Control which services are shown? [CLOSED]

Post by flips » Thu Feb 14, 2019 2:03 pm

Hi!
I've created a few services of my own, in particular a few services for PDF files.

These are available in Finder, but not in Nimble Commander.
I assume that's because the services are specific to PDF files?

So, now I have to "Show files in Finder" (which works well, the selected files are selected in Finder), and then select from the Services menu in Finder ...

Any way I can have the Services show directly in NC? :)

Hey!
At the moment NC exports its entries to the Services as either a list of file paths or as a single file path, regardless of the file type.
I'm not sure what's happening in your case, but looks like Finder does some processing for PDF files, which NC doesn't.
Can you try accepting any kinds of files to check if there's any difference?

Changed to "any app" instead of just Finder in Automator.
That helped for some strange reason ... :roll: :D

Ok, that explains the issue :)
