  1. Hi everyone, I'm trying to solve this problem that I frequently face. When I disconnect my Mac from the monitor (connected via USB-C), and then reconnect it when I'm back at my desk, sometimes it does not connect. The Mac does detect the USB-C cable, but I think the process needs a refresh, so I have to unplug and re-plug the cable to make it work. Is there a workflow or maybe a command that I can use to force it to connect by either restart the display process or something else?
  2. Hey, I saw a workflow request on /r/Alfred that interested me as well, and saw that no one made it yet, so I quickly wrapped up one with a little bit of Google-ing. Basically, it's a really basic workflow that moves your current window between monitor(s) with the tap of a hotkey or by entering "jump" into Alfred (both are configurable of course). I don't think I'll be maintaining this workflow, as there really is not much to maintain, it's a very simple AppleScript behind, but feel free to comment here and I'll check it every once in a while to see if anything is needed.

  3. Alfred 2 Workflow to change the resolution for 13" MacBook Pro Laptops Shamelessly copied and adopted for 13" MacBook Pro Retina displays (running under OS X Mavericks). Slightly extended to send notifications for each new resolution. Keyboard Shortcut changed. Workflow screenshot: https://github.com/davosian/alfred-change-resolution/blob/master/Screenshot.png Usage: 'res r' or ⌘⌥^R for 1280*800 (think 'r' as in 'Retina') 'res h' or ⌘⌥^H for 1440*900 (think 'h' as in 'hi-res display', like the old 1680*1050 MBP Hi-Res display) 'res f' or ⌘⌥^F for 1680*1050 (think 'f' as in 'full-hd') GitHub (Source): https://github.com/davosian/alfred-change-resolution Direct Download: https://github.com/davosian/alfred-change-resolution/blob/master/Change%20Resolution.alfredworkflow?raw=true
  4. Update: rewrote the entire thing as a bash script. It's much faster now. All the links are the same. Grab it if you want. Let me know if there are any bugs. (I couldn't find any). Caffeinate Control v2 v3 I just pushed a major update to my old Caffeinate workflow, and I figured I'd just start a new thread. It is a complete overhaul. Find version 2 3 on Packal.org: packal page. Option Configuration You can configure how you want Caffeinate to work for you. Do you want to keep the system awake? Just the display? Everything? Just type "caff configure" (or "caff c"), and you can set the options easily. If you want to change how it works later, then just run the config again. Change however frequent you want! Defaults We default to "i" or just to keep the system from idling (which lets you display turn off). Just run the config and choose more options to as you please. Multiple options are available by pressing cmd while clicking. Commands Just type "caff" to get started. It will tell you the status and give you the most relevant option first. Example Arguments "caff e" enables caffeinate indefinitely "caff d" disables caffeinate "caff 15 2" enables caffeinate for 15 hours and 2 minutes "caff 23" enables caffeinate for 23 minutes "caff 2h" enables caffeinate for 2 hours "caff configure" opens the configuration dialog "caff help" opens the help dialog. Here are some screenshots: Shows the status left in hours / minutes, depending on how much time is left. You can also see the configure and help entries in the bottom. I need to get around to uninstalling caffeine because I don't use it anymore. Configure the behavior of how you want it to sleep. Just select the options and press "Set Options". If you input one number, it defaults to minutes. If you put in two numbers, it interprets as hours and minutes. You can specify with arguments too. Feel free to type out the whole words "hours" or "minutes" or whatever part of them you want to. Here's the help, explaining it a tiny bit more. Click on "More Info..." to be taken to the caffeinate man page. If you get really excited about typing a lot of minutes, then we'll still let you know how many hours that is... (edited to add more pretty screenshots.)
  5. My first workflow. For Retina MacBook Pro users only a quick way to switch between Best for Retina and the maximum More Space resolution https://github.com/interdev/AlfredWorkflows/blob/dfa39bf2c2a2237d284df3d127340007656f73f5/ToggleRetinaResolution/ToggleRetinaResolution.alfredworkflow?raw=true Hope you find it useful.
