Why don’t I see “Clip Recipe” and/or “Import Recipe from Web Page” in the Services menu?

If you are using Mac OS X 10. 10, support for Mac OS X Services changed and they are totally configurable now. You do have to explicitly add your MacGourmet Deluxe Services menu items to your Services menu though, they are no longer there by default. To do this: Open the Services Preferences from the Services menu in any app, in this case, Safari: Snow Leopard Services Menu Then, look for the MacGourmet Deluxe menu items, “Import Recipe From Web Page” and “Import Text Clipping” and check the boxes next to them: Snow Leopard Keyboard System Preferences Pane

Close Preferences, and that should be it, the MacGourmet Deluxe Services have been enabled again.

However, sometimes getting the menu to display is not this simple. If you do not see the menu item in Services, try copying MacGourmet Deluxe to the system Applications folder. You can also try logging out, and restarting if that still doesn’t work. You might even try restarting two times if the service still does not show up.

Sometimes, if you have more than one version of MacGourmet Deluxe on your disk, Mac OS X might also pick an older version for the items in the Services menu (there is no real rhyme or reason to how it does this it seems), and if the older version does not support the Service, the items won’t get added.

To fix this problem, do a Spotlight search for MacGourmet Deluxe, and delete any older copies you have on your disk. Log out and log back in, or restart, and that should fix things.
