Put "Add to Collection" in contextual menu

The contextual menu already has "Add to Quick Collection," but I'd like to see "Add to Collection" with a secondary drop-down listing all existing user-defined collections as well. Right/Control-clicking on an image and being able to add it to an existing collection would be much quicker/easier (for me) than dragging the image to the collection title on the left side panel. Just a thought.....

My need is based on being able to see whether a picture is already in the collection or not when I'm browsing and sorting the library. IE: I would expect the drop-down list of collections in the contextual menu to have the collection(s) checked if the picture occurs in the collection. Having to go to the collection, look for the picture to see if it's there is not practical, neither is dragging it to the collection just because you're not sure that it's there or not.
I think my Adobe Photo Album worked the way I want it, but I gave that up for Picasa (non-destructive editing is a must) so can't check now.
... I trust the above is not confusing.

  • Dropbox and contextual menu

    Dropbox has added itself to my contextual menu. Does this mean Dropbox can access my system? Can it install dark software? Why does Dropbox not have to ask permission to modify my system? 
    This is very confusing to me.

    I guess I wasn't clar: Dropbox changed mu finder behaviours, without even asking permissions. I taked wit Dropbox support; they don't know any way to undo it, other than uninstalling Dropbox.
    If they can, without authorization, change my finder, what else could they change if the felt like?
    For that matter, why couldn't every one of my 150+ applications decide to put itself, irrevocably, in my contextual menu?
    I find this inexcusible.

  • How do I add Aperture to the contextual save-as menu?

    I don't use iPhoto, but I do use Aperture a lot. And I'd like to right-click images and have photos go into a project in Aperture (named, maybe, 'Sort Later'? Failing that perhaps saving to a folder called 'Move to Aperture'.
    I'd want this system-wide, of course:-)

  • "Run as..." contextual menu?

    Is it possible to add "run as.." to a contextual menu?
    This to be logged in as a regular user, but to run a certain application as an admin. I know this can be done through the terminal app, but wondered if it can be performed within the GUI.
    Thanks.

    Hi kajacobs
    Welcome to discussions.
    Is it possible to add "run as.." to a contextual menu?
    I think that would be possible to write one to do that. If you don't feel like writing one from scratch you could use something like this.
    http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/mac/16170
    You could also put the script (you mentioned Terminal) in a wrapper, either Applescript.app or make an executable.command both of which could be used from the desktop.
    If you provide more detail about what you are trying to accomplish, better suggestions could be given.

  • Is it possible to add a single Entry Point menu item to a LabVIEW OI menu?

    Using the "TestStand - Insert Commands in Menu (Application Manager).vi" library VI, I can add all Configure menu items to a menu with the "CommandKind_ConfigurationEntryPoints_Set" option for the "Commands" input.  But the VI is missing an "Index" input to specify a single item from the collection.  (UnlikeThe "AplicationMgr.ConnectCommand()" function, which allows you to specify a single item with an index.)
    The issue is the same for Execution Entry Points and Tools as it is for Configuration Entry Point--I can create a menu containing the entire collection, but not a single item.  I tried to delve into the VI to change it to allow specification of individual commands using an index using the Commands.Insert() function instead of the Commands.InsertKind() function, but without success.
    As an aside, even when I add all Tools to a menu (using CommandKind_Tools_Set), TestStand exits with a warning that 12 "RunTimeMenuItem" objects were not released.  I'm wondering if I should be using the Engine.GetRunTimeToolMenuItems interface instead.  But if that's the case, I think I have to build the menu myself and can't use the TestStand library VIs to automatically run commands when their corresponding menu items are selected.  Maybe this is just a bug in the TestStand VIs?
    I am using TestStand 2010 SP1 with LabVIEW 2014.
    Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.
    -Jeff

    I am closing the TestStand Engine, VI Refnum, Quit Application event, and Event Callback, just like in the example.  I get the TestStand unreleased reference error only if I call that VI to include the Tools menu.  The fact that the unreleased objects are "RunTimeMenuItem" objects also implies to me that the problem is specific to the Tools menu items.  Since Tools menus seem to have their own API (which involves RunTimeMenuItems), it seems to me that the VI (or the TestStand Engine?) is doing something with RunTimeMenuItems that I can't see, and is somehow losing track of them (because that VI gives me no visibility to any RunTimeMenuItem objects).  Is it possible that one should explicitly use RunTimeMenuItem objects instead of the menu VI when dealing with Tools menus?  (Maybe the error is due to my using TestStand 2010 SP1 on Windows 8.1, for which TestStand 2010 SP1 is not officially supported?)

  • Contextual Menu Not Working

    Hi!
    My Contextual Menu doesn't work in Safari, nor in Mail - possibly not in other apps, as well, but I haven't really checked. For instance, say I select a word on a web page. If I try to "right-click" by putting down two fingers on the pad and clicking - nothing happens. Also, if I hover over a word, and do <controlcommandd>, no Dictionary pop-up. Dictionary is the main thing I use the CM for, but no other options are available.
    It used to work, but I don't know what I might've done to change this. I've tried clearing CM items from both /Library/Contextual Menu Items/ and ~/Library/Contextual Menu Items/ and restarting, but no go. I can't think of anything I might've installed that would coincide with the problem. Any ideas, folks?

