Thanks to Allan Odgaard for pointing out the shared find clipboard in OS X. Highlight text in one application and hit Command-E. Go to another application, hit Command-G, and it searches for that text. And all without disturbing the regular clipboard. That tip has saved me a boatload of time over the last couple of days as I’ve been reconciling data between various systems.

Please keep it clean, respectful, and relevant. I reserve the right to remove comments I don't feel belong.
