Re: I need an english LB 5 localization, please!

As long as there is no german help, a german localization makes no sense. While I would argue with that, here's what you can do: ⋅  EDIT: See norbert's post below, his solution is much simpler! ⋅  Set Mac OS X's default language to English : System Preferences > International > ...

Services aren't broken in general, for example the "Look up in Dictionary" Service works via instant send, as expected.

Have you tried the service from another program or another service from Nisus Writer Pro?

Re: LB 5 services indexing rules

When I e.g. try to clip a text to a notebook I send the selected text to launchbar and then choose a clip via indexing. Nothing happens. Am I doing sth wrong? What do you mean by "choose a clip via indexing"? This might be a service with operates on the selected text only. So you'll just ...

Activate the "nonactivating mode" on the "General" pane, it works as expected.
Dunno how this mode behaves differently apart from this, though.

I sent Objective Development an email and will post their answer here as soon as I get it :)

…which doesn't produce any helpful results, does it? Surfearth, while LaunchBar can display iTunes ratings there doesn't seem to be a way to set ratings directly from LaunchBar. You could write/find Applescripts to do the rating for you. You could also submit an official feature request to Objective...

I think this has been a wish from many users for a long time, IMHO the easiest solution for us users would be a special shortcut that would send a folder to the frontmost save dialogue.
However, having only superficial knowledge of Cocoa, I don't know whether that's even possible.

Re: keyboard shortcuts

And I did change the preferences in Spotlight, too, so they correspond to the same shortcuts in Launchbar. Does that mean you set Spotlight's shortcut to ⌘Space, too? I think you have to set it to something different like ⌥Space if you want LaunchBar to catch "it's" ⌘Spa...

Yes, that's possible.
One could even add it to launchd to have it frun automatically every hour or so.
Maybe someone on this forum… unfortunately I don't know anything about Delicious bookmarks.

When I asked Objective Development about plugins, they were always too concerned about… exactly, speed and stability. They don't want LaunchBar to turn into another Quicksilver. In theory if you can write a plugin you should also be able to write a script that fetches what you want and places it in ...

I don't think there's a hidden setting as all icons would have to scale with it. While that's possible, the icons in LaunchBar are all one size only at the moment.
You can submit an official feature request to Objective Development here.

It should.
Make sure the shortcut you want to assign isn't used by anything else.
Try something obscure, e.g. ⌃⌥⌘ Space to see it working.

In theory I think % should work. On LaunchBar's front page there is also a mention of a rem command (remainder), but I couldn't get it to work. You can read about bc here . But in General, it seems that the calculator isn't yet fully implemented. The % operator can be entered, but it is always evalu...

Sure, LaunchBar moves in mysterious ways, sometimes… If you type "sermon" into LaunchBar it will indeed still find contacts like "StEve RebMann (wOrk)". Maybe it's best to froget about the notion that you type any words whatsoever into LaunchBar. Instead, you type abbreviations. ...
