Show snippet keyword in snippet keyword search

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I sometimes forget the keyword for a snippet, but when I search for it with the snippet keyword (default is "snippet" I think), it only shows the snippet in a one-liner, not the keyword, so I never learn the keyword unless I look it up in Alfred Preferences or invoke the Snippet Viewer Hotkey. I'd love to be able to see the snippet keyword if I held in e.g. ⌘ key.

 

PS: This is largely resolved by using the "Snippet Viewer Hotkey" instead of "Snippet Keyword", but I'd be nice to have both places.

Could you show a screenshot? When I call the Snipper Keyword I do see the snippet itself as the title of the result and the text as the subtitle.

@vitor Sure.

 

As an example, I have an snippet with:

 

Name: Happy - Owl

Keyword: !owl

Snippet: ⊙▽⊙

 

Pressing the Viewer Hotkey:

It tells the keyword "!owl" in the lower right portion of the screen.

 

If instead I invoke the "Snippet keyword" (which I've set to "s"), I get:

I.e. no keyword "!owl", just the title and content of the snippet. It would be useful it this would show the keyword as well, either by default or by holding a modifier key.

My mistake, looks like I’m using the keyword as the title as well. It’s been so long since I’ve setup a new snippet that I forgot you could do both.
