  1. I find create snippets cumbersome, so I often don't do it. Is there an easier way to create snippets on the fly than opening up alfred preferences and filling things in there? It really seems like there should be a workflow where I can take something in my clipboard history and quickly make it into a saved snippet.
  2. I use Alfred as my main clipboard history tool, and it's very handy for re-pasting something I recently copied, and then copied over. However, it's a clunky process to open the clipboard history -- is there any way to make it accessible from within the Alfred main window, so I can select clippings via a Cmd+number combo?
  3. 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! Thanks! Vermeer
  4. Hi I am trying to create a snippet to name some files and I want the current week number. I tried using {date: week of year} and doesn't seem to return the right value. If someone has figured this out, please let me know. Thank you
  5. I've been using Alfred Powerpack for months now and enjoy the snippet functionality. But I have not figured out exactly what the use case is for the "snippet keyword" as circled in the attached screenshot. What exactly does that do? I don't see an explanation in the documentation. Thanks!
  6. I can't get alfred snippets to work properly with punto switcher. Prerequisites: Alfred is on in accessibility Punto Switcher is on accessibility The bug: 1. Type word in english 2. Press Punto switcher button to convert last word to other language layout 3. type any alfred snippet shortcode Expected result: A text snippet is placed Actual result: My last item from clipboard history is placed Gif of the bug is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ey0ijpa67gqza1j/snippet bug.gif?dl=0 Please help! I need alfred snippets and punto switcher to work together!
  7. When I activate a Snippet all I get is the contents of the clipboard. If I quit CopyPaste Pro then the snippet works as expected. Is there anything I can do to stop this happening? I don’t want to stop using CopyPaste Pro. I’m new to Alfred so I could be barking up the wrong tree. Emyr
  8. Hi there, I just bought Alfred mainly for the snippets function, and while I was sad to find out that they don't actually get copied over to iOS, I might stick with the app as it's sexy and handy on Mac. However, auto-expand doesn't seem to work. 1. The expansion in the Security Settings of MacOS is installed. 2. I have not remapped CMD + V 3. I have activated Auto-Expand for the snippets I'm trying to test. 4. I have not excluded the app I'm testing this in (Safari). 5. I don't get a secure input warning. 6. I have tested mid text expansion, neither are working. Screenshot of my settings attached.
  9. Alfred trims trailing spaces and tabs in keyword. Fix it please.
  10. Would love to have a way to import snippets already created in other apps into Alfred? I'm thinking apps like aText, TextExpander, etc?
  11. A snippet pack to make putting the true unicode equivalents of things like :sparkles:, :lipstick:, and other emojis used in git commits easier to type. It gives them names relevant to coding. Of course the official gitmoji has a CLI but suppose you want to use an IDE or don't want to install npm but already have Alfred Powerpack, or you just want a more inline way way of adding emoji, or you want the emoji to work with $git log (e.g. :sparkles: will not be interpreted by git log); if so, this is for you. Examples: :sparkles: -> :add: Because one uses ✨ when adding new features :penguin: -> :lin: Because one uses 🐧 when making linux related changes :checkered_flag: -> :win: Because one uses 🏁 for windows related changes :heavy_plus_sign: -> :+dep: Because one uses ➕ when adding dependencies etc.. Added benefit of making emojis appear with $git log because they are just unicode after using this. Inspired by: https://gitmoji.carloscuesta.me/ And also: https://github.com/atom/atom/blob/7929e261a0d6e78ff4ca5196c8b385946e64dbd9/CONTRIBUTING.md#git-commit-messages Full mapping details and download is available on the github
  12. I would like to use the snippet feature in MacVim as well but it doesn't work. I think this is due to MavVim not using a plain stock cocoa edit widget but something else. Is there anything how I could get it to work? Are there are any workflows, or simple way to make Snippets & MacVim work together?
  13. I've taken to using snippets to store URLs to animated gifs - for easy referencing and pasting into chats etc. What would be *great*, would be to support quicklook by pressing a configurable hotkey, within the Snippets Viewer, if the snippet contents is a URL, to preview the GIF - although this would be great for previewing any kind of URL. Cheers, can't live without Alfred!
  14. I have enabled Alfred 3's accessibility in System Preferences, I have "Automatically Expand Snippets by Keyword" checked in Alfred's preferences, and I have several snippets defined with "Autoexpand" selected for those snippets. They don't autoexpand. They still work with the "snip" keyword, but they don't expand on their own in Textedit or in Notes. I am sad.
  15. Just started using snippets in A3 and love it - much faster than AText which I was using before and have now removed permanently. However, despite turning "Expand snippets mid-string" off and rebooting several times, A3 still insists on expanding mid-string. for instance whenever i try to start tmux i get tomorrowux! Sierra, MBA 11" Any help?
  16. I have 708 little text bits that I want to menu-ize. If I can make each one a Snippet and stuff them all in a collection that seems like one way to do it. Except I'm not seeing a way to mass import from a text file. Can it be done (without huge effort)? If not, are there other options? PS. The snippets are HipChat emoticons like (congaparrot).
  17. Is it possible to have some default text show up in a snippet with the {cursor} placeholder? %<area("{cursor}")>% expand to: %<area("object_id")>% with object_id selected ready to type in the replacement text? i'd like a way to remind me what i need to enter basically. ty
  18. I just started using Snippets after transferring everything from aText. Twice within the past 2 days, my snippets have stopped expanding. I use Google Chrome - and the only way to get them working again is to reboot Chrome. This is a major pain in the rear with everything I have open for work. Is there a bug that I should know about? I wouldn't have switched everything over if I knew this was going to happen. Please help!
  19. 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!
  20. Snippets are a great new feature. To make it fully useful as a substitute for TextExpander add a feature that will expand abbreviations based on the case of the keyword. For example, byu expands to beautiful while Byu expands to Beautiful. Thanks
  21. Hi there guys! I'm coming from TextExpander now and I miss —maybe it's possible, but I couldn't find a way— the possibility of use a reference to other snippets when I create a new one. For instance: :thx > Thank you very much! :pthx > That's perfect. {:thx} > That's perfect. Thank you very much! Thanks.
  22. Hi Snippets work great all over macOS including NValt - except as the first input/first-line-first-characters in a note in NValt. This might seem like an edge case but my problem is that I use NValt for journaling and always insert new journal entries at the top of the journal, starting with todays date by using a snippet. This bug can be reproduced every time, and the work-around is to enter any character and then the snippet, then to remove the extra character. Please note that snippets work fine anywhere else in NValt. Thanks /Mike
  23. I haven't been able to find anything about it, so I'm guessing it's not part of the snippet feature; but is it possible to add simple math to time and dates of snippets? For example, "today plus 1 day" type stuff.
  24. I have a snippet tied to the key sequence: ;etd The snippet has this: Another one done: {clipboard} The clipboard contains a long web site link. When the link is very long, the end of the link gets deleted and the beginning still has the ";etd" (or part of it).
  25. Hi I recently switched from TextExpander to Alfred for most of my snippets and it works really nice, but I'm having a problem with expansion of snippets in Alfred's default search field. E.g I use the snippet " ddate" all over macOS and it works fine in all applications (except 1Password of course) but not in Alfred's main search. Any suggestions what I can do to enable it? Thanks Mike
