2. ## Generate snippets from a spreadsheet

Hi everyone! I built something and wanted to let you know I wanted to make some snippets for HTML entities (I know there are some databases available, but I wanted to customise some of the keywords to my own liking). I searched online for something that would let me maintain a spreadsheet and convert that into the .alfredsnippet format. Found a few Python scripts but I wanted something simpler, so I built a quick in-browser that lets you copy a bunch of spreadsheet cells (copied cells are in TSV format), paste it into a big ol' textarea, and it'll generate/download the .alfredsnippets file for you The tool itself is here: https://rawgit.com/dhoulb/alfred-snippet-generator/master/index.html The source code etc is here if you're that kinda gal: https://github.com/dhoulb/alfred-snippet-generator Let me know if you find it useful. Should make it tonnes easier to build/maintain large sets of snippets. I'm thinking a full set of Emoji snippets (should be easy enough to pull from this database), and a full set of character entity characters. In addition because TextExpander can export as CSV, this will make it easy to convert those to Alfred instead (no need to run a script, just copy/paste). Dave
3. ## LaTeX Snippets

So I recently wants to make a complete LaTeX Snippet auto completion by Alfred. So I stole some codes and put it together. The file is hosted on GitHub right now: The LaTeX Subsitutions.plist comes from LaTeXSubstitutionPlist. The original Python script comes from alfred-snippets, and I modified it to fit my need. Use it as normal LaTeX symbols but adding a backslash \ to complete the shortcut to prevent conflicts. For example: \alpha\ expands to α The download link is below: File Link
4. ## Change the Snippet Expansion Sound

It would be great if one could change the snippet expansion sound. The current sound always sounds like an error to me.
5. ## Clipboard - Ability to paste into virtual machine, like VirtualBox

I use the clipboard and snippets a lot for work, and we often test our websites in different Operating Systems and Browsers by means of VirtualBox. I use automatically expanding snippets to save time, but I noticed the snippets and the clipboard do not work inside of VirtualBox. I've used a program called aText (https://www.trankynam.com/atext/), which is able to paste into VirtualBox, so I believe it's possible.
6. ## Auto Text-Expansion in Adobe CC Applications

I know this issue has been brought up on the Alfred forums previously with no resolution. Has anyone managed to find a way to have snippets automatically expand in Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 and Adobe InDesign CC 2017? I am currently using MacOS High Sierra. Text expansion is working in Adobe Photoshop CC 2017. I am evaluating whether I can use Alfred as a replacement for Text Expander, which does perform snippet expansion correctly in these applications. I am, of course, a Powerpack user.
7. ## Snippet with multiple cursors

It would be create to create snippets with multiple cursor locations. Use case: I want to create a snippet with the same value in multiple locations. Example 1: console.log('======================> {cursor}', {cursor}); Example 2: Hello {cusor}, You're invited to the following event. I look forward to hearing from you {cursor}
8. ## (Even more) improvements to Snippets preferences search

Cribbing from my comment here, I'd love for search in Snippets preferences allow for even greater search sophistication, not just the present 'search whole string as entered' behaviour. At present, if I have a snippet with the contents Thanks for writing!, I can find it in Snippets preferences by searching Thanks for but not Thanks writing. I've got a lot of long letter-y bits in my Alfred snippets, and this behaviour (implicit-Boolean-AND-between-terms, rather than the current string-in-inverted-commas verbatim approach) would help me more easily find the particular snippet I'm looking for (often to edit or consult). ❤️
9. ## Snippet does not auto-expand if Caps Lock is toggled [Fixed 3.5 b867 pre-release]

Snippet: Expected behavior: \* should be auto-expanded to ☆ regardless of caps lock state. What happens: If caps lock is toggled, the text will not auto-expand, despite having no characters that are changed by the caps lock toggle. System Details: Alfred v3.4.1 [860] macOS Sierra, Version 10.12.5 (16F2073)
10. ## Can Snippets move between folders?

