    Rich Text in Snippets

    Is there a way to use rich text in snippets such as links or formatted text?
  2. Hi all, I accidentally deleted the whole collection instead of one snippet. Is there a way to retrieve that? Maybe something on the file system in the Library folder? Thanks in advance for your help. - Charlie
  3. I have tried multiple different settings to fix it, but whenever I expand a snippet into Word, it reformats the paragraph spacing, messing with my document. Is there an option (in either Word or Alfred) to fix this? Thanks!
  4. Hi When I click on 'Automatically expand snippets by keyword' the Alfred Text Service dialog is coming up but when I click on 'Let's get started!' then nothing happens. System Preferences is not coming nor is the dialog box to ask for permission. If I go to the Security & Privacy / Privacy tab there is nothing shown. I, eventually, was able to fix it by using 'Path Finder', go into Alfred3 package content and drag the Alfred Text Service into the Security & Privacy / Privacy tab.
  5. Would love to have a way to import snippets already created in other apps into Alfred? I'm thinking apps like aText, TextExpander, etc?
  6. 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
  7. Hi all, I'm trying to use snippets to insert symbols (up arrow, down arrow, etc.) into anki cards on a Mac. My goal is to be able to insert them when making Anki cards but I am clueless on where to begin. Can someone point me in the right direction on where to learn? Thanks!
  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. 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?

    Countdown delta

    Hi. Trying to create an Alfred snippet that calculates a delta value from 'now' to a specific time or date. In short, I'd like to put a hard date in a snippet, and every time I insert it, the result is the number of 'days' or 'hours' between now and that hard date or time. Thoughts? Thanks!
  11. It'll be great useful if we can use snippet groups only when some specific applications activated.

    Lost Snippets

    Hi, I accidentally deleted my main collection of snippets, instead of just the one individual snippet inside that collection (wasn't paying attention to which '+/-' I was pressing). I don't have a sync location set and unfortunately don't have a time machine backup - does anyone know where the alfdb file goes when it's deleted? Not in trash, hoping it's still recoverable. Thanks in advance, any help is really appreciated!
  13. I know I can export my snippets into a `.alfredsnippets` file. Is it possible to export into another format, or convert that format into something like a `.csv` file? I don't intend moving to another service but I don't like being locked into a specific format after putting so much effort into my collections. Also, it would be great to be able to work on my snippets in my text edit where I can modify, add to, and maintain my collection as a `.csv`, or something similar. I imagine this is a little controversial because there are so many competing products. At the same time, I'd feel even better about using Alfred if I felt that I wasn't risking losing everything if I am ever forced to use something different (for example, if I have to replace my personal machine, I'd probably switch to Linux).
  14. 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
  15. Right now Alfred allows full fuzzy matches for app names only, e.g. pto -> Photos. This leads to inconsistent results, when searching for files and also clipboard, snippets etc. I would really like an option to enable the same behavior everywhere, so I can type for instance errcod -> ErrorCodes. Are there any plans to implement this in the future?
  16. 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!

    Snippet Fuzzy Search

    I'd like to see fuzzy search for snippets. Right now if you skip one letter in the snippet name nothing matches. I tend to have snippets for programming that start with similar strings but ultimately diverge toward the end. So if I'm trying to bring up my "gf_left_half" snippet I could just search glh for instance to bring it up.
  18. Snippets please support gif and image~! So I can input image emoji by snippets. In China, It's popular to send emoji while chatting online, if alfred snippet support image and gif, it will earn many Chinese user!! example: While input "!jump", I hope it become flowing gif tiao.gif

    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
  20. 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.
  21. It would be great if one could change the snippet expansion sound. The current sound always sounds like an error to me.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
