  1. Hi, I try to build a workflow which helps me creating Jira tickets. To do so, I want to start with a list filter – activated by a keyword. The list filter contains entries where the argument value is the same as a snippet keyword. Using a snippet trigger doesn't serve my purpose as I want to select a snippet from the Alfred snippets. How can I achieve my goal? 🤔 Thanks in advance Sören
  2. I would like to be able to be able to create new Alfred snippets based on a CSV input. Are there any internal workflow tools that can facilitate this? Alternatively, are there any SDKs available to work with? I've looked at Applescript's Alfred dictionary and that was less than helpful.
  3. How do I get to use images/pdf etc. if possible to be used as snippets? Please explain to me like I'm 10 because I am amateur in these stuff and just recently started using Alfred Powerpack!! Thanks In Advance!!
  4. Hi Guys: In the snippet settting dialog it support nested other snippet ,but the compent "Write text File" do not support snippet, Can support this ?
  5. Hi team, I read the offical documents about the dynamic placeholder of snippet, and insert a {cursor} placeholder with auto expansion already enabled. However, the cursor cannot jump to the position as expected. Tried apps: TextEdit, Typora and others OS version: Monterey Macbook Pro : 2019 13 inch
  6. Hi Guys: This is my alfred sinppet search window , the left side of the window is the name of snippet, the right side of the window is the sinippet conent and the key word. because my snippet name is too long, and when I forgot the keyword of snippet, I mainly search by snippet name. When a certain one is selected, the hidden name is not prompted and the window size cannot be adjusted... Can the full name be displayed when one is selected?
  7. Hi, guys, I am a newbie to Alfred. I want to use Alfred Snippets to do some text expanding task. Like writing the markdown liquid headers in my blogs: --- layout:post title: 2-debugger_demo.md date: 2021-11-06 15:34:07 +08:00 tags: [] toc: true --- I use Typinator before, I can customize my snippet as following: --- layout:post title: {Scripts/FrontWindowTitle.applescript} date: {YYYY}-{MM}-{DD} {h024}:{m}:{s} {zn} tags: [] toc: true --- In above snippet, {YYYY}-{MM}-{DD} {h024}:{m}:{s} {zn} works like {date:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss Z} in Alfred snippet. What I cares is the property `title: {Scripts/FrontWindowTitle.applescript}`. Here this applescript just returns the frontmost window's title. At most occassions, this title is the document's name. That's what I want. The script file is as following, which is very easy: tell application "System Events" set frontApp to name of first application process whose frontmost is true end tell tell application frontApp set windowTitle to the name of the front window end tell return windowTitle Now I want to use Alfred Snippet & Snippet Trigger to replace Typinator, so I: - add a snippet in Alfred : --- layout:post title: {cursor} date: {date:yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss Z} tags: [] toc: true --- - and I add a workflow including a Snippet Trigger: Here, step 2 applescript update {query} to the window title, and copy to clipboard. I can type `\\title` to get the title of window correctly. But when I type `!post` which triggers the snippet, it generate: --- layout:post title: {snippet:\\title} date: 2021-11-06 15:48:08 +0800 tags: [] toc: true --- Apparently, it didn't call the Snippet Trigger. I don't know how to solve this problem, Please help me. Thanks!
  8. 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.
