  1. I would love to start using Alfred’s file buffer more often, especially with some of the nice additions made in Alfred 4. However, Alfred is in dire need of better Finder-Buffer integration. Either of the following would solve this: a File Action that adds files to the Buffer, or a Hotkey that can be used to add files directly from Finder to the Buffer (i.e., in Preferences → Features → File Search → Buffer). Under the current setup, the ability to use a hotkey to file action files from Finder is great (Preferences → Features → Actions → Selection Hotkey), but it doesn’t help with situations where you want to action the file more than once. Several people have created workflows that effectively mimic Allred’s keystrokes, but they’re all pretty fragile (example). In addition, I still haven’t found any that work with multiple files. This feels like something that ought to be addressed on a system-wide basis. Alfred’s a great butler, but I think he can carry even more things! 😉 Thanks for your consideration.
  2. Here is a really shoddy work-around that allows a hotkey to add the current OS X selection (like a file in Finder) to Alfred's buffer. Hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing could make something better. http://www.packal.org/workflow/buffer-finder This is in response to requests from this forum:
  3. Hi, I wanted to delete two documents of my Downloads folder. I selected my documents (.flv files) using the buffer feature. Once my two files were selected, I hit the tab button, selected the Delete action, and hit Enter. Only one file was deleted. I tried with two .jpg files -> same result. Alfred version: Alfred 3 v3.5 (868). Mac version: Mac OS X 10.10.5.
  4. Alfred allows users to select multiple files in finder and press command+option+\ to run file action in Alfred file browser. Alfred also allows users to add files to buffer, but only files from Alfred file browser. I am wondering if Alfred could add files I selected in Finder to buffer.
  5. I've not been a big user of the File buffer, but I'd love it if there was a feature much the like the File buffer, but not. Something more like "File dock". So, basically the same as file buffer except: Files can only be removed by the user manually. Never automatically. I'd like to be able to add workflows there. I'd love to be able to drag files into these icons. ( Just imagine typing "find some-file.jpg" and dragging that into the photoshop icon above, for instance. Aaah the possibilities... ) I understand that as it is, file buffer would either have to be somehow extended, changed or replaced by this feature, so that the File dock icons could be placed in the same position. So I don't know, but I'd love it if the icons would sit in the same position as in the screenshot.
  6. Context: * When using the File Buffer, alt is the default modifier and pressing alt + backspace removes all items from the buffer. * When the "Compatibility: Use shift+alt as modifier key" toggle is checked, shift + alt is required to interact with the buffer. Current Behavior: When the "Compatibility" toggle is checked... - pressing alt + backspace still removes all items from the buffer, with or without pressing the shift key Expected Behavior: When the "Compatibility" toggle is checked... - pressing alt + backspace should not remove items from the buffer - pressing shift + alt + backspace would remove all items from the buffer Alfred version & build number: 2.7.1 (387) OS X version: Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46) Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/76tB5xc.png
  7. Often I'll have to open three or four apps to work on something, and then once I'm done with that task I want to quit just the apps I don't need any more. I can use the quit function to quit them all individually, but this is pretty tedious and time consuming when I have a lot of other apps in use. It would be awesome if I were able to select the ones I want to quit and then execute quit on just them, similar to the option+up buffer feature for files. I'm looking for a workflow that is able to do this.
  8. 1°) What was I doing when the issue happened? - Was trying to add .rar files to Alfred's Buffer on my Mac Mini. Failed. - Tried the same action on my MacBook. Succeded. - Tried to do the same action with .txt files on my Mac Mini. Failed. - Checked Alfred's Buffer settings. Everything looks normal. - Closed and relaunched Alfred. Still failed at adding .rar files to the Buffer. No keyboard shortcut conflict involved. 2°) Was I able to replicate the test ? Yes. 4 times. 3°) Alfred version : Alfred 2 v2.6 (374) (on both Macs) 4°) OS X version: OS X Yosemite (on both Macs)
  9. I was super pleasantly surprised that drag + drop works from inside Alfred window. Making my workflows a breeze when I want to put a file inside say gmail. One problem is, I need to first open a gmail window, and then search for the file. A lot of times, I fist search the file, then open the gmail window, then search for the file again to drag&drop it. I tried to buffer the file before, so when I next open Alfred, I won't have to search the file again. This didn't seem to work. Please consider adding this awesome feature to Alfred as well. So I can save files to buffer, and then drag and drop out of the buffer.
  10. When resting cursor on furthest edge of first row: When resting cursor on first item of second row: Alfred 2.1.1 (227) on OS X 10.9.1 (13B42). Replicated: yes
  11. Quick questions just to understand what's possible between workflows and the buffer: 1. When executing a workflow is the buffer always automatically cleared if that option is set in preferences? 2. Is there a way to execute an action, but not clear the buffer or even set an action to ignore the buffer? 3. Is there any way to add or remove items to the buffer in a workflow? I know these are simple questions, I'm just trying to understand how it works.
  12. Add 2 or more items to buffer; action buffer 'Drag' an icon from the right side of the window to any other point. The window will move, but the popover for that icon does not disappear. When 'dragging' the buffer icons from Alfred's main search area, the window does not move and the popover disappears. Here's what it looks like: Alfred 2.0.5 (202) on OS X 10.8.4 (12E55). Replicated: yes
  13. So I haven't experienced this before and I've been using the latest version of Alfred 2, but when I changed my theme this morning and then added some applications to Alfred's buffer, the icons were all upside down. This doesn't happen when adding icons from Alfred's file browser, and they get reset (so that they're upside up) if you toggle Alfred's visibility a couple of times. Not a big deal at all, but I'm miffed!
  14. When you limit the files displayed in Alfred, e.g., ~/Desktop/*.jpg, with the intention of conducting an operation on all of them, e.g., delete, move, etc. You have to add all of them to the buffer individually. True, you can use the add to buffer and select next hot key to speed up the process but it would be even better to have a select all option, e.g., ⌥A, or something similar.
  15. Currently, Alfred's file buffer uses a set icon size instead of matching the size of result icons. For the visually impaired (or just plain picky, like me ) user where a larger icon is needed, a dynamic size may be better. Finally, for a buffer containing more icons than Alfred is wide: the latest icon should align right, and the icon at the farthest left should be gradually faded out, to indicate there are more behind it. An ellipsis of sorts. Currently, the only way I know Alfred has more files in his buffer is because of the whitespace at the far right, a result of the buffer matching my window width. Cheers
