I see, you are probably running a non-English system, do you? There's a bug in our current services implementation, causing localized services to fail. This will be fixed in 5.0.2.


It works after deleting all language packages except English.lproj in "~/Library/Services/WordService.service/Contents/Resources/“ … which is kind of logical from what you are saying ;)

Alternative: Download LaunchBar 5.0.2, which has been released a few minutes ago :wink:

Yeah, that is even better.
BTW: I see a lot of people on Twitter asking why LaunchBar doesn’t use http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org/. If its on purpose I would recommend to put this in the FAQ.

Of course current Sparkle non-usage for LB updates is on purpose; how could it be accidentally unused? :)

Thanks for the information,
but it doesn’t work with LaunchBar.

This doesn't seem to be working for me. Today is my first day using LaunchBar, after using Quicksilver for years.

Here's what I'm doing:
1. Bring text into LaunchBar whether via Instant Send, Copy and Paste, or the Enter Text action.
2. Tab, and then choose one of the WordService services. Press return.

Then nothing seems to happen. I'm just left staring at the text I had initially entered.

I'm on OS X 10.5.8, LaunchBar 5.0.2.

I have also tried removing everything but English from the WordService Resources directory but with no change in behaviour, even after restarting my system.

Am I missing something here, or is it just not working?

I'm expecting it to spit back the converted text into LaunchBar, but it doesn't seem to be doing a thing.

Just wanted to bump this to see if anyone has this working. I use this type of thing quite a bit and I've had to actually (gasp) use my mouse and bring up the services menu that way.
