Re: Instant Send does not seem to work

It works on 10.12.6 but it has gotten SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW...

Also, I use it a lot to highlight a word, then instant-send that word to Merriam-Webster online dictionary, and when I hit MW (for Merriam-Webster) it can take up to 10 seconds or so to do what I want. It used to be a lot faster.

Re: Clipboard issue where last item copied is not pasted

Seems like my Mac Pro has been doing that occasionally since long before I started using LB (or Sierra, or Yosemite, or ...gosh, System Seven?)

I just thought it was some weird glitch in the OS.

Re: Clipboard History problem - copied items not stored

For what it's worth, if any of you are looking for the functionality of the LB "ClipMerge" feature, and you're working with text, check out Microsoft Word's so-called "Spike" function. It concatenates multiple text selections into one clipboard, and allows you to paste it all at ...

Re: Clipboard History problem - copied items not stored

Just tried copying one item and then appending nine more items with ClipMerge on my Macbook Air 7,2 under Sierra 10.12.6 and got the following behavior: 1. The first time I tried it, I didn't get the "clip" sound until the 3rd or 5th clip, and when I got to the seventh clip, MS Word crash...

Re: Word –> Recent Documents?

Thank you, VQV.

Now that I've upgraded to Sierra, Word 2008 is fatally broken, so I won't be using MS products anymore, thankfully. I appreciate your help, though.

Re: LaunchBar 6 using staggering amount of memory

kernel here is using 1.6 GB and LB is using 545 MB, but I have 32 GB in this Mac Pro 5,1 under Sierra 10.12.6 so I'm not too concerned...

Re: Clipboard History problem - copied items not stored

Seeing the same thing here using LB 6.9.1 on Mac Pro (2010) under 10.12.6 To moderator(s): Sorry, I did actually search for this topic (by searching for "ClipMerge") before starting a new thread on it today ... and before seeing this thread. Please merge or delete my other thread if necess...

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

...LaunchBar would only activate and show its window about 90% of the time... I am also getting this behavior on my 2010 Mac Pro under 10.12.6 and using the standard Cmd-Space keystroke combination. I'm not sure it happens about 10% of the time (I've only been messing with LB for a few weeks so far...

ClipMerge only saves a few clips - How to fix?

Hello, all, I often copy blocks of text from large documents on the web and paste them into Word or text documents to compile research for writing, and I thought ClipMerge would be really handy for that. However, I find that, with no apparent rhyme or reason, ClipMerge will only add a handful (the n...

Re: Word –> Recent Documents?

Or just bypass the Contacts app in LaunchBar entirely by typing the contact's name when you activate LaunchBar. That didn't work, either (which is why I tried the roundabout route of RightArrowing through Contacts), which suggests to me that the names in Contacts aren't indexed. I'll look at trying...

Re: Word –> Recent Documents?

OK, well, I figured out that I need to highlight "Word Documents" and then RightArrow into that category ... and then I can search for Word Documents by typing the name of the document. But applying the same logic to Contacts doesn't work. If I invoke LB, then type C to get Contacts, then ...

Word –> Recent Documents?

Hello, all, Brand new user of LaunchBar here. I want to see if I like the software before buying – and I'm having some trouble seeing what's so great about it yet – so I bought "Take Control of LaunchBar" book to try to get it to work. Following the instructions in the book, I tried to lea...
