[SOLVED] Alfred 4.0.1 - Auto-expand gone in Search Bar

Recommended Posts


A feature I use a lot in Alfred 3 is using Alfred's Search Bar as a scratchpad for quick Snippet expansions that I need to get onto the clipboard. For example, I invite Alfred, type pg` which expands to one of my email address, select all and copy, etc.

Originally this didn't work in Alfred 3, but after a discussion here (can't find the thread) it was added—and appreciated!

Unfortunately this feature isn't working in Alfred 4.

Is there any chance you could add it back in at a future date?

On a positive note, Alfred 4 looks brilliant. I'm really looking forward to digging in. Congratulations on the great work!

@patgilmour Snippet expansion is always disabled in Alfred and Alfred Preferences by default (and would have been in Alfred 3 too), but you can remove Alfred from the ignore list by going to Features > Snippets > Auto Expansion Options > Options, and remove Alfred from the list. :)
