Problems with Snippets and Clipboard

Recommended Posts


Snippets: Several times a day I experience this behavior: working on some text I type shortcut for Alfred snippet and instead of snippet text I get current clipboard contents.

Clipboard: When I want to paste something from history, I open history, select needed clip, press enter - and nothing happens. And then if I press cmd+V again only then paste occurs. Also happens quite often.


Please advise.

@gatek Do you have any other clipboard manager or keyboard modifier tools on your Mac that could be interfering with normal behaviour? Take a look at the Accessibility preferences (System Prefs > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility) for any apps listed there.


If so, disable any of these temporarily which should allow you to identify which tool might be causing the unexpected behaviour.

Have you examined that issue?


It seems like the app is fettling the key events or clipboard outside of Alfred's control, which would naturally get in the way of Alfred working as expected.


Have you tried disabling that app and things work as expected?
