LaunchBar and Contactizer Pro address book?

I'm trying out Contactizer Pro, a PIM/Address Book/iCal replacement application and I'm having a challenge with how LaunchBar handles the launching of contacts in my address book. First, CP uses the same contacts records as Address Book and CP has a setting to make CP the default address book to ope...

Bill,

Instead of Cmd-Space, use whatever key sequence you have set up to activate LaunchBar. Most of us use Cmd-Space, and I suspect that Ludwig does as well. I just tried the above sequence and it works for me.

Re: safari history also not working

However when i try the quick launch of launchbar and then press .app (that should be enough to display www.apple.com shouldn't it?) The default action when typing a period "." in LaunchBar is to enter a URL to be opened by LaunchBar's "Open Location" command. Thus if you type &q...

Feature Request: Options for Addresses

I have Jon's Phone Tool installed and I really like how LaunchBar can call a script to dial a number from JPT. One of the features of JPT is the ability to set preferences on what to do when an address is selected from the JPT address book menu. I can display the address in large type, display the a...

I did run the Terminal command above and the output does indicate that the URL contains & as you say. I do hope that LaunchBar can overcome this issue in the future. Thanks for the help.

LaunchBar does NOT modify the URL, and that's probably the cause of the problem. If you look at the contents of your OmniWeb bookmarks file you can see that it actually contains an & within the bookmarked URL. We'll try to fix this in the next LaunchBar version. I've looked at the contents ...

Thanks for the info on the use of the ampersand in a url. Changing the & -> & does indeed change the webpage that I get. With the & url I get a generic search screen just like what you get when you click on the "Search" button in this forum. I can edit out the amp; part...

Strange behavior with bookmark

I use OmniWeb as my browser and I have created a bookmark for a forum that, when selected from the bookmark menu, will take me to a list of all the new posts since my last visit. The tail end of the url looks like this: ~/forums/index.php?act=Search&CODE=getnew When I launch the bookmark via Lau...