Fairly rookie post. I could not find the answer. I hope I didn't miss the obvious. Is there a way to move snippets between folders? I started one to correct my most common DOuble CAps and added a few others. (BTW-Alfred is FANTASTIC! at correcting typos--in any application. I love it.) Now my double cap list is growing fairly quickly and will be huge soon. I want to start a new folder with the non double cap snippets. Do I have to start from scratch or is there a way to move them? This place is so on the ball I was hoping it would work out.
11. ## Super- and Subscripts for snippets

I would love it if Alfred would add the possibility to add sub and superscripts to snippets. This could come in handy for writing down mathematical or chemical formulas. I use Alfred for snippets mostly and this would improve my experience significantly. ( I looked in the forums for this feature but I didn't find if, sorry if I didn't look well enough)
12. ## Snippet Keyword Validation

Alfred 3.4.1 Build 860, Friday 21st July 2017 macOS Sierra Version 10.12.6 When trying to create snippets if the first few characters of your snippet have been used before you are blocked from creating a snippet example: trying to create a snippet for the prime and double prime characters if we create the prime snippet using the keyword: !prime then when trying to create a snippet for the double prime you are blocked from using i.e. !primed as soon as you type !prime in the keyword field the text turns red and no matter what you type after that string. This is also true for shorter strings e.g. if you've used !dd as a keyword you cannot use !ddd or any other combination that starts with !dd
13. ## One keyword for multiple snippets?

One feature that I like in aText, my current text expander app, is the option to use the same keyword for multiple snippets. For example, I use ',mail' for all of my email addresses. Whenever I enter it, a small window pops up and I'm able to key down and up and hit enter to select which email address I want to use (Here is a GIF of that: http://tinyurl.com/y8k2ur7y). This saves me creating a unique keyword for each email address and try to remember it when I need to use them. I don't believe Alfred, even with the latest v.3.4.1 update, has that feature. Am I mistaken? Perhaps there is a neat way to implement this function that I'm not aware of?
14. ## Snippets and input cursor

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 '§proc' 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
15. ## Snippet expansion misbehaves in NetBeans [issue with Java, not Alfred]

I hate to post bug reports, because it makes me sound dissatisfied. However, I am not. I absolutely adore Alfred. There, I said it! But I thought it worth to report this: Expansion works correctly until text has been copied within NetBeans After that, the keyword expands into the copied text instead of the desired snippet So, to put it as an example I open NetBeans I place my cursor in a document I type my keyword The keyword expands and my snippet appears Good I then copy something from the document I’m working on, say “$my_lovely_variable = 3;” I type my keyword The keywords expands to say “$my_lovely_variable = 3;” instead of my snippet Not so good I don’t know if NetBeans being a Java application is relevant to this issue, and I haven’t got any other Java apps lying about to test with. Everything is the latest build: Alfred 3.4, Build 850, Monday 19th June 2017 OSX 10.12.5 (16F73) NetBeans IDE 8.1 (Build 201510222201) Java version 8 Update 131
16. ## Time Stamp Workflow

I just added workflow snippets to my Time Stamp Workflow and noticed that I had never shared it. So, here it is. You can use "ts:stamp" to list the pre-defined date/time stamp format and paste the current date/time into the top application. Or, you can use the "ts:build" to build your own date/time stamp to add to the list. I also have several predefined snippets: ;tsl = the current date/time using the last select date/time stamp. ;ed = the current date/time in the mm/dd/yyyy format. ;dow = the current day of the week. ;nsu - the next Sunday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nmo - the next Monday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;ntu - the next Tuesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nwe - the next Wednesday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nth - the next Thursday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nfr - the next Friday date using the last select date/time stamp. ;nsa - the next Saturday date using the last select date/time stamp.

