  1. I've been using Alfred for years now, and its keyboard shortcut is burned into my muscle memory. Unfortunately, another app's shortcut is also burned into memory: CTRL+OPT+CMD+C, which I've used for years to launch an app called Calq... which was a 32 bit app, and as such, has gone the way of the dinosaur with the launch of MacOS 10.15. The good news is that Alfred's calculator functionality means I haven't lost any of the functionality of Calq, and it behaves pretty much exactly the same way. The bad news is that I always forget about it, and my habit of conjuring Calq leaves me confused when nothing happens upon firing the old, engrained shortcut. Sure, I could just get over it and eventually learn to forget the old Calq shortcut, but old habits die painfully hard. So, in short: Is there a way to assign a secondary shortcut to Alfred WITHOUT removing the original hotkey? If I could call it forth using EITHER shortcut combo, my life would be so much simpler...
  2. Hi there, is there some way to configure the keyboard shortcuts? Specifically, I want to change or get ride of the following shortcut: ⌥ ⌘ / Go to last browsed path in the File System Navigation Thanks!
  3. Background I often find myself landing deep within some website structure, e.g. http://www.thedomain.com/subpage/anothersubpage/imhere. I'd now like to press a keyboard shortcut to jump up to http://www.thedomain.com. Let's call it an ease-of-life feature. Problem I've tried for several hours to get this workflow going, but have realised that my programming skills are too weak/non-existent. Steps (according to my n00b mind) Get URL from active browser tab (this is the part that's running, thanks to input from this forum. It's using an Applescript) Analyse the URL and chop off everything after the third "/". (Using RegEx? I've seen similar things done with Ruby, but I know little to nothing about both topics) Replace current tab URL with "home URL", reload browser. (Not there yet...) Questions If feels wrong to use an Applescript and then send the output into a Ruby script for further processing. Is it possible to solve my problem using one language? I've got horrible problems getting how variables get set up in a script and how to send them on in the workflow. Especially with different languages. Is there a good place to learn about this? Any input to this problem is highly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Hi guys, I use snippets a lot in Alfred 3, and I badly need a quicker way to edit existing snippets. They're so awesome! Please see 1st screenshot: if Cmd+S on selected snippet would open it directly (2nd screenshot) within Alfred preferences, that would be a simple but fantastic improvement! I'm suggesting Cmd+S for this because it is very similar to the already existing Cmd+S shortcut which transforms a clipping from clipboard history into a new snippet. Basically hitting Cmd+S would mean: "create a new snippet or open it for editing if it already exists". That would feel very intuitive! After hitting Cmd+S, this window would popup to make you able to quickly update the existing snippet. Thanks! Vermeer
  5. After a few years away from MacOS, I finally bought myself a Mac once again. And the first application I installed was of course Alfred. Then I found a couple of extensions I made years ago for Alfred 1 and 2. This one is useful enough to share with you in my opinion. The extension let you set up two different keyboard shortcuts - one for closing every background window in the front application, and another one for quiting every application (in the dock) except the front application.

  6. Hi guys, I'm transitioning from LaunchBar and one thing it does, in my opinion, way better is the trigger for file and folder actions. While it might be good for some users to have a separate shortcut I would find it very intuitive to just press and hold the common Alfred Shortcut (whatever it is) to trigger the action menu. So I wouldn't have to remember a second shortcut. AND: LaunchBar also allows you to trigger actions for the currently active folder. So you are working in Finder, have a folder open and for example want to create a textfile or add it to the buffer etc. You just give the Finder window focus and press + hold the trigger shortcut. Currently you would have to navigate one directory up, reselect the folder you want and press the separate shortcut. Which is way more hassle and cognitive load. Best, Alex Addendum: This is also true for various other actions like hotkey triggers etc. This might be a deliberate decision of the team, but for my part I would find it much easier to remember just one shortcut and knowing that Alfred would come up when I press and and hold no matter if I've selected text or a folder.
  7. I have my clipboard history shortcut set to Cmd+Alt+V - this makes more sense to me than Cmd+Alt+C, because it is another way to paste, not copy (hence option added to Cmd+V paste shortcut). The only downside is that this clashes with Cmd+Alt+V used to move items in Finder. But I never use Clipboard History in Finder, is there a way to selectively disable it? (perhaps this is a feature suggestion) Any other workaround?
