[edit] Hacks

  • The often discussed QuickSilver feature "Append to File" can be done in LaunchBar as well:
  1. invoke LB (cmd-space)
  2. locate your textfile (as if you were going to open it)
  3. press cmd-shift-T ("Run Terminal Command with...")
  4. type echo coffee >> and hit return

You can also append the clipboard contents using 'pbpaste'. In the example above, replacing 'echo coffee' with pbpaste will append the contects of the clipboard to the text file.
