  1. I use Alfred everyday on my mac, most time of the time, I use it to define words. The content displayed is so small that it can't give the full meaning: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aPxo7l3DA-gzrrHqo07IqzjZnGipucN7/view?usp=sharing Here's compared to Spotlight: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GhZYawTc-xLf2oHApWkl7uzIvzKs0A_P/view?usp=sharing Is there a way to enlarge the content displayed by Alfred?
  2. Hi, after typing "define" keyword into search bar it crashes. I've noticed I can type up to letters and then it crashes hard and have to launch the app again. Anyone else experienced this? I was just testing the features when I can across this as I am a brand new user. A
  3. Hi everyone, I've had this problem with the "define" function for a while, which is, every time I try to define a word or especially a phrase, typing becomes sluggish. I guess it's because Alfred is processing a lot of words in the dictionary, but actually I've never had such problems when I do any other kinds of searches with Alfred, even if there's also a lot of stuff to process. Can anybody help? Thanks a lot! OS X version: El Capitan 10.11.6 Alfred version: 3.2, build 759
  4. I'm on mac OS 10.12.1 and using Alfred version version 1.2 (220) downloaded through the mac app store. I'm running into an issue when trying to either check the spelling or definition of a word. When bringing up alfred, typing "spell" or "define" and then starting to type the word I want to check alfred crashes within the first two or three letters of the word. animated gif of alfred crashing I am definitely able to replicate the issue. I have tried changing the langue setting from English to Default, tried telling it to include only words from the mac os dictionary, etc and nothing has stopped the crashing. Thanks and let me know if there's any other information that would be helpful. Chris
  5. I have been using Alfred since version 1. I remember being able to define words when using the keyword "define" and the definition would should up within Alfred. However, when I try this it does not define the word. The only way to get a definition is to be kicked out to the Dictionary.app. This is possible to do. I saw this discussed on The Sweet Setup (under the Dictionary section): http://thesweetsetup.com/apps/our-favorite-os-x-launcher/ I am not sure if this is a bug or I changed a certain setting turning off what I want to do. Please assist. Thanks.
  6. OSX 10.9.1 Alfred 2.1.1(227) If Dictionary.app is left on a tab other than Dictionary, when activating Define from Alfred, the dictionary is opened to the tab it was last viewing, not the Dictionary tab. The behavior drives me mad, as I won't recognize i'm on Thesaurus and quickly become perplexed as to why a word I know should be in the dictionary isn't showing up due to it having no notable synonyms.
  7. I'm running the GM of Mavericks and notice that Define (I use the letter D to activate it) no longer seems to connect to Dictionary and display the definition as it did in Mountain Lion. Is this a change in Mavericks and will Alfred compensate for it in a future release? For the record, I notice that Spotlight has the same behavior, which is why I assume this behavior is happening in Alfred.
