Snippets with emoji character in 'name' do not sync [fixed b655]

Recommended Posts

Good day. If you add a snippet, and the 'name' field contains an emoji, it will not sync to other Alfred instances.

 

To replicate:

- Add a new snippet.

- In the 'name field', add an emoji character. The keyword can be whatever you want, and the snippet can be whatever you want.

- Close Alfred, allow a few moments to sync.

- Check other Alfred enabled device - snippet is not there.

 

To confirm:

- Return to first instance, rename the 'name' field from emoji character to normal text.

- Close, wait, sync.

- New snippet shows on different instance.

 

Version: 3, b652

Sync: Dropbox
OS: El Cap

Thanks for spotting, I'll fix this for the next release :)

If you update to the 3.0 b655 pre-release from Alfred's update prefs, newly added or edited snippets now have any non-syncable characters stripped from their names on saving :)

 

Cheers,

Andrew