    That's odd, I've only seen "system flippers" in relation to trying to open an older PPC app on an Intel.
    Certainly the command for rebuild Launch Services should not give that.
    I'd run Verify Disk from /Utilities/Disk Utility and also Repair Permissions and see what it turns up.
    1. Navigate to Utilities/DiskUtility and launch Disk Utility.
    2. Choose your volume (usually the second icon)
    3. Choose "First Aid" tab
    4. Click on "Repair Permissions"
    Also run "verify" disk. If the disk needs repair:
    Repair Disk:
    Steps for using Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Tiger Install disc or Install Disk 1 that came with your computer, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
    5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    6. Click Repair.
    If you repair errors run it until no errors found.

  • How to Edit "Open With" in contextual menu

    For instance, while right clicking on a jpeg the "Open With" pop up displays Pixelmator, which is no longer installed, it also shows Photoshop Elements, but that version is on a backup disk, not the current disk, also there is no option to open in Apperture, which is installed and active.
    Is there a way to remove old or unwanted applications and put in current applications into the Contextual Menu?

    Yes, LaunchServices. These are only cache files but can get corrupted. Launch /Utilities/Terminal and copy & paste this at the command line to rebuild LaunchServices: (be sure to copy the entire line it's a scroll)
    Code:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
    Then press return. Wait until terminal returns to the command line. Quit Terminal. After that, log out and back in or restart. Let us know

  • Bug or Feature? Array Custom Contextual Menu Destroys "Delete" and "Insert" Element!

    Step to Reproduce:
    - Create an Array (doesn't matter of what type).
    - Ctrl-M (to switch to Run Mode)
    - Notice that:
           - when you Right-Click on the Array borders, you have access to an "Empty Array" menu item among other things
           - when you Right-Click in an Array element, you have access to an "Insert Element Before" and a "Delete Element" menu item among other things
    - Now switch back to Edit Mode and modify the contextual menu in the following way:
            - Advanced>>Run-Time Shortcut Menu>>Edit...
            - Edit>>Copy Entire Menu
            - Switch to "Custom" menu (instead of "Default"): the menu disappears and is replaced by a single ??? item
            - Edit>>Paste: The default menu reappears with the ??? on top
            - Create you favorite custom menu item by editing the ??? item (say: Do Nothing)
    - Save the menu with the control and switch to Run Mode (Ctrl-M).
    - Now try the first 3 steps above: wherever you right-click, you have access to the Custom Menu, but the Array Element contextual menu is GONE.
    In other words, you cannot (it seems) define a custom contextual menu for an array without destroying the default contextual menu for its elements.
    Therefore, if you want to preserve the ability to Insert and Delete Elements in an array, you have to add these two items to the Array contextual menu and juggle with the position of the right-click to figure out whether or not to display them...

    Well, I created in LabVIEW 2012 such a control and added part of the default menu in the way you described with copy-paste as a submenu to an Edit entry in my custom menu and it did not disappear:

    The logic is wrong. Go into Network Magic Options. On the General Tab, make sure that the following are not checked:
    Do not add Network Magic Folders icon to Open/Save dialogs
    Do not add commands to Explorer shortcut menus
    Click OK and reboot the computer and see if gone.

  • Contextual menu

    Is there anyway to make the contextual menu item "search in google" give the result in a new tab/or window?
    Dual 2 ghz G5   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    I am using several add-ons to Safari.
    Safari Extender offers many tab related features via the contextual menu, including "Search in a new tab". This includes access to a number of search engines, including Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia and MSN.
    [url=http://www.pozytron.com/acidsearch[AcidSearch[/url] is a great alternative to the standard Google, offering access to many search engines. Here, if I highlight text, then right click, a contextual menu item appears. If I hold down the "command (apple)" key, the Acid Search option changes to "Acid Search new tab".
    If you decide to try Acid Search, post back if you need direction about its installation. The site also has guidance about how to install the plug-in.

    This UI change is really stupid and useless. People got used to some specified menu items order. Changing this order could only annoy and anger.
    Also the reload button has been relocated. This is another example of stupid Firefox 4 UI change. The good news is that it could easily be relocated to its original place.
    It looks like the Firefox developers are suffering from idleness and boredom.
    CHANGE IT BACK ASAP!!!

  • Contextual menu in finder "open with" has multiple entries of same apps

    When I use the contextual menu (right click) on documents, the menu point "open with..." shows multiple entries of the same programs. For example when right clicking a PDF, there appears 5 times neoOffice, 2 times Preview, 6 times ... any other application that you could use to open the document. This occurs on all user accounts, only that the multiplicity of listings of the apps is different. So it can't be a preferences problem on my account. What else could be the cause?
    This is quite annoying because the apps-list becomes very long and unusable.
    Note: I have 2 internal start up disks with OS and apps installed, but only one mounted. That means, there cannot be a duplicate (triplicate...etc) copy of any app accessible at any time.
    Thanks.

  • Clean up Finder "Open With" contextual menu in Yosemite

    How do I clean up the Finder "Open With" contextual menu in Yosemite? I have several duplicate and obsolete entries in mine. There are several articles out there that show how to do this for previous versions of Mac OS X, but the instructions don't line up with what I see in Yosemite.
    Also, the entries I have in the menu are from a version of Windows through a version of VMware Fusion, both of which versions I haven't used in a long while. I did a clean install of Yosemite this morning (on an erased disk) so I'm curious how the menu was populated. Did it somehow get inherited through the iCloud Keychain?
