Launchbar 6 and Chrome search engines

Post by lithboy1 » Tue Jul 15, 2014 11:38 pm

Chrome search engines allow you to define a keyword and search term that turns into a custom URL. You can type 'g foo' and search for 'foo' on google.com. This is identical to Launchbar 'search templates' except it's defined in Chrome, so you can use it there.

Launchbar has support for these. I upgraded from Launchbar 5 to 6 and now they're gone. Both the 'Google Chrome Bookmarks' and both 'Search Templates' indexes are enabled. Any ideas? This is basically the only thing I use Launchbar for and I don't want to manually add ~40 search templates into Launchbar.
