  1. I'd like to be able to see the preview pane with the search results ( say while using 'find' ) like the preview shown while navigating paths . Currently i need to press SHIFT or Command-Y over each result . Is this possible as an preference option or a workflow option ?
  2. In Alfred's filesystem navigation mode, the entire right half of the file list is given over to a preview, with filenames being truncated to make room for it. In common situations, the preview adds nothing useful, while the truncation takes a whole lot of important data away: In such situations, it's both easier and faster to scroll through the contents in Finder, where I can see the complete filenames, instead of going through them one-by-one in Alfred so I can see the full name at the bottom of Alfred's window. Being able to turn off the preview, so I could see the filepath, would fix that. If I want to see a preview, I can hit ⇧.
  3. Maybe a setting was changed in the update, and this is as simple as modifying a setting that I'm not sure where to find? I used to be able to preview gifs with the following sequence of actions: use a workflow that simply searches through my gifs folder, select a file through a query, Press `fn` key and see a preview of the file. All of this still happens but now I no longer get the active preview? Is there a way to get this back? I'm sure there are much better ways to do this as well, but I've grown accustomed to that workflow and like using it for quickly previewing gifs. I've included a video and gif of me going through it (I know some people hate gifs) Everything works as it used to, but now I get gifs as an image with a white border instead of a preview of them playing. Thanks again and sorry if the answer is obvious, I promise I searched around the settings and forum a bit before asking (but it is after 4 pm on a Friday ?) https://cl.ly/3T253Y003U2a <---Video https://cl.ly/2A273i2W2R38 <---Gif
  4. This has always been something that bothered me. I'd love if if I could preview/navigate the search results just like you can on Finder. In finder you press space (or what ever) to preview and then you can use arrow keys to move to another file without having to close and open the preview window in between. If I'm trying to find a file based on the visual contents in Alfred I have to basically: Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) Arrow Down Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) Arrow down Shift ( Open ) Shift ( Close ) and so on... until I've found the file I'm looking for or I ran out of files to preview. It would be easier if I could just press arrow down (or up) while the preview window is open.
  5. How can you preview links in clipboard history? I copy a lot of bitly links into my clipboard and re-use them, the challenge is when I'm trying to sort through the Clipboard history I can't tell the content of them. Is this possible? How could it be done?
  6. Hello everyone, when I'm using Alfred to navigate files on a Server that have quite loading times and navigating into large files like layouts, Alfred starts to hang. Like it tries to preview the large Layout and doesn't respond for a couple of seconds until i can keep navigating and it hangs at the next file. This way Alfred becomes unusable for me. is there a way to deactivate the small preview in Alfred? That should fix the issue. Kind regards, Marcel Reuß
  7. Dear Community, I used to use spotlight's extension called 'flashlight' which I especially loved for it's image search that gives the results inside the spotlight window. Meaning if I quickly want to search for an image I could write "gi cat" and it would show me the cat images right away in the spotlight window. -> I did not have to launch the browser at all! Is there any workflow or functionality in Alfred that mimics this behaviour? Cheers!
  8. I am looking to make a workflow for searching an image API. I would live to feature live results as preview images in the alfred window. can this be done?
  9. Hello there, ran a search within the forum, nothing came up. I'd like to see, on the right half of Alfred, a preview (better if resizable) of the current selected file. I work with many .doc and .pdf files, and just to be able to glance within them without losing time at opening them would be priceless. Is it already doable (and I'm a lame user) or is it something that could be developed? Thanks in advance, Francesco
