Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.5.2 with further refinements to the keyboard-based launcher’s new snippet capabilities (see “LaunchBar 5.5,” 9 June 2013). LaunchBar now preselects the most recently used snippet when opening the Snippets list, and you can repeatedly press the Snippets hotkey to select the next snippet in the list. The update also squashes bugs for problems with creating snippets via Instant Send, restoring the Clipboard History at startup, and modifier taps.

ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut
For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.
You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.
