Re: Clipboard history items disappearing

And LaunchBar is far too valuable to me to abandon it because of one glitchy feature, no matter how nasty, as long as most of the functionality remains as great as it has always been — and of course it does. As exasperating as this situation is, ObDev has been an amazing member of the Mac dev commu...

Re: Missing built in omnifocus action

Hi, I don't know what exactly you mean: I know only the "OmniFocus 2: Send to Inbox" Service which can be invoked from LB, but opens the quick capture window. Which is useless, since it can be achieved with a shortcut anyway. If you want to do so, open settings window (call LB and press ⌘+...

Re: Indexing more like Alfred?

Well, the disadvantage in LB is that you have to configure your Index. The advantage is that you get a spot-on Index, unlike the mess Spotlight produces. Consider my git folders as an example - I am adding them with one level below, so I can get all the project folders with a search in LB. What I do...

Re: Selecting Items in Launchbar

No, but you can use vim-style navigation with HJKL, by pressing a pre-defined modifier key.

Re: How to exactly move multiple files ?

Hi,

the same way as before:
- select your files
- press TAB
- start typing the name of the target folder until it appears
- press enter

A list with possible operations on files will be presented.

Re: Pause iTunes for X minutes

I think you could easily write an action, with JS/Applescript. It should pause itunes, then run a countdown with time value from your input and after it runs out let itunes play again. Look here for a code example: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/creating-a-timer-with-applescript.1212456/#post-1...

Re: calendar: unable to interpret input?

Assuming, that you have write access to your calendar: you should separate with @ . For example: meeting @ home @ 7/13/15 10:00 works perfectly. Since entering @ is somehow annoying, you can just hit [Tab] instead, LB will insert them for you. For more details: https://www.obdev.at/resources/launchb...

Re: Retype delay to infinity?

My suggestion would be to set it as short as you can and just retype. The reasons are: - most of the time you will find what you look for after 2 or 3 letters. It makes no sense to delete and retype again. - In actions, which request complex input you have unlimited time to type and correct. It is j...

Re: Is this product live?

+1 They should finally hire someone for community support, if the devs have no intention to do it by themselves. This is the official forum, but is there any question or request answered by developers? Why even bother to make support for self-written actions, if you don't even want to deliver an ext...

Re: Perform a web search on multiple search engines simultan

Not happening, sadly. The support of community is basically not existent in ObjDev. Documentation and tutorials are another matter. This is, maybe, the reason, why they have lost such a big pie of market share to Alfred. It is a shame, in my opinion, because Alfred is a simpler product with a superi...

Re: Timer LB6

Well, another question then:

there is an extension for alred2: http://geekzone.philosophicalzombie.net ... /eggtimer2

I looked into it, and it seems to be built mostly around a bunch of shell scripts and some system calls for notification. How difficult is it to port something like that to LB6? Does anyone have a experience?

Re: Running script with a shortcut

Ha, was a stupid question, figured the answer out by myself: make a service in automator, which runs the desired shell script and assign a shortcut. :)
