Re: Re-selecting a folder you have just used

Once you've moved the file, with LaunchBar still showing hit Command-B.

This shows recently accessed files, folders etc. and should show the folder you moved the file to, and be selected?

Re: Help with some JavaScript for an action

This is a great idea! I would like it to search for metadata in PDFs, not just file names. Is that easily done? Sure, just change the line from: var result = LaunchBar.execute('/usr/bin/mdfind','kind:pdf','name:' + string); to var result = LaunchBar.execute('/usr/bin/mdfind','kind:pdf' + string);

Help with some JavaScript for an action

I don't really know JavaScript and thought it would be a fun little exercise to try and make a LaunchBar action using it (learning some JavaScript along the way). The code I have at the moment searches Spotlight for PDFs and shows the results. If it doesn't find any results with the search term it s...

Re: [LB6 Action] Spotlight (Integrated) [UPDATED]

If it is not possible to do it with mdfind, the modified date could be got via applescript and the results can be sorted before they are sent to LaunchBar for display. Ah, sounds promising. How would I do that? Is it easy to do? It's possible to sort the selected items by date in LaunchBar with CMD...

Re: [LB6 Action] Spotlight (Integrated) [UPDATED]

…a few years later…

Is there any way to set the sort order of the results shown? For example sort by modified date, with newest modified at the top.

An AppleScript/action to show a list of other AppleScripts?

I want to create an AppleScript/action than when selected and run shows a list of other scripts to if possible. Say (for example) these are the scripts I want to show when I run the initial script: set script01 to (path to home folder as text) & "Scripts:Script 01.scpt" set script02 to...

Re: Freezing/Lock up issue

I've been having this problem for a while. I contacted support and they told me to try disabling indexing for any external drives.

LaunchBar showed my external Time Machine disk under mounted volumes, so I disabled it and since then LunchBar has felt much snappier.

Re: Actions fails in LB 6.1 Nightly

Thanks.

It would have been helpful if they'd reported this, either in the release notes, here on the forum, or at least somewhere :?

Re: Actions fails in LB 6.1 Nightly

Yes, I've noticed that any actions I've made where I enter text now fail in the latest beta.
I guess they changed something without letting us know :?
