I have a File Action based workflow that runs a bash script on the files that are selected in the Finder when I hit Cmd + Opt + \. It works fine. but I'd like to have a variant of this workflow that can be given some text input which will then be used in the bash script later in the workflow. The problem is I can't see anyway to make this happen with Alfred. Ideally I'd like to be able to have a text entry field shown where I can type or paste text and then workflow would then use that. Since I couldn't see a way to do that I figured I might be able to put the text on the clipboard first and have the workflow get the text from the clipboard, but there doesn't appear to be any way to do that either. Does anyone know of a way to achieve the simple act of providing text input to a File Action based workflow? Thanks
As foreign Mac users, we always use input method to enter text. In many input methods, direction keys (most as uparrow and downarrow) are used to select words or characters for the corresponding language. However, when we enter the text by input method in the fallback results field, the direction keys are captured to select the fallback actions other than the words of input method. This phenomenon occurs always and is quite distracting. Conversely, in Spotlight, the words' selection for input methods is always prior to the selection of actions. There is no doubt that the Alfred users in many countries are suffering from this bug. Please let us know any further information of the debugging process at your earliest convenience. Many thanks!
