Re: Worflow file not indexed by Launchbar

aaaah, ok it turns out Launchbar only indexes files with the .workflow extension that were setup as services in Automator, not as workflows. Duh!

Worflow file not indexed by Launchbar

I created a new workflow in Automator and placed it in the

/Users/~/Library/Services

Every other workflow in that directory gets indexed by Launchbar but not the one I added !

Re: How to chain Launchbar actions

Nice, quitting applications via System events works!

The network location script looks good but what is the action name to actually change locations?

I tried activate and connect but they don't work.

Re: How to chain Launchbar actions

thanks, that worked for bluetooth.

Network locations are not an action in Launchbar and apparently not scriptable...

Quitting an app is an action but somehow passing an argument does not work.

Code: Select all

perform action "Quit Application" with string "Mail"


Any ideas?

How to chain Launchbar actions

I am looking to put existing launchbar actions and custom actions in a chain that can be executed with a single trigger.

Specifically, I want to:

- quit specific programs
- turn off bluetooth
- switch network location to a specific location

How can this be done?
