Launchbar calculator: division with rounding?

Is there a function in the Launchbar calculator that will round a division to nearest integer? I stumbled on a function that used a pipe between parentheses, but have forgotten it and can't find it by googling. If I use Int(n/m), it always rounds down. Also is there a way to force a numeric result w...

Re: Does LB6 launch Safari in background on Mavericks?

Making 'Current Safari Page' active won't, on it's own, launch Safari; but if you start to type it in in LB, until it appears in the bar, *without* hitting return, it will launch Safari.

OS 10.10.5 and LB 6.8

Re: Does LB6 launch Safari in background on Mavericks?

That seems to work — thanks! I've even been able to turn on some of the actions (like Google search, New Text Document, various Convert text options) without trouble, so far anyway.

Might be able to whittle this down a bit.

Re: Does LB6 launch Safari in background on Mavericks?

Has anyone found a solution to this problem? Still happens, on all my computers, and appears to wake them up from sleep.

Only happens when LB6 is on. Nothing in the Actions folder.

How to get rid of 1Password warning on launch

Hi — Since installing LB 6.6 (6126), every time I launch LB it gives a warning about changing 1Password settings. But I don't use 1Password, so there are no settings to change (and not in my Library preferences folder either). Is there a simple way to disable the warning once and for all? Thanks. Vi...

Re: Create text file in selected folder?

That's super, thanks.

The old script also allowed me to create new files from other programs, using template documents. Is that still possible?

Thanks.

best,

Re: Create text file in selected folder?

I love this action. But the script doesn't seem to be working with LB 6.3. Does the script need to be modified?

Or is this something that has been superseded by a new feature?

Thanks.

Re: Does LB6 launch Safari in background on Mavericks?

It occurs for me without any disk ejection. I have repeatedly tested leaving nothing open overnight and leaving only LB open, and consistently Safari is open in the morning if LB is, and not otherwise.

Does LB6 launch Safari in background on Mavericks?

LB6.0.1, Mavericks 10.9.3

Safari is *not* my default browser, not launched on login, and I rarely use it. But I find it is open and running in the background, with only LaunchBar running and not when it's not.

Is this just something to live with? Or is there a setting I should be aware of?

Re: KM opens last LB Search Template

It looks like this is a question of LB6's responsiveness.

If I add a small pause (.001 seconds) into the KM script, between the hot key combination and the abbreviation for the search template, everything works fine. This was not necessary on LB5.

Firefox bookmarks not accessing all bookmarks

LB 6.0.3, Firefox 30, OS 10.9.3 LB6 has a rule built in for Firefox bookmarks, but it is not picking up all bookmarks, even after updating rule. (Specifically it misses some bookmarks in a folder under the Bookmark toolbar. Not sure if there are others.) As a workaround, I have exported my bookmarks...

GreaseMonkey add-on was the culprit.

Re: Failure to open URL on Firefox if latter is closed

Problem disappeared on resetting Firefox. Probably a conflict with an add-on. Sorry for the trouble.
