When you drop an item onto a folder using the keyboard (either via Command-D or Command-V) the Default Action as defined in the Advanced pane of LaunchBar Preferences will not be performed to prevent accidental invocation. Instead you have to confirm the desired action by selecting the corresponding item from the pop-up menu. Note that this menu can also be navigated using the up/down arrow keys.
Unfortunately, this behaviour specifically clashes with exactly what I want to do. I don’t feel the need to be protected from “accidental invocation” in this context any more than I need to be protected from it on a mouse-based drag and drop. I suppose there may be a greater risk of moving something unintentionally with a careless cmd-D than with a careless drag and drop, but still ... shouldn’t I get to decide? Is there a hidden preference maybe?
I’d really like to eliminate those extra 2 keystrokes. Sounds ridiculous to say that, but hey we’re LB users here: we’re all about the efficiency!
