You just hit Command-Space to bring LaunchBar’s input window to front, enter an arbitrary abbreviation, and as soon as you start typing LaunchBar displays the best matching choices, ready to be opened immediately.
Start applications, open documents, invoke system services, compose emails, or navigate the Web–LaunchBar will be your essential servant.
Improved character icons for custom actions
- LaunchBar Actions and their result items that use a character as an icon using the previously-introduced character:X syntax can now specify the font in which the character should be rendered using a pseudo-URL-query like syntax or the iconFont property (result items only). Example: character:X?font=Futura
- For characters that cannot be rendered in the system font LaunchBar now uses a fallback mechanism to find an appropriate font.
- Fixed a potential crash when an action returned a result item that had a path and icon set.
- Fixed an issue on OS X 10.9 causing the index window to fail opening the Options pane of some indexing rules.
- Fixed: Sorting by "date added" by pressing Shift-Command-Right didn’t work anymore. This also affected browsing the Downloads folder, which sorts by "date added" automatically.
- Fixed a crash when editing the "Skip Subfolders" or "Exclude Items" options of a folder indexing rule.
