  1. Not sure if this has been requested, but I was dissapointed to see that the "Snippets" feature was not touched in this last 4.0 update. I would love to be able to create snippets that interacted and requested info based on how you define it. For instance, if my snippet is defined as: "Your name is %name%", when executed, a prompt will request the %name% value and then paste the shortcut --> "Your name is Christian". I am trying to use RocketTypist to do this but it's buggy, this would be a nice addition to the snippet feature in Alfred, which I have found to be very respon
  2. Hi there, IMO adding a turn-on/off shortcut of Alfred Snippet would be extremely convenient... I know that we’re allowed to exclude some apps out of the Alfred Snippet. However, there are always some special cases that I wanna turn off the Alfred Snippet temporarily in the apps where I always prefer Alfred Snippet support.
  3. I found myself chatting with people from time to time and needing to send equations. Obviously when Latex is available it's preferable but sometimes it's not. As a result I need a solution that requires zero installs but formats text a little better than you can get with the standard characters on the keyboard. Example: let's not say x^2 but x². Let's not say sqrt(x) but √(x). I want to be able to do this without looking up characters in a character table and I don't want it to add to how much I have to type much. Enter snippets. They allow for decently complex notation without needing L
  4. Using Alfred 4 + Powerpack... I want to migrate from another text expander and keep everything in Alfred. Is there a way to require a delimiter such as a space, period, question mark, etc. in order to autoexpand a snippet? Other text expanders do that. Is there a way to create a shortcut to open the Snippets window directly without having to access Alfred Preferences and then select "Snippets" from the sidebar? I would like a fast way to make a selection into a snippet. Thanks!
  5. Hi alfredders I love Alfred and struggle to find anything wrong with it. It has managed to substitute lots of tiny utility apps (weather, calculator, clipboard manager... Just to name the first that come to mind). For my line of work I type frequently the same text over and over and over. I've been using Typinator in the past and love its Input Field options (see attached screenshots). I was wondering if there was something similar in development for future version of Alfred or - EVEN BETTER - if a workflow already exists to achieve a similar result. In short I'd like
  6. If you are a STEM student, you might have been familiar with the markup language LaTex. Typing equations in LaTex is painful and it is almost impossible to compile the latex document without getting an error once or twice. To facilitate writing LaTex documents, I have created a comprehensive (more than 2000) snippets especially dedicated to latex greek letters. Example usage: Type this: \\a This expands to: \alpha Type this: \\ax This expands to: $\alpha$ and so on. Here: prefix = \\ letter = a expands to =
  7. Hi, I accidentally deleted my main collection of snippets, instead of just the one individual snippet inside that collection (wasn't paying attention to which '+/-' I was pressing). I don't have a sync location set and unfortunately don't have a time machine backup - does anyone know where the alfdb file goes when it's deleted? Not in trash, hoping it's still recoverable. Thanks in advance, any help is really appreciated!
  8. There are some ways to create and use the snippets in Alfred. 1. Using snip command . We can only see the command name, and copy the snippets but cant see the contents. 2. Using clipboard manager we can search and see the contents of snippets and copy it, but can not see the preview (eg. using shift key) Here, I would like to get help creating a workflow which will write the snippets to a file and quickview it. idea: command: qsnip hello effect: copies the snippet called hello and paste the contents "hello world" to a file
  9. Hi all, I accidentally deleted the whole collection instead of one snippet. Is there a way to retrieve that? Maybe something on the file system in the Library folder? Thanks in advance for your help. - Charlie
  10. Would love to have a way to import snippets already created in other apps into Alfred? I'm thinking apps like aText, TextExpander, etc?
