Ignore Apps in Clipboard overridden by paste as plain text hotkey

I just read and implemented your tip to create a workflow to paste from the clipboard as plain text, using a hotkey (I used Cmd + Shift + V as you suggested).

 

I then tried the tip to "Tell Alfred which apps to ignore", and dragged TextEdit into the relevant well. This worked as described, and something I copied in TextEdit didn't appear in Alfred's Clipboard History viewer. But if I used the Cmd + Shift + V hotkey it was pasted — and then appeared in the history.

 

Surely this isn't the behaviour you intended, since using the "paste as plain text" hotkey will inadvertently add the copied text from an app which Alfred's Clipboard is meant to be ignoring.

 

I'd be interested to know what you think.

 

Thanks

This is now fixed in 2.8.1 b417 pre-release available in Alfred's update prefs.

Cool. Thanks for sorting that.

No problems, thanks for spotting this... the fix was actually a more holistic fix which prevents Alfred from re-classifying items in the clipboard as from Alfred when using the clipboard output object (i.e. plain text paste), so great spot! :)

 

Cheers,

On analysis, I'm actually going to back this change out for now as it introduces some unintended consequences for normal operation.

 

It's a really interesting bug, and one which I am going to look at in greater detail in the future.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
