  2. Mac M1 | Monterey 12.4 | Alfred 4.6.7 [1305] & Alfred 5.0.0-EA7_2043 I've uploaded a video to Dropbox - it's much easier & quicker to understand the issue that way: VIDEO IS HERE (you'll need to force a higher 'quality' on Dropbox to see it properly). Please excuse the end part about new workflows - that was an oversight on my part. However, the same 'latching' issue is present in the test workflow. It is also present in Alfred 5. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Original Post ISSUE OVERVIEW: I've been using a simple workflow for years; it opens Gmail in a specific browser. AlfredApp always used to keep my Gmail Workflow at the top of the results list. However, after selecting a different result once, AlfredApp refused to put the Gmail workflow back at the top of the list no matter what I did. Pressing 'Clear Knowledge' on the global page didn't fix the issue properly (as described below), and a bit of testing seems to show this issue is specifically related to it being a workflow (other file types respond as expected). DESCRIPTION: Previously I would invoke my 'Gmail' workflow using 'gm'. Even if I then selected another result using 'gm' (e.g. 'Gm chord variations') my Gmail option would remain at the top of the list (or at least work it's way back to the top - I forget which). However, the other day I typed in 'gm' and selected something else, and AlfredApp kept putting that at the top of my list. Even when I repeatedly typed in 'gm' and selected the Gmail workflow, the other selection would keep appearing at the top of the results list. It seems that AlfredApp responds as expected with other filetypes like folders and contacts, but not with the workflow. The workflow remains below any other filetypes that have been selected rather than rising to the top again. NOTE: I've included a screenshot of my workflow below. It's actually one workflow that contains a bunch of keyword triggers for opening web pages (you can see the Gmail option highlighted - 'gmail' is the keyword trigger). It has been working well and as-desired for years. TO REPLICATE: Select 'clear knowledge' on global page to clear the history. Invoke AlfredApp and enter 'gm' Select the Gmail workflow from the list Repeat step 2 and the Gmail workflow appears at the top of the list each time AS EXPECTED Invoke AlfredApp and enter 'gm' Select 'Gm__Synth_' folder Repeat step 2, and 'Gm__Synth_' appears at the top of the list each time AS EXPECTED Invoke AlfredApp and enter 'gm' Select the Gmail workflow from the list Repeat step 2, and 'Gm__Synth_' STILL appears at the top of the list each time NOT AS EXPECTED. GMAIL WORKLFLOW WAS THE LAST THING SELECTED AND SHOULD APPEAR AT THE TOP OF THE LIST ATTEMPTED FIXES: Clear Knowledge (doesn't work - see above) Alfred 5.0.0-EA7_2043 (doesn't work. Issue persists) Clear Application Cache (doesn't work) Rebuild macOS Data (doesn't work)
  3. https://github.com/zjn0505/adb-alfred/issues/33#issuecomment-1132584599 I got this issue for my workflow that I cannot reproduce it myself. It is a python3 workflow to utilize adb, the CLI tool used by all Android developers. The issue reporter can trigger the first "List devices" Scripti Filter action to show connected phones. When he selected one item to proceed to next Script Filter action "Show device optios", the workflow breaks, and Alfred panel disappears. The log ends when second script filter prints: Queuing argument '' I suggested him to replace the second script to the minimum function to add one hardcoded item, but it is still the same result. The workflow lib is taken from a previous commit of https://github.com/NorthIsUp/alfred-workflow-py3
  4. I'm trying to find out what causes this weird issue: I use Alfred 4 on Catalina with Cmd+Space to activate and Cmd+Shift+C for the clipboard history. This works great on my iMac, but on my Macbook I have the following issue. Whenever I use one of the shortcuts on a password input field in Firefox, all shortcuts stop working. By running open -a "Alfred 4" in the console, the shortcut is finally executed and the right window pops up. The process is running all this time, which I verified by running ps aux | grep Alfred. The PID stays the same throughout. I also ran the ShortcutDetective app, to confirm that nobody else catches the shortcut instead. It shows me that Alfred is still responsible for the shortcut. I have no idea why this happens. Is there some way to get debug output from Alfred to see what might be the issue? Anyone else seen this? I'm using Alfred 4.6.3, macOS 12.2.1, and Firefox 97.0.1
  5. Hello, The Alfred workflow editor is still inaccessible with VoiceOver on Mac OS. This was my primary reason for purchasing the power pack, so the fact that this makes workflows unusable, as the keywords and hotkeys for them are stripped on import, and I cannot make my own, means I have just wasted my money and will have to look elsewhere. To reproduce, simply enable VoiceOver, open Alfred preferences, select workflows in the sidebar, select a workflow in the table, and attempt to edit it with VoiceOver keyboard commands.
