  1. Hi, I'd expect that after changing my preferences folder, it will also affect location of the workflows (including their working directories). But somehow it only affects location of the Alfred.alfredpreferences But it does not change Workflow Data location. Here an example: In my workflow, I use these two variables. Below values when using a default location: alfred_workflow_data /Users/jhartman/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data/carlosnz.timezones2 alfred_preferences /Users/jhartman/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Alfred.alfredpreferences After changing Preferences Folder: alfred_workflow_data /Users/jhartman/Library/Application Support/Alfred 3/Workflow Data/carlosnz.timezones2 alfred_preferences /Users/jhartman/Downloads/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences As you can see, still points to the old location. Edit I think bottom question is: how to handle custom workflow preferences to allow them being synchronised across different laptops, alongside Alfred preferences? To me it somehow invalidates the idea of syncing the configuration? Or em I missing something? Thank you, Jarek --------------- Alfred 3.8.2 Build 963, Friday 31st May 2019 MacOS 10.14.6 (18G87) Can be consistently reproduced
  2. Hello all as I understand the default in keyword allows to search contents of a file, but cannot be limited to a certain extension (all parts of the search expression will be used to match against the contents) the File Filter node in custom workflows allows to filter by extension, but requires to provide the UTI and does not allow to simply search for ".txt" as an extension. Determining the list of available UTIs and their respective extensions is not trivial Is my understanding of above behaviour correct?
  3. Have just done a clean install (i.e. uninstalled Alfred 3 first) to Alfred 4.0.1 b1078. Running on macOS Mojave 10.14.5 on a MacBook Pro (13 inch, 2017, Four thunderbolt 3 ports) Have been able to set the "macOS Accessibility preferences" and the "macOS Contacts preferences" but as the title says unable to set the other 2 preferences as Alfred 4 does not appear in the selection settings. See attached screenshots. Have searched but can't see anyone else having this problem. Look forward to a solution.
  4. Alfred 4 MacBook Pro Catalina 10.15.3 I'm setting up a new MacBook and I'm having trouble getting Empty trash to work. I have the Empty Trash system feature activated with 'e' as the keyword. When I try to use it, it opens Evernote instead. I don't have any Evernote workflows and (as far as I can tell, no other keyboard shortcuts set up for Evernote). In my system preferences, I have given Alfred access to Accessibility and Full Disk Access, but I can't figure out how to add apps to Automation - there's no '+' sign. Any suggestions on how to get this to work?
  5. I already enabled the option to search my safari bookmarks while typing on Alfred, but it doesn't show! I have tried both option, with the keyword and without it but none work. Running latest ver. 4.0.8[1135] and lates macOS
  6. @Vero Hi, I know that there are workflows to paste text from the clipboard, but can I use a workflow that copies text? In Google Sheets, I have 4 cells in a row and I want to setup a workflow using a Hotkey to: Copy cell 1 to the clipboard, move to cell 2 (Key Combo: Right), copy cell 2 to clipboard, move to cell 3 (Key Combo: Right) etc. Can this be done? Thank you.
  7. (1) I have: 2 iMacs, 1 MacBook Pro, and 1 MacBook Air. How many licences do I need to purchase to cover 4, 3, or 2 of these? (2) Where can I find a simple description of the different types of licences? Al Maloney
  8. Hey all, I haven't been active in this community for a long time (though I used to a lot!). And I haven't really been keeping up with the updates. I'd like to have a workflow that would let me assign a keyboard trigger to open a terminal and make it the frontmost app. If the app was already open, just switch to it. If it wasn't, open it and switch to it. Does something like this exist already? If not, how can I make it? It seems very straightforward but glancing at the examples in the workflow tab of Alfred, I couldn't immediately see how to... Thanks for any help thrown my way, Cheers.
  9. at the moment, when I try and search for some thing I can only find google, amazon and Wiki, I want to add my own search websites to the list...
