  1. Description Alfred 2 workflow to search and create notes in Evernote. Search Keywords ens to search in every note field ens @ to search in a selected notebook ens # to search notes with a selected tags You can use ent (search in titles only) or enr (search in reminders) or entodo (search to-do notes) or enrec (search notes updated within a week) or enu (search notes with a source URL) instead of ens. You can select multiple tags to fine tune your searching. Just add a second hash sign and select or type the tag e.g. ens #tag1 #tag2 :my query In addition, you can select a single notebook then tags too e.g. ent @notebook #tag1 #tag2 :my query Note that, if you want to select a notebook and/or tags, the query goes after the colon sign as seen above. Actions Return key to open the note Shift key to preview the note Option key to set a reminder Control key to paste the note text content to the top most application Function key to open the note URL Command key to append text (from clipboard, selected text or typed) or selected file(s) in Finder. After pressing the Command key a new Alfred window will be shown so you will be able to select the text source and the action: Return key will append without date Option key with append with current date Hint: You can also use the Command key to only add tags to a note. To do so, type or select a tag and don't type anything after the colon then select the source "Type a Note" e.g. enn #tag : Note that Alfred Fallback Search is also supported (you have to add it in Alfred 2 Preferences>Features>Default Results, then click Setup fallback results button). Create Keyword enn You can optionally type the note title or, for a more complex creation, follow the syntax below: @Notebook #tag1 #tag2 !reminder :Title @notebook: after typing @ a list of notebooks will be displayed then select one or type it; the default will be used if omitted #tags: after typing # a list of tags will be displayed then select one or type a new one (multiple tags are supported, type each one after a hash sign) !reminder: after typing an exclamation point a list of reminder suggestions will be displayed then select one or type a custom reminder such as in 4 days or 05/01/2014 or 05/01/2014 at 2:00 Title: at the end, after a colon (or the second colon if you are adding time in your reminder) Note that items of the syntax are optional, however the syntax has to end with a colon, with or without typing the note title e.g. #tag1 : Note Content Source From clipboard From selected text Typed directly in Alfred From Safari or Google Chrome URL From message(s) selected in Mail app From file(s) selected in Finder app: you can create one note with files or one note for each selected files. Alfred File Browser also supported. Type a Note also supports multiple lines and, in this case, the first line will be the title of the note e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 /n Line 3 Actions Return key: create a note Control Key: create a note and open it Command key: append text or file to a note Option key: append text to a note with current date How to Append Highlight one of the note content source e.g. From Clipboard Optionally type tags and a reminder e.g. #tag1 #tag2 !tomorrow hold command key and hit return key select a note from the list (search by title only) and hit return key Mail Message subject as the note title Message received date as the note creation date Message Link as the note source URL A short header (e.g. sender) A plain text version of the email content Preferences Bring Alfred and type the keyword enpref: Quick Look: select Card (Evernote default) or HTML (entire note content) Search wildcard: select Manual (type an asterisk after the query string) or Automatic (may be slower) Download Evernote 9 beta 2 Release date: 09 Aug 2016 Made in OS X 10.11.5 Requires Evernote 6 from evernote.com Requires Alfred 3 Download now For Alfred 2 Version 8.992 Release date: 20 Feb 2015 Made in OS X 10.10.2 Requires Evernote 6.06 from evernote.com Requires Alfred 2.6 or later Download now What's new? 9 beta 2: bugs fixed and Evernote API updated 9 beta 1: Alfred 3 support 8.991: Evernote 6.06 initial support 8.9: Yosemite beta and note templates support 8.7: interface bugs fixed 8.6: enn issue fixed Improved reminder time support e.g. Tomorrow at 2:00 Added support for tags that start with a hash sign e.g. #Home Added support for tags that start with an at sign e.g. @Work Added support for notebooks that start with an at sign e.g. @Notes Workflow should be faster in most of cases When appending from a search result now you can hold Option key to include current date Type a Note supports multiple lines (first line will be the title) e.g. enn Line 1 /n Line 2 New Keyword enl and its hotkey to load the last search query Added support for some of Alfred 2.3 new features Workflow version history here.
  2. With the addition of the "Web Bookmarks" feature now Alfred indexes Chrome Bookmarks, but it ignores bookmarklets (probably intended). However it would be very useful to me if I could actually search and trigger those excluded bookmarklets from Alfred, ideally in the frontmost browser. I know about some workflows approaching this (AlfredBookmarklet and Bookmarklets) but they requiere me to clone my (currently 50+) bookmarklets list, and AFAIK there's none backup/sync option from there. I would appreciate the extra commodity to do this from Alfred natively. Thank you, cheers! David.
