Quickly get the contents of .webloc or .textClipping files
Authored by: marksch on Jun 03, '11 12:56:49AM

So... you drag a file into the spotlight search field, then copy and paste it? Why don't you just drag it to wherever you want it right-away?

To copy the text of a clipping file, double-click it and press command-C.

I don't understand the practical value of this hint.

Quickly get the contents of .webloc or .textClipping files

The main focus of the hint is getting the URL stored in the .webloc file to the clipboard, but I wanted to also note that the behavior is the same for .textClipping files. It may be the same for others as well. Some text fields don't accept a drag.
