    Question macOS: Convert with dBpoweramp not showing for all files types

    For .wav and .m4a, I get the services entry for Convert with dBpoweramp, but not for .flac files, it seems.

    Where/how can I fix that association?
    (It did work on my previous Mac. Just did a clean install on a new Mac.)

    Try to uninstall, full reboot of the MAC (full shut down) then reinstall dBpoweramp.

    Tried dragging dBpoweramp Music Converter.app to trash. Reboot.
    Reinstalling by dragging it from mounted disk image to /Applications.
    Starting dBpoweramp ... Didn't seems like it made any difference ...

    Then I did the same again, and this time emptied trash before rebooting.
    It didn't seem to work ... but then, suddenly it did work ...
    Would be nice to know what's going on, I assume some mdworker or lsregister process or something ran quietly in the background somehow ... Anyways, Convert with dBpoweramp is back for FLAC files as well ...
    Thanks!

    And the issue is back, Convert with dBPowerAmp disappeared again for FLAC files ... huh?

    Can it be related to changing default app for opening FLAC files?

    I got it fixed again, but hopefully this issue won't come back all the time ...

    Most likely, even in Windows if you change the default app you will loose those right click options.

    Ok, and new entry is generated when the dBPoweramp app is run for the first time/when the os is generating app signature? (Or during the reboot/login thereafter?)
