Steps to reproduce
- On MacOS, open the “Obsidian” application menu in the menu bar.
- Try to select Services (which used to be there)
Services menu is present and usable. (This was true in Obsidian 0.8.15)
Services menu is missing, as of Obsidian 0.9.0.
- Operating system: MacOS 10.15.6
I use the Services menu for various Obsidian automation tasks, via Automator.
I don’t have help to offer, I’m just shocked you had access to the Services menu to begin with! I got the impression from this thread that Obsidian wouldn’t be able to support “Program>Services” in MacOS at all. Maybe my info is out-of-date now.
Hmm, I’m on 0.8.15 and I don’t see the Services menu and have never seen it in Obsidian.
Yes, as suggested by others, this has yet to be implemented. @dsteinbock are you sure it used to be there for you?
Oops, you are right. My mistake. I wasn’t using Services in Obsidian. I’d just built a Service to automate installation of Obsidian CSS mixins. I’d used it from a web browser and mis-remembered using from within Obsidian as well.
As a give-back, I will share my automation method on the forum.
It would be great if Service Menu could be available on Obsidian.
For exemple, I daily use a script with every text software which allow me to insert academic references with Zotero.
I currently have to launch spotlight to overcome this lack.
Just replying to amplify the need for this. Would love to see Services be available.
I read in another thread that including access to Services in Electron apps is difficult. On a unitless scale, how difficult is this? As in is this something I should expect at some point? Or would it require a level of reconfiguring that renders it never likely?
