  2. Hey guys, I've created my very first workflow based on the NodeJS framework provided by @tungdang (http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/5488-alfred-workflow-nodejs/). It's a very simple german-english dictionary based on linguee.de. It features autocompletion, auto detection of the input language (german or english) and phrases. Installed NodeJS is a precondition Download link, description and source can be found here: https://github.com/zusatzstoff/linguee-alfred-workflow Feedback for improvement is appreciated
  3. Hello, I use the dictionary feature a lot, and I think it would be great to have the option to view the full definition right in Alfred, instead of a single line which rarely ever provides useful insights. This makes me open the Dictionary app every time, which is very inefficient. This is the default Spotlight behavior (phrases using the word and etymology are also included, and it's really useful) and it works well. Lacona does this too. Thanks!
  4. I created a workflow to easily search and display for Japanese-English translations from Jisho.org. To download, visit https://github.com/janclarin/jisho-alfred-workflow and press the download button. Please let me know what you think! Packal link.

  7. I coded a little workflow for translation that is powered by dict.cc. I saw this workflow over here http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/8286-dictcc-translate-english-to-german/ and there was some demand for another one that works offline. So here it is: Features: Offline translation with dictionaries powered by dict.cc Highly flexible, integrate as many language packs as you want Easy to setup A little bit hidden features: Copy the translated word to the clipboard by actioning it Copy the word in the origin language to the clipboard by actioning it with cmd as modifier I tried
  8. Dear all, I am a current student studying English literature and therefore using the native dictionary.app in a Mac is not enough. So I downloaded GoldenDict with OED equipped. I was trying to build a workflow which I hope will function exactly like the 'define {query}' feature in Alfred. Basically, I want to have the GoldenDict window come to front and give me the definition after typing the keyword 'gold' and hit [space] and then type my {query} in Alfred. I am learning to to build a workflow from scratch for my own so I don't have to come to bother you guys every tim
  9. I'd like to integrate Alfred with a 3rd-party dictionary app. Is there any possible way that I can use the result of Alfred's built-in dictionary suggestion feature? I didn't see how Alfred implemented this since they do not expose built-in features. Or any other's work I can use? I don't want to do it from scratch by figure out how to deal with Apple's Dictionary Services.

  12. I just updated to the latest version of Alfred and now the dictionary link appears to be broken. Whether I use d (define) or s (spell) the word is never found. This includes words like "and", "there", etc. Is this function broken in v3.5.1?

  14. 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
  15. Overall very satisfied Alfred user here. I just got a 2015 Macbook Pro and have encountered a slightly annoying bug on Alfred. What you were doing when the issue happened: Unable to use the "Spelling" Accessory. When type into Alfred, "define" or "spell" the app crashes when I type the second or third letter of the query. Other functions (calculator, custom searches) work fine Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action: Happens consistently every time. One variation, though: sometimes the app crashes after typing one letter and sometim
  16. In the current Alfred, dictionary define was displayed as subtext. However, it is the definition we are looking for and it is not so wise to open a new dictionary window to get the definition. So can the definition be displayed in a different way? Maybe like Spotlight, it is good. Or have some hotkeys to activate Preview?
  17. Hi I'm new to Alfred and the Powerpack (used the basic function for years) I have been using textedit forever and now want to revolt to the subscription scheme (before I HAVE to) I'm doing fine with snippets replacing all my text edit snippets but I can't see a simple way to do autocorrect for spelling mistakes. Is there some way to import a large list of common errors similar to what many of the typeit4me apps do? Thanks Tom
  18. Hi there, I am wondering if there is any way that I can put the 'define' function always on the top of the list of results. For instance, I am now using 'df' as the keyword to activate the 'define' function. Since installing PDF Expert, inputting 'df' in Alfred always results in PDF Expert topping the list of results (see image ). I am looking of a way to fix this without completely hiding PDF Expert from Alfred, and without changing the keyword to trigger 'define'. Thank you for your input!
  19. Alfred Duden.de Search Workflow Search the definitive German dictionary at Duden.de with auto-suggest. Download and installation Download the Workflow from the GitHub releases page or Packal.

  20. Hi, I've noticed recently that the Only show words with OS X Dictionary definition preference seems to behave counterintuitively. I am running Alfred 2.7.1 on OS X Yosemite (10.10.3). When the option is enabled (checked), I always see a result for words that don't exist in the Dictionary: When the option is disabled (unchecked), I see what I would expect to see if the option were enabled (that is, Alfred only shows Dictionary words that actually exist): Of course, the temporary workaround for me is obvious, so I'm not asking for a solution to this issue. Rather, I sim
  21. 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.
  22. So I have a Workflow on an iOS app (Drafts 4) that will define a word for me in Terminology iOS app then automatically add that to an Evernote notebook named "Lexicon". I am trying to do this on OS X with Alfred but cannot figure out a way to do so. Any ideas? Thanks!

  24. I've signalised that before in another subforum, but since few months have passed I'm telling it again. It would be nice to have dictionary queries redirected to a database; for example Anki. In order to develop such a plugin an open dictionary workflow would be extremely helpful.
