    Hi all,

    Today I noticed that all entries in my Services menu (within the program drop-down menu) are greyed out. How can I enable them again?
    I am not using them regularly, so I cannot tell whether I installed something 'bad' recently, or how long that has been this way. But I appreciate any suggestions!

    Best,
    Pit

    Hi,

    Thats already a good point. Looking that up, I noticed that in the Finder, most entries are enabled (but not Screenpicture). In other Apps, eg. Safari, Mail, iChat, TextEdit, Skype, Word, all is grey.
    BTW, I am running Tiger with the latest updates. No strange programs installed that I suspect messing around with the OS, but then - you never know.

    That's the same for me. I don't think it's a bug. They're only enabled when they're relevant or have been included by the app's writer. :)
