  1. In working on my Monterey Theme pack, I realized that macOS does many more sophisticated things when rendering its UI than what Alfred allows me to control when designing my themes. I realize that keeping the theming system simple should be a goal, but nuance and consistency can be added without adding too much complexity. For example, when I right-click on an item to set its color, there is a list of "Theme colours", but these could include a submenu that includes System Colors or Dynamic System Colors: Other enhancements that could go a long way: Allow me to set a gradient on the window and Selected Result Background.¹ Allow me to access or use the AppleHighlightColor as a color variable. Allow me to control the background blur setting on the window (this setting has been deprecated) Allow me to access SwiftUI API System Colors. Allow me to access AppKit API Dynamic System Colors. Update the preview rendering to be more accurate (the Visual Effect blur effect seems to create a false rendering of the window. ² ¹ Based on a Sketch file that Apple distributes, it appears that the Selection Focus is actually a gradient with a de-saturated Background Blur: ² Compare the look of the rendered preview (which has an ugly 1px border): With the actual:
  2. I start with something in my clipboard. I use one of my snippets in Alfred that utilizes the {clipboard} keyword to take what's currently in my clipboard and injects it into the snippet text then pastes it. When I execute the snippet presumably, it copies the snippet into the system clipboard then pastes it into the foreground application. The issue I face is that my clipboard is now overwritten with the snippet text, not my original text. I'm not able to quickly reuse my snippet again, since the initial text is now different. When I execute the snippet in this state I get compounded recursive text pasted and ever expanding clipboard contents whet the snippet is used repeatedly. Example: I start with the text "watermelon" in my clipboard. My snippet is: "My favorite fruit is {clipboard}." When I execute the snippet, it's pasted as intended, but the clipboard now contains the text: "My favorite fruit is watermelon." When I execute the snippet again, the text pasted is: "My favorite fruit is My favorite fruit is watermelon.." I recommend an option (checkbox) be added to the bottom of the edit snippet screen that says, "Preserve initial clipboard contents" or "Do not write to clipboard" or "Prevent overwriting clipboard" or something to that effect, like so:
  3. It would be great if you could improve text navigation in the input text box. So far left/right arrows move by single character and command + arrow moves to the beginning/end of the text. I'd like to have option + arrow to jump between words as well. Furthermore it would be great if you can configure word boundaries - e.g. whitespaces, delimitters, camel humps etc. Thank you!
  4. This is in reference to short Twitter conversation https://twitter.com/alfredapp/status/732980169980448768 In Default Results, I have added "com.apple.alias-file" as a file type to complete, which was a workaround recommend in another forum post a long time ago. This makes aliases to badly named apps come up. An example is Oracle SQL Developer, which is named SQLDeveloper.app, but which I want to launch by typing Oracle... No matter how many times I launch it, the alias for this app does not even show up in the list of results until I get much further into typing the name. I also have this app installed on Windows in Parallels, and the Parallels version that shows up first when I start typing in "Oracle", even though I never launch that one. The Mac version, the one I want to start, does not even appear in the list of results until I type "oracle sql d". Until that point it's all Windows version (in "Applications (Parallels)" folder) in #1 position, followed by SQL script files. I was really hoping version 3 would address this issue, but that does not appear to be the case. Suggestions very welcome.
