The way Snippets work on multilingual keyboards...


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

ย 

I use Alfred Snippets a lot.

ย 

I have two languages on my keyboard - English and Russian, and all of my Snippets use English for their keywords.

ย 

It works great when you're on the English keyboard - you type the proper keyword, and it automatically expands. But the annoying thing is that when you use another language (Russian in my case), you press the same keys (which becomes like a "muscle-memory" for you with time) - and nothing happens.

ย 

So, for example, I have a group of Snippets with emojis, and one of them is`!thu` ("thumbs up", "๐Ÿ‘"). When I'm on the Russian keyboard, it corresponds to the `!ะตั€ะณ` symbols.

ย 

So, my suggestion would be - is it possible for Alfred to "guess" the Snippet if it was written on a different language?

ย 

I've seen similar behavior in other apps - for example, JetBrains IDEs do that in their "Search everywhere" (see the attached image).

ย 

Thank you! ๐Ÿ™

ย 

PS:

( `๐Ÿ™` was inserted as a Snippet ๐Ÿ™‚ )
( And, `
๐Ÿ™‚` too. Ok, I guess I have to stop it ๐Ÿ™‚ )
