It may just be easier to delete "Scripts" from your indexing rules. Once you do re-add them by going to New>Applications,Modules,Libraries>Scripts. Make sure you use the Options tab to specify scope as well. - LB Scripts: /Applications/Launchbar.app - Home Scripts: /Users/yourusername/Libr...

Feature Request: Use numbers to select items.

When searching for something in LB, it would be great to get a numbered list of items so I can use the number keys instead of the arrow key. Textmate does something similar so you can map a bunch of items to one keystroke.

Shift-Apple-F will select a file and put it in lauchbar. That will save you a few strokes.

Is this real memory or virtual memory? You can get this information from Activity Monitor.

I'm showing two instances of Launchbar
3 threads, 23Mb real, 401.33Mb virtual
1 thread, 92Kb real, 141.10Mb virtual

pbcopy and pbpaste are what you want.

To dump a detailed directory list to the clipboard, just type:
ls -al | pbcopy

You can then paste the contents of the clipboard to somefile using pbpaste:
pbpaste > somefile

Camino History Browsing Failing

LB4v2 suddenly stopped indexing my Camino history. I've tracked the bug down to a particular kind of URL. It can't be removed from the Camino history file which suggests it's malformed in some way. Good History // <!-- <mdb:mork:z v="1.4"/> --> < <(a=c)> // (f=iso-8859-1) &...

It seems to be using mork.pl(0.2).
I tyied to use mork.pm(0.3 multibyte supported version),
but it does not work well.

The "&" character is not URL safe to use, so Launchbar probably converts it to make sure it always works. You can find out more here: m Basically, changing the & -> &amp; should not change what webpage you get, so something else is going on. Try typing both URLs into Omniweb an...

Don, you have many options. I haven't used ARD in a while, but the easiest thing to do is make the change on your local application and copy it down to the client machines. If you aren't comfortable with scripting, then I'd try this on a few machines first and see if it works. You should also be abl...

This is trivial (especially for a sysadmin) to do with a script. Change the Info.plist on local machine to either hide or reveal LB. On remote machine, quit LB, copy the modified Info.plist to /Applications/LaunchBar.app/Contents/Info.plist, touch /Applications/LaunchBar.app, and relaunch LB. Anothe...

I think this would be hard to do, but QS compatibility would rock.
