Re: Call Launchbar Actions from Terminal

Is there a way to trigger other LaunchBar things externally? For example, the search templates?

Re: Call Launchbar Actions from Terminal

Running actions using arbitrary keyboard shortcuts is currently not possible in LaunchBar, though. I just programmed Karabiner-Elements so that when I type the sequence "x,m" LaunchBar outputs "Hello World" in large type, no problem. That means I can trigger any LaunchBar from a...

Re: Call Launchbar Actions from Terminal

I'm making a keyboard interface using Karabiner-Elements. Currently, I have to make Alfred Workflows because it's easy to trigger them externally via key sequences programmed into Karabiner-Elements. But I'd prefer to go all-LaunchBar because I only use Alfred for its externally triggered Workflows.

Will this work with the built-in actions?

How to make the LaunchBar search window a frontmost app?

I use app-specific key remapptings in Karabiner-Elements. Those mappings become effective when a relevant app becomes a frontmost app. The problem is that when I open the LaunchBar search window, it is not recognized as a frontmost app. Is there any way to make LaunchBar a frontmost app so that it c...

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

After the update to 6.9.2, I'm still getting the failure-to-launch problem when activating via a modifier tap. I can still reproduce the failure-to-launch problem every time after a screenshot.

Re: High Sierra: Fullscreen windows not focused

My holy grail is this: one-keypress app switching. In any context, you longpress a key and the app you've assigned to that key gets switched to. LB currently offers 3-key switching: the 2-key activation followed by longpressing a 1-key abbreviation. It would be 2-key if LB's modifier tap can be fixe...

Re: High Sierra: Fullscreen windows not focused

I think a civil discussion of comparable apps' relative merits benefits both the users and the devs. We shouldn't be afraid to honestly relate our actual user experiences, which any intelligent dev should find quite valuable and not something to get defensive about. The devs can improve their sense ...

Re: Indexing more like Alfred?

The Alfred devs insist that using Spotlight offers significant CPU savings over LB's method. I wouldn't guess how much the user can perceive the impact on battery life, though. As for finding too many unwanted results, I do find that Alfred is very good at zeroing in on the things you really want. O...

I'm a fan of this theme. Can you make the subtitles appear white, too?

Re: Serious Issue: cmd-space does not always work

LB has now been launching after a screenshot no problem when using cmd-space. I reproduce the problem every time when using modifier taps, but the full keyboard shortcut seems to now be working, so maybe the Siri trick has that much effectiveness. It would be nice, though, if launching via modifier ...
