Open file action remove clipboard content

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I realized that when I run a workflow with includes an open file action it runs well but after running the workflow the clipboard content is modified and the name of the file is added to it. For example:

 

1. I copy to clipboard the word "Alfred"

2. I run an Alfred workflow to open in TextEdit a selected file in Finder called "document.txt"

3. The workflow works well and TextEdit open "document" file

4. I paste clipboard's content in TextEdit or any other app and it types "document" instead of "Alfred"

 

The same problem occurs when I use an Applescript to open files.

 

Im using the latest version(2.0.2)

 

Thanks in advance and excuse my limited English

I'm aware of this and have a ticket to look into it for a future release. I've moved this to noted for now as it's not really a bug, just a behavioural thing :)
