I have been using AcidSearch, an add-on to Safari... is there a way to import those search templates into LB (or in the future?)

To revive this thread... is there any way to import search templates yet? I recently obliterated my LB settings to see if that would address some serious performance issues I had been having – it did – and while I'm happy to reconstruct much of my index by hand, I'd really rather not enter my dozens of LB search templates by hand again.

I've tried copying the individual dictionary elements from my backup Configuration.plist file to the new one, but doing so seems to trigger LaunchBar resetting the entire Configuration file to some default, losing all settings. And there doesn't seem to be another obvious solution.

Any suggestions?

I save all my search templates as bookmarks in safari/chrome in a LaunchBar folder.
This way anytime I sync a new machine or reinstall LB, I just need to index my bookmarks & all my search templates are there again.

There has to be an easy way of importing search templates from other apps like Quicksilver… I have over 100 search engines/templates. This is going to be tiresome to input each into LaunchBar one at a time…