  9. I start with something in my clipboard. I use one of my snippets in Alfred that utilizes the {clipboard} keyword to take what's currently in my clipboard and injects it into the snippet text then pastes it. When I execute the snippet presumably, it copies the snippet into the system clipboard then pastes it into the foreground application. The issue I face is that my clipboard is now overwritten with the snippet text, not my original text. I'm not able to quickly reuse my snippet again, since the initial text is now different. When I execute the snippet in this state I get compounded recursive text pasted and ever expanding clipboard contents whet the snippet is used repeatedly. Example: I start with the text "watermelon" in my clipboard. My snippet is: "My favorite fruit is {clipboard}." When I execute the snippet, it's pasted as intended, but the clipboard now contains the text: "My favorite fruit is watermelon." When I execute the snippet again, the text pasted is: "My favorite fruit is My favorite fruit is watermelon.." I recommend an option (checkbox) be added to the bottom of the edit snippet screen that says, "Preserve initial clipboard contents" or "Do not write to clipboard" or "Prevent overwriting clipboard" or something to that effect, like so:
  10. Hi everyone, I use Alfred Snippets a lot. I have two languages on my keyboard - English and Russian, and all of my Snippets use English for their keywords. It works great when you're on the English keyboard - you type the proper keyword, and it automatically expands. But the annoying thing is that when you use another language (Russian in my case), you press the same keys (which becomes like a "muscle-memory" for you with time) - and nothing happens. So, for example, I have a group of Snippets with emojis, and one of them is`!thu` ("thumbs up", "👍"). When I'm on the Russian keyboard, it corresponds to the `!ерг` symbols. So, my suggestion would be - is it possible for Alfred to "guess" the Snippet if it was written on a different language? I've seen similar behavior in other apps - for example, JetBrains IDEs do that in their "Search everywhere" (see the attached image). Thank you! 🙏 PS: ( `🙏` was inserted as a Snippet 🙂 ) ( And, `🙂` too. Ok, I guess I have to stop it 🙂 )
  11. Environment I am using macOS big sur, 11.1 (20C69) and also the newest version Alfred 4.3.1. Problem snippet doesn't expand if there are characters before the keyword. For example: The snippets I using are \ue --> ü, \oe --> ö, etc to write German words. if I write \ue only, it will expand correctly, but when I write f\uer, it won't expand, and if there is a whitespace before the keyword \ue, it works. Others snippets also. Troubleshooting I have read the page https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/snippets/ and follow it to solve my problem. the only effect is to make the snippet working but still having the problem above. In fact, the snippets don't work completely before I did those things in the article. And also, Strangely, it doesn't work again for a while, when I writing this post. What I have done. Make sure that I have activated expansion in Alfred's preferences , set the snippets to auto expand and used the correct keyword Check cmd+v is still the way to paste. Check Accessibility for Alfred Kill Alfred completely and then remove Accessibility permission of Alfred and add again Test in several different app and make sure they are not using secure input to prevent Alfred to auto expand Change the option, simulated key event speed, I have tried all choices. check Others app which may be conflict with app. I don't use other apps which are about the clipboard and also text expansion.
  12. SO I just downloaded aText for snippet expansion and then realized I have Alfred - not a frequent users :) I tried activating the self expanding snippets... but crickets. Doesn't work anywhere. I have most updated version Cmd + V seems to be working and haven't changed any default functionality Alfred showing up in accessbility I'm on Mac Catalina Any help much appreciated. I walked through some other threads and help sites - but didn't manage to resolve.
  13. 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
  14. Hi all, I've recently collected several ASCII Art looks ಠ_ಠ from https://looks.wtf/ into an Alfred Snippet package. You can find it here on Github: https://github.com/cortinico/alfred-looks It contains more than 300 ASCII Art Faces such as (┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻ or (⌐■_■) and ╰(◕ヮ◕)つ¤=[]——— Here is in action: Hope you find it useful 【ツ】
  15. Currently for snippets and for the "Copy to Clipboard" output in workflows we can choose between "Plain Text" and "Richt Text". I would like to see a third option "Paste HTML". Typinator allows exactly this and the good thing is, that it allows me to easily write text including links with titles to Microsoft Teams. For example if the following text is pasted to teams as HTML, the text will use Team's default text format and will include a titled link: Try out <a href="https://www.alfredapp.com">Alfred</a> – a super cool productivity solution for macOS. The only workaround at the moment is to write the required text in Teams with the link, copy and paste it into the snippet and paste it as "Richt Text". Unfortunately this does not support generating dynamic links and further it produces links in Microsoft Teams which do have the standard text color instead of the expected link color.
  16. Is it possible to type a snippet via a hotkey combination? I have not thus far found a way to accomplish this task?
  17. I want to run a program every time I type something like ";today;" But is there any way right now to do a pattern matched snippet so that I could have a snippet using regex like ";.*;" ? Basically I want to make a date workflow where if I type in ";tomorrow;" it will replace that text with tomorrow's date. This seems like it would be a lot more seamless to use rather than having to cmd+space to bring up alfred, typing in the workflow keyword, and then typing in "tomorrow".
  18. Hi there, IMO adding a turn-on/off shortcut of Alfred Snippet would be extremely convenient... I know that we’re allowed to exclude some apps out of the Alfred Snippet. However, there are always some special cases that I wanna turn off the Alfred Snippet temporarily in the apps where I always prefer Alfred Snippet support.
  19. 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.
  20. 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".
  21. Hi there, is it possible to setup expansion like this: keyword: k@ snippet: k@mywebsite.com keyword: karthik@ snippet: karthik@outlook.com Cheers, Karthik
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. If searchsnippet and then want to change the content, how can I quickly reavel the selectedsnippet ? just likeReveal files in Finder?
