LaunchBar 4.3 released!

Post by norbert » Mon Jul 30, 2007 11:22 pm

LaunchBar 4.3 has now finally been released. Thanks again for you patience. I'm confident that it has been worth the wait!

Please see the LaunchBar page for an overview of new features, and the Release Notes for a detailed listing of all changes.

Outrageously great as always! I love LaunchBar, and simply cannot use a Mac without it.

Very nice Norbert!

One new feature I noticed, hitting return for search templates lets you enter text. I wish there was a preference to go back to the old way. I use many of the search templates as bookmarks and often press return to go to the site. I can get used to option-Return but a preference would be nice! :)

Thank you!. LB "is" my interface, and now it does so much more (with less, even).

This seems like a silly question, but was the resizer on the launcher removed? I can't figure out how to make it larger or smaller. Previously you could grab the bottom right corner

You can resize the bar from the left edge (same as before). We've planned to allow resizing from the right edge as well.

We've removed the resizer icon to reduce visual clutter in the interface. But you still get a resizing cursor when you hover the left edge with the mouse.

Result Menu

Post by BravoAlpha » Wed Aug 01, 2007 1:25 am

I'm pleased with the update overall, but I do have one problem at the moment.

I have the actual bar located in the bottom left corner of my primary display. After installing this update, the Result Menu shows up underneath the bar instead of on top; That is, the results are shown off the screen where I can't see them. :|

I have the same issue. There seems to be a bug with 4.3. The older version “knew” where it was on the screen.

The 4.3 release doesn't display my generic folder customized icons like it did in previous versions.
It does some but not others. I can't find a pattern to it. I've replaced all default icons in the coretypes bundle (and in launchbar resources).
It does the default folders in / and ~ fine though. If I right arrow through a folder, the next folders viewed will be the windows default ones.

Any ideas what is going on?

Man, I bloody love this app! The calculator threw my opening of 1Passwd out-of-whack, as I used 1P, but I've gotten over it. I like the manual as-is. Everything is so efficient in Objective Development's applications. Many thanks for the great apps!

The same behavior is exhibited on my machine.

Previous versions of LaunchBar didn't display customized file or folder icons either (except for folders in ~, / and /Users/Shared). We do this for better performance and a smaller memory footprint. And it helps to indicate the type of a selected item more unambiguously.
