I wanted to edit the text of a clipping. I selected the clippings pane of the inspectors tab and clicked edit clipping.
The clipping opened in TextEdit (I haven’t changed the open with for those files on this Mac yet)
I made a minor change to the text. First time it was just moving quote marks. Second time I just typed a space at the end of the line and then deleted it.
I clicked save and the clipping disappeared from the inspector and the clippings menu.
It’s still in the folder. My thinking is that after making the edits TextEdit changed its format to rtf.
The problem is that TextEdit doesn’t have an option to save a file as text. You can duplicate a file and then save it with the .txt extension.
In short, I’ve resolved the issue for myself on this Mac, but this could be an issue for others, especially new users. Not sure how to fix it in SD.
