  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. Is there a way to use rich text in snippets such as links or formatted text?
  5. 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.
  6. Hi guys, I use snippets a lot in Alfred 3, and I badly need a quicker way to edit existing snippets. They're so awesome! Please see 1st screenshot: if Cmd+S on selected snippet would open it directly (2nd screenshot) within Alfred preferences, that would be a simple but fantastic improvement! I'm suggesting Cmd+S for this because it is very similar to the already existing Cmd+S shortcut which transforms a clipping from clipboard history into a new snippet. Basically hitting Cmd+S would mean: "create a new snippet or open it for editing if it already exists
  7. 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!
  8. I was hoping to use Alfred's snippets to store and edit 'canned responses' across various email accounts I manage. It works beautifully for text, but any hyperlinks are dropped. That is, "click <a href='location'>here</a> for help" becomes "click here for help" I know in Gmail that copy/paste retains hyperlink data, but any copy/paste into a text editor will drop the hyperlinks (I assume this has to do with meta-something). I'm not even sure if the TextExpander tools feature something like this, but support for rich html snippets would be amazing!
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. I know this issue has been brought up on the Alfred forums previously with no resolution. Has anyone managed to find a way to have snippets automatically expand in Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 and Adobe InDesign CC 2017? I am currently using MacOS High Sierra. Text expansion is working in Adobe Photoshop CC 2017. I am evaluating whether I can use Alfred as a replacement for Text Expander, which does perform snippet expansion correctly in these applications. I am, of course, a Powerpack user.
  17. It would be great if one could change the snippet expansion sound. The current sound always sounds like an error to me.
  18. I find create snippets cumbersome, so I often don't do it. Is there an easier way to create snippets on the fly than opening up alfred preferences and filling things in there? It really seems like there should be a workflow where I can take something in my clipboard history and quickly make it into a saved snippet.
  19. I use the clipboard and snippets a lot for work, and we often test our websites in different Operating Systems and Browsers by means of VirtualBox. I use automatically expanding snippets to save time, but I noticed the snippets and the clipboard do not work inside of VirtualBox. I've used a program called aText (https://www.trankynam.com/atext/), which is able to paste into VirtualBox, so I believe it's possible.
  20. Keyboard maestro has a basic implementation for regex snippets and I was thinking it might be cool for Alfred to take it on. If I could be in whatever text editor/chatroom/whatever and have code shorthand to write something I useful, it opens up some interesting productivity opportunities. Currently with KM I use (⌥a) å.fill(text,count) to make text repeat a certain number of times. Useful when spamming texts haha! Anyway, let me know what you think.

  22. Hi guys, the new snippets auto expansion is nice. Thanks for such a great update! Anyway is it possible to set different format for {date} and {time} ?
