Clippings on the desktop

Ever find yourself wishing you could quickly and easily save out just a small portion — a snippet — of a particular file? BeOS actually supports file clippings natively, although applications need to take advantage of the feature in order for it to be enabled.
StyledEdit does a nice job of this with text. Select a sentence, paragraph, or any portion of a StyledEdit document and drag the selection to your desktop. You’ll end up with a new file, called „Clipping from [filename]“. ShowImage does the same thing with images. Hold down the left Ctrl key while dragging a clipping out of ShowImage and a context menu will offer to translate the clipping into any file format for which a Translator is installed.
