Wow – that should definitely silence the questions about LaunchBar's development status. My first reaction when seeing the new logo was: What? Version 6? ^^ But I like it. Really many of the requested features have been added. I'm sure in the next days we'll each find out what we're still missing......

The idea is to press and hold command+spacebar until LaunchBar pops up.
Is that what you did?

I haven't come across this, but you could try creating an alias to the folder on the external hd and index that alias. This way LaunchBar wouldn't have to "think" about the item at all and it should work when the external hd is attached. EDIT: this, of course, is only a workaround. You can...

Jep :D
you need to make an alias of the KeyboardViewerServer app and index it.
The app is located at:
/System/Library/Components/KeyboardViewer.component/Contents/SharedSupport/KeyboardViewerServer.app

I'm sure that if you can replicate those errors and it works in QuickSilver, Objective Development will do something to fix it.

If it's just a text (no URL) you can select your .clip.txt and press right arrow to go into text file viewing mode. Now, with shift+command+c you can copy and paste just the text. However, I'm curious as to why the service shouldn't work – while I don't have Eudora or Word it has always worked for m...

I imagine those area features that require some working on. Problem IMHO is that some of them have been "worked on" for 1.5 years and longer. I guess it would be unfair not to mention that when Kicweed specifically asked about active development. But I also think that LaunchBar is way mor...

Hm. So basically you want _one_ shortcut instead of _two_, right? Like the Quicksilver "Triggers". You can assign an abbreviation to any index item. So to pause iTunes, I activate LaunchBar, then press and hold "p". I guess that's the whole idea of LaunchBar, so if you need short...

Three? That would be Quicksilver, LaunchBar and… who? BTW, I asked the Objective Development about a specific feature (Yojimbo Indexing) and they said they had a whole new category for this sort of stuff in planning, so it _seems_ like they are still developing LaunchBar. I just don't understand the...

I usually try to be as helpful as I can in these forums, and sensible too. However… […]any chance of getting it now, 1.5 years later? …ROFL. There you have it. You're so right, ZevEisenberg.

OK, Bill, what you're doing is not instant send. That's why you have t command+c. Do it this way instead: 1 Select some text using a mouse 2 Instant-Send to LaunchBar by pressing and holding command+space. You know that instant-send worked when it looks like this: http://img.skitch.com/20081025-bayw...

I don't really know what it is that doesn't work for you. I'll tell you my usage model. Select some text, instant-send it to LaunchBar, type "ttd" for ThingsToDo, hit enter. QuickEntry opens, with the text properly attached. Maybe you can describe what you were trying to do, exactly? Ludwi...

Hi ueila,
your URL was wrong:

x-launchbar:perform-service?name=Things/New+To-do+Containing+Selection+as+Note&string=*

You were simply missing the &string=* part at the end :)

Regards,
Ludwig

PS: Things indeed is a great app!