  6. Hello! I am aware of this page: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/advanced/sync/ What I have done: Set my sync folder to "~/Documents/Alfred/". I do have iCloud Drive enabled but Desktop & Documents folder is disabled (so it's technically not syncing to anything, I just moved the folder location; should I have done this?) Force quit all Alfred processes and reopened (done after the issues came up) Issues that have occurred: Alfred Hotkey does not work. It was on "⌘Space" before changing the folder. After setting it to the folder (and restarting), the Hotkey was still set, but didn't work. I changed it to something else, and back again, and "⌘Space" does not work. Spotlight is not using this keyboard shortcut either so there are no conflicts. Snippets Auto-Expansion is still checked but does not do anything. Unchecking and re-checking does not change anything. Themes are not recognised when using Alfred (i.e. if I Spotlight for Alfred, then the window opens up, my theme is not applied, despite a theme being selected within Alfred Preferences) How we looks (Appearance → Options) does reflect any of the checkboxes. I don't really use any of the other stuff mentioned soon the page I linked above, so I cannot confirm if things are the way they should be. In the meantime, can someone please tell me how to revert what I have done? I quit Alfred, removed "Alfred.alfredpreferences" from the folder and opened Alfred again. Then the message came up about preferences not being found, and continued on. Everything went back to normal. My setup: macOS Big Sur Version 11.5.1 (20G80) Alfred Version 4.5.1 (1256) (20F71) Thanks for your time.
  7. Minor nit: "Occurrences" should have two 'r's.
  8. macOS 11.2 Alfred I have some workflows that dump columnar text into LargeType. For some reason, the wrapping gets crazy sometimes. Long lines, especially ones containing many spaces end up with soft line breaks all over the place. I think pictures are worth 1000 words here, so here are a few as well as a workflow that you can download to replicate these: LargeType Odd Wrapping.alfredworkflow The workflow trigger is keyword "jibber" It generates 10 lines of random text, in 2 columns It accepts an optional parameter in the format #words:separator. e.g "5:=" Default is 8 words, with space as the delimiter The first column contains the words, the 2nd column is the md5 hash of those words Output is passed on to LargeType (and copied to the clipboard) This produces the following output: Since the text has also been copied to the clipboard, you can paste into Sublime Text etc to verify that is was correctly formatted prior to being displayed by Alfred. Using 4 words or less produces clean output for some reason: Using 5+ words (`jibber 5`) triggers the wrapping problem for me: Using `_` as a separator to join the words (`jibber 8:_`) reduces the problem somewhat (with the exception of the FIRST line for some reason) These are my general LargeType feature settings (font=SF Mono however I have tried other proportional as well as monospace fonts and while the sizing changes a bit, overall the bug is still reproducible regardless of font) @Andrew hoping you can have a look. Thank you!
