  1. I know people have requested image support in the clipboard history feature in Alfred. That would be great, but I would really like to see support for maintaining text formatting (rich text) in the snippets and clipboard history. As of now all text is converted into plain text in the history and snippets. It would great if formatting were not lost.
  2. Hey there, I request the feature to have Alfred trigger on clipboard update, so that I can parse and update my clipboard contents according to my needs. Use Case: I copy a facebook link like this: https://www.facebook.com/TheBestCatPage/photos/a.994717007212298.1073741828.994713583879307/1593316110685715/?type=3&theater My workflow automatically strips the ?/type=3&theater from the link and update the clipboard contents. Use Case 2: I copy a link that exceeds a certain character limit. My workflow grabs the clipboard content, runs them through a link shortener of my choice, and updates the clipboard contents with my new, shortened link. I hope this can be done, it'd be awesome. While LinkClean is very helpful, it requires that I have to run it - I'd like to get rid of that step!
  3. It would be great if we could specify a tag / CSS path to display results within Alfred itself. IE. "so node open file" https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=node+open+file would return (below, similar to spotlight) the results from the stack overflow query... at least the first 5 or 6 or something. So a search result would be: ".js-search-result h3 a" And the link would be: ".js-search-result h3 a" (it would take the href) Clearly that wouldn't work on all sights, but it would be easy enough to return actual results to Alfred and would allow faster access to the exact result the user wants .
  4. Hi guys, I'm transitioning from LaunchBar and one thing it does, in my opinion, way better is the trigger for file and folder actions. While it might be good for some users to have a separate shortcut I would find it very intuitive to just press and hold the common Alfred Shortcut (whatever it is) to trigger the action menu. So I wouldn't have to remember a second shortcut. AND: LaunchBar also allows you to trigger actions for the currently active folder. So you are working in Finder, have a folder open and for example want to create a textfile or add it to the buffer etc. You just give the Finder window focus and press + hold the trigger shortcut. Currently you would have to navigate one directory up, reselect the folder you want and press the separate shortcut. Which is way more hassle and cognitive load. Best, Alex Addendum: This is also true for various other actions like hotkey triggers etc. This might be a deliberate decision of the team, but for my part I would find it much easier to remember just one shortcut and knowing that Alfred would come up when I press and and hold no matter if I've selected text or a folder.
  5. Hello I'm a new advanced user on alfred with powerpack. I use also contact module. A missing feature would be to be able to find in contact details. Some use cases : * looking for identity on a missing call : I can not look for a contact from its phone number * looking for a company contact, when I've forgotten his name * looking for a note : I look for a contact from a keyword stored in contact notes Would be great if it would be available, in particular linked with Google Contacts. We can find this feature, for example, in dashboard pane in macos with contacts widget. This feature is available on Contact Filter plugin but is not resilient : not available to have a kind of "LIKE" operator : if phone number is stored as "+337 27 36 356 22", you will find nothing if you type "7273635622" or "+337273635622" ... Regards
  6. I mostly bought Alfred for text replacement and clipboard features. I saw something in a competing clipboard product that'd be pretty helpful, and I can't seem to find a way to pull it off with workflows as-is. The feature lets you create a script that will be applied to the text in the clipboard, with a preview window and some other niceties. For me, the value is I use a bewildering number of different slightly-incompatible Markdown-like syntaxes all day, and it'd be nice to work in my editor in one universal format and paste via scripts that convert to the various idiosyncratic ones. Their example is "make an HTML list from items" but I'm seeing more value in things like "Let me convert some CSV rows to the three dumb Markdown table formats used across the systems I need." It'd save me a lot of dang effort, and could be as simple as giving me a workflow that lets me use a clipboard snippet as input. I think I could pull that off right now via AppleScript, but it's unwieldy enough I'd rather just buy the other product. Same time, I've already paid for Alfred, so I'd rather not switch.
