  1. Hello! Snippets: Several times a day I experience this behavior: working on some text I type shortcut for Alfred snippet and instead of snippet text I get current clipboard contents. Clipboard: When I want to paste something from history, I open history, select needed clip, press enter - and nothing happens. And then if I press cmd+V again only then paste occurs. Also happens quite often. Please advise. Thanks! Grigory
  2. 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! Thanks! Vermeer
  3. I'm a developer and the copy merge feature comes in very handy. Although, often I need to paste it into my code editor and do some additional editing - like add commas between each or && or whatever. It would be nice to (ideally, through the alfred interface) quickly change the setting of what separates each appended item—even set/add custom character(s).
  4. I can consistently reproduce an error when I expand a snippet then immediately execute an AppleScript workflow that manipulates the clipboard: I regularly compose business cards having all the typical information. To help expedite some repetition and reduce errors, I created a snippet and workflow to format email addresses. My defined snippet of ";e" expands to "e-mail " and my workflow is AppleScript to concatenate the first letter of the first name, entire last name, and email domain. 1. I type a person's name (e.g. "John Doe") 2. I select the name and copy it to the clipboard 3. I type the rest of the person's information 4. To enter the person's email address, I expand my snippet to get "e-mail " then execute my workflow (with a key-combo) to process the text-only clipboard and paste the result (e.g. "jdoe@abcdefg.com"). The combination yields the complete result of "e-mail jdoe@abcdefg.com" This process has worked flawlessly until the most recent update (maybe prior update?). I am currently using v3.3 [801]. My snippets have always expanded each time as expected. If I copy the name to the clipboard and process it with my workflow, the expected result is pasted. If I expand my snippet first, then process the clipboard, nothing is pasted. The debug for the workflow shows: [ERROR: action.script] 363:376: execution error: Can’t make some data into the expected type. (-1700) I can reproduce this behavior without fail. My workflow AppleScript: set convertedText to words of makeLowerCase(the clipboard) set the clipboard to text 1 thru 1 of first item of convertedText & second item of convertedText & "@abcdefg.com" tell application "System Events" keystroke "v" using {command down} end tell on makeLowerCase(theString) set UC to "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" set LC to "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" set C to characters of theString repeat with ch in C if ch is in UC then set contents of ch to item (offset of ch in UC) of LC end repeat return C as string end makeLowerCase
  5. Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to get Alfred to either a) ignore clipboard items from the pass password manager or b ) respect that they should be temporary. Thanks!
  6. I use Alfred as my main clipboard history tool, and it's very handy for re-pasting something I recently copied, and then copied over. However, it's a clunky process to open the clipboard history -- is there any way to make it accessible from within the Alfred main window, so I can select clippings via a Cmd+number combo?
  7. 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
  8. The integrated clipboard management feature is pretty good. However, I often need to paste plain text (without any format) from the clipboard, but the text from Alfred Clipboard is formatted. So if there is a hotkey that can paste text without any format, it'll be more awesome.
  9. I can't get alfred snippets to work properly with punto switcher. Prerequisites: Alfred is on in accessibility Punto Switcher is on accessibility The bug: 1. Type word in english 2. Press Punto switcher button to convert last word to other language layout 3. type any alfred snippet shortcode Expected result: A text snippet is placed Actual result: My last item from clipboard history is placed Gif of the bug is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ey0ijpa67gqza1j/snippet bug.gif?dl=0 Please help! I need alfred snippets and punto switcher to work together!
  10. 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
  11. I mostly bought Alfred for text replacement and clipboard features. I saw something in a competing clipboard product that'd be pretty helpful, and I can't seem to find a way to pull it off with workflows as-is. The feature lets you create a script that will be applied to the text in the clipboard, with a preview window and some other niceties. For me, the value is I use a bewildering number of different slightly-incompatible Markdown-like syntaxes all day, and it'd be nice to work in my editor in one universal format and paste via scripts that convert to the various idiosyncratic ones. Their example is "make an HTML list from items" but I'm seeing more value in things like "Let me convert some CSV rows to the three dumb Markdown table formats used across the systems I need." It'd save me a lot of dang effort, and could be as simple as giving me a workflow that lets me use a clipboard snippet as input. I think I could pull that off right now via AppleScript, but it's unwieldy enough I'd rather just buy the other product. Same time, I've already paid for Alfred, so I'd rather not switch.
