Re: [Action Request] Translate via DeepL

‌ For DeepL now you can also use Translate Shell . The author has added support for DeepL just a couple of days ago. You can easily install Translate Shell via Homebrew : brew install translate-shell Translate Shell has the advantage that it works with all major engines (Google, Bing, DeepL, Yandex ...

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

But they kept charging too much for updates with too little, and Alfred got better and better, for free. Now I don't really have any compelling reason to go back to Launchbar, free or not. Wow, this is heavy stuff. Are you sure you are really using LaunchBar?! Not only 10% of LaunchBar? I mean, com...

Re: LaunchBar 6 using staggering amount of memory

Running LB here with 200–300 MB, for years. The point is you have to exclude the stuff from your index that you don’t need . For example, it would be complete madness to index the entire Home folder, or the entire ~/Library folder, down to every file. Make your selection. LB’s purpose is not to find...

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

This thing is really hard to track down. Recently I had 3 or 4 days in a row where I haven't seen the issue not even a single time. With no system reboot before or after that period, and with varying usage frequency of LaunchBar.

If the issue makes people cleaning their keyboards more often … then it's a feature, not a bug :D

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

[…] it's disappointing that LaunchBar is also unreliable with a different activation method. Well, for the moment I would say that LaunchBar seems to be unreliable… After a (quick) search on the forum I have the impression that we are the only ones who are observing the issue. This may be a pointer...

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

Thanks for your post. I'm mainly using modifier taps (e.g. Single Shift to launch LB, Single Command for the Snippets) but I also noticed that sometimes the first tap does nothing, whereas the second one always succeeds. Until now I thought that I was just too slow (if a "tap" is tapped to...

Probably he was outside, smoking, when you opened the app for him.

Re: I just don’t get it!

PS: And the manual is so complex it would take me a week to read and try to comprehend it all. I don't think it is necessary to comprehend the entire manual in the first week (assuming with "manual" you mean the LB5 Help docs ). I'm using LB for many years and still I'm discovering new thi...

Re: I just don’t get it!

I've been testing Alfred, but he seems to have a learning disability. :( Don't think I can hire him on full-time. LOL, have you tried to clear the little knowledge he has collected and start from blank?: Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 12.17.48-pty-fs8.png Spotlight gets it, so WTF is Alfred's problem? :...

Re: [LB6 Action] Spotlight (Integrated) [UPDATED]

But at that occasion I noticed that my “normal” Spotlight search is currently buggy, too. (That is, it finds some mails but it displays neither filename nor subject.) […] I will reboot at the next occasion, to see if this helps. Update: I rebooted the Mac this morning. Spotlight is working normally...

Re: [LB6 Action] Spotlight (Integrated) [UPDATED]

Hi Christian, if I enter anything that is also the subject of an email the suggestions show only emails as .emlx files and the file's name (a cryptic number..). Yes, I’m seeing the same here. It shows the mail messages by file name as found on disk. But at that occasion I noticed that my “normal” Sp...

I guess it’s related to the ‘open location’ bug.

Re: DuckDuckGo searches not opening in default browser

I remembered that I updated to FF 53 or so only recently. (I don’t use that browser normally, just for testing webpage compatibility). And the pref page of FF gives me this (i.e. nothing): Screenshot 2017-05-25 at 22.38.14.png Not sure if it is related, and honestly I don’t see how it could be relat...
