I just tried it by copying a folder of files, opened TextEdit and chose "Paste and Match Style" from the Edit menu. Worked well.What I miss most from OS 9 is the ability to highlight files and folders in a window, then copy and paste into a text editor to produce a list of the highlighted items from the OS window. That has never worked in any OS X.
Anybody know how to copy a window's contents as text?
I also tried it with Microsoft Word, QuarkXPress 7, InDesign CS3.....all pasted the file names as text.
