Alfred 4.5

Running with Crayons has published Alfred 4.5 with the new Universal Actions feature for Powerpack users, enabling you to take any text, URLs, or files and perform actions on them from anywhere on your Mac using the Universal Action hotkey. Alfred includes over 60 default actions, such as copying to your clipboard, saving as a snippet, extracting URLs from a block of text, and more.

Alfred 4.5 also now recognizes keypad number keys as special when using Dispatch Key Combo objects in Workflows and Remote, limits significant digits in the calculator to prevent floating-point rounding issues in macOS 10.15 Catalina and macOS 11 Big Sur, and updates the internal Alfred URL parser to correctly recognize empty authority based URLs. (Free for basic functionality, £29 for Powerpack, 4.9 MB, release notes, macOS 10.11+)