  8. Hey, folks! I need the keyboard shortcut alt+cmd+c to copy styles in Keynote and to open canvas options in Photoshop. Alfred (Powerpack) has taken over this combination globally to open the clipboard snippet window. How can I disable or modify this (and other) shortcuts in Alfred v2? I haven't found a help or forum topic on this, but that could be my bad searching. Thanks in advance for links to the right stuff and/or answers. - horncologne.
  9. Can someone help me with how I can create shortcuts for some formatting in Notes that the OS doesn't provide? For example, shortcut for bullet. I looked in Notes Help for available shortcuts, and bullet doesn't seem to have one Thanks!
  10. This feels like it should be simple, but can I create an Alfred workflow to add a keyboard shortcut for a menu item in an application. For example, in the same way you can go into System Preferences under App Shortcuts and you can create a keyboard shortcut for a specific application by giving it a menu item name, can you do the same in an Alfred workflow? I know this should be simple but I've done some searches and haven't found an example to do this.
  11. hey there, My goal is: type "ms" in Alfred to trigger the keyboard shortcut "cmd-shift-7" to invoke the help menu in the current app. "cmd-shift-7" is the standard keyboard shortcut to do that, but it is cumbersome to use. What I tried: keyword → RunNSAppleScript my AppleScript: on alfred_script(q) tell application "System Events" key code {26} using {command down, shift down} end tell end alfred_script This does work on most apps, but not all apps, despite the short cut "cmd-shift-7" works in those apps. What am I missing here?
  12. How can I set it so that I can launch Alfred with just the ctrl key?
  13. Can I turn off the function to copy the file name with shortcut of file search action? file search actionのショートカットで、ファイル名をコピーする機能をオフにできますか?
  14. I am having a consistent issue with the keyboard shortcut on macOS Sierra. I have bound the Clipboard History Shortcut to SHIFT + APPLE + V (I have used this with another app for years - it is basically hardwired now) However, after a reboot the shortcut does not work. The only way I have found to get it to work is to go to ADVANCED > SET SYNC FOLDER Then change the Sync folder It is saved in Google Drive synced using inSync (not Dropbox - I saw a thread saying this could be an issue) What i have been doing is changing it to a tmp folder, then changing it back. This drives me a little nuts - any help much appreciated
  15. I'd like to be able to pull up a cheat sheet of Alfred's shortcuts (adjusted for user preference modifications) similar to the examples shown below for Slack and Moom. Even better, it would be nice to be able to have it like Moom's cheat sheet which then allows for another action to follow similar to this previous feature request. So, you might hit a global shortcut to bring up Alfred's cheat sheet and then hit "N" to start a new e-mail. Part of the desire for this feature is that I'm not much of a poweruser mostly because I can never remember all of the Alfred shortcuts to do other things like Cmd-O.
  16. I use CMD+Space to activate Alfred. Works great (and the minimal space between the keys is perfect for my left thumb's damaged ligaments). However, when using Adobe Creative Cloud, I'd really like to reserve CMD+Space for standard Adobe zoom function. So, is there a way to selectively disable the Alfred keyboard shortcut for certain applications? Thanks!
  17. Hi, I'm using Alfred 3, and find it really useful for searching for files. Often when I've searched for a file I want to copy the path to the clipboard - for example, to use it in the terminal or copy into some code I'm writing. At the moment I have to press Right Arrow on the file in the results list, and then scroll down to the bottom of the list to find the 'Copy path to clipboard' option. Is there any way to make this quicker/easier? Ideally, I'd love to be able to change what Ctrl+Enter or Opt+Enter do on a file in the results list - but none of the options in the configuration are 'Copy path to clipboard'. Similarly, although I can see a list of 'Default Actions' in the Alfred preferences, I can't see a way to re-order these. Is there any way to do this? Cheers, Robin
  18. Hi, Just bought Alfred thinking I was gonna be able to (re)map basically anything from my hotkeys. I am trying to map a Mac OS X gesture to a combination hotkey of my keyboard and mouse. The standard hotkey for moving left or right a space is ^ + --> and ^ + <-- (also just swipe left or right with 3 fingers on a trackpad). How can I map this action to holding down the command button and scrolling left or right? Using a third party mouse, this is the best way I find to move desktops quickly without reaching for my macbook trackpad. THANKS
  19. It doesn't work that using Xcode Shortcut (Cmd + Opt + ] ) to move code line down undering alfred has being opened.
  20. Hi all. I have just started to use Alfred. In the past, I bind my spotlight shortcut to Cmd-Shift-Space. It works fine. However, the same shortcut cannot be set to Alfred 2 even after changing/disabling the shortcut in the Keyboard Shortcut System Preference. I have checked all other tabs and does not have a key binding of command shift space. Please help!
