If you're having an issue with a workflow you've downloaded or one you're writing yourself, please follow these instructions. It will greatly increase your chances of getting a fast and useful response. It is extremely difficult to diagnose (let alone fix) a problem you're having unless we can reproduce it. If we can't, we're mostly just guessing. As such, it's very important that you provide what we need to do that, and post it in the right place. It can mean the difference between getting help within a few minutes and not getting it at all. Other people's workflows If you have an issue with a workflow you've downloaded, do the following: Make sure you're using the latest version of the workflow. The issue may have already been fixed, and it causes confusion if you are talking about a different version of the workflow to everybody else. Read the workflow's documentation and thread. If the workflow has documentation, read it. Find the workflow's thread and read at least the original post and the last few pages. It takes a few minutes, but it might take hours or days to get a reply on the forum. The lovely members of the Alfred community generously offer their software, expertise and limited time for free. Please respect that and avoid asking questions that are answered in the documentation or on the previous page of the thread. Do not start a new thread for your issue. It pollutes the forum, fragments the discussion, and depending on who wrote the workflow, the chances that the author will see your post range from excellent to almost zero. Instead, find the workflow's thread and post your issue in there. That way, the author (and other users of the workflow) will be notified of your post, and they're the best people to answer your question. If the workflow doesn't have a thread, it's likely the author isn't a forum member, and there's probably a better place to raise your issue (e.g. a GitHub issue if you got the workflow from GitHub). Provide a meaningful error. We can't diagnose a problem from "it's not working" or a screenshot of an error message in Alfred. Be specific. Use Alfred's debugger and post the output. If the workflow has a log file, include its contents, too (unless they're exactly the same as the debugger's). Remove any private data from debugger/log output before posting. You don't want to post your API keys or passwords on a public forum. Explain what you were doing. What did you click? What did you enter in Alfred? What did you expect to happen? What happened instead? Your own workflows If you're having a problem with a workflow you're writing, post the actual, non-working workflow. Upload it somewhere (Dropbox?) and post a link. Screenshots and code snippets are not enough. If we can't replicate the problem by running the workflow, we can only guess at what might be wrong. It is unreasonable to expect us to try to recreate your workflow from a code snippet simply in order to help you. Post the broken workflow, so we can run it ourselves. It saves everybody's time. In addition, you should also post: The version number of: Alfred macOS The version of any non-system language you're using (e.g. nodejs) The version of any non-system programs you're using (e.g. ffmpeg or youtube-dl) if they aren't bundled in your workflow Any changes you've made to your macOS environment (e.g. via launchctl setenv) or the language you're using (e.g. via Python's usercustomize.py or sitecustomize.py files) It might not seem relevant, but if your workflow isn't working and you don't know why, you're likely not in the best position to determine what's relevant and what isn't. So just post the lot. It'll help you get an answer faster. Thanks to @vitor and @phyllisstein, whose earlier posts on reporting issues were consolidated into this one.
When 1Password is locked on my machine the powerpack seems to work fine. It loads the site, and opens up 1Password mini in my menu bar and prompts for the master password. Once I authenticate it logs in as normal, works great. If I then logout of the website and try it again it opens the site in the browser and nothing more. Once I "lock" 1Password the functionality operates as it should for any website I have in my vault. Alfred - 2.8.2 (432) 1Password - 4.4.2 (442010) - Mac App Store OSX - 10.9.5 (13F1507) - Mavericks
mmcduffie posted a topic in Workflow Help & QuestionsRESOLVED: I had to check "with space" to differentiate two file filters with similar keywords (e.g. fc & fcf) or the results were always from the first keyword. Thanks to all for feedback and assistance. ------------ Original post ------------ Simple File Filter to Open File Workflow. When I use File Type = public.folder, the results include files from inside the folders and swamp out the folder results. Any ideas or is this normal? I have no idea if this worked in the last stable release as I never used this one before. My apologies if this has been covered but Google searches, the knowledge base and a quick scan of this form didn't reveal anything to help. Thanks, Mike
