Re: suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

As I usually working on several program for paper writing, in my days with QS, I can assign F1-F10 for different applications, that way I switch between the applications instantly without any mouse involvement, that's just great. i do exactly the same thing with QS. until LB has the same functional...

Re: suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

tomeck - one function alone would make me use Quicksilver that i have not seen replicated in any other other launcher or macro application and that is the ability to access my Delicious bookmarks from Quicksilver directly. i've basically set up a trigger (ctrl-D in my case) to launch the Delicious b...

Re: suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

Quicksilver triggers are similar to macros or functions whereby you can create keyboard shortcuts, hotkeys or gestures for doing common things. some examples of how i use them: - ctrl-F opens a new finder window - ctrl-W brings up a quicksilver dialog that searches wikipedia (using this generic stri...

Re: Quicksilver switcher - A couple things I miss...

quicksilver is now working pretty nicely on snow leopard with the latest build b57. i thought i would let those here that may not have heard. i could not stick with LB for various reasons but mostly the lack of a trigger functionality.

ruflin - i am guessing its far from easy to replicate the Trigger feature of Quicksilver or else Launchbar would have come up with it.

Re: suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

i just tired spark but for some reason the shortcut created only works when the related application is active and not as a global hotkey.

Re: Quicksilver switcher - A couple things I miss...

i never realized how extremely valuable quicksilver triggers were until i lost them for the first few days after switching to snow leopard and having issues with QS getting it up and running but now that i have got it working again i am back in my OSX zone. in those few days that i contemplated drop...

Re: suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

i just took a look at dragthing's website as i was unfamiliar with it and it looks like overkill for my needs when coupled with launchbar. i've so far managed to get quicksilver up and running again on snow leopard and i hope that suffices for a good amount of time. thanks for the tip though.

Re: replicating Quicksilver's 'send directly' feature in LB

you're right in that mail.app does not have to be running yet it will still give you the 'mail sent' sound effect that is exactly like mail.app. its pretty impressive and i gather from your response that you have not found a way to do this yet. I'll second that, with uranium. I thought this feature ...

monitor file move using Launchbar

a couple of more days into my test and i decided to use LB to move files from my computer to a network drive. what happened was that it seems to be moving the files but there is no dialog or monitor tool where i can see activity or progress and so i could not tell if it was active and if the command...

replicating Quicksilver's 'send directly' feature in LB

i've been using Launchbar for two days now as a potential alternative to Quicksilver and have found one thing I miss very much and that is the Quicksilver feature called 'send directly' whereby you would type text (or grab a file) directly into QS then tab and type 'send directly' and tab again foll...

suggestion: add triggers to Launchbar

how hard would it be to add Quicksilver style triggers to Launchbar? This is the only thing keeping me from making the jump to Launchbar. I tried it out yesterday for a while and found that triggers were very important to my workflow. I've searched for solutions to this and realize that most of them...
