  1. Hi all! I'm having a small but annoying issue. I just installed Alfred on my new work computer and the clipboard shortcut (when you type "clip" and space into the alfred window) isn't working. the keyboard shortcut for the clip center does work, but I prefer to use the clipboard shortcut to get there. I've tried deactivating/reactivating the shortcut, restarting the program, and restarting my computer, but those things haven't worked. Incidentally, the clip viewer also does not appear when I type "clip viewer." Perhaps it's related to the fact that because of work restrictions, I had t
  2. Ever since doing the last Yosemite update I cannot copy (at all) within the mac apps: textedit, safari, and a few others. When I do a copy of text it just never shows up in the Alfred clipboard. I attempted to copy the mac version from system info..let me type it out. OS X 10.10.2 (14C1510) Alfred v2.6 (374)
  3. Hi all! -- This may be a dumb question. I am trying out Derick Fay's "case converter" workflow, and I noticed that if I selected (say) "foo" and uppercased it, then whatever I had on my clipboard got thrown out and changed to "foo". So I tried making this simple hotkey that wasn't hooked up to anything: http://screencast.com/t/HI2Y6JicAx And I noticed that this, too, was wiping out my clipboard. I have two questions about this: 1. Is there any way to pass the "Selection in OS X" to a script *without* obliterating the clipboard? 2. Failing that, is there some way to access the *original
  4. Hi there~ first, watch this I've copied some text on VisualJSON (in Mac Appstore) or other applications too and paste to xcode, but paste doesn't work, but paste to other apps does work. It's only happening on XCode.
  5. The Alfred 2 Clipboard Manager stopped working for me last weekend. I keep copied textual content, but it won't appear in the manager's history. I have also removed the file ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb, restarted Alfred2, reinstalled Alfred2, but nothing seemed to work. What did I miss? EDIT: My Alfred2 build: v2.6 (374) Mac OS X build: 10.10.2
  6. Hey Alfred community, I have been DuckDuckGo'ing (and Googling) and reading posts on this forum for hours looking for an answer before posting what feels like a very noob question, but I couldn't find what I needed, so here goes... Is there a way to save the current clipboard to a variable in memory and then at the end of the workflow restore that variable to the current clipboard? I'm used to the logic of a programming languages where you would so something like this: $myVar = $CLIPBOARD; // save clipboard /* Do stuff that uses the clipboard */ $CLIPBOARD = $myVar; // restore cl
  7. There are no my clips with clipboard hotkey that i've copied after updating to yosemite 10.10.2 Only snippets show up in the list with the hotkey
  8. Hi If I load up the clipboard/snippet viewer it opens up and that's fine. At the top of the list I can open up a list of available snippets or I can click on one of the items in the list of clipboard items if I wish to. However, if I open the list of available snippets and then decide that I want to go back to the list of clipboard items instead how do I do that? I've tried all the keys I can think of to no avail and at the moment I have to press the esc key to close the pane and then toggle Alfred again. I'm sure there is another way of going back to the opening list that I have failed to
  9. Is there a way to open an URL like this 'http://somesite.com/{clipboard}'?
  10. It seems awfully clunky to create a new text snippet. Alfred makes a lot of stuff so much quicker, so to have to stop, go to the preferences and manually enter a new piece of text for a saved snippet feels like a drag. I wonder if there couldn't be an easier way of creating snippets on the fly. The simplest way would be to allow you to perform an action on one of your clipboard history entries, to "store as snippet". Or, just a command in Alfred: "snippet <new text clipping>". Heck, this would be a perfect thing for a user-created workflow. I'd do it myself, but that "snippets.alfdb"
  11. I just thought of this! My alfred prefs are saved in dropbox and are synced, so every workflow etc' are immediately updated! What if we could have the clipboard history saved there as well? That would mean immediate sync of clipboard and snippets!!! How cool would that be? UPDATE : just checked, and snippets are indeed synced! so just clipboard items then.

All that appears in the Clipboard Viewer is "All Snippets" Troubleshooting Steps I've tried: Adding All Applications to "Ignore Apps" --> Then Reset Copying Strings in Different Applications (Safari, Notes, Mail etc..)

