Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.0.2 with a smattering of new features, improvements, and fixes. The keyboard-based launcher and shortcut utility adds support for Safari history indexing for the upcoming OS X Yosemite, enables you to use Option-Escape to end sub-searching without closing the item list, and adds Encode to Base64 and Decode as Base64 string transformation actions. It also adds support for using rebeccapurple with the Enter Color action in honor of Rebecca Meyer, daughter of author Eric Meyer. The update now displays additional mixed-case conversion suggestions during Enter/Edit Text, improves uppercase/lowercase case conversion titles, automatically sorts the ~/Downloads folder by Date Added, ensures the default Desktop indexing rule didn’t index any subfolders, and fixes Random Order playback for albums.

Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
