Copying a path without the "%20" space character

I just copied but hitting the LB shortcut and holding, then copying. The path is hard to read once I paste it though because of the "%20" characters in the every white space character.

Is there a setting or a way to remove these automatically?

So there's no way to do this?

I'm not sure if I understand you right. If you use instant-send to open an URL in LaunchBar, no whitespace replacement takes place.

When I hold down option-space on a file/folder from the server here at work, I get %20 characters.

But no, you're right, it doesn't happen when I do it with files on my local machine. Could it have something to do with the text encoding? Just a guess.

You are talking about mounted directories in Finder, right? Please select a file but instead of pressing&holding the LaunchBar shortcut please choose »Finder« -> »Services« -> »Send to LaunchBar«? Do you see the same behavior?

I tried that. The path still includes the %20 characters.

Is there no solution for this problem?