  10. Hello, I’m developing bookmark workflow for the minor browser. Now, I faced the problem. I’m pass Alfred Json by script filter. When I run my code by `python3`, I checked correct outputs like below: { "items": [ { "arg": "https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/script-filter/json/", "subtitle": "https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/script-filter/json/", "title": "Script Filter JSON Format - Workflow Input Objects - Alfred Help and Support", "uid": "https://www.alfredapp.com/help/workflows/inputs/script-filter/json/", "valid": true } ] } But I couldn’t show my result by Alfred. My code @dataclass class UrlItem: name: str url: str class EnhancedJSONEncoder(json.JSONEncoder): def default(self, o): if dataclasses.is_dataclass(o): return dataclasses.asdict(o) return super().default(o) # There is Parser class def main(): Parser.parseForJson(bookMarkPath) json.dump(dict(items=mapToAlfredJson()), sys.stdout, indent=2, sort_keys=True, cls=EnhancedJSONEncoder) return 0 def mapToAlfredJson(): alfredJsonList = [] for item in bookMarkList: alfredJsonList.append(dict( title=item.name, subtitle=item.url, arg=item.url, uid=item.url, valid=True, )) return alfredJsonList if __name__ == "__main__": code = main() sys.exit(code) Can I get your help? 😭
  11. I'm sure I'm doing something embarrassingly simple wrong: I've merely imported the "Snippet Triggers - Getting Started" workflows, but when I type their prefixes/keywords nothing appears in Alfred. I've ensured I have granted Alfred Accessibility access. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  12. Hello, I created a workflow to open in a specific App the currently selected file in the Finder, via a hotkey trigger. Issue is, the hotkey trigger action copies the file name to the clipboard in the process, which I don't want. Seems like a bug to me, but not really sure if it is supposed to do that or not, I couldn't find any info on that. Otherwise, how could I fix that? Thanks! Benjamin
  13. I am trying to write an Alfred Workflow that creates a new react app. All the commands below are working fine EXCEPT for "npx create-react-app", anyone got this to work before? Many thanks... cd /Users/jameshusband/Development mkdir {query} cd {query} npx create-react-app my-app touch index.html
  14. I am looking to implement a workflow that calls an API after a user has entered some text. In order to not reach certain API call limits, the callout should only be performed once the user presses Enter (one time - not after every key stroke). The webservice will then return a response to be displayed to the user as an Alfred list item. The user may press Enter on the displayed list item to open a certain URL that the API responded with. This is the concept I came up with (note: No workflow that I can export yet): 1. [Keyword] User enters a keyword and then some text (e.g. 'mywf some text') 2. User presses 'Enter' 3. [Run Script] API is called 4. [Run Script] API returns response, passed as input to Script Filter 5. [Script Filter] Response is shown as list items in Alfred Issue 1: Step 2 would close the Alfred launcher, I want to keep it open to wait for the response via 4. My assumption is, this would only possible using a Script Filter at 1? Unfortunately, this would hit the API call limits. Issue 2: As Alfred is closed at 2, and reopened at 4, the "input" field of Alfred would be cleared of the user's input (as Run Script ended), and instead the output of the previous node would be shown (Run Script). However, as this output is a JSON string - to show the list items in Alfred -, this would now show as text in the input field (i.e. { "items" ... }). 6. [Script Filter] User presses 'Enter' on selected list item 7. [Script Filter] URL is opened in browser Due to Issue 1 & 2 this approach does not seem to work in theory. My questions are: 1) Is there any way to only execute a Script Filter upon pressing 'Enter'? This would allow me to have a Script Filter only, instead of an additional Run Script filter before. 2) How can I keep the Alfred launcher open due all of this? 3) How can I prevent the Alfred launcher input field from being filled with the output of the previous node?
