  1. Hi everyone, Just starting to play with Alfred Workflows a little bit and I find it amazing! I created a very simple workflow to launch a youtube search, so that instead of : finding Chrome Cmd + T Entering youtube.com Waiting for page to load Click in the search input field Type in your search Enter Wait for the page to load It becomes : Ctrl + Space Type in yt your search Enter Wait for the page to load I timed it and it now takes me 5seconds from the moment I want to search for something to the moment I have the search results displayed, compared to 30sec before.. depending of how many times a day you research something on youtube, it adds up to a few minutes gained every day Hope you guys enjoy it. You can download the workflow here : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6iNJEvkpFeedlg5UVV0OGZGV1k Note : I know this is a very (very) simple workflow, but I searched the forum and couldn't find anything, so may be it can help someone out some day.

  2. I use the default Search Google for '{query}' web search feature, but it frequently does not work. This situation starts to happens after I update to Alfred 3 and maybe update OSX recently. I'm using the latest Alfred, Alfred 3.6 Build 903, Wednesday 14th February 2018 My OSX version is 10.13.3 I'm sorry I cannot provide screenshots, because it's just you type 'go query' and then flashes and nothing happened, what strange is that if I type the query the 2nd time, then it usually works at the 2nd time, but I definitely don't want to type every query twice. I'm new to this forum, point out any place that I need to make improvements on bug reporting. (Say, I'm not sure if I post to the right place)
  3. Hi everyone. I have a collection of custom web searches that I would like to execute using a hyperlink. This way I have a clickable solution to run it when presented with a reminder or am reviewing my notes. I could create a workflow with an external trigger, but it feels like a lot of added overhead to build and maintain for a simple mechanism. Is there a mechanism to trigger a specific Alfred custom web search via a hyperlink? e.g. "alfred://websearch (You need to check this today)"
  4. Hi, I created a custom search to show all gmail messages with a specific label, which works well (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#label/{query}) However, I would like Alfred to suggest labels based on a custom list (e.g. a text file with all the labels). In other words, I would like to 1) type the keyword, 2) type space, 3) type the first letter of a label and have Alfred suggest all the labels beginning with that letter, so that I can select and send the {query} string. Is there a similar workflow I can edit, or would anyone have pointers on how to accomplish this? Thanks! Giovanni
  5. Hey guys, I might be an outlier but I think it would be cool to type in a bitcoin address into the search field of Alfred and have it automatically go to the transaction history of blockchain.info or some other block explorer website. In theory, this shouldn't be too hard to do... Maybe...
  6. Mac platform and OS. Have internal HD and external HD. When doing a search for a particular file or folder, Alfred "usually" finds the file/folder located on my external HD but the same file/folder located on my internal HD is not found. How can I configure Alfred to expand search results to encompass both, my internal HD and my external HD. #2 - Alfred unable to find .fmp12 files, whereas Spotlight is able to find .fmp12 files. (.fmp12 are FileMaker 12 files - a professional data base application). As you might have guessed, I am not some "tech-no" wizard so please keep any replies in simple, easy to understand, language. Actually Spotlight does a better job finding file/folders but Spotlight does not show the complete hierarchy, leading to the result, whereas Alfred does (when and if it is able to find what I'm searching for. Would appreciate anyone's help in finding a solution.
  7. Learn Anything This workflow lets you search for any topic on Learn Anything website. For more information, on how you can use the workflow, you can read the GitHub readme. Hope you like it. ? Code | Download
  8. Update: I appreciate the responses. After reflection, however, I think I misstated my issue. I'll restate it (hopefully more clearly—sorry for the confusion): Upon entering the first character of the keyword trigger for the expansion, I am presented with a list of the available expansions in my Alfred window. In the case of a couple of my expansions, I would prefer to have (some of) them not appear until the entire keyword has been entered. Thanks again… I've set up several text-expansion workflows, each triggered with a 4-character keyword. My problem is that the workflow is activated (and the expansion completed) after only typing in 1 character of the 4-character keyword. And I want Alfred to complete the expansion only after the full keyword had been entered. Ideas? Many thanks.
  9. Web Searches This workflow lets you open any web submission on the Internet. Such as quickly making a Reddit post to some subreddit, creating a new GitHub repo. Making a post on stack exchange forum and more. This workflow is an alternative to Alfred builtin web searches. I made it because I wanted to fuzzy search for the website I want to search on and I wanted something that the community can extend. This workflow achieves both these goals. You can extend the list of websites being searched for here and you can quickly select the website from a big list by simply typing where you want to search on. This workflow searches a big list of websites that can be found here similar to DuckDuckGo Bang operators. If you wish to extend it, you can do it. For more information, on how you can use the workflow, you can read the GitHub readme. Hope you like it. ? Code | Download
  10. In my Alfred Web Search preferences, I have disabled Google and Amazon, but I must be missing a checkbox somewhere because Alfred insists on putting Google and Amazon in the search results for any term that I type (see screenshots). How do I definitively disable Google and Amazon search?
  11. Right now Alfred allows full fuzzy matches for app names only, e.g. pto -> Photos. This leads to inconsistent results, when searching for files and also clipboard, snippets etc. I would really like an option to enable the same behavior everywhere, so I can type for instance errcod -> ErrorCodes. Are there any plans to implement this in the future?
