LB 6.0.1, OS 10.9.3, KM 6.4.3
I use Keyboard Maestro to set up hot keys for Search templates in Launchbar, by having it call up LB and type the abbreviation for the template and then type return to place the cursor in the field.
Worked flawlessly in LB5. Since upgrading to LB6, I've encountered the following consistent behavior:
If LB is not already active and in front, the hot key will take me to the *last used* search template. If LB is active, then it brings me to the desired template.
(As a kluge, I have to hit the hot key twice, since the first one gets me to LB and the second gets me to the right template. But that's annoying.)
