KM opens last LB Search Template

Postby vcaston » Mon Jun 23, 2014 1:40 pm

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.)

Thanks.

Victor

It looks like this is a question of LB6's responsiveness.

If I add a small pause (.001 seconds) into the KM script, between the hot key combination and the abbreviation for the search template, everything works fine. This was not necessary on LB5.
