Gnome: drag text to file

Got this one by accident. In Gnome, if you drag some text and drop it to desktop or nautilus, it creates a file with the dragged text in it. Simple, but might come handy sometimes..

Drag the text

After dropping, you land into file rename mode :)

  1. wasn't aware of similar function on OS X, but it auto names the file with first few words and open as small convenient text box. Amazingly when I dragged the file to text box, it behaved as clip of text rather than file, I repeated same process with text file but without any success.
    It feels nice to discover something by yourself :)
