LaunchBar 5.5.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Following the recent addition of snippets to the keyboard-based launcher (see “LaunchBar 5.5 [1],” 9 June 2013), Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.5.1 [2] with a single notable refinement among a few minor changes. LaunchBar’s new snippet feature originally enabled you to create plain text snippets, with all snippets saved as individual text files. The update now adds the capability to format the text of a snippet with different fonts and colors (as well as insert images) by opening it in TextEdit (press Shift-Return) and then selecting Make Rich Text from the Format menu (Command-Shift-T) to convert it from plain to rich text. ($35 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members [3], free update, 5.3 MB, release notes [4])
