Getting text manipulation actions to work in quicksilver

I'm always raving about Quicksilver and must do my own little tutorial soon, but for now, this post links to a very good introductory video.

However getting the text manipulation plugin can be an obscure process. I found that the following three steps worked for me.

1) In the quicksilver preferences under "General", select "Enable advanced features" (third tick box down)
2) Now select the "Extras" icon in the left-hand pane. The second option down is the "Application feature level". Select Beta (advanced may also work).
3) Restart quicksilver
4) Move to the plugins pain. At the bottom, to the left of the search box is a popup menu.
Select refresh list of plugins.

At last, your text appending should be available. Install it and have fun :).

Thank you for explaining it in a such an easy way. I'd have had to pull my hair before I'd found it. ;)
