  1. Hi everyone! A few Alfred starter questions. It's going to be quite a long list, as the more I use this wonderful software, the more eager I get to explore its capabilities. 1. Text expansion: do you folks prefer to use macOS's text replacement feature or Alfred's snippets? Alfred's offering is superior, of course, but macOS text replacements can be synced to mobile iOS devices, which is very compelling. 2. We all know macOS's open and save dialogs are a nightmare, especially after you're used to efficient keyboard navigation with Alfred. Is there ANY way whatsoever to apply Alfred's basic File Search capabilities to the open and save panels? If not, is there any other software that can offer this? 3. I would like to know if there is a way to perform a more intelligent file search (I believe this is also called "fuzzy" search, correct me if I'm wrong) in Alfred. For example, let's say I have the following directory: I expect Alfred to find the folder "Red" only if I type a partial string like "do cha re". Similarly, if I type something such as "do cha bl en", ideally Alfed would find "Engine.jpg" inside "/Blue". Launch Bar behaves like this and it works very well! It would be amazing if Alfred would do the same. 4. Is a difference between pressing `⌘+C` (copying) and hitting `↵` (selecting) on an item from the clipboard history? 5. I noticed that when interacting (whether copying or selecting) with a clipboard item, that item jumps to the top of the list. Is there any way to disable that? 6. Is it possible to activate Quick Look on clipboard items? 7. Is it possible to open the File Action menu for items in the clipboard history? Some of the clipboard items are files for all intents and purposes, so making them compatible with File Actions is almost a no-brainer. And I can definitely imagine various File Actions for other clipboard items that are not "files" per se, such as copied images and texts (like Imgur uploading for the former, and creating a new note in Notes for the latter). Thank you very much!
  2. Alfred 3.6, macOS 10.13.3 I have the Clipboard Viewer Hotkey set to Command-Control-spacebar but Alfred is not responding to it, instead responding to Command-Option-Spacebar which is clashing with an InDesign CC keyboard command. I've quit Alfred and relaunched but this didn't resolve the issue. I've also tried to toggle the hotkey to something else and back again but Alfred would not accept a new hotkey.
  3. Hello, When I copy an image from my screenshot software (Snagit), I can directly past it in another place (it confirms that the image is well copied), but it is not correctly stored in the Clipboard history of Alfred as you can see in the following screenshot (and if I try to paste it from the Alfred clipboard history, it does not works) : Alfred 3.6 - Build 903 macOS 10.13.3 NB : I did not have this issue with my previous clipboard manager (Paste).
  4. v3.6 [903] - High Sierra 10.13.3 Steps to reproduce: - trigger the clipboard viewer - choose an entry then Cmd+S to create a snippet from this entry - give the snippet a name, then save The snippet you just supposedly created is nowhere to be found :-/
  5. 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". That would feel very intuitive! After hitting Cmd+S, this window would popup to make you able to quickly update the existing snippet. Thanks! Vermeer
  6. Hi All Apologies if this has already been dealt with (I have searched and not found any conclusive answer on the forum). Is there a way to have curly bracket placeholders other than {query} - specifically {clipboard:0}, {clipboard:1}, {clipboard:2}, ... - evaluated within a php script? It appears that {clipboard:7} does not get evaluated upon initialisation like {query} does, but rather remains a placeholder right up to the moment where it is passed to some Alfred output such as Large Type, and only then is the clipboard value retrieved from the DB. Code example: $query = "{query}"; // $query has been assigned the value passed to the script $i = 7; $history_item = "{clipboard:$i}"; // $history_item has not been assigned any value from the clipboad stack - it holds the literal string value '{clipboard:7}' That means I can't access, search, and manipulate the clipboard history items within my code. Will I need to query clipboard.alfdb manually, or is there a simpler solution? All help appreciated