  3. open file in 'library'

    How do I tell Alfred to look for a file in my 'Library' folder? There's a template for an app I'd like it to see but it resides in user---library---application support---app name Thanks
  4. I've created a new Workflow that allows you to search files on KickAssTorrents (KAT mirror configurable), select a desired file from Alfred context menu and automatically send the download action to a Transmission server. You can find the Workflow (based on a mix of scripts and workflows available) on Packal: http://www.packal.org/workflow/kat-search-transmission All you have to do is to configure it by settings the requested variables related to your Transmission server.
  5. For some reason Alfred (v3.3.2) can't find Xcode on my macOS Sierra MBP (10.12.5). I installed Xcode normally via the App Store to /Applications. I also tried to reset the Alfred search scopes, but that didn't help. As far as I can tell, Xcode is the only application that Alfred can't find (aside from the other developer tools in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Applications)
  6. Perform a Google Image search based on files on your computer. The images are uploaded to Google, and the list of search results is shown in your browser. Download Get the workflow from GitHub or Packal. Usage Google search supports PNG, JPG, GIF and BMP images only. This workflow is available as a File Action for any of these filetypes in Alfred. There is also a Hotkey to search based on the current Finder selection. If more than one image file is selected, only the first will be used. Licence This workflow is released under the MIT License.
  7. I've become a convert to the use of tags in macOS as a way of organizing files. I'm moving away from storing my files in folders and sub-folders since there's really no need when it's faster to use Alfred just to search for it. So I'm trying to build a simple search workflow that will allow me to search for files and folders by tag, but allow me to refine my search by adding more search terms. If i'm searching my PDFs for files tagged "javascript", say, I'd like to go be able to add more tags to narrow the search. It's not so bad when there are only ten files with the tag, but when yo have a hundred it becomes obvious that being able to refine the search by adding more terms is essential. I have a workflow that (like the built- in search) does a great job of searching for a single tag. How do I give it the extra functionality I want? Here's what I have... It's as simple as it gets. It is configured to search for tags and not title keywords: Anyone have any ideas?
  8. I almost didn't post this as a bug, because I'll leave it to Alfred's parents to decide. It's quite possible a "behavior subtlety" which has "evolved." But on the chance it was an unintended change: Build 875, Monday 25th September 2017, although this seems to have been a behavior since the new bookmark search behavior instead of something peculiar to this build. I'm still holding off on installing High Sierra until we get the all-clear with Adobe Illustrator and a few production tools. So this is in the current Sierra. For a long time I've organized browser bookmarks using full names and unique abbreviations in parentheses, e.g. National Hurricane Center (NHC) Storm Prediction Center (SPC) National Weather Service (NWS) Then I would recall such things using the abbreviation. "<Search box> NHC " or "<Search box> SPC" In earlier versions, the search would return links including the above examples. In the current version, the pattern does not return as a match unless I also type the first parenthesis. Now required: "<Search box> (NHC" or "<Search box> (SPC" I don't know that I have any objection to this, but I mention it in case it was unintended. Or perhaps the unlikely case where it has changed the way a script behaves. I certainly don't mind changing my scheme if the new behavior is preferred. :-) Thanks very much for the ongoing improvements and support of Alfred!
  9. I use Alfred for searching in iTunes Store but I can't find a custom search for Apple Music catalog, any tips?

  15. tl;dr: A new Alfred workflow to launch Zapier workflows from your keyboard. Ever wanted a quicker way to add data to your web apps? Say you get an email from a potential customer, and you want to add them as a new lead to your CRM. You have to copy their email address, open your CRM app in your browser, find your Lead page, open the Add Lead page, and finally paste in the info. Or if you wanted to find more details about a contact—perhaps to see what products they've bought from your store, or their last email to your support team, or the notes you wrote about your last call with them—you'd need to open a handful of other apps and search in each one manually. Personally, I wanted a simpler way to send template emails. I wanted to enter a contact's name in Alfred and have it find details about the contact in address book, then make a new draft email to them. That's why I made this Zapier for Alfred workflow. Zapier's to web apps what Alfred is to your Mac—it connects 750+ web apps (including Evernote, Salesforce, Shopify, Gmail, PayPal, and much more) so you can build workflows and automate tasks. And with Zapier for Alfred, you can start those workflows from your Mac's keyboard. Everyone will have a different use case, but the core workflow works the same. You'll make a Zapier workflow, and connect it to your Zapier for Alfred workflow in Alfred. Then, to run it, you'll enter some text into Alfred, and this workflow will send it to your Zap to kick off the online workflow you made. Then you can get the results back to your Mac in a Pushbullet notification, email, Dropbox file, or even an SMS message in Messages. Download Zapier for Alfred here, or check out our launch blog post for more details. Looking forward to hearing how you use Zapier with Alfred!
