Re: mysterious numbers

If you mean this (see screenshot), you can select the action by pressing the corresponding number key.

A long press of the number key will execute the action without further confirmation.

Re: Huge delays/lags in 6.7.2 (6136)

Similar here. After system startup, the first LB window freezes for about 15 seconds. (Afterwards everything fine.)

I’m seeing this since the first Sierra version, if I recall correctly.

Re: Indexing Numbers documents

No problems here with Numbers documents. Individual files are found and the category (Numbers Spreadsheets) is working, too.

Are you sure you haven’t excluded the folder containing your Numbers documents from the index?

Re: Executing Swift Script

Have a pretty simple Swift 3 script I'd like to execute from LaunchBar, but it treats it as any other file. Option-return simply opens it in Xcode. Any ideas on what I might be missing? I’m seeing the same behavior. However, when I change the script extension from .swift to .command it gets execute...

Re: So should I install v6 or wait?

In addition to what I said above there is another thing that you should be aware of when you are seeing complaints about a new release of any software: Often people make the following assumption: If (there is an issue with the new version of program X) and if (that issue is not present with the prev...

Re: Use LaunchBar with your keys

One should add that “Karabiner” is just the new name of KeyRemap4MacBook which is around since many years. Indeed a very nice app.

Some of my favorites are:

- Vim Emulation
- Browsing Mode
- Shift to parenthesis (very nice!)
- R-Shift + L-Shift to Capslock
- Spacebar to Option

Re: Missing "show in context" shortcut in LB6.1

I can hit Left Arrow to display the selected item in its folder context (and then go up further in the folder hierarchy with Left Arrow again), or cmd-Left-Arrow to display it in a “vertical” folder hierarchy. It’s the same with recent items (cmd-B) or with the very nice “Recent” actions by @nbjahan...

Re: Actions fails in LB 6.1 Nightly

Thanks a lot for sharing!

I already thought the nightly was broken and I suspended my not-working actions till they would have fixed it…
Heck, yes, if they change something that breaks your actions a sticky in this forum would be a nice move. But I’m not sure if they know about this forum ;)

Re: Can we change the result subtitle for custom actions?

If you mean the result subtitles (as you say in the title of your thread), these can indeed be changed/created with the “subtitle” key in the output of your script. But if I interpret your screenshot correctly it rather shows the category subtitles of the actions (not the result subtitles). I didn’t...

Re: So should I install v6 or wait?

Many changes but no game-breaking issues so far. (For me.) > Lots of negative comments going on. This is normal. Users who experience problems are much more likely to post than users who don’t. Let’s say you have 1000 users, 10% of them have major or minor issues and maybe 30% of them are posting he...

Is there a way to get the document that is opened in the frontmost window of the active process without using the mouse? Example: I’ve downloaded a PDF to the Downloads folder and opened it in Skim. Now I want to move the PDF with LB to another folder: 1) I launch LB and type the abbreviation of the...

Re: LB doesn't use 'Natural' scrolling

Yes, so much better now with Natural Scrolling. Thanks for the additional setting. I can understand Obdev’s reasoning in favor of the “old” scrolling as being more natural; this is —in theory— true while speaking of the movement of the selection . But when we have some more hits than the window can ...
