  1. I would love to start using Alfred’s file buffer more often, especially with some of the nice additions made in Alfred 4. However, Alfred is in dire need of better Finder-Buffer integration. Either of the following would solve this: a File Action that adds files to the Buffer, or a Hotkey that can be used to add files directly from Finder to the Buffer (i.e., in Preferences → Features → File Search → Buffer). Under the current setup, the ability to use a hotkey to file action files from Finder is great (Preferences → Features → Actions → Selection Hotkey), but it doesn’t help with situations where you want to action the file more than once. Several people have created workflows that effectively mimic Allred’s keystrokes, but they’re all pretty fragile (example). In addition, I still haven’t found any that work with multiple files. This feels like something that ought to be addressed on a system-wide basis. Alfred’s a great butler, but I think he can carry even more things! 😉 Thanks for your consideration.
  2. Greetings, Is it possible to have several hotkeys to open Alfted? For example I would want to open it with F1 and with alt+space. A bit of context if you wonder why I need this (can be skipped) So I always had Alfred on F1, before apple introduced their new MBP with a touch bar, so there is no F1 now. I tried to get used to this keyboard for almost a year, but could not. So I bought external old apple magic keyboard with all the keys and use it with laptop. So now I want to have my F1 hotkey back, but I am not always with this external keyboard, when I am on the go, I use internal keyboard, and on it I need to have a hotkey instead of F1 Thank you!
  3. I'm trying to create a simple workflow to open a folder with a hotkey. I've done other hotkey workflows int he past with no problem. When I click in the box to enter the key macro (it's got the blue box around it so I know it's selected), it just does nothing when I enter any keystrokes. I went to one of my existing hotkey workflows and was able to modify the key macro, so it seems to only be impacting net new workflows. Anyone seen this before? Alfred 4.0.1 b1078 macOS Mojave 10.14.5
  4. In Alfred 2, I have a lot of Hotkey > Launch Apps/Files workflows, where I use global hotkeys to open/switch-between applications. I've noticed a slight delay (~200ms) between triggering a hotkey combination (⇧^C) and its corresponding Action (showing Chrome) taking place. I still have Alfred 1.3.3 (267) installed, and when I use that instead (making sure to not run both versions side-by-side), the delay is not there. It's much snappier. Alfred 2.0.1 (173) OS X 10.8.3 Aside from that, love the new Alfred
  5. When it's been a while since I've opened the clipboard history, when I hit the hotkey nothing happens. When I press it a second time, then it will show up fine and will continue to work fine for a while, but then again if I don't use it for awhile I will have to do it twice again. Is anyone else seeing this problem? I'm on mac sierra 10.13.5 (17F77)
  6. Alfred 3.6.2 (918), Sierra 10.12.6. A very minor issue. If you set a Hotkey that includes ⌘ and then (quickly) hit ⌘S to save the Hotkey, Alfred sets the Hotkey to "⌘ double tap" (and also saves it). Presumably Alfred is still listening for the second keypress of a double-tap hotkey. AFAIK, double-tapping ⌘⇧6 or ⌘⌥ isn't supported, so Alfred should stop listening for a second modifier keypress if the Hotkey contains multiple modifiers or non-modifier keys.
  7. Alfred 3.6, macOS 10.13.3 I have the Clipboard Viewer Hotkey set to Command-Control-spacebar but Alfred is not responding to it, instead responding to Command-Option-Spacebar which is clashing with an InDesign CC keyboard command. I've quit Alfred and relaunched but this didn't resolve the issue. I've also tried to toggle the hotkey to something else and back again but Alfred would not accept a new hotkey.
  8. Hi, Not sure if this is a bug or how it is supposed to run. My issue is I can't use the hot key CMD + Return(or any of the other hot key options listed in the advanced tab) to perform a web search in my default browser without having a fall back result. I like keeping Alfred minimal and didnt want to have any fall back searches. Id rather simply use the hot key however, once I remove all the fall back searches, the hot key no longer triggers a web search.
  9. Hi guys, I use snippets a lot in Alfred 3, and I badly need a quicker way to edit existing snippets. They're so awesome! Please see 1st screenshot: if Cmd+S on selected snippet would open it directly (2nd screenshot) within Alfred preferences, that would be a simple but fantastic improvement! I'm suggesting Cmd+S for this because it is very similar to the already existing Cmd+S shortcut which transforms a clipping from clipboard history into a new snippet. Basically hitting Cmd+S would mean: "create a new snippet or open it for editing if it already exists". That would feel very intuitive! After hitting Cmd+S, this window would popup to make you able to quickly update the existing snippet. Thanks! Vermeer
  10. Hi, Is it possible to add this feature? It would be really nice if we had hotkeys like delete file/folder in navigation mode. For instance: cmd + delete. Like standard hotkey in mac os for removing files. It's really convenient. I used to have this in other similar extension. What do you think?
