Services - menu vs. shortcuts
Authored by: sjk on Aug 17, '05 04:25:11PM
HotService 2.0 from DEVONtechnologies installs a second Services menu in the main menu bar. I think there's some hack that adds it to the contextual menu but I don't remember what it is.

I mostly (and frequently) use shortcuts for accessing items in the Services menu, reassigning them when necessary to avoid conflicts as I described yesterday in another comment. Command-( (Take Rich Note) is invaluable for capturing rich text snippets in DEVONthink. And I can't count how often I use command-F (Spotlight).

I'm surprised at the high responses for Never in this poll. Many things I do would be crippled without Services (and are, in apps that don't provide/support them).

IceCoffee does the same thing but it uses APE

It's IceCoffee, but it uses APE. For now I have stayed away from applications that use APE.

no problems with APE, been using it since 10.2 for ClearDock, a necessity in my opinion.

I've never had a conflict or issue with it.
