Selected file- or folder name get deselected while in Alfred Clipboard History

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

this ist my first article... I searched the forum, but found no similar question...

 

Yesterday, I switched to Yosemite. I Use Alfred 2.5 (299) on an other Mac and sync all my preferences with dropbox. Most things work well, but..

 

- I select a file a second time to highlight and select the name to change it

- I click ALT-CMD-Space to activate the Clipboard History to use a saved phrase

- the file get deselected and I can't rename it

- in Mavericks, the filename is still selected and I'm able to rename it with a ENTER

 

I hope, you understand what I mean ;-)

 

Is it a bug or is it my fault?

 

Kind regards, Andreas

The behaviour is the same whether you're using Yosemite or Mavericks; As soon as you give focus to anything else (whether it's Alfred, Finder or any other app), OS X will stop the file name from being editable. It's OS X behaviour to protect you from editing file names by mistake.

 

Your best bet is to pick the saved phrase from Alfred's Clipboard before selecting the file you want to edit. :)
