Type Clipboard Workflow for Alfred App
Simple workflow to write the clipboard content in those situations where
⌘ → V doesn't work, typically in non Cocoa application dialogs. It has happened to me in older Flash versions, Intellij IDEA and a few others. You have to go and paste with right clicking the mouse or pad... Atrocious!!
After installing the workflow you have to setup the default keyboard shortcut, since Alfred does not auto-import
keyboard shortcuts on workflows. I use
⇧⌃⌥⌘ → V, since I don't use it that often.
Alternatively, you can trigger the typing with the
Just trigger the shortcut or keyword to type the clipboard content. There's a character cap of 500 characters, to avoid accidents, since the typing takes time depending on the length of the text. If you hit the cap, you'll hear a classic error sound.
Download the alfred-type-clipboard.alfredworkflow and import to Alfred 2.
