FR: calculator history & paste entire sum

I often find myself doing extended calculations, and wanting to document the workings (say in an email). My process often looks like this: - invoke the calculator `cmd-space, =` - type sum - select all, copy - enter, `shift-enter` to paste answer - cursor back to before answer, paste the equation fr...

Re: Select range from Clipboard History?

just confirmed this: - hit cmd-space - cmd-k to show the clipboard - click a clipboard entry: the start of the range you want - scroll through the list until you see the last selection you want, - shift click it - cmd-c to copy! The new combined clipboard entry appears at the top of the list, ready ...

Re: LB doesn't use 'Natural' scrolling

Thanks for the update! Jun 24, 2017 LaunchBar 6.9 (6144) m Hate to sound ungrateful, but the recent update is a bit of a backwards step for me... it's a small thing, but when scrolling a long list the new behaviour means: - I can't see the selection (it gets scrolled offscreen) - when i see the item...

Re: "LaunchBar has detected a problem with your OS X Clipboard"

I've only just started seeing this error: it's happened a handful of times, and is only resolved by logging out. I'm using Launchbar 6.5 on OSX 10.10.5, and the issue (probably coincidentally) began after I began using Dejal TimeOut v2.0a27. 5/11/2015 10:40:46.069 pm LaunchBar[948]: Internal Error: ...

as DaveMee said, rightArrow (or alt-rightArrow) to browse meta info, and copy the path from there (cmd-shift-c is paste)

Re: Clipboard history not maintained after restart

This happens for me after an abnormal restart.. just did a quick test with an intentional restart, and history was preserved, fwiw.. I'm trying to track down another error, along the lines of: "a problem has occurred with the system clipboard, please log out to fix" 5/11/2015 10:40:46.069 ...

Show current track in iTunes?

Hi, I can't find the 'Current Song' action listed in the documentation... am I missing something? I'm opening the LB index, selecting Actions and searching for 'itunes' and 'current', but not finding a relevant action.. m What I'd ideally like is a 'preview / rate current song' command' (there's one...

FR: allow me to tag items for broader search results

Help!! Problem: I have 130+ apps installed, and I use some very infrequently (and they're invaluable when needed!). I can't remember the name of 'that video app' I use once a year. Solution: Allow me to tag items in the index so that when I install the app, i can tag it 'video, encoder, terminal, wh...

Re: LB doesn't use 'Natural' scrolling

Even though the UX is a little janky with NaturalScrolling enabled, it satisfies the principle of leat surprise for me. I'd like to see two things: - a checkbox in Prefs > General (it's that basic!) - when natural scrolling is enabled, scrolling down the list should cause the selection to move down ...

got a reply from support, who advised: Can you please do the following: - Uncheck LaunchBar in the System Preferences > Security & Privacy tab > Accessibility - Uncheck ClipMerge in LaunchBar > Preferences > Clipboard History - enable ClipMerge again (You should see the yellow warning sign then)...
