  1. I have setting system text replacement, like qq. system will replace with number 123456789. I hava setting a workflow and key word set as qq. when I trigger with qq in alfred's input , text will replace,It's very inconvenient unless I click esc. So I hope alfred can support option to disable system text replacement First of all, the reason for using system text replacement is that it does not require some prefixes, which is more convenient
  2. Given my recent discussion about formatting issues with RTF Snippets, it occurred to me that Markdown-formatted snippets could be really useful. There are some existing Markdown Workflows for Alfred like MarkdownTransform and Alfred Markdown Notes and so while I might attempt to create a Nested Snippets Workflow that allows storing snippets in Markdown and then passing them through a Markdown parser before pasting the results, being able to specify Markdown as another properly support snippet format in Alfred could be very handy.
  3. I don't think this is working as intended, but Rich Text Formatted snippets are impossible to read when Dark Mode is turned on:
  4. With the new features in Alfred Snippets, I'm considering consolidating all my snippets from aText into Alfred. One feature that I use often in aText is the ability to embed a snippet inside another snippet expansion. This allows me to treat smaller snippets as variables that can be reused in other larger snippets. Is this possible with Alfred's Snippets?
  5. Is there any way to import over my TextExpander snippets into Alfred v3? I found this, but Github is a bit beyond me, no idea how to get started.
  6. Alfred trims trailing spaces and tabs in keyword. Fix it please.
  7. 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", "๐Ÿ‘"). When I'm on the Russian keyboard, it corresponds to the `!ะตั€ะณ` 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! ๐Ÿ™ PS: ( `๐Ÿ™` was inserted as a Snippet ๐Ÿ™‚ ) ( And, `๐Ÿ™‚` too. Ok, I guess I have to stop it ๐Ÿ™‚ )
  8. I was hoping to use Alfred's snippets to store and edit 'canned responses' across various email accounts I manage. It works beautifully for text, but any hyperlinks are dropped. That is, "click <a href='location'>here</a> for help" becomes "click here for help" I know in Gmail that copy/paste retains hyperlink data, but any copy/paste into a text editor will drop the hyperlinks (I assume this has to do with meta-something). I'm not even sure if the TextExpander tools feature something like this, but support for rich html snippets would be amazing!
  9. 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.
  10. I'd like to request two improvements to Snippet management: The ability to drag a snippet from one Snippet Collection to another The ability to change a snippet's Collection without being taken to view that snippet in the new collection. I'm currently in the process of reorganizing a couple dozen snippets and it's HIGHLY inefficient to try to move these things between collections.
  11. 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
  12. There have been a few threads on quickly editing snippets and I just wanted to add a suggestion to the stack since I don't use Alfred's clipboard viewer... specifically, when I'm viewing a snippet in Alfred, I would expect to press option to open the snippet editor. Instead, option previews the snippets and allows me to paste it, but that's the same action if I were to action (hit enter on) the snippet. I like @Vero's trick to use "?[snippet]" to quickly edit a snippet, but I'm not sure I would have ever discovered that if I hadn't gone searching in the forum first...
  13. I know people have requested image support in the clipboard history feature in Alfred. That would be great, but I would really like to see support for maintaining text formatting (rich text) in the snippets and clipboard history. As of now all text is converted into plain text in the history and snippets. It would great if formatting were not lost.
  14. What I was trying to do: To work around the problem snippet collections are not linked to specific apps (see this feature request I made), I instead followed this tutorial to create a workflow snippet for Visual Studio Code (the specific app I want the snippet to auto-expand in). How to replicate the bug: Settings in "features" -> "snippets": "Automatically expand snippet by keywords" is checked in "Auto Expansion Options" -> "Options" add VSCode as an app in "Don't expand snippets in the following code:" Add a snippet workflow like the following: type "\code" in VSCode the snippet does not auto expand NOTE However, if I remove VSCode in "features" -> "snippets"the auto expansion works Alfred version & build number 4.2.1 [1187] macOS version MacOS Catalina 10.15.6
  15. I do a lot of screencasting and screen sharing on Zoom, and I also use Alfred's Snippets feature, which displays the expanded text on screen when it's invoked. I'm afraid I will someday soon expose some sensitive data on my screen when I use snippets while sharing. I'd really like the ability to mark certain snippets as "hidden" so they do not display like the example below. I think this would greatly enhance the security of the data we store in Snippets. Thanks for considering.
