  1. Hey guys, I love Alfred's Clipboard features, but I miss one that is common to almost all good clipboard managers: sequential paste. Nowadays, if I want to do this in Alfred, I need to copy a few items, then invoke the Clipboard History using Command + Option + C, then use Command + number to paste what I want. Each time. If Alfred had a sequential paste feature, I'd be able to copy a few items and then, using a special paste keyboard shortcut, it would paste each last copied item in reverse order. That would be awesome! Cheers.
  2. Hi, How do I reset/remove Alfred app and its preferences? Hot keys stopped working, search not showing, wofkflow keywords not showing and I cant even remap alfred hotkey. Support taking forever to get something actionable. I have spent too much time debugging, reinstalling about 5 times in different configurations. I cant seem to reset preferences and workflows. So frustrating. After removing the app from applications I have also executed the following script. It does not remove configs rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.runningwithcrayons.Alfred rm ~/Libr
  3. I want to browse a specific folder in Alfred, sorted by date, triggered by a simple keyword. (I have a screenshots folder that I want to be accessible in Alfred so that I can drag a screenshot into a document.) Can someone point me in the right direction? I've made some early stabs at it in the Workflow editor but I'm hopeless. Thanks.
  4. 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.)
  5. I don't know if my hand is shaking or if my keyboard is too sensitive (I did change the default repeat rate in OSX), but I keep merging clipboard items accidentally, I sort of like the merge feature and would like to try to keep using it, but the regular shortcut is just not working out for me. Maybe there's a trick to changing it to something else? EDIT: I'm using a bunch of other keyboard oriented utilities - Seil, Karabiner, Hammerspoon Thanks
  6. Apologies for what I am sure is at best a 3 on a "scale of 1-to-10" difficulty question... but I keep scratching my head on something and can't find the solution. my daily workflow: I manually keep a list of "special approvals" in an Excel doc for documentation purposes. To do this, I go to the website where I am reviewing and approving items... and when I see something that should be added to my tracking worksheet, I highlight and copy four different fields of data from the page... switch to Excel... and paste the four clippings in four different cells in a row. w
  7. Whenever I use the 'Search' or 'Google' keywords for Alfred - ie, type those keywords followed by return - I get a crash reporter window saying "Google search quit unexpectedly". I'm almost sure that this is because when I type those keywords, alfred previews that it's going to launch something odd looking - /Users/holbrook/Applications/Chrome Apps.localized/Default coobgpohoikkiipiblmjeljniedjpjp .. and more. I've attached a screenshot of the report; I can attach the actual report if desired. I'm almost certain that weird path is my issue; on another Mac, Google maps t
  8. When I move the search bar from the top of the screen, to the bottom of the screen, the search bar reverts to the top when I toggle Alfred or logoff/reboot. This happens on two Macs, both running 10.13.6 Is this a general problem? Are there any solutions? Thanks 🙂
  9. Thank you awesome app Alfred! My condition My Mac OS = Catalina (10.15.7) My Alfred version = 4.3 [1205] I am Powerpack user (Mega Supporter) Reproduction procedure of my problem I create some original workflows And right click a workflow in the sidebar -> and choose "Export" menu And Input workflow informations (Name, Version, Description, Bundle ID, Created By, Website and About this workflow) into "Please review Workflow details" dialog And press "Export" button I don't catch any response from Alf
  10. Novice disclaimer: I'm very new to this so apologies if I misunderstand concepts or use incorrect terms Hello Today I used some AppleScript to interface back into Alfred. I've built a hotkey workflow to quickly launch the "Browse Previous Path" feature: on alfred_script(q) tell application "Alfred" to search "Previous" end alfred_script I have a feeling the Key Combo output is not required, and that I could tell Alfred to action the search via the AppleScript. But I don't really understand how AppleScript interfaces with Alfred…
  11. Hi everyone, I would like to add two delimiters in the Split Arg to Var functionality (space, and @). It is something possible? Thanks in advance ! Michaël
  12. Alright I know this has been asked before, but I created this account just to ask the question again because I enjoy your desktop application so much. I would gladly pay the PowerPack fee if this feature came with it. I've been doing Android development for a little over 7 years if there was anyway I could help please let me know.

  14. Hi, it's not possible to set e.g. this mod ctrl+cmd as name in an AppleScript record. Would be awesome if Alfred could accept also e.g. ctrl_cmd.
  15. Is there some way to get Alfred's text box to open at eye level, the way Spotlight does? Right now, it pops open at the neck-craning top of my screen.
  16. Hi all! This is my first post on the forum as the new Alfred user. Since I made a switch from Spotlight I wanted to disable the Spotlight indexing to save the energy and some disc space. To this end I went to Spotlight settings -> Privacy -> Added whole disk to remove the whole cache -> Removed it from selection (as described here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201716) -> Went back to 'Search results' tab -> Unchecked all But still after the last MacOS update I could see high energy usage of Spotlight. Are there any recommended steps to disab
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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:

  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
