LaunchBar Commander / Re: Pane obscured in LBC configuration screen

LaunchBar Commander / Pane obscured in LBC configuration screen
« on: February 10, 2019, 01:20 PM »
Hiya Mouser, long time no post.....

Noticed that the upper right hand pane in the config screen is being partially covered by the lower right (see attached screenshot)

Can't seem to do anything with screen resolution or dragging windows to fix this (the border between the upper and lower panes is not click and draggable)

Any ideas?   Thank you!

Question for my fellow travelers: How much sunscreen do we need to bring?

Not to worry, we go at night!!

I'm looking for something which will help us get several years of home-based business paperwork digitized. 

Must haves:
Recognize and work with any TWAIN-aware scanner (I have three, each is best at a different thing)
Automagically name and classify the resulting scanned documents (most pdf, some jpeg) using dates/labels/keywords for easy retrieval.
Purchase, not subscription.
Local storage - not the #*@&!! cloud.

Stand alone software - not bundled with yet another scanner I'd have to buy.
Installable on 2-3 computers without extra cost.

Any suggestions????


Do you do plumbing???

When I run LBC minimized, it places its icon in the Win 7 notifications area (I meant to say that when I said "taskbar) at the lower right corner of the screen.   I always try to remember to keep it minimized so it will start up this way.

Running LBC with no command line arguments gives me the menu flyout when I left click on the icon and the configuration flyout when I right click.  That's perfect for me.

Running LBC with -nodock and -nowindow gives the menu flyout (with an "exit" selection on bottom) on a left click, and no response on a right click.

I notice that when launching LBC with the -nodock and -nowindow arguments (that's the way I like to use it, as a flyout from the taskbar) it seems that the -readonly setting is also applied, I can't enter the preferences screen.   Is that intentional??

I tested three find-replace sequences using the portable version of the beta.

(1) copy all references from E:\ to C:\
(2) copy all references from E:\ to %APPDRIVE%
(3) copy those all from %APPDRIVE% to D:\

The program file locations were replaced and as far as I can tell are all working OK.

The icon locations as they appear in the preferences screen seem not to have been replaced..

Interestingly, that seems to make no difference.  Icons still seem to show up correctly in the launchbar and in the taskbar flyout even though their pointers no longer exist, including both those icons which are part of an executable and those which are referenced as .ico files .

Thanks Mouser.......

"it would be nice to move to an xml format.."

Now that would be an awesome update.  I understand that it's very non-trivial though.

We can wait a week (or two) - thanks!!

Let's say I have a directory containing 80-90 self contained applications, along with an install of LBC set up to access them all.   This is what's on my wife's computer under her E:\ drive.

Now she wants to replicate this functionality on her new laptop which has only a C:\ drive.  As far as I can tell there are three ways to get LBC to replicate the menu:

(1) repartition her laptop to C,D,E which is kind of overkill I think.
(2) set up a folder on C: which maps to E: on startup
(3) manually edit every entry on the LBC menu, changing every E in the program and icon location fields to a C.

Is there a plan (4) - a way to globally edit the menu and change pointer at once using search and replace?  It doesn't appear so.

That's got it.  You're the <s>man</s> cat, mouser.

Last used Comodo about three years ago. 

My experience was that the false positives came at me more or less like confetti at a Mardi Gras parade, so I killed it and went to the paid version of Malwarebytes combined with the free version of Bitdefender.  Very happy with this combination and plan to continue.

Thanks for getting right back!!

When I put the argument in that box, Firefox launches OK, but the argument seems to be ignored.

The argument which gives me the result I want when run directly is

 -profile "Key Apps/FirefoxPortable/Data/profile"

Next to the argument box is the legend (use %file%) and I'm not quite sure what that means.  Should I rewrite the argument in some way??

General Software Discussion / Re: TrueCrypt alternative
« on: June 04, 2015, 02:58 PM »
Personally I am still using TC 7.1a.   

If the NSA or someone with similar skills and resources decides they want to see what's on my computer, I already have much bigger problems than a few torrented movies and stream recordings off of Spotify that may be sitting there.

My biggest concern would be anyone getting my logins and financial info.  This is protected within a KeePass file which has both a strong password and a keyfile (the latter hidden inside the windows\system folder) all of which is inside a TrueCrypt file which also has a strong password and a keyfile (the latter is stored on a USB stick I keep in my wallet, and a backup in my safe deposit box).

So far I haven't seen any signs of a TrueCrypt vulnerability that would enable J. Malicious Hacker to get to the valuable stuff, given the way I have it set up.

Firefox Portable is located on a USB stick mapped to drive L:\  and is in the subfolder L:\KeyApps\FirefoxPortable

I want to run the program with a command line argument forcing it to use the (relative) profile on that stick located in \KeyApps\FirefoxPortable\Data\Profile

When I navigate to the folder where the executable is located and enter

 FirefoxPortable.exe -profile "Key Apps/FirefoxPortable/Data/profile"

it works fine, but when I place the following in LBC as the command, nothing happens -

%APPDRIVE%\Key Apps\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe -profile "Key Apps/FirefoxPortable/Data/profile"

Am I missing something??

LaunchBar Commander / Re: Mouser - question about LBC backups
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:33 PM »
That should work.

Thanks (as usual !)

I mean, how many video converters/DVD burners/cheesy screensavers/Windows system tweakers would anyone need??

I still have GOTD bookmarked but only because the comments section occasionally turns up a good freeware program that may have escaped my notice.

Don't think I have actually installed a program from there in two years.

LaunchBar Commander / Mouser - question about LBC backups
« on: January 25, 2013, 08:58 AM »
I have three copies of LBC (on the hard drive and two different USB sticks) in a folder which contains many other portable programs as well. 

Because I add to/upgrade these programs periodically, I like to keep the folder synced.  However, doing that seems to occasionally toggle the LBC backup option back to "fill the drive with .bak files" which is what I don't want.

Can you tell me:

1 - in which file LBC stores the selection of backup frequency?
2 - what that selection looks like inside the file?
3 - once I have it set for no backups, can I write protect that file without affecting my ability to edit and save entries in the regular launchbar?



Just a thought, when a new version goes up could you keep a link to the old version for a few weeks?

Are they available on this site or anywhere else??


Tested on another machine running WinXP, and same problem.  Minimize LBC and then exit the program, it forgets that it's docked.

So I do not think it's my computer.


Yes, just confirmed that it does.  I toggled the "Do not stretch to full size" check box, and whether it is on or off, LBC does not remember its docked position if I exit the program while minimized to the system tray.

Where can I download a copy of the immediate preceding version 1.132?  Would like to check that this problem does not occur in that version and therefore it's not in my Windows setup, and I (facepalm) did not keep the earlier version before fully testing the new.

LaunchBar Commander / Using a shorter bar on screen side, but problem
« on: December 05, 2012, 09:06 PM »
If I minimize the launchbar to the tray and then shut down the computer or exit LBC, the launchbar forgets it was docked.  When restarting, it opens up as an undocked window mid-screen.

When I shut down the computer or exit LBC while the launchbar is visible and docked, this behavior does not take place.  Upon restarting, the launchbar is in the proper docked location.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, LBC 1.133.01

Hi Mouser, the subject line tells it all.  Is there a full list somewhere?
