Re: I want entourage to open NOT address book

Open the LaunchBar index, select the 'Address Book' icon in the left pane, and then click on 'Options' in the right pane. From there you can select which application is linked to your addresses.

Re: Maintenance period for version upgrades and valid licenses

You don't have to pay for LaunchBar again. You purchased a license for LaunchBar 4, it is very stable, and is still available for download here . Should you decide to upgrade to the new features in LaunchBar 5, a reasonably priced upgrade path is available, but you can continue to use LaunchBar 4 if...

I just took a quick look at their site, the search string format still seems pretty straightforward for me: I tried this before myself. It looks straightforward, but when you call it from LB you get a blank page. The URL in every way looks identical from what one gets if searching directly from the...

Thank you! I've always run LB without the Dock icon, and this bug was very frustrating-glad to have it fixed.

I just noticed something else though. If I launch an app by pressing return after typing in the abbreviation, it does not come to the front. However, if I launch an app with the "hold the last key down" trick that was added in one of the 4.x updates, the app becomes active as expected. I ...

Well, the odd behavior is back today so moving LB in/out of the Applications folder did not stick.

Moving LB out and back in the Applications folder seems to have fixed the issue for me as well. I'm glad a solution was found as this behavior was driving me nuts! Thanks!

When I first posted this issue, I checked "Hide other applications when opening an item" in LaunchBar's preferences to somewhat get around the problem. I'm sure this behaved as expected (hiding all items) at first, but now this is behaving erratically also. Sometimes only the active applic...

I never use Spaces myself, so that's not a factor on my system.

There's a terminal command to fix this in Leopard, but I've not tried it myself. Google "Set Help Viewer windows to non-floating mode" will get you the info on how to do it.

Quirk with launching applications LB 5 beta 1

I've noticed that when launching an application with LB 5 beta 1, the application is not always made the active application. There does not appear to be a pattern to this behavior, and it is not limited to any specific applications. Sometimes the application is the active application, launching it a...

I thought the same thing, then I looked again and the "L" and the "B" in the icon made sense.

Wow, some really neat features in this update! Clipboard history finally and the QuickLook feature in LB is fantastic! The new icon is pretty cool also.
