Re: Force a custom action to open a *specific application* for a certain item

The best way to do this is to launch it yourself in the script. When selecting an item, have the action launch it using

```
LaunchBar.execute("open -a <path to program> <file to open>");

```

Re: Launch Bar and macOS Sierra

Well, I've been able to get Launchbar to behave better by removing all directory scanning. So, I'm just using it for the actions right now.

Re: Launch Bar and macOS Sierra

Launchbar hangs for me as well on macOS X Siera. Randomly on launching, it just sits there in front of everything. After several MINUTES, it comes back and launches the last thing I had done. Therefore, I am using it less and less.

Re: Quiver Snippet Manager action

I just did a major update to this action. The new features are: 1) Paste through Keyboard Maestro (expanding the %| cursor placement macro). 2) Added the next Handlebar helper for doing relative dates (see the new help file). 3) Added the ability to hook into the Handlebar template engine by adding ...

List Processor Action

Just created @launchbar List Processor Action and List Processor - Options action. Download it from GitHub: http://bit.ly/1RwOqEJ

It allows you to sequence through a list of items. You use the List Processor - Options to select the type of separator, position in the list, and a forwards/backwards toggle.

Re: Quiver Snippet Manager action

I just updated this action to allow for alternate versions of the same snippet by changing the inserted variables. It also has a new companion action Quiver Helper. You can get both actions from my GitHub repository listed in the first post. Let me know if you find any issues with the action. Thanks.

Re: [Action Request] Send email to one address with subject text from LB

If you have an AppleScript file already, you can run it from an action using Launchbar.executeAppleScriptFile(<path to file>, <arg1>, <arg2>,...) in the action. The Action Editor will create the skeleton file for the action. By adding the file to the action in the ActionEditor, you path would just b...

Re: Quiver Snippet Manager action

Just updated them both for a bug. Please redownload them and re-install them. I still can't get the auto update thing to work. One of the bugs caused the Defaults data to always be kept and not the individual snippet's data file. Also, you can now define the boolean "expandPlain" in your d...
