The developer of PathSnagger appears not to be too interested in fixing bugs. PathSnagger still doesn't handle paths that contain non-ASCII characters. While I very much appreciate freeware, it's a bit sad that programs like this are not maintained. I have found a very good replacement to PathSnagger, which doesn't have the aforementioned problem. It can only copy paths in UNIX style and without quotes, but this is perfect for most everyone. http://www.hsoi.com/hsoishop/software/

Requirements: "PPC" *and* "10.6 or later"? Well, that should prove interesting.

I use this for when I'm making notes about everything from software/hardware issues to client projects. I just select the folder I want to reference and right-click and choose "Snag Path File..." in Services. I then paste that link into TextEdit (command-K) and I'm done. That way if I'm writing notes I can simply link to the folder(s) or file(s) in question directly in my text and click on them later to pull them up wherever they are. I do wish I had the option to have this come up directly without having to go into the Services folder first, but that's no big deal. Thanks to the Dev for making a great resource available!

On a MBP with 10.4.9 I get "Preferences Error". You cannot open PathSnagger pref pane on this computer. Bummer.

Works perfectly great! Thanks. May I suggest that you add some hint to the user - either in the Preference pane itself, or in the ReadMe file - that he/she can delete the Prefrerence itself from the System Preferences, to free up some space? That us, when they're done setting the preferences.

I've just updated a bug report I filed earlier: http://www.bergenstreetsoftware.com/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=10 Path Snagger has a problem with paths that contain special characters such as German umlauts, French accented characters etc. These are represented as escape sequences of the form \xxx. PathSnagger apparently gets confused by these and does not copy the path in that case. Since we have a LOT of paths that contain umlauts and the like, it would be so cool if this could be fixed. Other than this, PathSnagger is extremely useful and I recommend it to everybody.

Great little app - I use it every day in a mixed Mac/PC environment, and it's so useful for sending paths quickly to producers and art directors for reviewing work. It would be even more awesome if it could convert between Unix/Windows file path formats (ie. switch between forward- and back-slashes) as appropriate. I'm sure that's do-able; I'm just not the guy for the job.
