Auto Expand is not working in MS Office

Recommended Posts

I use Alfred2 within Microsoft OneNote with snippets. When I use a snippet and want to autoexpand Alfred is filling in the last saving at the clipboard but not the proper text. If the clipboard is empty Alfred2 is just doing nothing.

The situation is different if I use the Alfred window with "snip mysnippet" and chose it. Than Alfred is expanding the right text.



macOS 10.13.2

Yes, I did. 

After a restart of the OS (the clipboard is empty) the expand works. If I have any content in the clipboard the expand doesn't works in MS Office Apps.


I tested the expand in other apps and there it works without problems.

@iGyver did you try slowing down key events (in that troubleshooting guide)? If that doesn't work, try turning off restoring of previous clipboard content altogether (on the same preferences sheet).
