LaunchBar 6.6.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Earlier in April, Objective Development released LaunchBar 6.6.1 [1], which restored the previous behavior of using Command-V to paste clipboard data into LaunchBar while adding the Drop From Clipboard action (Command-Option-V) to apply clipboard data to the currently selected item (such as opening a copied URL in a selected application). That update also fixed a bug that obscured alert panels with the LaunchBar input window, added support for using Shift-Return to instantly perform a DuckDuckGo search with the last entered text, and fixed a bug that prevented files from being dragged onto a folder selected in LaunchBar. Shortly after this release, Objective Development issued LaunchBar 6.6.2 to fix an incompatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and 10.10 Yosemite, plus improve the sort order of folder contents when browsing with the left/right arrow keys.
