Hello,

I tried to use LibreOffice Basic operator:

Shell ("/Applications/Google Chrome.app", 1)

with no success (application not found).

Any suggestions?

Sincerely yours, Oleg

Andrew Pitonyak, in OO Macros Explained, 8.1, pp.167-168, mentions that it is better to use URL notation for file references, as spaces and other non-URL-friendly characters are specially encoded. This may be the issue you are experiencing. Rather than:

 Shell ("/Applications/Google Chrome.app", 1)

... perhaps try:

 Shell("file:///Applications/Google%20Chrome.app",1)
