Searching nvALT via Launchbar works no more

Postby Vlad Ghitulescu » Mon Aug 05, 2013 7:12 pm

Hello!


I've done a search template in Launchbar using the advice of David Sparks (http://macsparky.com/blog/2012/4/23/sea ... chbar.html) and that worked perfect until a couple of weeks before. I cannot recall anything special in these period of time - but the search doesn't work anymore now.

When I'm trying to search for something in nvALT via Launchbar, nvALT opens but then nothing happens. However if nvALT happens to be already opened, the result of the search will be properly displayed.

Do you have any ideas?

I'm using the current versions of the mentioned software (LaunchBar 5.5.2 and nvALT 2.2b (111)) on my iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 running Mac OS X 10.8.4.

Thanks!


Kind regards,
Vlad Ghitulescu

You can try this applescript:

Code: Select all

tell application "nvALT"
      search s
      activate
   end tell


Update: I put this into a simple nice action for LB6. Download here: http://cl.ly/0E1Y1V202I0f

Hello!


Suddenly (probably due to a recent Launchbar - update) the action below doesn't work anymore :-(
I get the following error-message (see attachment): "... the script implemented no handler with the name 'run'"

Any idea?

Thanks!


Regards,
Vlad
