'Large Type' and 'Copy to Clipboard' conflict

Recommended Posts

When creating a workflow, delivering {query} to both the 'Large Type' and 'Copy to Clipboard' output options causes the setting 'Automatically paste to front most app' within 'Copy to Clipboard' to not complete.

There isn't much Alfred can do about this as the Large Type makes Alfred the front most app, so when trying to 'Automatically paste to to front most app', it's trying to paste to the Large Type window.

Perhaps there could be a workflow element, such as "Switch Apps", that could be used to return focus to whichever app had focus immediately prior to Alfred? Similar to performing a 'Cmd + Tab'...

This happens by default anyway, it's just when you use the Large Type, Alfred remains the active app (to show the Large Type).
