Good day Tom,
you probably need to edit whatever sevice menu file you have set up so
that its command looks like this:
<program> <program options> %F
Notice the capital F
It tells the system to send all selected file names to the
If there is a small f then only the first file name is sent. I think
the same is true if no %f / %F is there at all.
You probably could test this by selecting multiple files, chose "Open
With..." and type in the command.
Best regards :o)