  6. I would like to have the option to decide how big the alfred search panel should be; ideally I could set two sizes and toggle between them pressing a key. This would allow me to see more than 9 search results when I want to. Personally I would not mind Alfred's display taking up the whole screen: as I am searching inside Alfred, I do not need to look at anything else.
  7. Hi guys, This workflow lets you adjust your display's brightness with Alfred. GitHub: https://github.com/fniephaus/alfred-brightness Download-Link: https://github.com/fniephaus/alfred-brightness/releases/download/v1.0/Display-Brightness.alfredworkflow
  8. Whenever I invoke Alfred it is now on my my laptop's monitor.. and never on my external display. I noticed this since running the last update. It renders the clipboard manager useless, because when it opens on a different monitor, if I select a clip it doesn't go to the program I was on before I invoked it (that may be a separate problem). About to submit a bug report, but wanted to check if anyone else has had this same issue or got a workaround for it.
  9. Hi all, I created a workflow to put my computer's display to sleep. It requires Maverick (10.9) or higher, since they just added a command line utility for this. It's activated with the keyword: dsleep. Available here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m0lnomnt4mkkmyd/display-sleep.alfredworkflow
  10. When using Alfred to launch application, those apps does not always have their main window opened in the display on which Alfred was shown. This is confusing, you're using alfred in one display, and its action occurs in another display. It would be better if all visual feedback occured in the same display. Since mavericks, all screens have a main menu bar, and can be the primary display depending on current active window. One of the consequences of this behavior is that applications have their main window opened in current primary screen. Currently Alfred is always shown on the same display, whatever the current primary screen is. The problem is that you generally expect to have Alfred's actions being done in the same display. Worse, if you wanted an application to open in the same display than Alfred, you can easily forget to check what is the current primary display, and then discover that the application has been opened in the wrond display once it's too late. A good workflow IMO would be to always show Alfred's window on current primary screen, and give the users the oportunity to change the primary screen and let him hide it, changing active window, and re-open it before doing any search.
  11. Download https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4265900/Alfred/Sleep%20Display.alfredworkflow This workflow puts only the display to sleep, using the Keyword sleepdisplay. The system remains running until computer sleep is triggered, as specified in the Mac Energy Saver preference pane. Handy for quickly and easily locking your computer, if your job requires that sort of thing. Unfortunately, there is no way to target the Eject key via AppleScript (that I know of, anyways), so the extension requires the use of the SleepDisplay.app (the extension looks for it in the ~/Applications/Utilities directory). As Alfred leans the Keyword, the Extension becomes easier to trigger. For me, all I have to do is type, "sl" to trigger, much more convenient than the ⌃+⇧+⏏ keyboard shortcut claw, I think!

  12. Thanks to Bryan Wu I made this display rotation workflow with Applescript: Download It works on my machine but you have to adapt 3 lines: click pop up button 1 might need to change to 2 or 3 -- More Info here And change following into your system language: click radio button "Monitor" might need to change to "Display" or your language click button "Confirm" also into your language Maybe helpful for all where Mac mini and monitor don't support auto rotation.
  13. Now it's working! See http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1295-display-rotation-workflow/?p=6319
  14. Thanks to code from the very helpful David Ferguson, this workflow displays current DNS addresses in Notification Center. Probably not all that useful to most people, but I use Unblock-US.com to view region-specific web content, so this makes it easy for me to check that these settings haven't reverted. Download available here.
  15. Wondering if it's possible to build a workflow to display the current DNS settings, either as feedback into Alfred or a Notification Center output. I'm not looking to change the DNS (I can do that manually, if I have to). But I use Unblock-US.com to view region-specific content, and I want to be able to quickly check that the DNS settings haven't reverted back. Thoughts?
