  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.)
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. When use snippet and expand my text, then my clipboard is override by snippet text. Is is expected? or could it be turned off.
  7. Hi, I'm curious as to what this feature enables "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 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!
  8. Hi guys, I just want to share with you a workflow that simply converts a MultiMarkdown text in HTML. DOWNLOAD Once installed you just have to copy the MultiMarkdown text to your clipboard, summon alfred, type mmd and hit return: the HTML will be instantly copied to your clipboard. You can read more here. ATTENTION: It requires MultiMarkdown in order to work. Only OS X is supported.
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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).
  13. Snippet entry followed immediately by a paste command, seems to result in pasting the contents of the snippet, rather than the top item of my clipboard. Example below. Clipboard is also managed by Alfred. If I wait a full second or two before pasting, my clipboard contents are pasted correctly, and confirm that my clipboard list does not include the snippet text. I do not see a setting to reduce this delay, so I suspect this is a bug. * what were you doing when the issue happened Entered keyword for snippet, immediately followed by Cmd+V for pasting my clipboard contents. I realize that I can use "{clipboard}" for this, but to keep my snippets more flexible, I prefer paste separate from the snippet action. * Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action Confirmed this issue exists in several applications. (Primarily seen in iTerm2) * Include any screenshots that might help us Strictly a text/snippet issue, so example below- $ ps -ef | grep ps -ef grep Expected: $ ps -ef | grep 12345 where "12345" is the current contents of my clipboard. * Include the Alfred version & build number you are using v3.0.3 [694] * Include your OS X version 10.11.5
  14. Hi All, I have looked on the web for the answer to this and have not found what I am looking for. My problem is this: When I start a workflow execution that requires and argument, I want to search my clipboard history for that argument. Since I have already called up alfred with 'Command'+'space' and typed my workflow in, when I go to input the argument needed I want to again enter 'Command'+'alt'+'C' to search my history for the argument. Once I do this, alfred's state change to the clipboard history and I can't return to where I was before with the start of the workflow. Of course the workaround is to make sure the argument I need is already the first item in my clipboard history so I can easily just paste it in without searching, but it would be nice if I could search. It decrease my error rate during clutch situations for sure. Let me know if I am not clear in my question. Thanks! Dave
  15. My feature suggestion is that clipboard history should support rich text and there should also be CMD+OPT+V (or some other user-configurable Hotkey) that strips any formatting and pastes plaintext. The lack of this feature is the main reason I don't use Alfred as a clipboard manager. I don't need rich text a whole lot, but when I do, Alfred isn't up to the job. (For anyone that's interested, I use Keyboard Maestro to implement Paste as Plaintext.)
  16. Alfred version 3.1 [718] Mac Os X 10.11.6 Hi i love alfred but i think there are 2 problems with clipboard: if another app copy a string on a clipboard i can't see the string on clipboard history. Example: open 1password and search a password click on copy button and i can't see the password on clipboard history when i copy a formatted text on clipboard, when i try to repaste the text loose the formatting. Example go to the editor content, copy something else, delete the editor content and try to paste the first content on the editor.... the paste lose all formatting. Before to switch to alfred i used Clipboard History and this app don't have these issues. Please fix.
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. I'm not sure if this would be a workflow or a custom web search. But here's what I'm trying to do. I want to copy multiple urls, and then combine them all into a single query. Use case: I copy 4 different urls and then search for them on a site called,, So I'd type 'shared count 3' for example, and it would merge clipboard urls 1, 2 and 3 in,, How might one accomplish this? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hello, I was just wondering if it was possible to remove the View snippets for 'Collection', or move them to the end of the list of results when viewing from the clipboard history/snippets. Basically, I was hoping to have the snippets listed as they were from Alfred 2 when going from the Clipboard History > All Snippets. I am including a screenshot that I hope makes my question easier to understand.
  21. Is there a way to selectively remove items from the clipboard history? Normally, I want to have items attached to the clipboard to remain. But, if I've copied and pasted a password, that's something that I would only want to remain for a limited amount of time (like maybe a day or less).
  22. I know people have requested image support in the clipboard history feature in Alfred. That would be great, but I would really like to see support for maintaining text formatting (rich text) in the snippets and clipboard history. As of now all text is converted into plain text in the history and snippets. It would great if formatting were not lost.
  23. Currently I'm using ClipMenu for clipboard history. Alfred's just feels too insufficient. I would like to be able to see a longer preview of the copied text. I don't want to see the whole chunk per se, so the right pane is superfluous. But I would like to be able to dedicate the full size of the viewer to just the preview like we see in the left pane. If I could do that, I could eliminate ClipMenu altogether.
  24. I find it awkward to have to distinguish between pulling up the main alfred window to type "clear" to clear my clipboard history, and using a separate command to view it. It'd be much easier to pull up my clipboard, and be able to type in 'clear' or something so that i can see the history, scan it, then clear it.
  25. Hi Apologies if this is something really stupid that I have misinterpreted. When I try to copy a composite bit of text and an image to the Alfed 3 Clipboard, the text copies fine, but instead of the image, the filename is being copied. How do I copy the text and the image properly together? Thanks!