  9. I've noticed that many OpenSearch providers (granted there aren't that many it seems) end up with HTML-encoded ampersands in the detected URL, for example: http://camelcamelcamel.com/search?utm_campaign=osd&amp;utm_source=chrome&amp;utm_medium=www&amp;q={query} Alfred should not HTML-encoded ampersands, given that this is the actual URL in the Open Search definition: <Url type="text/html" rel="results" template="http://camelcamelcamel.com/search?utm_campaign=osd&utm_source=chrome&utm_medium=www&q={searchTerms}"/>
  10. This happens to me once a day at least. I work almost exclusively in fullscreen or split screen on macOS 10.15 and I use alfred for just about everything. The macOS switcher is broken at times, switching to the wrong window, etc, and so I just use alfred. When I open my laptop, the computer switches from single screen to double screen mode, and the Alfred bezel will not show up anywhere. I can activate Alfred, and the window focus changes, and I can type text and it'll do what I want, but I never get to see what I'm doing. Switching between windows the bezel is almost never active long enough that I care, but navigating any workflows, clipboard history, or anything else is impossible. The only preference I can see as relevant is: "Show Alfred on" which I have set to "mouse screen" When I close my laptop, the proper functionality is restored. I'm sorry to say that the bug presents itself often, but not every time.
  11. Korean Hanja input does not work properly on Alfred. Unlike Chinese or Japanese input, Korean Hanja input is an optional conversion function, so the users need to activate the conversion lists by pressing option+return after typing one complete combination of hangeul letters. On Alfred, the suggestion list appears but I cannot choose the next suggestions by pressing the direction key (↓), and sometimes the list is behind the Alfred textbox so it is invisible. (the suggestion list is behind the Alfred sometimes.) I hope this issue is resolved. Add) My macOS version is 10.14 Mojave.
  12. Once upon a time, I was able to change the color of text selection in custom themes. Fn key seems to show selected text in theme window; however, the option to change color remains on 'font color'. Am I missing something here?
  13. Hi, after typing "define" keyword into search bar it crashes. I've noticed I can type up to letters and then it crashes hard and have to launch the app again. Anyone else experienced this? I was just testing the features when I can across this as I am a brand new user. A
  14. Alfred crashes each time I try to access the clipboard manager. macOS 10.13.1, iMac 27" 5K late 2015. The gif is below. Alfred build: 3.5.1 It's only happened since the latest macOS update. https://imgur.com/LQ90oHm
  15. Hey Support team, Today I enabled SIP again for my macOS High Sierra 10.13.1; suddenly my Alfred 3.5.1 decides to reset itself. All the preferences are gone and all my workflows are vanished. Anyway I could get them back and what is causing this problem? Thanks.
  16. Unpredictably yet frequently Alfred 3 will take a full second to respond to my hotkey (currently command-space). This problem started when I got a new MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016) and transferred my settings. Using Mac OS X 10.12.6 (16G29). Steps to reproduce: Invoke Alfred Press esc and repeat step 1 until the invocation delay occurs This can take me anywhere from 1 to 100 tries before it happens again. It's very unpredictable, though usually happens on my first try after a few minutes. In other cases the first try will respond instantaneously, but the 2nd try will not. This is suuuuper duper annoying. It makes Alfred unusable for me (BTW I'm a "Mega Supporter" and long-time evangelist of Alfred). Attempted fixes: Removed Alfred 3 settings entirely from ~/Library/Application Support Removed old Alfred 2 settings and Alfred 3 settings from ~/Library/Application Support Reinstalled Alfred Quit all other apps and watched Activity Monitor while reproducing the issue (saw nothing obvious) Restarted computer Here is an excerpt of things I'm seeing in Console.app near when the issue occurs.

  17. Working with latest version of Alfred (3.4.1 [860]) on MacOS Sierra 10.12.5, and using OneNote 15.37. iMac Retina 5K from late 2015. Snippets don't expand when entering a Keyword, instead it pastes the clipboard. Snippets do work when activating the Viewer and selecting one. Happy to record a short video of this bug if that would be helpful!
  18. Hey there! Long time user, first time reporter. I got a new laptop recently and updated my theme to match. I noticed that for whatever reason, when typing into this theme, there was some input lag. That's weird, since I've never experienced that with any other theme. Just to verify, I swapped back to some defaults and other themes I made. Nothing else exhibited the same behavior. The theme is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5t1bvxv5glcn1ph/laggy_theme.alfredappearance?dl=0 I've attached my system specs (there's an AMD graphics card not shown). I'm using Alfred v3.4 [850], the most recent one. I realize this isn't the most helpful bug report to reproduce, so i'm happy to supply any other information you need. Thanks a bunch!
