  1. Having a strange issue since the last few updates it appears. I had stopped using Alfred for some time due to previous problems, but now that I've come back over the course of the past week I'm finding that Alfred doesn't show up within the menubar (I use Bartender and hide Alfred on the secondary menubar) after some time of running. I've checked and the process is still running (`ps | grep Alfred` and in Activity Monitor.app), but seemingly unresponsive since also the keyboard command trigger (in my case control-^) does not evoke Alfred either. If I wait a bit, like a couple of m
  2. Hello, After some looking around I found this workflow that uses WolframAlpha's api to get direct search results. https://www.packal.org/workflow/wolframalpha This workflow is very cool but takes ages to load. WolframAlpha has a cool short answer api that returns answer to a url with the question. https://products.wolframalpha.com/short-answers-api/documentation/ Since it's that simple I imagine that making a workflow that fetches the url, for example "http://api.wolframalpha.com/v1/result?appid=DEMO&i={query}", and returns the result as an Alfred title wouldn
  3. Apple repair wiped my all my data and now starting fresh, I was able to backup a file called Alfred preferences. When I opened Alfred for the first time is asked to migrate but it wouldn't let me choose the file to import cuz it asked for a taz or some file I didn't have. Now my Alfred is just stock and I don't know how to import the my Alfred preferences file. Could someone help me, I spent hours setting up Alfred and not sure if I lost everything.
  4. Hello, I've not been able to get this to work. First I get two of the same options and sometimes two of the same answer, but in any case, the result is always the same language, but w/o spaces. I've played w/ the target and initial languages (assuming I'm doing it right, there are two places to set these per the instructions), but the result is always in English. I want to convert English to German. I'm using this workflow: http://www.packal.org/workflow/deepl-translate https://github.com/AlexanderWillner/deepl-alfred-workflow2 Here's the debug info: [13:26:

  6. Hi all, I would like to create a shortkey to paste to the front most application the clipboard item before the last. That can be achieved accessing {clipboard:1}, copying to the clipboard, and then selecting 'automatically paste to front most app'. However, that copies the item to the clipboard, therefore making it the last (most recent) item in the clipboard history. Is there a way to access and paste items from the clipboard history without changing the order of the history itself? Thanks! Giovanni
  7. Hello, I've been having this problem lately : Alfred seems to ignore my external drive in its search results,especially folders (files tend to be omitted, but appear sometimes). I'm using this flashdrive constantly and set the search results to 40. It is in the search scope, my macos version is 10.15.7, alfred is 4.2 build 1180. Thank you in advance for your help, Cedric
  8. Hi there, I'm working on an app that sometimes requires me to change date/time of my system. When copying something while being in ThE FuTuRe, those items will stay at the top of my clipboard when I'm going back to the present with my date/time settings - until I physically reach that point of time. Is there any way of selectively removing clipboard items or removing all future clipboard items, without clearing the whole clipboard history? Best, Klemens
  9. Hi all: Do hotkey triggers must have one of the modifier keys? I want to open a url website with space and a number key , but I found that one of the four modifier keys must be set in the setting of the hotkey trigger. I know that an application called "spaceluncher" has this feature, but it has no way to specify the browser to open a url website. Hope to hear from you!
  10. HI All, very new to this and so would appreciate some help. I'm trying to create a workflow to open the Talk Radio web site, then click the button to listen live which opens another window, which then requires a further click to listen. So far all I've been able to do is open the url (can't work out how to post that, though) Thanks for your help,
  11. I am looking for the following: Use one List filter so that after hitting a keyword, selecting a list item, hitting "Enter", Alfred would take the "Arg" value of the list item and run it in a Run script given the value "Arg" is always a one-liner like this one: "screencapture -x -R 455,60,530,416 ~/Downloads/Hotkey_Screenshots.png". Here is the Dropbox link to the workflow. Thank you.
