Clipboard isn't catching copied items


Recommended Posts

The clipboard doesn't catch any (plain) text I copy form various sources for a while and various versions.

 

What you were doing when the issue happened

- Copy (plain) text from different sources (TextEdit, Google Chrome or Sublime Text 3)

Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action

- Yes, even after reboots or restarts of Alfred.

Include any screenshots that might help us

- v2.3 (264)

Include your OS X version

- 10.9.2

These sorts of issues are usually down to OS X permissions issues, where Alfred is unable to write to his clipboard db. If you quit Alfred and then repair disk permissions in OS X's Disk Utility.app. Secondly, open Terminal and delete the clipboard db just in case there is some corruption using this command:

 

rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Alfred\ 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb

 

Then start Alfred again and all should be good!

 

Hope this helps! :)
