The .textclipping file extension or more appropriately, .textClipping with a capitalized C, is an extension normally associated with Macintosh computers. The file is created when the user, after a particular text is selected, dragged the text anywhere in Macintosh Computer. For example, a string of text from a Word document or a saying from a particular prose is selected for quotation, the user can drag the text in the desktop and the system will treat it as a clipping. The clipping can be selected again and place it where the user needs it to be. And this file is in .textClipping format.
But .textClipping files can only be used within the Macintosh computer where it derived. Sharing the file to other computer even with the same operating system may not be possible because .textClipping file takes the specification needed for the computer where it is created and this specification may not be the same with other computer. And also a 0 byte memory data will show on the file if the user open the file with an application. TEXTCLIPPING files serve as a transport form of text from one document to another.
