restoring last active window
« on: May 21, 2014, 12:50:42 PM »
Hello  :)

Is it possible to set this app to return focus to the window that was last active before the user pressed the button in the dock?

Normally you probably wouldn't want that -- you'd want the launched target to get focus, but it might be a good option to add on individual commands, yeah?

yeah, I was thinking about small AHK scripts that work on the visible window

I guess it might be possible to make it work universally - Launchbar Commander could return the focus to lastactive app if it still has the focus after starting a shortcut?

or probably as you said - per command :)
