    How do I capture the Pathname in a deeply embedded file
    when I cannot Copy/Paste from the Finder's title,
    where it shows?

    One roundabout way: Drag the file to an open Terminal window. Full path will be revealed. Copy path from Terminal.

    From the File menu, choose Get Info. The path name is shown under "Where:"

    It's not obvious, but you can highlight and copy that text if needed.

    Simply Ctrl-click on it, select Services, and there should be an item termed Copy File Path.

    Alternatively, use you right mouse button or 2 fingers on the trackpad (if configured accordingly) to start this.

    My Services window does not show 'Copy File Path'
    How does one get it to show there ?

    It also is not in Mac Hd/System/Library/Services
