Does anyone have a way to add these to a smart folder? I use these daily for grabbing news and OS info - this would be a great way to organize the 100's of these I have...

Thanks,
SB

There are a few ways you can do this. The first way is to simply use the Name filter and enter .textclipping. Make sure you have contains selected from the popup menu and not is.

Another way to do this is more precis. Use the same steps from above but also use the kind option. Press the Same As... button and select a .textclipping file you already have on your computer. Smart Folders will fill in the necessary information for you. Then click ok and your done.

I wasn't able to make it work the second way...
I will try with the name, as in your first example.

Thanks,
Scott

The reason why you probably couldn't make it the second way is because it does not have a type code which is common in Mac OS X documents. The first method should work for you. Smart Folders would need a more precis name filter such as an ends with option or extension is option. I will look into adding it for the next release.