  7. Hello, Using Alfred 3 + Powerpack on Sierra, all latest versions, using the Clipboard, I am able to copy text and copy images, but as soon as the copied item includes both text (arrow below) and an image (red box below), Alfred only displays the text in the clipboard history. Thank you for your time and help this is what I wanted to copy: one line of text (underlined + arrow) + image below (in box)
  8. Hi! I am using the clipboard manager Unclutter. When writing a workflow for pasting generated passwords, they keep showing up in the clipboard list, despite me checking the box "Mark item as transient in clipboard", when using the Copy to Clipboard Output. macOS 10.13.1 Alfred v.3.5.1[883]
  9. Hello, I don't use Alfred currently to manage my clipboard (I use the app Paste) for one single reason : In Paste, I can select multiple results (with the shift key) to paste all the results at the same time, which seems to be impossible in Alfred. Is there any solution to do that in Alfred, or is it planned in a future release ? This topic is about the clipboard, but I have exactly the same issue with Chrome bookmarks results in Alfred : I would like to be able to select more than one result to open the selection in several tabs (my workaround today is to create workflows, but it would be way more efficient to just be able to select multiple results for your search, like selecting multiple files in Finder). Anyway, thanks for this great app that I use everyday. Edit : Added a video
  10. Hi guys! I keep seeing a weird little issue with Alfred 3.5.1 and I just wanted to ask if you've heard about it before: Oftentimes when I wake my MacBook Pro from sleep in the morning, Alfred's clipboard viewer will be stuck on the screen, with Alfred not responding to shortcuts or anything like that - I can move down the clipboard list (so the viewer is at least responding to the arrow keys), but I cannot do anything else with Alfred and I cannot make the clipboard viewer go away, no matter what I do. It stays on top of everything else and just sits there, the only way to get rid of it is to quit Alfred via the menu bar item. I guess the issue first came up a couple of months ago (I'm pretty sure it was after Alfred 3.5.1 was released) and it always goes away without me doing anything and then comes back a couple of days or a week later. For the last couple of days the clipboard viewer has been stuck on screen consistently every morning - and while it is not a problem or a big deal at all and just a tiny little bit annoying, I figured I'd ask in the forum if this has been mentioned before. I couldn't find anything via the forum search, so I started a new topic. Thanks & cheers, Anna - Alfred 3.5.1 - macOS Sierra 10.12.6 - MacBook Pro Retina, 15", mid 2015
  11. Its very common that I want to past text as "plain text". For example If i copy formatted text I want to be able to paste it with clipboard without the formattation, ie plain text. Thanks
  12. Hey Forum, I use Alfred's clipboard manager ~100 times per day, often in a terminal window. However I am using iTerm2's hotkey (⌥<Space>) window which opens the terminal as an overlay. Unfortunately, triggering the clipboard manager (⌥⌘C) causes the hotkey window to close. Thus, in order to paste several entries I paste one into the terminal then paste the next one into another application effectively moving it to the top of the clipboard stack and repeat. It would be excellent if it was possible to do one of the following: shuffle the clipboard (make the next item down active so that ⌘V would paste it) pop the top item off the stack (pasting it and removing it the same way you can with ⌫) I've done some searching and this seems to indicate that we cannot manipulate Alfred's clipboard manager. Alfred's clipboard manager is the best one I've used (searchable and no mouse required) but I'd be open to alternative suggestions Thank, Ben
  13. 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?
  14. Contrary to many who ask for unlimited clipboard history, I prefer to keep mine trimmed down. Right now I go through the list once in a while and delete items which I won't reuse at all. However I sometimes end up deleting something useful. My request is to be able to star items in the clipboard history, so they can be skipped when doing a "clear history".
