[SOLVED] Typinator Expansion on Alfred Command Line

Recommended Posts

With previous versions of Alfred, Typinator abbreviations would expand on the command line. For me, "dvt" became "Devonthink". "ss1" became "ss Inbox 1-sided" for ScanSnap.


Such expansions no longer work in Alfred 4. I know that there is a setting to change that or a Terminal command, but I do not know what it is.


I would appreciate your help!

I found this answer from Alfred. 

This behavior is deliberate. Many users told us that Typinator made unwanted replacements in this situation and asked NOT to expand abbreviations in Alfred's search window. For this reason, we have made this the default behavior in Typinator 8.0.


However, you can revert to the previous behavior with a hidden setting.

To do so, execute the following command in Terminal:


defaults write com.macility.typinator2 expandInAlfred 1
