  1. I would like to use Alfred's builtin `Translate '{query}'`, which uses google translate, to translate local PDF documents in addition to text strings. I know that a link to an online PDF file can be passed to a google translate query in the following way: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=nl&u=`<URL to any online PDF file>` to translate an online PDF file. This works as expected if I pass the URL to the online file as the query part in Alfred. But that does not seem to work for local files. Is there a way

  3. alfred-convert-word-to-pdf ========================== Alfred workflow to convert Word document to PDF Here is a very simple workflow that convert any .rtf, .doc and .docx files to pdf.

  4. PDF Split (File Action) Split a two-page scanned PDF into two separate pages. Accepts multiple files. When used on a file original.pdf, it creates original-split.pdf in the same location. All the action is in splitPDF.py which is a very slightly tweaked version of a script by Hanspeter Schmid posted here. Built with PyPDF2. Download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ablkq7p94dxnn5l/PDF Actions.alfredworkflow?dl=1 Not as versatile as Skimmer : PDF actions for Skim was, but working and hopefully more future-proof.
  5. Good day, OK, I am trying to figure out why Alfred will not find a phrase in a pdf that Spotlight finds successfully. So far, I have done the following: Confirmed that Spotlight can do the search successfully. Using the "in" keyword in Alfred, verified that Alfred cannot do the search. I've confirmed my Spotlight prefs are searching pdfs. I've used the "rebuild Mac OS X metadata" from the Alfred control panel. I've waited for the mdimport tasks to complete. I've reset the Alfred search cache. I've entered various terminal commands to rebuild the indices as well. I've pulled out
  6. Maybe you are facing the same problem as me. When I copy something from PDF to Word then the characters with punctuation are represented by two characters where the second one is separated punctuation. It makes problem for checkspelling, printing, ... I have created simple workflow to copy UTF-8 NFC normalized text to clipboard. The text can be pasted into Word as expected. I suggest to use Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-C shortcut for the workflow... The workflow also handles translation of the wrong representation of the character "ž" and "Ž" into the correct one (for czech language). Usage:

  8. Skimmer Actions for PDF Viewer Skim To download, visit the Packal page Version: 2.2.1 Description This is a fairly simple workflow that works with the free Mac PDF app Skim. Skim is a fantastic app with great Applescript support. This workflow provides quick, easy access to a few custom Applescripts that I've written to deal with certain pesky problems I come across when dealing with PDFs.There are currently only 3 actions: Crop and Split PDFExtract Data and Search Google Scholar Search your PDFs First, Skimmer allows you to properly format those darned scanned PDFs.
  9. Reference Importer: search for an article/book from a variety of sources and import the corresponding reference data (BibTex, PDF) into BibDesk, copy BibTeX to clipboard, go to the landing page for the article, or copy a formatted reference. Also supports reference lookup from a PDF file. (This workflow was formerly known as "Citation Search" and "AIAA Search") (follow link to GitHub for a more detailed README and download) Update 5/22/2013: added conversion of non-latin characters to proper LaTeX. also removed default cite-key so that BibDesk can populate citekey with user defined st
  10. Hi -- I'm a long time Text Expander user that has fallen in love with Alfred, and am wondering if I can do everything I need with the latter. One thing I'm still struggling with is how to implement a system to enforce consistent filen aming conventions. Basically I need a system to help me stay disciplined about naming basic PDFs (home and business records) using a convention like YYYY-MM-DD - <vendor> - <account> - <purpose> So my bills would end up being something like 2018-01-15 - ATT - XX5555 - confirmation of invoice payment.pdf I've don
  11. I would love to create a workflow to automate the following steps but I have no idea how to go about it and would love to get some help to find a basis to start from: 1) select email in mail.app 2) invoke Alfred 3) type keyword "email to desktop" 4) workflow creates new folder on desktop and rename folder to date of selected email in mail.app + mail subject line (format "2017-12-21 1045 subject line") 5) workflow prints selected email to pdf 6) workflow saves all email attachment files into the same folder RESULT: - one new folder on the de
  12. Hi All! I'd love a workflow that lets me search easily through all the pdfs on my system. How awesome would it be to quickly bring up a pdf by section, or a past bookmark/annotation? I think it would make a library of pdfs much more accessible. Requesting this workflow/pointing me towards one that already exists/some ideas for how to start working on it. Thanks Max
  13. Here's a workflow that uses Applescript UI scripting to save the currently open Keynote document as a PDF. It uses the print dialog rather than the Export... menu item to give more flexibility in the layout etc. I've tried to comment the script so that the selections can be easily customized. It stops once the Save... dialog is open, so you can change the filename before saving if desired. This was an interesting project, which will save me lots of mouse clicks in the long term. It's surprising how little Applescript seems to have been written for Keynote.
  14. Hi, There was a Alfred v1 plugin which allowed to pick an image from finder, and convert it's format. I used it quite frequently to convert from png to jpg Another small feature that I would love to be able: 1) pick a bunch of images on finder 2) activate a trigger 3) convert all those images to a unique pdf With so many awesome workflows popping up i know it's just a matter of time. If anyone knows solutions for this please share. Cheers
  15. Hey everyone! I've built an AppleScript workflow that goes like this: Keyword: "pdf" (or Hotkey: CMD + SHIFT + P) Current Safari page renders in Safari Reader File > Export as PDF Auto-save The problem I'm having is that the 'Export as PDF' menu item doesn't work exactly like "Print to PDF." The PDF output has almost zero margins, no header/footer to identify a source, and it's just not as desirable as printing-to-PDF from the print dialogue (though it is more efficient code-wise). Can anyone here tweak the following script to produce the same result through the Print-to-PDF function?
  16. Hi, Having the downloads from Safari in the Downloads folder is perfectly fine for me for most cases, but sometimes (for automation reasons) I would like to be able to choose where to save a PDF (which is displayed by Safari). And I think a workflow would be great for that! I can probably figure out the last steps of such a workflow to choose the relevant folder with a Script Filter and save the PDF using AppleScript, but does anyone know how I can "extract/access" the PDF in the first place? Thanks a lot!
  17. I really like the file browser function in Alfred, specially for the ability to send files to Evernote. The problem is it won't send PDFs, but just stand there. If I try with a DOC file it works just fine. Any ideas? Thanks!
