Text clippings

Recommended Posts

I thought tearing off text clippings from text documents didn't work any more since OS9.


Say for example for those who never ever made one, you used to be able to swipe some text from some place and drag and drop it on another folder creating a text clipping file. I used to do that quite a lot when I wanted to grab an instruction for a job from a client's email and put it into a folder called Client Instructions for example.


But,... it still works only you have to have greater dexterity in OSX and do it this way..


Swipe some text... Next, ..make a patient click on a letter instead of a quick click of the mouse (that's important) ..next thing just drag the text away and drop it some where else.


Don't forget to do a kinda pause-click to make it work. Quick clicks don't work.


I always liked this little Mac function.
