  1. This seems like a new issue since I've setup my new M1 MacBook Pro, but even though I have the "eject" and "ejectall" System commands enabled, they don't appear in my Alfred results. Any reason why this would be? (And yes, I had several external volumes mounted when I tried to execute this command)
  2. This could be really useful. Instead of digging in the control center for the toggles or ask Siri to do it, you could just type something like "Turn on Night Shift" or maybe just "nightshift". It could work just like the commands for empty trash and other system functions.
  3. Perhaps it was the latest macos update, now when I run the system command {shutdown} a MacOS utliity is displayed first {Migration Assistant}. This is odd itself, since I am only typing the letters 'shut'. So this had me thinking, can I re-order the way Alfred suggests things? Show system commands before applications. I don't want to ignore applcations/utilities, just have them be displayed after system commands. Thanks
  4. After a few minutes of using Alfred Remote to launch apps on my Mac, I quickly realized I'd also want a way to close windows and/or quit apps. Closing windows proved to be easy: Alfred Preferences > Remote > System Commands (or wherever you want on your remote) > + > Run Script > language: /usr/bin/osascript then paste in the following short Applescript: tell application "System Events" keystroke "w" using {command down} end tell I then added this icon as well: http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/oxygen-icons.org/oxygen/256/Actions-window-close-icon.png Once I had that working, I used the same steps to try to quit the frontmost app instead of closing it. I tried this script: tell application "System Events" keystroke "q" using {command down} end tell and this one: tell application "System Events" set theName to name of the first process whose frontmost is true tell application theName keystroke "q" using {command down} end tell end tell without success. neither does changing the keystroke in the second block to quit. I realize this is more of an Applescript question....but it raises Alfred Remote script issues that I'll bring up in another thread.
  5. Alfred's preferences for System: eject is checked local mounted volumes is selected eject all is unchecked On invoking the eject keyword, I see the list of local mounted volumes. Selecting, say, #2 and hitting return/enter, Alfred ejects all volumes rather than just #2. Behavior does not change if Mounts in /Volume is selected from the dropdown.
  6. I am very new to mac world and this awesome alfred. I have a strange issue when shutting down system using alfred system command. These are the behaviours which I have noticed. 1) It takes bit longer time than when selected from the apple icon menu. 2)It does not shutdown properly, screen goes black with the pointer showing in the screen. Have to force shutdown when this happens. The above two behaviours are shown some times but not guaranteed.(most of the time). I currently use Mavericks and latest version of alfred.v(2.5.1)
  7. I noticed a few months ago that my System Commands stopped working at all with Alfred v2. I just updated to Alfred v2.0.7 this morning and decided to upgrade to the powerpack in hopes that this would fix the problem. It didn't. After some quick googling I found this forum post but it didn't really help. Here are the system commands that currently don't work... Trash Empty Trash Logout Sleep Lock Restart Shutdown Here is what my Console is displaying when I use the "Sleep" command... 8/8/13 2:11:02.376 PM System Events[744]: Unable to load nib file: MainMenu, exiting 8/8/13 2:11:02.377 PM com.apple.launchd.peruser.502[129]: ([0x0-0xf30f3].com.apple.systemevents[744]) Exited with code: 1 My computer specs are... 27" iMac (Late 2012) Processor: 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 MB Software: OS X 10.8.4 (12E55) Does anyone have an idea of how this can be fixed? Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! J.D.
  8. Hi, When i type "eject" or "ejectall", none of my external hard drives are displayed in the Alfred Search bar. (Both of these two features are turned on in my settings). Apparently, it works with mounted .dmg files but not with external drives.
  9. Version 2.0 166 - ejectall and eject commands don't work. eject yields one choice of Quick Eject in my Applications folder and ejectall gives me Google, Amazon, and Wikipedia search only. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s1/sh/0a6d769f-c24c-42ca-9315-4c3d70300cb0/9c0139fb7ebacda1ca5eb1f9ce425abf
  10. I can see that there are system commands existing for shut down and quit all applications , but i am not able to put them in a sequence .. such as .. i want to quit all applications and then shut down. Can anyone suggest me a way or even better a workflow? thanks in advance
  11. I liked the V1 extension empty Downloads folder by Sebastian Hallum Clarke so I adapted it to a V2 workflow. Get it from Seb's page here. Thanks to Seb! -Stew
