  1. Hi there, is it possible to setup expansion like this: keyword: k@ snippet: k@mywebsite.com keyword: karthik@ snippet: karthik@outlook.com Cheers, Karthik
  2. I bought Alfred 3 powerback. I have 1250 snippets that used to run on Windows software called ShortKeys. I exported my snippets as text file (only option). i could not bring to Alfred 3. There is no way to import them to Alfred 3 from text file. I will put all of them in one snippet as text. I will just search a keyword when i need info about something. However, there is no option to search within snippet. We really want the ability to search inside snippet for keywords. In my case, i have 6k lines notes in text. I will create a snippet and paste those notes. Then, when i need something, i will open this specific snippet and search inside it. Please, Please add this feature.
  3. I am trying to create a snippet that would produce the following: date=June 2016 where the date is automatically generated. How do I finish this? date={date:????} Thanks.
  4. I would like to suggest one of these two features: 1. Multiple Keywords for Snippets and Workflows Just as the headline says: Multiple keywords for snippets and workflows would be a nice possibility to defeat our habits when it means to finding the right word to access the wished snippet or workflow. I think we all already had the situation where we tried 3 or 4 keywords and then gived up to look how that damn keyword for the workflow was called. If we could add more keywords to snippets and workflows, it would make the bad times, less bad. 2. Option to turn on/off the case sensitive on Keywords Please add an option to turn this damn case sensitive keyword detection off. Yes, it is more precise if I say you only have to toggle when I write it exactly like "tHiS". But sometimes it is just annoying that the keyword auto insertion don't toggles because you wrote on letter in the wrong case. But talk about an option here, like a check-dialog-field in the snippet-editor. Not all keywords should are able to ignore case sensitive, the user should exactly set what he wonts to trigger on case sensitive and what, without. Example: If I would make a Internet-Signature-Snippet for fourms the signature for the Internet would be've the keyword-string "signet". Sounds good, but if the case sensitive option would be just a global one, instead for each keyword for itself. The problem would be that "Signet" is already a word in my language what I wouldn't like to trigger an event when starting with a capittal letter.
  5. Hello! New Alfred user here, and I really enjoy it so far. I'm running into a little quirk and I can't find a solution for it. If I use the snippet function and then shortly after attempt to paste the last thing I copied to my clipboard, my snippet is pasted again. I read on this forum about there possibly being a set delay time for the snippet to be "wiped" from the clipboard, but I have tried waiting even several minutes, but my snippet is still pasted instead of what I last copied to my clipboard. Are there some settings I should check? Or could this be a bug? Thanks in advance for the help.
  6. If searchsnippet and then want to change the content, how can I quickly reavel the selectedsnippet ? just likeReveal files in Finder?
  7. v3.6 [903] - High Sierra 10.13.3 Steps to reproduce: - trigger the clipboard viewer - choose an entry then Cmd+S to create a snippet from this entry - give the snippet a name, then save The snippet you just supposedly created is nowhere to be found :-/
  8. Ever since the latest 3.6 update, the sorting of my snippets has been changed to reflect recently used, even after searching for a snippet. I have 4 emails that I like to have on hand, and I've gotten used to be being able to type "em" then cmd+[1-4] depending on which email I want to use. All of the names and keywords are the same, so what can I do to get them back in my original order?
  9. 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
  10. In Alfred 3 there are automatically expanded snippets by keywords. They are awesome and work almost flawlessly after enabling the appropriate accessibility feature. As I understand, as you already have the code for detecting those keywords (I guess, by catching the consecutive key presses?), it shouldn't be hard to allowing using those keywords to trigger workflow actions. This would allow us to call workflows from any textual input. So, instead of at first calling Alfred or a specific command here, you could just write the keyword for this command and alfred would either call the action or present you with the alfred input window for your workflow. After calling the workflow the keyword should be deleted from the input, and you should have a way to replace it with the workflow's result. That's the basic what could be done with catching the keywords, but what would be even cooler — catching non-static keywords by regexps. Instead of a static keyword like `foobar`, you could set it to `foo(\d+)bar`, for example, and it would call the workflow as soon as you'd write somewhere `foo1bar`, `foo3434bar` etc., with the variable parts of the regex match as input you could use in your workflow. This would open a lot of possibilities for workflow authors.
  11. I want to run an Alfred command and it generate a new email for me, including text that I've already saved in a snippet. I run a martial arts club and when we get new members trying out I need to send them all the new joiner information after the session. So, the content is always the same, and the people are never in my contacts. I have got it working using a workflow as follows, which uses my snippet "mawelcome" to populate the body of the email: A keyword run a Script /usr/bin/oascript tell application "AirMail 3" set newMail to make new outgoing message with properties {subject: "Joining our martial arts club", sender:"my.email@myemail.com"} compose newMail activate end tell tell application "System Events" keystroke "mawelcome" end tell My question: is there a better way? I couldn't find anything that really described doing this, but I can imagine a lot of people want to do it, which made me think I was missing something obvious to approach it another way! Thank you!
