Finding and Selecting Files with Identical Names Is Painful

Post by Siddhanathaswami » Mon Jun 16, 2014 5:27 am

I'm trying to search for the most recent of a number of files with identical names, but in different locations. I thought Launchbar 5 showed a bit of the path of each file so it was easy to tell where the file was located. LaunchBar 6 certainly doesn't and I don't see a preference to change that.

For example:

I type "test" in LB. I get:

test.pdf
test.pdf
test.pdf

All of these are located in different folders. There's no easy way to figure out which file is in which folder, plus the most recent one doesn't show at the top.

Any ideas?

It's still possible in LaunchBar 6. Just bring up the Preferences and check Show Subtitles on the Appearance tab and the path will show up below the title:

test.txt
~/Documents
test.txt
~/Desktop
