When setting up the dock, I selected "Small icons" for the "Menu icons" option, and I thought that was it. I totally forgot that folder nodes also have a "Large icons" checkbox which (I believe) comes checked by default. Unchecking it solved the issue.

(Shouldn't this be an option in "Node overrides" btw? If I'm setting up a dock with small icons for the menus, having the folder nodes with large icons by default seems counterintuitive. Or maybe not.)

Everything is working perfectly again, LBC FTW!

Hi mouser! Thanks for your prompt reply.

These options seem to have no effect. Or, more accurately, they do have a dramatic effect on the toolbar itself (setting the "small icons" size to 8 makes it really, really thin) but not on the menus, which keep showing large icons and lots of space even though I have the menu icons set to small.

I wanted to attach a screenshot so that you can see what I mean, but as soon as I press a key to capture the screen, the menu closes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Just visualize a tiny toolbar with huge elements in the menus.

I've been using LBC for a long time now and I'm so happy with it. A few days ago I had a catastrophical Windows 8.1 failure and I had no option but to update to Windows 10. Now all my LBC menus are too big, consuming lots of space, instead of the nice compact view I had before.

It's possible that I'm not remembering my LBC configuration very well, but for the life of me, I can't find a combination of options that allows me to get the previous behaviour.

I basically have folder nodes in my toolbar, all of them in a single "menu" dock. This dock is configured to have large icons for the nodes but small icons for the menu items. The menus seem to have pretty large icons, though. And now I have to scroll endlessly to get to what I want, as opposed to when I used LBC on Windows 8.1 where almost every menu fit on the screen.

Is this something about Windows, or do I need to change some settings in LBC?

Full length, top of the screen, big icons.


LaunchBar Commander / Bug with filenames (accented characters)
« on: July 02, 2020, 06:11 AM »
Hi everyone! First of all, mouser, thanks for this wonderful piece of software. I had used a couple of launchbars and even programmed my own before finding this one which is near-perfect. It now lives permanently at the top of my screen.

I wanted to point out a bug (or lack of a feature) when using folder nodes. In this case, filenames with accented letters (á, Ó, etc.) are interpreted wrongly: the characters come out as a´, O´, etc. This is not a cosmetic issue: clicking on the files brings up an error because it can't be found under that name.

Interestingly, folder names don't have this problem: I can have a path like, say, E:\Revistas\Nueva Dimensión\ND19.epub and the file will open fine. The issue only comes up with the file names.

It also happens for some files and not for others. I can't pinpoint a fundamental difference, but it's there.
