LaunchBar 6.6

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.6 [1] with several improvements related to how the keyboard-based launcher works with iTunes. The update now displays both album artist and title when browsing the Albums category, displays artist or album information for the currently playing track in the iTunes/Now Playing info, resolves a problem causing some iTunes actions to fail if the iTunes Today Widget was enabled in Notification Center, fixes an issue when reindexing the iTunes Library, and fixes a bug with Identically Named Songs.

LaunchBar 6.6 also adds an optional modifier tap for accessing snippets (configured in Preferences > Shortcuts), enables you to use the iCloud Drive item as a target for Send To operations, adds metadata to images when Info Browsing in the Clipboard History, improves the Send To operation in the calculator, adds a dedicated hotkey for opening the list of emoji, sorts emoji by most recently used selections, adds support for Quick Look in the Resources tab of the Action Editor, and improves Copy (and Paste) File Contents to work with more plain text file formats (including Markdown).
