Can't open contacts in the contacs.app in mountain lion

Post by pshizzle » Tue Jul 31, 2012 10:43 am

since mountain lion, when i hit 'enter' when i'm on a contact in launchbar it doesn't open the contacts.app anymore - it only goes inside the contact IN launchbar.

is there no way anymore to launch contacts.app from launchbar?

Yeah I've noticed this too - I'd like the old behaviour back!

This is one feature I heavily use. I'm stunned that this is gone and I strongly hope Objective Development brings it back!

First I thought there has to be some issue here, because I could not believe this option isn't available anymore. So I started LaunchBar with new preferences, deleted it's cache etc, but all of this didn't solve the 'problem'. Great loss to me.

+1 who'd like to see this switched back, or at least the option to choose.

*update*

Good news (I think). I contacted support - they said it's a bug - and not a design choice - that they're working on.

yes, I have the same problem.
used it a lot. nice to hear it's a bug.
since 5.3 my workflow has been slowed down by exactly 2.7 seconds.
hope this gets fixed soon.

I have to say, the devs communications habits on this forum leave a lot to be desired.

Comforting to know I'm not the only one. I have tried all of LaunchBar's major competitors, and had to ditch them because they wouldn't let me open a contact in Address Book...er...Contacts.app.

I'll look forward to the fix!

Count me in as someone who uses this functionality all the time and was really confused when it didn't work recently.
Hope it's fixed soon. I also have the Contacts preference set to "Open Card", so it should work correctly (and always has).

Mountain Lion + latest LaunchBar here.

As of today there is a nightly build (v 5.3.1 nightly 940) available for download, that fixes the issue:

FWIW, this was a problem in SL 10.6.8 too. Don't remember when it started, but the upgrade to the nightly helped. Thanks!
