Save any sort of thing to just about anywhere
Authored by: nevyn on Aug 16, '03 10:11:20AM

Well, uh. If you want to save text clippings, just grab the text, and drag it to the desktop. You'll get a nice text file with all the text, no size limit. I have a folder in my dock whereto I drag text clippings, like good quotes, cool unix commands, memories from chats and reminders.
You can drag from any application. It's a bit tricky though, it doesn't work the same way as in Classic Mac OS. In Mac OS X, to make sure you drag and don't just select, hold the mouse button with the cursor over the text still for a second, *then* drag. I love the effect - fully styled text floating free in "mid-air" while you drag it ;)