  16. Cribbing from my comment here, I'd love for search in Snippets preferences allow for even greater search sophistication, not just the present 'search whole string as entered' behaviour. At present, if I have a snippet with the contents Thanks for writing!, I can find it in Snippets preferences by searching Thanks for but not Thanks writing. I've got a lot of long letter-y bits in my Alfred snippets, and this behaviour (implicit-Boolean-AND-between-terms, rather than the current string-in-inverted-commas verbatim approach) would help me more easily find the particular snippet I'm looking for (often to edit or consult). ❤️
  17. Hi, I'm trying to move from TextExpander to Alfred Snippets and so far things are going pretty well. BUT, am I correct that when searching Snippets, Alfred is only looking at the name of the snippet and the keyword? As opposed to the actual snippet itself. It sure would be handy if the snippet text itself was also searched. Thanks!
  18. After a short discussion in this thread (with @PopSquirrel) I decided to create a workflow that allows me to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. I've included the full HOW TO USE below. Download TEMPLATE - File Search with Custom Actions from my GitHub Note: This workflow doesn't do anything "out of the box". It's a template that you can use to create your own customised actions. Examples of usage: Call a File Action workflow without go to the File Action menu. I use this with RenameAction (by @vitor) Use it with basically any workflow that takes a path as input. I use it this way with Open in Finder Tab (by @mix1009) Open a file with a specified app. I have Preview as default app for images, therefore I've added an Open File with Photoshop-action Get creative and comment below Screenshot from my configuration of the workflow: HOW TO USE This workflow allowes you to use custom actions (i.e. any workflow actions) on files and folders. The intention is to replace the settings that can be made under Advanced > Action Modifiers. This is a template workflow - you'll have to add your desired actions, modifers etcetera for the workflow to actually do anyting. Likewise you might want to change the keyword. Personally I use a the same as Alfreds default File Search, a single quote: ' The pink blocks gives you two different paths depedning on if you're actioning a file or folder. You might want to copy these to use with other modifiers as well.
  19. When I search for known files in Alfred, it fails to find them, as you can see in this image comparing Alfred's results with the Finder's results of a search for "yoga". The movies exist on an external drive, called /Volumes/2TB\ SSD\ encrypted/ I have added this volume to the Alfred preferences to be searched. I have reindexed the drive with the movies that Alfred does not see. What is going on? Thanks

  22. I'm surprised I don't see this addressed in the workflow forums or other repositories, but no luck on searches. I'm trying to set up a workflow for a Google search restricted to the past year. I know there is a URL that brings up a search bar with the past year option, but I'd like to get Alfred to do it with the search topic. I'm trying to set up a workflow for a Google search restricted to the past year only. I know there is a URL that brings up a search bar with the past year option, but I'd like to get Alfred to do it with the search topic . FYI, the URL is https://www.google.com/webhp?tbs=qdr:y&gws_rd=cr&ei=7t_RWKWGFcOw0gSlsrmwDg Thanks for the help. Tony
  23. I have published an Alfred Workflow that allows you to search various curated mind maps I have made. It also has an option to just search for study guide learning mind maps that provide the best resources one can take to learn the subject in a guided manner. In future, this will cover every topic one can learn and if you want to improve and change it, you can. Here is the GitHub repository of the workflow and here is the direct download of it. I hope you enjoy it. The cool thing is that if you dislike something or disagree with the way they are structured, you can propose the changes you want to make and thus everyone benefits.
  24. Searching video on alfred

    Hi, Could anyone explain if it is possible to search video file with Alfred? I had no luck so far. I went to Alfred preferences - advanced - added video file format, but no luck.
  25. Is there a way to export my custom web searches? I’ve set up a ton of them and need to wipe out the HDD.
