Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Significant update, and good news. I have been in touch with ObDev via email, working with them to nail down bug reproduction, with good success. Although I don't know why ObDev isn't monitoring/participating here, I can at least confirm they are aware of this bug, that they can now (finally) reprod...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

I really sympathize with other users' frustration over this, and I am also getting a little concerned about ObDev's priorities. I can imagine more important bugs to fix as fast as possible, but not many. But I'm sticking it out. Although it's definitely inconvenient, my "workaround" works ...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

"Several"! Oh dear. Well, I am much happier knowing that they are aware and working on it. Thanks very much for updating us, bartv.

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Same problem here, I actually emailed them about this a few weeks ago and was told they weren't aware of any problems. Email them again and point to this thread. Clearly it’s a thing, but also probably not affecting all their users, and apparently not THEM. Someone else has started a ticket, and Ob...

I tested this immediately. Although it worked initially, the problem was back within a matter of minutes, just like with clearing the clipboard history or disabling and re-enabling it.

The bug remains fully reproducible on both of my Macs.

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

I think the problem perhaps exists when the clipboard history is at or near its limit. That’s consistent with my experimenting so far. I haven’t systematically tested it, but every time I have noticed the problem there’s been lots in the history, and every time I clear it out it’s fine… for a perio...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Okay, one more post on this. It's good news and bad news… The good news is that, at the moment, it looks like I've actually solved the problem, simply by toggling clipboard history off and on again. The bad news is that I doubt I actually have, because I am pretty dang sure I did that before, and I ...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Just to firm up this bug reporting a little more, some environmental factors… Important! Just confirmed I cannot reproduce this bug in a test account! Clipboard history and ClipMerge appear to work perfectly in a fresh user account. So this may be related to an interaction with another app, or corru...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Since reproducing at least one major aspect of this issue, I have settled into workaround for occasions when I need to be sure that I'm accumulating a clipboard history: I simply invoke the history after each copy. Since both actions have very familiar shortcuts, the friction is minimal. But it's st...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Clipboard History is far from the ONLY feature of LaunchBar that I use :wink: but it is arguably the most important. I use it almost constantly. Or rather, DID use it almost constantly: I have now been mostly living without it for a couple weeks, and it’s really frustrating.

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

I will also confirm that I cannot get this string into the clipboard history. “http://test.com/[CODE]” I have also made some progress on reproducing the error, and what I found helps to explain why I had some trouble “catching it in the act.” Here’s the thing: clipboard history is fine IF YOU CHECK ...

Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

Same. I came here tonight looking for forum posts on this topic and immediately found one. It's not just erratically nuking clipboard history items, but also sometimes the current clipboard contents, whatever I just copied. It's happening so frequently that I've abandoned reliance on the clipboard h...

Re: responsiveness in Mavericks

Update: I have now observed the same problem on multiple Macs. I have installed and used Mavericks and Launchbar on 7 separate Macs. Three of those Macs were basically out-of-the-box fresh, with hardly anything else running of installed. In all cases, LaunchBar responsiveness was obviously impaired ...

responsiveness in Mavericks

LaunchBar responsiveness was reduced for me after installing Mavericks. Suddenly, about 80% of the time, it was missing the first few characters of input after Search in LaunchBar activation. I’ve been using LB constantly for many, many years, so the problem was painfully obvious. It’s almost scary ...

Same problem, same solution: thanks, Matt! Really appreciate you doing the legwork on that one. ;-)
