OS X :: Default Application For Unkown File Types?

Apr 17, 2009

The title says all. I want to open everything that isn't already associated with an app in textedit, instead of the horridly repetitive and time consuming "open with...". How do I do this?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change Default File Types?

Mar 23, 2012

I want to change the default file type settings for AVI files. I dont want quick time as the default program as some avi wont open. If I choose the file and select open with / and choose another application (VLC) then select always open with- it opens that file ok. But I want a global change so all AVI types open with VLC media player.

Does mac have similar to windows where I can edit file type associations to a purticular program

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

then select always open with- it opens that file ok. But I want a global change so all AVI types open with VLC media player.

OS X :: Way To Hide Certain File Types?

Dec 21, 2009

As some/most photographers know, when editing a RAW image in Photoshop (probably other Adobe applications as well), Photoshop creates a .xmp sidecar file that contains the RAW converter settings and saves them in the original folder that the image exists in. In order to create a cleaner, easier to view finder window is it possible to hide certain file types in OSX? Such as hiding all files that have the extension .xmp?

OS X :: How To Exclude Certain File Types From Recent Documents

Nov 17, 2007

I just saw this terminal script dock tip from [URL] where your recent Applications or Recent Documents among other "Recent" choices show up as a stack, which I thought was perfect because I could finally show my recent documents, which I couldn't do before due to smart folders not working with stacks. The only problem now is that the most inane file types show up there, such as iChat files and prefPanes, so I was wondering if anybody knew of script that would allow for you to exclude those doc types from showing up in recent documents.

Software :: IMovie And Importing Movie File Types?

Oct 12, 2001

Why in the world can't I import Quicktime files into iMovie? I'm guessing it has to do with frame rates or something. Or can I and am I just missing something?

If not, is there a file conversion tool anyone could recommend to convert Quicktime or other movie file types? Or do I have to somehow record out to a video to a deck and then import it back in to my iMovie?

I guess I expected iMovie to be something like Premiere. Would Final Cut allow me to do this?

MacBook Air :: Some Chart Types Cannot Be Combined With Other Chart Types

Jun 19, 2012

I am working on a MacBook Air (purchased Oct 2009) running Lion. While working in Excel 2011, I encounter the error "Some chart types cannot be combined with other chart types. Please select a different chart type." I am highlighting 46 cells to create a marked line graph. There are no other charts in the file. I called Microsoft support who told me they had not heard of this problem in Excel (only in PowerPoint). I also took it to an Apple Store Genius, who was unable to solve the problem, which is understandable, given that he does not work for Microsoft.  

I have recopied the data to a new spreadsheet, re-typed all the data to a new spreadsheet, and deleted plist files. When I sent it to a different computer (which was running Excel 2011 and Snow Leopard), I could make the figure but I cannot edit the figure or add data on my laptop.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Software :: How To Make Yahoo Default Mail Application?

Jan 29, 2008

Is there anyway to make Yahoo my default mail app, using Leopard 10.5.1? I can't seem to find anything on Yahoo's site.

Along those same lines, it's very annoying when I accidentally click a link, then Mail.app opens. However, I don't use Mail. Can I just delete the app?

If so, what would happen if I did accidentally click an emailto link (assuming that Yahoo can't yet be a default mail app)?

OS X :: Mail Application Message Sorting Stuck On Default

Dec 8, 2010

My mail.app seems to be stuck on the wrong sort default. Like most people, I prefer my messages sorted in date order. Somehow, my work mailbox has become stuck on sort by message subject. I can change it to sort by date, however, if I send an email (in any account), it reverts back to sorting by subject. Quitting and restarting Mail.app also reverts it to sort by subject. It now seems to be spreading to my other mailboxes.
