  1. Hey! I've created this first workflow to try out the new possibilities of Alfreds workflow. It provides two different search methods: de - Translating a german word to english and vice versa. df - Translating a german word to french and vice versa. ds - Translating a german word to spanish and vice versa. When hitting 'Enter' the translated word is copied to the clipboard. When hitting 'Shift + Enter' the selected word translation is opened with Leo. With Version 1.2 newly introduced a somewhat "automatic" detection of the language of the entered word. Thanks, at this point, to David Ferguson, whose workflow.php I used to pass the results to Alfred. Here is the workflow: https://github.com/psistorm/alfredapp V1.1: - Added hotkeys transferring selected text (please choose your own hotkey) V 1.2: - Only one keyword per language needed now. The language of the entered word is automatically detected. - Opening Leo with the selected word when hitting 'Shift + Enter'. - Fixed problem with german umlauts. V 1.2.1: - Fixed problem with opening the URL in some cases. - Fixed problem with some words. V 1.3: - Added support for translation of german to polish and vice versa (Sebastian Kusnier) V 1.3.1: - Quick fix for changes in Leo site to make the workflow work again (Oderwat) V 1.4: - Added timeout for php request to avoid high process load when loosing internet connection. - Open Leo with the originally entered word when hitting 'Ctrl+Enter'. Added workflow to Packal. Best regards, psistorm
  2. 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
  3. 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 sometimes after two. For example, I was able to type "define ba" before it crashed but it crashed immediately typing "define a." Include any screenshots that might help us: attached Include the Alfred version & build number you are using: Version 1.2 (220) Include your OS X version: Sierra 10.12.1 Thanks in advance for looking into this!
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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 to make the setup progress as simple as possible. Unfortunately you are not allowed to distribute the offline files, which are provided by dict.cc. But some of them are also very huge, so it is unexpedient too. You can see here how to configure this workflow: https://github.com/Kavakuo/Dict.cc-Alfred-Workflow#installation You can download the workflow from the Github Releases page or from packal.org: http://www.packal.org/workflow/dictcc-alfred Here it is in action:
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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.

Licensing, thanks The code of this workflow is released under the MIT licence. This workflow is based on the Alfred-Workflow library (also MIT-licensed).
  10. 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 simply wish to bring it to the attention of the Alfred team to see if they are aware of the issue or if it's even something that's fixable. Thanks, Caleb
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. German ↔ Dutch dictionary quick translations via the Alfred Command Bar This workflow needs Node.js as a dependency. For detailed install instructions, examples and more, please refer to the workflow GitHub page: github.com/felixfischer/alfred-uitmuntend
  14. Translate between hundreds of languages with Glosbe.com. By default, the workflow is set up to translate between German and English: .ende English query — show German translations of English query. .deen German query — show English translations of German query. ENTER — copy selected translation to the clipboard. CMD+ENTER — open translation in browser. glosbehelp — open the included help file in your browser. glosbelang [query] — view and search supported languages. To use other language pairs, you will have to edit the workflow, either changing the included English <-> German Script Filters or adding your own using them as a template. For more information and to download the workflow, see the Packal page or grab it from GitHub.
  15. 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.

  17. Hello: I would like to incorporate Alfred built in Dictionary commands in to my own workflow. Basically, I want to extend built in functionality by adding my custom actions after, let's say, spell check command is done. How can I do it ? Thanks, Oleg
  18. 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.
  19. I wonder if anybody could and would make a workflow for inline search with openthesaurus.de. The Site has an API, but I really don't know, if it is possible to use it for an Alfred workflow. It would be great if somebody could help!
  20. 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.
  21. Hello, forum I started using Alfred 43 minutes ago, ending my long standing command+space relationship with Spotlight. I'm running Mavericks GM. I just noticed that when using the Dictionary define function, if the dictionary is already open on another space, Alfred doesn't shift to that space. It doesn't bring the dictionary in focus on the same space either. Not a big issue, but just wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing anything. Thanks for the wonderful application. It took me less than 10 minutes to fall in love. Regards Raptor UPDATE: I wanted to add that the Dictionary app does get selected but no window comes up from another Space.
  22. It'd be cool to have the complete definitions of words viewable, and in larger text… maybe by selecting the desired result first so the selection doesn't get cluttered. That way looking up words would be more self-contained and you wouldn't have to launch the dictionary app to get the whole text.
  23. Well, it's no such important, just a detail. If you open Alfred Preferences and click on 'Dictionary' section, the content is not showed although dictionary section is selected. But then, if you select other sections and comes back to dictionary, it shows perfectly. anyone has this problem too?
  24. Hi, Just checking out some Applescript and noticed that Alfred appears to have installed its dictionary many times. Guess this isn't intended?
