Service not available in Nisus

Post by rwg » 2016-03-16 18:29:13

In my Services menu I have a service called "Search in FoxTrot Personal" which becomes available whenever I select some text. Unfortunately it is no longer available in Nisus. Would this be related to that dreaded sandboxing? And if so, is there any way to make it available again in Nisus?

If this FoxTrot search feature is really a proper OSX service, as listed in the Services menu, then it should work correctly even with sandboxing. Proper OSX services are listed in the main menu under Nisus Writer Pro > Services, and include commands like "Make New Sticky Note" and "Search With Google".

However, if this FoxTrot feature is implemented using some other technique, it's possible that sandboxing could prevent it from being loaded into Nisus Writer.

I assume that FoxTrot search is a proper OSX service since it is available in all other programmes in which I have tried it. I have got around the problem in Nisus with a Keyboard Maestro macro (although it is not quite as fast as the FoxTrot search service).