  12. Hi, I am trying to build a workflow that converts a markdown file to a Word document with pandoc. The workflow creates a long string that serves as the pandoc command with all the arguments. Now when I take that string and simply run it in the Terminal, it all works wonderfully. So does running the string in the Terminal Command Action. Now I obviously would like to replace the Terminal Command Action with the Run Script Action, only now the workflow does not work anymore? I deactivated all escaping (just like in the Terminal Command) and just have "{query}" as input, s
  13. This would make for workflow that anyone could reuse for various use cases (similar to the default Alfred Web Search) Workflow Logic: 1) Copy front browser url (automatically) 2) Append copied url to predetermined url 3) Open appended url into current browser window Use Cases: Annotate Current Webpage https://via.hypothes.is/{frontmost-browser-url} WaybackMachine Search https://web.archive.org/web/*/{frontmost-browser-url}
  14. Basically the title. I am using a python script which will return a list in one of its functions. How can I display the elements of that list as options in Alfred? Example: def func(): #some code here return a # a = ["A", "B", "C", "D"] for example How do I get "A", "B", "C", "D" to be the 4 options in an Alfred drop down like below:
  15. I use a File Filter to search within files of a specific folder. In case there is no file found (e.g. no file for query XYZ), I would like to provide a custom entry like "Create XYZ" which then allows me to trigger the creation of a new file using the "XYZ" query string. The creation of the file is not the problem; I am wondering if this custom entry is possible at all without implementing the file search functionality on my own using a script filter. Does anyone have an idea how this could be approached using Alfreds built-in features? Thanks
  16. I tried searching for this but can't find anyone with the same version. As far as I can tell, I have tweaked the settings and granted permission, but I am missing the rich file preview part when I search on Alfred. That is, for the screenshot on https://www.alfredapp.com/help/features/previews/ I am missing the right hand side with the picture and the file info. Hoping for a fix! (I even bought the Powerpack thinking this is a paid feature.)
  17. Hello, I read through the cheat sheet, and was surprised to discover other commands when reading about Alfred tips on other web sites. Example ⌘ L which I find useful 1. Activate Alfred 2. type in some text. 3. Then hit Cmd+L. 4. The shorter the snippet of the text, the larger it will appear. Where could I find a list of all Alfred default hotkeys, keywords and shortcuts ? thanks in advance for your time and help
  18. I created more than 10 text manipulations using a regex transform. I tested 2 of them with workflows and they work fine. They are all structured the same way (hotkey, app focus, etc) except for the regex. My problem is that I do not want to assign a hotkey to each. I want to assign one text manipulation hotkey (⌃⌥ ⌘T) and choose from a list of transformations. My initial idea was to use the same hotkey, ie sharing/conflicting hotkeys and expected some kind of a menu to be displayed from which I would choose, but this is not the case, even if all workflows are structured th
  19. Hello! Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place, but I cannot find a setting for Third Party Integrations in the Advanced portion of Alfred's preferences. If someone could point me to the right place, that would be much appreciated!
  20. Just starting to learn Alfred and have found some cool search tools like https://github.com/deanishe/alfred-searchio Curious if there's anything like this that will allow you to enter a search term and have it search multiple sites and open the searches in Firefox tabs? Started to try to and make this and realized it's beyond what I can throw together so far.
  21. After pressing the hot key to trigger the Alfred search bar, I'd like to be able to use ctrl-j/k to move up and down through the selection menu. Also, using ctrl-h/l would be ideal for moving left/right. I can't seem to find anything in the forums that addresses this or a way to change it within Alfred. Is it even possible? Thanks, Ezgz
  22. What you were doing when the issue happened - Typing and trying to use a snippet I had set up - when I typed the snippet, instead of inserting the snippet text, Alfred sometimes (with no consistency) pastes in whatever was previously on my clipboard. So, if my snippet is "noa" to expand to "not only am", Alfred will sometimes correctly paste "not only am", but other times paste whatever text I had previously copied onto my clipboard (for example if I copied a URL it would paste that, even though it's not the snippet text at all) Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by perf
  23. I have been running into an issue lately when I restart my Mac. Upon restart, iCloud Drive will decide to beam my Alfred Sync Settings folder to the cloud and I have to re-download it. The most recent time I did this, directing to the folder does not result in Alfred following my sync settings, it is like a fresh install. I have run into this issue before but I cannot remember how I resoled it. Help appreciated!
  24. I previously set an icloud folder for syncing preferences. However, icloud keeps uploading this preferences backup to the cloud and delete the local one. Now I just want to shutdown the alfred sycing. But I have no idea how to get it done. Could anybody help? Thank you.
