While I do understand that the finder extension is necessary for the overlay icons, the problem is that it only works in Finder. People who are using Path Finder, ForkLift, or any other file manager are left in the dark. And let’s be honest, Finder is one of the worst designed apps on macOS.
I’d like to start a discussion about also providing the actions
Copy private link to clipboard, and
Send private link by email as a service. Using the service achitecture these actions would be available to all applications on macOS.
I’m not saying to scrap the finder extension, but merely to add the services as well. The code for these actions already exist, thus making them available as a service should not be very complicated but will increase usability and productivity.