  16. Snippet function worked couples of days ago (4.2.0), this issue very possible due to new version released (4.2.1 in 13th November) Mac Version: $ sw_vers ProductName: macOS ProductVersion: 11.0.1 BuildVersion: 20B29 Alfred Version: Alfred 4.2.1 [1187] Permission check: Example: Result: https://github.com/marslo/marslo-test/blob/issues/screenshots/alfred/snippets-not-work-mac-11.0.1.gif (upload limitation for accessory size)
  17. Or a team of people who individually use Alfred app, is it possible to make the snippets shareable between us? For example, John is the source of all the snippets, he clicks export, and each of us clicks import of his export file on each of our computers. Thank you very much.
  18. It'll be great useful if we can use snippet groups only when some specific applications activated.
  19. Hi there, I really wanted to be able to use :ok_hand: as a shortcut for ๐Ÿ‘Œ, but the emoji pack didn't support these new emojis... So I made my own! There are more than 400 emojis that were added, it still works the same And I'll keep updating it for the foreseeable future. Download link: https://github.com/paris-ci/Alfred-Emoji-Pack-Update/raw/master/snippets/Emoji Pack Update.alfredsnippets Code used to generate the pack: https://github.com/paris-ci/Alfred-Emoji-Pack-Update It's basically the same thing as before, so here is the installation tutorial : http://joelcalifa.com/blog/alfred-emoji-snippet-pack/ (Don't use the download link there, it's still the old version, I am not the original author)
  20. I'd like to design a workflow where I use a keyword to trigger opening the Alfred 'Snippets' preferences. Ideally it would even open a specific Snippet 'Collection'. Thoughts? Use-case: I use a Snippet Collection called 'Emoji Pack', but I often search for emojis by different keywords than what is originally labeled in the emoji pack, so I find myself often going in and adding extra keywords to certain emojis that I refer to by non-standard names. By creating a custom workflow for this, I can do this much faster.
  21. Hello all, First, thanks for alfred, this is a time saver for me. I use the snippets to write bits of text that I use all the time like email introduction, chat introduction etc. I rely very heavily on this as it saves a lot of time. I would love to have the ability to have a keyword for a snippet, like 'emailopening' that would paste a text from a pool of texts. This would allow me to have variation in my opening messages and make me look less like a robot. This is really obvious in chat conversation for example. Is this something that could eventually come ? I am pretty sure I could make this in a workflow but it would break the snippet workflow/shortcut. Thanks, Thomas
  22. I use snippets very heavily at work to store commonly used URLs and phrases that I include in emails, slack, etc. I share a collection with coworkers of our most commonly used links. One of the tools I use, Docsend allows me to generate custom links that have tracking embedded. They don't have an API so I need to create the link through my web browser every time. I'd like to have a collection of our most commonly used items in Docsend so a snippet collection is perfect, but I'm looking for a way to automatically open the link in the browser. Sort of like holding down the control key when clicking enter, but I'd like it to resolve the URL from my snippet. Is there any way to do this or something similar? I know I can use a lot of custom web searches, but this wouldn't be something I can share with my larger team.
  23. Hi all, I've recently collected several ASCII Art looks เฒ _เฒ  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 (โ”›โ—‰ะ”โ—‰)โ”›ๅฝกโ”ปโ”โ”ป or (โŒโ– _โ– ) and โ•ฐ(โ—•ใƒฎโ—•)ใคยค=[]โ€”โ€”โ€” Here is in action: Hope you find it useful ใ€ใƒ„ใ€‘
  24. Hi All, Alfred newbie here. I'm intrigued by snippets. I hope I can accelerate greatly using them. One thing that I couldn't see how to do, though: indicate where the cursor should land once pasted. For example, let's say I make the snippet 'ยงproc' to expand to: function () { } I'd like the cursor to be just before the (), so that I can type the function name and move on from there. I have to move the mouse and click before the (), or use the arrow keys to get me there. It'd be great if there were a placeholder to indicate where the cursor should end up: function {cursor}() { } ...or some such. I looked in the documentation, but I couldn't find the answer. Can anyone point me to where this is documented? -Ken
  25. Hi guys, the new snippets auto expansion is nice. Thanks for such a great update! Anyway is it possible to set different format for {date} and {time} ?
