iTunes Module

I absolutely love this module. I can easily call up any song, artist
or album in my library. One question — is it possible to not give
focus to iTune after running one of these searches? I have iTunes on a
separate screen in Spaces and QS automatically gives focus to the
iTunes app and switches screens. It would be nice to complete a search
without having to switch applications. Is something like this possible?

Are you just searching, or are you doing something with the results? If so, which actions specifically?

I browse artists, select an album, and play it many times per day and it doesn’t give iTunes focus.

Re: iTunes Module

I've assigned a keyboard shortcut to search by artist, album and
track. When I type in a search, I hit enter on the result, iTunes is
activated and is given focus and the track plays. If you're able to do
these type of searches without having the OS switch to iTunes, it must
be a misconfiguration at my end. I'll take a look when I get home.

Re: iTunes Module

Just figured it out. I was selecting "Open" instead of "Play." What's
the proper method to make "Play" the default action when conducting
one of these searches? I've tried configuring the pre-existing
triggers, but the information palette tells me the command for any of
these iTunes searches is "Search contents of (null)."

I did some testing and noticed albums, artists and playlist all start in the background, but individual
tracks activate iTunes. After reading this, I checked and sure enough, the first three have Play as
default, but tracks have Open.

In Quicksilver’s preferences, you can drag actions up or down to alter their priority. Just move Play up
above Open. This should be safe to do without screwing up the Open action for other items like applications
and documents. (Play doesn’t apply to them and shouldn’t show up.)

Re: iTunes Module

Yes! This is exactly what I needed! I feel a little sheepish for not
realizing it before, but I appreciate the help nonetheless. Thank you
so much, Rob. Productivity is up 20 percent!

Download B54

I am using B51 on OS X 10.4.11 and have started to have a few problems. I see that B54 is the best version for me but cannot find where to download it from. Is it still available?

Re: Download B54

Go to http://www.blacktree.com/, click on Quicksilver, then click on
Old Versions at the bottom of the box. That will give you access to
B54.

How to access the current application via AppleScript?

Hi,

I often hide (many) windows with cmd-m and then have problems to get
them back by selecting them one by one in the Windows Menu,
as there is no "maximize all windows" standard command in OS X (or
have I missed something?).

So I tried to make a simple apple script which does that for me:

tell current application
	repeat with w in (get every window)
		set miniaturized of w to false
	end repeat
end tell

My problem:
If I launch the script via Quicksilver, the current application is
Quicksilver (and not the last active one).

What can I do to make it work for the "real" current application
(instead of QS)?

Kind regards

Martin

Sadly, that link seems broken:
