Please let me know if it resolves your problem.


Thanks for your prompt efforts. Unfortunately, v677 doesn't fix the problem. I still can’t eject Espionage volumes.

Thank's for the reply. Hope you will find a way to fix this.

Re: Problems with Espionage's symbolic links

I had a chance to discuss these issues a bit further with Greg, the developer of Espionage. Here is his interim analysis: I'm fairly sure this is an issue with LaunchBar, it should be able to eject Espionage's unlocked folders, because it the unlocked folders do show up in its results as "Mount...

Re: Gumtree custom search

Almost got it! A search for "coffee" works 100% (so, single term), but a search for "coffee grinder" enters a search for coffee%20grinder and results in the following url: http://capetown.gumtree.co.za/f-coffee-20grinder-Classifieds-W0QQKeywordZcoffeeQ2520grinderQQisSearchFormZt...

Re: Gumtree custom search

Never used Gumtree but try to "ignor" the first keyword like this http://capetown.gumtree.co.za/f-house-Classifieds-W0QQKeywordZ*QQisSearchFormZtrue In this example the (first) keyword was "house" but it will be replaced automatically from the Gumtree search engine when searching...

Re: Feature Request: "Open With" option

Press Tab to initiate “Open with…”; type the name of the desired application and hit return. That's it.

Re: Feature request: Remove style from items in the clipboard

… but in most (of my) situations, we need to have the option to paste without it. It would be great to add a similar function in LB as "Paste and Match style" for items in the history. Typically that can be done by pasting as plain text. This could be your default action (tick the box &qu...

AppleScript Editor

Than you have to save the script to an indexed folder (typically the actions folder found in the library: /Library/Application Support/LaunchBar/Actions/).

Re: Lost ability to append to file

I believe that this only works with text (txt) and plain rtf-files. I might be mistaken but I can't remember other than the append text command.

Re: How to get LaunchBar to...

May I suggest again to take a look at the manual: Recent Items, in particular: Accessing an application’s recent documents (but only for coca applications!) The other way is to search for the file rather than the application. Open the file should open the associate application. Exception: The file f...

Re: Problems with Espionage's symbolic links

Another problem occurred: Espionage creates invisible volumes and as such LB should be able to eject them but it doesn't. LB does list the volume as a volume; it shows up in the list of volumes (using the / key). It would be great if LB and Espionage would play more nicely together... The developer ...

From LB's help: LaunchBar uses an adaptive evaluation algorithm (AASv4) to find the best matching items based on the abbreviation you type in. A sophisticated rating system considers the position and density of the given characters within the name of each index item. The resulting ratings are then a...

Re: Selecting folders not working in LB dialogs?

Now I understand your problem - my mistake, sorry. I would guess the problem is related to LBs behaviour to work more like a background application, and, therefore, tries to pass the path to another application even thought LB was the latest active application actually. In addition, as you mentioned...
