index items in Aperture library?

Post by ape » Thu Sep 29, 2011 6:38 pm

Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems viewing their Aperture library via LaunchBar? I know the documentation states that I should be able to right arrow when selecting Aperture (and the disclosure triangle is there), but hitting the right arrow doesn't do anything. I'm using Aperture 3.1.3 and I don't know if something has changed with Aperture or with LaunchBar for this not to work.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Steve

I'm using LaunchBar 5.1.3 as well as Aperture 3.1.3 and it works as expected. Please delete the following file and check if it works afterwards:

~/Library/Caches/LaunchBar/AppInfo.cache

Manfred,

Still not working. I killed LaunchBar, deleted the AppInfo.cache file in the location you specified and relaunched LaunchBar. Bringing up the Aperture program item, I can see the disclosure triangle, but pressing the right arrow does not perform any action.

Is there something specific about the way the Aperture library needs to be set up?

Thanks,

Steve

But your Aperture libraries are accessible? For example if they are on an external hard drive, they only appear in LaunchBar if the external drive is connected.

Aperture library is located in my ~/Pictures directory on the local disk.

The library file is also present in my LaunchBar index.
