Can't figure out how to get snippets working

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this is discussed elsewhere;


I'm having some issues with snippets. I can't get them to autoexpand in text, even though I've verified the accessibility options in my mac + "auto expand by keyword" options. 


I've just downloaded the newest version of Alfred yesterday, with the powerpack, and I'm running Catalina 10.15.6.


Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

@annafung Open Alfred's preferences to General > Request permissions... Under Accessibility, remove and re-add Alfred, as Catalina can forget which apps have been granted permissions and re-setting it is usually sufficient to re-enable this.


Let us know how you get on.

error was between chair + keyboard....


SO I'd set the permissions correctly in accessibility.... after rereading all the instructions again, I realized I forgot to actually set the keywords. 

(I'd created the names + snippets, and checked the box, but did not actually create keywords.)
