Applications :: Text Edit - Unable To Open File Not In Correct Format

Apr 8, 2009

I have a document that I've been working on in Text Edit. When I went to open it today it would not open and I got the message "the file could not be opened because it is not in the right format". I don't remember saving it any differently, last time. The only thing I did was change the font to a larger size, a few minutes before I last saved it. Could it be that it then became such a large document that text edit can't open it or is there something else I might have accidently done.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Text Edit Won't Save With Correct File Extension?

Apr 17, 2012

I am trying to edit Haskell files with Text Edit. However when I save the file it automatically adds .txt or .rtf and won't let me use .txt. Even when I go into finder and change the file extension it immediately changes it back to .rtf or .txt. It works when I save perl files. How do I get Text Edit to save Haskell files? I am using Lion.

Applications :: Unable To Edit Project In IMovie / Edit And File Tabs Were Unable To Be Clicked

Jun 2, 2010

I have been working on a project in iMovie for a few days, and it has been working perfectly. Today, I opened up my project and I could not play the project (the red line would move, but no picture would show up in the upper right hand corner box) and ALL of the options in the "share" tab were gray and unable to click them. Many options in the "edit" and "file" tabs were unable to be clicked as well.

Another project i completed months ago is working perfectly. The clips in the events play/show up on the window in the upper right hand corner

Applications :: Simple Way To Import A Text File Format Into ICal?

Jan 22, 2008

I'm wondering if there is a simple way to import a text file format into iCal. I have a variety of operations that would become immensely easier to do if I could create a CSV file, for example, in Excel or Open Office and then just import that into iCal, rather than sit there and type each item individually.I have both event data and tasks that I need to do bulk imports for.

I've searched high and low and most of what I find involves importing CSV into other applications and then exporting it to VCal files before finally bringing the data into iCal.There has to be a simpler way.

OS X :: Using Text Edit File As To-do List?

May 14, 2009

I use a text edit file as a to-do list; however, it doesn't play nice. When I click on its icon, it pops up somewhere other than where I want it. I've tried "Preferences" and TextEdit help on and off line. I can't find any info on it. I'm probably not using the exact words that 'help' would recognize. I've tried saying "Simon Says" too, but that doesn't work either.

Software :: Text Edit File Lost - Possibility For Retrieval?

May 11, 2009

I worked on a document in textedit saving periodically for about five hours. I saved one final time and then closed the document. I just went to open the document and the original text document without all of my revisions opened up. Why would this have happened if I had been saving? Is there a way I can retrieve these files? I don't have time machine.

Applications :: Unable To Open Keynote Presentation File - File Corrupted?

Oct 18, 2010

Today I tried opening my keynotes presentation file to make amendments to it and when I double clicked on it, the program loading bar only loaded up a third of the way and then hanged. I then tried to save it to a flash drive and use it on a different computer, but when I tried to copy it over to the flash drive it gave me this error: "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "garment styles" could not be read or written error code - 36".

I have tried changing the file extension to a zip, then unzipping it and then renaming it but that did not work.(It wouldn't let me unzip it). I have also looked at the index file name to see if that was the problem, but that is as it should be.

I have also tried uploading it to a website and emailing it and it will not let me.

Is there anyway I can recover this file as I have been working on it for over a month and it is due next week, or will I need to start again?

OS X :: Always Text File Open With A Different Name?

Jun 1, 2009

why everythime I click on a .txt or other file, do I have to check the little box everytime to open every single .txt file with a different name? Sure if I open the same file again it will open with text edit but this gets old.

I love how Windows will open all .txt files with word pad or note pad but OS X is not like this. There has to be a better way.

Software :: Unable To Open Encrypted File / Recovering The Original File?

Aug 23, 2009

ok trying not to get a panic attack here. I downloaded espionge to encrypt my valuable files and while it was encrypting (AES 128 bit i think) the program froze and I had to Force quit it. Now I try to open my file (that i was trying to encrypt) and it looks f*^&# up. I can't open it, and when I tried to unmount the partially encrypted file, espionage gave me errors that it couldnt recover the original file.

I had basically all my life's valuable accumulated data in that folder (it was 10 Gb+). I will praise anyone to the end of my days that can somehow tell me how to restore my file to its original state. Usefull info:

1) AM planning to pay gazillions for recovery software if need be, but free alternatives are always better.

2) I never secure delete if that helps

3) I still have the .sparseimage for the file created by espionage. (P.S. sparseimage's size looks really close to the orignal, also 10 Gb +).

4) Newest version of OSX, and have an IMac.

5) after incident I haven't done anything (no installations or downloads) apart from writing this.

6) the encrypted file was gonna be in HFS+ i think

How would one go about editing a PDF. Also, if I edit it, I don't want anyone to be able to "undo" my changes and reveal the old content. It would also be nice if possible, if there is a way to "lock" the file such that it cannot be edited further.
