Missing "show in context" shortcut in LB6.1

Post by julou » Mon Sep 01, 2014 4:38 pm

Hello,

A shortcut I used to enjoy a lost was the ability to show a finder item in its directory within launch bar. In LB5, it was possible using shift-left arrow once a file was selected (typically from the recent docs of an app). I cannot do that anymore in LB6. Did the shortcut change? If it has been deleted, I would strongly support implementing it again.
Thank you in advance for your help. Regards,

Thomas Julou

I can hit Left Arrow to display the selected item in its folder context (and then go up further in the folder hierarchy with Left Arrow again), or cmd-Left-Arrow to display it in a “vertical” folder hierarchy.

It’s the same with recent items (cmd-B) or with the very nice “Recent” actions by @nbjahan.

(If you have used Right Arrow (instead of Return) to open a “Recent” sublisting you have to first use option-Left-Arrow to follow the selected item back.)

Cmd-Return reveals it in the Finder.
