How to save half-made service in Automator without making it active, as it is not finished?

It does not matter if it's unfinished. Doing Command+S will save it under ~/Library/Services.

Taking the Service out of ~/Library/Services and restarting Finder (if you want immediate effect) will make this Service not to be shown under Menu / Services. Putting it back will, of course, make it appear again.

It does not matter where the file is placed, you'll be able to open it with Automator to continue editing it.

It'll be accessible in menu/Services although it doesn't work, which is what I want to avoid at the moment. –  Vladimir Mar 7 '13 at 16:09

You mean- if the Service file is saved somewhere else it won't appear in Menu, but it can be open with Automator, right? Could you this time edit your answer directly? –  Vladimir Mar 7 '13 at 16:54
