Pasting into browser text fields

I've noticed recently that pasting directly from LB into a browser (usually Safari) text field rarely works and I have to copy the text back from LB before I can paste it in. I suspect this is nothing to do with Lb as I've had similar problems with clipboard history using Keyboard Maestro as an alte...

Re: Not responding to cursor keys 5.2 nightly (905)

I restarted my Mac last night and that now seems to have cleared problems 2 & 3 but ⌘⌥\ still doesn't bring up my clipboard history.

Not responding to cursor keys 5.2 nightly (905)

I've noticed some problems in the last few days and am wondering whether they are a launch bar problem. I'm using 5.4 nightly (905) under 10.7.3. 1. The shortcut ⌘⌥\ no longer brings up my clipboard history. For instance in Safari it's invoking 1Password and in TextEdit it's doing nothing. 2. When I...

Google Chrome Tabs

Whenever I use Google Chrome as my default browser I always get a set of tabs as shown below when I run a search or load a bookmark. https://img.skitch.com/20111221-gkqyntfq4hj16nejj3di2jguxi.preview.jpg Click for large view - Uploaded with Skitch If I do this with Safari there is only a single tab ...

Re: Script to Add To-Do to Remember the Milk

It looks like this won't work in OS X 10.7 because Keychain Scripting in Lion is no longer available.

The workaround seems to be to copy the Keychain Scripting.app (and URL Access Scripting.app, which is also gone) from a Snow Leopard backup. I don't have this option available to me though.

Re: OT: Search and Google Chrome

Nope!

I can't seem to get past this problem with Chrome launching from external sources. Any other Chrome users?

Cheers.

Re: OT: Search and Google Chrome

On the face of it Chrome appears to have the same settings (at least with regard to startup and tabs). I wonder why I am getting different results?

I will play around with this some more tonight as I would like to switch to Chrome.

Re: OT: Search and Google Chrome

What search do you trigger? If I trigger for example the Google Search Template, Chrome opens with one tab showing the search results. I'm using the standard Google search template but it always opens up Google Chrome with 2 tabs - one 'new tab' and one with search results. I get the same if I trig...

OT: Search and Google Chrome

Slightly off-topic but I think all the expertise in using Google Chrome with LaunchBar is probably here. Is there any way to configure Google Chrome startup so it works more like Safari when using LaunchBar searches? Basically what I would want is: 1) Open the app directly and get one open tab - hom...

Calculator Shortcut Key

What is the default hotkey to invoke the calculator in 5.0 beta? I wasn't familiar with the original symbol and when I tried to find out what it is I managed to change it.

I know it's Unicode #2327 (cross in a rectangle) can't see how to revert it back to the default.

Duh.

iTunes ratings script

does anyone know if there is an Applescript that could be used to either set the rating of the current iTunes track or to nudge it up or down?

System Freezes

Have there been any reports of OS X freezing with Little Snitch running? I have been having problems with my MacBook Pro. I still have a display but with everything that I was working on literally frozen, mouse won't move, no cmd-tab switching etc? When this happens the only option is to hold down t...

Unfortunately, Apple currently restricts the use of Quick Look to Apple-developed programs only:

Quick Look is supported by the third-party app Path Finder.

I just found myself trying to open a quick look from within LB and it would be very intuitive to just be able to hit the space bat as in the Finder and also in the (third-party) Path Finder.