  15. I am using the 'Play song' from iTunes as a workflow. The debugger shows" I know this is an issue with Mojave and the new 'sandbox' security bubble they put around interacting with the OS; I just don't know how to give it access. Alfred is already enabled in the seurity section. Any thoughts?
  16. 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: [13:26:44.539] Deepl-Translate[Script Filter] Queuing argument 'this is a test.' [13:26:44.556] Deepl-Translate[Script Filter] Queuing argument 'this is a test.'

  17. When you have Alfred configured to appear on the active screen, should large type also appear on the active screen? If so, then I’ll submit a bug report as my large type always appears on the active display, even when my second display is active.
  18. For advanced workflows it would be nice to be able to specify *combinations* of modifier keys when specifying action modifiers for workflow connections. For instance, allow an action modifier based on holding down *both* the Option and the Shift key. (I know there's potential for conflict with global hotkeys, such as Cmd-Opt-Return for the iTunes mini player.) Currently (Alfred 2.0.3), you're limited to a single modifier key.
  19. I have trouble with searching apps. Environment: * macOS Catalina version 10.15.2 (MacBook) * Alfred --version 4.0.7 [1131] Problem: Spotlight can find the app in "/System/Volumes/Data/Applications" (e.g. Safari.app, Google Chrome.app, and iTerm.app), but Alfred cannot find these apps. Strangely, my MacBookPro does not have this problem. what I have read or tried: * https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/catalina/#apps * https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/indexing/ * clear the app cache * Rebuilt metadata by going to Alfred's Advanced preferences > Rebuild macOS Metadata (with deleting .Spotlight-V100); and wait for 2 hours * type "reload" after each action. * reinstall Alfred * reinstall other apps * reinstall macOS Catalina Please help me, thank you.
  20. I had a look around in the forums and didn't see this question.... So I just migrated up to a new laptop running Catalina. My previous laptop running Mojave had no issues finding mac utilities like "Activity Monitor" or "Disk Utility". Sadly, I can't seem to get Alfred to be able to return those apps even after adding a direct path to them? Any thoughts?
  21. I just upgraded to Alfred 4 and installed it then uninstalled Alfred 3. I am unable to find my applications folder. I had read through some other previous issues reported back in October and I was able to fix the issue by adding system/volumes but read that this was not the right solution so I removed that.

  22. Hi there, I have a script, where the array for the JSON, which will be passed to Alfred again, looks like so: result.append( {"title": title, "subtitle": arg, "arg": arg, "icon": { "type": "filetype", "???": "???" } } ) What do I have to fill in for the ???, so that files are shown with their correct icons? PDFs with a pdf icon, jpgs with jpg icon and so on... Do I have to assign each individual filetype to an icon or is there a more generic way to achieve this?
  23. I've just migrated to Alfred from Quicksilver. Really enjoying it, however I would like to be able to set something as the default first result for a certain letter. For example, if I have multiple folders with similar names such as Folder_1 Folder_2 Folder_3 Folder_4 When I open Alfred and type "Fo" I want to be able to set the default first result to Folder 2. It seems like if I navigate to it it starts to do this automatically over time, but is there a way to set this manually?
  24. Hi, I'm trying to install V4 and whenever I download the disk image I get this message on opening: "Alfred" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the trash: I've tried the following: - Reboot - Full shutdown and start up - Downloading V3 and V4 (both fail in the same way) - Installing from Homebrew Details: - Running MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 - "Allow apps from App Store and identified developers" in System Preferences -> Security and Privacy Best, Michael Can't Install Alfred V4 or open Disk Image (is damaged and can't be opened)
  25. I am not successful in setting up a Workflow to do this: From an open Gmail, I want to send this series of keystrokes to avoid a bunch of clicks needed to get access to the "subject line" in the forwarded email pane. I want to send these: F shift+tab x 3 down arrow x 3 Enter I designed this workflow (snip attached) to send those keystrokes when I double tap the left shift key. But it doesn't work right. Maybe it sends the keystrokes too quickly.