  13. Whenever I invoke Alfred it is now on my my laptop's monitor.. and never on my external display. I noticed this since running the last update. It renders the clipboard manager useless, because when it opens on a different monitor, if I select a clip it doesn't go to the program I was on before I invoked it (that may be a separate problem). About to submit a bug report, but wanted to check if anyone else has had this same issue or got a workaround for it.
  14. This probably exists already, but I am looking for a simple workflow that will automatically take a screenshot and copy it to the clipboard. Any help?
  15. Alfred v2 pastes to the FIRST window of an application instead of the ACTIVE window. Steps to reproduce: Open a Google Chrome window and click to put the cursor in the address field (or any other field). Open a second Google Chrome window and do the same. Attempt to paste something into the second Chrome window from Alfred's clipboard history or snippets. Alfred v2 pastes it into the first Chrome window instead of the active Chrome window. This happens every time the above situation occurs. I also tested with Firefox, and the same behavior occurs, so it doesn't seem to be a Chrome issue.
  16. I tweak the Alfred -> Clipboard to persist 3 months, but when i scroll down, i can't find any record 2 month ago, it only record today record
  17. I just discovered that I could use cmd+enter as a keyboard shortcut to display Alfred clipboard. Awesome! The problem is cmd can also be used as an action modifier. So, when I type cmd+enter from Alfred's bar the clipboard panel appears. If there is a technical possibility to use the same keyboard shortcut in these two cases, you can consider this post as a feature request :-)
  18. Greetings -- I'm writing documentation and would like to paste code examples from my editor into an interactive shell running in a given Terminal tab, e.g. a tab named "Scala". How should I go about building a workflow for it in Alfred? Cheers, A+ (Alexy)
  19. I use a pattern to name my files. I added some of these patterns in my clipboard (no snippets, just added to the clipboard history) I just tried to rename a file in Finder. As I hit the clipboard viewer hotkey, the file is not selected anymore so Finder considers the file as renamed -> I can't add my clip from the clipboard. I tested adding clips from the clipboard in Forklift and worked perfectly fine. An OS X mountain lion user.
  20. I'm trying to create a workflow to transform some text into a hyperlink and automatically paste it. I've copied some text to the clipboard that contains the bits that I need to form the URL. I have a script to create the URL and I can pass it to the Copy to Clipboard Output. But it's still just the URL text. I can modify the script to hack the URL into an RTF snippet. If I push the snippet on the clipboard in the script, I can paste it as a hyperlink, so I know it works. But, if I just pass the RTF data as text to Copy to Clipboard it doesn't paste as a hyperlink (just the R
  21. It would be nice if I could scroll beyond the last 50 items in my clipboard history. I know I can do a search for items farther back, but surely it is possible to do this without invoking search. I'd also like a way to view history by day— perhaps I want to find something I know I copied a couple of days ago and want to view everything from that date.
  22. my problem is that I need to right click on some links and copy them, I can't CMD+CC on the link to merge them, and right clicking and copying twice won't trigger the merge behaviour. is there a way that I can merge those URLs ? or maybe after copying a bunch of them I can merge my whole current Clipboard history and paste it at once ?
  23. I'm trying to make a script to help in calculating em values. I feel really dumb asking this, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the result copied to the clipboard, for pasting into other applications. Here's what I have so far: set query to {query} set base_em to 16 set calculated_em to query / base_em calculated_em as real get calculated_em set the clipboard to calculated_em Essentially, the workflow will be typing em {query}, then ⏎, copying the result to the keyboard. I've got everything working until the clipboard part - I'm sure I'm missing something totally obvious h
  24. I've write a simple run search on a dictionary website. The input could be one word or multiple words. In latter case, the workflow would generate multiple feedbacks about the meaning, pronunciation and other infos. I use this workflow to learn fresh words by copying the outputs to my note. My problem is: for convenience, sometimes I would copy one sentence as input while there are only a few words I really want to search. Now I use the output action "copy to clipboard" but it can only copy one item at a time. I have to run the workflows many times to finish my work, which is very time-con
  25. The clipboard doesn't catch any (plain) text I copy form various sources for a while and various versions. What you were doing when the issue happened - Copy (plain) text from different sources (TextEdit, Google Chrome or Sublime Text 3) Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action - Yes, even after reboots or restarts of Alfred. Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are using - v2.3 (264) Include your OS X version - 10.9.2
