  1. I would love to be able to directly access all of Alfred's default file actions in my workflows. @Andrew recently added some awesome new actions for the buffer - and, Alfred already included some of the other default file actions, like Reveal and Browse - but I'd love to be able to access other default file actions, too - such as Open With, Recent Documents, etc. At the moment, if you want to access these without extra steps, you have to use GUI-based approaches that type the file action's name into the File Action panel, which are always imminently fragile and problematic.
  2. Version: Alfred 4.1 [1167] I would like to be able to toggle file visibility from Alfred's file explorer, or from the "File Search" tab in Alfred-Preferences. As far as I can tell, Alfred cannot see invisible files at all*. Is this a safety precaution or a feature I somehow missed? Even in Finder, it's just a matter of pressing "shift+cmd+."... * Edit: While Alfred can see files marked hidden by `chflags hidden {filename}`, it can't see filenames prefixed with a "." (as in `~/.bashrc`) -- at least, not in any straightforward way that I'm aware of.
  3. Version: Alfred 4.1 (Build 1167) I often wish I could write myself a note and place it wherever I want inside a workflow. This could be as simple as a plain, colorless text box, or something more configureable. The issue with what we have currently (the "Edit Note..." action) is that the text is fixed beneath whatever object houses it. As a result, the user is forced to write a note about a specific object, not the workflow at large.
  4. I noticed that Alfred calculators (both the standard and advanced) miss a "commonly" used function, the factorial. Why isn't it there? Another missing feature is that of also having ** as operator for exponentiation (since it is common in many programming languages, given that ^ is used for bitwise xor). Spotlight, for example, has both such functions.
  5. At the moment, when you assign a key combination to a particular hotkey in Alfred, it keeps you from using the same key combination with a different hotkey. While this make sense in most scenarios, when the hotkey is assigned to a particular app - as specified in the Related Apps panel of the hotkey, and selecting the option that limits the hotkey to when the app takes focus - it seems unnecessary to restrict the user from using the same key combination with other apps that might have focus. As a result, I'd like to request this feature be added to Alfred. Without this ability, it
  6. Could an optional "Paste and remove from history" hotkey be added to Alfred's Clipboard History feature? Sometimes I work with sensitive information that I want to pop off the clipboard history when pasting. Launchbar has this feature in its clipboard history and I've found it very handy. If I'm copying some sensitive information around, I just paste with ⌃⌥⌘V (my chosen hotkey) and know the information will be removed from the clipboard history as it's pasted. I'm aware items can be deleted manually from the clipboard history using fn+delete, but clearing out items manually is te
  7. This is a relatively minor feature request, but I'd love it if Alfred's Bookmarks search displayed each bookmark's full folder hierarchy. At the moment, it only shows the enclosing/parent folder's name in brackets. While my folder hierarchy for bookmarks is relatively simple compared to other files, there are some areas where I'd find it incredibly helpful to get more information about the location of each bookmark (particularly with research-related bookmarks). To explain what I'm looking for, consider the following example for a bookmark to this forum, which is located in a folde
  8. Now with the inability use (the awesome) SizzlingKeys with Music in Catalina, we need the ability to have Skip Backward & Skip Forward for Music/iTunes such that a simple key combo can activate it. Here's how it was set in SizzlingKeys: Screenshot
  9. Christmas Wish for Alfred: I wish users had some control over the size of the left panel in Alfred's Preferences (not the sidebar, but the panel next to it). As shown below, I'd like to be able to drag the panel right - at times, when viewing my Workflows - as the current fixed version doesn't allow users to see much of their workflows' names. Personally, I keep a lot of resources to use as examples for building or modifying new workflows, but it's impossible to see their titles or descriptions under the current space allotment (i.e., even if I went to a less ridiculous naming conv
  10. Hi, I have been a user of TotalFinder by Binaryage for a long time, even longer than Alfred has been around. Due to changes on OS X it is no longer possible to run TotalFinder (unles you turn off SIPS), I'm about to update to Mojave, and this will be the end of TotalFinder for me. There is one feature I cannot live without, and I think it must be possible to make Alfred do this. This is such a great usability improvement I feel it would be a huge benefit to Alfred to implement something like this. The visor window is a Finder window that rolls up from the bottom of the screen w
  11. Is there any way to search my files or emails among all my google accounts? It seems that it is currently only search within one of my acoounts in gmail or google drive. Does the google drive search only give me match in the file title or also in contents (e.g., one word in the PDF match my keyword but not in the file title)
  12. In Alfred's "File Search" preferences panel, it'd be helpful if the butler added a "Don't Show" option for Videos. He's already got an option for "music", how about videos, too? And, if that's not a possibility, how about a general exclusions panel where users can drop in anything that they might want to exclude, such as MP4s, Excel files, etc. Thanks for your consideration!
