  1. I use the clipboard and snippets a lot for work, and we often test our websites in different Operating Systems and Browsers by means of VirtualBox. I use automatically expanding snippets to save time, but I noticed the snippets and the clipboard do not work inside of VirtualBox. I've used a program called aText (https://www.trankynam.com/atext/), which is able to paste into VirtualBox, so I believe it's possible.
  2. clipboard access

    i would like to access the clipboard content from the terminal command so that i can pass it as an argument. but when i tried to access the same it is literally printing the {clipboard:1}. Please help me on this regards, cd "{query}" echo {clipboard:1} git difftool --dir-diff "{clipboard:1}".."{clipboard:2}" output in the terminal {clipboard:1}
  3. 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.

  4. Change clipboard case

    Hey all, just published a little workflow so that I can change the case of the text in the clipboard quickly. The code is here: https://github.com/derBingle/alfred-change-case. It requires nodejs, so if you have it already, you can install via npm install -g alfred-change-case Screenshot: : Would love any feedback/suggestions!
  5. A clipboard peek window

    It looks like a similar FR was suggested a few years ago, but I didn't see any responses: To re-iterate, I'd find it useful to have a window of the clipboard that's always visible. It'd save me a context switch to view the window (even with a hotkey).
  6. A clipboard peek window

    I am finding myself needing to have a small, chrome-less window on top of everything that just shows the current clipboard contents. It should update as the clipboard is updated. Since Alfred already monitors the clipboard, this would not be hard to implement. Have it's look similar to the current theme. Clicking and dragging anywhere on the window will drag it around. Have a hotkey that is user settable to display/not display the window. Please!
  7. Hi! Right now, if I copied something to the clipboard and I want it not to expire, I have to go into the snippets preferences, add a new snippet etc. I'd like Alfred to have a predefined "Pinned" snippets list and to be able to add items to it by using a keyword/shortcut on a selected item in the clipboard history. Of course these items would have no "keyword".
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I would like an option for Alfred to display a confirm prompt after the "Clear Clipboard History" commands, just as it does for several System commands (e.g., restart). I have accidentally cleared my clipboard history in Alfred several times, to my dismay. This confirmation prompt should be optional, just as the system confirmation prompts configured in Preferences → Features → System. Thank you.
  11. sprunge workflow

    This is my first attempt at a workflow, and frankly I'm a bit embarrassed by it. I just wanted something simple that takes the contents of the clipboard and uploads it to sprunge (pastebin type website). It will take the resulting URL and send it back to your clipboard for easy sharing. I would love some feedback on how to improve it as I have no idea what I'm doing! In addition to sending the URL to your clipboard it would be neat to have it give some kind of notification center feedback or large print feedback, but I wasn't sure how to best implement that. https://github.com/mlindgren80/alfredsprunge Thanks for looking!
  12. This workflow simply: 1. save clipboard to a temporary file 2. open that temp file with MacVim 3. Waiting for you to finish editing (by default, you have 30s to edit) 4. Send edited content to clipboard GitHub repo, download from GitHub
  13. Does anyone know how would I go about passing the contents of the clipboard created in an Alfred workflow to another app, such as Keyboard Maestro? The last step of my Alfred workflow calls my Keyboard Maestro macro (via AppleScript), but nothing happens. I'm either not passing the clipboard correctly, or I'm not calling Keyboard Maestro correctly. (Basically, what I'm trying to do is search for a contact via Alfred, and then pass the email address of the contact over to a Keyboard Maestro workflow to apply some regex to it to convert it to a URL, which is then opened). I've uploaded a screenshot of my workflow, along with the details of the 2nd and 4th steps. (Please ignore the Placeholder title, subtext, etc - I pilfered that from another workflow and haven't changed it yet). I admittedly am a complete novice when it comes to Alfred workflows, so my work is probably painfully bad.
  14. 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
  15. For some reason this stopped working for me. I can pinpoint when exactly but some updated ago. I specifically removed 1password from the ignore apps of Advanced tab of the Clipboard's preference but now nothing that I copy from 1Password is shown in the history regardless of this setting. I tried resetting the setting and removing 1Password again. I even tried removing every single app there and still 1Password entries are not shown on the clipboard. I use this very heavily. Any ideas? OSX macOS Sierra 10.12.5 (16F73 Alfred v3.4 [850]
  16. macOS Sierra 10.12.5 Alfred v3.4 [850] LibreOffice Alfreds clipboard history seems to interfere with LibreOffice. When clipboard history is enabled pasted text to LibreOffice will always be the last thing copied in LibreOffice. When Alfred is not running everything works fine. Disabling Clipboard history also seems to solve this. I can't reliably reproduce this. It always happens when I work with LibreOffice, but I can't pinpoint the exact event, that triggers this bug. One interesting observation: This also affects TextExpander snippets. Inserting any snippet will paste the same text that was copied from inside LibreOffice before.
  17. Is there any way to open the clipboard.alfdb in any terminal program so that I can remove sensitive data and replace it with something like "PASSWORDREMOVED" without corrupting the data file? Is it in any certain data format? Like if it was SQLite I could make the changes through there I know you can do function-backspace to remove entries from the clipboard, however, i just want to remove the sensitive data not the whole line from the clipboard. Thank you, Jared https://jared.nyc https://devopschat.co
  18. 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.
  19. I'm using version 3.3.2 and when pressing cmd+c once, an estimated 75% of the time it still does a clipboard merge, which leads to multiple successive appended strings, rather than copying something new to the clipboard. Anyone else experience this?
  20. I would appreciate if Alfred supported a command to erase the last hour of clipboard history, just as the commands to "clear history for the past 5 or 15 minutes". Or, allow users to manually define the `clear` clipboard command intervals in preferences. Several times, I have forgotten to erase sensitive data from my Alfred clipboard history within 15 minutes and am forced to delete the entire clipboard history. This addition would be helpful. Thank you.
  21. 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
  22. How can you preview links in clipboard history? I copy a lot of bitly links into my clipboard and re-use them, the challenge is when I'm trying to sort through the Clipboard history I can't tell the content of them. Is this possible? How could it be done?
  23. Hello, I am taking a lot of screenshots and I prefer using the standard mac's screenshot grabber tool, it works great, but there are a few key points that can be automated for a better life =) I tried doing this workflow by myself but it didn't really work out. Upload the image from clipboard to imgur and get .png link copied to clipboard Trigger Alfred Write the keyword ("upload" for example) The first option you have is "Upload the image from clipboard to Imgur.com" The link (preferably the direct link to .png image) is copied to clipboard. Optionally you can have a list of images from clipboard history, if you took a few screenshots to clipboard and want to upload them too Edit image from clipboard in "Preview" app Trigger Alfred Write the keyword ("edit" for example) The first option you have is "Edit the image from clipboard in 'Preview'" The "Preview" app is opened Keyboard Shortcut Trigger "CMD+N" (this open the image from clipboard) Keyboard Shortcut Trigger "CMD+SHIFT+A" (this turns on Markup Toolbar) What do you think of this idea? I searched everywhere I could to find something similar but didn't find anything.
  24. 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?
  25. 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
