Address Book & Skype

Before SL, I used to be able to right-click on a phone number in Address Book and choose to make a Skype call. Right-clicking on a number in SL does nothing at all. Is this a glitch?

That would be this plug-in: Address Book plugin! - Skype Community or maybe this:Place Skype calls from Address Book (opensource, v. 1.1).

May not be SL compatible. A lot of Mail plug-ins got borked by SL.

Must not be compatible. Got the script in there but no cigar. Hope something gets updated. Thanks.

According the macintouch and some other sites, they state:
"Bluntly, third-party contextual menu plug-ins got the ax in Snow Leopard, and as far as we know, there's no upgrade path for them going forward. Apple's suggestion to developers is to recreate the plug-ins as items for the revamped Services menu, which may work for some but not all."
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard FAQ

And:
"Apple removed native support for contextual menu plug-ins in Mac OS 10.6 in 64 bit mode and replaced it with services items.
Even if the contextual menu plug-in is 64 bit, the applications will not load it.
Almost all, if not all Apple applications shipping with Snow Leopard run 64 bit by default, including Finder, so your contextual menu plugins will not work.

Not happy about it? Let Apple know:
Mac OS X Feedback

The solution:
Abracode Shortcuts is currently the only way to load and execute
today's contextual menu plug-ins in Mac OS 10.6 (in 64 bit apps). "