  13. It would be great if one could exclude from all search results files with a specific extension. There are files in my Documents folder that I never want to look for, e.g., compiled files such as byte code for Python classes (.pyc), Java libraries (.jar), Java compiled classes (.class), automatically generated web pages (.html files) and so on. I guess adding an option that hides files with some user-specified extension from Alfred search results should not be hard to implement (also in a second step, i.e., it is not necessary to exclude them from Alfred in
  14. I'd love to see each file's tags listed in the information provided by File Navigation's Preview Panel. Tags seem more important than most of the info that is currently listed (e.g., app the file opens in, date created, etc.). Why not list the file's tags there? At the moment, Alfred doesn't have an easy way for viewing or modifying tags, and this seems like a good first step that won't demand a complete overhaul of anything. Ideally, I'd love to see Alfred have its own file action for tags, too, which allowed users to view the file's current tags a
  15. Hey team, I understand the security design decision behind that doesn't allow perform auto-expansion in the password-type field. However, in my use cases, I do need to type in lots of passwords. So why not just open it as an option to let users to decide whether to auto-expand in password field or not? Thanks in advance!
  16. *************** Please see new thread ****************** Alfred already has the ability to search in many different contexts due to the versatility of workflows, and this is great. The downside is that the more workflows that you have, the more Alfred starts to lose part of its initial appeal as being a quick way to search everything in one place. For example, I'd like my pinboard bookmarks to always show up in my default results since they have equal importance to me as the files on my computer. This is just one e
  17. I love to prefix and lowercase all workflows in Alfred. So for example I prefix my workflows with a: (as can be seen below) I also like to lowercase all the workflows (my personal preference). I also wish I could prefix other people's workflows according to their category. As I have over 200 workflows and it will ease searching for them greatly. The problem with this however is that when I update any one of these workflows, which name I changed, it will restore the workflow's name to what the original author had (not lowercase and without my prefix). Would
  18. Hello Everyone! This is my first post here on the forums, but I hope it's my first of many. Anyway, after using the Alfred remote app for sometime, I've been impressed with the ease of use and the potential for remote control over my local network. However, it seems like the remote app only taps into just a fraction of Alfred's potential. One feature that I believe would greatly expand the use of the remote app would be the ability to pass direct user input in the form of text or file selection from iOS to a remote trigger for an Alfred workflow on the host machine. Namely, executing a r
  19. Hey! It would be nice if you could add syntax highlighting, line numbers and probably themes into the workflow "Run Script" window. I do believe it's not so difficult to implement. Thanks in advance.
  20. I just recently bought Alfred and the remote to go with it. First, I should say that I love the remote. It is a great idea but I've noticed two annoyances with it. First, there is a major limitation in that it can only be used if you're on the same WiFi network as your computer. It would be more useful to be able to run workflows, etc. from anywhere (e.g. using my cellular data connection to issue a command when I'm not home). Second, when I'm at home using it to control music or a movie or something, it's pretty annoying to have to wait 5-10 seconds for the remote to connect before I'm able t
  21. Lastpass just released their CLI. http://blog.lastpass.com/2014/10/open-sourced-lastpass-command-line.html & https://github.com/LastPass/lastpass-cli We can def get a workflow going to copy your passwords, but would love to see integration like 1pass
  22. The merging feature is fantastic, but currently it only supports tab with space or new line. For working with spreadsheets it would be tremendously helpful if there was a merge and separate with "tab". In most spreadsheet applications, on paste, this automatically inserts items into new cells - very helpful for those that has to do spreadsheet work! Hope this will make it in into a future release. Keep up the great work, thanks!
  23. Hi, i use the "email" keyword very frequently. However, i'd like to be able to enter an email address that is not in the address book, e.g. "email foo@example.com" because i don't keep contacts around if i only want to send them email once. Currently, this is not possible. Ideally, the suggestions would work as in Apple Mail, i.e. suggest all addresses that i have sent email to in the past, even if they're not in the address book. Thanks for your consideration! Greetings Patrick
  24. There are many workflows that need configuring before being used (mainly the ones that need some type of account login/setting). However, there's no practical way of implementing that via Alfred. I find making users edit settings manually or having a separate option that'll always show in the results, for an action you typically only run once, to be non-optimal experiences. For this purpose, I have two workflows that employ a script filter, that does something like this if (settings_file_exists) show xml with text — “configure your account” arg — <some_string_to_let_t
  25. It's always seemed weird to me that Alfred displays usage stats in the way he does. Given that it's a discrete data set wouldn't a histogram make more sense?
