10.7: Drag a calculation from Spotlight
Authored by: ScottM on Sep 28, '11 08:09:06AM

Hitting Cmd-C while spotlight is still "open" should copy the calculation results to the clipboard -- at least it has and still does for me in both Snow Leopard and Lion...

I believe this also worked in Leopard.

10.7: Drag a calculation from Spotlight

CMD-C will copy the highlighted result of your search from spotlight. With a calculation, this is the result, with an app, it's the path to the app[1]. If I highlight a dictionary term, I get the phonetic spelling: argument |ˈärgyəmənt|

If I highlight a contact or email, I get the path to that address book entry or email. Not too useful, I suppose.

[1] If I search for, say, Safari, and CMD-C, the following text is in the clipboard: /Applications/Safari.app
