It just works (without any tweaks) on my Mac
Authored by: osxpounder on Dec 08, '08 03:23:00PM

I confirm that dragging xxx@yyy to the Desktop creates a Mail To link, not a text clipping, on a iMac running 10.5.5.

I have stopped using text clippings on the Macs I use regularly, though I do use them when I'm on someone else's Mac (as when I attend a training course, or visit a friend).

For my Macs, I keep TextEdit in my Dock. I wish I could drag text onto the TextEdit toolbar icon I also have in Finder, but it doesn't work for me. Pity.

Still, it's quick & easy for me to drag text onto the TextEdit icon in the Dock.

I appreciate your hint, and I don't want you to think of my alternative as a criticism at all. Different strokes for different folks.
