Unable to execute imessage

Suddenly can no longer open Messages from Launchbar by "launching" a phone number. Error message: "Unable to execute AppleScript at path /Applications/Launchbar.app/Contents/Resources[...] "Error -43: File not found" No changes I made. LB 6.9 (6144) OS 10.11.6 (not the most ...

Re: Mod() arithmetic?

:) Found it. Need a pipe character between the goober and the weevil:

mod(31|11) = 9

I could not find this function in the Help. There is a list of _shortcuts_ for functions, but no list of functions (that I could find).

Mod() arithmetic?

When using LaunchBar's built-in calculator, typing "mod" brings up the function "mod()", which looks just like what I want: modular arithmetic (input two integers, outputs the remainder after dividing). But I haven't stumbled on the secret syntax. How can I make this work?

Re: Select range from Clipboard History?

not sure if i'm missing something, but I can cmd-space, cmd-k to keep the clipboard active, and click / scroll using the trackpad, then shift-cmd-v to paste.. Thanks for replying. The functionality I am looking for is: select a range of items in LB's Clipboard History that is larger than what is sh...

LB Application Switching: select window?

Looking into using LB as an application/window switcher. The built-in application switching works, with a draw-back that was noted in these discussions in 2011: it does not un-minimize a minimized window when switching to an application for which all windows are minimized. • Can this be changed to m...

Re: [LB6 Action] Keyboard Maestro Macros

Late to the party, but wanted to say: This is FANTASTIC! Thank you. For anyone, like me, who does not "get it" right away: - This is an LB "Action". It is not an LB "Rule". This means that LB does not create or keep an index of your KM macros (it is created new each tim...

Re: Select range from Clipboard History?

ratty — thanks again. I use Keyboard Maestro every day, but because I purchased LB first and foremost as a clipboard manager, I have ended up using LB to stack all my clippings, and have my macros pick them from LB's stack as needed. I should port my clipboarding to KM — among much, it allows multip...

Re: Select range from Clipboard History?

Thanks ratty — staging works — after a fashion. I appreciate your work-around. I can ⇧+arrow to extend the selection. I _can not_ ⇧+click to extend the selection when the selection I want extends past the currently shown items in Launchbar. This was the essence of my question. Why not? What is the a...

Select range from Clipboard History?

I feel as though I'm overlooking something obvious. How can I select a range of items in LB's Clipboard History? The focus shifts as one scrolls the list, so "{shift}-click" is restricted to the number of items displayed (I can't click an item not displayed). I would like to do the equival...

Re: Unit Conversion (Weight, Temperature, etc.)

Better late and all that … :D

These get entered in LaunchBar: "Index ▹ Show Index ▹ Search Templates (UTF-8) ▹ Index ▹ Add". Paste the description in the name column, and the x-launchbar part in the Details column.

Initial config and use.

1. I is newbee. Well, actually I've been using LB for some time and am quite comfortable with launching apps and using the clipboard history. 2. But I can't really get my mind around LB. I've never used it to transfer an item -- other than a Web search term or a clipping -- from one program to anoth...
