Drag and drop link idiosyncrasies with web browsers
Authored by: davidm on Mar 13, '05 11:28:43AM

Like "osxpounder," I couldn't get this to work as described, in TextEdit OR in Word.

TextEdit Help told me to go to the preferences pane and select "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files." I did so, quit and restarted, and tried again, but it still didn't work.

This is what DID work for me: drag and drop into a new TextEdit file (in RTF mode). Then save the file somewhere and close it. Then open it again, using the Open command from the File menu. In the dialog, check "Ignore rich text commands," and open your saved file. You will see the HTML code. (Note: if you open the file by dragging it to the dock, you won't get the open dialog and won't be able to check the "Ignore rich text commands" box.)

This takes a lot longer, but since I can't get it to work as described, it's all I've got! (Unless someone else can find what I'm doing wrong.)