  11. It seems that Alfred only support Ctrl, Option, Command, Shift + Key to trigger a workflow?
  12. Evernote Reminders for Alfred Quickly modify individual or multiple Evernote reminders How to use: Download workflow and import into Alfred Open Evernote Select reminder(s) Use [ ⌘ + ⇧ + R ] to bring up the menu Get things done Note: hotkey will only work when Evernote is open. View on GitHub
  13. Hey guys, I'm wondering if there is a way to setup the search location if the hot key is triggered to the screen of the "current active window". If there are some screens connected to my Macbook, the search only appears at the notebook screen, even if I work on the extra monitor. FYI: Spotlight does it the way I want Alfred to do it, so I'm pretty sure if this feature is available for now, I can be achievable in future Best, Stefan
  14. Alfred 3.4.1 [860] When installing an update for a workflow, Alfred migrates the keyboard shortcut assigned to a Hotkey, but it drops any Related Apps on the floor. For example, I use @vitor's MarkdownBulletin workflow, but I have the Hotkey set to only be active in Safari and Google Chrome. I just installed an update, and Alfred correctly migrated my keyboard shortcut to the newer version, but the Related Apps have disappeared.
  15. As in the title, I'd like the ability to change the hotkeys for working with multiple file selections. Currently it's locked to opt+arrows or shift+opt+arrows. Not that big of a deal though, probably a low priority request.
  16. Hello, I've been trying to change the Alfred hotkey to toggle using shift+w for a couple of hours with no success. I am used to toggle Dash using shift+q so I don't think it is a limitation of OSX but in Alfred itself. Is there any workaround I can do, perhaps edit configuration files or something like that? Thanks
  17. Hi there, I'm trying to use Xcode's built in hotkey for Add Documentation - command-option-slash - however Alfred always preempts this (I do realize I can change the hotkey in Xcode but I'd rather not do that). Command-Option-Slash always pops up Alfred and defaults to my home folder. I believe this is the "Show list of available Actions for selected Finder item" command but not sure. I'm not sure where to disable that specific hotkey (or change it) in Alfred. Can someone help me out? Thanks, Joe
  18. Hi, I am a photographer using adobe photoshop, lightroom, and bridge. This is my first day using Alfred, so please pardon my ignorance. I have just created my first workflow with hot keys to open these three applications. I do not see any available action to also close or minimize these applications. Is there a way to do this? Thanks, -Zach
  19. I have a Workflow that is triggered by the Hotkey: Ctrl+Alt+K The result of the Hotkey is to grab the current selection in the Finder and send that path as {query} into a Terminal command. Works great! However, what I'd like to do is invoke Alfred, type "kin", have the workflow appear, press Return and have the flow grab the current selection in the Finder etc. In other words, use a Keyword to grab the selection as {query}. I can't work out how to do that. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  20. I've been using option+space as the Alfred Hotkey for many years. Now I'm using Alfred 3. However, after I upgrade to Sierra, the hotkey sometimes lost response. It just won't work occasionally. When it start to not working, Alfred is still running in the background, and I can use spotlight to search Alfred 3 to activate the input bar. However even that I still cannot use the hotkey--To make it work again, I have to explicitly "Quit Alfred", and start Alfred 3 again. When option+space doesn't work, it just shows nothing. I can confirm there is no other hotkey assigned to option+space in Keyboard preference, and I can also confirm that in Karabiner's event viewer, option+space is indeed working in this case. Any method to track this problem down? It is really annoying. Thanks a lot!
  21. I'm coming over from Launchbar (it's been giving me problems lately - figured it was time to check out Alfred) but one thing I do like about the clipboard history in LB is that the hotkey for it is ONLY active once you've already got the input window visible. So, in LB I do cmd-space to launch and then cmd-k to show the clipboard history. The reason I like this is that it allows me to use simple hotkeys that would otherwise conflict with other software packages. Make no mistake, having global hotkey support is great too, but there's times when I just want Alfred to behave like other apps and only recognize hotkeys when it has 'focus'. Is this possible and I'm just missing something?
  22. I play League of Legends. I also play it with a different setup for the hotkeys. Specifically: Command + A / S / D / F for quick casting abilities that mean my thumb is usually on Command. Maybe I'm getting lost in the preferences or having bad luck with the forum and Google search; but I can't seem to find where an option to ignore Alfred calls while in specific applications. Often while I'm playing, I'll hit Command + Command and Alfred will suck focus right from under League of Legends! While League is still on screen, pressing my abilities and such no longer work. So I am thinking that I could avoid this and still have Alfred running while the game is too if it ignores for hotkey activation while League is in the active application. I'm hoping this isn't a premium feature, nor would I want to get powerpack just for this. But should it not already be a thing—I'm hoping it can be done. I've had my Alfred hotkey on Command + Command for so long now I'm not sure I can change as I still use Alfred over spotlight.
  23. Hi, I would like to create a hotkey for the Finder that opens a selected file in different apps, depending on its filename/path. I tried the filter utility but it does not let any file go through. Even if a filter set to "is not equal to" with an empty value does not execute the connected action. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Tekl
  24. Alfred is so far so good... But can I only use the F7 to F9 function on my mac keyboard to control the currently playing media? Is there any way that I can set this hotkey so I can use it on my iPhones & iPads with Alfred Remote to control the current application other than iTunes (e.g. Netease Music, Diumoo, vlc or other app) ? Cause now it seems that this hot key only works for iTunes...
  25. Alfred 3.0 Current: Given I'm viewing the Alfred Preferences on the general tab When I try to set the hotkey to CMD+Space Then nothing happens Expected: Given I'm viewing the Alfred Preferences on the general tab When I try to set the hotkey to CMD+Space The hotkey is set to CMD+Space Notes: - I can set the hot key to CTRL+Space or CMD+Any alpha-numeric key. - Neither Shift+Space nor Alt+Space work either.