  21. Hi there, I'm a long time powerpack user, and honestly there's only one reason I bought the powerpack - for the clipboard and snippets. I use them heavily, but I'm very dissatisfied that it takes two keyboard shortcuts PLUS four clicks just to add a snippet. If i could get a keyboard shortcut into this view, i would be adding a lot more snippets. It seems to me, as the king of keyboard shorts, Alfred should eat it's own dogfood and add keyboard shortcuts into every view in it's own preferences, but it's particularly glaring that they don't have shortcuts into the place where you define shortcuts. Thank you, Alex
  22. Hello Alfred's Baby Daddy, I'm running Alfred v2 on a late 2011 MacBook Pro, running on Yosemite (10.10.5). I have used Alfred for years without a hitch, and I love this app. In fact, I had no idea just how much I use and rely on this app until it broke for me. However, my problem began when I updated to the latest version of Alfred, v2.7.2 (407). Upon my first reboot after installing the latest version of Alfred, and every startup since, my shortcut to pull up the Alfred search window no longer works. I use Apple key+SPACE to invoke Alfred, but this does not work anymore. This is regardless of focus, i.e. when I click out of my current program to the desktop and try the shortcut, nothing happens. When I do the same thing within an app, same thing: nothing happens. Before today, I've been limping along by opening up the Alfred preferences and then quitting same--without making any changes to preferences--and then trying the shortcut again. Amazingly, it would work once more. I've done this 10-15 times, and while a hassle, I put up with it. Today even this move will not work. I have tried setting the shortcut to a different combination, saving the preferences, and rebooting--same problem with no change. My next thing to try will be an uninstall and reinstall (I hope I don't lose my PowerPack license in the process!). Before I do so, I checked this forum and found no similar complaint. So, I decided to open this report. Thanks!
  23. I've released a new version of Text Snippets changed from Text Shortcut. Now Text Snippets can handle snippets and terminal commands. https://github.com/rtoshiro/alfred-workflows-textshortcut
  24. With workflows, I can add multiple triggers to a single action. So, for example, I can launch an app using two different keyboard shortcuts. With Clipboard History/Snippets, the keyboard shortcut choice is sort of baked into Alfred in the "Viewer Hotkey" field under Clipboard. Is it possible to assign a second keyboard shortcut to that action? Thanks, Pat
  25. If you use more than one AppleID in iTunes App Store or Mac App Store, this is the extension for you. All you have to do is to press a keyboard shortcut when you want to switch account, this brings up a dialog window with all your AppleID's listed. Then you choose the account you would like to log in to, and press enter. Only works on Mac OS X with English and Norwegian language - but it also work in both iTunes and Mac App Store! If you want your OS language supported, give me a hint.. Installation For AccountChanger to funtion like supposed to, you have to do some preparations first. 1. Download and mount http://cl.ly/YKQF'>AccountChanger.zip 2. Run the applescript application with the name "Run this first!!!" This Applescript will Install and launch UsableKeychainScripting (needed to use Applescript with Keychain Access after Mac OS 10.7), and add it to the startup items. 3. Open Keychain Access (/Applications/Utilities/) 4a. Make a new keychain by pressing the following keyboard shortcut: Command + Alt + N 4b. Give the keychain a master password and remember it. 4c. Give the new keychain the name 'Applescript', and drag it to the top of the listed keychains, in the upper left corner of the window (like in the screenshot below). 5. For each AppleID you want to use, make one 'New password item' (Command+N). Each of the entries must be named 'eple'. In the 'Account' field, enter your AppleID (email address). And of course - the password in the password field. 6. Add the Alfred workflow from the mounted image 'AccountChanger.dmg', and add a keyboard shortcut. Congratulations! The workflow should work now... My Twitter account - @macgeeky