  15. It would be very cool if I could save the screenshots I take with cmd+shift+ctrl+4 that are stored in Alfred clipboard history. Currently the only way for me to do that is to paste it somewhere (like github comments) and then download the image
  16. For some reason the 'Auto paste on return' function of the Alfred clipboard stopped working for me a couple of days ago. I didn't realise how much I rely on it until it stopped working The clipboard window opens as normal when I hit the shortcut, but the selected entry isn't pasted when I hit return. I don't really know how to go about debugging this - has anyone had a similar issue? Thanks Adam
  17. Problem and Solution I'm heavy user of Evernote. During internet surfing, I collect enormous amount of links. But copy and paste process consumes too much time and keyboard labor. I just needed titled link in plain format from web browser. I used many clipboard managers such as Clipmate(for windows), Copied, Paste and so on for that reason. Finally, I met Alfred and made this workflow. Problem solved. Lazy Link replaces following process into one hotkey(Ctrl + Option + Command + v). Copy the title of web page on the web browser Paste it as plain text on your rich text editor (eg. Evernote) Copy the link of web page Select title text on the text editor and add link Please, don't waste your time. Default Hotkey Ctrl + Option + Command + v: Paste lazy link Shift + Ctrl + Option + Command + v: Paste lazy link starting with "via: " In rich text editor, it pastes plain HTML link. If you use plain text editor it pastes the link in Markdown format. Links Download GitHub Packal Lazy Link currently supports Safari and Chrome web browser. 저장저장
  18. Hi! I want to copy a string like "§ABC §DEFGH §Test" into my clipboard and want to paste it like "ABC, DEFGH, Test" at another place. Can someone help me how to solve this? thank you
  19. Funnel takes text and converts it to some other text by running it through a filter. The filter can be a shell script one-liner or a full script. Anything that takes standard input and outputs to standard out. At the moment, the following filters are implemented: - Base64 - decode - Base64 - encode - AES-256 - decrypt with passphrase 'X' - AES-256 - encrypt with passphrase 'X' - x509 - fingerprint - x509 - hash - x509 - certificate information - Change case - lowercase - Change case - uppercase - Change case - capitalize - Change case - title case - JSON - format - String - reverse - String - format US phone number - Lines - clear bullets - Lines - sorted unique lines - Lines - number lines - Lines - bulletize - Lines - top 10 unique lines - Lines - remove blanks - Lines - unique lines only - Lines - doublespace - Markdown - convert search links to normal links - Markdown - convert to HTML - URL - encode - HTML - encode - Sort IPv4 addresses The Funnel workflow is a variant of the preexisting Pipe workflow (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1187-filter-clipboard-through-your-favourite-one-liners). I wasn't happy with how the workflow presented options and I didn't want the options sorted by Alfred. I also wanted to bundle some heavier processing scripts, so I created my own version of the workflow from scratch. The workflow can operate on text on the clipboard, on a file whose filename is on the clipboard, on selected text (using a hotkey) or on a selected file (using a hotkey). No matter where the text comes from, it is piped through the selected filter. If the text came from the clipboard or a selection, it is pasted into the active application after being processed. If the text came from a file, the file contents are replaced with the processed text. So, for example, if you select a block of text and trigger the workflow with a hotkey, you can choose 'Lines - bulletize' and the selected text will be replaced with bulleted lines. If you select a JSON file in Finder (or Path Finder) and trigger the file hotkey, you can choose 'JSON - format' and the file contents will be replaced with formatted JSON. Update: As Vitor pointed out, I forgot the link :-) https://github.com/packal/repository/raw/master/com.tedwise.funnel/funnel.alfredworkflow

    Accessing clipboard history crashes Alfred

    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
  21. Saves the selected text to a file. The new text adds to the old one. Download You find an interesting quote that you would like to keep. Usually you copy the text, run the reader and paste the text. And with Alfred you can select the text and press the hockey. All. How it's done: 1. Create a Hotkey trigger. 2. As an option, select Selection in macOS. 3. Create Outputs → Write text File. 4. Connect them. 5. Prescribe the path to the text file, in which you will save everything. 6. Choose Append on the right, so that the new text does not erase the old one, but was added. 7. In the main field, insert the following: {datetime: medium} {clipboard} Automaton, when you have selected the text and clicked hotkey, the text file will be added with the selected text, but the current date and time will appear before it. You can create a diary and write to it. And you do not care which application you're writing in, even in the address bar. ## – for markdown.
  22. In the settings, it says that you can merge two adjacent clipboard items by pressing cmd and double tapping C. This does not seem to work as described, and instead only copies the selected item to the clipboard. It is possible that I am misreading the instructions, as they are somewhat confusing, but then I would request that the instructions be changed? Thanks so much
  23. Friends How do I copy the path of selected file to clipboard? Thanks amigos Migs
  24. I have my clipboard history shortcut set to Cmd+Alt+V - this makes more sense to me than Cmd+Alt+C, because it is another way to paste, not copy (hence option added to Cmd+V paste shortcut). The only downside is that this clashes with Cmd+Alt+V used to move items in Finder. But I never use Clipboard History in Finder, is there a way to selectively disable it? (perhaps this is a feature suggestion) Any other workaround?
  25. Is it possible to remove several clipboard history items at once? I would for example like to be able to occasionally, on demand, be able to remove all clipboard history text items < 3 characters long. I know I can fn-delete individual items in the list, but I'd like to be able to perhaps activate a workflow to prune the clipboard history list en masse. Any ideas? Possible?
