  1. It would be handy to have an option for the "Copy to Clipboard" Workflow output to bypass Alfred's Clipboard history. Basically an internal version of the "Ignore Apps" option. It'd be nice to be able to keep clutter out of the history. In this case, I'm using an Alfred workflow as a basic text expander ( http://jdfwarrior.tumblr.com/post/40355737734/a-little-secret-in-alfred-2-youll-like ).
  2. I'm wondering if it's possible, maybe using a Workflow, to mimic LaunchBar's Paste & Remove from Clipboard History? Essentially, I can copy 5 items, and then paste them in reverse order by hitting CTRL+OPTION+CMD+V. Every time I hit that key combination, it pastes an item and deletes the item from the clipboard's history. As a web developer, this is great for adding content. Failing that, if anyone knows of a standalone clipboard app that has that functionality, I could use that instead.
  3. Hello, I am looking for a workflow that will append the selected text ( it will be plain text always in Textedit) into another archive text file. That's it. The target archive file will not likely be open usually. If I have to Select the text and then copy to clipboard first, that's fine. Ideally I would be able to just select the text then trigger the Alfred workflow with the Hotkey trigger (archive file gets opened, text appended, file gets closed) and then I will delete the selected text in my working text file (inside of workflow or manually) Tried some Automator script but I couldn't configure the code syntax correctly. From : http://chronicle.com/blogs/profhacker/scripting-101-a-very-gentle-introduction-to-applescript/44969 set theText to the clipboard set theFilePath to (“/Whatever/The Path/Actually Is”) & “Whatever the Filename is.txt” set theFileReference to open for access theFilePath withwrite permission write ” ” to theFileReference starting at eof write theText to theFileReference starting at eof close access theFileReference New to this. Thanks for any help. Ray
  4. !!! Follow this link to the newest version instead - this version supports both Safari and Chrome, and any markdown application you "throw at it". This workflow has 2 uses in iA Writer - to format text links and images (html, IMG tag). Text links To format a markdown link - In iA Writer you select the text you want to use as anchor text in the link, then you use the workflows shortcut or the Alfred command 'link' (no argument). A textbox will appear, prefilled with the URL from the frontmost Safari tab. The user can change this URL before proceeding. When you press 'Enter' the selected text in iA Writer will be formatted as a text link in markdown. Images To insert a image in iA Writer with this workflow, you do as follows: 1. First, make sure you copy the image URL from the web to the clipboard. 2. Activate Alfred and use the following command(s): the number after the tag 'IMG' is optional, and will set the width of the image you format. Dependencies - iA Writer running - IMG insert needs a pre-copied URL in the clipboard before executing the command. Download iA Writer Markdown Help 1.1
  5. As of Alfred 2.0.3: Create a hotkey trigger Select action `Pass through to workflow` Select argument `Selection in OS X` *or* `OS X Clipboard contents` Enter a text prefix When this hotkey is pressed, the prefix is ignored - it is not prepended to the OS X selection / clipboard content - only the selection / clipboard text is passed on to the next workflow step. I'm not sure these combinations were ever *meant* to work, but the UI currently allows them. I can see how these combinations are useful, though: For instance, you could use the prefix text to pass a flag to the next workflow step signal[l]ing that input was provided via hotkey (+selection/clipboard content).
  6. Here is a simple workflow to create a text file with clipboard content in the current or top most Finder window/folder: 1. using a hotkey: the text is created with the following filename pattern: Clipboard - yyymmdd(hhmmss).txt 2. you can use newf key in Alfred (see screenshot) so you can write the first part of the file name (use CTRL key to remove the date and time from the filename). The default date and time was code this way in order to always generate an unique filename. Screenshot: http://d.pr/i/A2Kv Download: http://d.pr/f/5Jp7 This workflow is more a sample on how to use Shell/Bash and AppleScript together.

  7. After updating to version 2.0.3 (187) I'm no longer able to see clipboard history. Tried restarting, disabling and reenabling history no dice. How do I get it to start working again?
