn't help, but I'd be happy to record some audio of me gathering clipboard snippets if that would. I'm using 2.8.3 (435), but this doesn't seem to be specific to pre-release versions.
  10. I used ClipMenu for years and one option I sorely miss is one that sets the clipboard so that, when pasting, the order of the clipboard entries isn't change to move the most recently pasted to the top!
  11. It would be really cool if Alfred had an option for storing images in Clipboard History. Plain text is easy to search and light on resources, but limiting if you rely on images (e.g. graphic designer). When using snippets and/or workflow clipboard objects, {clipboard} should be able to inject images stored in the Clipboard. This would obviously increase Alfred's memory usage; if implemented, it should definitely be optional. Maybe even separate settings that set limits on how big a stored image can be (just like the current implementation for text clipping size). Cheers
  12. Hi. Clipboard functionality is not working. Also when I copy text to clipboard from anywhere (cmd+c) the following is appearing in the console. 12/01/16 15:38:48,230 Alfred 2[2601]: DB Error: 11 "database disk image is malformed" 12/01/16 15:38:48,230 Alfred 2[2601]: DB Query: delete from clipboard where item = ? 12/01/16 15:38:48,230 Alfred 2[2601]: DB Path: /Users/dima/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb 12/01/16 15:38:48,231 Alfred 2[2601]: DB Error: 11 "database disk image is malformed" 12/01/16 15:38:48,231 Alfred 2[2601]: DB Query: insert into clipboar
  13. Alfred Version v2.8.1 (425) OS X: Yosemite 10.10.5 When using the clipboard history, history/latest items are viewable. However, when I hit enter on an item to paste it, the latest item in the clipboard is always pasted.
  14. Hi, this is probably the shortest and easiest workflow ever but i thought i'd post it anyway in case anyone finds it useful aswell. It simply removes the formatting from the text on the clipboard. So, if you copy some text from Firefox and paste it in an E-mail, often the pasted text will have a different font/text size/bold,italic formatting than the alredy present text in your e-mail. To solve this i use "Cmd + C" , "Alfred -> Strclip" , "Cmd + V", and the text will now be pasted with the correct formatting. There's also a native OS X shortcut for this (Cmd + Alt + Shift + V), ho
  15. As a followup to my earlier workflow, here's a new one which uses the recently updated xkpasswd library, now known as Crypt::HSXKPasswd. It lets you generate secure, memorable passwords easily, directly to your clipboard for pasting into those signup forms. A variety of options are provided based on the presets used at xkpasswd.net. Details over on my blog.
  16. I just read and implemented your tip to create a workflow to paste from the clipboard as plain text, using a hotkey (I used Cmd + Shift + V as you suggested). I then tried the tip to "Tell Alfred which apps to ignore", and dragged TextEdit into the relevant well. This worked as described, and something I copied in TextEdit didn't appear in Alfred's Clipboard History viewer. But if I used the Cmd + Shift + V hotkey it was pasted — and then appeared in the history. Surely this isn't the behaviour you intended, since using the "paste as plain text" hotkey will inadvertently add the copied
  17. What you were doing when the issue happened I was copying with command+c Whether you were able to replicate it Not on demand, but it happens frequently Include any screenshots that might help us sorry Include the version and build number from Alfred's General preferences (bottom left) 2.7.2 This bug has been present for quite some time, but because I disabled merging (because of the bug) I forgot about it. It occurs frequently when I hit command+c that the notification of fast append is happening even though I only hit command+c once (no double-tap). I love this
  18. Software versions: iOS - 9.0.1 OS X - 10.11 Alfred - v2.8 (414) Alfred Remote - v1.1 I am trying to use a clipboard snippet on Remote to send text from my iPhone clipboard to my OS X clipboard. It's not sending the clipboard from iOS, but just putting my OS X clipboard into the snippet on my OS X clipboard. The clipboard snippet: here is clipboard: {clipboard} I do the following: 1. Copy text onto iOS clipboard 2. Open Alfred Remote 3. Tap my clipboard action (called "Clipboard") 4. "Clipboard - OK" appears in the upper right 5. Paste on my Mac into Sublime text editor
  19. When attempting to Show the Clipboard, is always blank
  20. Hi Team! I'm using alfred's clipboard/snipppet manager a lot and it is really great. But this bug regularly ruins my otherwise smooth workflow. I can reproduce this bug on two macs (iMac & Mac Mini) with two monitors each (bug requires dual monitor setup to occur). If I open two windows of the same App (in my case two iTerms, but it works with two windows of another App, too), then focus the window on my secondary screen and use alfred's clipboard manager to paste something into the window, it always pastes it in the window on the primary screen (the window that had no focus).
  21. Able to replicate: Yes, every time Alfred Version: Version 2.7.1, April 15, 2015 OS X Version: Version 10.10.4 Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a new workflow by clicking the "+" button 2. Templates->Clipboard->Paste text clip from hotkey 3. Assign a hotkey 4. Open the block "Copy to clipboard" Enter any text you want to be pasted when invoking the hotkey Check "Automatically paste to front most app" 5. Save 6. Go to any text area or text app and invoke the hotkey 7. The text is copied in twice 8. Uncheck "Automatically paste to from most app" 9. Nothing is pasted,
  22. Hello all, Silly question: I'm using the clipboard manager frequently at the moment, and am jumping between recently used clips which store Bookends citations that I am inserting in Scrivener. Given that they are a bit cryptic, I don't want one that shouldn't be there (accidentally copied) popping up when I run a search in Alfred's clipboard manager. So... any way to 'remove' a clip from the Manager list? Is it maybe stored somewhere, for me to tinker with or something? Or am I missing a simple 'delete' option? Many thanks!
  23. Hi, I just tried creating a workflow that will copy a single tab character to the clipboard and paste it into the frontmost app. However, the Copy to Clipboard item's textbox will show me entering the tab character, but when I hit Save and then reopen that Output action, the tab character is gone. I'm guessing that textbox is trimming whitespace upon saving. Is there a way to force the tab character to persist? Thanks, T PS The reason I'm creating this workflow is to get around OSX on Chrome not recognizing Option + Tab, or other typical commands to force a tab in a text en
  24. Hi there, I love the Clipboard History feature pretty much, but what's missing for me is an option to clear the history on restart of the computer. Maybe this option could be implemented in one of the upcomuing releases? Or at least we could have a 'presist for' option less than 24 hours? Cheers, Michael
  25. Hi I recently had to rebuild my iMac from scratch and restore it from Time Machine. Since doing so the clipboard capture feature no longer works. It is definitely turned on. It was really useful, how can I get it back? OSX 10.10 Alfred 2.7.1 (287)
