Apple has made dramatic changes to contextual menus and Services under Snow Leopard. These changes directly affect how the SOHO Notes contextual menu and services work under Snow Leopard.
Contextual Menus in Snow Leopard
Apple has discontinued support for the old-style type of contextual menus in Snow Leopard. This means the SOHO Notes contextual menu will not work under Snow Leopard. Instead of using the SOHO Notes contextual menu you can still use Services and hot keys to perform the actions that the SOHO Notes contextual menu provided. For information on SOHO Notes services and hot keys please refer to the SOHO Notes manual (launch SOHO Notes and choose Help > SOHO Notes Help to access the manual). Instead of the old-style type of contextual menus, Apple has added support for Services to load in contextual menus. See the "Services in Snow Leopard" section below for more information.
Note: We have found that the SOHO Notes contextual menus under Snow Leopard will work in applications that are running in 32bit mode. They will not work in applications running in 64bit mode, so your mileage will vary. With that said, Apple has made it clear that the old-style type of contextual menus are no longer supported and instead is pushing developers to use Services instead. SOHO Notes already supports Services.
Services in Snow Leopard
Apple fully supports Services under Snow Leopard and as such has changed the way Services work under the new operating system. Before Snow Leopard, when an application had a Service it would automatically appear in the Services menu of applications. With the release of Snow Leopard users must manually turn on the services they wish to use. When a service is turned on, it will appear in the Services menu in applications AND in the new contextual menu system when appropriate. Services can be enabled and disabled via the Keyboard system preference pane. To activate a Service perform the following steps:
1. Open the System Preferences.
2. Click the Keyboard button.
3. Click the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
4. Select "Services" from the list of items in the left pane.
5. In the right pane will be a list of Services that you can enable and disable.
The SOHO Notes services will appear in the list under the following names:
Save in Receipts
SOHO Notes Open
"folder name" (Where "folder name" is the name of a folder that has a Shortcut assigned to it for grabbing information to that folder.)
"folder name" > "title of note" (Where "title of note" is the the title of a note that has a Shortcut assigned to it for either pasting the note in other applications or grabbing additional data to the note.)
