Hi everyone! A few Alfred starter questions. It's going to be quite a long list, as the more I use this wonderful software, the more eager I get to explore its capabilities. 1. Text expansion: do you folks prefer to use macOS's text replacement feature or Alfred's snippets? Alfred's offering is superior, of course, but macOS text replacements can be synced to mobile iOS devices, which is very compelling. 2. We all know macOS's open and save dialogs are a nightmare, especially after you're used to efficient keyboard navigation with Alfred. Is there ANY way whatsoever to apply Alfred's basic File Search capabilities to the open and save panels? If not, is there any other software that can offer this? 3. I would like to know if there is a way to perform a more intelligent file search (I believe this is also called "fuzzy" search, correct me if I'm wrong) in Alfred. For example, let's say I have the following directory: I expect Alfred to find the folder "Red" only if I type a partial string like "do cha re". Similarly, if I type something such as "do cha bl en", ideally Alfed would find "Engine.jpg" inside "/Blue". Launch Bar behaves like this and it works very well! It would be amazing if Alfred would do the same. 4. Is a difference between pressing `⌘+C` (copying) and hitting `↵` (selecting) on an item from the clipboard history? 5. I noticed that when interacting (whether copying or selecting) with a clipboard item, that item jumps to the top of the list. Is there any way to disable that? 6. Is it possible to activate Quick Look on clipboard items? 7. Is it possible to open the File Action menu for items in the clipboard history? Some of the clipboard items are files for all intents and purposes, so making them compatible with File Actions is almost a no-brainer. And I can definitely imagine various File Actions for other clipboard items that are not "files" per se, such as copied images and texts (like Imgur uploading for the former, and creating a new note in Notes for the latter). Thank you very much!