  8. I have set the clipboard history persist for 3 month, unfortunately is only seems to remember the past 5 days (yes, I have been using it for more than 5 days ).
  9. I was wondering if there is a way to disable an icon in the clipboard history?
  10. Hi, I would like to see the ability to get to clipboard content easier in all scripts. Similar to the {query}, there could be a {clipboard} macro to expand the contents of the clipboard. I know there are command line functions that I can incorporate in my scripts, but that requires loading more programs. I usually have my system running at max (video editing, program editing, uploading/downloading videos all at the same time). Therefore, it actually is noticeable on my system the slow down of launch more programs (I know, I need to get more memory. Money is not easy these days!). Even better, it would be great to have {clipboard1}, {clipboard2}, ... for the different levels in the clipboard manager in Alfred. That way I can write workflows that would use the clipboard "stack" like a register stack in programming. Just load up the different contents and then launch the workflow (yes, I come from a Forth background. I have written several TILs, so that mindset is easy for me). What do you think?
  11. I do a lot of research on foreign language websites, usually in Japanese. It isn't always possible to use the Chrome translate plug-in, so I tried creating an Alfred Workflow that would: 1- Trigger on a Hotkey with the Argument "Selection in OS X" and Action "Pass through to workflow" 2- Open URL with http://translate.google.com 3- Copy to Clipboard with "Automatically past to front most app" checked. The workflow opens the Google Translate page, but doesn't paste the clipboard contents. I've also tried it with the Argument "OS X Clipboard contents", making sure that I copied the Japanese text to the clipboard first, but unfortunately that doesn't work either. What am I missing? I know the answer must be so simple I'm totally overlooking it.
  12. When setting a clipboard hotkey, I am unable to set it to "Cmd + Shift + [anything]". I have tried this with "Cmd + Shift + C" and several other combinations, but it just doesn't work. Everytime I try it, an error pops out: Unable to save 'features.clipboard.hotkey' with value '{ When trying this in the Alfred Hotkey setter, it worked just fine, however the same problem occurs in the workflow editor. I have encountered this problem (a similar one) in the previous beta releases – with the exception of no error popping out – but as in V1, this hotkey worked, I had no big reason to solve it, but now I would like to transfer everything from V1 to V2.
  13. Don't know whether it exists already, or could be a feature... Given that I have two computers, I would love to be able to create the clipboard snippets and have them be stored somewhere on the cloud (dropbox). Then, I don't need to redefine them each time I change or add a new one - and, instead, have them appear auto-magically across all my machines. Does it already exist and I simply missed it? Thanks, Simon
  14. Hi, I have a simple test workflow consisting of a Keyword box which triggers a /bin/bash Run Script box. The script inside the box is 1 line:- echo "some text" Feeding this into a Post Notification box works as expected, but when I feed it into a /usr/bin/osascript Run Script box which contains the following:- set temp to "{query}" set the clipboard to temp nothing gets written to the clipboard. Changing 'set the clipboard to "more text"' doesn't work either until I delete the first line 'set temp to "{query}"'. Is it a bug?
  15. I frequently use ^⌘V in Photoshop. But ever since I switched to Alfred 2, this hotkey combination stops working, unless I quit Alfred. Photoshop is in the ignore list. I didn't assign a 'Viewer Hotkey'. I even unchecked every option under 'Clipboard' in Alfred preferences. Still no luck. Maybe it's just a bug? But There is an option for completely disabling clipboard related features in Alfred v1. Maybe there should be one in v2, too. I never use this feature of Alfred's because neither v1 or v2 supports images. I prefer ClipMenu.
  16. Hi, attached is a workflow for Droplr app (download) "Upload" keyword and then type the name of the file you want to uploaddi Or use as a file action inside Alfred's file browser Btw, a little Droplr tip, you can hotlink any image on d.pr by appending a "+,png" at the end of the URL. Enjoy
  17. Hi When adding files to the file buffer is it possible to copy the files to the clipboard so that I can then paste them into another application? thanks ///sphardy
