shortcut to repeat the last search?

Post by dburnard » Sat Aug 06, 2011 1:44 am

Often I perform a search, open an item from the list and then realize I've opened the wrong item, or would like to open another from that list without retyping the search string. I'm guessing there a shortcut to do this,but I haven't figured out what it is. Can anyone enlighten me?

Simply hit your LB hotkey (like cmd+space) - your last selected search result will appear inside the LB window. Then use up/down arrow keys to browse through the list of last search results.

Doh! I should have thought of trying that. Thank you so much for pointing it out. :)

Just to add another nice feature from LB: invoke LB, select another search (engine), hit shift-space and the search term from your previous search will be used.
