(History: I keep a folder of clippings of commonly used phrases and FAQ answers, as I double as a help-desk sort of person for another site, and tire of re-typing everything. Prefer just to drag answers over. But when they become .rtf docs, it doesn't work!)

Oh. Thanks for posting. Seems simpler than using Jumpcut even, with a "NewTxtDoc.txt" on the desktop. I already have Expose set up appropriately so it should be a breeze to implement. Putting aliases to my "filing folders" (only 2) on the desktop should make the process even more direct.

It's not talking about text. It's talking about a text clipping.
Then again, I'm not really sure of the value of getting the contents of a clipping onto the clipboard. The whole point of them is that you should be able to drag the clipping file itself into any context that allows text entry and its contents will be inserted there.

Figure out what process is doing that and disable it. This is not something the OS just does, and it's not even some kind of trivial one-step task you could reasonable do by accident. RTF is marked up text in the data fork of a file. Text clippings store their content in the resource fork.
