Tools for services
Authored by: displaced on Sep 08, '05 07:17:48AM

I use Services quite frequently too -- especially when browsing macosxhints.com!

Try this:

Whenever a hint features a Finder path to navigate to, save yourself a load of mouseclicks and folder-finding by:

Highlight the path's text, go into the Services menu, and try out the options under Finder. You can open or reveal the highlighted path.

Try it out on this:

/System/Library


I also use the Speech entry regularly. I get Victoria to read aloud a few paragraphs from Groklaw whilst I'm working on something else.

I agree the Services menu needs some additional thought from Apple. But the underlying notion is incredibly powerful.

Thanks for reminding me to add some shortcuts for those Finder services. :-)

Finder service shorcuts

Foo, that won't work because the service names are too generic -- Open, Reveal, Show Info.
