Results sort order

Post by eyez73 » Mon Jul 27, 2015 7:57 am

I'm new to launchbar and am currently testing it.

I'm wondering how I can change the sort order of the results?

For example if I'm searching for the Teamviewer.app which I use may times a day I'm getting the following...

contacts
website search results
videos
folders
PDF
etc

and hundreds of other files before the app turns up.

I hope this isn't a silly question!!

You can't, though this is not a bad idea. You should write to the devs (launchbar (at) obdev.com). You just use the files/actions/whatever, and next time it'll be on the top. So first time you might have type the full name, or at least more than a few letter; then next time a couple letters will suffice. I made similar mistake when I started to use LB, I indexed all the files, and folders so it was impossible to find anything. You might wanna change the setting so that one two or three level files/folders are indexed. Or make some folder/files available by sub-search only.
