LaunchBar 6.3

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.3 with improved support for Finder tags. The keyboard-based launcher refines how it works with multiple tags, enabling you to search for files that have multiple tags as well as apply multiple tags (add, remove, or replace them) via a single action. The release also adds multiple-selection dragging capabilities. If this sounds familiar, this feature was touted in the previous release (see “LaunchBar 6.2,” 4 April 2015), but it was not enabled in that version due to a mistake in the build process. LaunchBar 6.3 also adds the Detect Search Templates bookmarks indexing option, restoring the capability to detect search templates (URLs containing an asterisk) in your Web browser’s bookmarks. It also adds an Instant Calculate option to the Calculator preferences, which automatically calculates and shows the result when you Instant-Send an arithmetic expression to LaunchBar.
