  1. Hello, if I perform the "Move to..." file action on a file on my internal Mac SSD (on Desktop for example) and try to move it to an external drive Alfred is coping the file instead of moving it. I discussed the issue here: https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/11442-move-file-action-is-always-copying-instead-of-moving/ And the only other mention of this problem I could find is from 2013/2014: https://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1331-move-file-not-always-working/ As I understand, Alfred is using the Finder to move files and the default Finder function is copy if the destination is on an other drive/partition as the source file. This is an explanation but still the action is named "Move to..." not "Sometimes move sometimes copy to..." so I think this is a bug/behaviour that should be fixed. What you were doing when the issue happened Trying to move a file from Desktop to external drive Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action Every single time Include any screenshots that might help us - Include the Alfred version & build number you are using Alfred v3.6.1 [910] with Powerpack Include your OS X version Macbook Air with Sierra 10.12.6 and Macbook Pro with High Sierra 10.13.3
  2. When I try to move a file by means of the standard OPTION-COMMAND \ and selecting a folder the operation fails with: "Osascript: Can't Open Default Scripting Component" This behaviour seems to be related with my upgrade to High Sierra, but I am not sure. I have not installed or changed any scripts recently How can I resolve this ? Jaap
  3. I was not very happy with the existing solutions, so I just created my own. The workflow itself is quite simple just typ in the keyword "lay" (or chose another of your liking) followed by: full = Maximize left, right, top, bottom = Halves of screen topleft, topright, bottomleft, bottomright = Quaters of screen 11,12,13,21,22,23,31,32,33 = Thrids of screen 11-12,11-13,11-21,11-22 ... = Some other sizes based on thrids ... well the script is quite flexible, so I'm waiting for suggestions For MacOS 10.8 (Mountain Lion): The workflow itself can be found here: https://github.com/untoldwind/alfred2-layout/raw/1.0_Mountain_Lion/Layout.alfredworkflow and (obviously) its sources here: https://github.com/untoldwind/alfred2-layout For MacOS 10.9 (Mavericks): The version above does not work (unluckily). An alternative (though somewhat experimental) version can be found here: Release: https://github.com/untoldwind/alfred2-layout/raw/1.1_Mavericks/Layout.alfredworkflow Experimental (Bleeding edge): https://github.com/untoldwind/alfred2-layout/raw/master/Layout.alfredworkflow By the way: It is multi-screen-able. Even though you cannot move windows from one screen to another (yet?) the scripts tries to figure out with screen you mean (depending on the size of the visible area). A short note about the implementation: The script is written in python using PyObjC and the ScriptingBridge. This should be no problem as both is shiped as part of MacOS since 10.5. It the application supports scripting, the window is moved "directly". Unluckily some Applications do not support this, so there is a fallback using "SystemEvents". This only works if you have UI scripting enabled: http://www.macosxautomation.com/applescript/uiscripting/For 10.9 (Mavericks) this has slightly changed. A more detailed description can be found here: http://www.tekrevue.com/2013/06/25/how-to-enable-access-for-assistive-devices-in-os-x-mavericks/ In our case "Alfred 2" requires UIScripting access At the moment there are no hotkeys defined, which should be straight forward though
  4. I get incredibly paranoid pretty much every time I use these file actions. Partial reason for this request ...and my paranoia, is how copy and move silently fail if the file(s) already exists in the destination folder. So, I've developed a habit of always navigating to the destination folder to make sure the file(s) were copied or moved there. Which kind of makes these folder actions useless for me. I might as well just copy or cut and paste from finder folder to another and that would be more or less just as convenient, if not more convenient. Maybe there could be a osx notification that says: "File succesfully copied.", or something. I mean sure... When you move a file and it disappears, it probably ended up in the destination folder, but when you're copying, you won't be able to tell. You just have to assume or make sure it did. Of course you can't see the file disappear if you do it all in Alfred and you don't have the finder folder open. In addition to this, It would be great if Alfred handled copying and moving more like finder does, when it detects the file(s) already exist in destination folder. The way it gives you options: "Keep both", "Stop", "Replace".
  5. Hey, I saw a workflow request on /r/Alfred that interested me as well, and saw that no one made it yet, so I quickly wrapped up one with a little bit of Google-ing. Basically, it's a really basic workflow that moves your current window between monitor(s) with the tap of a hotkey or by entering "jump" into Alfred (both are configurable of course). I don't think I'll be maintaining this workflow, as there really is not much to maintain, it's a very simple AppleScript behind, but feel free to comment here and I'll check it every once in a while to see if anything is needed.

  6. Alfred won't copy or move files to folders that start with a full stop/period.
  7. Is it possible to move files to a remote server when my Mac is connected to said server? I connect to my office's server (Command+K) routinely, and while it's connected I can access it like any other drive on my Mac, but Alfred doesnt seem to allow me to navigate through the server's files. Specifically I'd love to be able to copy local files to that server for backup purposes. Is this possible? or are servers just beyond the reach of Alfred?
  8. So I read how Alfred propagates a list of folders that you have visited when you use the Move or Copy feature. My question is, how or when is this list cleared? I futzed a Move and now have /Volumes in the list. Uh.. How can I clear /Volumes or is there a keyboard shortcut to delete folders from this list?? Or is there some way to clear the list (except for the default folders I first saw?
