DO NOT need to launch app first...
Authored by: joshuajabbour on May 11, '01 02:44:05AM

Yes, services are the best-kept secret of X, and I wish more apps would provide more services (I could think of a few more for Fire and OW, plus some apps that don't currently have services, like xFiles....

BUT the wrong info in this hint is that you need to launch Stickies (or whatever app) first to use its services, really you DO NOT need to! Select any text in OW, and choose Make Sticky...and it launches Stickies and makes one (even keeping formatting!)

Awesome stuff!

I was a heavy user of stickies anf mail services in jaguar, but... panther broken this.
If I don't have stickies or mail already opened panther tries to launch stickies and whatever email application in CLASSIC!
I can't figured out how it happens and how to fix it.
