@pablonm Could you please launch Alfred's preferences to the General tab and follow these steps?


- Click Request Permissions
- Click Accessibility 
- Remove Alfred from the Accessibility preferences if he's already in there
- Quit Alfred
- Re-add Alfred to Accessibility preferences
- Try your snippets again in a native app like TextEdit


All should be back to normal :) As macOS Catalina is still buggy, it can forget about permissions, so resetting like this re-establishes that Alfred should have the necessary permissions to paste clipboard and snippet items for you.


Let me know how you get on.
