LaunchBar 6 - context menu shortcut?

First, congratulations! LaunchBar 6 is a welcome update, and the new UI is beautiful. The only thing that's missing for me (apart from a manual/help file) is a keyboard shortcut for LaunchBar's own context menu. [Ctrl] + [Right arrow] used to show the context menu, but that's not working anymore. I ...

Re: Instant Send and Quickey for Launchbar stop working

Other than OP, I would never think of abandoning LaunchBar for Alfred - but I experienced a similar problem. I had upgraded my Mac to Mavericks when it came out, and LaunchBar was forking fine (as it always does; this is one of the most reliable pieces of software I have ever used). However, yesterd...

Send existing bookmarklets through LaunchBar?

Apologies if this has been done before / asked / answered on the forums; I couldn’t find it. I have built quite a nice collection of JavaScript bookmarklets over the years. Now I had hoped that I could send such a bookmarklet (which is indexed by LaunchBar, along with the other Safari bookmarks) to ...

With hidden LB dock icon, strange app switching behavior

Hey guys, Here is an odd problem I'm seeing after having switched LB's dock icon off in Preferences. This happens quite often, but not always. - Let's say I have applications „A“ and „B“ running. „B“ is in the foreground, i.e. its menu bar and window(s) are visible. - I invoke LaunchBar and use it t...

Re: Feature Request: Google Chrome/ Chromium

Is there any chance this functionality can be extended to Chromium, even in an experimental & unsupported manner? Yes Oh really? This is insanely great. Actually, I do have boatloads of browsers of my Mac: Safari, Firefox 4.0, 5.0 and super-experimental “Aurora”, Chrome, Opera 11...), but my wo...

That combo doesn't seem to work here ...

Thanks for the tip, but this combo (LaunchBar and Translator Free) doesn't seem to work for me, although both work fine on their own. I.e., I downloaded/installed Translator Free from the App Store, and it does what it should: I can drag text to its menubar icon and get a translation. However, the t...

See what the App Store did for Evernote

OK, I started this "LaunchBar should be on the Mac App Store" and I'm still hesitant to tell the gifted people at Objective Development what to do with their business - they might prepare a version for the App Store, anyway. But if not ..: Here is an impressive story about what the App Sto...

LaunchBar should be on the Mac App Store

I love LaunchBar. I have bought it and couldn't imagine using a Mac without it. And I think more people should see the light. Right now, the Mac App Store is the hottest place to sell OS X software. Millions of people - who otherwise wouldn't hunt around the web for interesting tools - now have a ch...

Re: Feature request: delay rebuild-index on launch + low-prioriz

+1.

LaunchBar is the most important piece of software on my Mac by far, but the delay until the system becomes responsive is odd.

Re: Multiple engines on one search?

Well, in case of Safari this is actually a no-brainer, since Safari's implementation of the open location command properly handles URLs contaning spaces and other non-URL characters: Ha! Excellent. Works with Chrome (or Chromium, in my case) as well. Umlauts are properly encoded/handed over as well...

Re: Multiple engines on one search?

When spaces come into the equation it does not work as well as they need to be resolved and replaced with the proper tags or whatever they are called for AppleScript to understand them. This can be done, but it's quite a task. I may be wrong, but I hope/think it's not a big deal. You would just nee...

Re: Open/show specific day in iCal (inline or within iCal)

I'd like to support/bump this: Being able to add events in iCal from LB is really nice, but at least for me, it would be even more important to see calendar events in the same way I can see contact details. I.e., when I select my "Business" Calendar in LB, I'd like to see the titles (and p...
