LB6 cannot find Chrome locations

Postby sgmiller » Thu Jun 12, 2014 11:44 am

Both the bookmarks and history for Chrome say the folder does not exist.

I heard back from Support and the issue is that Chrome supports multiple profiles and each folder in App Support is name "Profile" instead of "Default" which LB is looking for. Since there seems to be no way to rename the folders, I made a symlink called Default which points to my profile folder and now it works. Support said they would fix this issue in an update.

I know this is an old thread, but this is still an issue.
Just to clarify what someone said above, I found that a symbolic link does NOT work, you have to make a HARD link.

Of course, you can do this right in Launchbar. I just made the hard link on my desktop, and then renamed it to "Default" and moved it alongside "Profile#" (where # is the number of your profile). Update your index, and you're golden.
