Re: Can LaunchBar "see" aliases ?

Then you have to change the search scope from "Search Everywhere" to "Search in Specific Places". Searching for apps everywhere only works in conjunction with the LaunchServices database. In contrast, when you select "Search in Specific Places", you have to specify a li...

Re: Instant send

I'm glad to tell that we finally found a workaround for this nasty Mac OS X bug that caused Modifier Taps to fail under some circumstances. This bug can easily be triggered by invoking a keyboard shortcut which in turn creates a simulated keypress. For example, take this simple AppleScript tell appl...

Re: Instant send hot keys open LB but doesn't send items...

I'm referring to the Command-Space approach since this is the one that works with LaunchBar's default settings, without any custom changes in LaunchBar Preferences. The shortcut issue that you've mentioned is not strictly related to Instant Send. It's a problem caused by a bug in Mac OS X that affec...

Re: New Mac, new Launchbar

Can I just take the configuration files of my LB4 install, and assume LB5 is going to just pick up those files and carry on? Yes. Just copy these two items to your new machine: ~/Library/Preferences/at.obdev.LaunchBar4.plist ~/Library/Application Support/LaunchBar 4/ Then install and run LaunchBar ...

Re: Instant send hot keys open LB but doesn't send items...

OK, lets see what's going on. First you select some file in Finder, then you press and hold Command-Space to get that file sent to LaunchBar via Instant Send. Now you should see this: Screenshot1.png Note the orange arrow icon at the right end of the bar. It indicates that Instant Send is in progres...

Re: How Do I Index /Library/Webserver/Documents/

Just drag your /Library/Webserver/Documents folder to the sidebar of LaunchBar's index window (which can be opened with Command-Option-I). This will create a new indexing rule that indexes the contents of that folder.
