LaunchBar, a handy utility that gives you instant access to your documents, apps, and more, has hit version 6.3 with improved tag support and the ability to drag multiple items to applications.

LaunchBar for Mac updates with improved support for tags and more

LaunchBar's improved support for tags in OS X Yosemite adds a number of new capabilities and improvements. You can easily get a list of items under a selection of tags, as well as quickly remove tags from files. Check below for the full list of tag improvements:

  • Sending one or more files to the Add/Remove/Replace Tags actions presents a list of all available tags (as it did before), but you can now select multiple tags from that list.
  • Items can now be sent to multiple tags to add, remove or replace all existing tags in one go.
  • When multiple tags are selected in LaunchBar, pressing Return now presents a list of items that have all these tags set. To search for these multi-tagged items in Finder instead, you can press Command-Return.
  • The tags of an item, that are shown during Info Browsing (by pressing Option-Right) can now be removed conveniently just by pressing Command-Delete. This also works for multiple tags.
  • Fixed some tag indexing issues: Items with multiple tags or with legacy color labels were not properly indexed under some circumstances.

LaunchBar 6.3 also comes with multiple selection dragging. This allows you to drag multiple items from LaunchBar to other applications. There have also been a number of other improvements in this update. The app can now detect search templates in your browser's bookmarks. A new "Instant Calculate" option has been added to the calculator, and the display of action result items has been improved.

You can download LaunchBar 6.3 from developer Objective Development right now, with a 30-day free trail, after which you'll pay $29 for a single license.
