Contextual menu item copies path of file/folder to clipboard.

Overview

FilePathCM is a contextual menu, menu bar item and service for copying the:
  • POSIX path
  • URL encoded POSIX path
  • Server afp URL
  • Abbreviated (Tilde) POSIX path
  • POSIX path for Terminal
  • HFS path
  • Full name
  • Display name
  • Extension
  • Windows style path
  • POSIX paths of root folder and all subfolders combined

of files and folders to the clipboard. Menu items can be symbolic names or show the actual clipboard contents to be pasted.

It can also be used for creating URLs from file paths, such as AFP type URLs. This is achieved using "prefixes" which are simply prepended to a URL encoded version of a POSIX path.

FilePathCM is part of the Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle : http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html. Purchase a Utilities password to activate all the utilities, including FilePathCM. Upgrades are free, new utilities are included.

FilePathCM initially runs for about ten days without a permanent password.

What's new in FilePathCM

Version 1.2.2:
  • For FilePathMBI: Management of the various options available in Preferences has been simplified by moving the Preferences pane out of System Preferences and into the menu bar application itself. This simplifies both installation and access of preferences for FilePathMBI. (Note: FilePathCM, the contextual menu, and FilePathService, the service, still require the system preference pane if you choose to use them rather than FilePathMBI).
  • For the "Copy All Folders" menu item: it's functionality is no longer conditioned on the option to include POSIX paths in the menu.
  • Changed the app icons to support sizes above 128

Limit Point deserves a shout out. Great software, and their business model -- donate what you think it's worth; get a password for several products -- should be emulated by other developers. I hope this guy makes a million.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

The ReadMe says ... Snow Leopard Support: "Old" style Contextual menus are not supported in Mac OS X 10.6 and higher. Please use the menu bar app or service item included in this software distribution for similar functionality. It looks like time for an app name change.

Out of all the File Path copying apps I tried, this was the only one that could create them in so many formats for both SMB and AFP shares, all well-formed. You do have to know how to set it up so it will work in your environment. For the uninitiated it means knowing things like your server's name. Windows users dont tend to know this as they often use those retarded Drive Letter Mapping rather than the "My Network Favorites". Disclosure- I bought it for work.

Since upgrading to Snow Leopard, FilePathCM is not listed in any of the Services despite being correctly installed in Library/ContextualMenu. I'm curious to hear how you got it to work...?! I have emailed the developer who never got back to me. Waiting for his/her answer, I digged a bit more into Snow Leopard Services (which in itself could justify the upgrade) and managed to replicate what FilePathCM was doing, simply using Automator and a revived/refreshed Applescript.

The services component is deprecated in Snow Leopard, but the FilePath MBI (Menu Bar Item) works, as does the controller PrefPane even though it is 32-bit as mentioned.

Excellent support - thank you for the update. FilePathCM makes it a snap to copy different variations of file paths to the clipboard. e.g. working together with windows guys will give you a convenient way to copy a path with backslash separators I love the custom prefixes (replacing "/Volumes/xy")
