[SOLVED] Alfred Clipboard History moves window to center

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to switch to a clipboard manager, but Alfred is giving me a hard time. 

Basically every time when I do my shortcut to reveal the history it moves the last active window to center and leaves it there.

Is there an option to disable that kind of behavior ?

@OhneNik Welcome to the forum. :)


Alfred's clipboard viewer doesn't manipulate other windows, so is it possible that there's a hotkey combination clash with your window manager? If you change the clipboard viewer's hotkey (under Features > Clipboard) to something drastically different temporarily, does the issue go away? Or if you quit the window manager or change/disable its hotkeys?

Thanks for the hint. Turns out, that a misconfiguration for Amethyst also hijacks the key combination I used to bring the clipboard viewer in front. 

I'm sorry, should've thought about that ? 


 @VeroThank you!
