I’ve been working on a completely rewritten PathSnagger. It is now an application, instead of a service/preference pane, which should make the installation a lot easier for everyone. It works on Lion, and should also work in Snow Leopard, but I haven’t been able to test that yet. The application advertises its own service, so you will still get a “Snag Path” option in your Finder’s contextual menu (sometimes it will be in the Services submenu.)
The new version is much more user definable than the previous version. Once you set up your rules, you can specify exactly how you want the path to be snagged each time you invoke the service.
It also contains Growl support, and will pop up a Growl notification displaying the path that was copied to the clipboard.
I’m very happy with this one, and hope you will be as well! This next release will be deployed via the Mac App Store.
If anyone is interested in beta testing this version, please join the mailing list mentioned in the previous post.
Need Lion Support Please. I am an SE, so beta away.
@jeff, beta’s not ready yet. I will announce on the mailing list if/when I decide to do a beta. I do have it in active development/alpha testing, and I’m getting positive feedback, so hopefully I can wrap this up soon.
I just joined the mailing list to hopefully get a beta. I’m using Snow Leapard but I look forward to removing the pref pane if possible and use the new beta instead.
Is the beta available at this point?
@Green, it’s really close. I just want to wrap up the documentation. I’ll announce on the mailing list when it’s ready.
Nice app! Can’t believe Apple never put this copy-path feature in Mac OS X. (I’m still on 10.5.9, so I’m using the old version.)
Really looking forward to this.. sick of the long process of copying file paths. can we have it sooooon pleaaasse.
I would love to see the Lion Version. If you like, consider me as beta-tester. Thx!

I’m unable to make a donation. I clicked on the paypal link and it gave an error saying:
We were unable to decrypt the certificate id.
looking for the beta or working version of Pathsnagger for 10.7.2. Is it available yet?
Hoping to wrap up documentation early this week (it’s more involved than the previous releases, which is why doc is so important), and then I’ll be sending a link out via the mailing list for the first beta. My hope is to make the beta process go quickly and have a final product soon after.
