Please note that there are two Print Selection services
1. Print Selection Service 1.0 by Schubert|it
2. Print Selection 1.0 by Robert Chin

I found out that I have both installed on my system, however only one appears in my services menu. Anyone knows how to find out out which one?

Spotlight search? Open your hard disk folder and look in the Services Folder in both your User Library and the main Library Folder? Use the free and wonderful EasyFind from DEVONtechnology?Use Locate, also free? I recommend getting acquainted with one's folder structure/directories. Set the view to Columns and learn what's where. It's often the easiest way to accomplish things. Most users will want to stay out of System, and you are allowed to go in Library just this once <gr>. If y ou're nervous about the wreckage left behind, Repair Permissions afterward, but trust me, especially in your own directory, you can peek at anything you want.

What "wreckage"? Viewing files/folders doesn't change their permissions!

To answer your question (sort of), physics:

• Open the /Library/Services folder
• Print Selection.service is the Schubert version
• is the Chin version
• Delete the one you don't want to use
• Logout/login to rebuild Services menus

By checking the menu entry after doing that you'd be able to tell which one was active when you had both installed unless their menu entries look identical. If you don't like they version that's installed just delete it and install the other.

I don't have any recommendation since I haven't used either but the Schubert version has a cleaner installer package (e.g. installs directly into /Library/Services).
