  1. This issue appears to be straight forward but is persistent upon reinstallation of Alfred v02. Initially, I thought that I had neglected to uninstall v01 prior to installing v02 and the Powerpack but when uninstalling all Alfred apps/references, two fedoras again appear on my Macbook toolbar - 1 referencing v01 and the other more recent v02. Each has its own 'Preferences' tab and appears to overwrite the other upon making changes. Again, I've attempted to uninstall all Alfred applications using an uninstaller app but upon reinstalling, the issue appears once again. Any thoughts?
  2. Hey Andrew, I just did a clean install of OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 and did a fresh clean install of Alfred 2.1.1, too (no workflows, plain fresh and clean), and whenever I try to change a setting or import any skin, on next launch the setting is reset and the skin is gone I have tried repairing disk permissions with no luck, then tried changing the permissions myself with no luck either, then tried enabling sync and set to sync in non-dropbox folder then in dropbox and none worked either I can't do anything without Alfred, so what is happening? Could it be that Alfred is not fully compa
  3. I have never been able to access any of my OS system preferences from Alfred. I have ensured that the "Preferences" is checked under "Essentials". To do my own troubleshooting, I have unchecked that before, quit alfred, and then restarted my computer, restarted alfred and then tried again all to no avail. I'm used to just trashing preferences in these scenarios, however, I do not want to lose all my precious Alfred settings, folders to search, file types to index, etc. Are there other options that I'm just overlooking? I'm running 10.8.4 and running Alfred 2.0.7 (although this has
  4. Would be wonderful to implement workflows with Preferences into the Alfred Feature Preferences. Workflows like Dropbox Evernote Notes with New Text File UniCall and others...
  5. Hi guys, wouldn't it be useful if the user would directly get to the preferences of the workflow that currently is triggered (keyword is entered into Alfred) when opening them? When some workflow doesn't behave how I want it to, then I'll open the preferences, but I always have to search for it first – this repeated itself often enough that I think there should be a solution for it ;-) Cheers!
  6. Nloc - network location switcher for Alfred I use the OS X `network locations` feature quite often. It allows me to comfortably switch between networks, without setting the proxies, DNS and other parameters every time. So I wrote this workflow to do it even faster. Usage: nloc network_location_name Workflow supports autocompletion of known network locations: Download: Up-to-date workflow bundles can be downloaded here. NOTE: Due to changes in security policy on OS X 10.8, system _will_ ask you for your password after executing the workflow. OS X 10.7 system won'
  7. I'm a new user... I recently installed Alfred 2.0.3 and I really like the app, but I'm having some trouble with getting my preferences to persist. I've tried the suggestions listed on http://support.alfredapp.com/kb:persisting-preferences, but none of them helped. I did some investigation, and it looks like the changes I make to hotkey, startup option, and all appearance changes are remembered consistently. But any changes I make to "Where are you", the features section, etc, are all forgotten as soon as I close the preferences window. Any ideas on how I can resolve this issue? Than
  8. Bash Workflow Handler As my OmniFocus workflow does most of its work in the shell, I created a bash workflow handler to reduce the overhead when creating feedback xml and dealing with preferences. Download Download it from GitHub and put it into your workflow directory. Usage Import handler into your script . workflowHandler.sh Create feedback XML # create feedback entries addResult "uid" "arg" "title" "subtitle" "icon" "valid" "autocomplete" # get feedback xml getXMLResults Get BundleID BUNDLEID="$(getBundeId)" Get data dir DATADIR=$(getDataDir) Ge
  9. Trying to open Preferences from the Hat in the Menu bar. I get the crash consistently. I'm on Alfred 2.0.1, I presume. I just downloaded and installed it and it had the migrate from v1 options. In addition, I did a Check for Updates and it says the latest is running. I'm on 10.8.3. Here is the crash report: Process: Alfred Preferences [326] Path: /Applications/Alfred 2.app/Contents/Preferences/Alfred Preferences.app/Contents/MacOS/Alfred Preferences Identifier: com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred-Preferences Version: 2.0 (1) Code Type: X86-64 (Nativ
  10. Its so time consuming to launch Alfred and then then click on the little gear icon to go to Alfred Preferences. Is there a workflow or applescript that I can assign a hotkey to open Alfred Preferences? This would help a great deal. Thank you in advance for anyone who has suggestions!
  11. Please add ⌘+F in the Alfred Preferences window to search for workflows.
  12. hello, after editing and quitting my preferences they go back to default. even after a restart. sometimes some points like 1password bookmark settings are kept but go back to default after restart. i upgraded from afred 1 to alfred 2. my language is german. i'm on osx 10.8.3 and alfred 2.0.1 (173) thank you.
  13. I think every Alfred power-user is keyboard Geek. We want to navigate through OS X using keyboard shortcuts as much as possible because it is fast as hell comparing with mouse actions. So why don’t make navigating through Alfred Preferences tabs faster by using keyboard shortcuts to switch them? I really like the idea of switching tabs in Mac App Store app using Cmd+1 … Cmd+5.
  14. Hi, I've been using Alfred for forever and practically can't work without it. I upgraded today to v2 and had a very bad upgrade experience - Migration did not restart Alfred nor shut down Alfred v1, the features tab did not load and currently I'm stuck with a non functioning Alfred and the preferences window never loads and always crash. What I did - - I downloaded Alfred Alfred_2.0.1_173 (and upgraded to the Mega Supporter license), Installed it, pressed the Migrate button but Alfred did not restart. - Restarted manually, quitted Alfred v1 manually, Alfred v2 loaded but I got
  15. I just created a new Keyword to AppleScript workflow and tested it and everything works. BUT I don't see the workflow in the list of workflows in Alfred's preferences. Search doesn't find it either. And yet it still appears when I type in the keyword. Not sure if I'm missing something or if there's a bug here, but wanted to flag it.
  16. Hi, I love the new Alfred 2 and using it on a daily basis. I have two suggestions on Alfred features. 1. Alfred Preferences windows always appears sticky to the bottom edge of my screen. Is it intentional? I prefer it to stick to the top edge (right below the menu bar) of the screen. My specs in case you need it: Macbook Pro 13" Retina. 2. I created myself a workflow to show/hide/open apps with hotkeys. However, I have to double click the Action icon to see which app is on the list. Is it possible to have a title for an Action, say "Launch Finder"? This way I can see clearly th