  12. I have a snippet that I need to replace several locations with variable text each time I paste it. Is there a way to have cursor placed initially, then "tab" to the next location to replace a placeholder? Example, Title {placeholder1} URL: {placeholder2} JOB: - {placeholder3} Where each successive tab would jump to placeholder and highlight it for replacement? Thank you!
  13. Currently a search for github in snippet viewer/clipboard history won't find my snippet named Issue (GitHub) as I'd expect… was tempted to file this as a bug, but I think it's just Alfred's search being naïve/speedy and using whitespace as word boundaries? Kinda also relates to the search improvement suggestions over here:
  14. Is there any way to change the Snippet Sound? With all these interesting Alfred sounds, it would be a shame if we couldn't use them with Snippets.
  15. Snippet trigger objects in workflow seem to always being registered for expansion even if the workflow is not set as Enabled since they work all the time (the workflow is activated/run when writing the Snippet keyword if the workflow is enabled or not). Using: Alfred 3.5 Pre-Release - Build 871 ------------------ After some testing, Alfred seems to register/unregister the snippets at startup. I mean, if I disable a workflow that have a snippet trigger in it, the workflow will keep working until I restart Alfred. Same thing if I want to enable a workflow, if I enable a workflow that was disabled, I need to restart Alfred to really enable it.
  16. Hi! Right now, if I copied something to the clipboard and I want it not to expire, I have to go into the snippets preferences, add a new snippet etc. I'd like Alfred to have a predefined "Pinned" snippets list and to be able to add items to it by using a keyword/shortcut on a selected item in the clipboard history. Of course these items would have no "keyword".
  17. Any way to have a cursor appear in the middle of a snippet after executing? For example: snippet would = "Some text here {cursor would end up here} some more text here" after you call it. Hoping for something similar to how Sublime Text does it with the $1
  18. 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!
  19. I've got a snippet defined as: "ds," = "{date:yyyy-MM-dd' '}" I like to prepend dates to filenames and so when I'm in the SaveAs dialog of the Atom Editor, for instance, and I type my trigger, I just get a low-freq buzz (indicating snippet failure, I'm guessing). The snippets work as designed in the actual text of a file. Has anyone else run into this, or more to the point, does someone have a solution? TIA!
  20. Is there a way to use the snippet workflow trigger mentioned here: https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/triggers/snippet/ to fill multiple {query} fields with different text? I would like to be able to be prompted to fill multiple "fill-in" fields with different text. Is that possible?
  21. I've just migrated all my TextExpander snippets to Alfred (woot!). Would it be possible for snippets to expand within Alfred's search bar? For example, if I want to search for items with today's date in the title, I want to be able to type 'ddate' into the search, and watch that phrase be replaced with the actual, current date. I haven't found a way to do this. Am I missing something? Another example is that I have many snippets that are very long URLs. Using TextExpander, I could type the four or five letter snippet of a particular URLs into Alfred, and it would expand and then take me to that page. See what I mean? If I'm thinking about this the wrong way because there's a better method, just say the word. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I am a avid MS OneNote user. Unfortunately, I am unable to use Alfred Snippets in OneNote when "Restore clipboard contents" is checked. When that option is checked, the snippets do not create/expand, it only pastes the previous copied text into OneNote. When "Restore clipboard contents" is unchecked the snippets work properly. Out of all the programs I use, OneNote is the only program that displays this type of behavior with snippet expansion. I have tried multiple different settings and variations of the "simulated key event" and "Restore After" settings. If "Restore clipboard contents" is checked and applied the for either "After Auto Expansion" and or "After Snippets Veiwer or Keyword" the snippets are not created/expands, only the contents of the clipboard are pasted into OneNote. Info: Alfred 3.4.1 Build 860 Mac OS 10.12.5 OneNote Fast Build Version 15.37 (170718) Please let me know if you need any additional information or would like me try any additional troubleshooting steps.
  23. When creating a workflow using the new Snippet node, it's not possible to connect to an Inputs node if this last one is created using a secondary click on the canvas. I mean, it's working great when dragging the outlet of the Snippet node and releasing the mouse (the popup menu allow to insert an Input node and this node is automatically connected), but it's not working when we try to connect to an Input node that is already created on the canvas. Here in the attachment you can see that the inlet of the Input nodes doesn't appear while dragging the wire for connection.
  24. A lot of times when I use the snippet functionality in Chrome the first letter in the keyword stays up after the snippet expands. I've adjusted all the tweaking settings and the issue has persisted. I made sure that the Alfred helper has accessibility permissions and I have re-installed Alfred as well as Chrome. See attached GIF for the behavior. while the GIF shows it happening at the top of the text box, it also happens after I have already been typing in the middle of the paragraph.
  25. Would be great to have a keyword that brought up a box of options to choose from. For example: Keyword - email - name@gmail.com - name2@gmail.com - name.last_name@work.com