  19. Hello everybody, I've seen that this was briefly discussed here before, but since the OP didn't reply further, I assume the thread was closed, since I cannot reply there. So I reopen the issue. I'm running the latest Alfred, v 3.3 [801] on a 2016 13" MacBook Pro with TouchBar, also running the latest official Sierra 10.12.3 (non-beta). The issue I'm having is as described there: Download any non-MAS app; Open it with Alfred after installation by drag & drop in /Applications Alfred hangs, its window blocking the Gatekeeper confirmation behind it (so killing Alfred from the Activity Monitor is the only way of 'solving' the issue). I got this bug with absolutely every app I've installed. The latest, a couple of minutes ago, being AppDelete. So while I don't know or understand the cause, I just wanted to report that the bug is still here.
  20. Alfred version 3.2 pre-release (757) It's a little hard to explain, so here's a workflow to demonstrate the bug. And a screenshot: When External Trigger "target" is called the first time via the top row of elements, the variables are correctly passed to the red Script Filter. However, when the red Script Filter calls itself via the same external trigger, no variables are passed to the Script Filter by External Trigger "target". The variables are passed to Debug and Run Script objects (not visible in the screenshot). arg/query is passed correctly. EDIT: Here's the bug in action:
  21. What you were doing when the issue happenedI was trying to "Add iOS Remote" and an alert popped up in the Alfred settings pane. It says ""Alfred Remote Server needs to be running to add a new iOS Remote. Tick the "Enable Alfred Remote Server" checkbox to start Alfred Remote Server."" I notice that the message said "Tick", I wasn't sure if this was the right word for this action to fix the problem so this is why I am reporting it. Is it supposed to say "Click" instead of "Tick"? Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same actionYes, click Remote> Un-check the "Enable Alfred Remote Server" checkbox (if Enabled)> Add iOS Remote Include any screenshots that might help us Include the Alfred version & build number you are usingv3.0 [648] Include your OS X version ​10.11.5 (15F34) Thanks
  22. This forum description states "Bug reports or feature suggestions shouldn't be posted in this forum" but does not indicate where you want feedback or bugs for v3 reported. Clicking Help->Report a Bug in v3 takes us to the v2 Report a Bug page. How do we give you beta feedback? Thank you for making such an awesome app! Doug aka djuggler
  23. I installed Alfred 1.2 from the App Store. Then realized that the newest versions were not being installed via the App Store, so I deleted the App Store version and installed Alfred v2 from the web site. Current setup: * Alfred 2.8.3 (435) * OS X 10.11.3 So the bug is: I have Parallels Desktop installed (normal install; app is located at /Applications/Parallels Desktop.app). When searching with Alfred it will not find Parallels Desktop. Typing "par" locates only "Parental Controls". Typing "parallel" just prompts me to search the web. Ditto "parallels desktop". I checked Spotlight. Spotlight finds the app if I type "par" or "parallel" just fine. To be on the safe side I rebuilt the Spotlight metadata index yesterday, which resulted in no change to Spotlight's ability to locate Parallels, nor in Alfred's inability to locate the app. I also checked several other apps that are installed. Alfred found all of them without incident. I use Parallels quite a bit and it's awfully frustrating to have to switch to spotlight or Launchpad to open it when I'm used to opening everything via Alfred.
  24. Hi, I've configured Alfred to search for my Safari bookmarks; however, none are ever shown. I don't recall this ever working for me. Could this be a permissions or privacy/security issue? Running "repair disk permissions" in Disk Utility.app does nothing. Here's a screenshot of my preferences. Here's a movie of the behavior. Other relevant data: MacOS X 10.10.3 Alfred v2.7 (385) thanks, Chris
