  1. 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
  2. Another feature I miss from ClipMenu: the ability to define custom actions. In ClipMenu I could use Javascript---and perhaps different languages, I never tried---to manipulate a snippet before posting. For example, I had actions to convert a snippet to a comma separate list, to convert case, etc. When pasting with a specific keypress or key/mouse combo I could select the action to be performed on the text before it was pasted. That would be great to have in Alfred! c
  3. 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!
  4. Friends How do I copy the path of selected file to clipboard? Thanks amigos Migs
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. Workflow for Alfred 2 to copy the paths of your current files and Documents to the clipboard in a variety of formats: * POSIX or HFS paths * '~/'-shortened POSIX paths * quoted paths * comma- or newline-separated. Works as a scriptfilter that gives you feedback how your paths would be copied: All options (except newline-separation) are available as File Actions also: More details in the README on github.

  8. Hi everyone, I couldn't find any post talking about this anywhere in the forum, please forgive me if this is not the case 🙇 I copy/paste lots of colours and I almost entirely rely on the Alfred's clipboard to store them. I LOVE the built-in hex colour preview. HOWEVER the clipboard fails to show a visual preview of the colour whenever the "#" is missing in the colour code (please see screenshots attached to show what i mean. I was wondering if there's a way to tweak this in the preferences? So that Alfred attempts to preview any bit of text containing 6 digits? I know there are many workflows to convert colour from one format to another - some of which are awesome btw - but I was hoping to tweak the clipboard settings rather than add an unnecessary step to my M.O. 😉 Thank you, Max
  9. Hi, It would be nice to have the option to edit the selected item in the clipboard before pasting. Thank you.
  10. Auto paste on return is no longer working for me. ? I tried the suggestions from https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/10481-clipboard-auto-paste-on-return-stopped-working/ but have had no luck in fixing the issue. Things I've tried: Restart Reinstall of Alfred No other clipboard apps installed Using the latest 3.7 [938] and on Mojave 10.14.1 Beta (18B57c) -- I think this was happening even before I updated to Mojave, but I can't 100% remember.
  11. I like to be able to link to my mail. Apple gives you a way to do this, but you have to open the raw message to get the messageid. I finally decided to create a workflow that would allow you to get the message id's of selected mail, format them and put them into the clipboard. The workflow works like as such. Select message or messages in Mac Mail app. Open Alfred and type mailurl. optionally type a format html or markdown (md). If no format is selected html is assumed. Paste messages into markdown or html sensitive application. It is probably worth noting that this is useful in a variety of situations. I use it to link email messages in Things, DayOne, and Calendar. It is great to be able to reference the email the todo, calendar event, or log entry that created it. You can download the binary at Copy Mail URL. The repository is located at bitucket. Fork me or file a bug report! **Updates** 2014-03-24 06:03AM: I now have a blog entry detailing how this works. With screen shots!
  12. Hi. I have a spreadsheet that I am copying multiple cells into another sheet- but I'd like it in just 1 cell. What I've been doing is using Clean Text to remove returns from the app, but if I could run a shortcut to remove returns from my clipboard it would save me the steps of pasting into Clean Text, clicking remove returns, and copying that text.
  13. 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
  14. I am trying to use Alfred as my goto clipboard manager on my Mac. Is there a way to add sound such that when I am using Alfred's clipboard functions, I hear an audible sound when I perform a copy operation and/or a paste operation? Adding this capability would make Alfred much more useful for me.
  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. 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.
  17. Hello! New Alfred user here, and I really enjoy it so far. I'm running into a little quirk and I can't find a solution for it. If I use the snippet function and then shortly after attempt to paste the last thing I copied to my clipboard, my snippet is pasted again. I read on this forum about there possibly being a set delay time for the snippet to be "wiped" from the clipboard, but I have tried waiting even several minutes, but my snippet is still pasted instead of what I last copied to my clipboard. Are there some settings I should check? Or could this be a bug? Thanks in advance for the help.
  18. When it's been a while since I've opened the clipboard history, when I hit the hotkey nothing happens. When I press it a second time, then it will show up fine and will continue to work fine for a while, but then again if I don't use it for awhile I will have to do it twice again. Is anyone else seeing this problem? I'm on mac sierra 10.13.5 (17F77)
  19. Hello, I'm trying to switch to a clipboard manager, but Alfred is giving me a hard time. Basically every time when I do my shortcut to reveal the history it moves the last active window to center and leaves it there. short gif screengrab: https://imgur.com/a/j519Gom Is there an option to disable that kind of behavior ?
  20. Hi, How do i reveal the folder full of images in the clipboard history/find it's path? Often i am looking for things in there, being able to reveal it and search through it would be great. Thanks, Alex
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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).
  24. 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 :-/
  25. 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
