  1. Hello there, I'm using Ditto on windows, and one "feature" that I love about it is that, basically, as long as clipboard history is opened, pressing the hotkey again selects the next item in the list instead, like in Alfred, closing the overlay. Ditto: Ctrl+Shift+V - Clipboard History opens Ctrl+Shift+V - item #2 is selected, equivalent to down arrow Ctrl+Shift+V - item #3 is selected, equivalent to down arrow Alfred: Ctrl+Shift+V - Clipboard History opens Ctrl+Shift+V - Clipboard History closes Ctrl+Shift+V - Clipboard History opens Would it be possible to add a checkbox to change hotkey behaviour that way? Thank you.
  2. Hello, I don't use Alfred currently to manage my clipboard (I use the app Paste) for one single reason : In Paste, I can select multiple results (with the shift key) to paste all the results at the same time, which seems to be impossible in Alfred. Is there any solution to do that in Alfred, or is it planned in a future release ? This topic is about the clipboard, but I have exactly the same issue with Chrome bookmarks results in Alfred : I would like to be able to select more than one result to open the selection in several tabs (my workaround today is to create workflows, but it would be way more efficient to just be able to select multiple results for your search, like selecting multiple files in Finder). Anyway, thanks for this great app that I use everyday. Edit : Added a video
  3. Here is a really shoddy work-around that allows a hotkey to add the current OS X selection (like a file in Finder) to Alfred's buffer. Hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing could make something better. http://www.packal.org/workflow/buffer-finder This is in response to requests from this forum:
  4. The behaviour is quite strange when activating an action with a hotkey that use the selection in macOS and is active when Alfred is in focus... I want to create some actions that work with files when browsing in Alfred using the builtin browser and that are triggered by a hotkey. However, it seems that Alfred doesn't always restore the focused application correctly when the action goes back to Alfred using the "Browse in Alfred" object since the hotkey doesn't always work the second time. Here is a workflow to easily test what I'm describing with different situations that work or not: https://nofile.io/f/AZCX1X9vo6m/HotKey+Issue+In+Alfred.alfredworkflow In short, it always work when I specify to activate Alfred with an applescript or (strangely) when the action trigger a "Run Script" with Applescript / Python / Ruby / PHP / Javascript as language, but not with Bash / Perl / ZSH or by sending the path to browse using the "Arg and Vars" object...
  5. I have a Workflow that is triggered by the Hotkey: Ctrl+Alt+K The result of the Hotkey is to grab the current selection in the Finder and send that path as {query} into a Terminal command. Works great! However, what I'd like to do is invoke Alfred, type "kin", have the workflow appear, press Return and have the flow grab the current selection in the Finder etc. In other words, use a Keyword to grab the selection as {query}. I can't work out how to do that. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  6. Here is the use case. I am kind of fed up to have to select the url in the address bar, type /archive when I want to access the archive of one tumblr. So I thought let's create a workflow that would display the selected url in the address bar in Alfred and magically add "/archive" as a suffix. But I believe one only can add prefix. Any idea? PS: I know I can show the selected url in Alfred. But I still would have to type "/archive".
  7. I ran several tests with this workflow; here are my results: Cursor 'Left' with prefix [space]: [space] is prefixed to selection; on re-editing the hotkey, no [space] is found in 'Prefix' area Cursor 'Right' with prefix [space]: no [space] is prefixed to selection; raw selection returned; on re-editing hotkey, no [space] is found in 'Prefix' area Cursor 'Left' with prefix 'a': [space] and 'a' are prefixed to selection Cursor 'Right' with prefix 'a': 'a' is prefixed to selection; functions normally It seems that setting the Cursor to 'Left' automatically prefixes a space; this should be optional. Setting any 'Prefix' to [space] or [spaces] is ignored unless accompanied by other characters. This is probably by design, but no notice of this behavior is given; perhaps a syntax checker (similar to the one used by Alfred's URL textboxes) would be more intuitive? Alfred 2.0.6 (203) on OS X 10.8.4 (12E55). Replicated: yes
  8. As of Alfred 2.0.3: Create a hotkey trigger Select action `Pass through to workflow` Select argument `Selection in OS X` *or* `OS X Clipboard contents` Enter a text prefix When this hotkey is pressed, the prefix is ignored - it is not prepended to the OS X selection / clipboard content - only the selection / clipboard text is passed on to the next workflow step. I'm not sure these combinations were ever *meant* to work, but the UI currently allows them. I can see how these combinations are useful, though: For instance, you could use the prefix text to pass a flag to the next workflow step signal[l]ing that input was provided via hotkey (+selection/clipboard content).
  9. It would be much faster (and very cool ) to Shift-[up/down] to highlight several successive files at once instead of hitting Alt-up for each file. It would use the same shortcuts as those for a single file, except it acts like a file buffer; or all the highlighted files could be added to the buffer with a single Alt-up.