  7. I love contacts preview and the fact that I can search for a person through Alfred and get a quick glance over where the person lives, what his social media accounts are, his website and notes I made. The only thing I wish if Alfred was more intelligent about these links. For example here is my Contact card : I can make actionable urls and that is great but I just wish that clicking on the twitter handle of the contact would bring up TweetBot with that profile name, if user has no Twitter Client, than a webpage opens. I use this to open url links in TweetBot (http://robmathers.github.io/tweetbotlinks/) so perhaps if you make that field actionable with url, then TweetBot will open for that link. I wish to have it work for LinkedIn, Facebook and Flickr. You can skip MySpace Thank you. I also really wish there was a modifier hotkey to go from here : With a modifier key, straight to Contacts app itself with the user in focus. I also really wish to make a contact filter action that when activated will only search through my contacts. I have a lot of contacts in the Contacts app and I don't want to mix my Alfred search with contacts but I still want to search for them. A dedicated contact search filter would be amazing. I hope these are all possible to do. Thank you a lot.
  8. My idea is to get more from File buffer ability. It is superb right now, but I think it could be even better with drag and drop. What I mean is to select files into buffer and then would be possible to drag those anywhere we want to drop. Similar to DragonDrop app.
  9. One feature that would help my workflow extensively would be to allow clipboard snippets to include links and images. I constantly have to send directions that includes links and pictures and I can't use Alfred for it because it only stores plain text. I also could use this feature with sharing information in emails that includes links. Please consider this functionality. :-)
  10. Instead of forcing an iPhone to be connected to the same wifi network to have Alfred Remote functionality, it would be nice if it could instead connect by bluetooth pairing. Has this feature been requested before?
  11. Hi, I have a headless unit which I use at home and it would be useful if I could extend some of my workflows to output to a notification in Alfred Remote on my iPad so I don't have to faff about VNC'ing to the machine to check if/when actions complete. This would also be useful when I'm away from my desk in a meeting or something. I have a set up where I can call certain workflows to check statuses of things and then auto generate and send an email with the results to me, this solution while working isn't quite as elegant, or as ideal, as I would like. Cheers
  12. I have used the 'Actions' app, and I'm really liking Alfred remote and I find it much easier to use. Particularly because I can create actions in Alfred which is much quicker. One thing that the Actions app does however, that is really useful is it 'pins' sheets to certain apps. I would love to see that capability in Alfred Remote.
  13. Hi, I use to work with nodejs projects so I use to have folders with dependencies files (node_modules) inside every project I have. The problem is that Alfred shows them when I search for anything so I get a lot of noise and is very annoying. Is there any way to remove some folders from the scope? Thanks PS: My projects are inside my home folder. EDIT: Ok, I've just found this threat: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/3346-exclude-folders-and-filetypes-both-globally-and-for-file-filters/
  14. Repro: (1) set to sync settings in a dropbox folder, (2) add a custom web search, (3) close preferences, (4) reopen preferences, expect to see new addition, actually its not there View repro video: http://screencast.com/t/kndRE4aWLBB Alfred v2.3 (264) OSX 10.9.2 Dropbox v2.6.33 continual repro, haven't found a workaround yet
  15. Hi there, I have a question regarding the features section in Alfred 2. In Alfred v1 it was possible to add your own features, but I couldn't yet figure out how to do that in v2. Did I miss something or is it just not possible to do this any more? Thanks, R
  16. I'm smitten with Alfred v2. Such an improvement over v1. I would like to suggest an option to make Alfred search window even wider than the current max (I believe it's 680px). My reasoning is that I use it very often now with workflows, clipboards etc that benefit greatly from the extra width to gain more context of the selected action. Why not have the option to make it 800px wide or more?
  17. It would be awesome to be given the option to input an arbitrary path to a binary in the "Language" specifier for the various workflow components. This would allow for supporting alternate shells (I've seen a few zsh suggestions on here) or language runtimes (like node). While this could cut down on workflow portability, it would be the workflow author's job to identify requirements to people for the workflow to function. Another reason for arbitrary paths would be to easily support updated/alternate versions of existing language binaries. For example, the built-in OS X version of Ruby is currently versioned 1.8.7-p358. Ruby version 1.8.7 will be officially deprecated as of this summer. Again, workflow authors could provide instructions on installing and using up-to-date interpreters.
