Copy portions of text clippings
Authored by: AveryTimm on Jul 21, '06 10:48:49PM

I just noticed this recently(within the last few weeks). I could never understand why you couldn't select text in a clipping. I don't remember it working in OS 9.

Copy portions of text clippings
Authored by: DanFrakes on Jul 22, '06 12:01:18AM

Totally by accident! I had opened a text clipping I wanted to copy, but when it opened it was blocking my view of a document I was looking at. So I tried to quickly move it, but missed the title bar and "dragged" the cursor inside the text area instead. When I copied and then pasted, I thought it was weird that only *some* of the text was copied. Then the wheels in my head started churning ;) I was thinking, "no, that can't be..." But it was.
