Re: My Google Search Template doesn't show, help

The strange thing is that even when I go into the Search Template "folder" in LaunchBar and type "G", the "Google Search" template I created doesn't show up. It does appear with "s" (but not "search"). I've renamed this item entirely now to "Sea...

My Google Search Template doesn't show, help

Google Search template isn't working??!? I've been using the Google search template forever as probably my biggest use of LaunchBar. However, since yesterday (I can't think of any specific updates), when I start typing "goo" this search doesn't show up. Then I type "google" and l...

Clipboard History not working in Word for Mac 2016

I just purchased Office for Mac 2016, and was editing a Word document when I discovered that the clipboard history isn't working. Regardless of which entry I pick from the history, I always get the last entry cut from the clipboard. I tested this in a blank Word document, in case there was something...

Re: A couple of basic questions

Not clear what #1 means. In the preferences for LaunchBar, you can set the keyboard shortcut used to bring up the window. I think the default is Cmd-Space. For #2, it may have to do with Launchbar indexing everything. (I just tried "lib" and it found a couple library directories, including...

Re: Feature request: Robust and stable index

Agreed! I also find that LaunchBar forgets my abbreviations - but not consistently. I created a new custom search template (and abbreviation), and any time I need to reboot my machine, it seems that my abbreviation has been forgotten. (Half the time it also loses my search template. I add it back, a...

Newbie trick: accidentally re-assigned Abbreviation

Hello gang- I managed to assign the abbrevation "Google" to the wrong google search - I assigned it to Google Exact String instead of the basic Google. Is there a way to remove other abbreviations and tell Launchpad that I REALLY REALLY want my "Google" abbreviation to point back...

Abbreviation for a website

Hello- How do I create a PERMANENT abbreviation that takes me to a specific website URL? I have a website I visit a couple times a month. I love setting an abbreviation to that site, so I don't have to bother with bookmarks or other mechanisms that make me click more than I have to do. However, it s...
