Snip behaving oddly - I type one letter and it repeats [Fixed 2.4 b274]

I found an odd behavior using the "snip" function. I typed "snip" into the Alfred field and then began typing the keyword for the snippet I wanted. The hotkey was "nope" and I usually just type "snip n" and it shows up at the top of the list and I press enter and it pastes the desired text.

 

This time, I typed "snip n" and in the window "snip nn" was typed. I wondered if it was my "n" key but I tried several other letters and it double typed them after "snip." Of course, I could type in "snip" without it typing "ssnniipp" so it was only after typing "snip" that I got the double letters. A few other letters "snip d" for example, worked fine. I can type "snip" and then "nn" and then backspace and then "oo" and backspace and "pp" etc. so that it ends up spelling "snip nope" but then the snip with the keyword of "nope" doesn't come up. Other keywords do come up when I type "snip" and the other letters (b, c, d and a few more) that don't type double. 

 

Very strange.

If you could open Console.app and look for errors in there when seeing these double characters (you might need to expand out the little triangle on the left of the log messages to get the full error), and email this to info@alfredapp com, I should be able to work out what's going on for you :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Note that I chose to type "s" to activate snippet instead of "snip" since I used it a lot.

Hmm, there shouldn't be a null pointer in this situation, but I'll add a bit of code in to make this more robust. I'm going to move this into bugs to keep a better track of this, but expect improved behaviour in this in the next release.

 

For now, check your time and date format settings in OS X's preferences, as this is what looks like is indirectly causing an issue in Alfred.

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Also, if you don't mind, any chance you could email your snippets database to info@alfredapp com... I can take a look to see if there is any specific issues. You'll find this in:

 

Alfred.alfredpreferences/clipboard/snippets.alfdb

Andrew
