Quicksilver tip: Copying a folder path to the clipboard

Filed under: quicksilver, tip, tool — michaelangela @ 8:44 pm

I’m sure this is out there somewhere, but for me it’ll be right here. 🙂 Plus it’s a multi step process which I didn’t actually expect. It’s not complicated but it’s longer than I thought. Maybe there is an easier way?

I wanted to copy the path of a source folder into Eclipse for Cairngen. I navigated to the folder in Quicksilver but wasn’t sure how to get the path. You have to:

  1. Cmd+G to the selected folder
  2. Tab to command pane
  3. Some combination of letters of “get file path” to get the file path (Quicksilver jumps back to the 1st pane with your path there now)
  4. Tab to command pane
  5. Copy to Clipboard

It seems longer than it actually is. And it’s a whole heck of a lot shorter than anything else I know of… so no complaints here!

  1. Tried doing this, but I don’t have the ‘get file path’ plugin.
    What plugin did you use to get this?
