Clipboard on secondary monitor chooses wrong application window

Recommended Posts

It seems that clipboard picks the frontmost window for the previous application on the main screen, rather than the window that had focus when the clipboard was triggered.

 

To reproduce (with latest Alfred and Yosemite):

 

1. On a laptop with an external display

2. Open iTerm, with windows on both the internal and external displays

3. With focus in the iTerm window on the non-main display, trigger clipboard and select a snippet

4. The snippet is incorrectly pasted into the front-most iTerm window on the main display; rather than the iTerm window on the secondary display that had focus.

Do you have Alfred set to show on your active screen, in Alfred's Appearance > Options > "Show Alfred on"?

 

Cheers,
