Drag path instead of URL

Dragging a record from EF into Terminal results in a URL instead of a path, which is never what I want. Same when targeting a text editor, where it’s almost never what I want. In case those can’t be distinguished programmatically, how about another esoteric preference?

I should just write a script that uses the clipboard.

You can Option-drag to Terminal to insert the file’s path. I’m looking at what can be done for other apps.

Here’s a script that copies the path to the clipboard.

In EagleFiler 1.6, I’ve changed it to drag the path.
