System-wide Soulver services

You can actually use Soulver to evaluate text anywhere in macOS via services. Simply highlight some text anywhere, right click and choose Services > Calculate with Soulver. There are three services: one calculates and copies the result to the clipboard, one replaces the input with the result, and one appends the result.

Using the macOS keyboard shortcut system settings, you can assign a keystroke to these services.
