Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

SORRY - I retract all I said about Quicksilver working better. It was perfect for the first few days. Then, it happened once (I had to hit the space bar twice with the command key down before Quicksilver appeared). Then it happened again, and the next day, again and again. And today it seemed to be...

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

Yes, one of the windows in Quicksilver still has the little resize thumb button in the lower right hand corner. I think that means it is very old, not a Cocoa window. Since Quicksilver is open source, maybe the LaunchBar developers will look at how Quicksilver implements its keyboard shortcut trigge...

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

I never did get around to trying it on another Mac user account in the last six weeks. But I did notice that LaunchBar performance is good for the first 10 minutes or so after I log in. Then it quickly deteriorates and works poorly as I described in my original post. Well, I've found a solution whic...

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

Yes, certainly there could be other factors causing LaunchBar to behave this way. I'm still using QuicKeys. It looks like features added to LaunchBar in the last few years might make it able to replace QuicKeys. I should look into that. Yes, I can test on another Mac, or on another Mac account. It's...

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

Thank you, Tom. I ws not aware of Modifier Taps, however it's disappointing that LaunchBar is also unreliable with a different activation method. I'd been wondering if maybe I've not been waiting long enough (although zero wait should be required) between hitting the command key and hitting the spac...

Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

For many months, I've thought that there was something wrong with either my cmd or space key, because LaunchBar would only activate and show its window about 90% of the time. This has caused many errors in my work. For example, I've found text files that contain extraneous character sequences such a...

Re: plugin support

I don't think that an HTML file containing all Delicious (or whatever) bookmarks would be useful because when it showed up in the search results and the user clicked it, Launchbar would hit that html file, which would display the list of bookmarks in your default web browser and then you'd need to f...

I got it now. There were two problems. First, I was entering my documents into a Custom List instead of using the pre-made "Documents" list. Second, the reason why Passwords.cwk was not showing when I typed "P" is because I had to "prime the algorithm" by first typing s...

Now find the file in LaunchBar. If LaunchBar doesn't find it via 'p' or 'password' or a similar abbreviation, navigate to it with the arrow keys. Thanks, but I must be really not getting it. When I hit cmd-space-p, I get a list of 63 items in The Launch Bar. 50 applications + 13 Safari bookmarks. E...

Custom Shortcuts. How to make them work?

I'm still using LaunchBar 3 because I have not yet figured out a way to import my LaunchBar 3 shortcuts into LaunchBar 4. Today, I decided to bite the bullet and start entering them manually, but even when I enter a "Custom List" item manually, it still doesn't work. STEPS TO REPRODUCE: Op...

There's more....

That's great, Norbert. But it doesn't answer my question. Let me be more specific... 1. I have several dozen document files that I added to my list of items to be scanned, and none of them are listed in the Configuration when I use Launch Bar 4. Do I have to re-add all of these manually, to a Custom...

Update from v3 Blows Away All My Prefs and Abbreviations?

I just updated from LaunchBar 3.2.12 to the latest version 4.2 beta 2. I did so by quitting LaunchBar, trashing it, dragging in the new version and launching it. Looks nice, but, to my dismay, the new version did not pick up my preferences and has no memory of my past keyboard abbreviations. Needles...
