Instead of using flags as they are, which gets them squished, I recommend you pad them so they show rectangular. That’s simple to do with the Automation Task to crop images, by setting it to a square value (equal to the width) then allowing it to extend. Worked like a charm for the world flags. The state flags have something weird about them so padded them with imagemagick.

Also noticed: when doing ⌃↩ the text is “Copy this to the clipboard”. It’s not clear what “this” is, as related to ⌘↩ or just ↩. If I search !p ireland 75+ and press ↩, the text suggests it’s related to the USA. Is that the difference? Is ↩ always USA and ⌃↩ the specific one we’re looking at?


This workflow will be available later at https://alfred.app/workflows/giovanni/quickcensus/, but Ideally I’d like to describe the pasting options a bit better.