17. ## Nested Snippets (snippets within snippets)

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?
18. ## Mid String Expansion only for a group of snippets

Hello, I would normally not want to expand my snippets in midstring. However, for for certain expansions, such as a; => ä o; => ö Only the special characters, I would like to expand in midstring. Currently I see the option only to enable mid string globally. It would be very helpful if it can be configured for separate group of snippets.
19. ## Snippets: option to trigger expansion only after space,tab,newline

I really like the idea of Alfred managing my text snippets (I'm using a separate app for that so far). However, when trying to migrate, I found that Alfred has no option to expand snippets only when typed as a entire word, i.e. trigger the expansion only after the snippet keyword has been terminated by a space or newline or tab. That's a feature available in most text expanding utilities I know, and if Alfred had it too, that would be great! For now, I can include a space in the keyword, which is the most common case. Entering a tab or newline in the keyword field does not work (obviously).
20. ## Input Fields for Snippet Expansion

Hi alfredders I love Alfred and struggle to find anything wrong with it. It has managed to substitute lots of tiny utility apps (weather, calculator, clipboard manager... Just to name the first that come to mind). For my line of work I type frequently the same text over and over and over. I've been using Typinator in the past and love its Input Field options (see attached screenshots). I was wondering if there was something similar in development for future version of Alfred or - EVEN BETTER - if a workflow already exists to achieve a similar result. In short I'd like to have the ability to expand a snippet with multiple choice to pick from (either single option or multiple choice, doesn't matter really). Or should i simply accept the idea that this is not achievable for the time being/future? I'm not a developer: I'm in the other side of the spectrum (read Designer) so not sure what I'm talking about here Thanks in advance everyone and forgive me if this was not the right section to post this!
21. ## Snippets auto-expanded issues in Adobe Illustrator

Hello, Since Adobe Illustrator was updated to CC 2017, snippets won't auto-expanded. There's no problem in other applications, issues only in Adobe. From 10 times it works 1 time. I have tried to check Help and Troubleshooting articles, but no luck. The problem is probably in Adobe, on the old version everything worked. Please help resolve the problem. Thanks in advance. Alfred v3.4 [850] Adobe Illustrator CC 21.1.0 OS X El Capitan 10.11.6
22. ## Add regex to snippet recognition

Keyboard maestro has a basic implementation for regex snippets and I was thinking it might be cool for Alfred to take it on. If I could be in whatever text editor/chatroom/whatever and have code shorthand to write something I useful, it opens up some interesting productivity opportunities. Currently with KM I use (⌥a) å.fill(text,count) to make text repeat a certain number of times. Useful when spamming texts haha! Anyway, let me know what you think.
23. ## Previewing links in Clipboard history

How can you preview links in clipboard history? I copy a lot of bitly links into my clipboard and re-use them, the challenge is when I'm trying to sort through the Clipboard history I can't tell the content of them. Is this possible? How could it be done?
24. ## Clipboard history pasting multiple items

I've been trying to figure out for a while now (a few days) and it has been eating me up. How does one create a workflow that can allow, with a keyboard shortcut, the pasting of multiple items from the clipboard? Ideally, I would be able to copy several items to my clipboard, and then with some shortcut, be able to post all the clippings from the last 5 minutes? But, it would also be really awesome if I could open the clipboard viewer, and with the "Shift" key held down and navigating with arrows, be able to select multiple ones to past in. I've been searching the forums, and I think I might just not be searching the right terms, or no one has done this. I think I still have alfred 2, so these {clipboard:1}, {clipboard:2} things aren't in the recognized coding language parameters (made up that combo of words, pardon me) If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this, or can help me to find something like this, PLEASE HELP ME. AHHHH...
25. ## First snippet expansion in Alfred 3.3.2.

Hi, Yesterday I updated Alfred to the latest version of Alfred (3.3.2) as I wanted to get rid of the little bug I encounter every time I expand a snippet for the first time of my session. Alfred either expands the latest clipboard item or if the text of my snippet is "Alfred", Alfred expands "AAlfred".
