  1. 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.)
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Hello. I'm a newb to AppleScript and am trying to make a workflow to open a new TextEdit window, similar to this one made for Chrome: https://github.com/caiogondim/alfred-chrome-window-workflow . Here is my current script: on alfred_script(q) tell application "TextEdit" make new window tell application "System Events" to set frontmost of process "TextEdit" to true activate end tell end alfred_script Here's the workflow: Calling it in Alfred with "tw" results in no behavior. Could someone please help me out?
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Hey, I try to create a workflow that create a new file in my Notes app. It works. But I want that file name is automatically generated from date, time and my query. I add a bash script what takes all these things and use the output as file name: But the problem is, that the query output is shown in a new line.

  12. Hello, sorry for my bad english, I'm coming from Germany. Since the last update, the "Auto-Paste on Return" option no longer works. If I have selected a text from Alfred it will no longer be inserted automatically. I use version 4.1.
  13. I have a workflow where I copy 6 different lines of text and then paste them into 6 different browser fields. I am trying to write an Alfred workflow using Applescript to do this for me automatically. Therefore I need to copy the six different lines of text, invoke the workflow, so that it: Invokes the Alfred clipboard history viewer. Paste the sixth entry. Tabs to the next field. Repeats.... I have this script so far which invokes the Alfred clipboard history viewer, but the next "System Events" line in which command-6 keyboard shortcut is ex
  14. I'm pretty sure this is a dumb question, but I just absolutely cannot figure out how to get to the right screen in alfred preferences. I want to create a file filter (i.e., following this guide) but I can't figure out how to get to the new file filter screen. From the Alfred Filters screen I don't see an option for File Filter. Is it a workflow? How do I get to this screen? Thank you!
  15. I'm an AppleScript newb. I'm trying to make a workflow to open a new finder window. Here is my current script: tell application "Finder" make new window activate end tell Calling it with my keyboard shortcut results in no behavior. I checked out the AppleScript finder documentation but I must be missing something. Could someone please help me out?
  16. Hi, How can I view/manage all the keyboard shortcuts / hotkeys used by Alfred? I want to disable the cmd-option-C key combo for opening "All snippets".
  17. I am using Taskpaper app and in the app Cmd + Opt + \ is used often which is essential for my work. But the Alfred has mapping that shortcut to "Show list of available Actions for selected Finder item". When I type it in Taskpaper app, Alfred is taking over and intercept that shortcut. Is there place in pereferences where I can disable that shortcut or remap it?
  18. I want option whether save the selected item with a hotkey to Clipboard History.
  19. I like that 1Password is supported but personally I use LastPass- it would be nice to have that as a supported alternative
  20. If I press on: CMD + Option + - Alfred opens my home-folder: I could not find any settings for this keyboard shortcut in Alfred-preferences. I dont use any custom Workflows in Alfred. Is there a way to change this behavior as this keyboard shortcut is used for zoom-out in many apps. Thank you for any help. Edit: Alfred 4 with powerpack (happens on alfred 3 too), OSX 10.15.5, Austrian Keyboard
  21. So I recently swapped computers and noticed Box Drive has changed their application functionality, (moving from a folder to a virtual piece of "attached volume". For what ever reason this has caused an issue with the depth at which I can search, even using Dynamic file search.
  22. Hi. I'm looking to create an Alfred workflow that copies a template folder from its location in Dropbox to my Desktop. The folder path to be copied is follows: /Users/aaronriddle/Dropbox (Personal)/Aaron Riddle Photography/Video/Virginia Elope Video Template I want to copy it to my Desktop path as follows: /Users/aaronriddle/Desktop I tried doing this via terminal using the below script: cp -a /Users/aaronriddle/Dropbox (Personal)/Aaron Riddle Photography/Video/Virginia Elope Video Template. /Users/aaronriddle/Desktop/ However, it gives me the following error: zsh:

  24. Hi there, It works fine on my MBP, but on the iMac when using a snippet : - text it is not pasted - I get a beep - text can't be pasted manually (cmd-v) BUT, switching to another app in the background, then switching back to the desired app let you paste with CMD-V. Very weird. Can someone help ? Best
  25. I'd like to search via Alfred for files and folders in my mounted volumes which are usually mounted 24/7. I explicitly added the path of a volume like "/Volumes/..." to Alfred Preferences > Features > Default Results > Search Scope (and "Extras" > Folders is enabled). When I search for known folders or files I do not get any results from this volume. How is this possible? I am using Alfred 4.0.2 (but had the same behavior with any version of Alfred 3, though I finally reach out). Thank you.