  12. I'd like to see fuzzy search for snippets. Right now if you skip one letter in the snippet name nothing matches. I tend to have snippets for programming that start with similar strings but ultimately diverge toward the end. So if I'm trying to bring up my "gf_left_half" snippet I could just search glh for instance to bring it up.
  13. Currently a search for github in snippet viewer/clipboard history won't find my snippet named Issue (GitHub) as I'd expect… was tempted to file this as a bug, but I think it's just Alfred's search being naïve/speedy and using whitespace as word boundaries? Kinda also relates to the search improvement suggestions over here:
  14. I am struggling to figure out how to make Alfred 3.6 setup to Search in particular gmail account in mailplane. Did anybody figure a solution? B
  15. Hi there everyone, I've just set up Alfred and absolutely love it. However can't seem to activate the ability to search for Google Docs within my filesystem. Alfred doesn't seem to recognise them. Only finds the native pages files. I use Google Docs for everything so would be great for these to show up like they do in the normal finder search. Many thanks
  16. Hey guys, I'm wondering if there is a way to setup the search location if the hot key is triggered to the screen of the "current active window". If there are some screens connected to my Macbook, the search only appears at the notebook screen, even if I work on the extra monitor. FYI: Spotlight does it the way I want Alfred to do it, so I'm pretty sure if this feature is available for now, I can be achievable in future Best, Stefan
  17. With High Sierra running I am unable to search from the Alfred box. Google searches simply take me to the Chrome browser "home" page, offering me the Google search box. I have deleted and reinstalled Alfred 3 with no diff.
  18. Hi there, A while ago, I changed a setting somewhere to disable the auto-highlighting of top result in alfred search window. Now I want it back but couldn't find it anywhere. Any help?
  19. Hi! I want to copy a string like "§ABC §DEFGH §Test" into my clipboard and want to paste it like "ABC, DEFGH, Test" at another place. Can someone help me how to solve this? thank you
  20. Hi all, so I want to make custom search for multiple argument and I need help. I use Alfred v3 with powerpack, doesn't have many experience with programming. The argument is for example: search keyword minimum price condition (used or new) So when I type keyword and the argument separated by comma it will search to several website that I have registered. Example: User input aaa, bbb, ccc Will search: website1.com/xxx=aaa&yyy=bbb&zzz=ccc website2.com/xxx=bbb&yyy=aaa&zzz=ccc website1.com/xxx=ccc&yyy=bbb&zzz=aaa so on (the structure for each website is different) condition: If input only aaa, not bbb or ccc, dismiss argument for bbb & ccc If input olly for aaa & bbb, dismiss ccc. The condition (new/used) is different for each website, so need to change from the given keyword to wach website format. Hope it is clear enough. What is the best way to do it? Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Hi. Since updating to OSX 10.13, I have noticed changes in the way alfred displays files located using the 'find' command. To note: I did not update my OS. I reinstalled from scratch. For example, let's say i am looking for my resume. I type 'Find resume'. I would think that alfred would display the most recently modified file first, or at least the files with more updates. Prior to updating my OS, 'find resume', would immediately display my 2017 resume. Now, my results are cluttered with random files with the name resume that. How can I improve the validity of my search results and actually get what i am looking for?
  22. I recently updated to Alfred 3.5.1 (Build 883, Wednesday 18th October 2017), and to MacOS High Sierra (10.13.1). It appears the search feature linking Alfred to Spotlight doesn't work as before: I frequently refer to a directory doc (in Macintosh HD/Users/MyUserLogin/some_directory/doc). It used to appear on top of my Alfred Search (Alt-Space, Space), but it no longer appears anywhere in the list which I'm presented. However, Spotlight does show that directory in its own list. I did Clear the Application Cache and Rebuild macos Metadata, making sure I checked "Delete ./Spotlight-V100" before proceeding. I'm including a screenshot of the list presented by Alfred, together with one of what Spotlight does show. I'm including a screenshot of the file search setup (which I haven't changed since I installed Alfred months ago). Thanks!
  23. Hi guys, is there any way to only search for contacts if you for instance type "c" first (or any prefix). Like "c john smith" would give me the contact viewer with john smith, while just "john smith" would simply launch the browser/search engine? (I don't want to enable "contacts" in default search results, because it would clog up the results, but I would also like the built-in contacts handlers).
  24. How can I accomplish this? Folder A contains folder B. Folder B is pretty important to me in general but contains a ton of subfolders and documents that flood my search results. If I add folder A to my scope, everything from folder B floods my search results. If I remove folder A, I can't find folder B.
  25. # SafariHistorySearch Alfred workflow to search Safari history written in swift. #Usage `shs <SEARCH_TERMS>` Separate search terms with spaces if you want to search for more than one word. ie: `shs github safari` Each word is searched separately. If you want to search for a phrase, surround the phrase with double quotes, ie: `shs "Alfred Workflow to Search Safari History"` The results contain all search terms. This workflow searches the page url, page title and page body if available. see https://github.com/akaralar/SafariHistorySearch/releases for latest version. I hope you like it!
