Set Color Label Scripts are not working

Post by AndreasG » Wed Nov 28, 2007 4:12 pm


I am using Launchbar 4.3.3 on a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I just tried to use the built in Apple Scripts for setting color labels in the Finder for the first time but couldn't make it work...

I opened a Finder window, selected a file, invoked Launchbar, typed "RECL" to bring up "Set Red Color Label" and hit Enter. Nothing happened... How are these Scripts supposed to work? Any help would be much appreciated...

Best Regards, Andreas

Selecting is not enough…

LaunchBar has to know which file you want to assign it to. Easiest 'change' for you: hold command-space to instant-send the file, then enter the abbreviation as you described. Just make sure you hold command-space long enough to instant-send :-)

I hope that helped,
