Drag and drop from location bar to create hyperlink
Authored by: jfaughnan on Oct 21, '09 09:11:18AM

I assume you knew that you can click on a location bar URL and drag it onto a Rich Text Editor surface to create a hyperlink with the page title as text?

Works without going back to the browser window...

I just spent a goodly portion of the morning understanding what this hint is supposed to accomplish over simply dragging from the URL in Safari to your rich-text enabled application.

I believe it is that you can run this shortcut from ANY application to get the URL from the frontmost window in Safari into the clipboard. Which is actually kind of handy... however, this hint does not work out of the box if you're using a customized Safari4 beta with tabs on top (unsurprisingly.)