  11. Hi there, Recently, I noticed that when I'm typing some snippet keyword will be picked up by computer, even I'm not within the Alfred box. Eg, I have snippet as 'name', when I was typing inside Bear notes, when I type name, the snippet content will pop up into the text field. Can you please look into this? Ian
  12. I'm trying to work out how to complete a second step in a new workflow that will streamline a workflow I use several times a day. I create Markdown notes throughout my day. I have a pretty basic workflow that runs a terminal command that, in turn, creates a file and opens it in my text editor. I then invoke a snippet that populates the note with predefined text, and multiple clipboard items that I save before I invoke the workflow. In other words: Save multiple bits of information to my Alfred clipboard in a predetermined sequence Run a terminal command through a
  13. I have tried multiple different settings to fix it, but whenever I expand a snippet into Word, it reformats the paragraph spacing, messing with my document. Is there an option (in either Word or Alfred) to fix this? Thanks!
  14. This is very minor, but also maybe very easy to adjust? In the Snippets section, can the ‘add’ and ‘remove’ buttons be oriented with the left side of their respective fields? It’s silly, but I click 'add collection’ all the time meaning to click ‘add snippet’ because it’s visually near to the field, and since we read left to right, I think orienting the GUI that way improves the flow. Plus, if they were both oriented to the left it would be less distance to travel between mouse clicks; microseconds in efficiency!
  15. I noticed that when I use text expansion in VS Code, the snippets don't expand fully. It seems to occur when the Markdown All in One extension is enabled. I've opened an issue here: Text snippets don't expand correctly when using text expansion, with Markdown All in One enabled · Issue #200 · neilsustc/vscode-markdown. I did some additional testing with TextExpander and I wasn't able to reproduce the issue when I expanded snippets in TextExpander, when the Markdown All in One extension is enabled in VS Code. Would there be something about how Alfred expands snippets tha
  16. Is there a way to use rich text in snippets such as links or formatted text?
  17. Hi When I click on 'Automatically expand snippets by keyword' the Alfred Text Service dialog is coming up but when I click on 'Let's get started!' then nothing happens. System Preferences is not coming nor is the dialog box to ask for permission. If I go to the Security & Privacy / Privacy tab there is nothing shown. I, eventually, was able to fix it by using 'Path Finder', go into Alfred3 package content and drag the Alfred Text Service into the Security & Privacy / Privacy tab.
  18. Hi all, I'm trying to use snippets to insert symbols (up arrow, down arrow, etc.) into anki cards on a Mac. My goal is to be able to insert them when making Anki cards but I am clueless on where to begin. Can someone point me in the right direction on where to learn? Thanks!
  19. Hi. Trying to create an Alfred snippet that calculates a delta value from 'now' to a specific time or date. In short, I'd like to put a hard date in a snippet, and every time I insert it, the result is the number of 'days' or 'hours' between now and that hard date or time. Thoughts? Thanks!
  20. I know I can export my snippets into a `.alfredsnippets` file. Is it possible to export into another format, or convert that format into something like a `.csv` file? I don't intend moving to another service but I don't like being locked into a specific format after putting so much effort into my collections. Also, it would be great to be able to work on my snippets in my text edit where I can modify, add to, and maintain my collection as a `.csv`, or something similar. I imagine this is a little controversial because there are so many competing products. At the same time, I'd feel
  21. Hi everyone! I built something and wanted to let you know I wanted to make some snippets for HTML entities (I know there are some databases available, but I wanted to customise some of the keywords to my own liking). I searched online for something that would let me maintain a spreadsheet and convert that into the .alfredsnippet format. Found a few Python scripts but I wanted something simpler, so I built a quick in-browser that lets you copy a bunch of spreadsheet cells (copied cells are in TSV format), paste it into a big ol' textarea, and it'll generate/download th
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
  24. Snippets please support gif and image~! So I can input image emoji by snippets. In China, It's popular to send emoji while chatting online, if alfred snippet support image and gif, it will earn many Chinese user!! example: While input "!jump", I hope it become flowing gif tiao.gif
  25. So I recently wants to make a complete LaTeX Snippet auto completion by Alfred. So I stole some codes and put it together. The file is hosted on GitHub right now: The LaTeX Subsitutions.plist comes from LaTeXSubstitutionPlist. The original Python script comes from alfred-snippets, and I modified it to fit my need. Use it as normal LaTeX symbols but adding a backslash \ to complete the shortcut to prevent conflicts. For example: \alpha\ expands to α The download link is below: File Link
