Show Package Contents

Post by Arrowbox » Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:03 pm

When looking at an application it is possible to right click and "Show Package Contents". Is it possible to do this with launchbar? Maybe with an AppleScript?

It would be nice if I could drill down inside the app, but I could settle for an action that opens the package contents in a window.

Try ⌥+Right arrow, it should work as you expected. :)

Thanks! Exactly what I wanted, and it works with the Vim-ish movement commands!

Norbert, thanks for the pointer. I knew I had it from your documentation, but I couldn't find it again… anyway, it's a very handy function!

I'd love it if little commands like these were hinted in the app - I figure I should be able to tab > show package contents and see a shortcut, or at least right click and see the shortcut.. I miss this kind of inline hinting for the itunes>play in iTunesDJ, too..
Thanks, Tim
