Question about Search feature

Post by quaymat321234 » Fri May 19, 2017 4:24 am

When I search for something I don't have the ability to search for more than 1 word, Every time I type (Example) Majik Boys (2 words) I get as far as Majik then hit space and it opens the first item. I want a complete search with Majik and Boys. How do I do this?

Any help is much appreciated,

Thanks a bunch

Just do not type the space. Type “majikboys”.

Or, for simply finding files, use Spotlight. It’s made for that, and IMO it works pretty well. (LB is not a Spotlight replacement.)

You can also make a Spotlight search from within LaunchBar (set the hotkey in LB preferences > Shortcuts), or use the excellent Spotlight Search action by nbjahan. The latter allows you to further process the search result in LB.