  12. Hi guys I like the Clipboard History feature of Alfred 2, it very useful and helps me a lot. But font size a little bit small for me. I think would be very useful to add options to customise Clipboard History / Snippets font size and probably font family etc. Or add such option into themes engine. Many thanks in advance.
  13. Hey there, I request the feature to have Alfred trigger on clipboard update, so that I can parse and update my clipboard contents according to my needs. Use Case: I copy a facebook link like this: https://www.facebook.com/TheBestCatPage/photos/a.994717007212298.1073741828.994713583879307/1593316110685715/?type=3&theater My workflow automatically strips the ?/type=3&theater from the link and update the clipboard contents. Use Case 2: I copy a link that exceeds a certain character limit. My workflow grabs the clipboard content, runs them through a link shortener of my choice, and updates the clipboard contents with my new, shortened link. I hope this can be done, it'd be awesome. While LinkClean is very helpful, it requires that I have to run it - I'd like to get rid of that step!
  14. Hey there, I want a workflow that automatically cleans up links in my clipboard (for example, strip the "type=3&theater" from facebook links). For that, I would like to have my Alfred workflow to trigger whenever I update my clipboard, so that I can follow the logic after. How do I achieve that? Thank you already
  15. 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
  16. I have a snippet that generates a test email for me to use. It has some dynamic text inside that includes the current date and time using placeholders ex. myrandomemail{date:KKmmssaYMMMd}@testemail.com Is it possible that as soon as I use this one snippet, it copies the output to my clipboard manager?
  17. Hi, I've read several thread regarding this but I think I am still clueless as to how it works. What I am looking for: a workflow which will append any Clipboard inputs to my clipboard.txt document. What is the best way to do it? Any help would be appreciated.
  18. Hey Everyone I'm trying to figure out if Alfred has a specific functionality. Like many of you, I do a crazy amount of email, and I'm constantly searching for something in a browser, copying the URL, and then pasting in an email client. My dream is something like MixMax (chrome + gmail plugin that allows '/' search), or the command+k shortcut in google docs (see image below), which works in any applications. My question - is there any way using Alfred, to enter a google search term, see the top 10 results, choose one, and then paste that URL, without ever leaving Alfred (and never opening a browser)? Thanks for any help! (PS - I understand that the example below is creating a hyperlink. It's just for illustration. I'm interested in pasting the actual URL in any context.)
  19. 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
  20. I am having a consistent issue with the keyboard shortcut on macOS Sierra. I have bound the Clipboard History Shortcut to SHIFT + APPLE + V (I have used this with another app for years - it is basically hardwired now) However, after a reboot the shortcut does not work. The only way I have found to get it to work is to go to ADVANCED > SET SYNC FOLDER Then change the Sync folder It is saved in Google Drive synced using inSync (not Dropbox - I saw a thread saying this could be an issue) What i have been doing is changing it to a tmp folder, then changing it back. This drives me a little nuts - any help much appreciated
  21. When use snippet and expand my text, then my clipboard is override by snippet text. Is is expected? or could it be turned off.
  22. Hi, I'm curious as to what this feature enables http://imgur.com/a/ooP76 "Keep File Lists" You can find it in "Alfred Preferences">"Features">"Clipboard" I clicked the little question-mark and it brought me to the documentation at https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/clipboard/ but there's no mention of the feature. I see: >With Alfred's Clipboard History, you don't need to worry about text, images and file links you've copied but forgot to paste earlier; It's all there in your searchable history. but no other explanation. Thanks!
  23. So I am trying to search the clipboard history of alfred by date. I remember copying something on a certain day and can pull that up but can't pull up things I copied around that date and time. Any help? I tried opening the database with bbedit and was pretty jumbled. If this is possible and answered please forgive the duplicate but if not, any help would be much appreciated. Cheers!
  24. Hey folks, as a software developer I often use die clipboard history and I know exactly the position of the clipboard history element, which I need. Is it possible (e.g. via alfred workflow) to paste directly the 2nd,3rd,nth clipboard item in the alfred clipboard history? that would be awesome, cheers Josef
  25. Hi Guys I work with a software that I need always copy from it and past somewhere else. I have a problem with it since it has a lot of unwanted spaces. For example: "My text has a lot of spaces" I would like some workflow that removes all spaces from text except for single spaces between words. In my example would be like that: "My text has a lot of spaces" Basically equal to the function TRIM on Microsoft Excel, I don't have experience with code, so I really appreciate some help.
