@biati Thanks so much for the hard work here—just bought Alfred and I think your workflow will get the most use from me.

 

I found the default currency conversion to be quite inaccurate (when checking against Google, Morningstar, XE). This is fixed with the Fixer API, however I see the free API only has 250 calls/month. What happens when this limit is reached?


Is there any way to make the default conversion rates more accurate, maybe using yahoo finance like Spotlight?

 

Thanks!

Hi @tyyyo, welcome to the forum.

 

That doesn't look like it's a workflow-specific problem. It looks more like a problem with the software you're using to sync Alfred's preferences.

 

If your other workflows are working okay, re-installing this workflow should fix your problem.

The workflow is configured to update exchange rates at a frequency that won't exceed 250 calls/month. The rates may be a few hours out-of-date as a result.

Thanks deanishe!

 

I am currently storing the preferences locally.

Re-installing doesn't seem help either (Tried previous versions as well).

Thanks a lot anyways, appreciate it!

Ahh fantastic, thank you! Fixer is still much more accurate than the default rate was, so this is fine.

 

Thanks again.

Hey there I am new to this. When I type "ca" on Alfred it gives me "Unable to run task" with launch path not accessible.

How do I go about it?

I second this problem. I have multiple other workflows that work no problem. Tried deleting and installing, reinstalling, older versions and the problem still stands.

Hey,

How do I add my own keywords? Trying to make it recognize '6ft1 to cm' as '6 feet 1 inches to cm' or 6'1".

 

Also so it recognizes 6' as 6 feet or even just 4" as 4 inches.

 

Great workflow!

 

Thanks!

same here... used to work then all of a sudden.

Amazing workflow, would love to get it working again.

 

Reason: launch path not accessible

 

It's likely that the folder required to run this task has somehow been deleted, perhaps syncing?

 

This error isn't that serious, just try again :)

@fddc @Diogo Ribeiro  i use the workflow every day and it's working correctly, i really have no idea what that problem is. You could try removing all the workflow configuration (see attached file) and remove everything inside ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Workflow Data/com.alfred.calculateanything once everything is removed make sure to download the latest version from Releases · biati-digital/alfred-calculate-anything (github.com)

@biati Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately no luck.

 

However, I think this is my issue and not a workflow problem. I have a MacBook running MacOS 12 B3 and this one gets the error. Last night I was able to try on another Mac that has my Alfred synced and the workflow seems to work fine on MacOS 11 latest release.

 

Sorry for getting you to troubleshoot what is likely a beta error ??

 

Edit * My other workflows work fine on both OS.
