Selecting folders in Open/Save dialogs
You can use LaunchBar to quickly select a folder in Open/Save dialogs of other applications. Instead of clicking and scrolling within the dialog, press the /-key (forward-slash) to open the “Go to folder” dialog, switch to LaunchBar, select the desired folder and press Command-Shift-C to copy and paste the folder from LaunchBar to the dialog.
The Open dialog of Carbon applications (such as Word, Photoshop, Eudora, etc.) unfortunately doesn’t support the forward-slash keyboard shortcut. It only works in Save dialogs. This is a shortcoming of the Mac OS X Carbon frameworks.
Alternatively you can drag and drop a folder from LaunchBar directly to the Open/Save dialog in order to navigate to that folder.
You can select the desired folder in LaunchBar either directly via abbreviation search, by sub-searching the “Folders” category, or via File System Browsing (e.g. if the folder is not contained in LaunchBar’s index).
Actually, if in Preferences>>Advanced>>"Surround copied filepaths with double quotes" is checked, then it won't work.
