An extraordinarily useful collection of file twiddlers. And the same people also wrote the tool that lets CM.plugin files operate in Snow Leopard, huzzah!

Make a service in automator and you don't need any of this. A native solution, sounds nice. Did I mention native solution? 10 minutes reading max for the mac rookie and your good to go with automator.

Just about every CM from this company is a must-have. After using file buddy's contextual menu, and coming across this, I was really impressed. It would be great to be able to copy the path in your chosen style on the fly instead of having to choose between unix, mac, url, etc... Maybe by pressing the option key? So for now I'll use this with the mac setting, and file buddy's with the standard unix style. And if you like this, you'll love their quick access cm even more. This is functionality that the CM-averse coders at apple need to start making standard.

Agreed. This functionality should be in Tiger somewhere!

Used it for ages and it's saved ages worth of time bringing up finder info and even FileBuddy!
